With an electric dog fence from eDog, you can contain your dog to a specific area of your property safely and effectively. While some pet owners think that using a static collar on your dog is harmful, the reality is these units have different settings of correction, including an audible beep, vibration, or static charge. It has been demonstrated that these collars are an effective tool for correcting undesirable behaviours from your dog. Dogs consider the static charge experience to be annoying.
Electric dog fences use collars that detect radio signals from fence transmitters. When your dog approaches the fence line, an audible signal will be emitted from the collar. If your dog continues moving closer to the fence, then a static signal is delivered (if selected on the transmitter unit) until your dog retreats to the safe area you designate.
After setting up the electric dog fence, you must take the time to train your dog. You can walk your dog near the boundary line of flags, and when you hear the audible warning from the collar, take a step back and call your dog, get them to sit, and then provide a treat. In a few training sessions, your dog will understand that an audible signal indicates that they need to step back.
You can mark out the electric dog fence with the flags provided, and this will give you and your dog a visual representation of the fence line. If you need to allow your dog to cross over the fence, you can turn the system off or remove the collar. Removing the collar combined with a spoken command is the best method, as this provides your dog with a clear indication that they can roam free.
