Indoor Dog Fence Solutions

A funny thing happened in our house almost 10 years ago; my husband got me a wonderful birthday surprise, a Jack Russell Terrier.  I had never had a dog in my life, so I had a lot to learn.  The first trouble we had with Gator was him going to the bathroom on our living room carpet.  It didn’t take me long to realize that once he did that, he was quick to go back to the same area and do his business all the time.

We decided that he needed to stay out of the living room.  We bought the widest baby gate we could find.  Unfortunately, our house had tall shoe molding which left the gate about 5 inches off the ground.  It didn’t take long for Gator to realize he could squeeze under the gate, do his business on the carpet, and squeeze back over to the other side!

The decision was made to place cardboard on the gate to keep Gator from squeezing under.  That did work, temporarily.  Gator realized that he could jump.  So instead of squeezing under the gate, he would hop over the gate, do his business, and hop over the other side.  I appreciated his tenacity, but it was enough already!

It was then that we decided to use an indoor dog fence.  Did you know that there are indoor dog fences that work in conjunction with your outdoor electric dog fence?  Your dog wears the same collar (in most cases) and if he gets too close to the unit, he gets a warning tone and if he goes further he gets a static correction.

It didn’t take long at all to set up our indoor dog fence.  We simply plugged in the unit, adjusted how close we wanted the dog to go, set up a few training flags and we were set.  The process was easy, and training was a breeze. 

The best part of the indoor dog fence was being able to get rid of the baby gate and cardboard.  The indoor dog fence was cheaper than the gate, and much more pleasing to the eye.  If your dog is getting into rooms you’d rather not have him in, the indoor electric dog fence is for you!
