The World's Most Advanced Wireless Dog Fence
Shape it to your yard with the Custom-Shape Havahart Wireless Dog Fence--the world's most advanced do-it-yourself, dog containment system. This is the first wireless dog fence that can form virtually any shape. Endless fence possibilities mean more safe space for your dog to roam. The size of the wireless dog fence can range from less than 1/2 acre up to 25 acres. With the ability to create 4 custom Exclusion Zones, you can keep your dog out of designated areas such as a large garden or pool.
Capable of containing up to 2 dogs, the system can be installed without any digging or professional installation. Simply place the 4 bases, which contain new breakthrough technology, in the 4 corners of your home and use the intuitive touch screen controller to set up, activate, and manage your fence with ease. Access the online Wireless Fence Tracker installation tool to view the location of your fence on your PC. In less than 2 hours, you can have your wireless fence up and running and begin training your dog.
Safety Made a Top Priority
With a safety shut-off for the correction cycle included as a standard feature, Havahart Wireless made the safety of your dog a top priority. With one tone-only and five different static correction levels, you can choose the correction level that is best for your dog. The correction cycle persists until the dog returns 10 feet back inside the Roaming Area or until the safety shut-off feature activates after 30 seconds. Unlike an underground wire fence, the Custom-Shape Wireless Dog Fence will not correct your dog for returning back into the Roaming Area.
Small, Flexible System
Each of the 4 bases is small and sleek to allow for ideal yet discrete placement in your home to maximize the Roaming Area of your dog. Unlike an underground wire fence, the system can be reconfigured to a different shape at any time if you alter the landscape of your property, and it can be taken with you if you move.
Digital Set-up and Digital Alerts
The easy-to-read touch screen Controller walks you through the set-up. Use the controller to record where you want your fence boundary and Exclusion Zones to lie and customize correction levels for up to 2 dogs in just a few simple steps. The controller also provides boundary breach and low collar battery alerts so that you can keep track of what is most precious to you.
Wireless Fence Tracker
The Wireless Fence Tracker installation tool is the world's first internet-based application that actually allows you to see the location of your fence boundary and Exclusion Zones on your PC. It is very helpful with testing the location of your wireless fence boundary. Simply visit HavahartWireless.com on your Windows-based computer to securely access the Wireless Fence Tracker.
Cutting Edge Technology Makes Constant Communication Possible
The Havahart wireless collar, controller and bases each contain a nanoLOC TRX 2.4 GHz transceiver chipset that enables constant communication between the components through radio signals. While other brands utilize similar technology, Havahart Wireless was able to push the nanoLOC TRX to a higher level of performance using NASA data filtering technology and some of its own complex math.
NASA filtering technology and a boost in strength to each of the bases allows each signal to better penetrate through walls and other material objects to communicate with the wireless collar. To avoid signal blockage from your dog, Havahart Wireless strategically placed the antennas inside the Collar strap. This ensures that the antennas can rest on the sides of your dog's neck and have enhanced communication with the system. Constant, reliable wireless communication between the Bases and the Havahart Wireless Collar enables the system to pinpoint the real-time location of your dog and determine whether your dog is inside or outside your fence boundary. Should your dog ever breach the fence boundary, he will not get corrected on the way back in because the system knows his location.
The complex math allows the system to form virtually any shape of fence boundary to contain your dog. It also allows you to create up to 4 custom-shape Exclusion Zones to keep your dog out of designated areas. Exclusion Zones must be a minimum of 12 feet by 12 feet in size and cannot be within 20 feet of the bases or fence boundary.
Additionally, the fence boundary and Exclusion Zones were designed to have a wider Trigger Zone to keep your dog safe inside the Roaming Area and away from danger. When your dog moves into a Trigger Zone, the Bases send a signal to the collar to tone or make a correction based on settings you have chosen. Exclusive Integrated Motion Sensor Technology was also added to conserve Collar battery life when the collar is not moving.

Succeeding with the Custom-Shape Wireless Dog Fence
To ensure you succeed with the Custom-Shape Wireless Dog Fence, you should be:

Training Your Dog: Program Overview
Proper training of your dog is the most crucial element to ensure the safe and successful operation of your Havahart Wireless Dog Fence. Below is an overview of the Havahart Wireless training program. It is important that you follow the Instruction Manual and complete the entire training process without skipping any phases. Proper training is your most valuable key to success.
- Keep your sessions short and frequent--approximately 15 minutes long, 2-3 times a day.
- Be firm, consistent and patient.
- End sessions with lots of playtime and praise.
- Have fun!
Preliminary Phase: Flag Awareness Training (Optional)
This phase allows your dog to become familiar and comfortable with the Training Flags. Your dog will wear the Havahart Wireless Collar, but the wireless electric dog fence should be turned off.
Phase 1: Passive Training (Days 1-3)
Set the Havahart Wireless Collar to Tone-only to introduce your dog to the Trigger Zone of the fence boundary (and Exclusion Zones if installed) and teach him to move away from the flags upon hearing the tone.
Phase 2: Active Training (Days 4-7)
Set the Havahart Wireless Collar to a low static correction level to help discourage your dog from going beyond the Trigger Zone.
Phase 3: On-Leash Distractions (Days 8-11)
Teach your dog to ignore distractions that might tempt him to go outside beyond the Trigger Zone.
Phase 4: Off-Leash Supervision (Days 12-15)
Similar to on-leash distraction training, this phase take things one step further by removing the leash. This phase will encourage your dog to move freely within the Roaming Area.
Phase 5: Dog Monitoring (Days 16 and Beyond)
Your dog should be comfortable within the Roaming Area and reluctant to cross into the Trigger Zone with or without distractions. You should keep an eye on your dog after completing the training and monitor his behavior. Further training may prove to be necessary. After three additional weeks of successful dog containment, you can begin to gradually remove the training flags by taking away every other flag, every few days.
Remember every dog is unique and may respond differently depending on age, size, temperament and ability to learn. Adjust your training accordingly.

Range - It uses the same technology as your 2.3 Ghz cordless phones. They do not go far. I could not fence in more than 1.5 acres. I was going for 5 acres
Antennae strength - after 25 trips around the property, I put on 9 DBi antennae's on the units, this made the 1.5 acres possible. There are no repeaters, and they do not allow for more than 4 base stations.
Terrain - It must be flat, with no obstructions - I have two out buildings, which the dogs could not go behind. I also have a 15 ft gradual drop to a creek. The shore of the creek cannot be "seen" by the fence. Trees and wooded areas are also a problem
Waterproof - The collars are not. The dogs like to play in the creek, which would destroy a $175 collar.
Batter Life - Battery life with active dogs is about 6 hours. I had to replace batteries at least twice a day
Inferior components. In the 1.5 years I have had the product, I had to replace two of the base stations, and all the collars twice.
The fence boundary zone fluctuates. When I started, it was advertised as 3 - 6 ft. It is now listed as 6-13ft wide. I hope your yard is not too small, because that is 13ft off every side
The strengths of the system are:
The support team for the product were outstanding. They were extremely responsive, and did a great job through my warranty period
The real time mapping I could pull up on the computer was interesting, and helpful to get to know the patterns of the dogs in the yard
The bottom line:
If you have inactive dogs, in a small flat area without a water feature or obstructions, this may be a viable product. I would suggest using an old cordless phone to test distances before purchasing the product. Personally, I am going to be trenching in a new system
Firstly, the box was all beaten up, with torn edges.
On opening the box, it was like someone dropped all components in it the same time and sealed it up badly, really quickly.
All wires were loose, flags were dirty and soiled, all smaller metal components were lose in the box and smaller bags were just stuffed in the bottom of the box, empty. None of the components were protected in bubble wrap bags (which were just there, lying at the bottom of the box). ZERO literature, no quick start guide, no manual.
To top it off, the dog collar had a big letter "M" written on it with a Sharpie - most probably from the previous owner.
What a joke being given this product for $800 - going right back.
This company has no idea how to treat a customer.
*** Note to company - WAKE UP! YOU'RE SELLING AN $800 PRODUCT!
