Fence Free Underground Dog Fence Example Property Layouts

 

Unlike their wireless counterparts, an underground dog fence allows you to create a containment area free from signal interruptions and attentuation. Since you are burying a physical wire as opposed to a wireless boundary, having a direct line of sight between the base and the boundary is not required.

Below are some example property types of successful underground dog fence installations and some unsuccessful properties.

Successful Layout for a Underground Dog Fence


Successful Layout #1

Good Layout 1

 

Why this layout works:

  • Fence Boundary >20 ft. from fence controller, road, and neighboring houses
  • Tree line is >5 ft. from fence boundary

Good Layout #2

Good Layout 2


Why this layout works:

  • Fence Boundary >20 ft. from fene controller, road, and neighboring houses
  • Fence Boundary >5 ft. from large trees

 

Good Layout #3

Layout 3

 

Why this layout works:

  • Fence Boundary >20 ft. from fence controller, road, and neighboring houses
  • Fence Boundary >5 ft. from large trees

 

Good Layout #4

Good Layout 4

 

Why this layout works:

  • Fence Boundary >20 ft. from fence controller, road, and neighboring houses
  • Fence Boundary >5 ft. from the group of trees

 


 

 

UNSUCCESSFUL Layouts for an Underground Dog Fence

 

Bad Layout #1

bad layout 1

 

Why this layout will NOT work:

  • Wooded areas (Red line on top) prevent the signal from communicating a consistent containment area. The wireless signal communicated from the fence controller needs a direct line of sight with the fence boundary in order to provide a consistent boundary. An inconsistent boundary could cause random corrections to your dog from the collar.

What product will work with this layout?

  • Havahart® Fence Free Underground Dog Fence would be the ideal solution for this property layout and would require digging of the boundary wire. 

 

Bad Layout #2

Bad Layout 2

 

 

Why this layout will NOT work:

  • Wooded areas (Red line) prevent the signal from communicating a consistent containment area. The wireless signal communicated from the bases needs a direct line of sight with the fence boundary in order to provide a consistent boundary. An inconsistent boundary could cause random corrections to your dog from the collar.
  • If you were to exclude the wooded area, the fence boundary would be too small and would not provide a safe containment area for your dog and could lead to random corrections of your dog from the collar.

What product will work with this layout?

  • Havahart® Fence Free Underground Dog Fence would be the ideal solution for this property layout and would require digging of the boundary wire.

 

Bad Layout #3

Bad Layout 3

 

Why this layout will NOT work:

  • Wooded areas (Red line) prevent the signal from communicating a consistent containment area. The wireless signal communicated from the bases needs a direct line of sight with the fence boundary in order to provide a consistent boundary. An inconsistent boundary could cause random corrections to your dog from the collar.
  • If you were to exclude the wooded area, the fence boundary would be too small and the fence boundary would be too small and would not allow a consistent containment area to be established. This could result in random corrections to your dog from the collar.

What product will work with this layout?

  • Havahart® Fence Free Underground Dog Fence would be the ideal solution for this property layout and would require digging of the boundary wire.

 

Bad Layout #4

Bad Layout 4

 

Why this layout will NOT work:

  • The fence boundary is encroaching onto the neighboring property. (Red line on top)
  • Wooded areas (Red line on bottom) prevent the signal from communicating a consistent containment area. The wireless signal communicated from the bases needs a direct line of sight with the fence boundary in order to provide a consistent boundary. An inconsistent boundary could cause random corrections to your dog from the collar.

What product will work with this layout?

  • Havahart® Fence Free Underground Dog Fence would be the ideal solution for this property layout and would require digging of the boundary wire
