Even though an invisible, underground, wireless or other electric dog fence systems cannot be seen or touched, they do a fairly good job in keeping your dog safe within the exterior areas of your demarcated property. These unique dog containment systems are designed to prevent your dog from straying, being a nuisance to your neighbors and staying safe from accidents or attacks by other animals. It is not only an innovative way to keep your dog safe, but will also save you a lot of money compared to installing a traditional fence in Nanton AB. Moreover, they will also give your home and garden a cleaner, more aesthetic look.

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.

Electric Fencing For Dogs

 

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.

 

Is an Electric Dog Fence Right for You and Your Dog? Some Advantages and Disadvantage to Consider

Pet Safe Electric Fence

 

My "How to Train Your Dog on an Electronic Dog Fence" OVERVIEW article. I would like to make sure that people are using their fence to its fullest potential, which is why I would like to shed some light on how to train your pet effectively. Generally, when people are in the market for an electronic dog fence, they aren't quite sure what needs to be done to train their canine to use their fence and often worry about their new fence working the way it should. On the flip-side, there are also many people who have an in-ground fence but claim that it "didn't work". If you were to ask these people how they trained their pet, you would find that most of the owners did not train their it properly. So, for all of you future electronic dog fence owners or new owners looking for guidance, read on to learn how you can enjoy a happy pet by following simple but important training steps.

Training your canine to use an in-ground fence system can be broken down into four easy steps: Introduction to the fence, introduction to the correction, introduction to distractions, and supervision. First and foremost you will want to introduce your dog to the fence. This usually takes about one week and it is imperative that your pet is taught that when their collar is beeping, they need to retreat back into your yard. The way you do this is by simply letting them walk the perimeter of your fence and pull them back into the safety one when the warning beep is heard.

Once your dog has been introduced to their in-ground fence, you need to introduce your dog to the correction. This step should also take about a week and will be demanding on the pet owner. Many people find it difficult at first to let their dog be corrected by the fence but this is for them to learn their new found boundaries. Simply walk your dog around the perimeter again except instead of bringing them into the safety zone after the warning beep, you will now wait until your pet is corrected and then bring it back into its safety zone.

The third step of the training process is introducing your dog to distractions. This should be a relatively simple step and should only take about one day. You want to put distractions on the other side your fence that your dog may want. Try playing with a tennis ball and after a few minutes, toss it outside of the boundary of your yard. If your pet tries to retrieve the ball, you may have to return to step two. For more examples of how to use distractions to make sure your dog is trained properly, keep an eye out for the fourth installment of the "training your dog" series.

The last step of the training process is the supervision period that will last about a week. Your dog is finally trained for its new fence but I would recommend supervising them before you completely trust your dog in your yard alone. It is very important that they do not cross the boundary line for any reason during its supervisory period. Start by leaving your dog off the leash while you are watching them in the yard; then slowly start to watch them from a window while it is outside on its own for a few minutes and gradually increase the time your dog is alone outside.

Once your dog has completed the last step of the training process, you can rest easily knowing that they can be trusted outside by themselves. An important thing to remember is that if at any point your dog fails a step, go back to the previous and re-train your dog. If your pet is properly trained on its electronic dog fence, it can enjoy the benefits of being free in its own yard. Say "goodbye" to leashes, dog runs and cages with an underground fence and enjoy all of the perks of not having to be outside the whole time your dog is. I hope this brief overview helps decide to invest in an electronic dog fence or train your pet on an already installed fence.

Again, this is only a brief overview of the training process so stay tuned for more detailed instructions for every step and you will be on your way to a perfectly trained dog.
