According to American Kennel Club, Golden Retrievers are known to be eager to please. Goldens are loyal and outgoing family dogs. Due to their easy to train personality, they are often seen as working dogs. You can see them serving as guide dogs or search-and-rescue partners.
Here is Lambeau's Story!
Lambeau is a five-year-old Golden Retriever who enjoys making new friends! Lambeau also enjoys taking walks with his dog mom, Jill, in Columbia, Missouri. His favorite thing to do while on a walk is to take the leash by his mouth and walk himself home.
Why did Lambeau's parents contact Invisible Fence of St. Louis?
Due to Lambeau's very friendly nature, he loves to greet the neighbors whenever he can. As a result, Lambeau would stray from his yard and go near the road. Like most dog owners, Lambeau's safety is important to Jill. She wanted peace of mind that Lambeau would be safe in his yard.
After some thought, Jill decided that an electric dog fence may be best. She contacted her local Invisible Fence Dealer for assistance. Invisible Fence of St. Louis helped guide Jill in the right direction and recommended the Boundary Plus Wired System.
"He just wanted them [the neighbors] to pet him!" - Jill
How did Invisible Fence of St. Louis help Lambeau from getting too close to the road?
Jill's local dealership came out and got started on training sessions for Lambeau. They helped get Lambeau's yard set up with the Boundary Plus Wired System. It is the original advanced pet fence technology, offering the longest range, the most room to play and exclusive free pass. Where traditional dog fencing takes away play area in the yard and is easy for your pet to run through, Boundary Plus Wired prevents "break outs" by creating the boundary based on time, not distance.
"We can now let him outside and know he won’t run into the street, and we can go inside for a minute and leave him out. The customer service is great. The trainer was very good and extremely helpful." - Jill
