Phase 5 -- Dog Monitoring -- DAY 16 AND BEYOND

Phase 5

Your dog should now be comfortable within the Roaming Area and reluctant to cross into the Trigger Zone with or without distractions.  It will be up to you, the owner, to keep an eye on your dog after completing the training and monitor his behavior.  Additional training may prove to be necessary.  After three additional weeks of successful dog containment, you can begin to gradually remove the training flags by taking away every other flag, every few days.


Remember:  Every dog is unique and may respond differently depending on age, size, temperament and ability to learn. Adjust your training accordingly.
