What to consider when you are looking for a dog fence for a large dog

When you decide to secure your property to keep your large dog safe and secure you will have to consider a few key criteria when deciding what type of dog fence to get. 

  • Budget
  • Type of pet / dog you have
  • Ease of installation and set up
  • Correction level

As you are probably aware fencing the entire perimeter of your property regardless of the size can run into thousands very quickly, an Electronic dog fence or Dog run is far more cost-effective, and far less labour intensive than installing a traditional fence or wall.

Electronic Dog Fences

An electronic dog fence, sometimes also referred to as an invisible fence is a copper wire boundary fence that is placed underground, a couple of inches below the surface.

This creates an electrically charged boundary that keeps your pet within the confines of your property without the need for a physical fence. Your pet is connected to the electronic dog fence by a collar it wears around its neck.

How the Electronic collar dog fence works may vary between each fence system, the StayFence Pet Containment System for example, works by first issuing the dog with an auditory warning when the dog nears the boundary, The pet containment system will issue 3 levels of mild correction, which intensify slightly as the dog nears the boundary. There are several options of pet containment available, check out all available Fence systems here.
