Invisible Electric Dog Fence

 

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 North Okanagan 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 North Okanagan 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 North Okanagan 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 North Okanagan BC?

Dog Containment System

 

After fifteen years in the dog fence business I have seen a lot of products out there. Dog Guard, Pet Stop, Pet Safe, Dog Watch, Innotek and many more. I thought I would give my professional opinion on the best fence for the safety of your pet.

First is the underground, there are many brands to choose from. With a underground dog fence there is a transmitter typically installed in a dry area either in a garage or basement. After the transmitter is installed the loop wire is then installed. Some yards are larger than others so when you lay out the loop wire keep in mind that where you put the wire the dog will stay back anywhere from 4 feet to up to ten feet depending on the size of the yard. There are different methods that can be used to do this.

I would recommend calling the local tool rental store to see if they rent a machine for this, most of them do these days. Another way is to use a good lawn edger cut a slot then use a garden weed tool (short handled tool with a v at the end) to poke the wire down in the trench. When installing the wire remember to leave enough wire to get from the perimeter into the garage or basement. What I do is leave enough wire to insert both ends into my cordless drill and use the drill to twist the two together. Once twisted this area will not omit any signal so it will be safe for your dog to cross and safe in the garage or basement. This will also make it easy to lay the two wires in the same trench and easy to staple to the wall in the basement or garage. OK the wire is in three steps left. First use a skill saw with a asphalt blade to score a line in the driveway. After the score is done use a screwdriver to poke the wire into the score. To seal the drive I found that wet-dry roofing is not only the most cost efficient but also most effective. Next Place the flags the same distance away from the wire around the perimeter. Final step train your dog. As you can see there is a lot of work involved in the underground electronic dog fence.

The underground pet fence receiver activates when it enters the signal field and the wireless receiver activates when the receiver leaves the signal field.

OK now we now what is involved with the underground dog fence lets talk wireless.

The wireless pet fence is only manufactured by Pet Safe. The set up is simple depending on the size of your yard. Lets say you have a 1/4 acre lot.

On a 1/4 acre lot the ideal place to install the transmitter would be in the center of the house. Next install the transmitter by simply plug it in to a nearby outlet. After the transmitter is installed place the battery into the receiver. After the battery is installed it is time to mark the pets boundary with the flags. On a 1/4 acre the transmitter range will need to be turned close to all the way up. Unfortunately with the wireless fence it only works in a 360 degree radius of the transmitter, in other words up to a 90 foot radius around the transmitter making at total of 180 feet around. Take your flags and receiver and start walking to the edge until the receiver activates, then put in a flag. Continue around the property until you have flags about 10 feet a part around the entire property, then train your pet.

There you have it the wireless dog fence VS the the underground dog fence. If you have a small yard like a condo or town house then the wireless is probably for you. If you have a large yard then a underground fence is right for you. I my self have both I use the underground fence at home, not just to contain my pet but also it keeps him out of the gardens. I also have it wired in areas inside my house to keep them out of the cats area and the garbage. The wireless system I keep in my camper and flag a small area for them when camping. My dogs Chance, Frannie and Senior Nutts love the freedom at home or on vacation and I feel great knowing they are safe. I use the Pet Safe underground fence and the Pet Safe wireless system.

 

Wireless Dog Fencing

Wireless Electric Fence

 

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.
