Questions about an electric invisible fence
 
We have 4 acres of an invisible fence installed in rural Vermont.
:confused1: We are wondering how long does the collar beep before the shock comes and with an IF is this something that can be altered?

Check with the MFG of the system
They all could have different features

From experience, two things:

1. The make and model may let you adjust that timing.
2. The dumber the dog, the less it matters.

I had a black lab mix that was just the goofiest thing on the planet. Part black lab, part tree stump. If he saw a deer he would cruise through the barrier like it wasn't even there. The only time it worked was if you walked him through it slowly on a leash. Then he heard it and got the shock, and then I couldn't drag him towards the fence. But once the leash came off, it was like his brain reformatted. Deer! Go!

On ours it is adjustable at the collar itself by changing out the electrodes. Our Golden's is just set to beep three times before a corrective shock and our GoldenDoodles is set just for a corrective shock if I remember right.
The biggest thing on any of the systems is proper training and teaching the dog the borders. Is this a newly installed system or did you move to a place that already had it installed?
