I am trying to build a 'barrier' wireless dog fence. I could simply run the wire around my whole yard and be done, but much of it is already fenced in and I do not want to restrict access to that fenced in area (Dog likes to meet dogs on other side of the fence.. running the wire would prevent the dog from doing so).
with my yard, I have to cross a driveway and on the outer edge of the driveway, there isn't enough space to loop the wire back (if I need ~6ft space when looping.. I only have about 3-4 ft).
I want to start at the first port, loop down around the front yard, cross the driveway and up the side of the yard to where the Chain link fence begins. What I want to do there is to splice the wire into two (2) pieces of wire (so 3 way splice). Those 2 wires would then be twisted back close the second port, where I would splice the two back into a single wire. This is still a continuous loop isn't it? Why won't this work? (Will this diminish the wire signal? Do the wires have to be opposite traveling when twisted to effectively cancel the wire signal? See attached diagram for a visual. Any suggestions to accomplish that cancelation across the back part of the house?
