What Is so Special About Invisible Fences for Dogs?

As of September 2015, the Invisible Fence brand containment system has been in use for over 40 years and has kept more than two million dogs and cats safely in their yards with a 99.5-percent success rate. Invisible Fence is the brand most recommended by veterinarians. The company's patented technology, Boundary Plus, allows pets to use 30 percent more yard space than traditional pet containment systems and allows pet owners to create separate and shared areas for multiple-pet households.

Trained Invisible Fence technicians work with pet owners to install custom layouts of underground perimeter cable to meet their unique needs. Pets are trained to stay within a property and be deterred from sensitive areas within the yard such as pools or landscaping. A computer collar on the pet provides a gentle shock if it strays beyond the boundary.

Invisible Fence also provides a four-step training program with certified trainers, called Personalized Expertise Training, or PET. The PET program is personalized to find the right settings for each pet. Each trainer is certified to evaluate a pet’s personality and temperament, make adjustments to the collar, practice with the pet to establish safe areas in and around the property, and affirm that the training was successful.
