Unless you want Fido running around all over the neighborhood, you’re probably going to need a fence to keep him close to home. When choosing fencing for dogs, the debate between traditional fences and invisible fences often comes up. So, which is better for your dog?
While invisible fences have their benefits, they also have several flaws. One big flaw is that these fences are more difficult to adjust to the perimeter of your yard, especially if its perimeter is uneven. The line of an invisible fence is essentially the circumference of a circle around a central point. The radius of this circle can’t change, so the distance which the fence covers is equal in all parts of your lawn. A traditional fence on the other hand, can easily adapt to the perimeter of your lawn.
Another problem with invisible fences is that while they may keep your dog in, they let other animals in as well. When other dogs see your dog in the yard, they might be tempted to come over and investigate. Many dogs are friendly, but others might be up to trouble, in which case a traditional fence is the only way to keep them out. A secondary benefit of a traditional fence is that it protects your grass and gardens from being eaten by deer and other animals who may come passing through.
A final issue with invisible fences is that they don’t always keep dogs contained. A determined dog might just shrug off the shock as he chases a squirrel out of the yard. A traditional fence will keep Fido in, and other dogs and animals out.
