Basic In-Ground Fencing System Extra Collar, 2.5 oz
This is our 3rd fence. First was ordered 25 years ago from France, finally replaced with this model a while ago. This fence saved my York ie - poos lufe. She was attacked by a coyote, they got to the fence she got shocked so did the coyote, it dropped her. We will always have one of these.

Easy to install even with large perimeter
I purchased this fence on Monday, received it on Thursday, installed it on Saturday. With a perimeter of about 2 1/2 acres, it installed EXACTLY as the instructions stated. We rented both a walk - behind trencher and a concrete saw. The wire is submerged in an asphalt driveway. We also installed it over a creek and back again, running the wire through PVC pipe using a zig zag pattern to get across a 16 foot span. The most difficult part of the job was filling in the trench with purchased soil, as there wasn't enough to put back in because of such dry conditions. The ONLY hitch we ran into was that we cut our internet wire, even though we called JULIE to come mark. The wire was only buried about 1" deep. The internet was fixed within a few days with no problem. I recommend you reading the instructions thoroughly before you begin. I also watched several YouTube videos on how to install an invisible dog fence. While researching, you will find you learn several little hints to help you. We installed the fence along with a neighbor, so our five dogs can play together. Each dog reacts differently to the boundary, some learning faster and needing less training than others. The dogs now have the freedom to run and play as they wish. It is a joy to watch our furry children love being outdoors.

Best decision I ever made
For starters, I have never used an invisible fence system before and was kind of actually against them. I live on 2+ acres and I have sheep and chickens next door, so when I got my new puppy I decided to give it a try so I could keep her in the yard. Don't be fooled, this product actually allows your dog to be a dog and is not constantly zapping your pooch. If you follow the instructions with regards to training, your dog will pick up on it super quick. My 4 month old puppy picked up on it in about a day and has only been zapped twice in 3 months, and that was only on day one. Now I have to admit, I was a bit nervous about "introducing" her to the shock, but it isn't that bad. The flags really work too - after day one, If my puppy saw one of the flags, she would go the other direction. Now she's happy because she has 2 acres to run around in and I'm happy because I don't have to be a hawk and constantly watch her. Allowing your dog to explore on their own really lets them be a dog... I am totally for this system.
- FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS. Don't rush the introduction process - they have steps to follow over a course of a week or two that eases the dog into it using flags and audio signals.
- I used a trencher that a rented from my local tool rental place for $40. I did just under 2 acres in a couple hours. If you rent one of these trenchers, it makes the job super easy.
- Just for reference: for just under 2 acres, I purchased 2 extra spools of wire for a total of 1,500 feet. I probably had 300 feet left when I was done.
- Hooking the wires up to the unit is a breeze. If you have ever put speaker wire into the back of a speaker, that I the exact same system they use... could not be easier.
