An invisible fence to keep your dog in a visible haven
As much as we love our pets, the truth is that animals are a real handful sometimes. At what point did you realize that your dog is not Lassie and will not come running to you as soon as you call his or her name? The truth is that dogs are often not like their Hollywood counterpets (yes, you read that right).
If you are having trouble getting your pet dog to listen, technology is here to save the day once again with a great way to keep him from running out of your backyard first chance he gets.
What you need is an invisible fence, a boundary that over two million pet owners have used to keep their dogs from running away. The invisible fence is not a particularly new piece of technology, it has been around since the 70s and has earned a rather high rate of satisfied users these last few decades.
Invisible fences are safe and humane and designed not to trap or hurt your pet, but to keep him within the confines of your home and away from the dangers outside, such as fast cars or other animals. The way it works is that the professionals come and wire the invisible fence around your home and then you give your dog a collar with a signal that communicates with the invisible boundary. When your dog gets too close to the boundary, a warning sound is emitted and deters him from venturing onward. No shocking, no pain.
Where some of us struggle to keep dogs in, others struggle to keep them out. Having a dog in your backyard can lead to unwanted attention from other dogs that might come barking at your fence looking for a fight. A dog ultrasonic repeller comes in handy here, keeping dogs and other unwanted animals away with a high-pitched frequency.
Although it can get hectic at times, being a dog owner is fun, rewarding, and certainly worth a little bit of hassle.
