Imagine keeping a dog contained within your garden and having no physical walls to do it with. It may seem a little strange, maybe even a little low on the probability stakes but it is all possible.
There are some very revolutionary ideas and innovations that have been developed to keep dogs in their yards without the use of physical barriers such as walls and fences.
- Outdoor Radio Fences these radio fences are set up by positioning a boundary wire which is laid around the perimeter of your yard. Other types require positioning of fixed width poles at strategic points in your garden.
Your dog is fitted with a specialised collar which emits a beep when they come close to the boundary and a harmless electronic pulse stimulus if it tries to cross the perimeter.
- Indoor Radio Fences these systems work on a similar principle to the Outdoor versions except that they have a transmitter rather than boundary wire. These are great if you want to keep your pet out of certain rooms in your house.
- Citronella Collars this is exactly the same as the other two systems with the only difference being that the dog wears a different collar. Instead of the electronic stimulus that results when your dog proceeds past the boundary this collar emits a spray of harmless citronella.
There are a few options and it all comes down to what you think will work best for your pet.
