Wireless Dog Fence Reviews
Wireless dog fences operate by means of radio waves that are sent out from a mobile transmitter. Your dog wears a collar that can pick up the radio waves. If he leaves the boundary area he will receive a static shock to remind him to stay within the boundaries.
The advantages to this system is that the unit is mobile so you can use it in your backyard or move it to any place on your property. You can take it with you on your vacation if you are taking your dog. If you have an RV, you can set the unit it so your dog can have a yard and be contained. You can take it and your dog with you to the beach. You can take the wireless dog fence with you if you and your dog go camping. It’s very convenient to use.
There are some disadvantages to using the wireless dog fence. They are not as reliable as an underground dog fence. Since they operate on radio waves instead of using an underground cable, any obstacles that get in the way of the radio waves, especially metal objects, can disrupt the signal. The boundaries provided by the wireless system are not as precise as those given with the underground system, so your dog may be confused about where the exact boundaries are. The system can be slow to give corrections. This means that your dog may get a correction after he has already left the boundary area, which can be confusing for a dog.
What Is The Best Wireless Dog Fence?
The best wireless dog fence(s) are generally acknowledged to be the Havahart Wireless fences. They come in two versions, the Havahart Wireless Radial and the Havahart Wireless Custom. Both versions get good ratings from customers. They are considered to be “Good” when it comes to reliability, though underground fences can be better. They also have rechargeable batteries, which will save you money. Both systems offer five different correction levels, so you can make the corrections your dog receives very mild, or h3er. Neither system has a battery back-up, so if the battery goes out your dog may walk away from your yard. This is a concern.
The Havahart Wireless Radial costs about $349.95 and can cover up to 11 acres; while the Havahart Wireless Custom costs about $799.95 and can cover up to 25 acres and you can customize your boundaries.
There are other wireless dog fences but they typically cover much smaller areas and they are much less reliable than the Havahart systems.
Remember that none of the wireless fences are as reliable as the underground fences but if you are looking for convenience and you want a fence that you can take with you wherever you go, the Havahart wireless systems are the best around.
All invisible fences, including wireless fences and underground fences, are only as good as the training your dog receives, so be sure to follow the training instructions to teach your dog to understand what the warning tones mean and to respect the boundary area.
