One of the most popular choices in dog fences today are the invisible kind. They don't make your yard unattractive, installation is easier than traditional fences like chain link or wood and they can be less expensive. They will keep your pooch in the specified area relatively easy once your dog becomes accustomed to the boundaries.
You will have to decide whether or not you want to go with a wireless invisible fence or if you want to buy the in ground wired system. They both work great, but they have differences. If you have a pretty flat yard where the circular coverage of a wireless system can work well without signal interruption, then this might be the best choice. If your yard is oddly shaped or has hills or sloping in spots, then the in ground wired system will likely work better for you.
When it comes to the amount of coverage you get with either type of invisible fence, you will want to look at lot’s of options before you make a final decision. If you have a small dog, you must be sure the fence you choose is suitable for small dogs. If your dog is very large, you might need an invisible fence with more range or one that can be added to that is better for large canines. Either way, you will love an invisible dog fence!
