The Invisible Pet Fence
Dogs and cats are a bit like kids, telling them they can’t do something or go somewhere just doesn’t seem to work. So how do you solve the problem of restricting your pet to animal friendly rooms?
Traditionally you’d have to put gates or barriers up to restrict your dogs movements. But dogs (and more so cats) are sneaky and can jump over or squeeze under many an obstacle, so the obstacles end up becoming more of a human inconvenience than animal deterrent. But there is an answer with the Invisible Indoor Pet Fence!
The Invisible Indoor Pet Fence works by placing a special collar on your dog’s neck. You then locate the supplied transmitters anywhere you don’t want your dog to stray. If the dog does stray it’s collar will emit a short warning sound followed by a non-harmful electric stimulus (sounds more like a electric shock to me). This does remind me of the collars prisoners had to wear in “The Running Man” and we know what happened to the.
I’m still unsure whether to call this a cool gadget or animal torture device, but if you fancy giving it a try (on your dog not your kids )then the invisible pet fence is available from Hammacher for $129.95.
