Dogs need to release their energy and that is a fact. They spend most days inside our homes taking a good deal of naps throughout the day and that makes them ready for action when we get home. While this napping lifestyle may be the envy of some humans, our dogs really need to get out and expel that energy. Walking them down the street helps, but it does not satisfy your dog like a good bit of running in the yard. Some dogs actually require at least a half hour of exercise and more a day! By satisfying this need, your dog will be better behaved on the inside of your home and you can keep your sofa cushions in one piece.
A well exercised dog will be a better behaved dog for you and your family and the dog will love you more for it. Remember that our little fur children spend most of their time huddled inside of our homes and are craving to get out and run......Let Them!!
How It Works
The most common configuration is shown below and is typically a large circle to encompass most of your yard. Any type of variation can be made as long as the wire completes a loop of sorts. There is then a control or 'twist' wire that goes inside a garage or your house to plug into the control box.
The wire is trenched into the ground about four inches and scarring on the grass is either very minimal or not seen at all in less than a month of good grass growing!
The wire produces a radio frequency that will trigger the rechargeable dog collar to go off at a certain spot in the yard. The collar will give an audible warning to your dog and if they continue into the boundary zone, they receive a static correction or shock.
The graph below is a guideline of how the wire emits the radio signal. The distance from the wire to the boundary flags is dependent on how tall your dog is. So if you have an 80 pound Golden, the flags will be about five feet away from where we have to trench the wire for the system.
This is a very basic explanation and your yard may have different obstacles and variables to it.

Local Dog Parks
Franklin Dog Park
700 Lincoln Street Franklin, MA
This is an excellent fenced in and a double gated dog park located with the Dacey Community Field in Franklin, MA. As a bonus it also has a great playground next to it for kids. There is a large area for dogs with clean up supplies and disposal bins. Picnic tables are great for a lunch, snack or just getting some water for your pups. There are trees and rocks throughout and a nice place to take a stroll! As always, please respect this and any other area by picking up after your dogs!
The Nature Trail and Cranberry Bog
The Nature Trail offers a fun-filled, outdoor experience for everyone. Located behind Bass Pro Shops in the Patriot Place South Marketplace, the trail features 32 acres of cranberry wetlands and wooded areas. There is a scenic half mile trail that is made of mulch. To get there you enter the south entrance to Patriot Place and take a right just before Bass Pro Shops.
Keep an eye open too as the Bass Pro Shops often hosts Dock Dogs outside in their parking lot over the summer and it quite the experience to take in with your dog!
