The Dogtra EF3500 is one of the best invisible dog fencing systems for dogs from 7kg in weight. The receiver collar is fully waterproof and rechargeable with built in 2 hours fast charge battery. Collar has 8 manual adjustable output to suit different dog’s temperament. The high output transmitter box is capable to run up to 40 acres/1600 metres wire (extra wire purchased separately).
How does it work?
Put the containment system wire along the boundary (by underground or attach onto your existing fence – except for colourbond fence*). The wire starts from Dogtra EF3500 transmitter box and back to the transmitter box to create a complete loop. The Dogtra EF3500 transmitter plugs into a standard Australia power outlet, then it emits a radio signal that runs along the containment system wire. Please note: The radio transmitter is NOT water resistant and need to be under cover.
When the dog with EF3500 collar on walks near the radio activated area (adjustable from approx 40cm to 6 metres on each side of the wire), the collar picks up the signal then alerts him with an optional vibration warning (can be turned off). If the dog stays in the activate zone or continues towards the fencing boundary, he will receive a max 12 seconds preset level (manually adjustable from level 1 to 8) of correction similar to a static pulse.
*Big colorbond fence or shed could affect the radio signal so we recommend do not attach the containment wire direct onto colorbond material. Best to keep a little bit distance. However, it is fine to attach the wire onto traditional wire fence, pool fence, pole fence, tubular fence etc.
The Dogtra EF3500 has 2 stimulation modes which is adjustable from the transmitter.
Mode 1: Vibration only. The dog will only receive a vibration from the collar when it walks into the activated zone. NO static stimulation is given.
Mode 2: Off. The collar would no do anything when the dog enters the activated zone.
Mode 3: Pager/Stimulation. When the dog walks into the activated area, he will receiver an vibration warning from the collar. And if the dog stays longer in the area, he will receive a preset level of stimulation (from level 1 to 8).
The EF3500 collar has intensity dail which means you can set different output for each dog to accommodate different personality and temperament.
The stimulation levels range from level 1 to level 8, level 1 being the lowest. In order to select the proper intensity level for each dog, we recommend that you start with level 1 and increase the level slowly until you can see the reaction from the dog (starts looking around).
