Hello everybody

I have been looking all over for the principle of these fences that keep
pets out of the garden, but did not find anything. It works on around 10 kHz
and has a hidden (buried) transmitter which signals the boundaries. The dog
gets a collar that gives him firstly an audible warning, and then it gives
him an electric shock when he gets too close to this bounary. Does anybody
know how this system works, and where I can get hold of circuitry for this?

Thanks

Mias van Vuuren

       I'd never do that to my loved pet

I understand your concern for the pet. It can be misused. In my case it
affords a great measure of protection for my 72 pound Black Labrador
Retriever while giving her a great deal of freedom. My house is in a three
acre clearing with a country road in the front. There is high speed road
traffic that has proven to be deadly to pets in the past. I have used the
Pet Safe brand AND careful training to limit Shadow's access to the area
bounded by 1000 feet of perimeter wire. She is well trained and upholds her
part of the bargain well. She will not intentionally cross the boundary even
when it is turned off except in a wheeled vehicle!

It works so well that I bought an Innotek Trainer which consists of a
beep/shock collar with a transmitter that works out to 1/3 mile. It can be
set up with a switch controlled function that gives the choice of a mild
shock after a one second beep or just the beep. It stays in the beep only
function unless there is a serious threat to her safety. The strong hunting
instincts of her breed can drive her into needless danger. Her conditioning
is strong enough at 2-1/2 years of age that I use the beep function about
once a week and the shock function about once a month. I have both devices
on the same collar and she regards the collar as her "clothes" and expects
to put it on when she gets up in the morning and take it off to go to bed.
The fence device has a 6 volt lithium battery that lasts several months. The
Innotek device has a NiCad which charges over night. Unfortunately, the
NiCad is considered non replaceable and the unit is potted. I replaced the
first one after about a year ($150) and I have added the failed one to my
list of projects. The Innotek device sells for about $250.

It is important that Shadow have good manners and obey me because I seldom
go anywhere without her. She loves to climb in the van for a nap even if we
are not going anywhere. She also has a microchip under her skin for positive
ID if she should get lost. Black Labs look a lot alike. I am thinking of a
thermal controlled auto start for the van. The current remote starter is not
reliable enough to assure she is safe and comfortable from the hot days.

I spend a bit of money on her but she is worth every penny! She has become a
part of me.
While you guys are inventing new devices, keep on with the dog
training/safety equipment. There are many customers in this area...

I saw something similar for cattle herding on TV. Each cow was given a
collar which had speakers by the cows ears and a small electric shock
device. By making a soft(ish) noise in one ear, the cow would be made to
turn the other way. As a final resort an electric shock can be applied to
make the cow turn. A GPS system checks where the cow is, whilst a uC in the
collar decides what limits to apply for the cows movements. The clever bit
is that this "virtual ranch" can be slowly moved from one place to another.
This way the grazed ground is continously changed and you can gradually but
automatically move a herd from one place to another. No long journeys by
lorry any more!
Like most good ideas- simple but clever at the same time!
