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 Armstrong BC. 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 Armstrong BC 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 Armstrong 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 Armstrong BC?

Invisible Dog Fence System

 

Like many pet lovers out there, you want to keep your dog safe. After all it's like keeping your best friend safe! So when it comes to safety, it is worth investing in something that will keep your dog from running away. It's definitely worth considering an underground electric dog fence.

You've likely heard of this concept before. It's not very complicated. A transmitter goes in the house, and a wire is buried around your yard. The wire then emits a radio frequency. It is that radio frequency that triggers a correction when your furry friend gets too close to the dangers of leaving your yard. A fence such as this is ideal if you require a certain amount of flexibility when it in your boundary setting. Unlike a wireless dog fence which can only create a circular radius for your pet, an underground electric dog fence can be placed virtually anywhere you'd like your dog to go. Dog fences can even be run through streams and into lakes!

Deciding where you'd like the dogs boundaries to be is the first job. Once you've had that your professional installer will figure out the best location for the wire. The wire for your underground dog fence will always be placed a few feet away from where you would like the boundaries, to allow for the radio frequency. Getting these boundaries right are important so that since you would have to dig the wire up to change it later!

Once you've determined the boundaries, and allowed space for the radio frequency, it's time to look at obstacles. It's important to plan well for difficult to cross areas. Although an asphalt driveway can be crossed at any location, frequently concrete driveways are crossed at existing expansion joints. Those expansion joints are a great place to hide the wire without having to worry about cutting another line in the concrete. The wire does need to make a complete loop so that's way it's important to establish a clear path around your entire property.

The purpose for burying the wire is two fold. One, you don't want the wire to move around on your dog. And two, you want to protect the wire from being cut or damaged during yard work and trimming. This means that if you have a heavily wooded area, your underground electric dog fence can actually be "buried" above ground! The most common way to do this is to use common landscape fabric staples. Most home improvement stores carry them.

Back at the house, both ends of the wire end up at your transmitter. Your transmitter should be located someplace where it can stay dry and close to an outlet so that you can power it. The transmitter, can be up high or down low on the wall, but it should be someplace that you can see it easily. Most transmitters have lights on them to let you know that they're still operational and it's important to be able to see these lights.

Oh, one more thing about laying out the boundaries, besides keeping your dog in the yard, you can keep him or her out of the flower beds! It's a great feature of the wired underground dog fences that you can splice into the loop creating multiple smaller loops to protect not just your dog, but also your flowers from your dog. A nice benefit of the wired systems for sure.

As for the operation of the dog fence, the radio signal that is created by the wire is programmed to a receiver on your dog's collar. This means that other electronics won't set off your dogs collar on the better brands of these products. When your dog approaches the underground fence he or she can receive a warning, a correction or both a warning and a correction. Again this varies a bit depending on the brand.

When getting too close to its 'out of bounds' area, your dog will hear a high pitched tone or beep as a reminder or warning. If you have that cheeky, adventurous type of dog however, they may continue anyway. When your dog tries to cross that wire boundary, a small electric shock will be sent to the receiver collar. This combined with proper training is what makes the fence so effective. Once your dog associates going too far with receiving that electric shock, it will ultimately keep them within the confines and safety of your yard.

The electric shock varies based on dog temperament. But in general it is no more than a small static shock. Although it is completely harmless to your dog, it's best to have an experienced dog fence professional help you set the correction level for your dog. The correction only needs to be enough to be more than your dogs distraction!

Through the association of the electrical correction, your dog will learn to not run away. Using the underground electric dog fence combined with a few weeks of initial training will soon ensure that your dog stays safe in your yard. And won't it be nice to have one less thing to worry about!

 

Take A Look At Underground Dog Fences

Hidden Fence For Dogs

 

My dog used to be a darter. One of those canines that would see an opening and take off. He's been hit by a car twice now, neither really that bad, and has been lost more times than I can count. Even at the old home, where a fence has existed for years, the 100 pound lab would simply hop the thing and joy ride if no one was around. It had gotten to the point that I couldn't even let him outside unless he was on a leash or tied to something.

Just a couple months ago, I moved in to a new house with a huge back yard. The yard had a great garden on the interior, too. And to my pleasant surprise, the entire perimeter was wired for one of those underground electric dog fences. The former owner told me that the fence had been installed by a local company, and worked great for his fifteen year old standard poodle. Right before I moved in, he taught me how to use the electric fence, and I looked forward to allowing my dog to run free in the huge yard with no chance of escape.

The fence initially worked wonderfully. The minute my dog got that first hard shock, he wouldn't go near the perimeter of the yard. For a good week, he played around the rest of the property while I tended to my new garden. In this week, my dog never more than edged toward the boundary, and this allowed me to feel safe and secure without having to watch his every move.

Unfortunately, that first week was the exception. After that, I noticed problem after problem with my electric fence. First, the act of keeping my dog enclosed in this back yard seemed to make him more mischievous inside the boundaries, and I came down one morning to find my newly-improved garden destroyed. This caused me to give up on my gardening for the time.

Second, the dog suddenly gained the skill to break free from the boundaries. Even with me watching, he would get a good running start, take off toward the perimeter, absorb the shock and just bust right through the thing. This caused me to turn the power up to high, which increased the shock level to a seemingly unbearable strength, and I could barely stand to watch my dog attempt to break it.

However, shortly thereafter my intelligent canine found a way to break out again anyway. He would approach the perimeter, just close enough to hear the warning tone sounding. Then he would simply sit there and let the thing beep until the battery died, an act that allowed him to run through the boundaries. Isn't the intelligence of dogs amazing? As much as I wanted to punish him for that, I was actually pretty proud that he was smart enough to figure that one out. Soon, I had no way of stopping the dog from conquering the electric fence.

I called the local installation company to see if they could help. Apparently, most companies are now referring to the product as a "containment system." I guess "electric fence" is a little less politically correct. They recommended an entire new setup, including new and upgraded system, thicker wire, and a new wire setup around the garden area, what they referred to as "expert installation." All in all, the cost for products and installation was well over two thousand dollars, which was way beyond my budget.

On the verge of giving up, I ran a couple Internet searches and found some companies selling these containment systems online at a fraction of the cost I was quoted. I called a couple customer service departments and eventually gathered the information I needed. As it turns out, I didn't even need to reinstall the system. The wire that was currently in the ground would work with any new fence I purchased.

And the new systems had everything I needed. The model I chose has a great feature called "Run Through Prevention," which basically prevents hard headed dogs like mine from running through the fence by creating a zone of increasing stimulation as the dog gets closer and closer to the boundary. I've also found this feature to be more humane, as it doesn't just hit my dog with one hard shock, and doesn't just punish him for accidentally wandering into the zone. Instead, the level of shock he receives is only increased if he continues toward the boundary.

In addition, the new containment systems have this feature called anti-drain prevention which was created for dogs like mine that would sit in the warning zone until the warning tone caused the battery to die. When my dog attempted to linger in the warning area, he received a warning shock after a couple seconds, which continued until he moved out of the area.

And as for the garden, that part was hardly "expert installation." A customer service representative talked me through a simple installation process, which consisted of me digging up just a foot of wire, splicing it and adding another wire which traveled out to my centered garden, around the beds, and back to the original splice in the wire. And what's even better, I was instructed to twist the two wires going to and from the garden, a practice that cancels the signal, meaning the only active part of the wire was the section encircling the garden. Therefore, my dog can run anywhere around the garden until he comes within five feet, and that means no more eating my flowers!
