What are the pros of this dog fence?
Pulsed tone stimulus
The closer your dog gets to reaching the established boundary, the more intense the shock will be to the dog. This will teach your dog to stay away from the established boundaries.
Progressive tone stimulus
A warning tone is issued prior to the shock if your dog continues to move closer and closer to the established boundary. This will teach your dog to recognize the warning tone and stop moving closer to the established boundary.
Variable field width control
Allows you to control the width of the signal field. Maybe your entire back yard is open to your dog, but you are having some work done in your back yard. Limit the range your dog can roa by using the variable field width control.
Audible and visual wire break indicators
If your wire ever breaks while in the ground, a loud alarm will sound and will be accompanied by a flashing light.
Speed detect and run through
The faster the dog is moving, the higher the level of intensity of the shock that will be delivered to your dog. If your dog is chasing a squirrel or rabbit from your yard and is running at a high rate of speed, the collar will act quickly to make sure your dog receives a shock at the appropriate time (before running through the invisible fence).
Built-in lightning protection
Protects the transmitter from power surges as the result of lightning strikes. This will save you headaches in repairs, as well as money in your wallet from not having to replace the transmitters.
Multiple collar operation
You can literally add as many collars as you'd like to this system. There is no limit on the number of collars the system can control. If you have three dogs, buy three collars. Also, considering buying an extra one to be used by the owner's of dogs who may come to visit for a mini-vacation.
Large area support
This system can provide coverage just over 1.2 acres, so there is no need to dwindle your yard and keep your dog confined into a very narrow or small space.
What are its cons?
Physical fencing keeps others out
Although a physical fence in your yard is much more costly, keep in mind that a wireless fence around your property will not keep other animals out. For instance, if you live where there are coyotes, fox, bobcat, or other predatory animals, your wireless fence will not keep them out of your yard and keep your dog safe from them.
Commitment to the process
Unlike using a traditional fence, you will have to be committed to walking your dog around the boundary, and working to train your dog where he can and cannot go. A traditional fence would mark the dog's boundaries without worrying he was going to get outside his boundaries.
It appears that this fencing system is one that is desirable since it is wireless and waterproof and it offers a great deal of control on the pet owner's part. Another awesome feature is that you can literally add any number of collars to the system. We would highly recommend further checking into this particular system before buying something else.
