A word about invisible fences for dogs

There are two kinds of electric fence, the old kind that is a sensor wire buried around the perimeter of your yard, and the other newer model has a signal transmitted from the center point.

Those are nice because you don’t have to bury a wire.

Even better because you can take it to the beach or your rental, stick it in the ground and the dog already recognizes that there is a “range“ that it can explore before his collar begins to beep.

And, there is no wire to jump over and run away from, the dog gets a correction whenever it is out of range, which ostensibly, would be whenever he is out of the yard.

If there was a problem, it might be that his range is 360° in a huge circle. LOL he can’t use the corners of his yard LOL
