Why Perimiter Technologies? They produce best-in-class technology so your dog is more likely to stay where you want him. They also design, manufacture, and support their products in the United States. Not only are there products better, they are inexpensive, higher quality and you support American-made products

Totally unlike that mega-corporation with their expensive Chinese-made products. (We won't mention any names, but you'll find them in your local Petsmart.)

Electronic Dog Fence

There are two types of electric dog fence: wireless, or wired (called in-ground, or underground).

Underground (Wired) Fence Systems

Produced by several manufacturers and available in a range of types, styles and prices, these electronic pet fencing systems use a boundary wire to transmit the signal around your property. Because the wire can be laid in any shape, you can select where he/she is allowed to go and where to keep him out. The wire does not have to be buried, but it will be better if it is. Expect to put some work into installation.

Why choose a Wire Dog Fence System? These systems allow you to choose the shape of the boundary to go around flower beds, or just provide a specific area you want to contain your dog. The products are strictly about dog containment though, so there is no remote control that can be added.

More info: Wired Dog Fence Systems.

Wireless Dog Fence

A wireless dog fence is the simplest to install, requiring no cabling and potentially, you could be up and running in minutes. There are restrictions to consider before purchase. The siding on some houses, or the density of trees, terrain, or outbuildings can interfere with the signal and cause dead spots. Also the broadcast from the system is in a circle, and although the radius of the circle can be controlled, the basic shape of the containment area can not be changed.

Why choose a Wireless Fence System? Ease of use and installation. Because it is easy to setup and use you are much more likely to use it than the buried wire products.

Information about Wireless Dog Fence Systems.

Electric Dog Fence

Each electric dog fence features a method of electronically transmitting a signal to a boundary, and a receiver collar to pick-up the signal. As your dog approaches the boundary he/she will receive a stimulation to warn not to go any further.

Electronic Dog Fences are a safe and humane way to keep your dog in your yard, or garden. The stimulation levels can vary, and some fences allow you to control the progression of the stimulation. Stimulation types range from vibration through beeping to a static shock.

Types Of Electronic Dog Fence

The are two types of electric fence, each with their own strengths and suitable applications:

  • Underground (Wired) Systems - a fencing system that transmits a signal through a physical wire
  • Wireless Fences - a wire-free system that is easy to install, but has more limitations
  • Check out underground dog fence reviews and dog fence systems can be purchased through the internet

Why Consider an Electric Dog Fence?

Electric Dog Fences are all about Dog Containment. We want Fido to stay where he should be at all times. He may be cute in your back garden playing with the kids, but not everybody loves dogs, and dogs on the loose can become a menace both to themselves and the neighborhood. Electric Dog Fences can be an effective and humane method for keeping your dog contained.

Dog Containment

There are many different ways to contain your dog and electric/electronic dog fences can be a great solution. They are not suitable for everyone in every situation and they are not panacea. The fencing system will work properly when you follow both the manufacturer's installation instructions and some basic guidelines on training your dog to respect the boundary.

Electric Dog Fences are designed to be used alongside a regimen of positive behavior reinforcement and should not be used in an aggressive way, and never, ever attempt to punish your dog into compliance.

Electronic Dog Fence

Electric Dog Fences when properly used are safe and effective, but they do have some pluses and minuses and are not suitable in every situation. Let's compare an electronic solution to a physical fence, such as a chain link, or wood fence when it comes to dog containment.
