With a good dog fence, you can save yourself a lot of worries and headaches. If you’ve ever left your dog alone for a few minutes and come back and not find it where you left it, you know what kind of worries I’m talking about. Even if the dog was in no danger at all, you don’t want to have a repetition of such a scare or wait till something really happens to your dog. With a dog fence, you can work, study, watch TV, or leave the house without the fear that you will not find your dog when you come back.
What Is There To Be Considered?
Choosing a good dog fence requires you to consider the size and type of place you live in, the area that you will limit the dog to, the size and breed of the dog, how much freedom of movement the dog needs when you’re not around, and how much you can afford to spend, of course. Therefore, it’s important to study the features and benefits of the different types of dog fences on offer, before you buy one, in order to make the right choice.
What Types of Dog Fences Are There?
In the past a dog fence was traditionally made out of wood, but today you can find a variety of dog fences made from different materials such as plastic, steel, and barbed wire. What’s more, now you can also buy a high-tech, invisible dog fence if you so desire. Here are two types of dog fences you may consider.
Wooden dog fence – This is the most durable and humane type of fence. While installing it is bothersome, it resists all types of weather and is very resistant.
On the other side of the scale, the invisible fence is the most advanced of them all, and it’s also simple to install. It’s installed by burying a cable that will mark the limits of your dog, as well as by placing flags or posts that indicate where the fence is without blocking the view. The cable is connected to a transmitter that will send a signal to your dog’s collar, making it beep if your dog gets too close to the fence. If the dog still tries to cross the fence, it will recieve a mild shock, discouraging it from trying to cross to the other side of the fence.
Because of their curious nature, unrestricted dogs will wander away at the first opportunity they get. So, if you want to keep your dog safe, and free yourself from complains from the neighbors, install a dog fence. A fence will keep problems and dangers OUT. And your dog safely IN.
