The cost of having a fence put in on your property can run into hundreds and even thousands of dollars depending on the size of the area you want enclosed. That's a lot of money to spend just to make sure your dog stays in your own yard. But, if you are a dog owner, you know they can not be allowed to roam around free. They can be annoying to your neighbors, they can get stolen easily or they can get killed in the road. You can pen them up, put them on a chain or you can spend endless amounts of your life constantly walking them.
A better solution that can be just as cost effective is having an invisible fence installed on your property. Now, the cost overall will ultimately be determined by how small or large of an area you want to cover. Smaller dogs need less space to roam than bigger dogs, so you must keep that in mind when you are choosing an invisible fence.
The second thing about choosing which invisible fence to go with is do you want an underground wired fence or had you rather go with the wireless option? By visiting Doggy Bakery, I found tons of useful information that helped me decide. If you choose an underground wire system, you can have it installed or you might even opt to install it yourself if you are able to. The installation is a big part of the cost and it can run into hundreds of dollars while self installation is free except for your time.
