Are you tired of your dog sneaking out or escaping from the boundaries of your home? Are you worried that your dog may run out to the street and meet an accident? Are you tired of your neighbors calling you to find that your dog has made a mess in their yard? Sometimes a wired fence may not do the trick in keeping your dog within the bounds of your home or specific area. Many have now shifted from wired fences to wireless dog fences. We have seen how some dog owners have chained their pets or put up fences to prevent dogs from escaping or going beyond the boundary of the yard. However, some communities no longer approve of homeowners setting up wired fences. To add, wired fences also take extra money and effort to maintain. You’ll also have to worry about your dog digging holes underneath these fences which will not only ruin your property but again take more of your time to have it fixed and hole closed.
The wireless dog fence is one that is battery operated that sends radio waves which will build an invisible boundary or fence for your dog. An electronic device on the collar will pick up the transmission from the radio waves which will signal your dog when he is pushing against the bounds. The shock that it sends to your dog might surprise him and hurt just a little bit. However, it will not have hurtful long lasting effects. The only thing your dog will remember is not to go past his boundaries. You may be surprised that training your dog with this kind of tool might sometimes also take a little more effort and assessment. Some big dogs can withstand the shock or other dogs have a higher tolerance for pain. If you do buy a wireless dog fence, it is important to check the information about the grounding as well as observe if it has any effect on your dog. It is also important to inform your kids about the tool and what it does so that they can also stay away from harm and understand what happens to your pet. Some owners may be uncomfortable with the part that it sends a shock to the dogs; however this may be better than having your dog going over the boundary only to be hit by a car. Also, it is a better sight to see a dog that knows his boundaries and can play freely as compared to one that is chained and barking to wish to be free.
To have a peace of mind, you can go online and read on some of the wireless dog fence brands and customer reviews. It will give you a better idea of what to expect from their products and effects on dogs from the eyes of actual pet owners. At the same time, you will be able to learn which of the brands will better suit your needs as not all of them have the same features. This type of training has been assessed and labeled as a safe tool to use for pets. In addition, many dog owners have seen that this actual training does work.
