An electric dog fence is an invisible boundary that restricts a dog within a perimeter using mild electric shock. It is made up of a wired or wireless electric fence installed around the perimeter and a receiver placed in the dog's collar. The receiver sends out a warning beep whenever the dog comes close to the boundary. When the dog gets too close, the fence transmits a mild shock. The electric dog fence is an alternative to a regular dog fence that prevents a dog from jumping over, digging under, or chewing on the fence. Since it is invisible, it can solve the problem of erecting fences not suitable for the landscape design of a house. It can also be used for keeping a dog away from certain areas such as the pool or the garden.
