Invisible Fence® Brand Questions
Is the Invisible Fence® Brand Computer Collar® waterproof?
Yes, with an Invisible Fence® Brand Power Cap® battery in place, the Computer Collar® is waterproof and can be submersed in water up to 10 feet. If the nylon collar strap becomes wet, it is recommended that it be removed from your pet and be allowed to air dry before replacing the collar on your pet’s neck.
Do you know where your boundary wire is?
As you plan your springtime projects or need to mark the location of your underground wire for landscaping, utility work or other digging, Invisible Fence by StayDog can help. The wire, which is typically buried several inches deep, can still be cut by a wayward shovel or spike. An Invisible Fence by StayDog professional can quickly and easily mark your yard with flag markers to avoid any breaks in system integrity.
How does Winter affect my pet fence?
With winter approaching, please take time to check the fit of your dog's collar. Most dogs (and some people too) put on a few extra pounds in the winter months. Some dogs will also grow a thicker coat to prepare them for the colder temperatures. Both of these can make the collar too tight and possibly cause your dog's neck to become irritated. To check the fit of your dog's collar, you should be able to fit one finger between one of the collar's posts and your pet's skin. If one finger won't fit, the collar is too tight. If you can fit more than one finger, the collar is too loose.
What about snow piles?
Snow piles from shoveling sidewalks or driveways may impact the performance of your pet containment system. To maintain optimal performance of your system, we recommend that you not pile the snow on your boundary line. This can create an exit path for your dog if the snow is piled higher than your signal field. In most cases your system is set to activate at least six to eight feet from the line — both width and height. If the snow pile is higher than the signal field set, you may have to shovel off some of that snow to keep ensure your containment collar is still being activated by the signal field.
