If you have a break in your driveway then you can use that. If not you may have to make your own break in the driveway or rethink how you want the fence to run.

Thank you for your interest in PetSafe products.

You may need to configure your boundary wire in a double loop layout. A double loop is a type of wire layout which gives you the option to establish a boundary when you do not want to contain your whole property.

In the double loop layout, you run the wire from your transmitter and around the yard. Once the wire reaches the opposite side of the yard from the transmitter, the wire needs to make a U-turn and follow the same path at least 5 feet away from itself as it goes back into the transmitter.

If you would like more information on the double loop layout or PetSafe products in general, please feel free to call PetSafe Customer Care at 1-800-732-2677. Our office hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00 A.M. to 8:00 P.M. Eastern Time and on Saturdays from 9:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. Eastern.

You probably could. I went to my local hardware store and rented a machine. All I had to do was feed the wire in the machine and it made a trench, and fed the wire through at the same time. It was so handy. I think it was called a fence trencher or wire trencher.

Thank you for your interest in PetSafe products.

Snow will not interfere with the radio signal carried by the boundary wire, but it may raise your pet high enough to where the signal is not able to be picked up by the receiver collar. This is especially true in areas where snow drifts occur.

Also, please note the boundary wire should not be placed through a metal conduit or culvert.

Our product experts are happy to help answer any further questions you may have regarding the function of this product or wire layout. To speak with a PetSafe product expert, please call PetSafe Customer Care at 1-800-732-2677.

Our office hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00 A.M. until 8:00 P.M. Eastern Time and Saturdays from 9:00 A.M. until 5:00 P.M. Eastern.
