PETA field tested our non-electric dog fence kit and loved it! We shipped PETA a 5 foot dog fence kit with a gate. PETA found a family that had two dogs that were living on a leash. Like PETA, Pet Playgrounds believes all dogs deserve to run free so we were ecstatic that our dog fencing system was going to be used to improve the life of two wonderful dogs. Scroll down to check out the pics of PETA installing and testing our unique DIY dog fence system for these two wonderful dogs. 

 

PETA loved our product, and has now included us in their PETA Business Friends Program. We couldn’t be happier. In fact, we are ecstatic. Why? Because the authority on humane treatment for animals has professed their love for our product. Our product is the most affordable and most effective way of letting your dog run free as well as well as protecting your dog from running away and being attacked from other predators (like coyotes, or other stray dogs).

Pet Playgrounds is the FIRST dog fence company to accept Bitcoin.

Pet Playgrounds now accepts bitcoin!Pet Playgrounds is the first online retailer of DIY non-electric dog fence kits to embrace bitcoin, accepting payments in the digital currency here in the U.S. and now in Canada. Anyone in the US or Canada can now use the digital currency to purchase a DIY dog fence kit. An option that was never available before today. Many questions hover over the future of bitcoin, a new type of money overseen by software running on across a vast network of machines. It’s still unclear how the governments of the world will regulate use of the currency. But it continues to evolve, and Pet Playgrounds has decided to jump in. Pet Playgrounds has partnered with BitPay to collect and convert all funds directly into US dollars at the time of purchase.  Accepting credit card payments is rather expensive, due to steep fees from third-party processors. Pet Playgrounds still pays BitPay to handle these transactions, but these fees are significantly lower even without accepting bitcoins directly. 

So why has Pet Playgrounds decided to accept bitcoin? The potential to harness the technology that lies at the heart of the Bitcoin system, a public ledger called a block chain, is a totally new way of thinking about transactions. It keeps records that are decentralized and keeps users semi-anonymous while making their transactions public. Of course the technology aspect is only part of it. From a financial perspective Bitcoin can reduce credit card processing fees to less than 1 percent, which is much less than the standard 2-5% that is typically charged. Also, because people can pay businesses in Bitcoin without divulging personally identifiable information (names, billing addresses, etc.), they enjoy a level of identity-theft protection that credit cards simply can’t offer. 

Whether or not bitcoin will last forever is irrelevant. The fact that small businesses like Pet Playgrounds are adopting the technology means more people will utilize the technology, and for now that is all that matters.

Why invisible fences, just don’t work.

Nearly a quarter of our customers are dog parents that initially tried to use an invisible electric fence – only to find out that it doesn’t work for their dog. Many people think an invisible underground wireless electric fence is the best way to keep their dog in their yard. However, they are simply not as effective as you might think. Statistics suggest …
