Electronic dog fences are also known as hidden, invisible, wireless or underground dog fences. This type of dog fence uses either single or multiple transmitters that produce radio signals that are picked up by the collar worn by your dog.
As your dog approaches the boundaries that have been established, he will hear a specific beeping sound. If he continues to get closer, he will feel a mild static shock. Many dog owners use this type of dog fence to quickly train their dogs to stay within a “safe” zone.
Most electronic or wireless dog fences are hidden under the ground so not to obstruct your views and are ideal for acreages, and effectively keep your dog confined to your yard. One great advantage of an electric dog fence is that your dog won’t be able to chew through, jump over or dig up the fence like he would a traditional wood fence.

An electric fence wire is buried under the ground, surrounding the perimeter of the area in which you’d like your dog confined. It is similar to the invisible dog fence in that your dog is outfitted with a special collar that contains a receiver. The difference is that when your dog gets too close to the perimeter of the area that is fenced off, he will hear a loud beep or tone. As he gets closer and closer, the sound will change in frequency. Eventually, he will learn to return to the safety of his yard. If for some reason your dog does go across the electric wire, he will receive a “correction”.
To install an invisible dog fence, an electric wire is run under the ground around the perimeter of the yard, or other space you’d like for your dog to stay. A receiver is placed on the collar of your dog. The underground wire consistently broadcasts a weak signal that will beep as your dog approaches the boundary of the fence. In the case that your dog gets too close to the perimeter, he will receive a mild shock. Most dogs learn very quickly to stay within the perimeter and eventually stop going near the perimeter altogether.

How to Keep a Dog From Breaking Out of Or Escaping an Invisible Underground Dog Fence?
Do you want to keep your dog in your yard without a fence? Does your dog have a problem with digging under your current fence? Do you take your dog with you on hunting or camping trips? Are you interested in an underground dog fence but don't want the hassle of burying the wire? Do you have certain areas in your home which you would like to be off limits to your dog? If your answer to any of these questions is "yes," you may want to consider the advantages of a wireless dog fence.
Wireless dog fence is a new and popular product in today's electronic world. Purchasing a wireless dog fence is a good option for budget conscious dog owners who need an effective solution to a nearly universal dog owner problem. It will give your dog plenty of freedom to run and play, while at the same time keeping him safe, secure, and well behaved. A wireless dog fence is safe, affordable, and easy to install. It is much cheaper than building a fence, and does not obstruct your view or give your yard an unsightly appearance like a traditional fence can. Wireless dog fences are also available for use inside the home as well as outside, giving you the ability to allow your dog some freedom inside your home while still controlling his boundaries. Unlike other fences, wireless dog fences are portable. This makes them wonderful for use while traveling, and are especially useful and popular for hunting and camping trips. Lastly, if you already have a fence and your dog is an escape artist, a wireless dog fence can help solve this frustrating problem. With training, your dog will learn that the fence boundary itself is to be respected because the wireless dog fence can be set up within it.
When choosing a wireless dog fence for your dog, keep in mind a few important details. We always recommend that you purchase your system from a reputable manufacturer with a good warranty, for peace of mind right from the start. Examples include Petsafe, Innotek, and Perimeter. Make sure that the system you choose is suitable for the weight of your particular dog. Also, you may want to consider purchasing an additional transmitter which can be used to enlarge the area. A wireless dog fence may not be the right choice for you if your yard is sloped. And you should definitely choose a model that has adjustable correction levels, so that you can personalize the training program for your particular dog.
Once you have purchased and have your wireless dog fence in hand, it should only take a few minutes to install using the instruction manual which will be included. You will place the transmitter either within your home, or possibly in your garage. The transmitter does need to be kept out of the rain. You can then place the wireless dog fence collar on your dog and begin training him; do not neglect this essential part of the process.
Training your dog to respect the boundaries of your new wireless dog fence usually takes a few weeks, but the time period greatly depends on each individual dog. Persistence and consistency in training will pay off. You should always supervise your dog for the initial period after the installation of your wireless dog fence. You can also place flags to mark the boundaries and use them to show your dog where he is allowed to be. Keep him on a leash at first, and set the correction level on his collar to the minimal level. Then follow him on the leash, allowing him to explore until he reaches the boundary and receives a mild shock. This shock is very humane and is not designed to harm your dog, but just to get his attention. It is similar to the shock you receive from the carpet when you rub your feet on it. Once your dog receives the correction, pull him back from the boundary and praise him. You can also give treats at first to reinforce your training. Your dog may learn to respect the boundary within one or two times, or it may take a bit longer for him to understand. He will eventually learn, however, and then you will be able to remove the leash. Continue supervising him without the leash for awhile, until you feel very confident in observing him respecting the boundaries of the fence at all times. The method for training a dog to an indoor wireless dog fence is very similar.
A wireless dog fence is an exciting new product in today's modern society, and is worth considering by dog owners as an affordable and effective option. While there is possibly no perfect solution to keeping our dogs safe and contained, today's inventions such as the wireless dog fence keep coming closer with each generation.
