Can I install an electric dog fence in a townhouse?

I live in a townhouse, and would like to install an electric dog fence. Does the underground wire have to loop the property, or can I make it surround the 3 sides of the backyard?

    I might be wrong, but I think in order for an electric current to work, it has to loop and connect somehow?

    "Remember that the wire must make a loop. In other words, you can't dead end with an unattached wire—it must complete a circuit from the transmitter, around the area you wish to protect, and back to the transmitter again. "

    You dont have to loop around the entire property.. you can just loop it around the area you want your dog to have access to.. but it must make a loop for the electric current to work.

    You should be able to make it work; the only issue is that the wire has to make a loop of some kind. You can do it by having it double back over itself along the perimeter, or you could simply circle the yard including on the 4th edge.
