The Black line is the Containment Wire
The Orange Loops represent Twisted Wire


 

Basic Containment System Layout

 




    This is the most common containment system layout where the wire is either attached to a fence or in the ground around  the property to ensure the dog is safely contained within the boundary.

 

 

 

 

Single Boundary Fence Containment Layout



 

 


This containment system layout is for if you need to stop your dog from leaving a single boundary.
Please note the loop on your boundary must be at least 1.5m apart to ensure the zone is still active.

 

 

 

 

Single Loop Back Yard Or Front Yard Only Layout



 

 

 


This containment system layout is used to contain your dog to either the back or the front of your yard.




 

 

 

 

Single Loop With Internal Zones





This containment system layout is still a single loop layout however as the wire is being laid around the boundary you enter the yard and loop the pool/garden before returning to the boundary.
The wire is twisted between the garden/pool and the boundary to ensure the dog can pass in between the two but is not able to get out of the boundary or into the garden/pool







 

 

Hour Glass Containment Layout Or Dual Zone Containment Layout






This containment system layout is great for if you want a dog kept in a certain area at different times. This layout is also good for if you have a dog that is escaping through your side fences.
Please note the wire forming the loop next the house must be at least 1.5m apart to ensure the zone is active.







 

Double Loop Front Back Containment Layout



This containment system layout is great if you only want 3 sides of your property, if you have an obstacle that the dog cannot pass or if you have a gate or passage under the house that you want the dog to have access to.
Please note the distance between the 2 wires of the loop must be at least 1.5m apart to ensure the zone is active.








 

Three Side Double Loop Containment Layout





This containment system layout is great for if you only require the containment system on 3 sides of your property.
This allows you to run the containment system around the boundary in a double loop formation to allow the dog access to a certain area.
Please note the distance between the 2 wires of the loop must be at least 1.5m apart to ensure the zone is active.





 

Two Side Boundary Containment Layout





This containment layout is usually used if there is not sufficient physical fencing to contain the dog on two of the boundaries of the property.
Please note the distance between the 2 wires of the loop must be at least 1.5m apart to ensure the zone is active.
