Electronic Pet Fence Systems
Dog Guard® is an electronic dog fencing system that is installed underground by burying a single wire as a complete loop along the entire perimeter of your property. This underground boundary can also include or exclude certain portions of your yard, such as a pool or garden. Your dog is safely contained within your yard and allowed to roam free with sections of your yard blocked to keep your garden and landscaping safe. Your dog can even be trained to stay out of your pool! Dogs live to run free, and keeping your dog safe in your yard gives you both the freedom to relax when you are outside.
How Dog Fences Work
First, a transmitter is installed in a convenient location, such as the garage or basement. Then, the wire loop is placed underground. The transmitter sends a harmless radio signal through the wire, which is picked up by the small receiver on the dog’s collar. When the dog nears the wire, the receiver in the pet’s collar picks up the signal and gives off the owner’s choice of an audible warning or mild correction.
Dog Fence Training
Dog Guard knows “A well-trained Dog is a Happy Dog!” and that good fences make good neighbors, a non-visible electronic dog fence can provide both!
The boundary is marked off with flags, creating a visible boundary line for the pet. For two weeks, the dog owner should spend fifteen minutes, twice daily, exercising the dog around the flag boundary. If the dog moves toward the flags, he should be told “NO!” The dog should then be moved away from the flags and given lots of praise. By using this technique, the dog will quickly learn where the boundary is located. Later, once the dog becomes familiar with the visible boundary, the flags can be removed. Remember, praise and repetition are the keys to success!
