Dog fence conclusion

The bottom line:
There are many reasons for using pet containment systems, including health and reproductive issues, leash laws, housing covenants, and good old neighborly courtesy.

Underground wired or wireless pet fences are intended to be a correction deterrent to your pet, not a punishment. Many of the more popular systems are endorsed by national humane societies and animal organizations such as the Humane Society of the US, the ASPCA, vets, vet publications, animal behaviorists, and major university veterinary schools. They are growing in popularity because of the comparative cost to wooden privacy fences, masonry walls, or chain link fences.

Remember that underground wired or wireless pet fences are meant to keep your pet in; they cannot keep other pets out. If you have a contained female dog that goes into season, it is strongly recommended that you speak with your vet to discuss your options.

Most basic underground or wireless pet fence kits come with one waterproof, lightweight receiver and a collar. If the included collar is not the right size for your pet, you can buy a collar at your local pet store and put the receiver on it. For each pet that you wish to keep within the boundaries, you must purchase an additional receiver and collar kit.

The receiver is powered by a small 6-volt battery. Most kits come with the first battery, but you must replace the battery at least every three months for it to remain effective.

Electronic fencing cannot keep other people’s pets or wild animals out of your yard.

No type of fence protects your pets from thieves who might take a fancy to your particular breed of dog.

Regardless of the type of fencing used for your dog – traditional or electronic fencing – he should never be left unsupervised in the yard while you are away.
