Dog fence wire – Underground fence using a single strand of wire buried just below surface of soil. One end of wire rising from ground and connected to a generator to supply an electrical pulse. This system works with a special collar worn by dog. If dog crossing fence line, electrical impulse sends a signal to a receiver on collar and dog shock.
This dog fence wire is a popular system, especially for people who live in communities with association regulations or city zoning laws prohibiting above-ground fences. Invisible fencing only works if dogs are trained to respond to collar. An untrained dog could run through shock and outside fence, and then be afraid to go back through shock to come home.
Dog fence wire depends on size of your yard, how much access of yard you want to give your dog and type of dog you own. Yard size and your desire are easy to calculate. Size and type of dog can be misleading. Important aspect is level of activity. If you have a small but hyper dog who loves to run, play, jump and climb, a limited part of farm does not work as well as a large area to run. A big, lumbering dog that prefers to lie in shade need hectare fenced, so long as he can get some fresh air and relieve himself. Create a yard space according to your ability while tailoring it as close as possible to your dog needs so you both happy.
