How It Works
The most common configuration is shown below and is typically a large circle to encompass most of your yard. Any type of variation can be made as long as the wire completes a loop of sorts. There is then a control or 'twist' wire that goes inside a garage or your house to plug into the control box.
The wire is trenched into the ground about four inches and scarring on the grass is either very minimal or not seen at all in less than a month of good grass growing!
The wire produces a radio frequency that will trigger the rechargeable dog collar to go off at a certain spot in the yard. The collar will give an audible warning to your dog and if they continue into the boundary zone, they receive a static correction or shock.
The graph below is a guideline of how the wire emits the radio signal. The distance from the wire to the boundary flags is dependent on how tall your dog is. So if you have an 80 pound Golden, the flags will be about five feet away from where we have to trench the wire for the system.
This is a very basic explanation and your yard may have different obstacles and variables to it. Please feel free to call or email us with questions or fill out the form for a free consultation!

Gertrude Boyden Bird Sanctuary
1298 Cohannet Street, Taunton, MA
This is a hidden gem in the Taunton, MA area. It has about 50 acres which include large expanses of open field, several picnic areas, fishing stations and almost two miles of nature trails highlighted by a covered bridge and a new wetlands boardwalk providing passive recreation and bird watching. Remember to always have your dog on their leash and use proper dog walking etiquette when meeting strange dogs in these Massachusetts State Parks or any other outdoor facility. It goes without saying that you should always pick up after your pet with some sort of bag. Personally, I find great use of my Market Basket and Target plastic bags and always have a bunch in my car to use with me everywhere!
Massasoit State Park
1361 Middleboro Ave, East Taunton, MA 02718
With roughly 1500 acres of dense woods, this park in Taunton, MA has a great mix of paved and unpaved areas for you and your dog to traverse. "This heavily wooded park, minutes from Interstate Route 495, offers abundant beauty and many opportunities for recreation. Four lakes provide excellent fishing. Swimming for camping patrons only is available at the beach on Middle Pond. Biking, canoeing, walking, hiking, horseback riding and cross-country skiing are popular activities. In the fall the contrast of scarlet cranberry bogs against the pines is breathtaking." (from the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation website)
Dighton Rock State Park
Bay View Avenue, Berkley MA
Please remember that all State parks have a leash law and you could be ticketed at any time for allowing your dog off leash. This park may appear small but actually has almost 85 acres to it. From Bayview Ave in Berkley, just turn down 3rd Ave to get to the park. The museum where the actual rock is now located is open only during certain times so call ahead. The area is great for picnics and walks with lots of tree coverage. It sits along the Taunton River across from the Taunton Yacht Club and Shaws Boat Yard, both in Dighton, MA. During the summer months there is usually lots of boating activity and fun on the water.
