An invisible dog fence is highly ideal if you own a dog who loves to escape whenever it gets the chance. Unlike typical types of fences, it can't be chewed to pieces nor can it hurt your dog. Here is a basic explanation of how an invisible dog fence works.
A transmitter is attached to a certain area of your home, such as a basement or garage (this area has to have easy access to an electric outlet). The transmitter emits a radio signal that travels through the perimeter of the selected boundary area via a cable buried in the ground. The buried cable is required to make a complete loop for the dog fence to function. The radio signal travels from the cable and from the ground. The signal can't be noticed in any obvious way, except by the battery powered receiver that is attached to your dog's collar. The battery powered collar that is worn by your dog is programmed to respond to the radio signal traveling through the transmitter. When the collar detects the radio signal, it knows your dog is approaching the selected boundary area, and responds depending on how you programmed it.
Some people are concerned about a hidden fence's safety, which is understandable. Invisible dog fences are very safe since they deliver a mild correction that is akin to a shock from static electricity. Additionally, an alert is sounded before your dog receives correction, so your dog may be startled, but it will never be harmed. Though an invisible dog fence can work with dogs of any age, it's best to start training with one when your dog is a puppy.
