The Electric Dog Fence: What It Is Really About

By Lisa Darling

Even if your dog is your best friend, I’m sure you don’t want it to go to areas of your property where he could cause damage or get hurt, such as your rose garden, your swimming pool or, if you have a very big dog, the area where your small children play. Having an electric dog fence installed is one of the best ways that you can keep your dog from going to areas of your property that you don’t want it to go, or even better, from going to the houses of your neighbors, who would complain to you.

The Way An Electric Dog Fence Works

There are two main elements in an electric dog fence: the first one is the collar, which the dog has to wear and that has a radio receiver; the second one is an electric wire that has to be buried in the limits of the area where the dog will be.

When the dog nears the protected boundary, this wire will transmit a weak signal to the dog’s collar battery, causing it to beep. This sound will stop the dog from crossing the boundary, however, should it disobey, despite the warning, the dog will receive a mild electric shock, which is not harmful. And if the dog feels this shock, it will surely keep away from the electric dog fence.

These products are so widespread that you can buy the so called invisible or wireless fence in almost any pet store, as well as several types of receiver collars, including weather resistant ones.

Benefits of an Electric Dog Fence

The most obvious benefit of an electric dog fence is that it protects you property as well as your neighbors’ from your dog’s games, but that’s not all. An electrical dog fence is buried underground and it can’t normally be seen (thus the “invisible fence” term), which means it won’t ruin the look of your house, specially if you have a garden that you’re proud of. With time, your own plants will grow without any hindrance and they’ll become a much prettier natural fence.

Another advantage of the electric dog fence is that your dog will not be able to cross the border if people are walking on the road, thus preventing it from hurting anyone. But the biggest advantage of all is that your dog will also be given the maximum freedom when out in the garden, as well as being well-trained and obedient.

In addition, the view from the house will not be altered, nor will the view of your house from the outside which is a problem with traditional fences.

Don’t forget to compare prices on online pet stores as well. There are some offers out there that can be really inexpensive. Remember that a fence is necessary for your dog’s safety. You’ll be glad you got one.

If you don’t want your dog to be hurt by people who might confuse its playfulness with agression, try an electric dog fence. It works by using sounds and shocks to keep your dog from going outside of your property. You can find an electric dog fence for a good price in online stores.
