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 Kelowna 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.

An invisible dog fence must not be used as replacement for actual dog training. In order to make your invisible dog fence effective in teaching your dog time and patience is necessary. Aside from that, you need to follow strict rules and guidelines to make the invisible dog fence system work effectively.

Using the invisible dog fence system for training your dog can either be done on your own or with a help of a professional dog trainer. However, even with professional help, you will still carry much of the burden of executing training guidelines for your dog whenever the trainer is not around.

Training the dog to recognize an invisible dog fence is both time-consuming and stretches your patience. However, this task is much easier when you are well-bonded together and the dog listens to your instructions.

This training system could span from 2-6 weeks, depending on how fast your dog can learn.

You can initially setup the training by placing small red flags along where you have buried the cable. This will serve as physical reminder for your dog on where its boundaries are. Make sure to tape the prongs on the collar to prevent sending out shocks to your dog.

Then, put on your dog's leash whenever they go out within the fence boundaries. A warning beep will start off whenever it goes beyond the area, so this will ensure the dog stays within the boundaries. When this happens, pull off the dog right away and praise him if he obeys.

Do this exercise throughout the day so the dog can get accustomed to this setup and will immediately back off when the warning beep is activated.

Once you have allowed the dog to be acquainted with this system, you can now remove the tape from the prongs on the collar to allow the shock. Although the shock is not painful to the dog it is enough to get their attention and alert them to turn back.

It is comparable to experiencing a static shock and then you come in contact with any form of metal. You need to make necessary adjustments for the amount of shock your dog will receive, according to its size and level of response.

However, every dog owner must be aware that not all shock collars can be adjusted so make sure to purchase those with adjustable settings. And whenever your dog goes out, check the collar to correct the shock level, just in case it reaches the border.

Make sure not to remove the dog's leash simultaneous with the removal of the collar prongs' cover. Keep the leash on your dog whenever he explores the area within the invisible dog fence.

 

Facts to Know About Underground Dog Fences

Wireless Electric Fence

 

If your city does not allow you to build a solid dog fence, or you simply do not want to set up something that will obstruct the view of your house, a wireless dog fence may be the perfect solution for you. Also known as an invisible dog fence, it can help you train your pet to stay within the boundaries you set for him by making him uncomfortable when he tries to go beyond the designated area.

A wireless dog fence works in a technical way called static simulation training. You determine the boundaries by installing the wire underground. After the wire is installed, you will make your pet wear a special collar which will deliver a tone and a mild static shock to him whenever he tries to go beyond the boundaries. The mild shock may be compared with the kind of shock you experience when you rub your socks against the carpet and then hold something metallic. The shock is considered humane and generally not harmful. However, different dogs react to the static electricity differently.

Firstly, your dog may associate the shock to a person or another pet outside the boundaries. He may think that it is the person or animal his fault and he may react towards them aggressively. Another possible scenario is your dog his tolerance to pain may be too low that he may develop a kind of phobia. Fearing to experience another shock, he may not leave the house or the porch at all. And even when you have already removed the collar from him, he may continuously refuse to go beyond the boundaries. This is a big problem especially when you wish to play with your dog in the park or want to tag him along on a short trip.

On the other hand, some dogs may have high pain tolerance that they can easily ignore the shocks they get from the collar. They can just go running beyond the boundaries without being affected by the static shocks and you would be left with two problems: finding a lost dog and wasting a substantial amount of money for a useless fence.

Electric Perimeter Dog Fence

 

Fixing a break in your Invisible Dog Fence or Underground Dog Fence is cheap and easy. You will periodically get breaks in the boundary line of your dog fence. You will know that the line is broken because the dog fence transmitter unit attached to your house will signal an error by either a flashing red light or a beeping noise. You will also notice that your dog's receiver collars no longer work and will not beep when you take them over the boundary line.

The boundary wire for your underground dog fence needs to make a complete loop, beginning and ending at the transmitter unit. When you get a break in the loop the signals cannot get through and the unit stops working. Our job is to find the break in the boundary wire and fix it. Before you start you need to remove the receiver collars from your dogs.

Here are the tools you will need for this DIY voyage:

 

  1. One 100 µH RF Choke (available from Radioshack (catalog number 273-102)) - $1.39
  2. One waterproof wire nut (available from most home improvement or hardware stores) - $0.39
  3. One AM radio - any portable AM radio will do, tuned to 600.
  4. One pair of scissors
  5. One Shovel or anything else you can dig with

 

Time: 30 minutes

There are two ways to find the break, we start with the easiest way:

Finding a Break by Visual Inspection

Most breaks are caused by someone running an edger, aerator or otherwise digging through the boundary wire. These breaks can usually be found by walking along where the boundary wire runs and looking for spots where there has been recent digging. Unearth the wire in these spots and check for damage. The most likely spots are where the boundary wire crosses your driveway or pathways. Also check that the boundary wire is properly connected to the transmitter box.

If you found the break, proceed to the section on fixing the break. If not, proceed to the following section where we will show you how to use an RF Choke to make the boundary wire 'sing' and reveal the location of the break to you.

RF Choke Method

The RF Choke will make your boundary wire 'sing.' We will be able to listen to this sound with the AM radio you have tuned to 600 and will be able to find the break by looking for the part of the wire that is not singing.

First switch off the transmitter box. Now, disconnect the two boundary wire leads that connect to the box. In their place, connect the two legs of the RF choke. Now turn the transmitter box back on. The transmitter box should no longer be signalling that there is an error.

Now turn the transmitter box back off. Take the two boundary wires and wrap an insulated section of each wire around different legs of the RF choke. Now turn the transmitter box back on. The transmitter should still signal that there is no error. Rotate the knob labeled "field width" on the transmitter box clockwise till it is at full power.

Now turn on the radio tuned to AM 600, and walk along the boundary wire. When you hold the radio near the boundary wire it should make a deep pulsing/throbbing noise, like Ugh-Ugh-Ugh-Ugh-Ugh ... As you move the radio closer and further away from the boundary wire you will notice that there are some distances where the sound is louder and some distances where it gets quieter. As you walk around the boundary you will find a spot where there is no sound coming from the AM radio irrespective of whether you move the radio closer or further from the boundary wire. This is where you should dig up the wire and look for the break. It will be within three yards of the quiet spot

Now that you have done the hard part let's fix the break

Fixing the Break

Use the scissors to strip the wire on each side of the break in the boundary wire. Now insert the two stripped sections into the wire nut and gently twist until you start to get a bit of resistance from the wire nut. Now we will test to see if you have fixed the problem.

Return to the transmitter unit and turn off the power. Disconnect the RF choke legs and reconnect the boundary wire. Power back on the transmitter and there should be no error signal. If there is an error signal, look for another break, it is possible that there was more than one. If there was no error signal, bury the boundary wire you dug up. Reset the "field width" knob on the transmitter box to it's original setting and you are done. Congratulations you just saved yourself a house call from the local Underground Dog Fence company and a large bill!

 

How to Keep a Dog From Breaking Out of Or Escaping an Invisible Underground Dog Fence?

Perimeter Dog Collar

 

The electric wireless dog fence is a wonderful invention, particularly if you're renting a house and can't have a permanent structure; just pack it up and take it with you.

In the old days, if you wanted to keep your dog from roaming, you'd have to erect a costly and unsightly wire or wood fence. However, thanks to improvements in technology, it's been possible for a while to have an invisible electric dog fence.

To install the traditional invisible electric fence, you will need to decide on the area where you want to contain your dog, probably excluding flower beds and your vegetable garden. Then you need to bury the wire around two inches deep all around the area. The wire gives off a signal to the special collar worn by your dog and will emit an audible alarm when he approaches the electric fence and if he doesn't back off into his allowed area, he will receive a small electrical stimulation.

All well and good, your garden doesn't look like Fort Knox but what if you want to change the area where the dog is allowed to go or what if you want to move house? First remember where you buried your wire then dig it up, then re-bury it wherever you want it now. What a pain!

Enter the electric wireless dog fence. No wires to bury with this neat gadget. You have a transmitter which emits a radio signal which is picked up by your dog's receiver collar. Other than that, the electric wireless dog fence works in the same way as the underground variety but setting up the containment area takes seconds using the range dial on the transmitter. You can choose a very small radius all the way up to ninety feet and alter it whenever you need to.

In addition, you can locate your transmitter out of sight in your garage or anywhere else that there is a power source because the radio signal can transmit through walls.

You train your dog not to go outside his boundary by placing the flags provided around the area so that there is initially a visible stimulus for your dog. When he has learnt where the boundary is, the flags can be removed. There are detailed instructions as to how to train your dog included with the electric wireless dog fence.

So, your dog is safely contained, your precious flowers and vegetables are safe from scrabbling paws and if you decide to move house, you just pick up your transmitter and go; no more locating and digging up wires with the electric wireless dog fence.
