Default Invisible Fence Questions

I want to install an invisible type fence in my backyard, and have a few
questions:

1) Since I will be running a loop around the backyard, how can I allow the
dog to get into the backyard? The door she will be leaving the house from
leads to a 3' high deck. If the wire is on the ground under the deck, is
that far enough away? Or can I run it through a steel pipe, or something
like that?

2) Is lightning protection worth the extra $40? Is lightning a threat, and
does the protector actually protect anything?

3) On the fence at my old house the genuine invisible fence let me find
breaks (3 over 7 years) with an AM radio. Apparently the newer ones don't
work like that. Is one brand easier to find breaks than others?

4) I need only the simplist system available; I suspect simply putting up
the flags would be enough for my dog, but don't want to take the chance. Is
one cheap unit better than others?

Thanks.
