AGE DOGS ELECTRIC FENCE
An electric fence for dogs consists of three components: wire buried around the perimeter of your yard, a transmitter box (which controls how close your dog can get to the buried wire), and a collar for each dog you wish to contain. The perimeter wire must make a continuous loop or circuit. Unlike a physical fence, your electric dog fence cannot start and stop in random places. There are many ways to layout an electric dog fence. We recommend that you plan your layout prior to beginning the burial of the perimeter wire. Please consult our installation guide for layout suggestions and detailed instructions.
You control how close to the perimeter wire you would like your dog to go. Typically, your dog will stop about three feet from the buried wire. Your dog will hear an audible warning tone (designed to alert him that he is getting close to his boundary) before his collar would give him a static correction. The static correction is designed to alert your dog that he is at the end of his boundary. It will not hurt your dog in any way. The correction is designed to alert your dog, not hurt him. Please note, the level of correction is adjustable on most systems we sell.
Are you putting more than one dog on an electric dog fence? No problem. You can have as many dogs, cats or a mixture of both as you would like. The only factor that is the same for all animals is how close they can get to the boundary wire. Each dog or cat’s correction level is determined by his own receiver collar.
We recommend using training flags to help your dog understand his new boundaries. The training flags are very important in places where there are few visual cues, such as a driveway, sidewalk, or an open grass area. The training flags are not permanent. Your dog will learn his new boundaries in about two weeks. Once your dog is familiar with his boundaries, you will remove the training flags in stages. You will work with your dog during the training period. Our training protocol was developed by dog training experts. It is easy to follow yet highly effective.
Does the thought of burying wire sound like too much work? Electricdogfence.com also offers several wireless dog fence systems. These dog fences are simple to set up and are portable. They are perfect for daily use or for a traveling dog. Be sure to check out the PetSafe Instant Fence as well as the new PetSafe Stay and Play system . Both of these systems offer many of the same features as the traditional in ground pet fences, without the hassle of burying wire.
Should I install an electric dog fence myself?
Most consumers will consider installing an electric fence for dogs themselves after they get a quote from a professional installer such as Invisible Fence, DogWatch, or PetStop. A professionally installed system can cost over $1000 for one dog! Also, many systems rely on special proprietary batteries that you can only get from the installer who sold you the system. The relationship you build with your professional installer can add up to big dollars over the years.

Will an electric pet fence hurt my dog?
It will not. Electric fences for dogs have come a long way since they were invented by Invisible Fence back in the early 1970’s. Today’s dog fences feature micro-sized receivers (designed specifically for toy breeds and other small dogs) disposition based receiver programs for stubborn or hard to train dogs and a more humane approach to training your dog to his electric fence system.
We have seen many improvements in the electric pet fence industry since we installed our first dog fence in the spring of 1990.
