Electric Dog Fences - How Do They Work?
The electric dog fence is also known as a dog containment system, hidden fence, invisible dog fence and in-ground dog fence. They are all designed to keep your dog safely on your property through a containment system consisting of a transmitter, collar and wire. The transmitter sends a radio signal through the wire back to the transmitter. Your dog wears a collar that responds to the radio signal, when your dog gets too close to the dog fence the collar gives a warning tone. If your dog ignores the tone and continues towards the boundary, the dog fence collar will give a static correction.
