One of the most popular options available today is the “radio electric” dog fence.

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 Elk Point 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 Elk Point AB?

Pet Electric Fence

 

By the time you "know" that you need a dog containment fence, you're probably late, and your dog has gone loopy and walkabout. Local leash laws... fines... anxiety over a wandering and potentially "lost family member" are only some of the key reasons for moving proactively on a fencing for pets game plan.

Designing Plans For Dog Fence Installation. In any "dog run" home and family project, you have four (4) broad categories of planning to sort out.

1. Measuring For Optimum Size Dog Run. Size matters. Bigger is better. Dogs, from Chihuahuas to Labs, need physical activity and movement to keep them mentally and physically in balance and happy. Carefully measure, and then set aside the largest area that your property can yield. Dog run fencing based on meshed easy-to-install deer fencing opens up seriously large dimensions... meanwhile, smaller more restricted but potentially sturdier dog kennels offer a smaller-is-best alternative.

2. Identify Food, Water, Weather Protection Needs. Space, layouts, creating overhead sun and weather protection... a quiet resting zone... food... water bowls... outdoor pet bedding or blankies should all be carefully assessed before finalizing your outdoor dog fence.

3. Budgets And Costing. You've rejected the low cost single-point cable-and-leash dog run strung between two fixed points, and is at best a limited dog run option, but costs under $20. The next quality level up are dog run fencing designs based on impact-resistant deer fencing like plastic materials, giving tremendous flexibility in terms of up-and-down your property layout, and cost around $1.40 per linear foot, including fencing material, posts, and ground anchor hardware. Most robust and secure, yet highest cost are chain-metal dog kennel fencing systems, offering modular panels and integrated access gates.

4. Burrowing Underneath Or "Break Outs" Risks Minimized. By their nature, pet containment fences mean "keeping the furry guys inside". However... dogs are smart, and with time-on-their-paws they'll instinctively examine every inch of your perimeter dog fence or dog kennel, in a natural inquisitive "probe" to see if there's a weak spot, where they might dig under, jump over, or speed dial a locksmith to assist in an escape. Meaning? Think like a dog, walk every foot of your pet fencing, looking for loose soft ground and especially for pet fencing based on deer fence enclosures, making sure that your ground anchors along with rocks or other weighty objects properly seal the fence from a burrowing pet!

Modular Dog Kennels. Bomb-shelter rugged engineering is what families get when constructing a modular dog kennel. Dog kennel fencing materials can vary, but the accepted "standard" is some form of anodized aluminum chain-metal fencing. Strong? Virtually impregnable, from the outside or the inside. Aesthetically, a small "down side" factor with a dog kennel fence is that it "stands out" on your property, and lacks that eco-friendly subtlety of deer fencing which is virtually invisible except for the entrance gate.

Dog Run Fencing - Creature Comforts. Keeping pets safe, and out of mischief in terms of wandering or safety of passerby persons, is only a fraction of the planning necessary for a quality pet containment fence. A dog's age... breed... health... character and personality... and physical sensitivities to heat, cold and water are key "planning inputs" when determining the size, location and outfitting of dog run fencing.

* Water. Simple, functional gravity-fed large reservoir watering units are a must for a dog run. Clean water, up to several gallons or more, goes into the reservoir. After each drink, the unit naturally emits replacement water equal to what your dog has drunk. Reason? Hydraulic pressure.

* Shade And Rain Protection. Any outdoor pet fence must include a shade and rain protection zone... think dimensionally at around 6-foot square... tarps minimally or a more permanent hard cover construction gives a rest, sleep and weather protection safety zone.

 

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

Dog Containment Fence

 

Electric dog fencing/cat fencing is the perfect way to keep your dog or cat safe and secure in the yard without having to put up expensive fencing. It might be that you live in a neighborhood that doesn't allow traditional fencing to be erected. Whatever the reason, electric dog fencing is a low-cost but extremely viable solution in keeping your pet safe without the need to hamper the view in any way. What's more is that it can cover a very large area making the system very flexible.

There are essentially two types of electric dog fence, one utilizes an underground wire system, while the other is more portable, but both work on a similar principle in that both send out a signal to a receiver collar the dog or cat wears. When your pet gets too close to the boundary, the receiver collar gives the pet a safe and effective correction, thus keeping the dog or cat safe in to the yard. It is strongly recommended that the dog or cat is trained as to where the boundaries are and with both systems small flags that can be stuck into the ground are provided. These are used to mark out the path of the boundary so you know where it is and to aid training. Anyway, this article will describe both systems.

The wired system or underground fence is the less expensive of the two and is usually buried 1 to 2 inches below ground around the perimeter of the yard. The wired fence can also be installed above ground with the use of sod staples. The wire starts and finishes at a transmitter which needs to be placed in a shed or garage, or any other place that protects it from the elements. It also requires a power source. The containment area covered by the fence could be a typical suburban yard or vast acreage depending on the model purchased. Imagine the cost of erecting a traditional fence for that area! Once set up, the dog wears the receiver collar and as it draws close to the wire marking the boundary, it receives a signal from the transmitter that corrects the dog and brings him back into the yard.

The second option is the so-called wireless system. This is much easier to install in that there's no digging for wire to be laid. Plug this system in, set the boundary range and you're ready to start training. It is also much more flexible as it allows you to change the range as you need to. It is slightly more expensive than the hard- wired system, but its portability means you could take it along with your dog on a camping vacation, or wherever you may be traveling. If you have a lot of land, you can also purchase additional transmitters and increase the range.

Basically, how this system works is it will cover a radial area of say 30 feet up to ¾ of an acre depending on the particular unit you purchase. As the dog approaches the limits of the range, the signal between collar and transmitter grows weaker until such a time the collar activates and corrects the dog, again bringing it back within the boundary.

Whichever system of dog or cat fencing you decide upon, you can be sure that either system will provide a low-cost and efficient alternative to traditional fencing and that your dog will be kept contained, safe and sound.
