Pet Fencing

Protecting Your Pets…Without Hiding Your Property Behind a Fence

How does it work? A wire is installed around the perimeter of your property, pool, flowerbeds or any other perimeter you would like to have your pet refrain from, establishing your pet's boundary. A transmitter, placed in your basement, garage or under your deck, sends a radio signal along the wire. The radio signal is picked up by your pet's collar, which emits a warning sound or correction when your pet approaches the boundary. During the training process, we will introduce the customized static correction to your pet which reinforces the boundaries of your property and tells your pet clearly where they can and cannot go.  The collar is fastened around the pets neck much like a regular collar would. This collar will receive a signal from the wire should your pet get too close to any areas that are off limits.  The first thing that will happen is your pet will hear a warning tone if it gets too close to the area that is off limits. Should your pet continue to get even closer then the collar will deliver a mild shock.

After a couple weeks of training on the electric pet fence your pet will begin to understand where its new boundaries are. After it receives a couple corrections from the collar, your pet will more than likely not test the limits of the containment area and probably will not get close enough to receive any more corrections.

At DHS Inc., we supply and install the PetSafe® in ground wired fence system.  A PetSafe® Brand system is safe and humane. It is highly recommended by veterinarians, professional dog trainers, behaviorists and other pet experts.  We also repair any damage to your existing irrigation and/or lighting system caused by the installation of the pet fence…a service we are often contracted to do for other pet fence installation companies.

Example…

For cats


This deluxe in-ground fencing system was designed to let your cat be himself in the safety of your yard. It provides safe and reliable containment for your cat with tone-only plus 4 levels of correction that take her temperament into account. The collar has a special stretch section for your cat's safety, and a battery-life indicator to assure you that the collar is working.

For dogs


This deluxe in-ground fence system includes a compact UltraLight™ receiver and adjustable collar that weighs only 70 grams (2.5 ounces). Innovative features like built-in lightning protection and a low-battery indicator ensure that you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your pet will be right where you left him.

 

Fertigation

Introducing the EZ-FLO System

Having an EZ-FLO System is like having a full-time gardener fertilizing your property every time you water, carefully feeding the entire landscape and caring for the soil and all the plant life. EZ-FLO feeds gently, in small amounts, every time your irrigation system waters, allowing the plants to develop healthier root masses that make them stronger, more drought tolerant and less susceptible to insects and disease.

EZ-FLO Main Line Systems attach directly to your in-ground sprinkler and drip irrigation system. Every time you use your irrigation system, EZ-FLO releases small, precision doses of water soluble or liquid fertilizers into the water stream automatically. One system will feed through both sprinkler and drip irrigation zones without the need to make any adjustments or nozzle changes to compensate for water flow or water pressure.                              Download EZ-FLO Environmental Benefits   

Main Line Systems have been designed to connect directly to your irrigation system after an approved backflow prevention device. They are designed to withstand constant static water pressure present in your irrigation system. These units are constructed of heavy-walled, UV-Resistant PVC and have no moving parts making them very reliable, dependable and maintenance-free.

EZ-FLO technology has the ability to liquify highly concentrated, water-soluble fertilizers and proportion them into the irrigation water stream in extremely low doses.   It is a unique form of fertigation.  We call it "Micro-Dosing".

Micro-Dosing simply means that an EZ-FLO fertigation unit can proportion fertilizers into the irrigation water stream at very small parts per million (PPM) ratios.  Currently our main-line units proportion at rates between 400:1 on the Fast Setting all the way to 15,000:1 on the slow setting.

This is equivalent at full concentrate of 67 PPM at the "Slow" setting and 2,500  PPM at the "Fast" setting.  When calculating PPM for a given fertilizer blend, you then need to multiply by the percentage concentration (evidenced by the NPK numbers) for that fertilizer.

For example, with our 25-15-10 blend, that means that we can proportion N down to 16 PPM.  If you use our 10-20-30 blend, this means that the parts per million N is 7.  The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of the US Government has set a standard for what is considered Clean Drinking Water in the US of 10 PPM for Nitrogen.  There are no such standards set for P or K.

The higher the concentration levels of the fertilizer (N-P-K), the more variability you can have in the final mix when it comes out of the sprinkler head or drip emitter.  That's why we give you control over how fast the fertilizer can be dispensed.

In a more meaningful context, on the Slow setting, an EZ-FLO main-line unit proportions fertilizer out at one twentieth of a teaspoon per gallon of water.  At the Fast setting, two teaspoons.  Most people would agree that this is a very small amount.  But this small amount works since it is applied every time with every drop of water.
