How do they work?
Dog Containment Fences all function in a similar way. A transmitter is connected to a main source of power, ensuring it is protected from the weather. A wire is run from this transmitter, above or below ground, looping around the desired containment area and returning back to the transmitter. The transmitter sends a signal through this wire that is programmed to your dog's collar. The dog's receiver collar picks up the radio signal, first warning the dog with a beep or vibration and then delivering a static pulse correction if they continue heading towards the boundary. Once setup is complete, the dog is trained to interact with their new boundary and will be safely contained. Our dog fencing systems are safe to touch unlike electrified fencing!

Which containment fence is right for me?
The correct fence for your dog depends on a number of factors including the size of the desired boundary, your current physical fencing and your dog's breed, age, size and temperament. There is a suitable dog fence to cover any area from a small garden bed up to a 100 acre property and for all dogs from 2kgs upwards. Most modern dog fences have various collar options to suit multiple dogs of different sizes and also offer adjustable stimulation levels that can be set to match the dog's temperament and drive to escape.

How Does an Electric Dog Fence work?
An electric dog fencing system works by running a wire around your property that is connected to a transmitter. Your dog wears a fence collar that picks up a radio signal from this wire and warns the dog away from the correction zone you have set up. If your dog continues into the correction zone they will begin to receive static pulses from the containment collar until they leave the area. For a full rundown on how an electric dog fence works, view this article - How Containment Systems or Electric Dog Fences Actually Work.
What is the Right Dog Containment Fence for My Dog?
Selecting the correct dog containment system for your dog will depend on your dog's breed, age, size, temperament and your current fencing. This is to ensure you will have a dog feence that can handle the size and layout of the property and an appropriately sized collar with enough reach in stimulation to contain each of your dogs. For a closer look into the dog containment systems available, please view this guide - Making sure you Choose the Right Electric Dog Fence.
Do I Have to Bury the Electric Dog Fence Wire?
As with all dog containment fence systems or electronic dog fencing you can either bury your wire around the containment area, lay it above the ground (avoid mowing over it!) or attach it to your existing fences (if you have colourbond fences, please contact us prior to ordering your electric dog fencing system). If you would like some assistance with finalising your layout area, view this installation guide - Popular Dog Containment System Layouts.
Do I Have to Train My Dog to Use an Electronic Dog Fence?
Training your dog to understand the electric dog fencing is one of the most important parts of the initial setup. It's important for the dog to understand how they must react when their dog fence collar gives them a warning beep or correction. Completing the training will ensure that your dog is safely contained and understands where its new boundaries are. To learn more on the importance of dog containment fence training please view this article - Why do I Need to Train My Dog to Use an Electric Dog Fence?
How do I Train My Dog to Understand Electric Dog Fencing?
All electronic dog fencing kits will come with a comprehensive setup and training manual for you to work with and most dog containment systems will even include a training DVD to help you. If you would like to view our simple version of dog fence training, please view this article - Dog Fences...A Simple Training Guide.
Can My Dog Wear the Electronic Dog Fence Collar All the Time?
Your dog can comfortably wear the dog fencing collar for a maximum of 10-12 hours a day. Prolonged use can cause skin irritation and in some cases pressure necrosis. With training, most dogs will avoid the dog containment fence even when they don't have the collar on. If you have a particularly persistent dog that needs to wear the collar for longer periods, you can also consider the use of a 24 hour contact pad that allows longer, constant use - Surface Conductor Grid -24Hour Contact Pad.
