FAQ: Invisible Fence Underground Dog Fence
It’s important to do your homework before buying an electric dog fence. In this blog we answer frequently asked questions about underground dog fences and everything a pet owner should know about Invisible Fence® Brand.
Do Invisible Fence systems work?
Electric dog fences only work as good as the time spent training your dog to understand its new boundaries. Proper training is critical to ensure that your pet understands and stays within the established boundaries. During the training process, your professional Pet Trainer will introduce the customized static correction to your pet which reinforces the boundaries of your property and tells your pet clearly where they can and cannot go.
We're so confident in our solutions that we offer extensive guarantees and warranties on all our products including a One-Year, Money-Back Performance Guarantee on professionally installed, premium outdoor Invisible Fence® Brand systems.
How does Invisible Fence work?
We’re glad you asked! For our outdoor containment solutions, a wire is installed around the perimeter of your property, creating the Invisible Boundary®. Then, a transmitter sends a radio signal along the wire. The radio signal is picked up by your pet's Computer Collar® Receiver, which emits a warning sound when your pet approaches the Invisible Boundary®.
Are electric dog fences safe?
Invisible Fence is safe and humane. In fact, it is highly recommended by veterinarians, professional dog trainers, animal behaviorists and other pet experts. While the correction from a Computer Collar® Receiver may be uncomfortable and startling to your pet, it will not hurt them. Many pets only feel the correction once or twice and don't challenge the system afterwords.
It is important to note that we have thousands of different customizable corrections and the correction used is based on the personality of your pet, not the size or breed. We also use animal behaviorist-approved training to ensure a stress-free transition while the pet learns its new boundaries.
Which is better, Traditional Fence or Invisible Fence?
There are several pros to Invisible Fence compared to traditional fences. One reason people prefer Invisible Fence is because it doesn't change your landscape. (win)
Not only is there not physical barrier, but it is also significantly cheaper than other regular fences. The upfront cost is more affordable and there isn't as much upkeep. And if you do need tune-ups, Invisible Fence® Brand has professional technicians, so you don’t have to do the work. (win-win)
Plus, more and more neighborhoods are wanting to preserve the landscape and open environment, so your HOA may not allow a traditional fence. If your neighborhood prohibits fences, Invisible Fence may be a good alternative to letting your dogs roam freely and safely. (win-win-win)
What are cons of hidden dog fences?
Like anything, Invisible Fence has its watch outs. While Invisible Fence keeps your pet contained within safe boundaries, it doesn’t prevent other animals from entering your yard. This is true – and potentially a con if you live in an area with predators. However, predators can also scale traditional fences. Pet owners should always use their best judgment when leaving their pet unsupervised regardless of what type of fence you have installed.
What is the best electric pet fence?
Well, we are biased because we are the pioneer of the pet containment industry and invented the first electric dog fence in 1973. But in addition to being the original pet fence, Invisible Fence also has the best technology on the market and protected over three million pets.
What is the difference between Invisible Fence® Brand and other wireless fences?
Not all electronic pet containment is created equal. The quality and levels of service vary by brand. Unlike DIY pet fences, Invisible Fence solutions are professionally installed and have technicians to help year-round. In addition, Invisible Fence also has certified pet trainers who have taken collegiate-level pet training courses to ensure the best experience for your pet.
