Which electric pet fence system is right for my dog?
In a nutshell, the price of electric fence for dogs varies from $200 to $400 or more.
Once your pet seems to have mastered tone correction, we’ll set your dog’s collar to emanate a mild electric shock for the next phase of training. You’ll be expected to walk your dog on a leash around the boundaries again, but when your dog crosses them, it will feel an electric correction instead of hearing a tone. It’s important to reward a retreat into the safe zone with high praise, as your pet will need to know, on no uncertain terms, that the area beyond the fence is off-limits for it.
For about two or three days, we suggest that you walk your dog on a leash around the perimeter. During this time frame, we’ll have your dog’s receiver on its set to sound a warning tone when it accesses an out-of-bounds area. When it walks too close to the fence and the tone becomes audible, you should verbally correct your dog and offer encouragement when it returns to the safe side of the electric fence. Vermont dog owners typically continue on this course for about three days.

At first blush it seems like a great idea for any dog. An electric fence costs hundreds instead of thousands of dollars like an actual fence would, and doesn’t mar the landscape. It allows a dog to explore the world outside without your being there to make sure he doesn’t run into the road and get killed by a car, attack passers-by, or get into scrapes with other dogs. Other benefits: an electric fence does not obstruct a dog’s view in any way, can be placed easily around even hilly, rocky, or terraced terrain, and does not need a nod from next-door neighbors or have to pass muster with any local regulatory boards who set standards for fence height and placement.Electric fences for dogs are the ideal solution to keeping pets in and unwanted critters out. The Zareba Above Ground Electric Fence Kit for Pets and Small Animals delivers a mild correction to break bad habits. Protects flowers, shrubbery, gardens and trash from unwanted critters. This kit is for dogs from 15 lbs and above. We do not recommend electric fencing for any dog under 15 lb. or under 6 months old. Invisible fences are effective most of the time. Some pet owners opt for an electric fence because other alternatives have failed to keep their dog inside (the dog either climbs over or digs under a traditional fence). In most cases, dogs quickly learn to stay within the boundary line to avoid the warning signal and subsequent shock.So given all this information, what is the best way to contain your dog on your property? Traditional fences are a thousand times better than underground invisible electrical fences, however they are not designed to keep dogs from out of their enclosure. Not only are they ineffective, but they are . Our most popular product, a , sells for $1,299 but the materials for a traditional wood fence would cost you well over $6,500. (Note both prices include materials only). A chain link fence is less expensive. The materials to put up a chain link fence over the same property would run you roughly $2,250. Additionally, chain link fences are like ladders to dogs and other predators. Most dogs can easily climb a traditional chain link fence. Our hybrid dog fence is strong and flexible. This flexibility is part of what makes climbing our fence virtually impossible from either side. The fence also feels like a net that dogs and other animals can’t climb it.
