So you are considering installing a radio dog containment fence yourself. These are otherwise known as invisible fences which is actually a name brand not a product. Not everyone knows that and that is why we created this site. As former professional installers of invisible fences we thought this information would be useful if it was all located in one place from people who have used and install every system out there.
An Invisible Fence* system can cost $2,000+. You can do it yourself for about $300. We can help. This free guide, shows you how to install an underground electric dog fence comparable to pros like Invisible Fence * for a fraction of the cost. Take a few minutes and walk through the steps or skip ahead if you only need certain information.
Start with the FAOs page, this will answer the questions you may have or clarify one you may have been given the wrong answer. Then proceed to the reviews, both wireless and in-ground to determine which system will fit your needs. Finally, take a look a our Installation/Training page which has the instructions for installation and training. We have also included the different manufacturers guides so that you can review them before you buy. Check out our instructional video that walk you through each step of the process.
The first step of the process is to select the dog fence that best fits your needs. All of the systems work, but you will want to read through all the reviews before you make your decision.
Next it is time for the dog fence installation. Start by planning the layout of your system. Learn about how twisted wire is used to cause non-correction parts of the installation. Once it comes time for the actual installation, there are a variety of methods. Some people will no bury the wire at all, stapling it to the ground or a convenient fence. Burial can be made much faster and easier by renting a wire laying trencher or using your garden edger. If you need to get across a driveway, we can make that painless too. Then hook up you system and start training.
Finally, it is time to train your dog. This is the most important step in the process and when done correctly your dog will be conditioned to stay within the invisible fence boundries of your yard. This training takes about 10 minutes twice a day for an average of 10 days. For the details, visit our training guide.
