So, you’re here because you need the right dog containment kit for your property. You already tried using colourbond steel fence around your property and still... your dog digs under or jumps over your fencing.
You might be looking for something that you could place beside your physical fence to safely and effectively contain your dog in your property - an electric dog fence.
This guide will help you determine the right fence system that is suitable for properties with colorbond fencing.
We installed an invisible dog fence to a property with colorbond steel fences, roofs, and sheds. They wanted the radio transmitter to be kept inside the colorbond shed, and run the wire along the colorbond fence. Upon installing the dog fence, we found out that they’ve had a previous fence system that failed because radio frequency doesn’t react well with metal.
An electronic dog fence should have a coded digital FM radio frequency that works well even with these colorbond steel. This means that there are no false zaps, no fuzzy TVs, and no interference with other electronics.
The coded digital FM radio frequency from the Radio Transmitter means that your dog's Receiver Collar will be the only one to get the radio signal from the Transmitter. The Receiver Collar would not be accidentally activated by stray radio signals, it will not interfere with any appliances such as the TV and Microwave oven, for example.
Working with metal fences, sheds, and roofs, Electric Dog Fences that uses AM Radio signals would not work properly. Metals can disrupt AM radio signals and would cause it to jump around and zap your dog even if he is in the right area. Once this happens, the training would be inconsistent and your dog can get confused or worse get the Porch Sitting Syndrome, and you don't want that to happen.
Having a Regulated Power Supply will maintain a constant signal and will not fluctuate when there's a voltage spike, causing the collar to correct the dog in the wrong area.
Also, another good feature that an invisible dog fence should have would be a signal range setting that would help create a custom depth of signal from the dog fence wire.
First of all, we don’t want you spending a lot of money when you can just go for a much cheaper and more effective fence system to keep your dog in your property. Traditional Fences will never be as effective as Electronic Dog Fences.
When your dog has gotten used to these traditional fences, your dog will find a way to either jump over the fence... or dig under the fence.
Electronic Dog Fences don’t have this problem because basically there is no going over or under! The dog is deterred by the system way before they get close to the boundary. With electronic dog fence, your dog can run around your property without the worry of escaping!
We offer different variations of invisible dog fence systems to suit your dog’s temperament and your property needs.

So let’s have a look at the systems…
This kit is ideal for fencing large areas of properties (over 1 acre). It also can be used in setting up a dog fence up to a hundred acres by simply adding more wire.
This kit is perfect for smaller properties up to 1 acre. It is mostly used to address the dog’s jumping over the fence or dog’s digging in the garden.
Training a dog is easy. For best results, you must have a consistent and persistent training routine. The idea here is you do the 80% training... 20% left, the dogs work it out themselves.
Most of the training, you’ll be teaching where the dog is allowed to go.
Take the dog into the radio signal at a level just above their comfort zone.
Train one command at a time or the dog will be confused. For example, do training at the dog’s favourite escape hole, and when you feel satisfied with the results, call it a day.
It is important to walk the dog around the property at the beginning and end of every training session, so the dog will know where is the safe zone.
Put the little flags on the ground to indicate the "no-go" zone.
Use a low, cautionary tone of voice when you’re walking towards the no-go zone, and high, rewarding tones when walking away from the fence. Dogs can definitely understand the human’s tone of voice.
Rushing the training will do you no good.
Setting too much high level of static stimulation will just scare your dog. This is what we call the Porch Sitting Syndrome - your dog won’t go out of the property completely.
When this happens, motivate the dog to go out of the house and do a lap around the property without any static stimulation.
If you’re training the dog for the first time, that’s when you put the collar on a higher level.
