Unlike most other pets, dogs are quite playful and naturally active, which is why we love them so much. This can land them into trouble as they play outside, especially when left unsupervised for some time.
Dogs love going beyond the boundaries you have set within your yard, and dog owners know that they can meet with other problems such as attacks from unfamiliar dogs, injuries, or accidents from vehicles.
The solution to keeping your dog safe and happy, while giving you peace of mind, is a wireless dog fence. But how do you select the best wireless dog fence system for you?
Here are some factors to keep in mind when looking for a suitable one:
- Size, shape and landscape of your property
- Metal blocks such as doors and other metal items that can affect radio waves
- Boundary wobble, as radio wave ranges vary
- Minimum weight and age of your dog – these systems aren’t meant for puppies under 6 months
- Dog breed – some learn fast while others are super sensitive
- Number of dogs, as some systems only allow for two
- Collar weight based on dog size, as well as batteries for the collars
- Protection against power surges
- Your budget
This is more than just your average dog fence because not only does it keep your dog within reasonable boundaries in a protective space, but it is also instant, easy to install, and its portable.
