Your bases should now be properly oriented on the wireless fence tracker. As you look at your computer screen the orientation of the bases may look different than what you would expect. However, the bases should all be in the correct position relative to one another. Your on screen layout may make more sense once you have recorded your fence.

- Base B will always appear directly to the right of the master base A on the horizontal bold line.
- Bases C will always be positioned clockwise from base B.

Reading the Wireless Fence Tracker Information
When viewing the WIreless Fence, the Fence Boundary will be displayed in green. The blue circles track your controller and should closely, but not perfectly overlay the green line where your recorded the fence.
Trigger Zone Imperfections:
It is normal for your Trigger Zone to have some imperfections as shown in the image above. Although you might think you are walking straight, the Trigger Zone could show a jagged edge. This does not affect the operation of the fence and will still maintain a safe boundary.
It is also normal to see small loops in your Fence Boundary. These will not cause a problem in the operation of your fence and will still create a safe containment area for your dog. However, you will see to make sure the flags are moved to the proper psition to compensate for the unintended loop.
Areas cut off are common in areas in which attentuation is present. Attenuation can be caused by air conditioning units, sheds, dense trees, heavy landscaping, or any other area which prevents the communication of signal from the base to the fence boundary. Cut-off areas do not prevent you from creating a safe containment area, however, you must adjust the flags to compensate for the unintended issue.
Fence Boundary/Exclusion Zone Line Color Meanings:
- Green: Your dog is within the Roaming Area.
- Red: Your dog has breached the Fence Boundary or an Exclusion Zone.
- Yellow: Your dog has breached the Fence Boundary and the correction cycle has timed out after 30 seconds.
