Benefits of Installing Your Own Electric Pet Fence

Besides the obvious benefit of keeping your dog safe, there are lots of practical reasons to buy a DIY electric pet fence installation kit.

  • Save Money: Hiring a professional installer can cost hundreds or thousands depending on the size of your property. By installing it yourself, you retain that extra money for your other “pet” projects.
  • Do it Right: You know your property best. Instead of attempting to have a stranger come to you to do an installation, you can do it right the first time.
  • Know How to Troubleshoot: Who best than the installer to call when there’s an issue? You are well-acquainted with where and how the pet containment system was installed. This means that you are armed with the knowledge and skill you need to deal with any troubleshooting that may occur years down the road.

Parts Designed to Keep Your Pet’s Safe

Contacts: The eXtreme Dog Fence Kit comes with extra contacts and training caps to suit your dog’s size and breed. Long-haired dogs benefit from our longer contacts. The contacts must be near the skin for the correction to be felt.

Digital Transmitter: Super compact and powerful, our digital transmitter can accommodate any number of dog collars. The transmitter should be located near an electrical outlet, but at least 3 feet away from large metal objects. This works well with our surge protector.

Surge Protector: Every kit comes with 1 power surge and lightning protector. The Extreme Dog Fence Lightning/Surge Protector is designed to provide protection for electric dog fence systems. Your fence wire will run through this unit as well as the electricity for the fence transmitter.

Collar Features

Digital Frequency Encoding: The digital frequency encoding is a handy feature if you think a neighbor may also have an electric dog fence. This tech feature eliminates stray signal interference from neighboring dog fence systems and other signal generating devices. Nearby dog fence systems and other devices that generate similar signals can interfere with your electric dog fence causing signal interruption or unreliability.

Small and Lightweight: The eXtreme receiver collar is one of the lightest and smallest collars in the industry. Weighing in at only 4.4 ounces, it is suitable for dogs right down to 8 lbs.

Comfort Contacts: The eXtreme receiver collar uses unique conductive rubber contact points to increase collar comfort for your dog. While the comfort contact points conduct the correction just like metal contact points, they are softer and less irritating on your dog’s skin. The comfort contact points make this system the number one choice for dogs with sensitive skin.

7 Individual Correction Settings plus a beep-only mode: The eXtreme receiver collar is capable of 5 unique correction level settings and 2 progressive settings that automatically increase as the dog continues towards the boundary line. Setting 00 is a beep-only mode for training. Each collar on the system has its own correction level but rather than being set on the collar itself, they are set at the transmitter. The unique correction level settings and lightweight collar make this a good choice for multi-dog households where all dogs are 8 lbs.

Battery Check: The patented Battery Check feature ensures you only change the battery when it is truly depleted. The Battery Check feature auto-activates every two hours to ensure you know as soon as your battery is low. Since battery output fluctuates depending on the environment and other factors the Perimeter collar requires 3 consecutive low battery triggers to set off the low battery indication.

Exceptional Waterproofing: Because the eXtreme collar does not have any buttons or dials on the collar itself, the waterproofing is really perfect. The collar can be fully submersed while functioning. Because of this feature we recommend the eXtreme Dog Fence for rainy climates as well as lakefront installation or yards with ponds or pools.

Disposable Proprietary Battery: This collar uses a disposable proprietary battery. Most people prefer a rechargeable battery, a generic battery is second best because it’s easy to get your hands on. The proprietary battery is generally our least favorite but does have its virtues in this case. The Perimeter proprietary battery has a pretty impressive 4-6 month lifespan. Its superior tech features include a sophisticated battery indicator that detects a true low battery so you only change it when it is depleted. For some people, a battery change every 4-6 months is preferable over remembering to recharge daily.

How to program your correction level

Questions & Answers

Question: I have 1 acre of land. How much wire do I need?

Answer: You would need to order 1,000 feet of wire with your kit, since the wire comes in 500 ft. increments. Regarding a more specific number you will end up using, you would need to take into consideration the shape of the boundary. For example, if the boundary is shaped in a square, you would need approximately 836 feet total.

Question: What batteries does the collar use?

Answer: The active collar (red strap and blue receiver) runs on Perimeter 6-volt batteries. Our stubborn dog collar (solid blue) runs on 7.5 volt collar batteries.

Question: Does it alert you if your dog gets out?

Answer: No, there is no alarm or notification at the transmitter if the dog gets out of the boundary.

Question: Can additional collars be added in the future for other dogs?

Answer: Absolutely! An unlimited number of dogs can be contained on this system.

Question: Do I need to be an electrician to install this fence?

Answer: No you don’t need to be an electrician. Hooking up your dog fence is quite simple, and doesn’t require any special skills to complete. All you need to be able to do is hook up 2 wires to 2 screws on the transmitter.

Question: Will the entire dog fence work if there is a break anywhere in the wire?

Answer: No it won’t. If there is even the smallest break in your dog fence wire, your entire fence is compromised, and an alarm will sound at the transmitter. This alarm means that if your dog is out in your yard, he is not protected and can get out of the fence. This is why choosing the right dog fence wire in the first place is so important.

Question: Can I run the wire above the ground, along a fence for example?

Answer: Yes, you absolutely can. However, it is highly recommended if doing this that you go with a Pro Grade or Max Grade kit that comes with a thick and sturdy cable to protect it from a potential wire break.

Question: Will a yard that has a lot of trees disrupt the dog fence signal?

Answer: Absolutely not. No amount of trees will interfere with the signal coming off of our eXtreme Dog Fence Wire.

Question: How many collars come with the kit and can I order extras?

Answer: One collar comes with your kit. You can add as many collars as you need by using the dropdown menu to do so.

Question: Do you have a remote trainer that works with your dog fence?

Answer: Yes, we sell a remote trainer, but it doesn’t use the same collar as your dog fence does. However, what you can do is remove the receiver from the remote trainer collar and slide it onto your dog fence collar, so that both receivers are on the one collar.

Question: Is there a vibration feature as well as a tone and a shock?

Answer: No, there is no vibrate feature on the eXtreme Dog Fence.

Question: Can I just wait until the spring to bury the wire? Will the wire be okay if there is snow on top of it?

Answer: Our Prograde and Max grade wire definitely sturdy enough to weather the elements. You can certainly wait until the spring to bury your dog fence wire.

Question: Does the transmitter need to be mounted in a temperature-controlled environment?

Answer: No it doesn’t. High or low temperatures are not an issue; however your dog fence transmitter can absolutely NOT get wet.

Question: How old does my dog need to be to use the eXtreme Dog Fence?

Answer: As young as 6 months old is fine. The important thing is that the dog needs to be able to understand basic commands.

Question: Can the transmitter be plugged into an outdoor porch?

Answer: Yes it can. However since it must be protected from moisture, it should be kept in a waterproof box, such as a sprinkler box.

Question: What is the twisted wire used for?

Answer: Twisted wire is used to connect the boundary loop to the transmitter. When used in this way, twisted wire is neutral and won’t correct your dog for crossing over it. However, twisted wire can never be used as part of your boundary loop itself.

Question: Does the dog fence wire need to be ran in one continuous loop? Can it just be ran on one side of the property?

Answer: Yes, as with any dog fence, your dog fence wire must be ran in one continuous loop. Yes it can be ran just on one side of the property, but a double loop must be created there, with 4 feet separating its parallel sides.

Question: Will the collars still shock with the rubber contact points covering the tips?

Answer: Yes, they will. The rubber contact points are metal-infused, so they are still able to deliver the static correction through them.

Question: How deep should I bury the dog fence wire?

Answer: 3-6 inches is recommended.

Question: In a double loop installation, can I put both loops together in the same trench?

Answer: No you can’t. The parallel wires must be separated by 4 feet, which means they must be buried in 2 separate trenches.

1 review for eXtreme Dog Fence® MAX Grade Ultimate Performance System

  1. Keith Barry

    Hands down worth every penny. My boxer used to sit and allow the collar of our old system to just beep and could break the barriers. We upgraded to this system and it beeps once and she turns around. She has learned to respect her boundaries. Have had it 6 months and still on the original battery. I did upgrade to the stubborn collar. The wire installs easy. No fear of breaking it while installing. Put in almost 900 ft of wire. Install this system once and feel confident its the last time you will lay wire. I also noticed with the control unit it actually does keep a steady signal. My old system the boundaries would move whenever it rained or the temp dropped.
