Basic In-Ground Pet Fencing System
You cherish your pet and she loves her freedom. But, you worry her curiosity will soon lead her too far from home or into traffic. You need an inexpensive fencing option to keep her in your yard, and the Basic In-Ground Pet Fencing System does just that. With the ability to cover up to 5 acres of property, this do-it-yourself system will help you train your dog to stay within the boundary area you set for her.
Installing your system:
With one free weekend, you can design a custom fence to meet your dog’s and your needs. It helps to sketch out your plans on paper before you begin installation. Then, mount the transmitter to a flat, dry surface. Next, lay out the wire in the yard where you would like to keep your dog. Connect the two ends to the transmitter...
Once you have the wire as you would like it, and it is properly connected to the system, follow the instructions and power up the system. After setting up the collar, test by walking your pet’s receiver collar in multiple locations to ensure system is functioning properly. Twisting the boundary wire cancels the signal and allows your pet to cross over that area without receiving a correction. After all areas are tested, carefully dig and bury the wire. Use a flat shovel and dig 1-3 inches deep at a 45 degree angle. After you have buried the wire, set up boundary flags as a reminder for your pet while you are training her to the system.
The Transmitter sends a radio signal through the wire. The wire works as an antenna to signal the Receiver Collar, which your pet wears. Your pet hears a tone as she approaches the wire, and will feel a harmless yet startling static correction if she continues to it. This deters your pet from crossing the boundary. In the beginning, the boundary flags can provide a visual “fence” for your pet to see where the boundary is.
Training your pet:
After you install your system, you can easily train your pet to the system on a leash until you feel comfortable letting her roam freely, plan to complete two to three training sessions every day. They should last about 10 to 15 minutes each. Depending on your pet, it may take up to two weeks for your pet to become fully acclimated to the system. Once she does, you’ll likely find your pet has become more confident and enjoys the freedom the fence provides.

BUT, the collars work for weeks, then stop, regardless of fresh batteries. Gets pretty frustrating, because sometimes the first warning you get is your dog going off the reservation. Now I'm on a weekly testing schedule.
Oh, and the metal nubs sometimes manage to work themselves loose, so I'm making sure those are tight as well.
Definitely not a system for those who want to "set it and forget it".
I downgraded to one star. Even on a weekly testing schedule, these were unreliable enough that the dogs got out numerous times. I replaced the collars six times since buying them, making the system three times as expensive (each collar is at least $50, and no, I don't have time to wait for the collar to be "fixed" by Innotek).
Maybe I should have watched the DVD and trained the dogs first but now that they got a small taste of what the collar can do... they stay away from the parameter and I saved weeks worth of training. If they ever get smart and figure out that the collar only beeps I'll put on the conductive contacts and they learn a lesson again.
Just in case anyone is wondering... I tried the collar on around my forearm (with the conductive contacts) and the shock is not painful. It made my muscle jump almost like a small muscle spasm but it was not painful. I would feel safe putting this collar on my kids but my they refuse to test it out and my wife would kill me..
We have an acre and a half and the signal does not get weak anywhere.
After having installed for about 3 months it quit working. I tried everything, thought the wire got cut, later assumed it was from a storm we had. Could not get product replaced.
Even before it quit working, my dogs (which are high energy stock border collies), would pace back and forth and let it beep so long until the batteries wore down!! Not great if you have dogs too smart for their own good. They wanted past, they found a way past.
Really disappointed in this product b/c I had high hopes for it.
I ended up borrowing a shock collar and shocking them any time I seen them out of the yard. They now do not leave my yard and its no thanks to this product!!
I called customer service and after lots of questions 20 minutes later I was told I needed a new transformer. They then had me email me receipt for purchase which I did. But BECAUSE I PURCHASED IT ON AMAZON "WE CAN NOT VERIFY YOUR VENDOR" AND THEY REFUSED TO REPLACE IT. THEN AMAZINGLY I WHEN I SAID OK I'LL JUST PAY FOR A REPLACEMENT, THEY SAID NO THAT WAS AGAINST THEIR POLICY!!! SO I AM STUCK C NO WAY TO FIX THE PROBLEM!!
I have a large boxer that would just tear thru my backyard ripping my palm trees to shred, chew on the wood legs to my porch, eat my garden and flowers, chewed up my solar lights, and everything in between.
I spent money on training, I started taking him on longer walks, bought a doggy backpack and put water and weights in it when walking him to help wear him out, I spent even more time with him...... I truly felt like I was doing everything I could do. Finally I purchased my 6 year old a trampoline for her birthday. Spent several hours putting it together. Let the dog outside to go to the bathroom. I walked away for a split second to get my daughter to surprise her for her birthday and the trampoline was shredded! I finally started looking at fencing and came across this product. Was really nervous about shocking him - cause I felt it was wrong for so long. But I am here to say this is the best thing EVER!
We followed the directions exactly as there were stated. Watched the video ... took the time to train him and teach him to not cross the white flags. He got shocked two times and now he will not cross! No matter what. He is calm... relaxed... Being able to place the wire and create our own layout for the backyard was perfect. We were able to create a huge space for him but restrict him from the trampoline, flowers, trees.
This product is amazing and the shock doesnt hurt him... He has the same reaction as if I had him leashed up and pulled on it to pull him back. He just stops and turns around.
I will state that if the dog is a large dog and is running (like my boxer - very fast) they can run right thru it and wont even notice the shock. But I feel thats why it is important to train them and spend tme with them to teach them.
Over all this product is amazing for my family!
