We have a small dog (under 15 lbs) and it works great to keep him in the yard. Yes, it takes some back ache to install the wire but once it's it you never have to worry about it again. The only disadvantage to it is having to watch what you put over the wire. I park a trailer on the edge of my yard, right over the fence. My dog has learned that if he jumps on the front end of the trailer he can run off the back before he gets hit. If I turn up the range to avoid it, he can get hit inside the house. Just make sure you leave 3-4 feet between the wire and anywhere you want your pets to be able to roam. 2 years later it is still running fine!

I had a dog get hit by a car last year and decided that was the last one. I didn't have money for an above ground fence so I chose this. Putting it in the ground is a lot of work, but with a couple of pick axes it's not too bad. Once I put this on the dog she tried walking past the flags and after she got hit it didn't take her long to figure out what was going on (I didn't go by the video, sorry, but hey it worked). I had the flags out for about a month and slowly took them away and she stays in the yard even after 4 months now and has learned exactly where it is. This is definitely a great buy to keep your dogs safe and have some peace of mind about them being in the yard. Only downside is I can't find a 3v battery for the collar, I haven't looked real hard though as it is still going strong after a few months.

I have 2 Chesapeke Bay retrievers, a pool as well as the back half of the property which isn't fenced. I'm curious, are the collars waterproof?. I really don't want to take the collars off the dogs when they want to play in the pool unless it's necessary.
I want to fence about 3 acres and figure I need about 1500 feet of wire to do that. Am I correct in understanding this comes with 500 ft of wire? Can I buy additional wire through you? How much would it cost?
I just used regular 14 gauge T-90 wire which comes in 1000' / 300m rollsand goes for about $50 from any electrical supply store. It has been working great for over a year for me even with splices that I have made in it. Just make sure the splices are completely waterproof or they will corrode and break.
Yes, this comes with 500 ft of wire, and we do sell additional wire. Item# 38-403-821-00 contains 500 ft./150m of burial grade wire, 50 flags, is compatible with PetSafe® or Innotek® in-ground fence systems, and is currently priced at $59.99. We also sell the wire by itself (no flags), Item# 38-403-822-00. It contains 500 ft./150m burial grade wire, is compatible with PetSafe® or Innotek® in-ground fence systems, and is currently priced at $41.99. To view these items, please search for "Innotek" on our website.
Yes, you can buy additional wire. The manufacturer sells rolls of 500' but I think any solid gauge wire would work. Price depends on where you buy it. Make sure you buy direct burial cable and any splices are water tight.
Yes, this collar does alert the dog with an audible sound. Three tone options are available from the hand-held transmitter: 1. Warning tone with stimulation 2. No warning tones 3. Warning tone with a one second delay prior to stimulation.
Yes, both Innotek and PetSafe electric fences work in yards of all sizes, regardless of layout. To see several different layout designs, I recommend visiting the website "Dog Fence DIY" at http://www.dogfencediy.com/installation/plan/ .
Yes. I surrounded an area about 50x120 and it works great. The range adjustment on the power unit controls the effective range of the wire, but my set up only reaches 2-3 feet from the wire and keeps my dog in 99% of the time.
That shouldn't be a problem. it just depends on how much room you want your dog to have. The range can be set from the switch as far as how close to the line the dog can get without being hit. I kept mine on a pretty high setting for a while and once she realized the boundaries I turned it down. Just make sure you round the edges or it will give the dog even less room in the corners.
Depending on your definition of "regular fencing wire" it is possible. Any small guage single conductor solid wire that is "direct burial" should work. If it is a non insulated wire, it could become rust or become corroded underground and stop working. But if you put the wire above ground and insulated it from the fence posts it should work either way.
