Underground dog fences
Underground Pet Containment Fencing Systems:
In a wired pet containment system, you bury an antenna, or “wire,”
around the area of enclosure, or perimeter. A transmitter in your
garage monitors the perimeter. Your dog wears a small receiver collar
that picks up the radio signal that is sent through the wire. Of
course, if your dog is not wearing the special collar the system
a combination of conditioning and technology, your pet is quickly
trained to respect his boundaries. The dog learns that when he gets
near the flags, his collar starts to beep and if he ventures closer,
the collar gives off a mild static shock, unpleasant but not painful.
he crosses the boundary created by the wire, he receives corrective
stimulation by a mild electric current. By negative reinforcement,
your dog learns to stay within the perimeter. The electronic “shock”
can be compared to the static charge you may get when you shuffle
your feet on the carpet, and then touch a metal door handle.
system has the advantage of flexibility because you can lay it out
to fit your own individual yard. It can be large or small and any
desired shape – you might want to enclose your yard and then choose
to contain additional areas within your yard to keep your dog away
from a spa or pool area, flowerbeds, fishponds, gardens, a tool
you’ve chosen the layout that’s right for your property, you’ll
want to leave the wire above ground until you’ve tested the system
for gaps. Prior to installing the wire, you may want to layout your
boundary with either spray paint or a garden hose. This will give
you a more visual representation of where your system will be.
the wire below ground is simple. Use a shovel to “slice” open the
soil, and then place the thin antenna wire about 1-2 inches underground
(below the surface) along the boundaries of your property or parallel
to an existing fence. After installation, just brush the dirt back
over the seam. Although the system will work if the wire is not
buried, for safety issues, the probability of a lawn mower cutting
the wire or someone tripping over it is 100% if you do not bury
pet containment systems must be installed in a loop from the transmitter
around your property and back to the transmitter. The transmitter
is placed in your garage and operates on your home’s AC current.
It joins the loop together – if the loop is broken, the system will
a set of small white flags are placed on the boundary to remind
the pet and give the pet a visible means of remembering the off-limit
areas. As the pet approaches the boundary, the collar emits a series
of high frequency beeps. If the pet ignores the sound and continues,
it will receive a light shock.
