Nope and that was one of the reasons we decided against it. Instead, I put up a chain link all by myself.
Not only can you not keep oterh animals out of your yard, but if your dog somehow gets out, they will not want to go near the line for fear of getting shocked so they won't go back in.
Also, some types of dogs are more motivated by chasing something like a squirrel that they'll go right through it without thinking about it. And once they realize that it's only a brief shock that doesn't last, they'll have little hesitation to go through it again. If that happens you've just spend a lot of money on something that no longer works.
