In Ground Electric Dog Fence

By on August 18, 2015 in Home Maintainence & Remodeling

Having a dog is a lot of responsibility. And perhaps the biggest responsibility of them all is to make certain that the dog does not sneak out ant any point of time without you knowing it. And to prevent this from happening, you need to build high walls for fences which in turn require expensive permits from the municipality. But thanks to the concept of electric fences, your pocket will feel much heavy now.

So how does an electric fence work? Well the concept is quite effective and extremely simple as well. Here, a wire is buried inside the ground around the perhymeter within which you need to confine your dog. Well, this wire basically acts an antenna which feeds signal to the transmitter laced inside the fence. The transmitter produces radio frequency that are picked up by the receiver on the dog’s collar. Here you get two types of electric fences. In the first type, your dog gets a simulation whenever he comes near to the fence via the collar fitted around his neck.

If the dog ignores this simulation and continues its approach towards the buried wire, an electric shock is transmitted into its body which unsettles it. A second type dog of electric fence uses a warning tone when the dog comes closer to the buried wire but then uses a spray of citronella to correct the dog.

But there are other things which need to be done to make the electric fence effective. And the most important of the other things is the fact that your dog should be able to properly understand the system. Your dog will need to be conditioned and trained before the dog electric fences become effective at keeping your dog safe at home. Going by the normal scale the training period is of 30 days with atleast 1 hour to be devoted to it daily. This timing is subject to change depending on the type and other features of your dog.

And generally it has been observed that the spray type of electric fence is much less effective as compared to the electric shock one. Also, there is a loophole in the system of electric fence. A dog can even train itself to pass that protection zone quickly enough to prevent any of the aftereffects like shock, simulation, etc.

If you are planning to purchase an electric fence make sure you do a extensive background check on all types to make sure that their is no issues that’ll cause your doggy an issue or hurt them in the future. You don’t need your dog to suffer for your mistakes.
