Hear what our customers are saying about the Dog Fence DIY difference:
As previous owners of a dog fence installed by Invisible Fence Co. we were sold on the benefits of this technology. Once properly trained (which is critical) our dog left the yard only once chasing a rabbit. He stopped on the other side and waited for someone to bring him back (the training worked). After that early incident, he never left the yard again in 4 years. With collar on we probably could have shut down the power and not had to worry. Subsequently, when moving to our new home in NC we chose an underground fence as the best method to contain our dog. Since the budget did not allow for the cost of having Invisible Fence install the system, and with our prior experience, we chose owner installation. The dogfencediy website was easy to navigate and very informative. Prices were exceptional for everything we needed to do our own installation. With our dog already trained, there was little to do but re-acquaint him with the fence.
The shipment arrived within days of ordering and included the extra wire and hold-down brackets to completer the job. We have nearly an acre and decided to bury the line in the grassed areas and lay it on top of ground in the rear wooded portion of the lot. We trenched using a lawn edger, which allowed burial to a depth of approximately 2-3”. That was more than enough in the lawn areas and in most of the wooded areas we could trench. Where root systems were a hindrance we anchored it on the ground and covered with leaves and debris. We have had no trouble with deer or other critters here in Central North Carolina.
The DIY folks were extremely helpful when we had questions and helped guide us to the best items for our situation. We now have a functioning dog fence for a fraction of the cost of hiring an installation company ($400 vs. $2500-3000)
