Good Swimming Dog Fence Collars

by Gajan Retnasaba on November 18, 2009

Which electric dog fence system has good collars for dogs that like to swim?  What dog fences have good waterproofing?

For dogs that love to swim (we are talking about you Labrador Retrievers, Golden Retrievers, Chesapeake Bay Retrievers, Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever … or any other breed with Retriever in the name), having a pond or pool where they can paddle away is great for the dogs, if not the person that has to clean the floors.  Infact almost any dog likes to cool their paws in the pool during the summer heat.  But, what kind of electric dog fence system should you use, so that the dog collars don’t get ruined by the water.

Generally, look for a waterproof collar with as few buttons as possible and with good seals on all the seams.

The top choices are the Innotek IUC-4100/5100 and SportDog SDF-100.  The two Innoteks are a good choice because they have no buttons at all and an integrated battery, so there are no real openings at all.  The SportDog has really good waterproofing on it’s two openings.

Avoid anything that just says it is water resistant.  These collars don’t stand up well to full immersion, and are designed for just the occasional sprinkle.

Stay dry.
