How Our Custom-Shape
Wireless Dog Fence Works

Custom-Shape Wireless Dog Fence

At Havahart® Wireless, your dog's safety is our top priority!


Havahart® Wireless offers the latest in wireless technology, which maximizes your dog's freedom and safety, while requiring minimal effort, investment and impact on your property.

Our Custom-Shape Havahart® Wireless Dog Fence keeps your dog safely within the boundaries you've set. This fence also features wireless technology utilized by NASA and includes safety features such as a correction time-out and in-home boundary breach alerts. These two elements, safety and technology, provide your dog with the largest containment area available on the market, giving your dog freedom to roam and play safely. This wireless dog fence contours to the unique shape of your property, capable of enclosing an area up to 25 acres.  





What is the Custom-Shape Wireless Fence?


Custom-Shaped Wireless FenceHistorically, wireless pet containment consisted of a circular (Radial) shape containment area. The problem with that is most yards are not circular. This leaves part of your yard unused and leaves your dog with a limited space in which to run.


The Custom-Shape Havahart® Wireless Dog Fence allows you to create a boundary that fits the unique contours of your property.

Optimal results allow the custom-shape wireless dog fence to reach up to 500 ft. in any direction without digging wires or incurring extensive installation costs.

In order to receive the best results, the fence boundary and the system bases must have an unobstructed direct line of sight. Meaning that no object (shed, or other building) can obstruct the signal between the bases and the fence boundary.

Custom-Shape Wireless Dog Fence Components:

The Custom-Shape Havahart® Wireless Dog Fence System has the following key components: a Wireless Collar, a Fence Controller, and 4 Bases



Wireless Controller

custom-shape touch screen fence controller


Featuring intuitive navigation, the Havahart® Wireless Fence Controller provides easy setup, activation and management of your Wireless Dog Fence.


This Controller communicates to the Bases, which in turn, broadcast the radio signal to the Havahart® Wireless Collar.


Because your dog's safety is our top priority. Our Wireless Fence Controller tracks your dog's every movement. More on that here. The Wireless Controller also notifies you through auditory alerts if:

  • Your dog goes outside of the Fence Boundary

  • There is a problem with any of the Fence components

  • The Battery life of the Collar is running low.

Your Fence setup begins by using the Wireless Fence Controller to communicate to each Base, adding them to the System. With the Controller in hand, walk the flag line around your property to record your Fence Boundary.

For full instructions, please refer to the full Havahart® Wireless Custom-Shape Wireless Fence Instruction Manual »


Custom Wireless Fence Bases



The Custom-Shape Wireless Dog Fence  features 4 Bases total: 1 Master Base and 3 additional Bases. The Bases are home to our state-of-the-art transceivers, which enable them to speak to each other and identify the exact location of your dog at all times in your yard. If your dog begins to venture close to the Fence boundary, the Bases communicate with the Collar to deliver a correction. This keeps your dog safe!

Havahart® Wireless Collar

Havahart Wireless Collar


The water-resistant Havahart® Wireless Collar includes a state-of-the-art radio transceiver with advanced antenna assembly built directly into the Collar Strap.


The Wireless Collar also features a rechargeable RCR123 Battery and two correction Probes.


The Custom-Shape Wireless Dog Fence has the ability to manage up to 2 Havahart® Wireless Collars simultaneously.


Fits Neck Sizes: 14 in - 26 in

Weighs: 4.2 ounces


The Havahart® Wireless Collar communicates multiple times per second with the Wireless Controller, allowing the Fence to monitor your dog's movement throughout the yard. ensuring your dog's safety.


The Collar can be programmed to Tone-Only (auditory correction) or one of 5 different Static correction levels.


What does Water-Resistant mean?


The Havahart Wireless Collar is water-resistant which protects your collar from light rain and splashing in puddles, but is unable to prevent damage caused by submersing the collar in water.



Collar Correction

Real-Time Tracking of Your Dog


We believe that you should be able to choose the level of correction that is best for your dog. 


Unlike competitive products, our Custom Fence allows you to select either a tone correction or a choice of 5 Static corrections. It is your dog, so you issue the correct you want.


If your dog reaches the Fence Boundary or an Exclusion Zone, the System will send a command to the Wireless Collar to take action to correct (Tone-Only or Static – based on user settings).


In order to keep your dog safe and reinforce training, the correction experienced on our Wireless Collar is not constant but is a repetitive pulse, to reinforce the corrective behavior not the static correction.


    The Wireless Fence Tracker


    This web-based application for your Custom-Shape Fence is designed to show you approximately where your Wireless Fence Boundary and Exclusion Zones are located in relationship to the Fence Bases.

    • This tool can be used by you or our consumer support team to troubleshoot potential problems in the Fence communication and Boundary.

    • Requirements for using the Wireless Fence Tracker include updated Java drivers, and high-speed internet connection. Additionally, you may need to download the latest USB drivers to your computer.

    • To access the Wireless Fence Tracker, log onto My Account and click Wireless Fence Tracker.

    • Click here for more tips on reading the Wireless Fence Tracker and troubleshooting potential problems.


    There are built-in safety features:


    The Collar’s safety time-out feature stops the correction cycle after 30 seconds. After the correction cycle times out, your dog will NOT be corrected for returning to the Roaming Area. The Collar will revert to the normal operating mode only when your dog is back inside the Roaming Area.



    Additional Safety Features

       The System is also equipped with the following additional features:

    • In-Home Boundary Breach Alert--Alerts you when your dog has breached the Fence Boundary.
    • Real Time Battery Status Monitoring--Communicates a low Battery signal on the Collar through the Wireless Controller.
    • Motion Sensor Technology--Conserves Battery life when your dog is not active.

    Wireless Fencing Definitions


    Here is a list of common terms used in defining Wireless Fencing products. 


    Roaming Area

    Roaming Area

       The Roaming Area of your Havahart® Wireless Dog Fence is the area of your yard surrounded by the Trigger Zone (or Fence Boundary) where your dog is free to safely roam and play.



    Trigger Zone (or Safety Zone)

       This area, which may be 6 to 13 feet wide, is located at the edge of the Roaming Area and is your line of defense, keeping your dog in your yard and safe. When your dog enters the Trigger Zone, the Wireless Controller communicates to the Wireless Collar to issue a correction. The correction can be set to Tone-Only (auditory alarm) or repetitive pulse (Static correction).


    The speed of your dog as he crosses the Trigger Zone will influence where the correction is delivered inside the Trigger Zone. The definition for the Trigger Zone is consistent for both the Havahart® Wireless Custom-Shape & Radial-Shape Wireless Fences.




    Exclusion Zones

    Exclusion Zones


       Have a pool, lake or garden on your property you want to keep your dog out of?


    One of the added features of our Custom-Shape Dog Fence are 'Exclusion Zones.'


    Exclusion Zones are a targeted area where you wish to restrict your dog’s access, such as a large garden, pool or patio. The Exclusion Zone must be at least 12' x 12'
    feet wide.


    An Exclusion Zone must be at least 20' from another Exclusion Zone, Fence Boundary or Base. Exclusion Zones are optional and may be added either during or after the initial installation process.


    Up to 4 Exclusion Zones can be created.





    All wireless communication has limitations. When the Fence Bases have an obstructed view of the Fence Boundary, the resulting shape of the containment area can bow or dip inward or form a jagged edge.


    This instance is called 'Attenuation'. Having attenuation in your Fence Boundary causes your Wireless Controller to not receive communication about where your Fence Boundary or Trigger Zone are.


    Attentuation can be caused by a number of objects, including aluminum siding, air conditioners and heavily wooded areas. The closer the obstructing object is to the Trigger Zone, the greater the interfering effect it can have. This could cause your Fence to work inconsistently from your intended use.


    Additionally, the more dense an obstructing object is (i.e. wooded area), the more severe the dip or shaping effect of the Trigger Zone. The Wireless Controller is unable to communicate the signal through the heavily wooded area.


    But remember: Just because you have an obstructing object doesn't mean a Wireless Fence is not right for your property, it will just change the intended shape of your Fence to enable the communication between the Wireless Controller and the Boundary.



    If you have a property with several attenuating objects, please contact us with your concerns and questions. We can help you decide which Fence is right for you and your dog.


    If a Wireless Fence is not the ideal solution for you, we have an underground dog fence that is able to work on any property type.

    Discover exactly how we keep your pet safe with our Wireless Dog Containment technology.




    The Custom-Shape Difference (What Sets Us Apart)




       In order to track exactly where your dog is at in the Roaming Area at all times, we employ trilateration.


    When radio signals are sent from the antennas of the Bases, they propagate in a spherical manner. When at least 3 Bases provide 1 common point of intersection, the Wireless Fence System is able to accurately pinpoint the real-time location of the Collar. Because each of the Bases is at the same relative height throughout the home, the intersection of the 3 spherical signals is known as trilateration.


    Event Stamp Mapping

       As the Controller moves along the flag line, the Master Base records each trilaterated point of your Wireless Fence, thereby memorizing the location of the entire Fence. This process of memorization is known as event stamp mapping. Similar to the way GPS technology works, event stamp mapping allows you to create a Wireless Dog Fence of virtually any shape and dimension. This groundbreaking technology changed the Wireless Fencing industry forever and allows your dog the freedom to roam about your entire property.


    Exclusion Zones

    Exclusion Zones

       The Custom-Shape Wireless Dog Fence System can create Exclusion Zones that are recorded inside the Roaming Area to keep your dog out of designated locations such as large gardens and pools.





    Trilateration, combined with event stamp mapping, enables the Custom-Shape Wireless Dog Fence to track the real-time location of your dog in relation to the Wireless Fence Boundary. This allows the System to know when your dog crosses into the Trigger Zone, deliver a correction and alert you of the breach.


    These enhancements provide an unparalled level of technical sophistication in the Wireless Dog Fence industy.
