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 Grande Prairie 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 Grande Prairie AB?
The first thing you want to do when introducing your dog to its new in-ground fence system is to make sure that the collar will not use correction on your dog. To do this, many collars and/or transmitters have an option to turn the correction levels off. If your system does not have these options, you should be able to place masking tape around the prongs to put a barrier between the collar and your dog.
Once you place the collar on your dog, you will want to start (and end) each training session with some play time. You want to make sure your dog views your yard as a play area and does not associate it with a negative place to be. Place a long leash on your dog and begin to walk your dog throughout your yard stopping about a yard away from your boundary line and flags.
Now let your dog wander until it hears the beep of the collar, then quickly pull back on the leash and firmly say "no" three to four times. While telling your dog "no", make sure you are very firm and getting your point across. Most dogs hear the word "no" several times a day so it is very important that you dog is understanding that you mean business. If you have a partner to help you with training, have them shake a boundary flag while saying "no" to further emphasize the urgency of the beep. Also, when telling your dog "no" be sure to say it quickly and confidently; saying it quickly will get your point across that it needs to move back into the yard and away from the beep quickly.
Once your dog has returned into the safety of the yard praise the dog for a job well done. Remember to play with your dog at the end of the training session for a few minutes to keep them happy with their yard and to think of it as a safe haven to play in. Repeat these steps 3 to 4 times a day for a week. Training times may vary from one dog to another.
I hope this helps many of you current electronic dog fence owners and future fence owners train your dog properly for it's new boundaries.

Prevent Your Dog Going Astray With a Wireless Dog Fence
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.
