5 Best Pet Containment Options
When you bring a new dog home an important consideration is how you will keep your pet contained in your house and yard. There may be certain areas indoors that you wish to keep your pet away from, such as the room with all-white upholstery, or you may be seeking a way to keep your pet in the yard without having to spend the time or effort building a privacy fence. Five of the best pet containment options are discussed here.
A dog run is a fenced in area of your yard that safely contains your pets, even ones that are known escape artists. With a variety of sizes and heights available (even those with roofs overhead), there is certainly a style that is appropriate for your pet. Two major benefits are easy installation and lack of training required in order to use this pet containment system. Five of the best pet containment options are discussed here.
An invisible fence is comprised of fence wire that is buried 4 – 6’’ underground that transmits a continuous radio signal. An unlimited number of dogs can be contained with this system, so long as they each wear a radio receiver on their collars. When the dog nears the property boundary a beep or vibration will emit from the collar, followed by an electronic shock if the dog continues towards the fencing wire. This system is ideal for owners with large
A wireless fence works on the same principles as the invisible fence, except that instead of burying wire underground a radio transmitter is plugged into an outlet and a radio barrier is emitted in an adjustable area. Like the invisible fence, the dog wears a radio transmitter collar and receives a warning before the shock. This option is great for dog owners that travel with their pets or want a convenient solution without the hassle of burying fencing wire.
For indoor pet containment, a dog gate can be a great solution for keeping pets out of unwanted areas. Many gates can be adjusted to fit any size door frame or height. Unlike a baby gate which is often easily knocked over by persistent pets, a dog gate is created with durability in mind to keep even the most stubborn dogs from entering areas they don’t belong.
Indoor Wireless Gate
A second solution to keeping your pet in or out of a single room is to set up a wireless barrier. Similar to the wireless or invisible fence, a radio signal is generated that induces a shock to a dog that is wearing the proper radio receiver collar. This method is great for high traffic areas that you do not want blocked off.
