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 Airdrie 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 Airdrie 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 Electric Dog Fence: Underground Or Wireless
By the time you "know" that you need a dog containment fence, you're probably late, and your dog has gone loopy and walkabout. Local leash laws... fines... anxiety over a wandering and potentially "lost family member" are only some of the key reasons for moving proactively on a fencing for pets game plan.
Designing Plans For Dog Fence Installation. In any "dog run" home and family project, you have four (4) broad categories of planning to sort out.
1. Measuring For Optimum Size Dog Run. Size matters. Bigger is better. Dogs, from Chihuahuas to Labs, need physical activity and movement to keep them mentally and physically in balance and happy. Carefully measure, and then set aside the largest area that your property can yield. Dog run fencing based on meshed easy-to-install deer fencing opens up seriously large dimensions... meanwhile, smaller more restricted but potentially sturdier dog kennels offer a smaller-is-best alternative.
2. Identify Food, Water, Weather Protection Needs. Space, layouts, creating overhead sun and weather protection... a quiet resting zone... food... water bowls... outdoor pet bedding or blankies should all be carefully assessed before finalizing your outdoor dog fence.
3. Budgets And Costing. You've rejected the low cost single-point cable-and-leash dog run strung between two fixed points, and is at best a limited dog run option, but costs under $20. The next quality level up are dog run fencing designs based on impact-resistant deer fencing like plastic materials, giving tremendous flexibility in terms of up-and-down your property layout, and cost around $1.40 per linear foot, including fencing material, posts, and ground anchor hardware. Most robust and secure, yet highest cost are chain-metal dog kennel fencing systems, offering modular panels and integrated access gates.
4. Burrowing Underneath Or "Break Outs" Risks Minimized. By their nature, pet containment fences mean "keeping the furry guys inside". However... dogs are smart, and with time-on-their-paws they'll instinctively examine every inch of your perimeter dog fence or dog kennel, in a natural inquisitive "probe" to see if there's a weak spot, where they might dig under, jump over, or speed dial a locksmith to assist in an escape. Meaning? Think like a dog, walk every foot of your pet fencing, looking for loose soft ground and especially for pet fencing based on deer fence enclosures, making sure that your ground anchors along with rocks or other weighty objects properly seal the fence from a burrowing pet!
Modular Dog Kennels. Bomb-shelter rugged engineering is what families get when constructing a modular dog kennel. Dog kennel fencing materials can vary, but the accepted "standard" is some form of anodized aluminum chain-metal fencing. Strong? Virtually impregnable, from the outside or the inside. Aesthetically, a small "down side" factor with a dog kennel fence is that it "stands out" on your property, and lacks that eco-friendly subtlety of deer fencing which is virtually invisible except for the entrance gate.
Dog Run Fencing - Creature Comforts. Keeping pets safe, and out of mischief in terms of wandering or safety of passerby persons, is only a fraction of the planning necessary for a quality pet containment fence. A dog's age... breed... health... character and personality... and physical sensitivities to heat, cold and water are key "planning inputs" when determining the size, location and outfitting of dog run fencing.
* Water. Simple, functional gravity-fed large reservoir watering units are a must for a dog run. Clean water, up to several gallons or more, goes into the reservoir. After each drink, the unit naturally emits replacement water equal to what your dog has drunk. Reason? Hydraulic pressure.
* Shade And Rain Protection. Any outdoor pet fence must include a shade and rain protection zone... think dimensionally at around 6-foot square... tarps minimally or a more permanent hard cover construction gives a rest, sleep and weather protection safety zone.
