A Quick Summary on How Do Dog Fences Really Works:

  1. The Power Supply (Transformer) powers the Transmitter (It must be installed inside a Dry and Water-Proof Shed). It regulates and controls the power correctly, preventing power surges or fluctuations that can disrupt the Transmitter and causes the jumping of the signal. 

  2. The Transmitter is like a Radio. That emits a radio signal wave that runs through the Wire that goes around the property. The radio signal loops around the whole property and pushes the dog away from the boundary wire for about 1.5 to 2m distance).

  3. The Wire should be durable and tuff that can last a very long time above the Australian Sun. Our Wire is Australian Made for Australian Weather and Heat. With 7 strands copper code and 2mm HDpe coating that has 20 Year UV rating that will keep the wire from breaking. Keeping your dog going near the property. Wire breaks will fail the entire system.

  4. The Radio Signal we use in our dog fence system is Digital Coded FM Frequency radio signal so it will not interfere with your TV or Microwave Oven. The Radio Signal activates the Receiver Dog Collar.

  5. When the Receiver Dog Collar picks up the Radio Signal when the dog gets near the boundary area or where the wire is located. First, a Beep Warning tone will let your dog know that he is entering a no go area to have a chance to back away. But, if your dog ignores the Warning Tone and continues to go near the wire or boundary line, the receiver collar gives a static correction in which you selected the level of correction. Making the dog back away and return safely to the Safe Zone. The Training flags will greatly help the dog to visually understand his no-go areas and remember it.

  • Remember that corners should be rounded since right angles tend to distort transmitter signals

  • Make sure that the wire has a continuous loop that goes back to the Transmitter

  • If you are burying the wire, bury it at least 1 to 3 inches below the ground so that you won't trip over the wire or get caught and cut by the lawnmower while gardening

  • Have an allowance for breaks and expansion joints
