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 Picture Butte 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 Picture Butte AB?

Hidden Fence For Dogs

 

The Wireless Electronic Dog Fences are actually invisible fencing that consists of burying wire with transmitters. The wire is approximately 500 to 1000 feet in length and is initialed around a perimeter to keep a dog inside the area.

Dogs will wear a collar that has a receiver attached to it that will beep and then produce a light shock if the dog gets near the wire. Unlike a traditional fence these are not visible to the eye and are basically less expensive than purchasing and installing a traditional wooden or metal fence. Whereas these types of fences cost per foot, the electronic will normally be less than three hundred dollars for all materials required.

A wireless dog fence can be used in any area where there is a need to keep a dog inside a designated perimeter as well as keeping them out of a certain area. They are often used for keeping the animal out of a swimming pool or garden area and indoors for preventing entrance into areas such as a kitchen or bedroom.

These cannot simply be installed and forgotten. Dogs have to be trained of the association to the beep and shock. The amount of time required will depend on the dog. The wireless fence will keep the dog contained inside the perimeter but, it will not prevent other animals or people from entering.

The unit consists of a transmitter that will plug into the house and transmits radio signal. The collar placed on the dog is lightweight and will pick up the signal. The animal is not prohibited from running freely; it will only be shocked if the initial beep is ignored when they come in contact with the fence. The shock is actual a static sound that will only startle them and not hurt it.

When training them to stay inside the fencing area, it often helps to install small flags around the entire perimeter where the fence has been installed. This will help to train the dog to stay inside the area by associating the flags with the shock.

It is important to know that if a dog is stubborn or suddenly startled they may continue to run outside the barrier. If this happens they be discouraged from entering back into the area which will be difficult in not only getting them back in the yard but will make the training more difficult. The collar is battery operated so keeping fresh batteries installed is important.

Wireless electronic dog fences have many people concerned over the aggression thought to be involved with this type of training. The shock the dog receives feels to them as it would to a human that has walked on carpet and shocked someone. It will not hurt them but, it does require continuous training which may take several weeks in order for the unit to work effectively. Once the dog has received a shock they may test the perimeter frequently to see if it reoccurs so it is crucial that each time the pet is in the area being contained that the owner also have the pet in view for correct training to work.

Electric Dog Fencing

 

Electronic dog fences provide dog owners with an automated, electronic means to make sure their dogs do not go beyond the safety of their homes. It also helps dog owners make sure that their dogs do not do any inadvertent damage to other people's property.

It effectively keeps the dogs within the owner's property and helps dogs learn to know their boundaries. They are trained by the system to automatically stay away from the boundaries of the home. Electronic dog fences have the added advantage of not taking up any property space. They are totally controlled by the dog's collar, and the predefined areas the dog is allowed to stay in.

The great thing about electronic fences is the fact that they can be programmed and wired to protect other areas of your home that are prone to the playful mischief of your energetic dogs. This way you can protect fish ponds, flowerbeds, gardens, and other sensitive areas.

But how do these things work? They are pretty simple, if you come to think of it. Here is a step by step guide to how electronic dog fences are set up and used.

Your Dog's Electronic Fence

1. Area Wiring - First of all, thin antenna wires are buried around the perimeter of the areas you want off limits to your dog. These wires are usually parallel to your picket or perimeter fences that surround your property. These wires are light, not bulky and are pretty easy to install.

They can even be secured in non soil areas by means of normal attachments easily found at any hardware store. Just make sure they are safe from the elements and are not an impediment to your surroundings. These wires can be installed beside your fish pond, other pet cages, and off-limit areas.

The wiring can also be installed inside your home. It should be installed in a way that it does not become cumbersome. It can be laid out like normal cable wire. Just make sure it is secured to the walls or to stable furniture and is beyond the reach of toddlers or your pets. You could even put it under you rug or under your carpet.

2. Pet Collar - Your pet then is made to wear a special collar that can receive signals from the wires you just installed. It is this collar that acts as the fence. Your pet should be wearing the collar for the system to work. Without the collar, the electronic fence will uselessly benign.

The collar works using radio frequency and has a specially installed radio receiver to pick up signals from the antenna wires in your territory.

3. Train Your Dog - the systems sets off a very mild and harmless shock to the dog whenever it crosses the boundaries marked by the wires. The shock is just like static and will cause no harm to your dog. All it does is offer a small irritating 'reminder' to keep your dogs from moving beyond their permitted areas.

Also before it emits the shock, it gives off high-frequency beeps to warn the dog. Whenever the dog hears the beeps it will be alerted to the fact that the shock would come if the warning is not heeded. This ensures that the pet will not have to be reminded physically as much as it will be by audio.

You should also mark the areas off limits by using visual aids such as flags, and other visual aids. As the dog gradually understands and respects the boundaries, it will no longer need these aids to avoid the areas altogether.

Warnings and Conclusions 

Some owners are not comfortable with the fact that mild static is used to remind their pets of their boundaries. However, it should be noted that it is non-harmful and is a great alternative to cooping up a pet within a dark and dingy cage beyond the dog's comfort. 
Also electronic fences do not protect your dog against robbers as cages do. Thieves have to work at a cage or a series of gates to get to your dog. Although it keeps your pets from going out too far from the home, it does not keep others away from coming into your home.
