Do you have more than one pet? No problem. You can contain as many as you like as long as they are wearing a compatible Receiver Collar. Four adjustable levels of correction plus tone only mode for training lets you find just the right level for your pet. The Transmitter sends a radio signal through a boundary wire you bury around the perimeter of your yard to a Receiver Collar around his neck. When your pet approaches the Static Correction Zone, he hears a series of beeps from the Receiver Collar followed by a safe, Static Correction. The correction is designed to startle your pet and the sensation is similar to walking across carpeting, then touching a door knob. This method has been proven safe and effective and it will not harm your pet. Your pet quickly learns the areas he is free to enjoy.

How Much Wire Do You Need?

This was my first in-ground fence experience. I went with this DIY solution because the cost of a professionally installed system to contain 5 acres was prohibitive.
I was able to rent a cable trencher for about $70/day and easily cut about 4,500 feet of trench in slightly damp soil in about 4 hours.
The trencher also laid in the wire, so that was a non-issue.
The only real challenge was twisting the wires to cancel the signal where it crossed the yard. I had to create a about a 60-foot twisted wire. This is relatively easy to do using a power drill except that the wire is constantly trying to untwist itself. The longer the run, the worse it gets. It Took two of us to wrangle the wire and this was by far the most difficult step to manage.
I mounted the power unit on a wall in the garage, ran the wire through the wall and into a small section of conduit down to the trench.
After some confusion about power settings and how to make them (I'm embarrassed to admit that I overlooked the fact the front of the power unit opens to reveal the dials) and thank to some help from a great customer service guy, the unit was functioning.
Training was a little dicey and my dogs got shocked more than I thought they would. But it's been about a month since installation and they're doing fantastic. I haven't had the confidence to remove the flags yet. I'll begin removing them gradually this week.
All in all, I am thrilled with the cost and quality of this product. It has given my dogs new freedom and my family peace of mind.

My Pointer is a master escape artist from my fenced in back yard. The Radio fence was easy to set up and run the wire around the perimeter of the fence. I had to play around with boundary width and correction intensity to get it just right but now it works like a charm. My dog still digs like crazy but she is no longer escaping from the fenced in area.

First let me say that customer service was terrific at helping me troubleshoot the set up of our system. Our house sits on a huge open lot but we wanted our dog to be contained in a 1/2 acre section in where we could see him at all times while we're not outside with him. But breaking that area up with a real fence was not a practical option. We also wanted to be able to take him out with us on the rest of the property without having to worry about confusing him by walking through the containment area (accessed from a separate doorway). I was really concerned that without any visual barriers of where the containment area stopped/started this was going to be a problem. But at exactly one week he had it down.
The first several days of training were a bit challenging. It was hard to know exactly when to correct the dog because I couldn't hear the collar beep without getting my head down close to his neck (which was distracting to the dog and made him think it was playtime). So I went around the boundary with the collar and carefully placed the flags right at the point where I heard the beep activate. Then I trusted the flags to know when to correct. Did not use the shock until day 7. Up to that point I wasn't sure he was understanding what we were doing. But that ONE shock made him jump back to me in a hurry. That's when I was glad for all work we did without the shock, because he suddenly knew exactly what the flags meant and hasn't been shocked since. It's been two weeks now and we have rabbits, squirrels, wandering dogs and even toys that accidentally pass the boundary and nothing will entice him to go through.
Our dog is a Golden Retriever mix (maybe some Husky?). Without this system he'd be gone from the property within 5 minutes sniffing out a scent or just rambling off to explore. Knowing he is contained when we don't have time to play or be outside with him is a great relief!
Watch lots of videos to be sure you understand the training process, commit to training everyday and be patient! I recommend no shock until your dog has had many sessions to learn that the flags are the signal to turn around.
