Wireless Dog Fences

Underground Wired Pet Containment System

We all love having our space and living comfortable lives. Depending on where we come from, fencing our lands might not be such a fascinating thing to do. However, we sometimes decide to put a fence in fear of losing our pets.

Invisible Electric Dog Fence

This is however not the case anymore, with the invention of wired pet containment system, we have everything under control. It doesn’t matter how big your farm is, you will be able to put a boundary for your dog with this invisible fence. Below is a few things we need to learn about wired pet containment system before purchasing one.

Why is it important to install a Pet Containment System?

If you are asking yourself this question, you are not alone. Many pet owners ask themselves the same. The truth is, your dog needs to exercise and it needs space too. At the same time, your neighbors might get irritated when they see your dog wandering in their compound, there are cars in the streets, and many more.

Other than external harm, there are some internal harm that would affect your pet if not well taken care of. These from dangers are like falling into a swimming pool, dangerous tools in the stores and many more. On the other hand, it wouldn’t be so encouraging if she decided to make flowerbeds her play pen. With a Pet Containment System, the security of your dog is assured no matter how large your yard is.

Which is the best dog fence, wired or wireless?

There is no ‘one size fits all’ answer to this question since people have different preferences. At the same time, the difference between the two is majorly their installation process.

How a wired pet containment system works

  • A wire antenna is buried around the intended enclosed space creating a perimeter.
  • A transmitter in your garage will then generate a perimeter boundary signal that monitors the continuity of the buried wire.
  • The dog wears a receiver collar.
  • If the dog crosses the boundary set by the wire, she receives corrective prompt by electric current. Although by negative reinforcement, your dog slows learns to stay within the set boundaries.

The greatest advantage of using a wired Pet Containment System is its flexibility. It is simply laid out to fit the user’s individual yard. It can be small or large depending on the size of your yard. The transmitter also takes any shape. You can enclose the yard, then areas within your yard that are out of bound like; flowerbed or tool shed.

Choosing features:

1. Battery Back-up
If the power to the system’s transmitter fails altogether, the user needs a back-up power supply to keep the system running. We recommend one to have a battery back-up as a safety measure.
2. Lightning Protection
Whether dealing with a wired or a wireless pet containment system, they both operate through the production of electric fields. Wired systems generate electric fields from the ground wire or antenna. Because your system obtains power supply from your home’s AC current, it is unfortunately vulnerable to power surges.
It is important to protect your system from harms originating from your power company by using a surge protector. A power surge would however not protect the system from buildup of inert electricity in the atmosphere or even lightning during a storm.
If your system fails, the dog once again will be free to wander outside the border. We advocate for lightning protection to keep your investment and your pet safe.
3. Audible Line Break Warning
A wired system functions in a closed loop. If the wire (or loop) breaks, the system fails.

An audible line break caution clearly alerts you when there is a problem. To locate the interruption in the ground wire, an “RF choke” device is recommended and it is easily accessible (available in electronic stores). Once this device is installed, a simple AM radio can be used to identify the problem and repair it.

An easy to hear line break warning is suggested to ensure you have an additional means of monitoring the transmitter.

How to install Your Pet Containment System

Wired systems

Before the installation process begins, you need to choose a layout that’s right for your yard. Once that’s done, it’ll be important to leave the wire aboveground so that you can first test the system for gaps.

Installing the loop below ground is simple. Use a spade to “slice” open the soil as needed, when placing the wire, make sure it doesn’t go more than two inches below the surface. An electric edger can also be used. After installation, just brush the soil back over the seam.

Wired pet containment systems have to be installed in a loop. The transmitter is positioned in your garage and functions on your home’s AC current. It connects the loop together. The system will not function If the loop is broken.

Basic Installation of the Front and Back Yard

This type of border set up is probably the most common and the easiest installation. The entire lot as well as your home is encircled in the loop.

You can use a twisted wire to run from the source (in your Garage) to the perimeter. If the twisted wire is formed using two pieces of single strand border wire warped together it produces no boundary. The twisting of the wire can either be done with an electric drill or any other comparable device. The wire should also be roughly 1’ per twist. Remember the size of the wire reduces as you twist it, so let it be big enough.

You may cross a concrete or paved drive way by numerous methods:

  • Run the wire through a crack or an existing seam in the drive.
  • Run the wire through an obtainable drainage pipe under the drive.

Double Loop Installation — Back Yard Only

This type of border set up produces a double extensive field and can fit in most yards. The double loop is mainly used to describe 3 sides of the pet containment area while the house is used as the fourth boundary. The 2 wires must be separated by not more than 8 feet depending on the width settings of your field.

  • This type of installation is recommended for most yards
  • This type of installation will give the dog easy access of the house.
  • Can be used to create a double wide field.
  • Can be fit for most yards. This type of installation however, requires more than a single loop wire installation.

Caution: Make sure you don’t create a space between the fields. The user is recommended to first lay the wire on the ground to test the system before.

Training Your Dog to subsist in a Pet Containment System

Any pet containment system cannot be effective if you have not given your dog proper training. It’s not like a fence. It’s invisible. Your dog will be confused. A strong-minded dog might decide to withstand the spur without an understanding of what is going on. This might be dangerous or even fatal.

It is not advisable to use the Wired Pet Contentment System for dogs below six months of age. At the same time, the recommended weight is not less than ten (10) pounds before. If the dog is younger than six months it will probably not accept the required training while the receiver collar might fail to snugly fit on a smaller dog.

Safety measures when using a Wired Pet Containment System

1. Allow your dog wear the system collar for about 3-7 days before you activate the pet containment system.
The dog will get used to the collar. The aim is here is teaching the dog that, it is not the collar that issues corrective stimulation but the perimeter.
2. The receiver collar must be comfy against your dog’s skin.
People normally use the “three fingers” rule to ensure the collar is well fixed. The ‘three finger rule’ dictates that one the collar is fit, the pet owner should be able to slide three fingers under the dog’s collar to guarantee a relaxed fit. A well-fitting collar is comfortable, safe, and necessary at the same time, it helps the system to work properly.
3. Your dog should not wear the collar for more than 12 hours.
Because of the remedial prongs on the underneath of the collar, wearing the collar more than 12 hours a day can cause skin irritation. Ensure the dog is either in the house or in a kennel as long she doesn’t have the receiver collar on.
4. Use flags to mark the margins of the perimeter at first.
Your dog will require visual cues to learn. Leave the flags standing for 15-30 days.
5. Your dog should be on a leash the first time she receives corrective stimulation.
Walk the dog on a leash. When he crosses the borders, pull him out and command him to “sit” and “stay”. You direct your dog to proper behaviors. He must learn from you.
