Growing up in the inner city, I had to keep my dog indoors. When I got older, I moved further from the city and found myself renting a room on a large estate, where cows, horses and even dogs roamed the property. The owner had a small sheep dog named Billy, who always roamed the property getting himself into plenty of trouble. 10 years later, owners with large properties without fencing have a solution: GPS Dog Collars from SpotOn.
SpotOn – Satellite Fencing
What’s really dope about SpotOn is it allows users to custom-design their virtual fencing area. Owners just walk the permitter they want to keep their dog in, and bam, a fence is setup. And this fence isn’t just for homeowners with a big back yard, people who love the outdoors can use the GPS dog collar to create a fence to keep their dog from getting lost.
Static Correction Collar + Pricing
So what happens when a dog exits the virtual fencing? Well, a small static correction is sent from the collar to correct the dog from venturing outside the boundary. It’s not painful and according to SpotOn it’s the equivalent to feeling a bit of static when touching a door knob of static carpet.
Each collar will set you back around $1500, and users can add a $7 monthly cell fee to receive notifications about dog leaving the containment zone and allow you to digitally track your dog as well. While not a necessary add on, dope that its offered.
