Best Electric Dog Fences and Invisible Dog Containment Systems for 2018

When temperatures begin to rise wildlife becomes more active; we see more squirrels and bunnies get busy having babies. If you are a dog owner and your pup is nothing more than a sneaky escape artist this means additional work, extra stress and endless hours of chasing and searching for your pup.

When it comes to containing dogs physical fences are the ideal solution but not all of us have the economic capacity or circumstances that facilitate proper fencing for a large or stubborn dog. Fencing one acre with a six foot fence can cost upwards of $30,000 dollars.  Steel and aluminum are more expensive and wood is constantly on the rise.  Electric perimeter fences are the most cost effective solution and the quickest and most practical to implement. Let’s take a look at the best electric dog fences for 2018 as evaluated by our dog fencing experts
