Pet Containment System

A pet containment system is a device designed to restrict the movement of household animals or pets. They are designed with the idea of protecting, controlling and safe guarding the animals. The earliest versions were kennels, leashes and collars. Technical containment systems originated in 1974 when Richard Peck patented an invisible fencing process which was designed to contain household pets such as dogs and cats within a certain area. The first commercial uses of such a system were to keep livestock in an enclosed circle. These systems were owned and sold commercially by Richard Peck from his company “The Invisible Fencing Company”.

Geographical Positioning System used in Pet containment

In 1987, RF collars were introduced to restrict the movements of household goats. Much later a electric receiver was invented which delivers small sized electric shocks through the nose to domestic animals. A fenceless animal control system was constructed using the principles of GPS. A portable unit is used containing batteries and suitable electrical wiring and components, which makes it possible to determine the animal’s location. A remote controlled programmable device determines the straying boundaries of your pet animals and delivers an electric shock when the animal attempts to stray out of its prefixed boundaries.
