The reality is that extended duration corrections are not necessary to contain most dogs. A stronger correction that your pet respects and is conditioned to avoid is the BEST and most humane approach.
Since the very beginning in the 1970’s when Invisible Fence® Brand fencing was introduced, it has never required more than 2 seconds of correction to stop the most stubborn of breed. The idea of the “endless” boundary by shocking your dog for 10 seconds is purely a marketing scheme that was introduced by our competitor in the early 2000’s, when Boundaries Plus®was introduced by Invisible Fence®Brand.
Also, it is very important to note that any dog that has endured a 10 second correction while trying to leave the yard will never try to leave the yard again. This fact alone completely nullifies the idea or need for a “Free pass” back into the yard.
The dangers of systems that continuously shock are far more likely to occur such as the accidental infliction of this to your pet if you forget to take the collar off your dog when leaving in your car as you back out of your driveway. Not only will your beloved pet experience this horror due to your unintentional mistake but you will be subject to a very dangerous distracted driving situation due to the chaos and confusion resulting from this.
Another significant hazard from these systems can occur if the polarity gets changed when your fence line is repaired and the yard becomes “hot” rather the outside the boundary without you being aware of this. You likely will not even understand what has happened when your pet experiences the intense discomfort from this error.
