The electric dog fence system is a very effective containment system which can prevent the dog from escaping. This containment system basically consists of a 400 to 1200 ft long wire (which has to be buried), a transmitter (which can be placed in any part of the home) and a receiver (which has to be placed on the dog’s collar). The receiver sends a sound and a shock when the dog tries to come near the wire. There are several advantages of using an electric dog fence and some of these are discussed in the following lines:
• These containment systems are cheaper than installing the vinyl, wooden or metal dog fences. The major expenses are done just one time which involve purchasing the system kit rather than negotiating per foot charges with the installer. The price can vary according to the brand but all proficient brands do not charge more than 400 dollars.
• Another pro is that the wire has to be buried and this feature can be used to bypass any property which might restrict the physical fence. Moreover, the fence cannot be jumped over by the dog and there isn’t any weak spot which can be dug to escape.
• The electric dog fence is much more flexible and isn’t restricted in keeping the dog from running out from the perimeter of the land. The wires can be installed inside the house and the transmitter can be placed in the garden, bedroom, near the pool, garage or any other place preferred by the owner.
