    Can Your Pet Benefit From An Invisible Fence?


    You have saved up for the home of your dreams and you have finally been able to close on the house. You have everything you wanted including that wonderful garden you have always dreamed of. However, when the next day you go see your garden, you notice that many of the flowers have been damaged or unrooted. It makes you freak out, because the day before it was ok. You then turn around to see the family dog greet you and cover you with the same mud that his paws are covered with. It's maybe time to invest in an invisible fence.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of An Invisible Fence

    Most times people buy an invisible fence when they have a very playful and active dog. By nature, dogs like to roam, explore and chase after things. That's when an invisible fence can be helpful. The fence will limit the dog to an area so that it doesn't destroy flowers or gardens by accident. When your dog tries to cross the boundaries you've set for it, it'll recieve a small "punishment," which will prevent it from trying again.

    This "punishment" consists of a small static shock that is meant to surprise the dog. You might have heard of experiments where they train animals to modify or learn certain behavior patterns by a reward and punishment system. In this case, the punishment is the above mentioned static shock.

    The shock is usually transmitted through a dog collar. The intensity of the shock should be adjusted by the owner so that it's not so strong that it hurts the dog or is painful for it, but not so mild that the dog can just ignore it (dogs have a much ticker skin than humans and much bigger resistance to pain). Owners of dogs should be extremely careful to not have the setting so high where it might seem as if the dog is being abused.

    An invisible fence is a good idea to keep your dog within a fixed area without altering your property. Your dog will not be able to destroy gardens or other things in your garden. In addition, an invisible fence will protect your dog from running towards guests or running cars.
