Some common questions about dog fences

Usually people have lots of questions. It’s only natural as you may not have seen a dog fence in action – people ask “what is it?” or will the dog fence hurt my dog, how will I take him out for a walk. Hopefully we have covered the most common questions below but if we’ve missed something do let us know!

What is a pet containment fence?

The Pet containment fence is a dog fence or cat fence system that uses an electronic radio signal to keep your pet WITHIN a designated containment area. This could be a small town garden or a sprawling country estate.

A containment fence can also be to keep pets OUT of an area, such as a swimming pool, patio, or veg patch.

The system sends a coded signal through a boundary wire that surrounds the designated area. The pet wears a computer collar which is programmed to pick up the signal.
If the pet enters the area the collar alerts the pet with a warning beep and if the pet continues the collar emits a static impulse. The impulse is low level and safe and is not an electric shock.

The signal around the wire is 360 degrees and so the pet cannot jump over, run through or dig under making a containment fence a more secure option in most instances. The DogFence pet containment fences also work in the interior of your home to keep your pet off a sofa or away from a kitchen worktop or out of rooms.

These containment fences can be installed on most terrains and can even be run through shallow water and wooded areas. Containment Fences are a cheaper option to traditional stock, deer or panel fencing. These fences also cover driveways and areas that can’t be fenced and they work silently and invisibly 24/7.
