How to Program a Pet Stop Collar

By Mary Lougee | Updated September 26, 2017

The Pet Stop fence system has a GentleSteps training program to increase stimulation levels automatically while training your pet to stay in his boundaries. You can change the stimulation level on your pet's collar to a higher or lower setting to suit your training needs.

Step One

Remove the Pet Stop collar from your dog. Walk to the area where the transmitter is mounted on a wall.

Step Two

Press and hold the center "Set" button on the transmitter. The current signal length will start flashing in the LED display to the left of the transmitter. After 3 seconds, a flashing "98" will show in the display. Immediately release the "Set" button.

Step Three

Hold your dog's collar in one hand without touching the probes on the front of it. Move it toward the transmitter so it is 2 to 6 inches from the transmitter.

Step Four

Push the top button pointing upward to increase the stimulation level by one level or press the bottom button pointing downward to decrease the stimulation level by one.

Step Five

The flashing "98" on the displays stops for two seconds, then resumes flashing so you can make further adjustments to the stimulation level one at a time.

Step Six

Press the center "Set" button on the transmitter to save your new settings.
