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 Bow Island 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 Bow Island AB?
I was in the middle of the lake fishing last Sunday and I get a frantic call from a lady with an Invisible dog fence brand system. She tells me her system is beeping and she can't get it to stop. She further explains that she can't get anyone on the phone at the dealer except someone that says they can schedule a service call and they'll come and fix it. As she talks further she discloses that she has already unplugged it and it is still beeping and its driving her crazy. She has no use for the system as her dog had passed away over 2 years ago. The lady tells me she has called a couple different Invisible dog fence Dealers she found online and no one was willing to help her get the beep stopped.
As a formally educated businessman I find this attitude of the Invisible dog fence dealers to be all too common and absolutely reprehensible. They seem blind to providing service to their customers unless they can make another dollar on it. Now considering the Invisible dog fence Brand systems are the most expensive on the market you would expect for this added price that they would bend over backwards to help their clients. Unfortunately that is not very often the case and quite often it seems just the opposite. The more it cost the less "Value added" service you receive. If it didn't give the industry such a black eye I would care less.
Well back to the subject at hand. The unit was beeping after being unplugged. Well in order to beep it needs power. If its unplugged there must be an additional power source for example a battery backup. I ask her to describe what wires she saw connected to the unit that was beeping. She explained there were two twisted together, those being the loop wires, there was a black wire that was attached to the transformer she had already unplugged, there was a green ground wire, and there was also a black and red wire together that went to another larger square box on the wall beside the transmitter.
This was the battery backup that she needed to disconnect. Most invisible dog fence dealers love to sell battery backups as it makes additional income for them although it is not very practical in most applications. I instructed her that she needed to unplug the black and red wire combination by simply grasping them close up to the unit and pulling. The small plastic plug disengaged and the beeping stopped.
She thanked me profusely and offered to pay me for my assistance when I refused her gesture she offered to send me the unit as payment for my help. I told her how she could at least recover some of her money from the system by selling it on eBay as there are always buyers on there wanting them. My personal experience with eBay is that there are several invisible dog fence dealers who buy product on there to resell to their customers that are looking for used products. At least these invisible dog fence dealers are trying to provide added services to their clients.
Benefits of Using an Invisible Dog Fence
Wireless dog fences are not really fences, but a signal sent out by a transmitter and received by a dog collar that issues a static correction if the collar goes beyond the range of the signal. That is, if your dog strays more than a distance of 100 ft from the transmitter, the dog collar will lose the signal and a mild shock is given to remind him to return within the boundary.
The wireless fence takes about an hour or two to configure first by locating a place inside or nearby the house where a perimeter boundary can be established. If you plan on keeping the corrective collar on your dog while he is inside the house, make sure the house is inside the perimeter otherwise your dog will be unnecessarily corrected. Also, if your dog sleeps in a metal crate, the crate sometimes forms a Faraday Cage that may interfere with the signal from the transmitter. Keep both in mind when establishing a boundary and using the collar on your dog inside the house.
Outside your house, you need to identify where the dog collar loses the signal. The collar has an audible beeping sound which will start emitting a few seconds before the corrective phase is issued. Listen for the beep as you walk 40 to 50 steps from the transmitter. Identify this distance with markers such as bricks or rocks so that you will know if the perimeter adequately covers the area you want to retain your dog inside.
After you have identified the boundary, you will have to train your dog to stay inside it. Training takes about two weeks for your dog to understand how the unseen fence works. The first step is walk your dog on a leash across the fence allowing collaring to beep; waiting a few seconds and bring him back inside the fence followed with praise and treats. Initially the collar is set in a training mode so all your dog will hear is an audible sound.
The same training is repeated the next day but collar set to the lowest static correction value. This introduces your dog slight shock that is meant to get his attention. Make sure that the metal contacts are touching your pet's skin otherwise it correction will not work. This training continues for several days with lots of praise.
After your dog has mastered the perimeter and refrains and returns from outside the wireless fence, additional training is required to distract your dog or entice him to cross the boundary. The easiest way is to throw a ball slightly beyond the fence. This will cause your dog to exit the area and receive the corrective action. Reward your dog when he returns to the safe area. A training lead, or a long leash, works best during the distraction phase since he is somewhat free to roam while he is still under your control.
After about two weeks of training, your dog should be able to resist crossing the wireless dog fence. Monitoring is important during following two weeks to make sure he is not tempted to run off if there are any distractions.
