According to American Kennel Club, Australian Shepherds are known to be smart, work-oriented, and exuberant dogs. Their loyalty and intelligence makes them very easy to train and ready to learn.

Here is Millie's Story!

Millie is a one-year-old Australian Shepherd who lives with her dog parents, Mark and Carolyn. Millie and her owners appreciate life in Snow Camp, North Carolina. A few of Millie's favorite activities include playing outside in her big yard and getting the occasional tummy rub.

Why did Millie's parents contact Invisible Fence of the Triad?

Millie is a part of Mark and Carolyn's family, so her safety is a top priority. Millie's owners wanted her to have the ability to run and play in her yard freely. They also needed to feel confident that she wouldn't wander too close to the road or away from her property. Mark and Carolyn then contacted Invisible Fence of the Triad to find out more information about outdoor containment solutions.

How did Invisible Fence of the Triad help Millie play safely in her yard?

Invisible Fence of the Triad recommended the Boundary Plus® Wired System. This system is the original pet fence with advanced technology. It offers the longest range, the most room to play and exclusive free pass. 

Traditional dog fencing takes away play area in the yard and can be easy for your pet to run through. Boundary Plus Wired prevents "break outs" by creating the boundary based on time, not distance.

With the proper training from Invisible Fence of the Triad's team, Millie's owners now feel confident when she is playing outside. They have peace of mind that she will always stay in the yard and safe in her boundaries.

"The employees are very professional and do truly care about your pet’s safety." - Carolyn
