Many fences in contemporary yards function as decoration rather than effective barriers. A recent trend in lawn design is choosing not to use any kind of fence to create a more open, inviting space. However, this style is a problem for homeowners who have pets since there is no barrier keeping the animal in the yard.

Here is where an invisible fence comes in. A system is set up that creates an invisible barrier along the perimeter of a yard. Electrical signals are emitted that react with a device attached to a dog's collar. If the pet tries to leave the yard, an electric impulse mildly shocks the animal, startling it. The stimulus is usually preceded by beeping and, over time, the pet learns to respect the beeping to avoid the shock.

Invisible fences are reliable and adaptable and don't interefere with your yard's aesthetics. There are some drawbacks to consider before installation including the fact that pets can still escape if they are truly frightened or see something they want to chase. They may be willing to ignore the electric stimulus. There is also less protection and privacy for your home and an invisible fence doesn't prevent other dogs and animals from entering.

If an invisible fence is something you're considering, contact a local installer to explore your options. Enter your zip code and HomeAdvisor will connect you with invisible fence installers near you.
