The Transmitter transmits the low frequency radio signal through the wire loop around the boundaries you choose. The Transmitter can be attached to a wall or shelf in a shed or garage. It is attached to the transformer which plugs into a normal 110-volt AC outlet. The Loop tuner dial indicates that the radio signal is being transmitted. The Red Loop Signal Light indicates whether or not there is a break in the pet fence wire. The green light indicates that the power is connected to the system. The Range Dial, which is adjustable, sets the correction zone (the distance between the boundary flags and the final boundary wire).
The 12-volt transformer plugs into the 110-AC outlet and the Transmitter is used to ensure that the correct low power is available to the system.
14-gauge Direct Burial boundary wire forms the wire loop to carry the radio signal of the pet fence.
Small blue flags are installed to give your dog a visible reference for the boundary created by the wire loop. These are especially necessary for the initial pet fence training period.
The Receiver Collar
The patented 360' Omni Directional Receiver is a tiny box (about 2 oz.) that is comfortably worn by your dog on a collar around his neck. It is extremely accurate and consistent and operates on a 7.5 or battery which could last up to 6-8 months with normal use. The nylon collar is adjustable and should be adjusted to have the quick-snap buckle exactly opposite the receiver. This is the most important part of the Freedom Fence system because it is responsible for giving your dog the warning tone as he approaches your property line. If the dog proceeds, it delivers a mild electrical correction. Once trained, your dog will learn not to attempt to leave your yard.
New Micro Receiver Collar has been developed and is now available for small dogs in the Stamford, CT; Waterbury, CT; Darien, CT; Greenwich, CT; Danbury, CT; and Westport, CT areas.
Special features and benefits
Things to Keep in Mind
In the area of Stamford, CT; Waterbury, CT; and Katonah, NY, we are no strangers to snow. Snow Piles from shoveling or plowing may impact the performance of your Freedom Fence. To maintain peak performance of your Freedom Fence System, we suggest that you do not pile the snow on your Freedom Fence boundary line. This can create an exit path for your dog if the snow is piled higher than your Freedom Fence signal field.
In most cases your Freedom Fence System is set to activate at least six to eight feet from the line - both width and height; this will depend on the breed and size of your dog. If the snow pile is higher than the signal field set, you may have to remove some of that snow to keep your dog within his boundaries.
We recommend that you periodically test your Freedom Fence in good weather and bad. Check the system by holding the collar with the battery cover facing you, holding it at knee level and walking up to the boundary wire and listening for the audible tone.
Check the fit of your dog's Freedom Fence collar. The collar should be snug; you should be able to fit your finger between your dog's neck and one of the collar posts. The collar should be worn as high up on your dog's neck as possible. Many dogs gain some weight in the winter months. Some dogs will also grow a thicker coat to prepare them for the colder temperatures. Both of these can make the Freedom Fence collar to tight and possibly cause your dog's neck to become irritated.
The Freedom Fence Receiver is water-resistant
(it is not to be submerged). If your dog swims or gets wet, remove the collar and dry his neck before you put the collar back on him. Make sure that the prongs and the battery cover are tight as not to allow water to seep into the circuit board and damage the receiver.
If you’re planning to move into a new home, don't forget your Freedom Fence System.
You can take the transmitter and collar with you. Contact us about having new boundary wire and flagging installed; setting the dog's new boundaries and training him to them.
Notes: Animal experts and behaviorists, dog trainers and veterinarians in Stamford, Waterbury, Katonah and the surrounding areas all give the Freedom Fence Dog Training System their approval. This pet fence method of training is both effective and humane.
