In-Ground Dog Fence: Planning A Deterrent Installation

Not just for forming enclosures, your In-Ground Pet Fencing System can be used as a deterrent only, to keep your dog away from sensitive areas of the yard. We'll show you a couple of options for laying out a two-zone deterrent.

1. Twisted pair connects through signal wire. 2. Twisted pair connects together.

Theses are explained in detail below. Near the bottom of this page, is a table comparing the the options.

Things To Know

  • Transmitter: box of electronics that generates and transmits the signal down the fence wires. Two terminals, one send and one receive. The wire has to form a complete loop from the send to the receive terminals.
  • Twisted Pair Wire: a pair of separately insulated wires twisted together. Carries the fence signal from A to B, but will not broadcast that signal to your dog's collar. Not always required, depending on your transmitter location and layout.
  • Signal Wire: single insulated wire that forms the fence boundary and will broadcast the fence signal to your dog's collar.
  • Splices: T-shaped devices that connect together the fence wires - one splice, one wire.
  • Loop: the wire must form a continuous loop from the send to the receive terminal of your transmitter.

If you need a more detailed review of how to connect together your electronic pet fencing system, please go here to read our overview.

Deterrent Layout #1: Twisted Pair Connects Through The Signal Wire

This example shows the twisted pair wire connecting to the transmitter and running out to the kid's play area. Then one side of the twisted pair joins the signal wire (top splice on the left), runs around the kid's play area, then connects to one side of another twisted pair wire. This twisted pair then runs from here out to the vegetable garden, connects to the signal wire, loops around the vegetable garden, and back down the other side of the twisted pair. It then joins a short length of signal wire, and returns to the transmitter down the other side of the first twisted pair wire.

So this is a loop from the transmitter, around the kid's play area, out to and around the vegetable garden, back to the kid's play area and then back to the transmitter. Only the red signal wire transmits the signal to your dog's collar.

In-Ground Dog Fence Deterrent Layout Example #1

Deterrent Layout #2: Twisted Pair Connects Together

This is the same as the previous, the only difference is that we've eliminated the short piece of signal wire between the two twisted pair wires, connecting one wire of the twisted pair to a splice. You can do this if the distance between the twisted pair wires is very short - 18", or less.

The differences between the two layouts above are not easy to spot, so they're shown below .

Frequently Asked Questions About Deterrents

  • How many of these zones can I use? You can install as many as you need. Just make sure the wiring maintains the continuous loop.
  • Why do I need the twisted pair wire? Twisted pair wire will not transmit the signal to your dog's collar, so the only part of the fence that will broadcast to your dog's collar will be the exact area that you want to contain.
  • How close together can I put the zones? To avoid interference, the zones have to be kept at least 6 feet apart.
  • Will this layout help keep my dog in the yard? Not as these are configured, but it is possible to enclose an area and have deterrent zones. Click here to see the zone + enclosure layout.
