The Havahart Wireless Radial-Shape 2 Wireless Fence dog containment system is a practical alternative to a wired dog containment system. This wireless fence has the largest containment area of any wireless fence on the market, creating a boundary from 40 – 400 feet in diameter and it can cover up to 11 acres with boundary break alerts, keeping your dog safe within their boundary.
How The Havahart Dog Fence Works
The system can contain up to 2 dogs within your set boundary. The collars that you put onto the dogs communicate with the controller and registers how far from the controller they have gone. If your dogs go out of the contained area you have set for them, the controller tells the collar to create a tone or a pulse to get your dog to take corrective action. This particular system has a wider than normal trigger system to help to keep your dog within its allocated containment area more successfully. Sounds quite exciting, right?
The Pros of the Havahart Wireless Radial 2 Fence
By using a larger trigger zone, this provides more time for a correction to be issued and gives your dog more opportunity to return to within your set boundary. With it having no wires to bury, this makes it quick and easy to set up, with most being up and running within an hour of opening the box. It’s easily portable for when you go away with your dog and need to contain them within an area. You can set different sized containment areas for each dog and, for your dog’s safety, it has a built in 30 second time out feature.
Cons of the Havahart Wireless Fence
Because of how the Havahart’s Wireless Dog Fence works, it isnt compatible with all types of property. For example, if your containment area is either wooded, sloping, narrow or next to a road, this would not be suitable to use. This is because when you set your boundary, it could mean that your contained area will reach further than you want it to, for example, your neighbour’s garden or onto the main road, where it isnt safe for your dog. It’s also not a quick fix to stop your dog from roaming. You need to train your dogs to recognize that the tone or pulse means that they have gone out of their contained area, and that they need to come back into it. Because of this, whether it works for your dogs will depend on you investing your time into training them properly and how your dog responds to the training you give them.
Overall, if you spend the time and effort training your dogs to recognize what the correction is and what it means for them, this can be a successful form of containment for them. Since it has no wires, there is no digging involved when you set it up. It’s easily readable LCD screen makes it really easy to install and it’s easily transportable for use if you take your dog to visit some friends or go camping as well.
