Welcome to the Pet Barrier Owner's Club.
This area of our website is dedicated to helping make sure you have all the information at your fingertips. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to achieve long-lasting success.
We've been assisting people with their dog fence needs since 2003 with great success, so there is not much we haven't come across. (Why not join our FaceBook Page here...)
- If you don't own a Pet Barrier yet (and are a bit overwhelmed by it all...) then it's best to request a dog fence pricing pack here...

Most of the good stuff is in the menu. But here are a few of the little things we get asked about dog fences.
firstly... You do not need to bury our wire
As you know our wire has an HDPe Coating which gives it a 20 year UV rating. (and it's made in Australia).
Hang it on the fence wherever possible, this gives your dog a good visual and physical reference. Attach it directly to the fence. Loop it through the fence or cable tie it directly to the fence. The wire holds a radio signal, NOT electricity (so no need to 'isolate' our wire.
Attach the Dog Fence Wire directly to the fence, high enough off the ground so the rabbits can't reach it.
- Across Bush. Just leave it on the ground and add 'Expansion Loops' (bury it where ever any wildlife might travel through)
- Across Grass or lawn. Cut a split in the lawn about 5cm with a flat shovel and push the wire in. Tread on the grass to close the split.
- Across a driveway. Bring the wire UP the driveway about 1.5m to push the dog further back.
A Concrete Driveway. Pop the wire into the expansion joint and cover the dirt back over or Silicone it in. (best not to go under the concrete as the Rio can affect the signal (But you can)
A Gravel Driveway. Chip into the driveway about 15cm deep (Don't go through the compacting) Drop the wire in and cover it over. (No need to use Conduit - but you can - But it works its way to the surface faster)
- Gateways - Not too deep but if the is a lot of traffic then go deeper and bring the wire inside the gateway towards the house to compensate for the depth of the wire.
Firstly... We call it a Collar but it is actually the 'Receiver' (It is receiving and listening for the radio signal from the fence wire.
Hold the magnet end of the Multi-Tool up to the side of the Receiver Collar. Look for the 2 lines in the Top Right Corner.
- Count the Beeps... The more beeps the higher the correction level. It goes to the top level and ten it returns to level Zero.
Hold the Receiver up to the test loop on the transmitter to see it flashing and hear it beeping. You will get a much larger signal on the fence once you adjust the range/distance control
