We're thinking of installing an "Invisible Fence" like system to contain our poodles – a miniature and standard puppy. I'm inclined to purchase parts and install it ourselves rather than have a contractor do it. Are there important features to look for in selecting a system?
Some of the features that I think we'd like are:
- A small, light collar for the miniature
- Rechargeable batteries
- Battery backup for power outages
- A remote to disable the system when taking the dog(s) across the barrier
- Integration with a dog door (collar identifies dog to the door)
