Learn About Wireless Fences
A Wireless Fence allows you to contain your dog with an invisible dog fence creating a perimeter in your yard that your dog will learn not to cross. The wireless fence is very easy to set up and is a very effective pet fence. The advantages of an invisible dog fence is it can save you money on the cost of unsightly traditional above ground dog fencing such as wood or chain link fences. The best part is you will also not obstruct your view with an invisible dog fence.
We also have wireless indoor pet barriers that you can set up to keep your pet out of the trash or away from areas in your house where you don’t want your pet to go.
As compared to wired dog fencing systems, the wireless fence is easier and more convenient to install. It’s easy instead of digging trenches and burying wires; you simply position the transmitter unit, plug it in and turn it on. A wireless dog fence is also portable, allowing you to take it with you when you move or travel.
A wireless dog fence also provides a number of advantages over traditional above ground fences. First it is an invisible fence that will not mar the beauty of your property. Second with the invisible fence your dog will not be able to dig under or jump over the pet fence, providing greater safety for your pet.
If you've decided that a wireless dog fence is the perfect pet fence for your home and yard, it can be helpful to understand how these invisible fencing systems work.
How The Invisible Wireless Fence Works
Petsafe wireless fence systems consist of two separate components designed to work together – the dog fence transmitter and the dog fence receiver. The dog fence transmitter unit can be placed in the house in an area where it won’t be seen such as a closet or utility room. Then you just plug in the wireless fence transmitter and turn it on. The invisible fence transmitter emits a signal that your dog's wireless fence receiver collar can detect. You then adjust the dog fence transmitter to create a smaller or larger circular area around your house where the dog fence signal is detectable. The wireless fence receiver collar is constantly searching for the transmitter signal, which it is able to find as long as your dog stays within the invisible fence designated area. If your dog moves too far away from the dog fence signal, he or she will hear an audible warning signal. If your dog continues moving forward, the wireless fence collar will eventually lose the signal. Once this happens, the dog will receive a harmless static correction sensation.
What If I Need To Create A Larger Safety Zone
What if you find that a single dog fence transmitter unit is not creating an adequately sized "safe area" for your dog? You can create a larger and more customized recreation area for your pet by combining multiple pet fence transmitters. You can also create a pet fence zone within a pet fence zone, for example, to keep your pet out of your garden. Keep in mind that the wireless fence transmitter only creates a safe zone in a circular pattern.
Understanding the Training Process
Once you've decided upon the correct number of dog fence transmitter units and have positioned them appropriately, you'll need to train your dog so that he or she understands the wireless fence boundaries. The initial training sessions should take place with the invisible fence transmitter unit turned off. Mark the perimeter of the "safe area" with the warning flags that come with the Petsafe invisible fence. These visible flags will help your dog learn during the training process and the boundaries of your wireless fence.. Walk your dog around the boundaries on a short leash so that he or she can become accustomed to the area. After a few days, your dog will start to understand his or her limits. At this point, you can turn the dog fence transmitter unit on to the lowest power setting. As you walk your dog around the perimeter, let him or her experience the warning signal and correction stimulation occasionally. Before long, your dog will simply stop and turn back whenever he or she hears the audible signal. At this point, the training is complete and the boundary flags can be safely removed. At this time you can also turn the invisible fence transmitter signal to the normal power setting.
