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 Sherwood Park 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 Sherwood Park AB?
Is an underground dog fence right for you and your dog? As suburbs continue to pop up around major cities, homeowners' associations are being formed and they are busy drafting policies. One of the main policies that they are enforcing is to restrict the size, the type and even the very existence of fences due to aesthetic reasons. They do not like the visual clutter associated with conventional fences.
If you live in such a neighborhood or if you are just looking for a less expensive and more maintenance free way to protect your dog, an underground dog fence is a good choice. These fencing systems consist of three components: a transmitter, underground wiring and a receiver placed on your dog's collar.
Transmitter. This must be mounted in a dry location like a garage or a shed and it must be near an electrical outlet which it will plug into. The transmitter will then emit a radio signal that will travel through the underground wiring.
Underground Wiring. This is a single strand of insulated wire that starts at the transmitter, goes around your property and then ends back at the transmitter. If you are installing an underground dog fence yourself, it is best to use something (a hose or spray paint) to give yourself a visual idea of where you want the wiring to go. You can also enclose vegetable gardens and swimming pools, or any other area where you do not want your dog to roam.
Receiver. A receiver will come connected to a collar that is lightweight and waterproof. You do not have to use the collar that comes with the system; you will be able to take off the receiver and put it on a collar that you already have. The receiver will need a battery that will probably need replaced about every three months. Some receivers come with a rechargeable battery so this is a good thing to inquire about before you purchase a system.
An underground dog fence will not harm your dog. It is recommended by vets and national humane societies; however, you will have to take the time to train your dog. Most systems offer three operating modes: a warning, a warning and a correction and a correction only. A dog must be trained to retreat back into the yard when they hear this warning. You will be surprised though at how quickly your dog will adapt its behavior to heed the warning and not go any further than the area you have laid out for them to roam. The best way to train them is to keep them on a leash since this is something most dogs are used to and you will also have control over their actions. A training video should be included with the system you purchase.
Knowing that your dog (this system works for cats as well) is getting the exercise they need and knowing that they are also protected from running out into the street with an underground dog fence, will give you piece of mind while you are away from your home. It will also give your dog the freedom they need to stay healthy and happy
How Does the Invisible Type Dog Fence Actually Work?
An invisible dog fence offers a "fenceless" boundary to your home and yard. For those of us who do not have a fenced in yard, this is one of the best options to keep your pet inside the boundaries without the expense of putting a regular fence around your home.
There are two basic types of an invisible dog fence on the market. There is the wireless type of fence and the electric or underground type of pet fence. The biggest difference is how they are set up, and this article being a general overview, makes reference to both types.
For the electric, also known as electronic, type of fencing, the way it functions is pretty simple. First, a wire is buried around the perimeter of the area you want contained. This wire transmits a radio signal to a lightweight collar that your pet wears. Your canine should be wearing the special collar whenever she is outside in the yard. One main point to emphasize is that your pet must be trained and trained properly for an invisible dog fence to do its job in a safe and effective way. When your canine gets close to the boundary set by the wires, the collar will emit a warning sound letting your pet know he is getting too close. If your pet is properly trained to use the system, he will often not go past this point. However, if the dog goes past the boundary line, the collar will emit a mild static correction to tell your pet that is too far. The correction is not harmful to your pet and should not be viewed as inhumane. It is similar to scooting across the carpet in socks and then touching your best friend.
The other type of invisible dog fence mentioned is the wireless type of dog fencing. These systems have a transmitter that can be located in any safe and dry location like a garage. Instead of wire being buried around the perimeter of your yard, when using a wireless fencing system, you really only need to plug it in and set the area of the boundary. These types of systems are very nice if you need portability with your fencing system. They can be taken with you wherever you go. The way the collar works with a wireless fence is very similar to the electronic type.
There are many people who do not believe that using these types of fencing systems is humane. As long as directions are followed and proper training procedures are implemented, an invisible dog fence offers a very safe and effective way to keep your pet contained. It is also a fraction of the cost of fencing in your entire yard. The collars that come with these types of systems are specially designed to have variable settings of correction. You should use the lowest possible setting that effectively gets the message to your canine. Smaller dogs require lower settings and there are even special models available for little pets.
An invisible dog fence is a great way to keep your pet safe and secure within the boundaries you set. With a little training, your canine will never go past the point of needing correction. Personally, with my pets, the minute they see the collar being put on, they are on their best behavior and enjoy the freedom they get from one of these great systems. If you are thinking one of these products may be right for your canine, please do the proper research and take the time to read about the proper training techniques.
