Hidden Fence vs. Traditional Fencing


If you want to keep your dog in your yard and out of harm’s way, you might be wondering if a hidden fence or a traditional fence would be a better option. Here are some advantages of a hidden fence.

Easier to Install

The process of installing a hidden fence is much simpler than putting up a physical barrier. That’s particularly true if you have a large yard or if your property has hills.

An invisible fence can be customized to suit your needs and preferences. For instance, maybe you want to give your dog a lot of room to run and play, but you also want to keep it out of your garden or away from your driveway or pool. With a hidden fence, you’ll be able to customize the boundary without the hassles that you would face if you wanted to put up a physical barrier.

Easier to Maintain

A hidden fence requires less maintenance than a traditional fence. A physical barrier can get damaged by weather, or your dog might jump on it or chew through a section. You might have to repair the fence or repaint it regularly to maintain its appearance.

With a hidden fence, you won’t have to worry about any of that. Since the boundary wire is underground, your dog and the weather won’t be able to damage it.

Won’t Block Your View

If you live in an area with beautiful scenery, a physical fence can block your view. An invisible fence won’t.

A hidden fence can also allow you to see what’s going on in your neighborhood. You’ll be able to keep an eye on your kids when they go to a neighbor’s house and see if someone is approaching your home.

No Need to Worry about a Gate

A fence with a gate can be a hassle, especially if you need to open it while you’re carrying things. If you or a member of your family forgets to lock the gate, your dog can escape from the yard, wander off, and possibly get injured. You won’t have any of those concerns with a hidden fence because there’s no gate to deal with.
