Invisible Dog Fence System with 2 x Rechargeable Collar
Do your dogs constantly escape from your yard? Are neighbors getting annoyed? Are local animal authorities knocking on your door?
Installing an invisible dog fence is a great and proven solution to keeping your dogs safely on your property. This system is designed for use with 2 dogs.
The radio signal dog fences are one of the most successful dog containment systems on the market today! They are easy to install and use and provide your dogs with the consistent messaging required to keep them away from the boundary and fence line.
INVISIBLE DOG FENCE FEATURES:
- The pet fence transmitter are the central point to the fence. Here are the things you need to know:
- it plugs into a normal electrical point
- the strength of the radio signal it transmits along the wire is adjustable to suit the size and drive of your dog. A minimum distance of 5ft is recommended
- The collars (receivers) that come with the invisible dog fence PT16-2 are:
- easy to adjust for a firm fit (see fitting instructions below)
- The wire that transmits the radio signal is 18 gauge. There is 1000ft of wire on the spool
- the 20 flags that come with the dog containment system are to be placed initially as a visual cue for your dog during the training phase (see below)
HOW TO INSTALL THE INVISIBLE DOG FENCE:
Here is how the system works, which will give some insight into the procedure of installing the fence.
The transmitter is powered by mains power. The wire that comes with the system, starts at the transmitter, creates a loop around your yard and then returns to the transmitter. The reason for this is that the transmitter sends a radio signal along the wire, it goes around the loop and then returns to the transmitter. This way the transmitter knows there is no break in the wire. This signal can be adjusted on the transmitter to determine how far the signal can get from the wire - a minimum distance of 5ft is recommended.
The collars are also known as receivers, because they receive and respond to the radio signal. Initially the response is an audio warning tone as the collar starts to enter the radio signal zone. It then progresses to an static correction to match the drive of the dog entering the area to deter them from continuing towards the boundary.
The training is the most important part, as your dog is taught how to respond to the audio warning and avoid any corrections.
The following steps will help in the setup of your invisible dog fence:
- Let your dog wear the collar (see #2 for fitting instructions) regularly over the next few days - without having the dog fencing system turned on. This is to help prevent your dog from becoming collar wise.
- To get the results from the invisible pet fence, fitting the collar is one of the most crucial aspects. You will want to fit the collar as high as you can on your dog's neck (sitting just below the jaw). It needs to be a firm fit, you should be able to jiggle the collar without in moving from position.
- Create a rough map of your property, work out where you would like the dogs to have access and where they are not to go. There are a number of hints and tricks included with the guide, and feel free to email us with any concerns you may have.
- Set the transmitter up close to an electrical point and out of the weather.
- Get the wire and start by connecting one end into the transmitter, run the wire in a loop around the area that you want to keep your dogs in, and then bring the tail of the wire back to the transmitter and connect it in. This loop is how the transmitter knows that there are no line breaks in the wire.
- Then charge the collars, move away from the transmitter and turn them on. Then hold the collar by the straps and hold the butterfly tool against the collar probes.
- Then walk towards the transmitter holding the collar at approximately your dog's head height. You will hear the collars audio warning and then see the butterfly tool light up. This indicates where the signal starts. Check this by coming at the wire from a couple of different angles
- Make any adjustments to the signal strength via the dial on the transmitter - either to increase or decrease the diameter of the signals strength.
- When you are happy with the signal strength, place a flag every 50ft along the length of the wire. This gives the dogs a visual cue to work with during the initial phase of training.
- The training phase is one of the most important aspects to the success of the dog containment system. It is imperative that you follow the training guide completely. If you have any questions about this, please contact us at your earliest convenience.

It is important that you limit the time your dog wears the collar. No more than 12 consecutive hours at a time. This is to prevent pressure necrosis (similar to bed sores), where the probes can irritate the skin. It is best to stick to a maximum time of 12 hours. Where possible, slightly adjust how the collar sits (a little to the left or right of the last fitting), as this will also help minimize this risk. Finally, regularly clean around your dogs necks and the collar as well.
