Im a dog trainer and am seriously disappointed by the topic of this episode and that it is still allowed to run on TV. Invisible fences are known to cause dog dog reactivity, fear, thunderstorm phobias and aggression in dogs. They are outlawing them in Europe for these exact reasons. What a shame to promote a product that causes psychological and physical damage to dogs. Have you ever seen the burns caused by a malfunctioning shock collar? Well I have and it aint pretty. I highly suggest ANYONE thinking installing one of these TORTURE devices consult a positive reinforcement trainer in their area.
How do you prevent other animals from entering your yard
That wav very informational. Thanks Ron.It's been a while bot used to love watching your show. Tim
PetSafe is not an installation company, it is a manufacturer, so this illustration was more for a do it yourself dog fence installation. Yes, a bit sloppy, but a good quick illustration of what it takes to put one in. I think the time estimate on using the trencher is a bit hopeful as well, I would expect actual trencher use time for 1000 feet of wire to be closer to a couple of hours plus time to and from the rental place, this includes loading up the wire, understanding how to use it and the inevitable issue or two while going around the yard, we usually tell customers to schedule 1/2 a day. I would also warn viewers that there is much more involved in training than shown if you want to be successful, see more at http://www.ezdogfences.com/pag....
Yes, the flags were not setup in a straight line and could have been a bit closer together and the trencher was a bit old, however, it was a good illustration of what is needed to install a dog fence yourself. PetSafe is actually a manufacturer and not an installer, so this was just to show you how the system can be installed. However, if Ron and his wife had hired a professional installation company, they would have paid at least $1500 and probably closer to $2500 depending on location to have the system installed.
By doing it yourself and renting a trencher and masonry saw, you can install one yourself for less than $400. We sell them at www.ezdogfences.com.
As for the commenter that wants Ron to fully enclose his yard with a fence, that may not be an option, some neighborhoods don't allow them.
it is absolutely uncalled for to have a political commercial before one of these videos.You've lost a fan! ! ! !
Please don't dig ANY depth with power equipment without first having utility lines located! It's free, and the cost of not doing so... well your dog may be at the funeral. 'Nuf said?
I think it is crap...you move dogs from a stinking 22nd floor apt. and they finally get to enjoy being dogs! Then, instead of building a fence they get the joy of beingshocked into submission! Shame on you... build a damn fence and take off theshock collars. Boo to you and your wife on caring for your dogs.
