    How the Wireless Fence with Remote Trainer for Home and Travel works The system comes with a portable Wireless Fence Unit that establishes an invisible boundary by transmitting radio signals to the Pet Collar Unit. When your dog reaches the boundary zone (about 2 to 3 feet before the “real” boundary), the Pet Collar Unit that is worn on your dog emits a warning beep followed by static correction to get its attention until it backs away from the boundary zone.
