WARNING: To avoid injury make sure there are no buried electrical cables in the surrounding area where you will
lay your Boundary Wire. Electric power lines, natural gas pipelines, communications lines and other utility services,
if damaged, can create a hazard that could endanger you and your property. Call your local utility company before
you dig to identify whether you have underground lines in the area where you want to lay your Boundary Wire. If
there are utility lines in the area, do not install this product and seek assistance from a trained electrician.

It is important to read this section completely before beginning to train your dog to use the Sunbeam®
Essential In-Ground Fencing System. The System is not a solid fence and will not contain your pet as
well as a solid fence. Do not allow your dog to run free until the training process is complete. Keep your
dog on a leash, tied down, or conned to a separate area until training is complete. Proper training is
necessary to achieve the best results.
PriortouseofthesystemyourdogshouldweartheReceiverCollarwithoutturningiton.Thiswillallowthedog

IMPORTANT: If your dog shows signs of stress you will need to slow down the training process. Go back
to a step where your dog feels comfortable and proceed slowly through the training process. Increasing
play time in the Safe Zone can also make the dog more comfortable.
