Below you will see various example layouts that you can use as a guide on how to install your electric dog fence system.
All layouts follow the basic "looping" design as the systems require a complete loop to be effective.
The signal is delivered from the terminal of the transmitter, through the fence wire, back to the other terminal on the transmitter. When this is accomplished, the wire continuity light will light up.
In these 3D examples you can clearly see how the wire begins with in the garage area.
The wire then comes out to the perimeter in a straight line. Once at the perimeter,
the wire continues its loop until it reaches a secondary enclosure area. In this case,
a swimming pool and a garden are both off limits to the dogs. Once the loop is completed around
the secondary enclosure area, the perimeter loop continues until it has made a full circle back
around to the perimeter entry point and then to the transmitter.
Basic Front Boundary Only Useful for blocking a dangerous area such as a busy street.
Front Yard Boundary This setup will keep your dog confined to the front yard. This setup also works for the back yard.
Entire Yard Boundary This setup will enclose both the front and back yards. This may or may not be your entire property.
Entire Yard Boundary + Secondary Area This setup will enclose both the front and back yards and a secondary enclosure area. In this case a garden.
