Petsafe Instant Fence - Wireless Dog Fence PIF-300
The wire installed at your house will work with any in-ground wired dog fence you purchase.
For those who want containment but don't want the effort of installing an in-ground fence a final option exists. systems are a fantastic option but are limited in application and layout and only work well in certain instances. The dog fence collars are much larger than the traditional wired systems so they are only recommended for dogs between 8-200 pounds. You are also limited to the type of installation you do with a wireless fence. This type of installation and most systems do not allow you to customize the boundaries like you could with a wired system. Wireless fences are also limited with geographic locations, and normally only work well on flat layouts with little or no trees. Large trees can cause interference with the signal out put. Some obvious advantages of a wireless system are very little installation time, portability and can be taken on trips or with you when you move. Wireless fence systems are hit or miss and work great in most cases, but all and all are still much lower quality than traditional . In general, wireless pet fence systems have two components a base unit or dog fence transmitter which emits the signal field and a dog fence receiver collar which receives the signal field. The transmitter must be placed inside your home and radiates a signal field up to a 180 foot diameter in and a up to a 90 foot radius in every direction of where the transmitter is placed in your home.
We are exploring the installation of an electric dog fence and we will be fencing a rather large area, the total perimeter will be around 1,500 feet. Is there a limit to the length of the perimeter that is effective?

Throughout Europe, for centuries, walls were the most common fences. However, Americans were used to vast plains and developed the fabric fence to minimize interference with the wide open spaces. Most fencing is rather expensive, so don't be shy about fencing a small area for the dog even if your yard is huge. Emphasize length; a dog run 10 feet wide and as long as possible in your yard allows the dog to run up and down and exercise nicely.For 12 years we lived in a townhouse condominium. We had three dogs and a 20-foot by 30-foot patio surrounded by a six-foot solid cedar fence. Next to a wall, this was a very fine dog containment system. People couldn't see in, the dog's couldn't see out, and the little patio almost became a room extension of the house. Solid wood privacy fences are available, but they are very expensive and they do block the view. However, they prevent passersby from teasing your dogs and sticking fingers through to possibly get bitten. Some communities and subdivisions zone against this type of fence or regulate the height and the side of the fence the boards must face.A new fence should be of sufficient height to discourage jumping. If the fence isn't high enough, consider a jumping harness that prevents the dog from leaping, or install "barbed wire arms," those angled steel extensions for the top of the fence. String the arms with plain wire or fence fabric instead of barbed wire, and the dog can't jump or climb up, over, and out.I'm surprised we don't see more picket fences, those expressions of the American Dream. These fences consist of narrow slats of wood nailed upright on a solid wood frame. Installed at the proper height for your breed, they are a very strong dog containment system. They can span the gaps in a solid wall or stockade fence. They offer the strength of wood yet don't totally block the view. Picket fences are rather expensive, though not as costly as a wall or privacy fence. They are fairly good looking, do not prevent people from poking things at the dog, and may be prohibited by some zoning laws.
