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 St. Paul 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.

The time has come to provide some type of alternative outdoor dog containment for Tiffany, our dog, who has the ability to leap six foot wooden fences. She has learned to take a running start, hit the fence as high as possible, use her front paws to pull her body over and push with her back legs to get that extra leverage that pushes her into freedom. I have never been able to catch this on video but it certainly would go viral.

The problem is that we live in a community and county which have strict covenants and laws concerning pets, specifically dogs, and her desire to run free, will land us in front of the judge if we don't find a way to clip her wings. An electric dog fence seems like the best solution for everyone, since both jumping over and digging under are not options, but there are both advantages and disadvantages to this type of system for the pet and the pet owner.

Several of the advantages to using an electric dog fence are: cost of the fence, effectiveness of the product, and ease of use. The cost for any fence depends on the height of the fence, the size of the area being enclosed and the terrain that you are fencing in. A hard fence will cost an average of $15 to $30 per square foot and if you have hilly terrain or curves the cost will go up significantly. The cost for an electric dog fence will run approximately $3 per square foot and there are no additional costs incurred for terrain changes or curvy boundaries. You will have additional one-time costs for all collars and the transmitter. The effectiveness of the electric dog fence is high and, of the two, will do a better job, if the dog is trained correctly. Unlike a physical fence there can be no jumping over the fence nor digging under the fence and there are no doors or gates that can be left open accidentally. As far as ease of use, once the fence is installed the only maintenance involved is keeping the batteries charged on both the dog's collar and the transmitter.

There are certainly disadvantages to an electric dog fence. Some people view them as inhumane and are not willing to subject their pets to the mild shock that is administered as their pet nears the boundary wire. This is a personal choice on the part of the pet owner as the shock that is used, to course correct a pet, is mild. It is only transmitted to the collar after a series of warning beeps have alerted the dog that they are nearing the "no zone". Most dogs will learn their boundaries very quickly and the number of times a course correcting shock should be necessary will be minimal. Any owner who decides to employ an electric dog fence will also have to make the necessary time commitment to effectively train their pet. It generally requires several weeks of consistent daily training but the end results will be worth it.

Some other factors to consider before selecting an electric dog fence are that the system should not be used with puppies or pregnant dogs. Additionally, using this form of containment with overly aggressive dogs is not recommended as they are usually willing to bear the pain of crossing the boundary wire to pursue their quarry. Also the use of an electric fence does not keep intruders, human or animal, out of your yard nor will you have the privacy that is provided by a wooden or wire fence.

All in all, the choice to use an electric dog fence comes with many things to consider before making the final purchase. They do however provide the owner with peace of mind knowing that their pet has the freedom to enjoy the yard without putting themselves, or the pet owner, in harm's way. They are easy to install and should you move the fence can go with you to your next location ensuring safely for your dog where ever you are.

 

Update on Electric Dog Fences

Pet Electric Fence

 

Like many pet lovers out there, you want to keep your dog safe. After all it's like keeping your best friend safe! So when it comes to safety, it is worth investing in something that will keep your dog from running away. It's definitely worth considering an underground electric dog fence.

You've likely heard of this concept before. It's not very complicated. A transmitter goes in the house, and a wire is buried around your yard. The wire then emits a radio frequency. It is that radio frequency that triggers a correction when your furry friend gets too close to the dangers of leaving your yard. A fence such as this is ideal if you require a certain amount of flexibility when it in your boundary setting. Unlike a wireless dog fence which can only create a circular radius for your pet, an underground electric dog fence can be placed virtually anywhere you'd like your dog to go. Dog fences can even be run through streams and into lakes!

Deciding where you'd like the dogs boundaries to be is the first job. Once you've had that your professional installer will figure out the best location for the wire. The wire for your underground dog fence will always be placed a few feet away from where you would like the boundaries, to allow for the radio frequency. Getting these boundaries right are important so that since you would have to dig the wire up to change it later!

Once you've determined the boundaries, and allowed space for the radio frequency, it's time to look at obstacles. It's important to plan well for difficult to cross areas. Although an asphalt driveway can be crossed at any location, frequently concrete driveways are crossed at existing expansion joints. Those expansion joints are a great place to hide the wire without having to worry about cutting another line in the concrete. The wire does need to make a complete loop so that's way it's important to establish a clear path around your entire property.

The purpose for burying the wire is two fold. One, you don't want the wire to move around on your dog. And two, you want to protect the wire from being cut or damaged during yard work and trimming. This means that if you have a heavily wooded area, your underground electric dog fence can actually be "buried" above ground! The most common way to do this is to use common landscape fabric staples. Most home improvement stores carry them.

Back at the house, both ends of the wire end up at your transmitter. Your transmitter should be located someplace where it can stay dry and close to an outlet so that you can power it. The transmitter, can be up high or down low on the wall, but it should be someplace that you can see it easily. Most transmitters have lights on them to let you know that they're still operational and it's important to be able to see these lights.

Oh, one more thing about laying out the boundaries, besides keeping your dog in the yard, you can keep him or her out of the flower beds! It's a great feature of the wired underground dog fences that you can splice into the loop creating multiple smaller loops to protect not just your dog, but also your flowers from your dog. A nice benefit of the wired systems for sure.

As for the operation of the dog fence, the radio signal that is created by the wire is programmed to a receiver on your dog's collar. This means that other electronics won't set off your dogs collar on the better brands of these products. When your dog approaches the underground fence he or she can receive a warning, a correction or both a warning and a correction. Again this varies a bit depending on the brand.

When getting too close to its 'out of bounds' area, your dog will hear a high pitched tone or beep as a reminder or warning. If you have that cheeky, adventurous type of dog however, they may continue anyway. When your dog tries to cross that wire boundary, a small electric shock will be sent to the receiver collar. This combined with proper training is what makes the fence so effective. Once your dog associates going too far with receiving that electric shock, it will ultimately keep them within the confines and safety of your yard.

The electric shock varies based on dog temperament. But in general it is no more than a small static shock. Although it is completely harmless to your dog, it's best to have an experienced dog fence professional help you set the correction level for your dog. The correction only needs to be enough to be more than your dogs distraction!

Through the association of the electrical correction, your dog will learn to not run away. Using the underground electric dog fence combined with a few weeks of initial training will soon ensure that your dog stays safe in your yard. And won't it be nice to have one less thing to worry about!
