Boundary wire break indicator
3 Year Warranty
Yes, there is a 3-year electronic parts warranty with the system.
The system will work around the boundary of any property up to 12 acres.
While the system will work if the boundary wire is laid on top of the ground, we advise to bury the wire approx. 3cm below the ground to protect it from getting damaged or breaking the continuous loop which will affect the performance of the system.
Feed the wire through a robust plastic conduit or duct, this conduit can sit on top of the driveway but for aesthetic purposes it is better to cut a trench in the driveway and bury the conduit approx. 3 cm below the surface. The trench can then be filled in and the surface made good again.
Yes this is possible if you put down a second strand of boundary wire and wrap the strands around each other at a rate of 50 twists per metre this will dampen the radio signal passing through the wire and allow your dog to cross over the boundary at that point.
The charge cycle takes 16 hours, when the battery is fully charged the centre battery light on the transmitter (wall unit) will stay permanently green. For the first few weeks of operation while your dog is being trained we recommend replacing the battery every week. When your dog is fully trained a battery will last approx. 3 weeks on a single charge.
A detailed training guide is provided with the system, the training will take 10-15 minutes per day for approx. 2 weeks depending on the temperament of your dog.
All dogs mature differently so the ideal age to start training can differ between breeds, we recommend not to start training your dog until they are at least 4 months old.
No, this is a mild stimulus the level of which can be adjusted by the switch in the collar unit so that your dog receives the appropriate level of stimulation for its size. This type of stimulation has been used in dog training for over 40 years and is recommended by veterinarians.
Yes any amount of dogs can be contained with the Forcefield system, each dog will need their own collar units, extra collar units can be purchased separately.
Yes our system works with all breeds and sizes of dogs. There are 2 sizes of probes for the collar unit supplied with the system, the short probes for smaller dogs and the long probes for larger dogs. Also there is a Hi/Lo switch in the battery chamber of the collar unit which controls the level of stimulus delivered, Lo for small dogs and Hi for large or disobedient dogs. Extra-large collars for very large dogs can be purchased separately.
