The easiest way to keep your dog safe in your yard without having to go through the tedious job of installing a fence is to use an invisible fence system. There are a lot of different ones available and, believe it or not, they’re surprisingly diverse. We researched some of the best-rated, top-selling products and put together these invisible dog fence reviews to help you find the right one for you and your pup. Here are some key features to keep in mind:
Dog Weight: Most of these fit a wide range of breeds. If you have a toy breed, be very careful, though. The minimum weight is usually around 8 pounds and these might be too much for your tiny pup.
Range: We were surprised at how much the range varied from product to product. They range anywhere from 650 feet to 25 acres! Some allow you to set up a customized perimeter while others only transmit in a circular shape.
Waterproof: While most of these are water resistant and can tolerate a little rain and mud, there are some products that are truly waterproof. As in, your dog can actually go swimming wearing the collar and nothing would happen to it.
Type: Wireless systems are nice because you basically just turn them on, do some minimal set up, and you’re ready to go. Other systems usually have to have the wires installed underground but some allow you to place them above ground, too.
Pieces:- We included the transmitter, collars, remote controls, and any instructional material in this count of the pieces that are included in each kit. We also included the markers as one item, though you often get dozens of flags to mark the wire.
Warranty: Most of these invisible fences come with a 1 year warranty, though our top pick comes with 2 and there’s another item that’s only covered for 90 days. Make sure you know what’s covered under your warranty and what isn’t.
Now that we covered the key things to know, let’s move along into our indoor invisible dog fence reviews. If you don’t have a lot of time, check out our top and budget items first. They’re right at the top of the list so they’re easy to find and they give you a good idea of what’s available. All of these products are great, though, so stick around until the end if you can. All right, let’s get started!
