Does an invisible dog fence have to make a complete loop?
The answer is no, an electric fence DOES NOT have to make a complete loop. Creating a continuous loop will increase voltage on the fence line, because power is pushed in both directions. Essentially, with a continuous loop, voltage only has to travel half the distance.
How do you block an invisible fence signal?
The only way to cancel the signal in a certain area of the Boundary Area is to install a Double Loop Layout (FIGURE 2F) and twist the two parallel boundary wires together in the area where you need the the signal to be cancelled.
Attach an L-footer along the bottom of the fence, facing in. You can use chicken wire, hardware cloth, or a piece of chain-link fence attached to the base of the fence. Some people bury it for aesthetic reasons. But you can also lay it on top of the grass and hold it down with rocks, gravel, mulch, or even planters.
What is the easiest way to install an underground dog fence?
The easiest way to bury a dog fence wire is with a trencher or power edger. If you have a small yard you can use an electric one (see below). Use a trencher to quickly dig the trench and lay down the wire.
How deep should invisible fence be buried?
In most cases, the wires should be buried in a trench that is between 1 and 3 inches deep; burying the wires at this depth allows adequate transmission of the signal, while protecting the wire from damage from lawn mowers and other activity on the lawn.
Can you put an underground dog fence above ground?

Bury chicken wire along the base of the chain-link fence so that when your dog starts digging, it will encounter the wire, which will discourage further digging. Lay the chicken wire horizontally on the ground, extending it from the bottom of the fence to about 1 foot outward from the fence.
Why do you twist invisible fence wire?
The twisted wire carries the signal from your transmitter box out to the main loop but stays neutral and allows your dog to cross over without correction (without the twisted wire your dog would not be able to cross the line that runs from your transmitter out to the boundary loop).
