Invisible Electric Fence Installers Near You

Wireless Invisible Fence Installation In Your Area

Many fences in contemporary yards function as decoration rather than effective barriers. A recent trend in lawn design is choosing not to use any kind of fence to create a more open, inviting space. However, this style is a problem for homeowners who have pets since there is no barrier keeping the animal in the yard.

Here is where an invisible fence comes in. A system is set up that creates an invisible barrier along the perimeter of a yard. Electrical signals are emitted that react with a device attached to a dog's collar. If the pet tries to leave the yard, an electric impulse mildly shocks the animal, startling it. The stimulus is usually preceded by beeping and, over time, the pet learns to respect the beeping to avoid the shock.

Invisible fences are reliable and adaptable and don't interefere with your yard's aesthetics. There are some drawbacks to consider before installation including the fact that pets can still escape if they are truly frightened or see something they want to chase. They may be willing to ignore the electric stimulus. There is also less protection and privacy for your home and an invisible fence doesn't prevent other dogs and animals from entering.

If an invisible fence is something you're considering, contact a local installer to explore your options. Enter your zip code and HomeAdvisor will connect you with invisible fence installers near you.


"We are so happy that we went with Hidden Fence. Mike was very professional and honest. I actually was planning to buy some additions and he talked me out of it. That showed me that he had wasn't in to up sale me, but to get me the best at the best price. Thanks Mike. They were great at following up and did have to come back and make a few adjustments because my stubborn dog would get out. After they spent about an half hour working with Duke (my dog), no more breakouts! Duke loves the freedom now and will stay outside for hours with no issues getting outside of the fence. It was a pleasure working with them and their follow up to make sure we were happy and the fence was working says a lot about their company. Easy to give 5 stars! "
