Securing a Gate With a Dog Fence
Sometimes you don’t want to secure the entire perimeter, just a small section such as a gate. IN these cases using a full electronic fence system is more than you need. For example, Doug wants to secure his driveway, already having a fence for the rest of the property.
I have 3 acres and it is all fenced (traditional aluminum fence – about 5ft high). My dogs stay within the fenced area no problem except for the driveway where the gate has a 1.5ft gap at the bottom due to the gate being on a hill. My question is this: What product can I install to just keep the dogs away from the driveway gate. Optimally, a simple RF transmitter that would shock the dogs collar if it got within range of the gate. It is an automated gate, so I already have electricity out there. The dogs are smart, and they’ve learned to go under the gate – I need to stop them…
Innotek barrier looks like it would work, but it appears to be only for indoor application. I just want to keep the dogs away from the gate; I don’t need to bury cable around the perimeter of my property because I don’t have a problem except for the gate. Can you suggest anything?
A good option in those situations is to use the Pawz Away Rock.
The system take 4 D sized batteries so does not need to be near a power source. It is dual mode, so you can either use it in wireless mode and create a circular barrier, or you can run up to 150 feet of wire off the rock which should be enough to secure the gate area.
Instead of a full dog fence installation, you just need to place the rock in the center and run it in wireless mode, or place it off to one side and run a short loop across the driveway.
THe Rock is compatible withthe Innotek IUC-5100 and IUC-4100. It is about $100 including one collar, so is also a lot cheaper than a full system. The collars aren’t nearly as good as the Innotek collars, since the area be trained is so small, you can usually get away with them. And if you need something better, you can always upgrade to the Innotek IUC-4100 collars, although that negates most of the savings.
