As licensed general contractor, PetSitter is the most qualified installer in San Diego. From laying wire through thorny landscaping to cutting concrete and resealing it, we have done and can do... it all.
Laying out the wire is the single most time consuming part of installing a system. First and foremost, it must loop back to itself. A single wire ending somewhere in your back yard will not work. It has to return to the point of origin.
There are a number of techniques we use to accomplish this. One of the most important is to twist the wire tightly so your pet can walk safely near the transmitter origin.
Check out the drawings on this page to see how we might install in your yard.
Often, enclosing an area completely means going across a sidewalk or a driveway. San Diego Pet Fence does not just lay the wire across the concrete. We find an expansion joint, cut it with out concrete say, lay the wire and then reseal the joint so the wire does not show and it stays put.
OUr system is powerful enough to support several layouts on a single transmitter.
You can't watch them 24/7 and the temptations waiting for them are out there. Without constant supervision or a physical barrier to back up training, your pet will get out. It is a dangerous world for your pet. Your job and ours is to protect them.
This layout has an inclusion to keep pets out of a garden, sandbox, pool or other area.
Doubling the wire not only returns the loop back to its origin, it expands the coverage too.
Coverage range is the distance from the wire, the collar will pick up a signal. This is controlled through the transmitter but we can use other techniques to control it as well. We recommend a 10 foot range when the yard is big enough to support it.
This layout keeps your pet safe in the back yard without an expensive fence. Our pet fence is typically half the price or less of a chain link fence in larger yards.
