Pet parents don’t mind spending on some of the most expensive pure breeds like a husky. He is one energetic sprinter yet to keep him within your yard, you have to implore some measures. Huskies love freedom, and chasing after prey is one way they exercise their bodies. However, you don’t want them missing or stolen once they hit outside your gates, right?

While using a collar to train a husky is inevitable, you also need to set boundaries. Train your hound not to go near some points. Collar training should not take too long. Huskies tend to be stubborn and that’s why you should create a reminder four to five times than the ordinary dogs. Let’s look at how to use a wired shock fence.

How Often Should You Use a Wired Shock Fence?

Once you introduce a husky pup to your compound, his security matters a lot. He may stray out while on his normal run and you may not find him ever again. To avoid this scenario, you need to set up your electric fence as you plan to settle him in.

As part of his training, let him have the collar when you can keep a close eye. Any time he approaches the fence creates an alert so that he learns to keep off the specific point. However, keep him inside his kennel when out of sight so that he doesn’t have to stay with the collar outside the training hours.

On the contrary, distractions may get him to cross the fence and that is why the pet society recommends having a traditional fence alongside an electric one. Moreover, a malfunctioned remote system may cause your dogs to beat the security system and stray away.

Do shock collars affect the huskies?

Regardless of the age or dog breed, there are several shock collar sizes and brands. All dogs feel the effect and touch of a collar. Although you can distract your husky from his chase using a collar, it is not advisable. Pains from electric dog collars create some form of madness and anger in some dogs.

 Aggression and temper may worsen and hounds become aliens to strangers and other animals. Their tendency to attack becomes worse; hence, you should always have the dog in control using a harness.

Why You Shouldn’t Use an Electric Fence

While your dogs remain in your control, the outside stray dogs, strangers, and other wild animals may still create a distraction for your huskies. The worst happens when you are away and a confrontation causes injury. An electric fence is risky to most animals and may cause electrocution to puppies.

Besides an electric fence, a 5-foot wooden or wire mesh fence should help you keep your huskies safe. The Siberian husky tends to dig holes with his claws, so unless he trespasses from the major fence, you don’t have a reason to punish the rest of your dogs with an electric fence.

Huskies Need Restrain

Unless you are keeping the less aggressive small dog breeds, restriction of movement is very necessary. Dog thieves have ways to get away with almost any dog, so you need to protect yours to avoid losses.

On the other hand, Siberian huskies tend to escape. They love freedom and apart from hunting, they like to explore around new neighborhoods. You don’t want to find your dog missing after all the efforts to maintain him, yes? A dog pet is expensive. The best you can do is keeping him secure.

Lastly, they are temperamental and have a serious hunting instinct. If your dog attacks the wrong person, you may incur other charges of treatment. Therefore, let them enjoy all the space in your backyard but on a leash.

Wrap Up

A wired shock and collar are a means to train an aggressive dog while setting limits of exploration for escapees. We are not saying that all huskies tend to run away, but most adults do especially when they cannot resist their craving for prey. Besides that, tress passing should not endanger your animals, either inside or outside your yard. Otherwise, enjoy your run with your Siberian huskies and ensure that they are having enough space for a good stretch.
