I've never had an electric fence so I've never really wondered about consequences of using a fence and how it could hurt training a young dog CC. A buddy is installing the fence, (Mother in law moved in with a disobedient dog) and so they are going to fence in the yard. His 6 month old pup will begin CC soon and I told him to hold off on adding her to the Fence training until I received some feedback.
Here are my thoughts - being shocked from a fence is supposed to stop a dog in its tracks and teach it to go no further, boundaries. If he were to teach the fence first, or at all, could this hurt progression with CC and potentially make the dog stop dead in its tracks when there is a collar correction?
Looking forward to some thoughts!
