1.2 million dogs are hit by cars
1.2 million dogs are killed on the roads each year in the United States. Many of these dogs were wearing shock collars at the time, but their invisible electronic fence did not save them. When your dog sees a cat, rabbit, or someone it recognizes and wants to play with, an electronic fence won’t stop him. Your dog will dart—pain in the neck or no.
This is why many veterinarians advise dog owners not to use invisible underground fencing for dog confinement because it simply does not work.
So, how do we help stop these easily preventable deaths?
Simple. You need to get a REAL physical fence that is designed to keep your dog in your yard.
