In-ground Invisible Dog Fence
Many wired systems are available to contain your pet. These systems have a transmitter, wire, and receiver collar. First, you must bury the wire in the shape of your desired containment area. This takes a little longer than the wireless option. But it provides a more custom shaped boundary than most wireless systems. Also, this is usually a more consistent signal as well as long as the wire is in good shape. However, you must repair breaks in the wire to maintain the boundary. Digging, erosion, etc can all expose the wire to potential damage.
