Great questions. The SDF-100A does not necessarily have to be buried, but we strongly recommend it. There is a far greater potential for damage to the wire if it is not buried. If the wire is damaged, the circuit will not complete and thus your system will not work. It does not need to be on level ground for the system to work.

Question

Do I need more than one battery pack with 3.72 acres of property to have a continuos feed

Can I just put the flags at the corners and spaced along the front at 100' intervails. I hate the look of flags on my lawn. The property also has a gravel driveway on that is very long will it work under the driveway materials? Soil is most likely red gray/sand, not sure yet just bought the house in south western North Carolina.

The flags are use for training your dog visually. Once your dog is fully trained on the system you can remove the flags because you dog knows the boundary. The signal should work fine under your driveway materials. If you have any other questions please contact the SportDOG help line at: 1-800-275-6797.

The SDF-100A has a rechargeable battery that can be user-replaced. The wire in both the kit and the additional wire and flag kit that can be used to provide extra range is 20 gauge.

The system will work for your dog, you just may need to take some extra steps to ensure proper fit on the neck. Both contact points need to be securely connecting with your dog's neck for the circuit to complete. You may need to trim the hair on your dog's neck where the contact points will connect. It is very important to trim the hair and not shave the neck. This can cause skin irritation.

The wire can be run under the driveway and will still function. You can also bury it around the driveway if you don't want to dig straight through.
