Hear what our customers are saying about the Dog Fence DIY difference:
Installing the Innotek invisible fence supplied by Dog Fence DIY was relatively simple using the instructions supplied on your website and the instructions supplied with the kit. I rented a cable trencher (worth the rental fee in time saved) from a local rental shop which made laying the cable fast and easy. The only problem I encountered was unreeling the cable from the supplied spools. About midway through unreeling the wire off the spool, it snagged and broke the wire. I restarted the trenching and with a watchful eye on the spool, I avoided several more potential snags and resultant wire breaking. I buried all the single wire first, and then tested it with the twisted wire before burying it too.
My layout was a full perimeter around the house which meant crossing a sidewalk and driveway. Your suggestions of deepening a relief groove in the concrete worked fine with a concrete saw blade installed in my circular saw. Tunneling under the driveway with a pipe didn’t seem very practical. I cut deeper at the ends to recess the wire deep enough so my lawn edger wouldn’t cut the wire inadvertently. Caulk over the top keeps the wire in place and hides it well.
Overall the installation took me about 6 hours (over two days) with about half the time spent doing the final hand burial of the twisted wire near the garage and installing the control module and twisted wire inside the garage. I used a small diameter PVC pipe and fitting to conceal and protect the entry of the twisted wire into the garage.
I would recommend your website instructions to anyone willing to spend some time installing the system themselves. Like any other DIY project you get the satisfaction of a job well done along with saving some money. Of course having experienced instructions helps!
