has anyone tried the portable electric dog fences?

Question by Future Cat Lady: has anyone tried the portable electric dog fences?
How well do they work? Have you tried the version that you install by yourself?

Best answer:

Answer by Nedra E
A lady in one of my Pyr Yahoo groups has used it and she likes it a lot. How well they work may depend on your dog’s or animal’s breed that you’re enclosing.

If it’s a version that requires hiring an installer, then I wouldn’t really call it a portable electric fence. I only define something as portable if YOU can move it. -!-

Dog Fences Move Up the List of Holiday Home Improvements

Dog Fences Move Up the List of Holiday Home Improvements











Kennesaw, GA (PRWEB) November 25, 2007

If you are planning to get a new puppy as a gift for your family this holiday season, preparing for your new arrival is very important. First Fence of Georgia (1stfence.com), a leading north Georgia fence installation company, has some words of advice for anyone planning to adopt a new dog.

“The holidays are exciting, especially when a dog joins the family,” says First Fence of Georgia president, J.C. Ordono. “Securing your yard with a fence is one of the most important steps you can take to safeguard your children and your new companion.”

What should you do first? Call a professional fence installation company. They are going to be your best resource. Have them come to your home to provide you with an estimate and their recommendations for the most appropriate fence type for the dog you are going to get. Depending on the company’s work schedule, a fence installation project can take several weeks from the time you approve the estimate until final installation. Give yourself plenty of lead time so your fence will be in place when your new dog arrives.

Physical fences work well for most dogs because they do not require a training period like an electric dog fence. Without extensive training there is a risk of your dog running through an invisible perimeter while chasing another animal, a toy or a child. In addition, an electric dog fence may keep your trained dog within your property, but it does nothing to keep other dogs or children away from your pet.

Is the breed known for jumping, climbing or digging under fences? If so, take the fencing material and configuration into consideration. Dogs that jump may require a taller fence. “Climbers” are less likely to get a foothold on a flat fencing material like wood. Height is also a consideration. If your dog can get his front paws on the top of the fence, there is a good chance he can pull himself up and over the fence. Dogs that like to dig require a fence that is secured well at the base and perhaps designed to deter digging.

Is the breed better in a totally enclosed area where they can’t see neighbors, animals, or moving cars? In this case, a wood privacy fence is a very good choice. On the other hand, if your dog needs to be in a physically secured yard but does not require a total visual block, picket fences, spaced privacy fences, or decorative metal styles are all good options.

Question by kwalkey: “What can a new homeowner do to fight a Home Owner’s Association against wood fences, what precedent’s?
“What can a new homeowner do to fight a Home Owner’s Association against wood fences, if the sales agent gave the buyer originally that the neighborhood was open to wood fences?”
Me and my wife were basically sold on the fact we could get a wood fence, for our two large dogs, and now we are being told we cannot. The sales agent told us we could when we decided to build the home? Any help?

Best answer:

Answer by Kakoii90
You probably have no recourse against either the agent or the homeowner’s association. You agreed to the rules when you bought the house and it was your responsibility to read and understand them before doing so.
You could possibly try to sue your agent for knowingly making false statements but it will be very hard to prove.
Why not get some kind of fence that your association will aprove of or an invisible fence?

Havahart Wireless Offers a Glimpse into the Science Behind New Wireless Electric Dog Fences

Havahart Wireless Offers a Glimpse into the Science Behind New Wireless Electric Dog Fences













Lititz, PA (Vocus/PRWEB) February 28, 2011

Pin-point dog locating, fence-recording and the visualization of your wireless fence boundary on your PC were all made possible through the enhancement of the nanoLOC TRX 2.4 GHz transceiver chip. This chip was originally designed for tracking expensive mobile hospital equipment and child loss prevention. Using NASA data filtering technology and some of its own complex math, Havahart® Wireless pushed the nanoLOC TRX to a higher level of performance, paving the way for the creation of patented wireless dog fencing systems that far surpass the industry standard.

NASA filtering technology and a boost in strength to each of the bases allows each signal to better penetrate through walls and other material objects to communicate with the wireless collar. Using its own complex math, Havahart Wireless developed and meticulously honed time-of-flight tracking technology. That means the distance to the dog’s collar is determined constantly through communication back and forth with the fence’s bases or controller at the speed of light. The non-stop communication and real-time distance to the dog tracking enables each wireless electric dog fence system to determine whether to deliver a correction or tone based on the dog’s proximity to the fence.

It all began with the Radial-Shape Havahart Wireless Dog Fence. This is the world’s first wireless electric dog fence system to offer a circular dog containment zone of up to 11 acres with a display that enables the dog owner to actually interact with the system. The digital display allows the dog owner to set the precise radial distance of his dog fence and wirelessly program the correction level of up to 2 collars. The system tells the dog owner how far away his dog is, and alerts him if his dog has breached the boundary or if the collar batteries are low.

With the cutting-edge technology fully developed for use in the Radial-Shape Wireless Dog Fence, Havahart Wireless took things to the next level with Custom-Shape Wireless Dog Fence. A remote control, 3 more bases and a wireless fence tracker—an internet accessible installation tool for viewing the location of your wireless electric dog fence on a PC, were added.

The remote control allows for a process called “event stamp mapping.” Once the system’s four base units are positioned in the four corners of the home, the dog owner can create virtually any shape of wireless electric fence. The size of the wireless dog fence can range from less than one half acre up to 25 acres. By walking the desired fence boundary with the touch-screen controller in hand, event stamp mapping records the coordinates of the path the user walks and relays them to the master base, creating the wireless electric dog fence. The fence boundary can be changed anytime through the same process, and exclusion zones can be added to keep dogs out of swimming pools, large gardens or any other area inside the wireless electric fence boundary.

With the 4 bases in constant communication with the wireless electric dog collar, the Custom-Shape Wireless Dog Fence is able to pinpoint the dog’s actual location in the yard using a process known as “trilateration.” Radio signals emanate from each base in a spherical manner. 1 common point of intersection among the radio signals from 3 bases enables the wireless fence system to accurately pinpoint the real-time location of the dog collar. The intersection of the 3 spherical radio signals is called trilateration. The wireless electric dog fence system uses trilateration to determine whether the dog collar is inside or outside the fence boundary. Should the dog ever breach the wireless electric fence boundary, he will not get corrected on the way back in because the system knows his location.

The wireless fence tracker is another feature that can be utilized by only the Custom-Shape Havahart Wireless Dog Fence. Using patented software, the wireless fence tracker allows the dog owner to view the wireless electric fence through a high-speed internet connection on a Windows-based computer. It is a valuable installation tool that can also aid in troubleshooting.

“Havahart Wireless Dog Fences are the result of asking one simple question: How should a wireless fence really work?” stated Rian Sweeney, Category Development Associate for Havahart Wireless’s parent company Woodstream Corp. “Answering this question led us to the next generation in wireless electric dog fencing.”
