Why SpotOn is the top Invisible Fence® alternative for Drax the Corso0 comments
7 reasons to switch from Invisible Fence® to SpotOn Fence.
As longtime Invisible Fence® users, April and her family wondered if there’s a better way to contain Drax, their 125 pound cane corso. With plenty of green space at their Colorado home as well as their family’s farm that they visit frequently, April was eager to learn about wireless systems that allow you to make fences both at home and away.
After getting introduced to SpotOn, they found it to be an excellent fit and quickly realized the benefits of SpotOn versus Invisible Fence®.
1. No wires.
The SpotOn fence uses GPS to create a boundary, so there are no wires to worry about getting hit, broken, or powered down.
2. Easy setup.
SpotOn fence sets up in minutes and can be managed on our easy-to-use app. You also have the option to make precise boundaries with the collar, which is the method April prefers.
“What I love about the SpotOn is that you literally walk the collar around the perimeter you want and it uses GPS to create the boundary. There’s no hassle with wires or anything.”
3. Larger boundaries.
Because a traditional in-ground fence requires you to bury a wire, installation can be cumbersome and costly if you have a large property with many acres. For those considering a traditional fence, the cost of lumber can also be a deterrent. This was a standout feature for April, who wanted Drax to be able to freely roam her family’s farm.
‘Unlike most invisible fences, it actually works up to 1,000 acres which is incredible.’
4. It’s waterproof.
Drax lives for splashing in water. SpotOn is durable and meets IP67 standards, so your dog can swim and play in the water without worry.5. Ability to create multiple fences.
While Drax loves time spent at home with the family, being able to travel with their dog fence was a major benefit for April.
‘The coolest thing about SpotOn is that you can set up 20 different boundaries. So for example, I set up a boundary at our family’s farm. Unlike a traditional one, you get your wire, and that’s where that is, is where it stays. For the price of 1 collar, you essentially get 20 different floor plans.’
6. Easy to understand for the dog.
The SpotOn system uses two alert tones as your dog approaches a GPS fence boundary, which you’ll train your dog to understand as its signal to return to the inside of the fence boundary. SpotOn also will issue a vibration and optional static correction if the dog travels beyond the boundary.
Because Invisible Fence® functions similarly, the transition was smooth for Drax.
‘He’s super familiar with the concept, so he learned really fast.’
With Keep Out Zones, you can create off-limits areas where you don’t want your dog to roam. For April, keeping Drax away from the farm animals was key.
‘It’s great because I can set a boundary between the horses and chickens.’
‘We absolutely love the freedom that this collar gives us and we think you will too.’
