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 Cardston 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 Cardston AB?
As a responsible dog owner, it is up to you to ensure that your dog is safely contained within the confines of your front or back yard. It is not always possible to keep a close watch on your dog, and this is when underground dog fences can become an important tool.
Underground dog fences are systems that are comprised of a length of wire that is buried underground to encompass a certain area, a transmitter that plugs into a standard outlet and a collar to receive the transmitter signal. With most systems, when your dog approaches the buried wire, he will receive a warning signal, which gives him a chance to move away from the boundary.
If your dog ignores the signal and continues toward the boundary of the wire that is buried, he will receive a correction or shock that will not harm him, but will let him know that he cannot proceed. It is important to familiarize your dog with the boundary of the buried wire, and then to work with him to train him not to go past this boundary.
Most dogs will understand these limits within a short time, especially if they receive the correction at least one time. Each boundary can be customized to fit well within the parameters of your yard to best suit your particular needs. Once your dog is trained and has become familiar with the boundary of the wire, you can rest assured that he will remain in your yard.
There is no need to hire a professional to install underground dog fencing. You simply decide how much area you will enclose, measure out the wire and then bury it about two inches underground. The instructions will let you know how close the transmitter box needs to be to the wire, and once everything is installed, you can fit your dog with the radio collar. It is equally important to check the life of the battery within your dog's radio collar to ensure that it is working properly.
This can bring peace of mind for many people who are concerned that their dog will wander off and become lost. The cost of an underground system can be anywhere between $400 and $800, depending upon many factors. However, when you compare the cost of underground dog fences to potential veterinary bills for injuries to your dog, you can see the effective cost savings when you invest in a system such as this.
Invisible Dog Fence: A Safe Way to Fence Your Dog
If you are interested in introducing your dog to the in-ground fence correction, then your dog must have already mastered the first step: Introducing Your Dog to the Fence. By now your dog should have learned its boundaries and boundary markers, meaning it is time to start the correctional training. The first thing you need to do is to turn on the levels of correction either from the collar, transmitter, or by removing any masking tape you may have used while training your dog what to do when it hears the "beep". Next, place the collar on your tight snuggly to ensure that contact is made to your dog when correction is needed. A good rule of thumb is make the collar tight while leaving enough room to fit two fingers between the collar and your dog's neck.
It is now time to set the level of correction needed for your pet. This will vary from one dog to the next but generally you will want to place small and compliant dogs on the medium-low setting, for a medium sized dog set the correction to medium-high, and for a large or stubborn dog, place the correction setting to high.
When setting the correction level, many owners set the collar on a low setting because they do not want to hurt their beloved animal. However, this can actually have an adverse affect on your. If the correction level is set too low, your dog will learn that the correction is not that bad and will not mind overstepping its boundaries. If you set the collar to a higher setting, your dog may experience some discomfort a few times but they will quickly learn to stay away from the boundary. Under no circumstances should your dog be able to cross the boundary line, if they are allowed to cross the line, they may learn that the short duration of the correction may be worth it to leave the boundary once they see that there is no correction once they cross the boundary. It is for this reason that we recommend setting the collar to a higher setting.
While you are training your dog, if it does not seem to react to the correction, you may have the correction level set too low. Try turning up the correction and look for a greater reaction from your dog. If you feel that your correction is set high, check to make sure that the contacts are making a clean connection to your dogs neck. This could involve checking to make sure that the collar is tight enough or trimming your dogs fur if they have a thick coat.
Once your dog's collar is on correctly, remember to start the training session with some play time with your pet. Then put your dog on a long leash, get close to the boundary (about a yard away) and let your dog wander. During this step, do not lure your dog over the boundary, let your dog naturally wander and explore it on their own; this may take a few minutes but will be effective. Once your dog's collar starts beeping, continue to let them wander over the boundary line and let your dog experience the correction. Although it may take a second or two, you will notice when your dog is shocked as it will visibly react and recoil. Once this happens, quickly pull your dog back into the safe area of your yard saying "no" three or four times and then praise your dog once it is safely back in your yard.
Once your dog receives a correction, do not comfort your dog or panic. Remember, the correction is more surprising to your dog than it is painful. Your dog looks up to you for guidance, if you act like the correction is no big deal your dog will learn that is a normal consequence for crossing the boundary. Remember to praise your dog anytime it comes close to the boundaries and then stops or turns its back to the flags. This means that your dog is associating the boundary and the beeps with consequences and is choosing to stay in the safe area of the yard. Remember to play with your dog at the end of the training session to reaffirm that the yard is a good and safe place for your dog.
While training your dog, do not let them get corrected more than once per training session. You do not want your dog to have an unpleasant training experience. Should your dog get shocked, turn off the correction levels and continue with training in the same fashion as step one. Repeat this training step 3 or 4 times a day for about a week. If, for some reason your does not seem get the point, go back to the first step in the process as laid out.
