Important Precautions
• Invisible Fence® Brand pet containment systems have contained over two million pets. However, there are some
precautions you should take.
• Read and retain manuals: Read the entire Owner’s Manual before using your new Invisible Fence® Brand pet containment
system.
• Adhere to all warnings and cautions contained in any Invisible Fence® Brand manual.
This is the safety alert symbol. It is used to alert you to potential personal injury hazards. Obey all safety
messages that follow this symbol to avoid possible injury or death.
WARNING indicates a hazardous situation which, if not avoided, could result in
injury.
death or serious
CAUTION used with the safety alert symbol, indicates a hazardous situation which, if not avoided,
could result in minor or moderate injury.
NOTICE is used to address safe use practices not related to personal injury.
• Replacing the battery backup with a battery not specifically approved by Invisible Fence® Brand may cause fire or
explosion. Refer all service to your Invisible Fence® Brand Dealer only.
• Not every pet can be trained to avoid the established boundary. Sometimes even a properly trained pet may cross the
boundary. Therefore, Invisible Fence, Inc., as well as Invisible Fence® Distributors and Dealers, cannot guarantee the system
will, in all cases, keep a customer’s pet within the established boundary. Accordingly, if a customer has reason to believe that
their pet may pose a danger to others, or harm itself, the customer should not rely solely upon the Invisible Fence® Brand pet
containment system to keep the pet from crossing the boundary.
• Do not install, connect, or remove your system during a lightning storm. If the storm is close enough for you to hear
thunder, it is close enough to create hazardous surges.
• Read and follow the important instructions on how to avoid pressure necrosis in your Invisible Fence® Brand Computer
Collar® Unit manual.
• Train your pet according to the instructions in the Invisible Fence® Brand training manuals. Complete all steps before
allowing your pet to run free. Do not become overly confident if your pet has become conditioned to the Invisible Fence®
Brand pet containment system sooner than expected.
• Your Invisible Fence® Brand Dealer has professionally installed your pet containment system and ensured it is working
properly. You will want to perform periodic maintenance checks to make sure the system is properly functioning for your
pet’s safe containment.
• Check the Invisible Fence® Brand transmitter periodically to make sure it is operating properly. To do this, simply bring the
Computer Collar® Unit to the edge of the containment field to verify function.
• The transmitter has visual and audible signals to warn of a system malfunction. The transmitter should be installed where such
signals may be easily seen and heard. If the transmitter is installed by the customer in an enclosed box, or in a place not
readily accessible to the customer, the customer will not benefit from the system’s warning functions, for which Invisible
Fence, Inc., as well as Invisible Fence® Distributors and Dealers, assume no responsibility.
• Do not attempt to service any Invisible Fence® Brand equipment. Refer all service to your authorized Invisible Fence®
Brand Dealer. Only your authorized Invisible Fence® Brand Dealer should make adjustments to your pet containment
system.
• All Invisible Fence® Brand pet containment systems are designed for domesticated animal use only. Never attempt to use
this product for any purpose not specifically described in this manual.
• Use care when mowing, aerating, or trimming your lawn so as not to cut the loop wire.
• If you have any questions about any aspect of your Invisible Fence® Brand pet containment system, call your Invisible Fence®
Brand Dealer immediately.

Components
How the System Works
The Boundary Plus® Single Loop Transmitter is designed to work with an Invisible Fence® Brand Computer Collar® Unit to
contain your pet within areas you choose, or teach your pet to avoid specific areas such as flower beds, gardens, or pools. The
transmitter produces a signal that travels along the signal field wire and back to the transmitter to produce an Invisible
Boundary® barrier.
When your pet approaches the established boundary, the Computer Collar® Unit generates a tone and correction to remind
your pet of the boundary. With training and praise, your pet will quickly learn to stay within or avoid the established
boundary.
Definition: A correction is a training term used to describe an action taken to discourage unwanted pet behavior. The Computer
Collar® Unit applies a correction when your pet crosses the boundary of an Invisible Fence® Brand electronic pet containment system.
Corrections are used in combination with rewards to alter unwanted pet behavior.
Your Invisible Fence® Brand pet containment system will only work when:
a. The adapter is connected to the transmitter and to a functional standard electric outlet, via an approved Lightning
Protection Device. All Invisible Fence® Brand pet containment systems must be grounded per the National Electric
Code to be protected against lightning (for North American customers only).
b. The transmitter is on, connected to the signal field wire, and producing a signal along the entire length of the wire.
c. The signal field wire is intact, continuous, and the transmitter’s Status Indicator Light is blinking blue.
d. The Computer Collar® Unit is correctly fitted and worn by your pet. The Computer Collar® Unit must be adjusted so that
both of the correction posts touch your pet’s skin.
e. The Power Cap® Battery in the Computer Collar® Unit is good and correctly installed.
About Thunder and Electrical Storms: Even though your Invisible Fence® Brand pet containment system is equipped
with a Lightning Protection Device (for North American customers only), it is still possible that it may be damaged during a
thunderstorm, or when an electrical storm is in the area. After a storm has ended, check the signal field width. See page 5 for
periodic maintenance checks.

Transmitter Status Indicators
Status Indicator Light: This is the only light visible outside the transmitter. The chart below explains the various Status
Indicator Light conditions.
Audible Alarm: There is an audible alarm for certain alert conditions (see chart below). Pressing either the Mode or CFG
button on the transmitter circuit board will silence the alarm. The alarm will re-activate on power-up if a failure condition still
exists. Access t h e Mode and CFG buttons by gently lifting upward on the top of the cover. T h e t o p c o v e r w i l l r e m a i n

Periodic Maintenance Checks
Your Invisible Fence® Brand Dealer has professionally installed your pet containment system and ensured it is working
properly. You will want to perform periodic maintenance checks to make sure the system is properly functioning for your
pet’s containment.
System Device
How often
What to look for
Computer Collar® Unit
Daily
• Check Power Cap® Battery status light on top of unit.
• Review status indicators chart in Computer Collar® Unit manual.
Signal Field
Monthly and after a
thunderstorm
• Verify the signal field wire is active throughout the
property; see “Monthly Signal Field Test” below.
Monthly Signal Field Test
You should always be aware of your system’s signal field.
Check the signal field from only one place on the signal field loop wire. Always check the
signal field from the same place. Take the Computer Collar® Unit off your pet to measure
the signal field.
1. Hold the Invisible Fence® Brand Computer Collar® Unit so it is parallel to the signal
field wire.
2. Hold the collar so it is about the same height and at the same angle as it will be when
the pet is wearing it.
3. Walk slowly toward the signal field wire. The Computer Collar® Unit will activate when
you reach the buried signal field wire. Do NOT touch the correction posts at this
time!
4. Move back into the safe area; raise the Computer Collar® Unit to twice the height of your
pet and repeat Step 3. The Computer Collar® Unit will activate when you reach the buried
signal field wire.
If the Computer Collar® Unit does not sound a warning tone where the signal is supposed
to be, immediately call your Invisible Fence® Brand Dealer for service. Use a leash (lead) or
other means to contain your pet until all necessary service has been completed.
