How It Works
Our pet fencing systems consist of a small boundary wire, usually buried 3″- 5″ beneath the surface around the perimeter of the zone you want your pet contained to. This wire is connected to a transmitter, which sends a unique signal to the buried wire. When your pet nears the boundary wire, their receiver collar will alert them with a gentle correction, warning them away from off-limits zones and helping them stay out of harm’s way.
Your pet will be fitted with a receiver collar – this collar is what warns dogs or cats away from pet-free zones, by first emitting an audible warning beep and/or then a gentle tickle pulse. Properly trained pets usually only need the audible beep to steer away from the boundaries, though they may test them from time to time.
Below are our most popular underground pet fencing layouts, but we can customize the fence boundary layout if necessary – we can also make flower beds, pools, ponds, and other landscaping elements off-limits to your pets.
The Perimeter Layout is the most common and encompasses both your front yard and backyard. Your pet can move between the yards, allowing them maximum freedom and exercise space.
Another popular layout, the Hourglass Layout is almost like a full perimeter, but note how the sides are pinched in – this means that in order to move from the front yard to backyard (or vice versa), your pet will have to go through the house.
Double Loop Layout
The Double Loop protects the front OR back yard only, which leaves part of your property unprotected from escape. We usually only install this layout if your property’s geography prevents the installation of a full perimeter or hourglass layout.
Small yards are no problem at all for Pet Stop® technology. Our boundary fences offer settings to create a one-sided signal zone around the perimeter wire in order to maximize the amount of yard your pet can enjoy.
