Hear what our customers are saying about the Dog Fence DIY difference:
Our lovely puppy, Billie Holiday, wanted to roam the whole neighborhood, causing us to worry, not to mention neighbors worrying and complaining as well. We live on 1 1/2 acres which is mostly wooded in a dog-friendly neighborhood with very little vehicle traffic. Still, it was not fun to get telephone calls from neighbors a mile away telling me they had our dog. We had a zip line for quite awhile but this was very boring for her and she was not getting the exercise she needed. We finally decided to bite the bullet and invest in some kind of invisible fence. The day that we did most of the installation, Billie, on her zip line paid close attention to what we were doing and was very curious about the white flags and our mysterious work around the perimeter of our property. We only buried the wire where there would be foot traffic. In the woods we felt the litter would soon cover any sign of wire and along the rail fence there was no problem just putting it in line with the fence. We followed the training methods but it was if she already knew there was something about those flags that looked suspicious. The first time she got too close and got zapped was the last time. Immediately she identified those flags with being shocked and we spent more time training her to go across any of the perimeter when we wanted to take her for a walk on a leash than we did training her to respect her boundaries. Now she is such a happy, relaxed dog. She knows her boundaries and plays outside with sticks and toys, and us whenever we are outside. She has had neighbor dogs come in and when they leave she just sits at a safe distance and watches them leave. We have had a huge problem with deer. Today we had taken Billie into town with us in the truck and when we got home she immediately saw a deer in her territory. She left the truck running full bore, chasing the deer away and skidding to a stop just in time to not get shocked. I have plants that were being munched practically to the ground. Now that Billie is free within her boundaries the deer are staying away form our property. It was money well spent!!
