Understanding What Dog Fence Systems Are
How the Electric Dog Fence Came About
Because of his love for dogs, Richard Peck of Philadelphia invented the invisible dog fence to keep dogs away from trouble and from being killed or injured along the road. He first worked with an electronic engineer doing trial and error until they successfully launched the first ever electric dog fence.
The system has a dog collar, a transmitter, and wire which will be placed around the area you want the dog to stay in. If the dog will attempt to leave the boundary fence where the wire is placed, the collar will give him an electric sting. Because of this extra feeling it will give to your dog, Mr. Peck further studied if there will be negative side effects to the dog health and the study returned a negative result thereby prompting him to continue marketing the product.
Today, other companies adopted the idea and came up with their own designs and concepts of the invisible dog fence system. Let us take a look at one of the companies selling this product on Amazon and read what users are saying about it.

Dogs Love the Collar
For some breed, they will not respect the system as if the electric shock is nothing to them but with proper training, they will soon stay inside the boundary. It has a 5 level programmed shock depending on your pet’s needs and the distance around the boundary. The wider the boundary is, the higher the level you will set but also depends on how your pet will react to it. Also, it gives your dog more freedom to play in the yard than using a chain.
