Will My Dog Be Scared to Leave Our Property to Go on a Walk? Follow
- Halo Collar
When your dog starts to learn where the boundary is on your property, they may be hesitant to cross that boundary, even when fences are off (i.e. if you are taking them on a walk).
However, over time your dog will learn that they can pass that boundary when on the leash and with their human. You just need to make sure to turn off fences when you are going to leave the house with your dog so that they don't receive Prevention Feedback when you cross the boundary.
Make sure to move confidently past the normal location of your fence boundary without hesitation - the dog will feel that confidence and begin to understand the conditions of when they can and cannot cross that boundary.
The Ignore Fences Beacon Function serves as a great feature of the beacon because it allows you to place a beacon in your pocket and once you set it to Ignore Fences mode in the settings, you can walk through your boundary without ever having to turn your fences off. We have had some users place an "Ignore Fences" beacon in their car so that when they take their dog on a ride, they can just drive through the boundary as the beacon protects the collar from receiving any feedback!
As long as the collar is within range of the beacon in ignore fences mode, it will not receive feedback. For more information on how to adjust the beacon settings, please visit our Beacon Functions: Keep Away vs. Ignore Fences article.
