For pet parents, keeping dogs safe is top of the list. Electronic dog fences can help to establish a safe zone where your dog can roam freely and safely. They are devices that contain a transponder that sends an audio alert or static warning to your dog’s when he gets too close to the border you’ve established. Training your dog to stay within the boundaries with electronic dog fences is the perfect solution if you live near a busy road or don’t want your dog wandering onto neighboring properties.

How Do Electronic Fences Work?

An electronic fences system contains two parts: the transmitter and the receiver. The transmitter connected to the wiring is able to emit a signal that travels throughout the underground wire and the receiver is worn on a collar by your dog and detects the signal from the transmitter.

As your dog comes too close to the electric fence perimeter, which makes the receiver approaches the buried wire, he will hear a warning sound. Your dog should know that it’s time to turn around. But if your dog ignores the warning and continues to approach or crosses the boundary, his collar will deliver a mild electric stimulation. This is a mild, harmless electric stimulation that is designed to only get the dog’s attention. It reminds your dog that there is somewhere he shouldn’t go to and encourages him to retreat back and stay within specific boundaries.

To train your dog, you should first walk with your dog to the training flags, let him listen to the signal, and then turn away immediately. Repeat this process until your dog can turn around on its own and walk back to the perimeter.

Advantages of Electronic Dog Fences


Electronic fences are almost invisible. You don’t have to set up traditional fencing that may interfere with your scenic view or break up green spaces created by open property lines. Also, your family members can move around freely without hassles.


Although some electronic fence systems can be expensive, they are much cheaper than the cost of materials (wood, iron) and installation (labor) for traditional fencing. Many electronic fence systems range in cost from $120 to $400, while traditional fences can cost thousands of dollars to install.


Electronic fences can be installed more quickly and easily than conventional fencing. Consumers can install the system themselves. Some companies even provide certified fence installers on request.
