Peace of Mind

Contain-A-Pet of Richmond

Thanks to Contain-A-Pet for helping me secure my two large Labs. One had a habit of exploring the neighborhood and being found close to a main highway.  Since the installation of the underground fence system I have had no problems with him taking his trips.  Both Labs have adjusted and enjoy a 3 acre lot by running and playing and I have gained peace and confidence that they are safe.  Thanks to Jake and You for your professional job and follow ups.  What a great investment!

It has come to our attention that there is a fence company that is trying to sell an invisible type puppy fence to puppy owners for puppies from eight to twelve weeks of age.

If you love your dog, please do not do this!!

Your puppy can be psychologically effected if you allow this to happen. Behavior research has shown that every puppy goes through a “fear imprint” stage from 6 to 16 weeks of age. Anything that can mentally effect them during this period can psychologically damage them for life.

  • This can mean making a puppy into a fearful, shy and timid dog as it grows older.
  • This can result in a house trained dog to begin using the bathroom throughout your house.
  • Or this can mean that your dog can grow up to be aggressive towards other animals or other people.

Why take this chance if it is not necessary?  Have you ever considered that at 8 – 12 weeks a puppy is no more than just a baby?

People or companies that would do this know absolutely nothing about dog behavior.  This is cruel and unusual treatment of a puppy.  Now you understand why some people think electronic underground fencing is harmful to pets (which it isn’t if done properly).

If you choose to invest in an underground puppy fence with another company … that is your choice. Please do not put your puppy on the dog containment system at this age. Ask any veterinarian or dog behaviorist or real dog trainer what they think.  I trust that they will concur with our comments.

If you want to give me a call, I will be happy to answer any questions you may have … from puppies to dog training and fencing in the Richmond and Fredericksburg areas.  Those of you who know me know that dog’s are my life.  I am a professional trainer.  I am the loccal Contain-A-Pet Dealer.  I promise you I will never steer you wrong.  Life is too short … and too precious.

Contain-A-Pet of Richomnd,

Wanted to let you know how pleased we have been with our new Contain-A-Pet electric dog fence system. Moving to rural New Kent County from Charlotte, N.C. was a big change for our family including our dog Dusty. We were fortunate enough to get a home with an acre of land and didn’t want to break up our beautiful back yard with a fence. We know we made the right decision to go with Contain-A-Pet. Dusty adjusted quickly thanks to your training and we would definitely recommend Contain-A-Pet electric dog fence system to anyone.

Thanks for being so thorough with Dusty’s training and the installation.


Brian and Jan Chandler
