Wireless Fence


Recommended Posts

You need to check county ordinances- I believe they are still not permissible in Paulding.

How can they not be permissible,my neighbor has one. Maybe you can't leave your dog in your yard all day,but if I want to put one in I will.

"Fenced enclosure means an enclosure made of wire, wood, stone or other materials which is of sufficient height and strength to act as a barrier against the passage of the animal it is intended to enclose. An “invisible fence” is not an acceptable fenced enclosure for an animal."

 

Violators of this chapter (Chapter 14: Animals) shall be punished through a system of fines as follows:

• 1st violation resulting in a conviction or guilty plea or nolo contendere plea: $300.00 fine.

• 2nd violation resulting in a conviction or guilty plea or nolo contendere plea: $500.00 fine.

• 3rd and all subsequent violation(s) resulting in a conviction or guilty plea or nolo contendere plea: $1,000.00 fine.

No fence is necessarily required, as a leash is not necessarily required. There are less restrictive ordinances but certain conditions must be able to be met. Just need to make sure you are in compliance and make sure you have a copy of the law, so when the Marshall shows up you remain within the limits of the law.

We had one for my lab. No problems with it but my dog realized he could run straight across it. If you got a large dog is make sure they are responsive to shocks before spending a lot on it.

Hubby had one for the Jack Russell when she was a puppy. There were no wires to bury in the ground. You put the collar on the dog and the transmitter stayed in the house and had a radius up to 90' so you'd set the transmitter nearer to the front or back door depending on which yard the dog used. You put flags near the edge of the perimeter and walk that with your dog on a leash. If the dog went beyond the flags to the edge of the perimeter it'd give a little poke. After a few days the dog would associate the flags with "do not pass" and stay in the boundary lines. The dog got to the point where he'd take the collar off and she'd still stay inside those flags, then he even took the flags out of the ground and she just stayed in the yard. Sadly, we had to put our Jack Russell down this weekend, not related to the fence, just old age and rapidly declining health.

Regulation on needing the fence from the referenced code.

S

 

Sec. 14-12. Confinement of animals.
It shall be the duty of any animal owner to ensure an animal is under
control of its owner and to prevent the animal from having access to
the property of another person.
An animal may leave the property of
the animal owner, but the animal owner must have the animal under
control and must prevent the animal from having access to the property
of another person without the permission of that person, or from
attacking, threatening or harassing other persons, or from damaging
other persons' property. No animal shall be allowed to roam free and
when not on the property of its owner must be on a leash, or similar
physical control device,and in the control of a person.
Any owner of a domestic animal will confine that animal inside a building
or fenced enclosure. No animal shall be tied as a permanent measure of
restraint, nor left unattended on a chain, lead, runner, cable, rope,
leash, or similar tethering device in an unfenced area where people or
other animals can wander into the tethered animal’s proximity.
Any animal
owner restraining an animal without the use of a fenced enclosure will be
in violation of this chapter. Animals who are tied on a chain, lead,
runner, cable, rope, leash or other similar tethering device as a temporary
measure of restraint within a building or fenced enclosure shall not be
tethered more than 12 hours in any 24-hour period.
Any owner of a female animal in heat (capable to be bred and become pregnant)
shall confine such animal in a building or secure enclosure (sufficient to
prevent the female animal in heat from escaping and to prevent another
animal from entering the enclosure) to prevent breeding. Any female animal
in heat roaming loose or tethered without the protection of a fence or
barrier will be in violation of this chapter. Persons who permit their
animals to defecate on public or private property other than their own
property are required to immediately pick up the feces, bag the feces,
and properly dispose of the feces. Such animal waste shall be removed by
placing said matter in a closed or sealed container and thereafter
disposing of it in the animal owner’s or public trash receptacle, sanitary
disposal unit or other closed or sealed refuse container.

A wireless fence provides no protection for your pet from other animals as it does not prevent them from entering your property.

They have them all over in my sub, that is what the HOA prefers you have....Now we have coyotes running wild in my sub. I know they can jump fences but I feel a little better knowing I have a fence unlike my next door neighbor. I'm not in Paulding so I guess it is OK in my county.
