dog containment systems are products of great help for all those dog owners who care about the safety and happiness of their pets. These electronic systems work on the basis of the negative reinforcement training method; the transmitter placed inside the house sends a radio signal to the collar around the neck of the dog, and the collar issues aversive stimuli, like a beep of warning or a mild and painless electric shock. This system starts on the moment the dog approaches the invisible boundary set up around the designated containment area.
These aversive stimuli give the dog unpleasant sensations and it will soon discover that it can avoid these disagreeable feelings by simply stopping at a certain point when it hears the warning sound.
