REGALWISE SHEPHERDS

I do require a fenced yard to qualify for adopting a puppy.  Invisible fencing will qualify, but if you haven't had one before, you should know that there are serious drawbacks with it. 
  • It will not keep other dogs, cats, wildlife, or unwanted people out of your yard. 
  • When/if your dog comes in season, you would have all the male dogs in your neighborhood in your yard trying to breed her.  
  • Some dogs with a strong prey drive or a high pain tolerance will run through an invisible fence when in pursuit. 
  • People who are unaware that you have a dog may come onto your property and be bitten by your dog who was startled by an intruder and is protecting her territory.

 

YARD CONTAINMENT SYSTEMS

 We have seen a tremendous increase in the use of electronic "hidden" fences during the past few years -- and for good reasons. First of all, they are very effective in keeping pets contained in a yard, yet they give your pet freedom to roam and the opportunity to get the exercise it needs. Secondly, these electronic fences are virtually invisible so they do not disrupt the look of your lawn.

There are essentially two types of systems to choose from: traditional buried wire fences or the newer wireless fences that use radio waves to differentiate "stay zones" from "forbidden zones."

Both work essentially the same: After training your pet on its boundaries, your dog will receive a warning beep from his electronic collar should he approach the limit of his safe zone. If he continues toward the forbidden zone, he will receive a mild correction from the collar. Most units also offer "run-through" prevention which increases the stimulus if he continues toward the forbidden zone. With proper training, most pets learn the boundaries very quickly and never proceed past the point where they hear the warning beep.

Probably the biggest difference between the units is the extra convenience the wireless systems provide since there are no wires to bury and they install in minutes. Plus, they're portable so you can take them with you when you travel.

Hidden fences have prevented injury and saved the lives of literally thousands of dogs. Plus, they are convenient for you and give your pet the freedom to enjoy the outdoors. 

There are drawbacks to this type of fencing. It does not keep people, wildlife or other dogs from coming onto your property.
