Invisible fences are fast becoming a thing in the contemporary world with many people owning pets and not wanting the tiresome and costly expenses of an actual wall.
The ideology behind an invisible fence is that when your dog goes past the demarcated area, it gets a little jolt around its neck by the collar.
The shock that the pet receives is however not that intensive and is a suitable enforcement method rather than a punishment. Many advantages come when you use invisible dog fences both to the dog and the property in general.
1. Hidden from the sight of the pet and passers-by
The best part of an invisible fence is that nobody notices it is there, not people walking by. You can have a fantastic view of what is happening on the other side of your house while keeping your pet within your boundaries.
The fence installation does not mess up the lawn or perfect grass outside, and your pet can still play and stay away from strangers without crossing the fence.
2. Cost and maintenance of the fence is cheap
The installation of the invisible fence is pretty easy to do and cheap when compared to building a physical wall. What you only need is to bury a wire and connect a radio transmitter to the dog’s collar.
The fence doesn’t require maintenance, repainting or repairs as physical barriers do. The dog is usually the most significant hazard to a physical wall as it will dig under to get out or scratch the wall making you need to redo the paint.
3. More flexibility
The invisible wall offers the owner a lot of flexibility regarding installation. Because it uses radio waves, you can install it in areas you want your pet out of, like your garden and not only around the perimeter of your yard.
Dogs are notorious for digging up holes in the garden and ruining the plants that you have in there. By installing an invisible fence, it ensures that your dog always goes to play elsewhere.
4. Invisible fences offer convenience
Hard to reach areas especially around trees can be a headache when installing a physical fence to keep your dog in and controlled. You find your neighbour already has a permanent wall and want to build yours which can be hectic.
The invisible fence gives you a kind of convenience that goes a long way into saving your hard-earned money.
5. Wireless pet containment systems
Another alternative to an ideal fence option is the wireless containment system where you bury a device in the middle of the compound, and it creates an invisible fence circularly.
The only problem with the wireless containment system is that you need to place it in the middle of the area you need to contain the pet in. Its circular manner also limits you not to encompass the entire area that you are trying to keep the dog out of.
An invisible fence is a great way of keeping your dog on a leash without really having one. The dog feels freer and not enclosed in an area, and it can have more fun having a fence only in their head which even trains their skills better.
