One thing that all dog owners worry about is their pet wandering away from home and getting lost or injured. For some, putting a fence in the yard is a great solution to keep the dog safe, but others who live in areas where fences are not allowed must seek other options. If your community does not permit above ground fences, or if you do not like the aesthetics of a fence, then an invisible dog fence might be the best choice for your four legged friend.
Some dog owners wonder whether an invisible fence is a safe option for man’s best friend. Invisible fences come with different strengths, so as long as you purchase the right fence for your type of dog, then the invisible fence is perfectly safe for your pet.
If you have a toy Poodle or other dog of similar size, your pet requires a different system than an animal of much bigger size, such as a Boxer or German Shepherd. Invisible fences today are different than they were when they first hit the market in the 1970s. During the early years of invisible fences, a dog would receive a fairly strong shock if it crossed the boundary. And back then, dogs weren’t given a warning before experiencing shock.
Invisible fences today work differently, depending on brand, but in general, the dog wears a collar that receives a signal when a dog approaches the boundary. As the dog continues to approach the boundary, the signal becomes stronger. When the dog crosses the invisible fence, they experience a small shock that is similar to a static shock we experience when the air is very dry.
