How to Know if the Collar is the Right Fit

When deciding if you are going to use a Perimeter collar with an Invisible Fence, it’s important to know some safety details before continuing to ensure your dog doesn’t develop any health issues. 

When it comes to your dog wearing any type of collar, they can develop a condition called pressure necrosis from having constant pressure on their neck.

Here are some ways to prevent this.

  • Take the collar off every day to give the neck skin a rest.
  • Stop using it if you start to notice irritation on your dog’s neck.
  • Make sure the prongs are never tight enough to dig into your dog’s skin.

Remember that any type of invisible fence relies on fully training your dog to stay inside the safe area.

There is no physical barrier to keep your dog home.

Final Thoughts

If you have an Invisible Fence make sure you double-check model numbers to make sure the collar you want to buy will pair with the fence.

As long as it’s compatible it will work the same as your original collar to remind your dog to stay in the safety of the yard.
