Underground Dog Fencing What You Get What You Dont

by Robin J Derry



With over 100 million dogs in America, keeping some pooches in, and others out requires commitment, a grasp of your dog's true character, and an eye for the pet containment innovations emerging from the digital age. Dog containment fence technologies range from the Paleolithic stone-and-timber walls, include a range of underground pet fencing ideas, and finishing with the avant guard radio and wireless pet fencing.

In Ground Dog Fence - Basic Stuff To Know About. Underground pet fences rely on a 4-part system in order to establish a true safety zone for doggies.

1. Hard Wires. Narrow gauge - small diameter solid copper wires, insulated and weather-protected via an outer plastic sheathing, constitute the "circuit", through which the signal travels. In ground pet fencing wire spools typically carry up and over 200 ft. of wire. Installation is simple. Carefully mark-off the actual perimeter line that marks the "safe zone" boundaries for your doggies. Next, a small hand-size trowel is all you'll need to slice through grass, or to dig a small 3inch trench into which the wire will be set. At any "join" area, or where you've had 2 wires intersect, you'll need to simply remove wire insulation for about 2 inches, then twist the two ends together, sealed by a connection threaded cap. Result? You get a solid connection, plus weather resistant underground electric dog fence that can carry a steady training signal for years.

2. Transmitter Unit. Normally a simple plug-in device, the underground dog fence transmitter sends out a continuous signal pulsing through the underground perimeter wire. Result? A tunnel shaped invisible "barrier" is created, leaving an interior "safety zone" for Rover, Daisy or Rin Tin Tin to play within. The electronic pet fence is designed to create a low-impact, easy-to-install and effective pet containment system to keep your dogs safe but space-constrained.

3. Collar Receiver Units. A light weight weather resistant collar is the "messenger" part of the underground dog fence system, where the "action" and training occurs. A simple receiver technology, the underground pet fence collar and controller transmitter can be calibrated or powered up or powered down, in order increase the radius of the "beware don't enter" zone along the perimeter line. After training, dogs quickly learn that the "beep beep beep" sound radiating form their collar means "stay away"...or receive a low voltage shock from the collar's pins, which butt up onto the dog's neck. Don't worry, there's no physical harm or impairment caused by the "corrective" shock, rather your dog experiences a startling sensation which effectively trains, and reminds her where the boundary line exists.

4. And Your Dog. No underground pet fence would be complete without a dog or two to complete the system. Training is gentle, lasting only 10 minutes or so on several sessions, with your dog on a leash, wearing the collar...listening for the tell-tale "beeps" near the line of warning flags inserted into the ground, acting as a visual cue. Gentle walking, coaxing your dog with words of encouragement, leading her gently towards the barrier until the rapid "beeping" followed by a short corrective shock occur. No surprise that mentally nimble situation-solving dogs quick deduce the "meaning" of this newly installed underground do fence, and quickly learn to stay within the "safe zone".

Underground Pet Fences Versus Radio Pet Fencing. Wires, digging and installation, completing quality wire hook-ups at the transmitter end of the underground dog fence impose a level of work and attention to detail not necessary with the plug-and-play wireless dog fencing systems. True, wireless may cost a little more...and you might find that materials or signal interrupts lead to "dead zones" where a dog could escape...a situation less likely with hard-wired underground electric dog fence set-ups.
