Dog Fencing Systems - Efficient And Risk-free Alternatives For Your Family Members As Well As Your Dog.

Author : CH Tee

There are several dog fencing options out there for the dog owner who has issues with an escaping dog. Unfortunately many dog fencing alternatives are either really costly or potentially harmful to individuals (especially kids) once we consider electrified fence options.

A relatively inexpensive and safe answer for dog owners is an electric dog fence or dog containment system. This type of dog fencing involves burying wire around your perimeter or alternatively attaching the wire to an existing fence. This particular wire then carries a radio signal that's received by a dog that's wearing a receiver collar that is programmed to pick up the radio signal released from the dog fencing system when it gets too close towards the fence.

When the dog gets too close towards the boundary the dog gets a very low output shock. This deters the dog from going close to the fence again. This type of dog fencing system is very successful if the set up has been properly organized and when the training has been followed through with properly. Acquiring the electric dog fencing to work depends greatly on the dog having been taught its latest restrictions.

The primary reason this particular dog fencing alternative is extremely popular is the fact that it is very safe for your dog. The output of the static shock in the dog fencingcollars is really low, up to 1000 times much less than an electrified fence. How correction levels are increased is simply by increasing the quantity of pulses emitted, not necessarily by increasing volts or amps. Therefore a low level of correction isn't more physically hazardous for the dog than a high level although the discomfort obviously increases.

Other safety factors of this electric dog fencing alternative is the provision for safety cut outs if the dog gets caught within the correction zone. As soon as caught in the dog fencing correction zone the collars are generally designed to cut out and stop correcting the dog. Variable correction levels on the dog fencing collars are another factor that allows the dog owner to find the right level for their dog without having to overcorrect and also trigger the dog unwanted anxiety.

A dog fencing system which depends on the wire carrying a radio signal onlyis also safe for other individuals and animals to touch. As opposed to an electrified fence that carries high voltage levels and provides a really painful shock to anybody who touches it, this type of electronic dog fencing is safe for anyone to touch. The only concern can come up if an individual was to hold the dog fencing collar and walk into the correction zone with both metal probes touching the skin. That is obviously an unlikely or alternatively a foolish situation to have happen.

For additional assurance for the dog owner we tend to suggest buying your dog fencing from recognised manufacturers that come under the ECMA (Electronic Collar Manufacturers Association) charter. By doing this you can be sure of high safety standards for your dog. These types of dog fencing manufacturers include Innotek, PetSafe, SportDog and Dogtra.
