No, It is nothing out of a SciFi moving or the Bruce Wayne's bat cave. Invisible Dog fence are real and designed to keep your dog safe. An invisible dog fence is basically an electrical fence or boundary for your dog. There is no physical high voltage cable hidden deep inside the bushes which runs a million volts in your pooches body warning him/her never to cross this way. If that was so, you do wouldn't be crossing anywhere else for that matter. But the Electronic dog fence does use a wire, not for shocking but transmitting.
So What Is an Invisible Dog Fence Made Of?
- A transmitter
- A Receiving Wire
- Electronic Dog Collar
So how does Electronic Dog Fence Work?
An Insulated wire is place along any perimeter where you don't want your dog to pass. This can be outdoor or even inside the home. The transmitter is place at a suitable location, basement, garage, living room etc. The electronic collar is placed around your dog. Once the transmitter and dog collar is active, if the dog approached a certain distance to the insulated cable, a deterring signal is sent out by the transmitter to the dogs electronic receiver which prevents the animal from wanting to go any further or pass the electronic fence. So in other words, you will be creating an invisible pet boundary.
When your pet’s Computer Collar Receiver crosses into the signal field, it first provides an audible warning tone, then provides a gentle static correction that reminds him he’s reached the limits of his boundary. The level of correction is customized to your pet, ensuring it stays at the right level. It’s a completely safe and effective way to reinforce your pet’s training.
