One of the most popular options available today is the “radio electric” dog fence.

The invisible dog fence involves the use of two main components – a transmitter and a receiver (radio collar).

How the Dog Fences Works?
The fence has an electric wire fitted with a transmitter and installed underground all around the borders of your acreage or High Level AB property. This fence system works by giving out a beeping signal which is received by your dog’s radio collar, each time it (the dog) gets too close to the fence. If your dog continues to ignore the signals, a mild static shock is delivered via its collar to stop it from crossing the fence. However, the shock frequency can be adjusted to limit fear or harm to your dog.
Are Electronic Dog Fences Legal in High Level AB?
Fences are primarily used to set boundaries to your property. Most animals use body fluids to mark their territory, humans use fences. Fences also act to keep something in or out of a certain area. Dog owners know the importance of fences all too well. Fences serve as an important tool when it comes to the protection to and from their pets.
In some areas that don't allow putting up fences, the only way to keep their dogs in line is by using invisible boundries. Invisible ones are used to train dogs and set a boundary to them by drawing an invisible line in their minds. Once used for a period of time, the dogs will remember that going too far is bad so they will keep from crossing that line.
The system makes use of an underground boundary wires along with a dog collar. When the sensor on the collar gets in contact of the sensor of the boundary wires, it sends a shock through the collar which the dog will feel. The shocks are not painful, it is usually just enough to get the attention of your dog. When your dog is near the underground wire, the collar will make a beeping sound to alert your dog. Overtime these stimuli will train the dog not to go further than the boundary you have set.
One of the main problems of invisible dog fences is that other animals may enter the area. Sometimes these animals will come in contact of your dog, and if your pet is curious enough they will often chase those animals. If your dog is too focused on the stray animal and is not used to the invisible boundary system yet, chances are it will chase the stray animal beyond the limitations you have set. Of course this could only happen during the first few days or even weeks but by the time your dog has received enough shocks, it will respond to the warning sound.
The invisible dog fence is safe. The shock that the collar sends to your dog is far from lethal. Aside from keeping your dog inside your property, the it also serves as a training tool. Overtime the dog learns which areas are safe to approach and which ones are off limits. Of course, the invisible boundary works better if you reinforce it by training your pet regularly.
While some complain that their fences don't work for them, this should not be seen as a sign that the system does not work. There are several companies that develop this fencing system and although one brand might not work, others may be able to help. Before purchasing an invisible dog fence system, you should check whether the collar works properly. Make sure it produces a beeping sound several seconds before delivering a mild shock.
Tips On Crafting A Workable Dog Fence
I have found there are many reasons a invisible underground dog fence collar will activate in an area that it should not. The most common is a stray signal off of a cable TV line. This happens when the underground fence boundary wire piggy backs or runs on top of the cable TV line for a long distance.
There are different ways to fix this. The first thing I would look at is how large the fence signal field is, if it is larger than six feet (in other words the dog fence receiver activates six feet from the underground wire)and your pet does not test the fence there is probably room to turn the signal field down a little and that will fix the stray signal in most cases.
In a more severe case adjusting the field wont work. I would try removing the ground from the dog fence. If this solves the problem then the problem is in the common ground between the dog fence and the cable TV. To resolve this you simply need a new ground location for the dog fence. The easy thing to do is install a small ground rod outside the garage and attach the dog fence ground to the rod. You need to have a ground for the underground invisible dog fence if not your warranty will be void.
If removing the ground from the dog fence transmitter did not solve the problem try and remove the cable TV ground normally located outside near the electric meter. If this solves the problem what needs to be done is the cable TV needs to be re grounded where it comes into the house at the ground block. The ground block is attached to the house where the outdoor underground cable TV line meets the inside feed to the house and attached is a ground wire that runs to the electric meter or shares the same ground rod as the the electric meter. You must have a cable TV ground it is what protects your home from lightning damage or fire. I recommend to have the cable company do this or a licenced electrician.
If this does not solve your stray signal problem it is possible that it could be something setting off a signal similar to your underground invisible dog fence. It could be a cordless phone or another type of wireless device, take a walk around the house with the dog fence collar and hold it up to anything you may think could cause the problem and move it to another location. The invisible brand fence company has a wireless transmitter called the invisible mask. This will solve your dog fence stray signal problem as well. Most underground pet fencing has a 7K signal or a 10K signal the mask has a switch setting for both. If you have Pet Safe, Innotek, or Radio Fence it is most likely to be 10K any other brand probably 7K. The mask is designed to work with the invisible brand but I have seen it work with most other brands. The only one I have found it not to work with is Dog Watch brand dog fencing.
