After you have selected a dog fence system consider what options you might need for your particular geographic are if durability and longevity are a concern we recommend heavier duty dog fence wire than the manufacturers package in most kits. Most of the manufacturers package the kits with a very low grade 20 guage wire Flexpetz.com sells a much heavy grade plastic coated wire that you would get if you had a professional company install the fence for you. Lighting strikes can be a commonly associated problem with electric dog fence systems, many underground fence kits also come with low grade surge protection or no surge protection at all we sell heavy duty dog fence surge protector if you live in a high prone lighting area you defiantly want to consider a dog fence surge protector or a professional grade dog fence surge protector.
The easiest and most successful installations all start with a good plan! Making a quick sketch of your property and where you would like your dog to have access (or not) will go a long way to speeding your installation. Consult our Planning Guide section for layout suggestions as well as pitfalls to avoid.
Once you have planned your layout choose your method of installation. You can bury the line with a machine or by hand, attach the wire to an existing physical barrier, or even use garden staples to tack your wire to the ground.
The installation process is a simple DIY project. Our Flexpetz Installation Guide has all the info you need to successfully install and set up your system as well as helpful tips and suggestions from the pros.
The most important part of the process is proper training. You and your dog need to be confident that he will stay in your yard in all scenarios. You will need a long leash and meat or moist dog treats to get started. We recommend two, short (10-15 minute), training sessions a day for approximately two weeks to ensure safe containment.
You’ll spend the first week showing your dog his new boundary vs. the street, your neighbor’s yard, etc. You’ll spend time establishing the area your dog is to stay in to be sure she learns the entire perimeter. The second phase of training involves using distractions to ensure your dog is able to handle himself in everyday situations. We recommend doing training sessions when distractions are present. Common distractions include cars, children, bikers, and joggers.
Every system comes with a complete training guide. We are also available via our live chat link, email, or phone to help you you’re your training questions. Our experienced technicians are happy to answer any questions regarding training, installation or choosing the perfect pet fence system for you and your dog!
The Invisible dog fence® brand dog fence system is similar to underground systems like Petsafe fence®, Innotek fence™, and SportDOG fence® but requires professional installation. You can install an underground system for a fraction of the cost of a professionally branded system and get the same great results.
I found your site after getting an estimate from the Invisible Fence Company. They gave me a price of around $2500 to install a system on my 1 acre property for my two dogs. While stunned by the price I feared installing it myself and worried about the training in particular. I began searching on line for do it yourself kits and came upon your website. The Flexpetz staff was very helpful and provided excellent follow up and support I was very impressed with the entire process, needless to say we installed the system ourselves and saved $2000.00
Very Happy with the Fence system I bought at Flexpetz. After talking to several pet sites who seemed to know almost nothing about their product, I chose flexpetz and the Innotek 5100 because of its rechargeable collars and remote training feature. Couldn't be more happy with my choice. Have had the fence up for over a year for my boxer and it works flawlessly. The remote is almost as good as the fence and I have broken my dog of many bad habits like jumping up on the counter and stealing food.
Great job guys, Todd
