In-Ground Fence With A “Keep-Away” Zone
A “Keep-Away” Zone is an area of your property that you want your dog to stay away from. Sometimes Fido can become a little over-enthusiastic when the kid's are playing, or likes to dig up your vegetable garden. Your In-Ground Fence is just as capable of keeping your dog away from certain areas as it is at keeping him in your yard.
This example shows a whole yard enclosure, but it can also be used with the front-yard, back-yard, or barrier layouts. Just connect the twisted pair to the signal wire and run it to where you want the keep-away zone to start. Make sure there is a 6 feet minimum spacing between the edge of your zone and the signal boundary of the fence to prevent interference.
Keep-Away Zone Detail
Here we've zoomed in a little bit so you can see the detail. If you follow the signal wire at the top left of the following diagram, it connects to one side of the twisted pair via a splice. That wire carries it to the zone, where it connects to signal wire using another splice. The signal wire runs around the zone, and back to another splice to the other side of the twisted pair, and back to the signal wire, where it connects with another splice.
The example here shows a kid's play area, but you can use the method to keep your dog away from any part of your yard. You can add this type of zone to any any existing fence system, you would just need four (4) wire splices, one (1) spool of twisted pair wire, and one (1) spool of signal wire. You can add any number of zones to your system.
