How does an invisible dog fence work?
Some people assume that there are a lot of complexities in how invisible fences work. However, they are fairly simple and straightforward.
Each invisible dog fence system has a transmitter box that emits a specific radio field, travelling along a copper-insulated boundary wire. Meanwhile, the dog wears a collar with a receiver that can detect radio signal transmissions from the boundary wire.
The receiver gives off a warning vibration or beeping sound when the collared dog approaches the boundary — it triggers mild, harmless static as a deterrent when the dog steps out of the boundary.
What are the benefits of using an invisible dog fence?
An invisible dog fence can do wonders in keeping dogs safe within the boundaries of your property. And the best part about this pet fence is that the view isn’t obstructed by tall containment fences surrounding the perimeter. Rather, it uses technology and electronics — and some dog training — to keep it up and running.
By setting up a containment fence, you reinforce the idea that a specific area is positive and that leaving the said area is negative, therefore teaching the dog to acknowledge boundaries.
Are dog containment fences safe?
Yes. Containment fences are generally safe as long as the boundary wires are installed properly — you can either bury them 1 to 2 inches underground or attach them to an existing fence.
How do I train my dog to use a dog containment system?
You can ease your dog into a containment dog fence by familiarising them with how it works for 15 minutes a day for two weeks straight. Once they learn to retreat into the yard based on the mild static deterrent they feel when crossing boundaries, you can leave the system up without worries.
