I have a yard that includes 1/2 of a pond. Our next door neighbor owns the other half. I would like to allow my dog full use of our half of the pond without crossing over into the neighbors yard. How can I do this with a dog fence?

Flexpetz

Megan,

You can use the wire layout shown in the diagram HERE. If you care to discuss it further, please feel free to contact us at any time, at 800-396-5517.

i have a home with a secured back yard and a doggy door. the dogs cannot get out of the yard, but the cat can. can i use a wireless dog fence to keep the cat primarily indoors, and with very limited out door space?

Flexpetz

You can try.
The wireless fence systems are not designed for the cats, but the PetSafe Stay + Play collar may be small enough to accommodate a cat.
We tend to see better results with the PetSafe in-ground cat fence system.
I hope that helps.

HI i have bought a buried wire system but my section is too full of tree roots and is on a hill, so is going to be a nightmare to dig and bury. Is there an alternative? I cant use wireless because of all the trees.
Can i put it on stakes or a fence or in plastic pipe lying on the ground instead for example?

Flexpetz

If you have the heavier gauge of wire (direct ground burial rated and UV resistant polyethylene coated), you can run it above ground and secure it down with our yard staples (so that nobody trips over it or hits it with a lawnmower etc.).

However, if you are using the 20 gauge factory wire, it's really recommended that it be buried or run through a conduit, to get the maximum life from it that you can.
I hope this is helpful information. If you still have questions, please feel free to contact us at 800-396-5517.

I Livein Florida with 100 feet of waterfront in the back. Both sides of the backyard are adequately fenced. However, my Westy can climb over the rocks separating the yard from the water to go around the fences on either side. Is there a way to install any kind of electronic fence that just keeps my dog from going onto the rocks and then around the fences.? In other words an electronic fence for just one side

Flexpetz

Don,

Yes there is. You can set an fence we have (except the YardMax, by PetSafe) in a layout like the one in THIS image. Just keep in mind that you'd need to keep the wire separated by at least 3' (whether horizontally, or vertically).
I hope that information helps. Cheers.

Can the perimeter of a wireless fence be modified? Can it be set for a smaller radius?

Flexpetz

Hollie,
Yes. All of our wireless fences can be set to a lower radius. The lowest setting depends on which system you opt for.
I hope that helps.

Can the dog fence be run along the base of a barbed wire or other metal fence?

Flexpetz

Allison,
It can, but you'll want to ensure that the fence is galvanized. We have many customers that weave the wire through their chain link fences without any issue.

I live about 100yards from a hwy but have a lot of land behind my house is there anyway I can just block off the hwy so my dog can run free on my land or could my dog just run around it,?

Flexpetz

If you do not encircle the yard, or have existing fence to create the other walls of the containment area, the dog could just go around the one sided fence to freedom on the other side.
