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 Fort Langley 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 Fort Langley BC?
So you want to install an underground dog fence and avoid paying the $1,500+ that a big national franchise like an Invisible Dog Fence, Dog Watch or Pet Stop installer would charge? Here's how you can do a DIY install of a dog containment system for a fraction of the cost in just three steps.
First, we will install the Dog Fence Controller and test that everything works. We want the controller to be located close to a power outlet and sheltered from the elements, most people put it in a garage. Attach the controller box to the wall and drill a small hole through the wall. Run the twisted wire that came with your system from the controller box outside to the perimeter of your property. Now run the single strand wire around the property joining each end of the single strand to the twisted pair with the provided wire splices. Now switch on the system and check that everything works well.
Second, we bury the wire. The fastest way to bury wire is to use a trencher with a cable laying attachment. This tool cuts through your soil, lays the boundary wire and then backfills. You can rent a trencher at bigger tool rental stores, the cost is modest (under $50) and the time savings is huge. The rental store clerk will show you how to best use the trencher when you go to pick it up. But basically, you will feed the boundary wire through the trencher and tie one end of the wire to a stake in the ground. You will then start the trencher, engage the cutting blade and drive it around your property. Now that the wires are buried you should reconnect the system and again check that everything still works.
Third, we set up the Dog Containment System. The Dog Fence Controller will have a dial to let you adjust the field width. This controls how far from the boundary wire the collars start beeping and delivering the correction. Adjust the field width so that the field width is between one and two yards. A bigger field width will keep your dog safer but also reduces the amount of space in which they can play. Owners with bigger yards and more stubborn dogs should aim for a wider field width and owners with smaller properties and more compliant dogs should head toward the narrower end of that range. Now mark the edge of the field with the provided flags, spaced out at two yard intervals. Perform a final check of the system, and check that the collar beeps whenever you move it past the flags.
Congratulations your dog fence has been successfully installed!
Advantages of Using an Underground Dog Fence
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.
