Our Frequently Asked Questions
How long will the equipment last?"
Most of our customers use their equipment without
any problems for years. Designed with dogs in mind,
the equipment (transmitter, transformer, and
receiver) is all solid-state construction and will
endure years of normal wear and tear. If repairs are
needed, they can be made quickly at no cost.
2. "Who is best qualified to train my pet?"
Animal Behaviorists feel very strongly that the
owner(s) should train their pets, since the animal
is most comfortable and relaxed with members living
in the same house. Also, the liability to the
homeowner is limited, in the event that the dog
bites the company's trainer during a training
3. "Will the training be difficult for me?"
The training is easy, but very essential. By
following the simple daily sound conditioning
exercise as instructed (and as outlined in our
Handbook), you can train nearly any dog.
4. "Does the correction hurt the dog?"
The Freedom Fence system is approved by SPCA's,
humane societies and veterinarians nationwide, as a
safe and humane solution to the everyday challenges
of dog ownership. More than 1,000,000 dogs of all
breeds, sizes, and ages have come to stand behind
proven pet containment systems such as Freedom
5. "Does the correction cause behavior problems ?
No, Freedom Fence conditioning techniques were
developed with the aid of top veterinarians and dog
behaviorists to ensure the system is safe. In fact,
Freedom Fence owners tell us that their dogs seem
happier and healthier on the Freedom Fence system.
With the full run of the yard, the dogs are getting
more exercise and more quality time with their
6. "What does the correction feel like?"
The Freedom Fence system is not an electric fence.
The receiver-collar emits a mild correction no
stronger than a common household static charge. The
correction is harmless, but one that the pet cannot
7. "Is the radio wire safe to put in yards with
Yes! The wire carries a radio signal-not an electric
current. Therefore, it is not harmful to children.
The wire is designed to last many years underground
and will not break by itself.
8. "Does the Freedom Fence system interfere with
radios, TVs, garage, door openers, heart pacemakers
or other pet containment systems?"
The Freedom Fence system is backed by years of
technological development. It has been designed to
avoid these problems by using a pulsed radio signal
that prevents interference with other electronic
9. "Does this product encourage dogs to go to the
bathroom on their own properties?"
When pet owners take responsibility for containing
their dogs on their own property, they must also
take responsibility for their pet's complete care.
Dogs can easily be trained to go in one area of a
10. "Can the Freedom Fence system confine dogs to a
small area of a property?"
Yes, because the Freedom Fence system is a
conditioning system, dogs can be trained to
recognize any boundaries regardless of size. Dogs,
like people, can learn to adapt to limited
surroundings: however, we do recommend that pet
owners provide a reasonable amount of room for
sufficient play and exercise.
11. "Will the Freedom Fence system keep other dogs
out of a "protected property""?
The Freedom Fence system is not designed for that
purpose. Although we cannot guarantee that other
dogs will stay away from yards with the Freedom
Fence system, we believe each pet owner should take
responsibility for his/her dogs.
12. "Is the Freedom Fence system less expensive than
Yes. Depending on the type of conventional fencing,
the approximate cost savings can range anywhere from
50% to 75%.
13. "How can the Freedom Fence system change a dog's
behavior after many years?"
The Freedom Fence system is not typical behavior
training; it is proven classical conditioning that
any dog will learn. The Freedom Fence system is
successful with over 98% of dogs. The Freedom Fence
system conditioning techniques were developed with
the aid of top veterinarians and dog behaviorists to
guarantee that the system is effective for dogs of
every breed, size and age.
14. "Can the Freedom Fence receiver-collar be
removed after the training sinks in?"
No, pet conditioning requires reinforcement. After
removing the collar, the pet may stay contained, but
may eventually challenge the Freedom Fence
boundaries. To maintain this conditioning, we
require keeping the receiver-collar on whenever the
pet needs to be contained.
