I own two dogs and have used an older solution for many years. This solution was reasonably priced and very easy to install. The ability to adjust the width of the signal field and the intensity level of the correction combined with the rechargeable collars places this solution far above older technologies which do not give the dog owner these options. The only issue that I have discovered is that there is a small area in my kitchen which causes the collars to deliver the correction. The kitchen is nowhere near the buried wire so, at this point, I am forced to remove the collars each time the dogs enter the house.
Fence Wire - The fence wire must make a continuous loop around your property for your system to operate. 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 emit a constant red indicator.
"The wire should be buried approximately 4-6 inches into the ground, or deep enough to protect it from being damaged by any machinery or dug up by your dog. (The wire does not have to be buried in order to work.)"
CAUTION - Before you install your fence wire, contact the utility company to mark the utility lines on your property before you begin digging. Be sure to test your wire layout above ground before permanent installation begins.Carefully choose the areas in which you want to contain your dog. A diagram may be helpful in predicting unforeseen obstacles. (Please refer to the diagrams below.)
When creating a Front Boundary Only, Fence Front Yard Only, or Front Boundary with Existing Fence type of e-fence system, THE TWO PARALLEL E-FENCE WIRES MUST BE 6-10 FEET APART to avoid any signal interference.
*Please note, the diagrams are not drawn to scale. Single loop systems must keep 6-10 feet of distance between the wires as well.
Front Boundary Only
Fence Front Yard Only
Front or Back Access
Basic Loop with Garden
Front Boundary with Existing Fence
Double Loop with Passage
Keep wires ~ 6ft. apart to avoid signal interference.
The Dogtra eF-3000 Gold system includes 500 feet of boundary wire and 50 training flags. Additional flags and wiring can be purchased through the Dogtra Company. See below for flag + wire buying guide. Additional Parts The figures above are indicated for a rectangular layout. Actual flag/wire requirements may vary depending on the layout you've chosen.
Finding a Wire Break Using an RF Choke
You will need a 100 µH RF Choke and an AM radio tuned to AM530. Go to the wall mount transmitter and disconnect the two boundary wire leads from the RED connector tabs. In place of each boundary wire lead, connect one end of the RF Choke. Next, take the two boundary wire leads and reconnect them into the RED connector tab. Turn up the transmitter signal strength to full (RED on the field width adjustment knob). Take the radio (tuned to approx. AM530 on the dial) with the volume turned up. Walk slowly along the path of the boundary wire while holding the radio directly over the boundary wire close to the ground as possible. You should hear a whirling/static noise where the boundary wire is intact and no whirling noise where the break is located.
Fixing the Break
Once you have found the break, cut out the damaged area and use a weatherproof gel style wire splicer to reconnect the wires. If the break is large, or if you cannot identify the break location, you may need to splice in some extra wire to bypass the area that is damaged.
