Does the Containment Fence Work In Snow?

Does a pet containment fence with with snow?  Can I use a dog fence with snow?  How do I winterize my electric dog fence?

dog_fence_snowThe dog fence works fine in snow with a few adjustments.  As the snow levels build up you want to turn up the dial on the control box that sets the boundary width.  This is because as the snow starts to accumulate, the dog will be walking higher and higher over the boundary wire, so to compensate we need to turn up the signal so it get up above the snow.  Once the snow starts to melt away in early spring, you will need to turn the boundary width back down again to the normal setting.

The boundary wire does not seem to care about the snow and operates just fine.  The snow does not damage the boundary wire.  (although if you elected not to bury the boundary wire that crosses your driveway, a snow plow may take it out)

Note that the northern winter months are not a great time to install your system underground.  The frozen ground can be very difficult to dig even using the recommended trencher wire burial method.  But, you can always staple the wire to the ground or to a fence until the warmer months arrive.
