A dog that has been adopted becomes a member of the family it lives with. However, just as the safety of your family is a top priority the same is true for the safety of your dog. The problem arises when you need to go out or work and you don’t want to leave your dog unattended or confined to four walls in a room.
Dogs are animals that need to run and breathe fresh air. That said, as dogs will be dogs you can be sure they’ll stray beyond the perimeter of your home at the first opportunity. In these situations, dog owners find that pet fences are effective in keeping your dog safe from outside hazards.
Here’s some information on dog fences to keep your dog safe and prevent it from making a nuisance of itself in the neighborhood
What Benefits Do Dog Fences Offer?
Dog fences offer several benefits, not only for your pet but for your neighbors too. The most common problem with unrestrained dogs is that they wander into your neighbors’ houses and play with their stuff, maybe damaging something in the process, scaring someone, or even biting a person if they feel threatened.
Another benefit of dog fences is that they can protect your dog from attack by other dogs or animals, as well as avoid the possibility of your dog being run over by a moving vehicle
As all types of dog fences serve the same purpose to keep a dog safely confined to a specific area outside your home, you can expect the same beneficial results irrespective of the type of dog fence you install
What Kind Of Dog Fences Can I Get?
The most traditional type of fence there is, and the one that’s been used for ages, is the wooden fence. Wooden dog fences are very resistant to any type of weather and they can also withstand rough treatment. On the other hand, wooden dog fences are expensive and require quite some work to install, and they might make your house look bad.
If you want something completely different, then you should try an invisible dog fence instead. Invisible dog fences, also known as wireless dog fences require very little work to install. Invisible pet fences use a cable with a transmitter attached to it, and are installed below ground, around the outer perimeter of a home. The transmitter sends out a signal to a dog’s radio collar whenever it comes close to the fence. Each time the dog hears these signals, it will avoid going any further. Otherwise, the collar will give the dog a small static shock. To prevent harm to the dog, the frequency/intensity of the shock can be adjusted.
