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 Nanton AB 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 Nanton 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 Nanton AB?
I have found there are many reasons a invisible underground dog fence collar will activate in an area that it should not. The most common is a stray signal off of a cable TV line. This happens when the underground fence boundary wire piggy backs or runs on top of the cable TV line for a long distance.
There are different ways to fix this. The first thing I would look at is how large the fence signal field is, if it is larger than six feet (in other words the dog fence receiver activates six feet from the underground wire)and your pet does not test the fence there is probably room to turn the signal field down a little and that will fix the stray signal in most cases.
In a more severe case adjusting the field wont work. I would try removing the ground from the dog fence. If this solves the problem then the problem is in the common ground between the dog fence and the cable TV. To resolve this you simply need a new ground location for the dog fence. The easy thing to do is install a small ground rod outside the garage and attach the dog fence ground to the rod. You need to have a ground for the underground invisible dog fence if not your warranty will be void.
If removing the ground from the dog fence transmitter did not solve the problem try and remove the cable TV ground normally located outside near the electric meter. If this solves the problem what needs to be done is the cable TV needs to be re grounded where it comes into the house at the ground block. The ground block is attached to the house where the outdoor underground cable TV line meets the inside feed to the house and attached is a ground wire that runs to the electric meter or shares the same ground rod as the the electric meter. You must have a cable TV ground it is what protects your home from lightning damage or fire. I recommend to have the cable company do this or a licenced electrician.
If this does not solve your stray signal problem it is possible that it could be something setting off a signal similar to your underground invisible dog fence. It could be a cordless phone or another type of wireless device, take a walk around the house with the dog fence collar and hold it up to anything you may think could cause the problem and move it to another location. The invisible brand fence company has a wireless transmitter called the invisible mask. This will solve your dog fence stray signal problem as well. Most underground pet fencing has a 7K signal or a 10K signal the mask has a switch setting for both. If you have Pet Safe, Innotek, or Radio Fence it is most likely to be 10K any other brand probably 7K. The mask is designed to work with the invisible brand but I have seen it work with most other brands. The only one I have found it not to work with is Dog Watch brand dog fencing.

Electric Dog Fences - The Pros and Cons
We used to have a traditional dog fence in our back yard. We set it up so it was deep in the ground so our dog could not go under it and it was also too tall to jump over. The mistake we made was leaving the door open one day and our little dog almost got hit by a car. Right after that incident we decided to go with an electric dog fence.
We were hesitant to buy an electric dog fence, or underground dog fences as their also known, because we thought it might be inhumane. There are a lot of electric fences on the market and they all work basically the same way. They all give your dog some kind of unpleasant signal to tell them they have gone to far. The particular dog fence we got gave off a high pitch beep in that only your dog can hear. We decided that we would rather have our dog experience a little beep or mild shock instead of being hit by a passing car.
The most common mistake dog owners make with these underground fences is that they depend too much on them before their dog is properly trained. Many people buy these dog containment systems with the belief that they will instantly stop their dog from running off their property, but it does not always work that way. These electric dog fences will simply annoy or cause mild pain to your dog and if your dog does not realize it in time it will run right off your property. You still need to spend the time to train your dog to obey the sensation she feels from the invisible fencing system. It only took me a couple of days to properly train her, and my little dog is happy as can be.
When we were training her, we kept the old traditional fence up, just in case she decided to run away. We put the electric dog fence about three feet inside the old traditional fence and after we were sure she was trained, we took it down. If you do not have a traditional fence, you could always use a long leash. This way your dog will be able to travel far enough to feel the sensation, but not so far that she will run away. You should continue your training with your underground fencing system, until you feel comfortable that your dog is completely trained.
Once your electric dog fence is up and your dog is trained, you will be able to rest easy knowing that your lovable dog is safe as secure.
