Wireless fencing - saves you time and money

Have you ever wanted to keep your dog with you, without using a fence?  Does your dog have a problem with digging under your current fence?  Do you take your dog with you on hunting or camping trips?  Would you like to own an underground dog fence, but don't have time to spend on installation?  Are there some rooms in your house where your dog should not be?  A wireless dog fence might be a good option for you if you answer positively to any of these questions.

Wireless dog fence is a new and popular product in today's electronic world. Purchasing a wireless dog fence is a good option for budget conscious dog owners who need an effective solution to a nearly universal dog owner problem. It will give your dog plenty of freedom to run and play, while at the same time keeping him safe, secure, and well behaved.

A wireless dog fence is safe, affordable, and easy to install. It is much cheaper than building a traditional fence, and does not obstruct your view or give your yard an unsightly appearance like a fence can. Some wireless dog fences are also available for use inside the home as well as outside, giving you the ability to allow your dog some freedom inside your home while still controlling his boundaries.

And because they are easily portable, traveling is a cinch when you use wireless dog fence! If physical fencing doesn't keep your dog in, adding a static correction will keep them from even challenging the physical fence. You can even teach your dog to respect your physical fence if they are consistently kept within it, but most dogs learn it's the collar they need to respect.

A wireless dog fence does have a few priorities. The most important is that you need to get your fence from a good company. Examples include Petsafe, Innotek, and Perimeter. Make sure that the system you choose is suitable for the weight of your particular dog.

Also, you may want to consider purchasing an additional transmitter which can be used to enlarge the area. A wireless dog fence may not be the right choice for you if your yard is sloped. And you should definitely choose a model that has adjustable correction levels, so that you can personalize the training program for your particular dog.

If you use the instructions, then installing will be easy and only take a few minutes. You will place the transmitter either within your home, or possibly in your garage. The transmitter does need to be kept out of the rain. You can then place the wireless dog fence collar on your dog and begin training him; do not neglect this essential part of the process.

Training your dog to respect the boundaries of your new wireless dog fence usually takes a few weeks, but the time period greatly depends on each individual dog. Consistency and persistence in training will pay off. You should always supervise your dog for the initial period after the installation of your wireless dog fence.

You can also place flags to mark the boundaries and use them to show your dog where he is allowed to be. Keep him on a leash at first, and set the correction level on his collar to the minimal level. Put the leash on him and walk around with him until he gets shocked when you come to the boundary. This shock is very humane and is not designed to harm your dog, but just to get his attention. The static shock is similar to discharge you get after rubbing your feet on the carpet and touching a ground point.

Pull back and praise your dog after they receive the shock. You can also give treats at first to reinforce your training. Your dog may learn to respect the boundary within one or two times, or it may take a bit longer for him to understand. Take off the leash when you feel that he understands about the fence. Keep an eye on him until you know that he will stay in the fence. You can use the same method for indoor fences.

Wireless dog fence is a great new thing today, and is good for dog owners as an affordable fence for their dog. While there is possibly no perfect solution to keeping our dogs safe and contained, today's inventions such as the wireless dog fence are coming very close!
