Picking a fence system.

So you've decided to pick a dog fence system and don't know where to start?

Let's start right here!

My first question is would you like a wired or wireless system? If you haven't yet decided please read on. If you have decided please click your designated option above.

Deciding on a purchase between a wired and wireless system can be hard - but that's why we're here to help! In this guide I will give you detailed information to help you choose the fence system that's perfect for your companion.

Wired Systems

What are the advantages and disadvantages of having a wired system?

Will my dog respond to this kind of a system?

Will this system hurt my dog?

An in-ground dog fence system is going to bring your dog all the benefits of being able to roam and be free without putting the burden on the owner of the pet either wandering into the road or past their fence into dangerous territory.


The difference between a wired and wireless system is huge! Some of the advantages are as follows:

1. You know the boundary zone! You've installed the wire - and you can fix the wire if a problem arises.

2. It's possible to be setup in most kinds of terrains where wireless would be impossible.

3. The size of the property can be very small or up to 100 acres.

Some of the disadvantages are as follows:

1. You cannot adjust the boundary wire. Once it's in the ground the only way to add or remove is by using additional splices.

Wireless Systems

A wireless system is a great alternative to an in-ground fence, but all the conditions have to be ideal for this to work successfully. There's a few factors that will allow or prevent you from using a wireless system in comparison to an in-ground system.


What are the advantages and disadvantages of having a wireless system?

Will my dog respond to this kind of a system?

Some of the advantages are as follows:

1. Wireless can be placed in your home without connecting any wires except the power!

2. Can be expanded as needed using additional transmitters (on certain systems)

3. It runs on 802.15 - so it will not affect your home computer WiFi network.

4. Boundary zone can be adjusted at will to either increase or decrease the range the dog can travel before correction.

Some of the disadvantages:

1. The property must be perfectly flat and there should be no metal buildings or walls in the area. Any kind of metal can interfere with wireless signals.

2. More sporadic than using in-ground fences. An in-ground fence is always more predictable.
