Wire Dog Fence

Wireless dog fence and pet containment is a great way to set pet boundaries. Portable and can adjust to your home and yard needs.

Why Go Wireless?

There are many reasons why you should choose a wireless dog fence. They are effortless to install as there is no digging to bury a wire. No tools are necessary. All you need to do is plug in the transmitter and you are good to go. Simply adjust the size that you want your coverage circle to be with the transmitter. Another great reason to buy a wireless dog fence is that it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg like traditional fences do.

How it Works

The transmitter, located inside of your home casts a circular radio signal across your yard. This signal is not obstructed by walls or other structures in your home. Your dog wears a special collar that receives the signal from the transmitter. This collar has metal probes on it that touch your dog’s neck.

Your dog will enjoy roaming freely around your yard until he begins to cross the boundary area. As he approaches the edge, he will receive a warning beep to let him know not to continue going forward. However, if he decides to continue on, he will receive a mild, static correction. This shock in no way harms your dog, it will just surprise him a little bit. The safety of your pet is never compromised.

When working with your wireless dog fence, you can choose the level of correction you want to work with. Things you should consider include the size, the age and the temperament of the dog. You may decide to even choose a tone only setting. This audible alert is heard by the controller. Some of the better units come equipped with rechargeable batteries and a battery charger to make life easier.

Perfect for Travel

As wireless dog fences are convenient and portable, you can take them with you as needed. They are perfect for those who love to travel with their dog. Whether you are visiting friends or taking an RV trip, a wireless dog fence is the way to go. Wherever you are, you just plug in the transmitter, set the circle size and there you have it. Your dog will learn his boundaries quickly, especially if you place a few training flags around the yard, giving him a visual idea of where he should avoid.

Training Tips

Training your dog properly is essential to the success of your pet containment fence. It should take about 2 weeks for your dog to be completely trained, but may take a little less or a little more, depending on your pet.

There are several guidelines to follow to make sure that your dog training is a success. You can even let your dog get used to wearing the collar first, by removing the battery in the beginning.

  • When you begin to train your pet, do it with a leash until he gets used to the border.
  • On day one, use the tone only setting. Take him over to the boundary flags and let him hear the beep. This will allow him to grasp the concept of where the boundaries are.
  • Your dog can be trained 10 to 15 minutes long, 2 or 3 times a day. You can adjust this time accordingly, as every dog is unique
  • Having more frequent, shorter sessions are a better idea than having less frequent, longer sessions.
  • During your sessions, play with your dog in the containment area.
  • Your dog should be comfortable near the boundary flags at the end of every training session.
  • Give your dog a treat as you move back into the play area away from the flags.
  • Finish each training session with lots of play and praise. Keep a happy attitude.
  • Veterinarians recommended to not keep his collar on for more than 12 consecutive hours.
  • You should decrease his training if you see signs of distress such as if he refuses to go outdoors, keeps his tail between his legs or shakes nervously.

Accessories

What if your wireless dog fence doesn’t cover as much ground as you need it to? In that case, you just need to purchase a wireless expansion transmitter to work with your existing system. If you have more than one dog, you will need to purchase an additional collar for each dog that you want to add to your system. This will let your containment circle be larger and the signal cancels out where the two circles interact with each other. For systems that don’t have rechargeable batteries, you may want to go ahead and pick up some 6-volt replacement batteries. We also have replacement chargers in case you need one.
