Wireless Dog Containment

 

Even though an invisible, underground, wireless or other electric dog fence systems cannot be seen or touched, they do a fairly good job in keeping your dog safe within the exterior areas of your demarcated property. These unique dog containment systems are designed to prevent your dog from straying, being a nuisance to your neighbors and staying safe from accidents or attacks by other animals. It is not only an innovative way to keep your dog safe, but will also save you a lot of money compared to installing a traditional fence in Kelowna BC. Moreover, they will also give your home and garden a cleaner, more aesthetic look.

If you find that a traditional fence is beyond your budget, or if such a fence contravenes rules laid down by your neighborhood community, then installing any type of invisible dog fencing system would be the best option. There are some highly effective fences available today, so you can easily choose one that suits your needs and budget.

One of the most popular options available today is the “radio electric” dog fence. It is designed for the sole purpose of deterring your dog from moving out of the demarcated areas of your Kelowna BC property or acreage. 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 Kelowna 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 Kelowna BC?

Electronic Fencing

 

Do you get complaints from your neighbours about your dog escaping? If a dog is left to wander it can create problems in the neighbourhood. Being caught by the ranger or causing a traffic hazard could be very costly. As the owner of the dog you are responsible.

It is therefore very important that every owner keeps their pet securely on their own property. Physical fencing of the area may not be practical in some homes and other residential surroundings and some can still get out.

So what about an electronic fence? Using a radio Pet Barrier has gained popularity due to their ease of use and operation and how effective they are at keeping a dog safe.

How Electronic Fences Work?

A radio fence uses a wire that runs along the perimeter of the area containing the dog. Mostly the wire can be attached to an existing fence or buried underground. A radio signal is projected some distance from the wire.

An electronic receiver placed in a dog collar is worn by the dog which produces a beep followed by a mild static pulse when it approaches the wire. On receiving the beep and static stimulation the dog is trained to withdraw from the boundary area. Boundary flags are often used to signal the 'No-Go' zone during the initial training.

This fencing method is less expensive than traditional fencing and can be installed by a professional who will also complete the necessary training. Even if the area is irregular and uneven the radio fence wire can be adjusted to suit the layout of the property. It is common to be able to leave gates open once it is trained correctly.

What You Need to Know Before Training?

To be successful with electronic fences, extra care should be taken to train the dog, you should discuss your property, your fences and your dog's personality with an experienced fence provider. Incorrect selection or poor training could see your efforts and investment go to waste. The training should begin step by step so that the dog learns how to behave correctly at the boundary.

Train Using Low Stimulation First:

It is essential that low levels of stimulation are used during the training process. Using high levels initially, may result in fear and insecurity in the dog. Over doing it could create a 'Porch Sitter' where the dog sits at the back door too frightened and scared to enter the yard or area where dog fencing has been erected.

The dog collar (receiver collar) should have adjustable levels to start the electronic stimulation at a comfortable level and increase slowly. A dog that is scared of the radio Pet Barrier is more likely to rush through the system in a fear based response. Low levels help the dog understand the new boundary and make their own decision to stay inside the radio dog fence boundary.

The boundary line can be marked with small flags in order to teach the dog to stay inside the 'safe zone'. Only audible beeps should be applied for a few days, the trainer can just alert the dog to a safe withdrawal on hearing the beeps.

After a few days, the static stimulation the dog feels can be gradually increased through the adjustable levels on the receiver. Pretty soon the dog will be refusing to go past the boundary flags, a result that can be rewarded. Taking it slow helps the dog understand the boundary and prevents any run through. It is unwise to rely on the static stimulation; the training is crucial. The Flags can be removed at a later date.

After each training session the dog should be praised for his good behavior. It is better not to scold the dog as this approach may make the dog scared of the training area. The dogs should be monitored for a few days even after the training before leaving them alone in the yard with electric fencing or radio dog fencing.

Seek the advice of a professional before making a selection on the Pet barrier you need. Your dog's safety depends on it.

 

Wireless Dog Fencing - Benefits of Wireless Dog Fencing

Electric Dog Fencing

 

Almost everyone has heard of invisible dog fences, but far fewer folks really know what they are and how they work. Following are the top ten misconceptions I've heard from my clients:

 

    1. MYTH: Invisible dog fences are really expensive. A pro-installed fence will likely cost you anywhere from $1000 to $3000, depending on the size of your yard and how many pets you wish to contain. A DIY fence that you install yourself should cost you less than $500, including all materials. Either way, it's less expensive than a traditional chain link, wood, or wrought iron fence.

    2. MYTH: Invisible dog fences don't work. They're actually a pretty reliable way to keep your dog in your yard, but only if:
      • You consistently follow the recommended training process. Every brand includes a training program that is designed to teach your pet how to respond when he encounters his invisible boundary.
      • You purchase a fence that includes a multi-level receiver (the device your dog wears on a collar around his neck). Without multiple training levels, you can't customize the training to your pet's size and temperament. That means a large or stubborn pup may not respect the fence and a small or sensitive one may become frightened.
      • You put the receiver on your pet every time he goes outside. Most dog fences make a high-pitched sound when your pup first encounters the invisible boundary, and then emit a static correction if he continues to move toward the fence rather than back into your yard. Without the receiver, your pet will eventually realize he's not getting either one of these cues to stay in his yard.

 

  1. MYTH: All invisible dog fences are just alike. Every model of fence offers different features -- this is even true of different models within the same brand. So, make sure you choose the model that's right for your pet's size and temperament. 

  2. MYTH: You don't need to train your pooch to understand an invisible dog fence. In reality, if you don't train your pet to understand how to respond when he encounters the invisible boundary, one of two things will happen: he will run right through the fence or he will become confused and afraid of your yard.

  3. MYTH: An invisible dog fence will hurt my dog. If you purchase a high-quality fence and you patiently teach your pet how it works, it will not hurt your him. What will hurt is getting hit by a car or attacked by another animal as your pet roams outside your property.

  4. MYTH: You don't need to put the receiver collar on your pet once he learns to avoid the invisible boundary. The only way an invisible dog fence will reliably protect your pet is if you put the collar on him every single time he goes outside.

  5. MYTH: An invisible dog fence is just like an electric fence. An electric fence will indiscriminately zap anyone who encounters it (and that zap is the same whether you're a 1000 pound cow or a 25 pound toddler), while an invisible dog fence will correct only those pets who wear a receiver. Also, unlike an electric fence, if your fence includes a multi-level receiver, you can customize and control the level of correction your pet receives -- that way you never use a higher correction level than is necessary.

  6. MYTH: Some breeds just won't respect an invisible dog fence. Breed is irrelevant. I've seen fences work well for large and stubborn breeds like Pit Bulls, Boxers, Rottweilers, and German Shepherds, as well as small, sensitive breeds like Chihuahuas, Yorkies, and Pugs.

  7. MYTH: My dog is too old to learn how to respond to an invisible dog fence. Unless your pet is so old that his health is failing, he is never too old to learn new tricks!

  8. MYTH: Invisible dog fences only work for dogs. Personally, I've trained cats and even goats -- that's right, stubborn ol' GOATS -- to reliably respond to an invisible boundary.
