Wireless Fence – Keep Your Pet Safely Within Your Home’s Boundaries

By Miles Lewis

There are several different varieties of wireless fence for worried pet owners to choose from, though the layout of your yard will have a lot to do with what is available to you. The fence provides an invisible barrier for your dog or cat that keeps them well within their bounds and safely on your property without worrying about them wandering out into the street. They are also fairly affordable, especially when you compare them with the standard vinyl, wooden, or aluminum fencing — and there is absolutely no risk of your pets getting out of your property.

The fence is simple to install and works by forming a fenceless barrier where your pet can play without any worries regarding his safety. With these, you lay a cable all cross the edges of the perimeter where you want your pets to be able to stay in. This cable sends a signal to the special collars that you are to put on your pets. The wire works with a radio signal which is relayed to a collar that is worn around the pet’s neck. When the pet gets near this buried wire, the collar will first emit a warning signal that is activated by the buried wire. The pet will back away from the wire’s location or if the dog ignores the signal he will receive a very mild shock of electricity. There are also types of wireless fence kits that feature wireless installation.

The first type of wireless fence is actually fairly high tech. These use GPS systems to locate the “fence” as opposed to you having to lay the wire, so there is no installation on your part. This type of wireless fence system works well for most pet owners and has the added flexibility of not having to physically move the fence in order to change the location of the boundary. This type of fencing system uses the collar much like any other type of wireless or underground fence, and the shock settings are adjustable as well — which may need to be done for larger dogs.

The wireless fence is very safe not only for the pet, but also for families with children. The fence only affects animals that are wearing the collar that comes with the fence kit.

There is absolutely no need for concern among pet owners for the safety of any human residing in the household when it comes to these products. There are a lot of misconceptions about these fences, especially by those who believe that they hurt the animals they affect. The truth is that as long as the shock is set appropriately, these fences are completely humane. They even prove to be more safe overall because pets can not jump over or go under the fence border.

Many dog and cat owners who have used these fences can attest to their effectiveness at keeping their pets safe at home, where they should be.

There are numerous misconceptions surrounding the invisible fence. Learn about the real benefits and demerits before writing off these effective and humane safety tools.
