Some of the most advanced systems on the market are those that use GPS for superior wireless containment. GPS satellite technology allows for a fluid boundary that is easily customizable for properties that are large or unusually shaped. A ‘classic’ invisible fence will require you to bury physical cables to change the fence boundaries, but with a GPS-based system, you can alter the boundaries quickly through an app on your phone. Here are just a few of the benefits you can expect from an invisible fence system like this.
A Soft Touch
A GPS-based system integrates smart technology so that shocks are only used as a last resort to keep your dog from straying out of the safe zone. Many such systems will use a warning tone to remind your pooch to stay within the boundaries and will only provide a gentle reminder that won't cause them too much discomfort if they go too far.
Dogs have a lot more room to roam free in the country, but with this freedom comes more responsibility. Sadly, it is not abnormal for dogs to get hit by cars even out in the country where traffic is low. Because these invisible fence systems use GPS coordinates for boundaries they can be used for very large properties. A GPS-based wireless fence system can provide coverage for five-acre acres or more of the property. This makes these newer systems an excellent solution for farms and large estates in the country, keeping man’s best friend safe from this threat.
