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 East Kootenay BC 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 East Kootenay BC?

Invisible Dog Fence System

 

The Wireless Electronic Dog Fences are actually invisible fencing that consists of burying wire with transmitters. The wire is approximately 500 to 1000 feet in length and is initialed around a perimeter to keep a dog inside the area.

Dogs will wear a collar that has a receiver attached to it that will beep and then produce a light shock if the dog gets near the wire. Unlike a traditional fence these are not visible to the eye and are basically less expensive than purchasing and installing a traditional wooden or metal fence. Whereas these types of fences cost per foot, the electronic will normally be less than three hundred dollars for all materials required.

A wireless dog fence can be used in any area where there is a need to keep a dog inside a designated perimeter as well as keeping them out of a certain area. They are often used for keeping the animal out of a swimming pool or garden area and indoors for preventing entrance into areas such as a kitchen or bedroom.

These cannot simply be installed and forgotten. Dogs have to be trained of the association to the beep and shock. The amount of time required will depend on the dog. The wireless fence will keep the dog contained inside the perimeter but, it will not prevent other animals or people from entering.

The unit consists of a transmitter that will plug into the house and transmits radio signal. The collar placed on the dog is lightweight and will pick up the signal. The animal is not prohibited from running freely; it will only be shocked if the initial beep is ignored when they come in contact with the fence. The shock is actual a static sound that will only startle them and not hurt it.

When training them to stay inside the fencing area, it often helps to install small flags around the entire perimeter where the fence has been installed. This will help to train the dog to stay inside the area by associating the flags with the shock.

It is important to know that if a dog is stubborn or suddenly startled they may continue to run outside the barrier. If this happens they be discouraged from entering back into the area which will be difficult in not only getting them back in the yard but will make the training more difficult. The collar is battery operated so keeping fresh batteries installed is important.

Wireless electronic dog fences have many people concerned over the aggression thought to be involved with this type of training. The shock the dog receives feels to them as it would to a human that has walked on carpet and shocked someone. It will not hurt them but, it does require continuous training which may take several weeks in order for the unit to work effectively. Once the dog has received a shock they may test the perimeter frequently to see if it reoccurs so it is crucial that each time the pet is in the area being contained that the owner also have the pet in view for correct training to work.

 

Wireless Dog Fence - Some Basic Information

Best In Ground Dog Fence

 

The first thing you want to do when introducing your dog to its new in-ground fence system is to make sure that the collar will not use correction on your dog. To do this, many collars and/or transmitters have an option to turn the correction levels off. If your system does not have these options, you should be able to place masking tape around the prongs to put a barrier between the collar and your dog.

Once you place the collar on your dog, you will want to start (and end) each training session with some play time. You want to make sure your dog views your yard as a play area and does not associate it with a negative place to be. Place a long leash on your dog and begin to walk your dog throughout your yard stopping about a yard away from your boundary line and flags. 

Now let your dog wander until it hears the beep of the collar, then quickly pull back on the leash and firmly say "no" three to four times. While telling your dog "no", make sure you are very firm and getting your point across. Most dogs hear the word "no" several times a day so it is very important that you dog is understanding that you mean business. If you have a partner to help you with training, have them shake a boundary flag while saying "no" to further emphasize the urgency of the beep.  Also, when telling your dog "no" be sure to say it quickly and confidently; saying it quickly will get your point across that it needs to move back into the yard and away from the beep quickly.

Once your dog has returned into the safety of the yard praise the dog for a job well done. Remember to play with your dog at the end of the training session for a few minutes to keep them happy with their yard and to think of it as a safe haven to play in. Repeat these steps 3 to 4 times a day for a week. Training times may vary  from one dog to another.

I hope this helps many of you current electronic dog fence owners and future fence owners train your dog properly for it's new boundaries. A properly trained pet will lead to a safe and worry free environment for you and your beloved canine.
