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 Cochrane 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 Cochrane AB?
Keeping your dog on your property where it belongs generally means building a fence. This is an expensive investment in your dog and property. If you live in a urban or suburban setting most likely you will have to apply for expensive building permits. However if you love your dog, have spent money and resources in training it may be good investment. Letting your dog out in the yard and knowing her will be there when come to let him in the house gives you peace of mind. As an alternative you can install a dog electric fence that is designed to keep your best friend at home without all the expense of a physical fence.
All electric dog fences use a buried wire that is located along the outside of the area that you want to confine your dog to. This buried wire acts as an antennae that is attached to the fences base unit or transmitter. The transmitter produces radio frequency that are picked up by the receiver on the dogs collar. There are two different dog electric fence designs. Electric dog fences that use electric stimulation work by giving your dog a warning tone as it approaches the location of the buried wire. If the dog continues to approach the buried wire it will receive an electronic correction. A second type dog electric fence also uses a warning tone as the dog approaches the wired but then uses a spray of citronella to correct the dog. In either case your dog will have to be trained to properly interact with the electric fence.
Your dog will need to be conditioned and trained before the dog electric fences become effective at keeping your dog safe at home. This training normally takes about 30 days to accomplish if your train your dog for about 45 minutes each day. Depending on the personality of your dog it may even take longer to complete this critical training. Electric dog fences do not always work with every dog. It should be noted that the fence systems that use the citronella spray have a much higher failure rate compared to those that use an electronic correction. In addition a dog can also condition themselves to the correction of both systems by quickly running through the correction zone of the fence. It is critical that the initial training be done thoroughly or your investment into the electric dog fence will be wasted.
Dog electric fences are obviously not as effective as a physical fence at protecting your dog and keeping it where it belongs. In addition even if your dog is restrained by the electric dog fence it does not keep stray dogs or other animals from entering the containment area and attacking your dog. A few years back a timber wolf killed a friends black Labrador retriever in Northern Michigan while it was controlled by a dog electric fence. Obviously a physical fence would have done a better job of protecting his prize hunting dog. Never the less electric dog fences are very popular with many dog owners.
Considering using an electric dog fence to contain your dog? Keeping your dog on your property where it belongs generally means building a fence. An electric dog fence may be a good alternative.
Are Invisible Dog Fences Worth the Money?
A traditional way to "fence" in dogs and other animals is through the use of physically erected fences. There are supposed to prevent animals from entering and leaving the specified area. Some fences are equipped to release a current when touched. If you're worried your dog may never come home again from his neighborhood strolls, such a pet containment system is available. Some studies show, however, that a pet boundary control system, without the use of erected fences, tend to be more cost effective over time. Further, they're more preferred in areas where ordinances prohibit installing physical fences.
What is a fence without a fence?
It's simple, the goal is for your dog to keep inside your area. An electronic dog fence is a system wherein wires are buried around your area. Flags marks them, planted in measured intervals, but these are small flags not as visually intrusive as physical fences. The dog wears a collar that emits a warning sound when it nears the boundaries. The collar gives him a corrective shock whenever he exceeds that boundary. With some training, the dog realizes that he is not to go beyond the area wherein he hears the warning sound.
So even though there are no physically erected fences publicly visible, there might as well be, since the dog will keep inside the area marked by the flags. Naturally, any other animal (human beings included) who does not wear the collar, are unaffected by the virtual fence. Because of the space retain, or reclaimed, some dog owners choose an electronic dog fence to physical fences.
Other ways of keeping your pet inside a marked perimeter
There are alternative ways to this pet containment system's set up. One system offers an alternate set up - instead of buried wires, radio signals sent from a device take the form of a marked area. A designated radius replaces the buried wires, and when the dog nears the edge of that boundary, it receives a warning sound; should it continue to ignore that sound, a mild shock follow. Another system is possible via the use of the Global Positioning System, which some dog owners find more sophisticated compared to the other two. Should the dog try to ignore the warning sound, the static correction sets in - this is the same condition that applies for all three set ups: the buried wire, the radio signal set up, and the GPS system.
You can adjust or increase the intensity of the static correction the dog receives when it tries to get past the marker flags, and ignore the warning sounds. Remember that for you to get the most of this electronic dog fence, your dog must be trained and rewarded for a specified period, until it heeds the warning tones and static corrections, and stays inside the perimeter.
Worried about where your dog goes to? Why not look into setting up an electronic dog fence? With an electronic dog fence, not only will your dog stay in your area, but you won't have to install physical fences that might ruin your real estate's aesthetics.
