How Much Does An Invisible Dog Fence Cost?
If you have a dog, and your yard is rather big, or large, you’re going to find that many dogs out there love to run away, when you get the chance. What you’re going to find out is that it’s going to get rather old to get out, leash up your dog and wait until they do their business, or do their exercise. Honestly, who wants to do this at 3 in the morning each day?
Thankfully for technology today, you can get an fence installed with your yard that isn’t visible, where you can keep your dog in your yard, when they wear a collar. What the fence will do is send out a warning signal when the dog gets close to the fence. If the dog gets too close, the collar will send a slight shock to the dog. While many people find this inhumane, it has been proven to work. Generally, a smart dog can learn this technique rather quick, and will more than likely stay in your yard.
Now, if you’re looking to get one installed, or you want to do it yourself, I wanted to show you how much you should budget, when you want to get one done for your yard.
Listed below are usually the factors that you have to consider, when you’re looking at getting a fence installed:
The brand – Each brand is going to have it’s own price tag. There are a few out there, so make sure to do your research before you go out and purchase one.
The size of your yard – The bigger your yard is, the more work that the installer is going to have to do, as well as install. Take a look at where you’re going to want to install your fence. Are there going to be any obstacles in the way at all?
Pro vs DIY – If you do it yourself, you can easily save 50%, or even more. If you go with an installation based company, they are going to charge you, based on whatever their rates are.
Generally, if you’re going to do it yourself, you’re going to find that you’re going to have to pay around.40 to.80 per foot, when it comes to your wire. This is why measuring is important. You will more than likely find that you will have to pay someone around $30+ a hour just to install the fence. While each yard is different, it’s hard to get quote, but if you factor around $2+ per foot for installation, this should give you a fairly good idea.
