Step 1 Design your fence:
Have the local utility companies mark your underground lines. On a sheet of paper, draw your house and yard. Draw a line around your property that represents the containment area for your dog.
Step 2 Install the wall-mount transmitter:
Most people find that the inside of an exterior wall of a garage or basement is ideal. From the sample layouts included, you can see the twisted wire running from the house attaches directly to the transmitter.
Step 3 Layout the fence wire:
Run the containment wire around the property as outlined in your plan.
Step 4 Final connections:
Splice the containment loop wires to the twisted wire using the supplied waterproof splices. Connect the other end of the twisted wire to the wall-mount transmitter. Plug the AC adapter, connect it to the transmitter and turn it on. The red light should illuminate on the transmitter indicating a successful loop.
Step 5 Power Up:
Install batteries positive side out as shown.
Step 6 Test your fence:
Set your FIELD WIDTH ADJUSTMENT KNOB to the number 2 position. Using the supplied test light, walk the dog’s collar up to the fence wire. Listen for the warning tone and look for the test light to light. Try a number of different places around the fenced area, in order to verify the range is consistent.
Step 7 Bury fence wire:
Dig the trench 1"-3” deep with a flat edge spade. Or, it is faster to use a gaspowered edger. Digging the trench at an angle helps keep the wire in the ground as you place it. Place Flags at edge of selected boundary field, where the warning tone is first heard – NOT at the wire.
Step 8 Train your dog
Follow the training steps outlined in the Training and Troubleshooting Guide. You may see your dog respond immediately to the training, however continue to follow the Training Guide to fully train your dog. The convenience that your new fence offers, plus the added safety for your dog are well worth the time invested.
