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 Salmon Arm BC 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 Salmon Arm BC?

Electric Fence Small Dog

 

Your best friend Fido has a tendency to chase cars. You want to let him enjoy the outdoors, but sometimes he's too quick for you to catch, and before you know it, he's tearing down the street after a truck. You're left searching for options. What should you do?

Well, ensuring that your dog stays in your lawn can be a bit of a challenge. Of course, it seems like with some training you could keep your dog safe in your yard, but temptation can often strike. That is where a wireless dog fence and collar can come in.

Wireless dog fences are exactly what they sound like. An electric fence that doesn't have any cumbersome wires. This will allow you the flexibility of not having to dig several holes in your lawn. Instead, you will be able to simply place the fences transmitter into an outlet that is near where you want your dog to be contained.

Basically, a wireless dog fence and collar will keep your dog into a area that is circular in nature. To use it you fasten the receiver collar onto your dog's neck. This collar will receive the signals from the wireless fence transmitter. The transmitter will be placed indoors in an outlet near the area that you'd like your dog to remain in. If your dog starts to go outside of the area that you've mapped out for them then a signal will be sent to your dog's collar.

Of course you want to know how that signal is going to keep little Fido in the area that you've designated for him. Basically, on the transmitter you would set the size of the circle's diameter, then holding the collar you can verify exactly where the circle is when it beeps. Once your zone is set up if little Fido starts to head out of it the transmitter will send a signal to his collar and it will sound a warning sound to alert your dog that he's headed in the wrong direction. If he doesn't return to the safe zone then a small electric pulse is sent to him. The pulse is not at all painful, but instead serves to shock him out of his current mindset.

Most wireless dog fences have several different features that can make them more appealing to you. Many wireless fences are portable which will allow you the flexibility to take it with you if you need to. Additionally, some varieties allow you to have an unlimited number of dogs monitored by the system. Another great feature is that your wireless fence can have a run through protection. Meaning, that if your dog takes off chasing something a signal will be sent to your dogs collar letting them know that they need to return to their specific area.

Your dog is not called your best friend for no reason. Our pets mean the world to us, and their safety should be the top priority of any dog owner. By using a wireless dog fence and collar, you will be able to provide your dog with the guidelines that they need, but the truth is that your dog needs guidelines. Giving them a routine and signal that lets them know where they can be will help keep them safe and happy.

Setting up flags to mark the boundary and training your dog are essential parts of establishing the boundary in your dog's mind.

 

The Electric Dog Fence: Underground Or Wireless

Electronic Fencing

 

Are you confused about which wire to use when getting your electronic dog fence. The 2 most common types of dog fence wire are 18 Gage and 20 Gage. Which should you choose for your situation and why? Obviously, both gages work for all underground fence systems or Innotek, PetSafe or other manufacturers would not pack their dog fence systems with 20 Gage wire. Perimeter Technologies pack their dog fence systems with 20 g or 18 g. This dog fence wire can often be very difficult to find, as individual rolls, unless the retailer actually sells the dog fence kits and sometimes they do not even sell the extra wire rolls separately.

However, there are some recommended guidelines that will help you decide which dog fence wire will be better for you. First 18 Gage is stronger and more durable and long lasting than 20 Gage Boundary wire. Solid core copper wire is better than stranded wire.

Here are some guidelines to follow:

Use 18 Gage if you have

 

  • Rocky soil or rocks
  • If you are not burying the wire
  • Many trees or vegetation
  • Larger than 5 acres

Use 20 Gage if you have:

 

 

  • Loose sandy or clay soil
  • Putting wire next to a fence
  • Few trees or vegetation
  • 5 acres or smaller area

 

PLEASE NOTE - If installing an electronic dog fence above ground, you will need to use lawn staples every 5 feet to keep the wire in place. If the wire moves around then the dog will become confused about where his boundaries are. These are sold in packages of about 100 staples. One package will take care of one 500 foot spool of wire. Where you cut grass, it is best to bury the wire.

A few important tips to keep in mind when purchasing a fence system:

-Installing the wire underground the best tool to use is an edger, a gas powered edger or an edger that also lays cable at the same time, it could be called a cable layer or edger-trencher. The wire only needs to be buried 2 -3 in but can go deeper if you want.

-Never mix 2 types of wire! Mixed wire can give you signal problems and affect the functioning of your system. If you use 20 Gage stranded to start, then stick with 20 Gage stranded. Don't go from stranded to solid core. The same goes for all the different types and sizes of wire. If more than 500 foot is being purchased for larger areas, make sure that extra wire is the same type of wire.

- If you are using the pre-twisted wire you must use 20 Gage twisted wire with 20 Gage solid core wire and if you are using 18 Gage wire for your fence you must use 18 Gage twisted wire. Pre-twisted wire is use to create a gateway or place where the dog can cross the dog fence wire and not get a stimulation or shock from his collar.

-NEVER attach or weave dog your fencing wire through a CHAIN LINK FENCE or metal fence; it will negatively affect the functioning of the fence systems.

-If you have an existing fence that your dog jumps, climbs over or digs under, it would be best to put the electric fence wire at least one foot inside the existing fence, not attach it to the existing fence. That way the dog will be able to get the collar, he is wearing, to cross the wire in order to get a shock . If the dog fence wire is too close to the existing wooden or chain link fence then the dog will not get a shock and not be deterred.

-If you are running the dog fence wire going through a forest or heavily treed area, where you cannot bury the wire, just leave it on the surface. Use staples or trees to keep the wire in place and the ground will grow up over it. It is important to bury the wire where you will be cutting grass over the wire.

-The wire is waterproof with a Polyurethane coating and can also go through wet or swampy areas and still work just fine.

-IMPORTANT, if your are ordering extra rolls of wire, you should always order an extra set of 50 boundary flags with every extra roll of 500 foot of wire that you purchase. It is important for your pet to know the boundary. If you order 1500 foot of wire for example, you should get 150 boundary flags.
