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 Slave Lake 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 Slave Lake AB?
After fifteen years in the dog fence business I have seen a lot of products out there. Dog Guard, Pet Stop, Pet Safe, Dog Watch, Innotek and many more. I thought I would give my professional opinion on the best fence for the safety of your pet.
First is the underground, there are many brands to choose from. With a underground dog fence there is a transmitter typically installed in a dry area either in a garage or basement. After the transmitter is installed the loop wire is then installed. Some yards are larger than others so when you lay out the loop wire keep in mind that where you put the wire the dog will stay back anywhere from 4 feet to up to ten feet depending on the size of the yard. There are different methods that can be used to do this.
I would recommend calling the local tool rental store to see if they rent a machine for this, most of them do these days. Another way is to use a good lawn edger cut a slot then use a garden weed tool (short handled tool with a v at the end) to poke the wire down in the trench. When installing the wire remember to leave enough wire to get from the perimeter into the garage or basement. What I do is leave enough wire to insert both ends into my cordless drill and use the drill to twist the two together. Once twisted this area will not omit any signal so it will be safe for your dog to cross and safe in the garage or basement. This will also make it easy to lay the two wires in the same trench and easy to staple to the wall in the basement or garage. OK the wire is in three steps left. First use a skill saw with a asphalt blade to score a line in the driveway. After the score is done use a screwdriver to poke the wire into the score. To seal the drive I found that wet-dry roofing is not only the most cost efficient but also most effective. Next Place the flags the same distance away from the wire around the perimeter. Final step train your dog. As you can see there is a lot of work involved in the underground electronic dog fence.
The underground pet fence receiver activates when it enters the signal field and the wireless receiver activates when the receiver leaves the signal field.
OK now we now what is involved with the underground dog fence lets talk wireless.
The wireless pet fence is only manufactured by Pet Safe. The set up is simple depending on the size of your yard. Lets say you have a 1/4 acre lot.
On a 1/4 acre lot the ideal place to install the transmitter would be in the center of the house. Next install the transmitter by simply plug it in to a nearby outlet. After the transmitter is installed place the battery into the receiver. After the battery is installed it is time to mark the pets boundary with the flags. On a 1/4 acre the transmitter range will need to be turned close to all the way up. Unfortunately with the wireless fence it only works in a 360 degree radius of the transmitter, in other words up to a 90 foot radius around the transmitter making at total of 180 feet around. Take your flags and receiver and start walking to the edge until the receiver activates, then put in a flag. Continue around the property until you have flags about 10 feet a part around the entire property, then train your pet.
There you have it the wireless dog fence VS the the underground dog fence. If you have a small yard like a condo or town house then the wireless is probably for you. If you have a large yard then a underground fence is right for you. I my self have both I use the underground fence at home, not just to contain my pet but also it keeps him out of the gardens. I also have it wired in areas inside my house to keep them out of the cats area and the garbage. The wireless system I keep in my camper and flag a small area for them when camping. My dogs Chance, Frannie and Senior Nutts love the freedom at home or on vacation and I feel great knowing they are safe. I use the Pet Safe underground fence and the Pet Safe wireless system.
Electric Dog Fences, Cheaper Way to Contain Your Dog
An invisible dog fence is exactly that, it is invisible, you cannot touch it see it or feel it. Even so, it works very well at stopping your dog from jumping over your fence. The main feature of an invisible dog fence is, you can set a boundary where your dog can roam around in.
The invisible dog fence is used for two main applications. The first one is if you have a dog that just loves to escape from your garden or backyard. You know the type of dog we are talking about, they can jump and even climb fences, squeeze through the smallest gap or dig tunnels beneath the fence. Having one of these dogs is extremely frustrating because they are so difficult to contain. What are your options, you can replace the fence, but with what? It would have to be a very high fence and it would have to go underground as well, and this type of fence does not come on the cheap.
The 2nd scenario is if you want to restrict your dog from a certain part of your yard, for example, if your dog has a favorite place where it likes to go to toilet and it is killing your lawn or you may want to restrict your dog's movements to a specific part of your backyard. There is a lovely benefit of a wireless fence if you have an RV and like to go traveling with your dog. Because a wireless fence can be set up instantly, when you reach your destination, you can switch on the transmitter, put the collar on your dog's neck and hey presto he can run around but won't get lost.
Because you can't see the invisible dog fence, the difficulty then becomes knowing where the perimeter is. The way it works is that you have a transmitter which sends out a radio signal or you have a wire buried underground which denotes the boundary. The dog wears an electronic collar and when it approaches the boundary the collar receives a signal and emits an audible warning bleep. If your dog continues towards the invisible dog fence then it will receive a mild static shock. This will startle your furry friend and make him turn away from the fence.
So you and your dog know where the actual boundary is, you get a set of flags with the invisible dog fence. You then place these flags at strategic points around the boundary area so your dog will learn where it can and cannot roam freely. You do not need any previous experience in training your dog as the invisible dog fence comes with detailed training, plus tips and advice.
