The 5 Benefits of an Invisible Dog Fence for Your Puppy

Has your dog ever tried to escape from your yard? Even the best-behaved dogs struggle to resist chasing a squirrel or rabbit. If you’re worried about your dog fleeing from your home, you might benefit from an invisible dog fence.
Also known as a smart dog fence, this electronic containment system prevents your dog from crossing a certain boundary. So, how do these fences work? Many systems use underground wires buried throughout your yard. When your dog approaches the wires, a signal is emitted to the collar that discourages it from moving further.

Modern fence versions can achieve the same effect without any wires. Instead, they use GPS devices to keep your dog within a certain area. No matter which version you use, the end result is the same: improved safety, more freedom and reduced bad behaviors. Not to mention, wireless fences are more aesthetically pleasing and cost-effective than physical fences. Let’s take a closer look at the benefits of invisible dog fences and where you can find one for your home.

1. Safety and Security

The biggest benefit of an invisible dog fence is improved safety and security. One nightmare for dog owners is a beloved pet escaping the safety of their home and getting lost in the outside world. Those with multiple dogs have to worry about several pets at once, which can get stressful.

Unfortunately, dogs aren’t aware of the dangers lurking outdoors. If you have an especially energetic puppy, you know how difficult it is to stop it from chasing an animal. While you may not be able to communicate these concerns, you can keep your furry friend safe by installing an invisible dog fence.

Once you have a wireless fence, you can rest easier knowing your dog won’t leave your home unexpectedly. This is especially useful for owners of small dogs that are more vulnerable to outdoor dangers (such as vehicles or predators).

2. More Freedom and Exercise

There’s nothing dogs enjoy more than playtime. Whether it’s with fellow canines, its human family or all by itself, every dog appreciates a chance to stretch its legs and run around.

Of course, most of us don’t feel comfortable letting our dogs roam around outside. Some dog owners get around this issue by building physical fences in their backyards. However, there’s no guarantee your puppy won’t escape the fence (or that someone won’t open it). Some homeowners may only have front yards, which can’t always support a physical fence.

Fortunately, a wireless containment system offers all the freedom and exercise a dog could hope for. Once the system is in place, you can safely leave your dog outside for hours at a time. It’ll be happy to soak in the fresh air and run around, and you’ll be relieved knowing your pet won’t go past your yard.

3. Reduced Digging and Chewing

Does your dog enjoy digging up the earth or chewing on random plants and objects? While some chewing and digging is normal, it can be a problem when done excessively. All it takes is a few minutes for your dog to destroy your prized garden or plants.

These behaviors wreak havoc on your yard and can harm your pet. For example, if your dog ingests certain plants, it may develop health issues such as stomach bugs or infections.

In addition to protecting your puppy from leaving the home, a GPS dog fence can stop it from eating or digging up your vegetation. If you have dense plants or shrubbery around your yard, all you have to do is install the fence in front of these plants. Whenever your dog tries to get near the plants, it’ll receive the signal and retreat.

4. Aesthetically Pleasing

When thinking of ways to prevent a dog from leaving the home, most people’s minds jump to physical fences. While a physical fence can be an effective solution, it’s not very aesthetically pleasing.

For starters, fences consume space and can make your yard feel smaller. If you install a fence in your front yard, your home might come off as secluded and unwelcoming. Fences also separate you from the surrounding houses (which you may not want if you’re close with your neighbors). Finally, if you’ve surrounded the perimeter of your yard with plants and vegetation, you may need to get rid of landscape elements to install the fence.

Wireless dog fences, on the other hand, are not overtly noticeable. As the name indicates, they’re invisible — no one can tell there’s a boundary protecting your pet. Ultimately, they let you enjoy the benefits of a physical fence without negatively affecting the appearance of your yard or home.

5. Cost-Effective

A common concern when it comes to invisible fencing is cost. However, invisible dog fences are often more cost-effective than traditional physical fences. This is due to the following reasons:

  • Fewer materials
  • Less labor to install
  • Less time-consuming to install
  • Increased flexibility

Unlike a physical fence, wireless fences don’t need expensive materials like wood or iron. Furthermore, they require less manual labor and are less time-consuming to install.

It’s also worth mentioning that wireless dog fences are far more flexible than physical versions. In other words, they don’t need to be adapted for each individual dog. For example, if you have a small puppy, you might need to add wiring below a physical fence to stop it from crawling out underneath. If you have a large dog, you might need an especially tall fence to prevent it from jumping over. GPS fences, meanwhile, work for every dog, meaning you don’t have to worry about any costly add-ons.
