Electronic containment fencing for pets installation

Won't Fido and Muffin be surprised! This electronic fence is installed underground and will teach your pets the limits of your yard without physical barriers. The fence is ideal for those pets who prove to be accomplished escape artists. Training time ranges from two weeks to two months.

  • Plot the layout on graph paper before you start installing the fence. Be prepared for obstacles and know how much wire you will need before you buy the kit.
  • Make sure your system comes with enough wire for your yard, a transmitter, a receiver and training flags. The transmitter is the power source, the collar is the receiver, and the flags are used to mark the perimeter until your pet recognizes the boundaries.
  • Use a garden trencher to dig a 2- to 3-inch groove along the perimeter of the yard.
  • Make the corners curved, not angled at 90 degrees. Sharp corners cause the signal to get lost or become overactive.
  • Cross the driveway or a sidewalk by laying the wire in an expansion joint. You can also cut a 1-inch groove with a circular saw using a masonry blade. You'll fill the groove with asphalt caulk once the wire is installed.
  • Put the wire in the groove.
  • Cover the wire with soil and/or sod.
  • Place the transformer near an outlet in a spot that's protected from the weather. Connect the wires as recommended by the manufacturer.
  • Walk the perimeter holding the activated collar. Use the flags to mark the areas where you hear a warning beep, not where shocks occur. You'll want the pet to realize where to stop, not where it's too late.
  • Follow the manufacturer's instructions for training your pet.
