Electric Dog Fences
Wireless, underground fences lead the pack in pet containment systems
Even the smallest dogs love to run and play outdoors, but giving your furry family members room to stretch their legs can be dangerous without a safe, contained space. A standard fence may be your first inclination, but those have so many disadvantages. They are costly, and they change the landscape of your lawn.
Additionally, some neighborhoods have restrictions regarding fences that make the most expensive varieties your only options, and it’s not exactly easy to install traditional fencing yourself. An underground dog fence, on the other hand, keeps your view unobstructed and guarantees that you’ll stay on the right side of your neighborhood association.
Underground dog fences are also far less restrictive than traditional fencing. You can surrounded your entire front and back yard, or only allow your dogs access to a specific area, but you don’t have to worry about creating odd-looking spaces. This means you can give your four-legged friends the maximum space available to run, play fetch or roll in the grass, but your electric dog fence still allows you to protect gardens and other sensitive areas from canine interference.
An electric dog fence also keeps your pets safer. Small dogs can squeeze through some fences, and big dogs can jump over all but the tallest, but an electronic dog fence solves those issues, making it a pet containment system that works for every family, even if yours includes both a little lap dog and a big, boisterous hound.
