How to Set Up a Wireless Dog Fence

  1. 1. Dog Fences
  2. 2. PHYSICAL The type of fence should be chosen to keep dogs safe from danger while allowing them to exercise. UNDERGROUND WIRELESS
  3. 3. Physical Fences are designed to restrict movement across boundaries. They can be made of brick, concrete, stone, wood, chain link, vinyl, or iron. These fences may also serve as a primary fence.
  4. 4. Depending on the size of the yard, installing physical fences can take many hours and be very costly.
  5. 5. The yard is measured and materials are ordered. Most often, holes are dug, then posts are placed in the holes. Cement is then added for support.
  6. 6. Dogs have been known to jump over or dig under fences. Height and strength are important factors when planning dog fence installation.
  7. 7. Underground & Wireless Fences A hidden fence is often a solution for homeowners with zoning regulations. These fences are often called “hidden” fences. They are designed to keep a dog within boundaries without a physical barrier. They are more aesthetically pleasing, easier to install, and lower the cost of owning a dog.
  8. 8. The Underground Fence Steps for installation: • Chart out the desired boundaries around the yard • Mount the transmitter box • Lay out the wire above the ground • Connect the wire to the box to verify that it works
  9. 9. You can bury the wire, which involves digging a trench around the boundary. Wire-laying trenchers can be rented for this job.
  10. 10. Avoiding Hazards • Watch for sprinkler system lines or low voltage power lines when digging • Driveways and sidewalks will need special attention
  11. 11. Connect the wires to the control box— A green light verifies the system works. The collar should also be tested to be sure it works correctly. Finally, place the boundary flags to mark the perimeter.
  12. 12. Some Disadvantages The wire can rise through the soil, becoming exposed over time. If this happens, the wire can get severed by yard maintenance. This renders the fence useless, until the wire is repaired. Discovering that the fence has been disabled can be very problematic since there are no alerts.
  13. 13. Dog owners who wish to avoid self-installation can hire a professional… Or simply choose a wireless fence system.
  14. 14. The Wireless Fence Wireless dog fence installation is extremely fast and easy. It usually takes about an hour. Rather than using an underground wire, the radial-shape wireless dog fence from Havahart® Wireless emits a radio signal from the central unit. This activates when the dog travels beyond the set radius from the unit.
  15. 15. Installing a Wireless Fence • Determine the roaming area for the dog and where the trigger zone will be • Mount the controller inside your home on an outer wall and plug in • Activate the collar and choose the “tone only” correction level After deciding how large an area your dog will have to roam, set the desired fence radius on the controller.
  16. 16. Training Flags To place the training flags, hold the collar by your side, walking toward the boundary while gently shaking the collar. When the collar beeps and the light flashes red, place a flag at the boundary. Flags should be placed 6 feet apart, so repeat this process for the remaining flags.
  17. 17. Dog Collar and Training The last step in installation involves fitting the collar on your dog, and adjusting to fit snugly but not tightly. Training your dog for the wireless fence typically takes about 2 weeks with two to three fifteen-minute sessions per day.
  18. 18. Breakthroughs in technology have revolutionized advanced wireless systems. Superior wireless systems work for large yards—up to 11.5 acres. They are easy to use and typically cheaper than physical or underground fences.
  19. 19. Havahart® Wireless systems are perfect for families on the go. They are completely portable— perfect for moves and vacations.
  20. 20. Havahart® Wireless controllers are small with easy to use digital screens. The controller tells the distance to the dog and the battery life of the collar. An alarm alerts owners if the dog leaves the roaming area or if the collar battery is low.
  21. 21. Most underground and wireless dog fences shock the dog when he re-crosses the boundary line. This makes pets reluctant to return home.
  22. 22. Havahart® Wireless systems have a correction time-out feature. Dogs will not be corrected for returning to the roaming area if they ever breach the boundary.
