Are you in the market for a fencing system for your dog? More and more people are purchasing electronic fencing systems, rather than visual fences in order to keep their pets safe. Consider the High Tech Pet Humane Contain HC-8000 to keep your dog in your yard and out of your neighbors' yards and away from busy streets.
Do the customers like this product?
Nearly all customers who purchase the High Tech Pet Humane Contain HC-8000 indicated the collars are very bulky and there is a definite problem with the batteries. Some also indicated you can buy 12 packs of these rechargeable batteries, indicating there really is a problem with this feature.
What are the pros of this dog fence?
The system automatically adjusts the intensity of the shock, based on the dog’s distance from the boundary. This will teach your dog to stay within the boundary without overstimulation.This feature is praised by the Humane Society for the humane treatment of animals because most systems just shock your dog when it gets too close to the boundary.
Progressive audible tones are used to reinforce the stimulus, resulting in easier training when you begin using the system. Your dog will learn to recognize the audible tones and retreat prior to reaching the boundary where the shock will be administered.This means your dog will not just be shocked as soon as he is too close to the line. Instead, the audible tones act as a signal to alert your dog that he is getting too close.
The waterproof transmitter uses digitally coded signals to eliminate false triggers at the collar. The transmitter also has a built-in battery.
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.The system also includes an illuminated control panel which can be mounted indoors or outdoors.It is waterproof.
Optional Add-Ons are Available
The system includes the transmitter, collar, 500-feet of wire, 50 flags, 10 wire connectors, an AC adapter, mounting hardware and 1 collar battery.Also available is a rechargeable back-up battery so you can be sure your system operates in the event of power outages.Lastly, additional wire can be purchased in order to increase the size of your field, up to 30 acres.
What are its cons?
Although you would expect the battery life to last longer than 30 minutes to an hour, there seems to be a problem. Many people who bought the fence indicated they bought extra batteries to be sure their dogs were always safe; however, they have to be changed a lot.
It appears that this fencing system is one that is desirable; however, when people actually get the system in place, they are disappointed with the rechargeable battery performance. When researching this system, there is no indication if you can add additional collars, other than customer reviews where people indicate they have three dogs, two dogs, etc. The cost of this system is in line with other similar systems; however, the battery problem makes you wonder if your pet will remain safe, or if a battery will need to be recharged more often than not.
