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.

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 Stettler 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 Stettler AB?
Is an underground dog fence right for you and your dog? As suburbs continue to pop up around major cities, homeowners' associations are being formed and they are busy drafting policies. One of the main policies that they are enforcing is to restrict the size, the type and even the very existence of fences due to aesthetic reasons. They do not like the visual clutter associated with conventional fences.
If you live in such a neighborhood or if you are just looking for a less expensive and more maintenance free way to protect your dog, an underground dog fence is a good choice. These fencing systems consist of three components: a transmitter, underground wiring and a receiver placed on your dog's collar.
Transmitter. This must be mounted in a dry location like a garage or a shed and it must be near an electrical outlet which it will plug into. The transmitter will then emit a radio signal that will travel through the underground wiring.
Underground Wiring. This is a single strand of insulated wire that starts at the transmitter, goes around your property and then ends back at the transmitter. If you are installing an underground dog fence yourself, it is best to use something (a hose or spray paint) to give yourself a visual idea of where you want the wiring to go. You can also enclose vegetable gardens and swimming pools, or any other area where you do not want your dog to roam.
Receiver. A receiver will come connected to a collar that is lightweight and waterproof. You do not have to use the collar that comes with the system; you will be able to take off the receiver and put it on a collar that you already have. The receiver will need a battery that will probably need replaced about every three months. Some receivers come with a rechargeable battery so this is a good thing to inquire about before you purchase a system.
An underground dog fence will not harm your dog. It is recommended by vets and national humane societies; however, you will have to take the time to train your dog. Most systems offer three operating modes: a warning, a warning and a correction and a correction only. A dog must be trained to retreat back into the yard when they hear this warning. You will be surprised though at how quickly your dog will adapt its behavior to heed the warning and not go any further than the area you have laid out for them to roam. The best way to train them is to keep them on a leash since this is something most dogs are used to and you will also have control over their actions. A training video should be included with the system you purchase.
Knowing that your dog (this system works for cats as well) is getting the exercise they need and knowing that they are also protected from running out into the street with an underground dog fence, will give you piece of mind while you are away from your home. It will also give your dog the freedom they need to stay healthy and happy
The Pros and Cons of a Wireless Dog Fence
A Jack Russell terrier is a wonderful, friendly dog. One that many people absolutely enjoy. They are playful, loving, and extremely smart. One I have has won many agility course competitions. Another one I have know is a very enthusiastic fly-ball fanatic. Who wouldn't want one of these fantastic dogs?
A Jack Russell terrier is a neurotic, over energetic, ball of fury. They have an insatiable appetite for digging. You could swear that rabbits and opossums are the mortal enemy of your Jack Russell terrier. No fence can keep them in your back yard. They are continually running through the electric dog fence you have recently installed. Your neighbor swears it can jump into their backyard over the 6ft tall privacy fence, destroying her (award winning) tulip garden. Who would want one of these demons?
Does this sound familiar to you? If I replaced Jack Russell Terrier with Labrador, Airedale, or Cocker Spaniel, would it now sound familiar? Many pet owners have experienced that sick feeling when they realize the family's best friend is no longer in the backyard. Digging in the neighbor's yard is a mere inconvenience. What happens when you live on a busy street and your neighbor is the one carrying the limp body of your friend to your door step. No amount of explanation to your children can prepare them for that horrid experience.
This scenario does not have to play out. There are alternatives. Let us look at a few of them.
- Tying them up - unfortunately, this is very limited. Many dogs resent the restriction and often the owner finds it unpleasant because their pet can not use the whole yard. It is easy for them to become entangled in their tie-up rope. It becomes even more dangerous if they can jump a fence.
- Keeping them inside - I have seen this, especially with small dogs. If you choose to have your dog deficate and urinate where you live, I won't argue with you, please do not invite me over for dinner.
- Traditional Fencing - Great for many dogs. There are many attractive options on the market right now. Wrought iron, picket, chain-link, privacy fencing are all options. They vary, from short to 6-8ft tall. There are often restrictions placed if you live in a subdivision regulated by a home owners association.
- Buried Fencing combined with Traditional Fencing - This option involves a little digging and back braking work. A traditional fence is erected as usual, however, a mesh fence is buried and attached to the traditional fence. This option prevents dogs that are diggers to work their way under the fence.
- Invisible Electric Dog Fence - An electric dog fence is an excellent option for those who do not need or want a fence obstructing their view of their backyard. An invisible dog fence is also an option to inexpensively contain dogs in a very large area, often up to 25 acres. A wire is buried 3 inches underground and attached in a loop to the transmitter for the fencing system. The electric dog fence is completed with a receiver collar properly fitted to your dog. The collar then receives signals from the wire underground and warns and/or corrects your dog as it approaches the defined boundaries. The electric dog fence systems often allow varying degrees of warning/correction. As good as this option sounds, dogs occasionally can outrun the correction.
- Invisible Electric Dog Fence combined with Traditional Fencing - If invisibility is not needed and maximum containment is desired, this is the best option for your dog. The traditional fence is erected as usual. The electric dog fence wiring is then buried just inside the traditional fence perimeter. The combination of the visual containment system (traditional fencing) as well as the audible warning of the electric dog fence prevents even the most stubborn dog.
As you can see, there are many options available for containing your dog. Each option has its place. Review your situation and honestly assess the needs of your home and your pet. Tying up your pet is rarely the answer, but a fence often is a great option. Whether the fence is a traditional picket fence or a more modern electric dog fence, the goal is always the same, to protect your best friend from escaping your yard and becoming harmed. All dogs can be wonderful, however, it takes training, patience, and a little imagination to help them respond to your needs.
