Invisible dog fence on solar power

Hello,
I’ve been reaching out to several invisible dog fence companies on how to run the fence on my 40 acre off grid property. Is there a simple way to do this?
I run my horse fencing off a solar unit but the canine fencing companies don’t work off 12 volt batteries.

    What is the energy draw off of 120volt? Perhaps a small setup with an inverter.

    Looks like at least the Pet Safe run on 12 volts/2 amps, Not sure of the 'real draw' but about 25 watts available 24/7 would require about 50 amps That's a pretty good sized load. You might do that with a 2 golf cart battery system and a couple hundred watts of array. It's quite a bit more demand than a Hot wire, I think  my 120 version uses 6 watts AC I have no idea what a solar hot wire uses, but I'm sure less.
