Dog Fence System

 

Even though an invisible, underground, wireless or other electric dog fence systems cannot be seen or touched, they do a fairly good job in keeping your dog safe within the exterior areas of your demarcated property. These unique dog containment systems are designed to prevent your dog from straying, being a nuisance to your neighbors and staying safe from accidents or attacks by other animals. It is not only an innovative way to keep your dog safe, but will also save you a lot of money compared to installing a traditional fence in Cardston AB. Moreover, they will also give your home and garden a cleaner, more aesthetic look.

If you find that a traditional fence is beyond your budget, or if such a fence contravenes rules laid down by your neighborhood community, then installing any type of invisible dog fencing system would be the best option. There are some highly effective fences available today, so you can easily choose one that suits your needs and budget.

One of the most popular options available today is the “radio electric” dog fence. It is designed for the sole purpose of deterring your dog from moving out of the demarcated areas of your Cardston AB property or acreage. The invisible dog fence involves the use of two main components – a transmitter and a receiver (radio collar).

How the Dog Fences Works?

The fence has an electric wire fitted with a transmitter and installed underground all around the borders of your acreage or Cardston AB property. This fence system works by giving out a beeping signal which is received by your dog’s radio collar, each time it (the dog) gets too close to the fence. If your dog continues to ignore the signals, a mild static shock is delivered via its collar to stop it from crossing the fence. However, the shock frequency can be adjusted to limit fear or harm to your dog.

Radio Dog Fence

 

Fixing a break in your Invisible Dog Fence or Underground Dog Fence is cheap and easy. You will periodically get breaks in the boundary line of your dog fence. You will know that the line is broken because the dog fence transmitter unit attached to your house will signal an error by either a flashing red light or a beeping noise. You will also notice that your dog's receiver collars no longer work and will not beep when you take them over the boundary line.

The boundary wire for your underground dog fence needs to make a complete loop, beginning and ending at the transmitter unit. When you get a break in the loop the signals cannot get through and the unit stops working. Our job is to find the break in the boundary wire and fix it. Before you start you need to remove the receiver collars from your dogs.

Here are the tools you will need for this DIY voyage:

 

  1. One 100 µH RF Choke (available from Radioshack (catalog number 273-102)) - $1.39
  2. One waterproof wire nut (available from most home improvement or hardware stores) - $0.39
  3. One AM radio - any portable AM radio will do, tuned to 600.
  4. One pair of scissors
  5. One Shovel or anything else you can dig with

 

Time: 30 minutes

There are two ways to find the break, we start with the easiest way:

Finding a Break by Visual Inspection

Most breaks are caused by someone running an edger, aerator or otherwise digging through the boundary wire. These breaks can usually be found by walking along where the boundary wire runs and looking for spots where there has been recent digging. Unearth the wire in these spots and check for damage. The most likely spots are where the boundary wire crosses your driveway or pathways. Also check that the boundary wire is properly connected to the transmitter box.

If you found the break, proceed to the section on fixing the break. If not, proceed to the following section where we will show you how to use an RF Choke to make the boundary wire 'sing' and reveal the location of the break to you.

RF Choke Method

The RF Choke will make your boundary wire 'sing.' We will be able to listen to this sound with the AM radio you have tuned to 600 and will be able to find the break by looking for the part of the wire that is not singing.

First switch off the transmitter box. Now, disconnect the two boundary wire leads that connect to the box. In their place, connect the two legs of the RF choke. Now turn the transmitter box back on. The transmitter box should no longer be signalling that there is an error.

Now turn the transmitter box back off. Take the two boundary wires and wrap an insulated section of each wire around different legs of the RF choke. Now turn the transmitter box back on. The transmitter should still signal that there is no error. Rotate the knob labeled "field width" on the transmitter box clockwise till it is at full power.

Now turn on the radio tuned to AM 600, and walk along the boundary wire. When you hold the radio near the boundary wire it should make a deep pulsing/throbbing noise, like Ugh-Ugh-Ugh-Ugh-Ugh ... As you move the radio closer and further away from the boundary wire you will notice that there are some distances where the sound is louder and some distances where it gets quieter. As you walk around the boundary you will find a spot where there is no sound coming from the AM radio irrespective of whether you move the radio closer or further from the boundary wire. This is where you should dig up the wire and look for the break. It will be within three yards of the quiet spot

Now that you have done the hard part let's fix the break

Fixing the Break

Use the scissors to strip the wire on each side of the break in the boundary wire. Now insert the two stripped sections into the wire nut and gently twist until you start to get a bit of resistance from the wire nut. Now we will test to see if you have fixed the problem.

Return to the transmitter unit and turn off the power. Disconnect the RF choke legs and reconnect the boundary wire. Power back on the transmitter and there should be no error signal. If there is an error signal, look for another break, it is possible that there was more than one. If there was no error signal, bury the boundary wire you dug up. Reset the "field width" knob on the transmitter box to it's original setting and you are done. Congratulations you just saved yourself a house call from the local Underground Dog Fence company and a large bill!

Underground Dog Fence Installation

 

Too many dog owners know the heartbreak and helplessness that you feel when you can't find your precious pooch. Whether they dug under the fence or managed to slip out a door or window when you were not looking or whether they have run off after a rabbit or bird, never to return. Worse, what if you can't put up a physical fence in your neighborhood, whether because of local laws or lack of funds? You might consider getting an underground dog fence. Here are some of the advantages to installing and using an underground dog fence:

Less Work

Since an underground dog fence does not require a huge physical fence, stacks of wood, bricks, stones, cement or anything heavy, there is much less labor involved in installation and configuration.

Views

Have a beautiful view of the lake, a river, forest, landmark or some other pleasant view? You need not worry about your view being blocked with your underground dog fence. There will be no posts, boards or chain link blocking your views. Your views will stay completely intact. In addition, with a typical underground fence, the only physical marks it leaves may be some small flags that identify the fence and let your dog know how far they can go.

Flexibility

Since an underground dog fence does not require a great amount of labor or materials to construct, you can much more easily move the borders of the fence should you need to. Perhaps you installed the fence too far or too close to your home, you are still able to change the fence borders without having to take down any physical fencing.

Training

Underground dog fences do require some training with you and your dog to get yourself and your dog acquainted with how it works. This training will help you and your dog work together better and use the fence to your advantage.

Cost

While an underground dog fence is not cheap, by any means, it is no where near the cost of installing a physical fence around your backyard. In addition, you may save time and money by not having to go out looking for your lost pet again.

Peace of Mind

Most of all, an underground dog fence gives a dog owner peace of mind. You can let your dog out into the yard without having to worry about them getting away.
