Is Electric Pet Fence Wire Dangerous to Humans?

584-062414Electric pet fences have high success rates for pet owners who take time to train their pets with correctly selected and installed fences. The training may vary depending on the pet, pet owner and what you are training your pet to do. Most of these electric fences feature a boundary wire that gives an unpleasant mild static correction when crossed by your pet. The pet avoids the correction even though it totally humane, harmless and safe.

Quality fences are typically harmless. They will not harm anyone who walks across them, buy you can get a static correction by holding the pet collar between your fingers while walking across boundary line. You can prevent this by ensuring the fence system has a warning boundary or signal field area that you can adjust easily. The signal field controls the distance between the boundary wires beyond which the collar gives a warning beep.

On the other hand, low quality electric fences are not safe for use by the pet owner and his pet. They pose too many behavioral, physical and legal risks to your dog. Their static correction causes more harm which is typically invisible but reduces the life span.
