3 Factors to Consider Before Purchasing an Invisible Fence, Newtown, Connecticut

If you're a dog owner looking for a safe and effective way to contain your pet, consider installing an invisible fence in your yard; they provide a pet-friendly, practical solution for almost any size yard and many dog breeds. The pet containment system experts at Invisible Fence of Newtown, serving residents of Connecticut, explain some important considerations before installing your invisible fence.

Before you purchase a fence, consider these three facts about using one in your yard:

It’s Not a Solution for Tiny Dog Breeds 

Invisible fences are not an ideal option if you have a small dog weighing less than five pounds. It can be difficult to find a collar small and light enough that fits around their neck and delivers a correction level appropriate for their size.

Collars Require Maintenance 

invisible-fenceThe containment collar receives a digitally encoded signal from the fence; it does not work correctly if the batteries are not charged. The batteries in the collar last anywhere from two to six months before they need to be replaced. If the collar has rechargeable batteries, they typically last two to three weeks before they need to be recharged.

Fences Need Reliable Electricity 

Your invisible fence will only transmit signals to your dog's collar if it is receiving electricity. If your home tends to lose power frequently, you may want to connect your invisible fence to a backup power source or your dog may cross the boundaries of the fence.

The pet containment system team at Invisible Fence of Newtown provide humane, highly recommended fencing solutions at affordable prices.
