Dog Fence Installation Guide
"How can I install my own Invisible Fence?"... I hear this question a lot from dog owners who want a cheap and effective solution to their runaway dog.
Invisible Fence is a brand that's only offered through pro installers, so to install your own Invisible Fence you'll have to buy a used and unwarrantied system off of eBay. Fortunately, though, there are many DIY dog fences that are just as effective as the Invisible Fence brand — and, in fact, many of these products are manufactured by the very same company that owns Invisible Fence (see my product reviews for more information).
While installing your own dog fence isn't particularly complex, it does take some hard work. But, if you're willing to break a sweat, you aren't afraid of power tools, and you intend to contain a relatively small area, you can probably get the job done yourself in a day or two.
Step-By-Step Installation Guide
Unfortunately, the installation manuals that come with many DIY dog fences are vague and not particularly helpful. That's why I created this Installation Guide that shares my tips and tricks for making your dog fence installation quick, easy, and reliable.
