If you don’t want to lose your dog but still want to give it the freedom to roam around your yard, then you will definitely want to get a wireless dog fence. Wireless dog fences are one of the most effective ways to keep your pet within your home’s boundaries while still offering it some semblance of freedom. With so many wireless fences in the market it can be quite difficult figuring out which one is best suited to your situation, but, have no worries.

This article will help you choose the right wireless pet fence for your articles.

How Wireless Fencing Works

Before we get to how a wireless dog fence works you should know that it provides you with the freedom to decide the roaming radius of your dog. This can range from just a few feet to acres.

An electronic transmitter emits a radio signal that is delivered to a wire that is buried some inches below the surface of your sod. Your dog will be wearing a collar that will have a receiver that will detect the radio signal emitted by the boundary wire. As your dog approaches the boundary wire, the collar on the dog beeps a warning tone.

If the dog chooses to ignore the beep but continues through the boundary wall, the collar produces static stimulation that corrects the dog.

Some of the issues you should consider when purchasing the wireless dog fence include:

Area You Should Cover

Not all wireless dog fences cover the same amount of area. Most containment systems come with 500 feet of boundary wire. If you think this is not sufficient for you, you could purchase wire extension kits. On average most transmitters will emit a signal for up to 5 acres if your acreage is bigger than that, you should purchase higher power transmitters.

Installing a Wireless Pet Fence

You should know that the transmitter needs to be installed indoors in a spot in your house that does not experience below freezing temperatures. When installing the boundary wire you will need to make a circuit around the perimeter. You will need to place it right below the surface of your ground. You can use a flat-edged spade to achieve this.

Receiver Collar

There are various types of dog receiver collars that are designed for a variety of dog temperaments and sizes. Some collars run on replaceable batteries while others are rechargeable. If your dog is stubborn you can choose a collar with greater correction intensity. The numerous varieties of collars means that you will easily find something within your budget.

Training Your Dog for a Wireless Fence

Your dog will not automatically know what is going on and you will have to train him for the first few weeks. This training will be required and will let him know his boundary limits. One thing you could do is place flags on the boundary and let your dog roam while on a leash, before putting a collar on him. With time he will be able to associate the beeping sound with the boundary.
