Description

Dogtek Electronic Dog Fence System is an invisible dog fence that enables you to keep one or more dogs safe in complete freedom, within a perimeter that you define, without the need of an expensive, unsightly containment fence. A discrete perimeter wire—up to 500 feet —is placed on the ground, buried or raised on an existing fence to carry a signal from a small transmitter unit. When a dog wearing the receiver collar approaches the wire, the collar receives a signal that sets off a warning beep. As he gets closer to the wire, he enters the correction zone and is corrected by small electrical impulses. As he leaves the area the impulses stop. It’s a safe, simple and effective containment solution.

Instructions

Avoid cleaning the collar with volatile liquids such as solvents or cleaning fluids. Use a soft cloth and neutral detergent. The strap can be washed with soapy water.

Troubleshooting

  • Should your pet fencing system develop a fault, first read this guide over, then check the collar battery and recharge it if necessary. Also check that you are using the product correctly.
  • Check the fit and tightness of the collar on your dog’s neck. Make sure the contact points are in contact with the animal’s skin. If necessary, replace the short contact points by the long ones.
  • Make sure the contact points are correctly tightened on the collar.
  • Check the wire connection to the transmitter.
  • Check the transmitter power supply (when the transmitter is On, the blue light is on).
  • If you encounter any problem of detection distances, check the condition of the wire and the connections (oxidation, nick in the wire).
Size

Fitting and positioning the collar is very important. In fact, the collar position determines the correct operation of the product (straying detection, transmission of the stimulations).

To achieve best results from your system, the strap must be adjusted so that the contact points are in contact with the skin of the dog.

  • If the strap is too loose, the collar is likely to move and repeated friction can irritate the skin of your dog.
  • If the collar is too tight, the dog will have breathing difficulties.

If necessary, replace the short contact points with the long ones supplied with the kit.

CAUTION: Do not leave the collar more than 8 hours per day on your dog. Check your dog’s neck regularly. If irritations appear, remove the collar until all signs of skin irritations have disappeared.

FAQ

How does the system work? The transmitter box sends a radio signal through the fence wire which activates the waterproof receiver collar when it is close. The collar will sound warning beeps before emitting a static shock. The amount of warning and intensity of the shock can be adjusted to what works best for you.

Can I attach a leash to the containment receiver collar? No. This can result in pulling the contact points too tightly against your pet’s neck. Attach a leash to a separate, non-metallic collar positioned above the receiver collar.

Can I use more than one receiver collar on the system? Yes. There is no limit to the number of pets you can contain with the EF-4000 system. It’s as simple as purchasing an additional compatible receiver collar for each pet.

Can I use the fence system on a cat? Yes, the system can be used as long as the cat can comfortably wear the receiver collar.

How old should my pet be before I start training? For best results, your pet should be 4 to 6 months old and know basic commands such as sit and stay.

Will the static correction harm my pet? The static correction is safe and harmless. It is effective enough to get your pet’s attention. The correction produces less energy than that produced by a static shock from carpeting. However, we do recommend checking with your Vet first if you are unsure about your dog's health.

How long can my pet wear the receiver collar? Never leave the receiver collar on your pet for more than 12 consecutive hours. Remove the receiver collar from your pet when indoors to prevent the collar from activating to the many different electrical interference possibilities found in the home.

How long does the collar battery last? The battery life will depend on how often the collar is activated. The battery will deplete faster when your dog is first training. Once your dog is trained, the battery life should be about 6 months.

Is there a smaller receiver collar that I can use? No. The receiver collar is a one size fits all collar. You can use either the short or long contact points that come with the system, depending on the size or amount of fur on your dog.

Is the system waterproof? The receiver collar is waterproof. The transmitter box is not waterproof and must be installed in a dry location such as a garage or shed. The transmitter box can withstand temperature changes but can be damaged by water.

Can weather effect the fence system? No. The system will work in any weather your dog can endure. We do recommend unplugging fence wire and electrical cord from the transmitter box during a lightning storm.

Is there a limit to the size of the area you can use with the fence system? Yes. The fence system has been designed to work with up to 2000 feet of wire, which is equal to 5 acres.

Will the fence system work with my yard configuration? Most likely. There is almost always a way to run the wire so you can contain your dog in the areas you wish while allowing them to pass through areas that are needed, such as doorways.

Do I need to bury the fence wire? While it is not necessary to bury the fence wire, it does keep the wire more protected.

How can I get the wire to cross my driveway? You can either run the wire under the driveway (through PVC pipe if easier), or rent a cement saw and create a thin gap for your wire to rest in.

If my dog stays within the stimulation zone, how long will he or she be corrected? As a safety feature, the receiver collar will stop emitting corrections after 20 seconds of being in the stimulation zone. Normal functioning resumes when your dog leaves this zone.

Why is my transmitter box beeping? As a safety feature, the transmitter box will beep if it detects a break in the fence wire. A break in the fence wire will not allow the system to function properly and the wire should be checked right away.

Where do I put my boundary flags? The flags are a temporary visual aid for your dog during the training process. They enable your dog to visualize the area where he can move freely and the boundaries he must not cross. We recommend installing the flags at the inner edge of the warning zone at short intervals. Do not place the flags at the antenna wire. Once your dog is familiar with the boundaries, the flags can be gradually removed.

Can I attach the boundary wire to a fence? Yes, however a metal fence can possibly cause interference and also allow a better chance of lightning damaging your system.

Can I use 14 or 16 AWG wire instead of the 20 AWG wire that comes with the system? Yes. A higher gauge wire does not reduce the effectiveness of the fence system.

    Worked Great FOR ABOUT SIX MONTHS

    By on

    AS stated, this system worked as advertised for about six months and then poof, the blue light stays on as if to say that the system is operational but it is not. Replaced battery and that was not the issue. The system will alarm at different times with no consistency in when, or why. Will go with another brand for future purchases.

    Doesn’t work as instructions state and randomly shocks dog far from barrier

    By on

    In order to create a proper boundary in my yard there was one section of fence which would need to *not* shock and allow him to cross. Per instructions, to accomplish this the wire is crossed over itself. This has yet to work successfully after multiple attempts by us and multiple friends (just in case we werent interpreting correctly). Additionally, our dog has been shocked 3 times now inside our home when he jumps or moves quickly over 30’ from the nearest boundary wire, with the settings on shock at 2.6’ and warn at 4’. And finally, we most recently tried again to attempt the cross over area when it came spring and time to bury the wire, adjusting the boundary zone in an attempt to get In order to create a proper boundary in my yard there was one section of fence which would need to *not* shock and allow him to cross.

And finally, we most recently tried again to attempt the cross over area when it came spring and time to bury the wire, adjusting the boundary zone in an attempt to get it “just right”. This would allow us to avoid having the wire all the way around the house, and just in the yard adding some confidence that perhaps this would resolve any shocking inside due to quick movement. (Illogical, I know. Hindsight is 2020). Of course the cross over zone didn’t work so we adjusted the settings to 1’ shock and approx 2’ warn. Now my 55 lb dog is subjected to 2 options: jump the fence because he is big enough that 1’ doesn’t make a difference or get constant warning beeps to drive him to utter madness and confusion because the next setting goes to 4’ beep zone, and that’s way to sensitive for him to make it over the “cross over zone.” Highly dissatisfied with this product. Will be looking at electric transmitter style instead. … more

    There are spots in the fence that do not transmit, The warning beeps are not activated in all areas and are delayed which causes a problem when my dog charges out of the fence after another dog. I am not saitisfied with this product at all!

    Great product

    By on

    It's easy to install. Kind of like 1,2,3 you're done. I dug a wire moat around my yard to bury and it worked. I have 2 shorkies. The first day I think my male forgot and ran right through it. However, it's been 2 weeks and he starts shaking when I try to take him close to the boundaries. He's very slowly beginning to go to more than one place in yard. I shocked myself to see the strength initially. Im a mom of 4 and I did whole thing myself. Directions are on point. My dog has ran off numerous times and this has been perfect training. I still don't trust him without his collar on outside but I'm sure I'll get to that point.

    Easy to install

    By on

    The Dogtek Electronic Dog Fence was easy to install and came with clear, easy to understand instructions. My yard is over an acre, and so I ordered extra wire to cover the area. I also ordered an extra collar as I have two dogs. They had become "escape artists", digging under the fence and running the neighborhood when no one was looking. The Electronic Dog Fence System has put an end to their shenanigans, and I feel relieved that they are safe and secure in our yard.
