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

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.
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 .
