We just purchased a home and are considering an in-ground pet containment fence for our three dogs. Our next door neighbor has a containment system installed in her yard (older, wired system) and I was wondering if her system will cause confusion and or cross-signals between the two systems. We share a driveway, with a seam in the middle of the two driveways, and we would want to utilize that seam to allow our dogs the ability to go from the front to the back on that side of the house.

ADMIN – Hi Whitney. Congratulations on your new home! What is the age, weight, breed and temperament of your three dogs? What is the size of your pet containment area? We recommend keeping 5-10 feet distance between the two different electric dog fence boundary wires to avoid interference problems. What is the model number of your neighbor’s invisible dog fence?

Do you have an upper age limit for a person adopting a dog?

ADMIN – Hi Chris. What kind of dog do you want to adopt? What state do you live in? Have you read our Adopting a Rescue Dog: The First Seven Days From Shelter to Home link? Do you already have an underground dog fence system?

Hello,
I have two small dogs, at 4.5 and 5 lbs each. Is there a collar small enough for them?
Thank you

If only wanting/needing correction feature for one of our three dogs, will the IUC-4100 collars work with the 5100 system?

ADMIN – Mike, Yes, those collars are compatible with the IUC5100. Note that the part number has changed to PIG00-13620.

Hi,
I have an existing electric fence surrounding my yard site to keep livestock out of the yard. Will this electric fence cause interference problems with the wired dog containment fence that I plan to install around the same yard perimeter as my existing livestock control electric fence?
Thanks,
Scott Morrison

Admin- Hi Scott,
The cattle fence will not interfere with the dog fence system as long as you do not zip tie the two wires together (so just as long as they do not touch). We have found that attaching the boundary wire to an existing fence to be very effect and helps solve most containment issues very quickly.

I twisted my wire too much, about 40 twists per foot. Can I still use this or should I twist another length?

ADMIN – Hi Marjie,

That will still work.

I would like to attach a portion of the wire to an existing wire property fence. Will it work? How high off the ground can the wire be?

ADMIN – Hi Kelly,

You can attach the boundary wire to a fence and it will work well. You can set the wire up to work at almost any height, you will just need to increase the boundary width at the control box so that the signal still reaches ground level. The perfect height is around the height of the dog’s head, but any height will do. It is generally a good idea to place the wire at least one-foot above the ground if you use a weedeater to keep the wire safe from damage.
