How is invisible fence installed?
Outdoor hidden fences are created by burying a ‘boundary wire’ a few inches underground around your property. The buried wire carries a harmless, low level radio signal from a transmitter installed in your house or garage. Your pet wears a lightweight, waterproof receiver collar that recognizes the radio signal.
Does an invisible fence need to be a closed loop?
Yes, in order for the invisible fence to work, it needs to be a completely closed loop. There are a few other variables to watch out for, too. One of the first things you should do when installing an invisible fence is to mark out where your utility lines are located.
How deep do you bury underground dog fence?
The main reasons for burying dog fence wire are aesthetics, protection, and trip hazard. If you are planning on burying the wire we recommend a depth between 3″ and 24″ – burying the wire too deep may begin to alter the signal strength and risks running into other buried lines on utilities in your yard.
Can a dog run through an invisible fence?
Invisible dog fences, whether they be in-ground or wireless systems, seem like a great technology in theory. You can allow your dog to run free, without needing to be confined by a runner at all times.
Is Invisible Fence worth the money?
Many people think an invisible underground wireless electric fence is the best way to keep their dog in their yard. However, they are simply not as effective as you might think. Statistics suggest that invisible wireless electric fences are only about 70% effective.
Can you put invisible fence in conduit?
Yes, in-ground dog fence wire can go through conduit as long as you don’t bury it greater than 6 inches below the soil and no less than a few inches under the driveway or sidewalk.
Will my neighbors invisible fence interfere with mine?
Q. Will my neighbors’ invisible fence interfere with mine? Neighboring invisible fences can interfere with each other. Two wires that run too closely together can cancel each other’s signal, effectively allowing your dogs to travel back and forth between yards.
Does an electric fence need to make a complete loop?
The answer is no, an electric fence DOES NOT have to make a complete loop. Creating a continuous loop will increase voltage on the fence line, because power is pushed in both directions. Essentially, with a continuous loop, voltage only has to travel half the distance.
What is the easiest way to install an underground dog fence?
The easiest way to bury a dog fence wire is with a trencher or power edger. If you have a small yard you can use an electric one (see below). Use a trencher to quickly dig the trench and lay down the wire.
Can you run underground dog fence above ground?
Basically, any electronic dog fence will work above ground however, most require you to bury the wire because the light gauge dog electric fence wire they supply is easily broken unless buried underground. We provide special, high strength, UV and moisture resistant wire that is certified for above ground installation.
