How to Prevent Your Farm Dog from Getting Lost

By Invisible Fence® Brand on 04-02-2024

Many pet owners struggle with keeping their farm dog from roaming. Although outdoor or farm dogs are often used to protect property, keeping them from running off too far can be difficult. We put together our top tips on how to keep your dog from roaming.


Why is my dog roaming?

Before trying to change your pet’s behavior, it is important to understand why that behavior occurs. Dogs can roam for a variety of reasons. Many farm and outdoor dogs are bred to be working animals that protect their herd or property. For these dogs, picking up a scent can cause them to investigate further than the owner may like. Dogs can also roam when they are looking for a mate.

Ways to prevent your dog from roaming.

While we can’t change our dog's natural instinct, there are actions you can take to keep your dog safe. Assuming your dog is not being used for breeding purposes, it is important to have them fixed to ensure they don’t travel looking for a mate. While having a traditional fence around your property ensures containment, it isn’t always the answer depending on how your property is laid out.
