Indoor dog fences are small wireless transmitters that function like a mini electric dog fence system. These units are used to createoff-limits areas or barriers to keep your dog or cat out of certain areas of your house. Outdoor wireless zones are similar but are used in the yard instead of in the house and may have an option to operate in wired mode just like an in-ground dog fence. Both Indoor and Outdoor Pet Barriers compatible with a variety of electric dog fence systems so one collar can be used for both the containment fence and the wireless barrier. If you don't already use or plan to use an electric dog fence system, you can purchase a the Barrier Zone & Collar Kit.
Popular uses for Indoor Dog Fences include keeping pets off of furniture, blocking certain rooms of the home or stairs (without the use of a baby gate or other physical barrier), and keeping Rover from barreling through an open front door. Indoor pet fence transmitters are small, disc-shaped units that are either battery operated or plug into a standard outlet for power. They transmit a wireless, size adjustable, circular boundary. Your dog wears a receiver collar that communicates with the transmitter and issues a warning tone if your dog nears the boundary and a static correction if he continues into the off-limits area.
Like the Indoor Barriers, outdoor wireless zones create off-limits areas in your yard. Some outdoor zones function wirelessly, just like the indoor zones, others have the optionto operate wirelessly or in wired mode using buried wire to increase the boundary capacity and allow for a custom shape rather than a circle. Outdoor Zones Barriers are often used to keep pets out of swimming pools, away from flower or vegetable gardens, and to protect gates or other access points like the garage door so the dog doesn't bolt when you open it. Outdoor pet barrier zones are often used in conjunction with in-ground pet fence systems to create small off-limits areas within the perimeter of the pet fence.
Each Pet Barrier system is compatible with specific electric dog fence system collars so be sure to check the compatibility list on each product if you plan to add the zones to an existing system.
