Description

The SportDOG In-Ground Fence gives your dog room to run...but not run away! From city lots to large properties up to 100 acres, this system has been proven safe, comfortable and effective for containing all dogs over 10 pounds. Setup is easy: simply bury a wire at the perimeter of the yard. When your dog is wearing its collar and nears the boundary, it hears a warning beep. If your dog continues toward the boundary or tries to leave, the collar delivers a harmless static stimulation as a reminder to stay in the “safe” part of the property. With some simple training exercises, your dog quickly learns to respect the limits you’ve set.

Instructions

Installing an In-Ground Fence

  1. Plan your layout
  2. Install and test your system
  3. Place the collar on your dog and find the right stimulation level
  4. Train your dog in short sessions during the next 2 weeks

Skills and tools required: Installation involves simple handiwork with basic yard tools. You’ll be burying wire at a very shallow depth, possibly splicing wire, and patching the surface along the perimeter.

Troubleshooting

Collar Receiver is not beeping or correcting. * Check battery to make sure it is installed properly (page 12). * Check that both lights are lit on the Fence Transmitter. If not, perform the “Short Loop Test” (page 23).

The Collar Receiver is beeping, but the dog is not responding to the Stimulation.

  • Make sure the Stimulation Level is set at 2 or above.
  • Test the Collar Receiver with the Test Light (6B, page 13).
  • If the Test Light flashes, check the fit of the Collar Receiver (Step 9, page 16).
  • Trim your dog’s hair where the Contact Points touch the neck and/or switch to the longer Contact Points.
  • Increase the Stimulation Level.
  • Repeat training steps to reinforce training.

The Collar Receiver has to be held on top of the Boundary Wire to activate.

  • Replace battery.
  • Adjust Range Adjuster knob clockwise to increase the distance from the Boundary Wire that the Collar Receiver activates.
  • Adjust the Range Switch to the other setting.
  • If using a Double Loop, make sure Boundary Wires are separated 3 to 5 feet.
  • If the Collar Receiver still has to be held on top of the Boundary Wire, perform the “Short Loop Test” (page 23).

The Collar Receiver activates inside the house.

  • Turn the Range Adjuster knob counterclockwise to decrease the distance from the Boundary Wire that the Collar Receiver activates.
  • Make sure the Boundary Wire is not running too close to the house. The signal can transmit through the walls of your house.
  • Make sure Boundary Wires are twisted from Boundary to the Fence Transmitter

I have an inconsistent signal.

  • Make sure the Fence Transmitter is at least 3 feet from large metal objects or appliances.
  • Make sure all Boundary Wire turns are gradual. • Make sure the Boundary Wire is not running parallel to and within 5 feet of electrical wires, neighboring containment systems, telephone wires, television or antenna cables, or satellite dishes.

The Power and Loop Indicator Lights are off.

  • Check that the Power Adapter is plugged into the Fence Transmitter.
  • Try plugging into another electrical outlet.
  • Replace the fuses, refer to (Step 4C, page 11).

The Power Light is on, the Loop Indicator Light is off, and the Fence Transmitter loop alarm is sounding.

  • Make sure both ends of the Boundary Wire are plugged into Boundary Wire Terminals and that ½ inch of the insulation is stripped so that the copper wire is exposed.
  • Perform the “Short Loop Test” to determine if the Fence Transmitter needs to be replaced or if the Boundary Wire is broken (page 23).
  • If the Fence Transmitter is functioning properly, you have a break in your Boundary Wire. See the “Locating a Break in the Wire” section in this guide (page 24).

The fuses blow when they are replaced.

  • The Fence Transmitter and/or Power Adapter needs to be replaced.
FAQ

Will the SDF-100A work in my yard?

Yes. This system works in yards up to 100 acres with the purchase of additional wire and flag kits (SDF-WF). This system includes 1,000 feet of wire and 100 boundary flags.

Is my dog too big (or little)?

The SportDOG Brand In-Ground Fence System has been proven safe and effective for dogs over 10 pounds. The adjustable collar and Stimulation levels allow you to create a perfect solution for your dog.

Can my children get hurt?

NO. The mild correction is produced by the Contact Points on the Collar Receiver, not the Boundary Wire. With proper use, the system is safe for all.

I have a small dog and a large dog; will this work for me?

YES. Since the SportDOG Brand In-Ground Fence System provides just the right amount of adjustable stimulation within each dog’s collar, it is safe and effective for all the dogs in your family over 10 pounds. The kit includes one collar; additional collars are sold separately (SDF-R Add-A-Dog).

Is this complicated?

No. This operating and training guide will walk you through every step.

Can I use the system with an existing fence?

YES. The system can be used with an existing fence if you have a problem with a dog digging or jumping over a traditional fence.

How often will my dog receive a correction?

When trained properly, most dogs will only receive a few corrections during normal usage.

How old does my dog have to be before starting to train on the In-Ground system?

Because all dogs are different, training on the SportDOG Brand In-Ground Fence System can be started once your dog can learn basic obedience commands like “sit” and “stay.”

Can I twist one wire to make a gate or safe area that my dog can cross?

No. The wires need to meet in order to cancel out the signal.

Does the Range Adjuster knob tell me how wide my Boundary Width will be?

Every yard is different. You will have to use the Collar Receiver to find the Boundary Width.

Can I use the SDF-100A with more than one dog?

Yes. Any number of dogs can be added to the system with the purchase of SDF-R Add-A-Dog Collar Receivers.

Are there other collars besides the SDF-R that are compatible with my SDF-100A system?

Yes, the PetSafe In-Ground Fence Extra Reciever Collars will work with this system. They include the PUL-250 UltraLight, the PUL-275 Deluxe UltraLight, the PRF-275-11 Stubborn Dog and the PIG00-10778 Little Dog.

Why is my SDF-100A Transmitter beeping?

You have a break in your Boundary Wire. Refer to “TO LOCATE A BREAK IN THE BOUNDARY WIRE” section on page 24 for more information.

Why is it suggested to preform a Short Loop Test?

A Short Loop Test is a simple test to determine if each component (Fence Transmitter, Collar Receiver and Boundary Wire) is functioning properly.

    Love Sport DOGI In ground fence! Twice the wire, twice the flags and a well-made product! I have two standard poodles. One three and the other 4 months. I tried the training collar first. I thought....try and save some money! Big mistake! We recently moved and she found every way out of our fence so even if she had the collar on she was already in the process of galloping away! Yes galloping!!! So, the in ground fence is great! Because she knows it's there. All it took was two times and my little girl is trained. I can let her out daily and she will gallop around our property having a glorious time! She is a smart dog so I am not sure how many days it will take your little one.

My four month old was more astute. It took him once and he understands his boundaries! My only caution would be to turn off your fence if you are not using it and when the weather looks bad disconnect! You can avoid all that by getting a ground wire and surge protector to put inside of your box! ENJOY your peace of mind!!! … more

    I got this because my lab kept getting out under the gate on our 3 acres. I installed this very quickly by weaving through the fence I already have and only had to dig a very short section under my drive way. I don’t have anymore problems with her getting out. I even bought an extra collar for my Mastiff to keep him from charging the fence when the neibors dogs com to the fence. Neither dog comes close to the fence now. I like how you can adjust the distance they can be from the wire I put it at around 3 feet because I like my dogs to run my property.

  • Love it. Very happy.

    It was easy to install and works great with our doodle! We’re very pleased. We like the different levels of shock or vibration. Our dog is super timid so it doesn’t take much to deter her.

  • Very happy so far with multiple dogs of different size

    By on

    My family is very happy with this purchase. We got the sportdog invisible fence system with an extra collar and surge protector. We have 1220 sq ft property that we installed fence around, which is not our entire property. Although it was time consuming, it was a very simple process. We have a large dog and small dog and the ability to have different levels per dog was great. They needed very little training so far and stop at the flags when it begins beeping. Hoping this continues once the flags are down for mowing purposes. Very happy so far.

    We purchased the SportDog SDF-100A In-Ground Fence System for Dogs. It was easy to install and simple to set up. Like the ability to adjust of current so if our son, who has the same system, brings his dogs to visit we can turn it up for his hard-headed family members!
