Self-Installing a Dog Fence

Thinking about self-installing a dog fence? If you order a dog fence for self installation our guide walks you through the process step by step, ensuring a seamless installation experience.

Self-installing a dog fence is a straightforward process that allows you to create a safe and secure environment for your pet without the need for professional assistance. Follow these steps to set up your containment system:

  1. Planning: Start by mapping out the area where you want to install the fence. Consider the size of your property, any obstacles or terrain features, and where you want to establish boundaries for your pet.
  2. Selecting the Right Equipment: Choose a dog fence kit that suits your needs and budget.  You can install one of our Professional Range Fences which offer more flexibilty, heavier wire and longer warranties or our entry level GK DIY. The GK includes all the qualities of our Pro range systems in a simple to install version, designed for smaller properities.
  3. Installation: Begin by installing the transmitter in a central location indoors, preferably near a power outlet. Then, bury the boundary wire around the perimeter of your property according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Place training flags along the boundary to help your pet visually recognize the limits of their space.
  4. Training Your Pet: Once the fence is installed, it’s essential to train your pet to understand and respect the boundaries. Follow the training protocol provided with your dog fence kit, and be patient and consistent throughout the process.
  5. Testing and Adjusting: After training your pet, conduct tests to ensure the system is working correctly. Make any necessary adjustments to the boundary width or correction levels to ensure your pet’s safety and comfort.

By self-installing a dog fence, you can provide your pet with the freedom to roam safely giving you peace of mind and of course we only ever a phone call away if you need support.
