Most of you who know me and read my Gun and target shooting blogs know I love my dog. But let me tell you a story about a product I now use and what promoted me to take this action. Many of you will find this amusing but at the time it wasn’t really to funny. So I come home from work a couple of days after Christmas finding I had forgotten to lock the dog in the back room, paper and trash are all over the house, apparently Rufus got into the Christmas papers and decided to have some fun. So I go over to the Christmas tree and apparently Rufus decided it would make a nice Urinal, so yellow pee covered the entire area around the tree, he also went to the bathroom on my new AR-15 Case.
As a pet owner, you find it hard to contain your pets most of the time. You often look for ways to prevent your pets from wandering around areas where they are not allowed, most especially in the kitchen where you prepare your food. However, your pet needs to have some physical activities to promote mental stimulation and to avoid possible health problems. Your pet needs to roam around every once in a while, especially of it is a dog. If your dog will not be able to play and run around, she will be prone to sickness such as obesity, depression and poor disposition. Therefore, it is necessary that your pet experiences outdoor freedom more often.
However, there are conditions that may prevent your furry friend from enjoying outdoor freedom. Weather conditions and pet owner’s schedule are some of these.

Nowadays, most if not all pet owners take advantage of a relatively recent invention, the electronic fencing system. You just need to set up a transmitter and a receiver attached to the collar your dog wears. It is also easy to establish with a do-it-yourself set up, you just have to set boundaries where your pet is allowed or not. Once your pet approaches the boundary you have chosen, she will receive a warning tone through the receiver attached to the collar.
If your pet continues to move towards the boundary and pass through it, the collar will then emit a mild shock. This will teach your pet to stay in areas where she is allowed to. Nevertheless, it will create a secure feeling for you and not worry that you may cause discomfort to your pet. Once your pet hears the warning tone, she will recall the boundaries and stop from wandering around, thus avoiding the mild shock.
