This is a great question, Ian! This would be perfectly fine. Wire can be run through any non-metallic conduit for protection.
Thank you for this question! It is recommended to place the wire 1 to 3 inches into the ground.
Thank you for your great question, Jalutzy. If two In-Ground Fence systems' wires are too close, then yes, there can be signal interference (whether both fences are PetSafe Brand or not). If you and your neighbor both have In-Ground Fences, we will recommend that the lines are at least ten feet apart from one another to avoid the potential of interference.
Great question, Kin! This is actually something you control. Using dial on the transmitter numbered from 1-10, you can adjust the distance from the wire that the receiver collar will deliver a tone and stimulation. We recommend setting it to allow a minimum of 3ft of signal to give the collar time to provide the warning tone then stimulation should your pet progress further toward the wire.
Thank you for your great question. The In-Ground Fence does require a complete, closed loop. However, we do have layout possibilities where you can still allow your dogs access to the gate. There are detailed diagrams in the manual that will help you achieve this layout, and our Customer Support can help you find a layout that works for you as well. We can be contacted at 1-800-732-2677
Thank you for your question! The In-Ground containment systems will work regardless of weather conditions. Pet containment systems are built to handle a wide variety of weather conditions, and snow, sleet, and rain are most certainly included. The wire used to determine a dog's proximity to a yard's boundaries is insulated, and transmits its signal through radio waves so snow won't interfere with its functionality as long as it has been properly installed.
Thank you for this question! You may use any collar that are currently working with your RF-1010 with this system. For additional questions you may have please feel free to reach out to us at 1-800-732-2677. We are happy to help!
Thank you for this question, Liv! This transmitter can cover up to 25 acres, or around 4100 feet of wire.
This is a great question! You can attach any 16-20 gauge copper insulated wire to the wire that comes with your kit to expand your perimeter.
