Pros of A Wireless Dog Fence

Some of the pros of a wireless dog fence might be:

  • The set up and installation time is very quick – usually only 1-2 hours
  • The set up cost is usually less, especially if you have to hire a mini trench digger or a professional to install your wire perimeter boundary on an in ground system
  • The system is usually portable – you can plug it in, unplug it and move it from location to location
  • You can use a wireless system at home, or take it away camping for example – as long as you have a power source to plug into
  • You don’t have to dig up your lawn or property or worry about rocks or services in the ground (NOTE: you can also install an in ground system above ground with the wire, but most people decide to bury it)

Cons of A Wireless Dog Fence

Some of the cons of a wireless dog fence might be:

  • They usually aren’t as consistent, reliable, accurate or effective as an in ground system
  • There signal and connection from the wireless transmitter can be interfered with by metal, trees, solid objects like a wall or house etc.
  • There isn’t as wide a range of wireless dog fences available as there is for in ground fences
  • Wireless fences can only have a circle boundary – they can’t have square, rectangle or custom boundary shapes like in ground fences can have
  • Unless you buy a heap of transmitters which is expensive, the area a wireless dog fence system can cover is usually much less than an in ground system
  • Wireless dog fences usually don’t have as many of the features or as many of the high end features that in ground fences have such as vibrate only mode for example
