This article is all about manipulating the radio signal to what we want to do. Once you understand the theory of what is going on in relation to the transmitter and how the radio signal is travelling down the wire - you can concur anything (Well Nearly anything).

If you touch 2 wires that are going north and south the radio signal would be neutralized. So you can place a TWISTED PAIR OF WIRE connecting your fence and the barrier but you need a well-regulated power supply and a transmitter so that signals would not jump or fluctuate and scare your dog because they might have Porch Sitting Syndrome.
Once you understand this concept you will be in the top 3.5% of people on the planet who understand Pet Fences… Congrats. Twisting the wires is all about manipulating the radio signal to give you areas that your dog can walk.
But there are certain rules to follow.
"No.. You cannot run one single wire down the fence double it back and allow your dog to go over it (not that you would ever want to) Watch the video to find out why.”
Protecting your dog is, of course, one of the priorities that why you opt to get an Electronic Dog Fence but surely we also would like that our garden beds, fish pond, and vegetable patches are also protected with a barrier so that your dog could not disturb them.
The unregulated power supply can change significantly when the voltage input or load current changes. Having a regulated power supply does not allow the radio signal to fluctuate even when the current changes.
If you have an FM transmitter you won’t have to worry about signals jumping from one place to another and it keeps your dog from getting zapped even he is in a safe zone and if that happens he’ll be scared.
One way of twisting the wires would be placing them inside a drill and give them a gentle twist then you can drop it in the trench you have made, making sure that wires are twisted enough so they are touching each other and just cover the wire with some dirt. Your dog can now walk across the top of those twisted wires and will not get affected by anything.
So this is all handy information to have when you are designing your dog fence layout - I am surprised by the number of people who have a pet fence… but their dog is still tearing up the washing - (their dog is not jumping the fence but they have to buy a new pair of jeans every month) A little knowledge adds so much value to your Pet Fence Project.0
IF you simply twist one wire together like running it back on itself it will NOT stop the signal (never Ever).If you run a wire from the fence to a garden bed, go around the garden bed and then run it back along the first wire to where you started - your dog can walk across the 2 touching wires but not get into the garden bed.
Why? Just think ‘North’ and ‘South’
If the transmitter were a 2-way radio the signal would travel up the aerial (the wire) and leave the areal to travel outwards. But if we run the wire (The Aerial) back into the transmitter AFTER it has traveled around the property… The transmitter can then BLOCK the signal so it has no choice but to expand out of the wire. (Which is why the signal increases as you turn up the ‘Range Control’ (or volume)… you are increasing the pressure to push the signal further away from the wire.)
Once you understand how the radio signal is created we can add this quirky little fact that when the radio signal runs up to the garden bed and then back again and the 2 wires are touching… It will neutralize the radio signal.
Which is also why your dog can wake between the shed and the fence… the signal travels North to get to the boundary… runs around the property heading in one direction and then travels south back to the shed where you started from.
A double loop is when you are just doing, say the rear of the property… you can run one wire at the top of the fence to the other side of the property and then return the wire to the transmitter along the bottom of the fence.
If it is a garden bed protection you can run the wire along the rear of the garden and along the fence and then return the wire along the centre of the garden bed.
When you do not need the radio signal you can touch the wires together… here you have the North/South effect and so can neutralize the radio signal and let your dog into that area.
So let’s say you have no need for the radio signal along your back fence (which may be a 10-foot tall brick wall) and there is no way your dog can escape over that fence. As you run the pet fence wire back to the transmitter you can touch them together along the wall and allow your dog access.
