How Electric Dog Fences Work

Dog Guard Out of Sight Fencing utilizes a digital radio signal to keep your dog within selected boundaries. By placing a 14g solid copper wire underground, our professional team creates the safety perimeter we design together.

A comfortable collar containing a small receiver is worn around your dog’s neck. This receiver works with the radio signal, which emits an appropriate stimulus level as your dog approaches the barrier. If your dog continues to advance, a second field produces maximum correction to prevent escape.

Because each installation is customized, you define the boundaries. We will work with you to protect your pet from driveways, pools, and other dangerous areas. Our system can also protect your flower beds, shrubs or other areas from your playful pet. We also have indoor boundaries to keep dogs out of the trash, away from the mud room or from around the Christmas tree.

Dog Guard Out of Sight Fencing is a safe, affordable alternative to traditional pet fences, and uses a veterinarian-approved combination of animal training and state-of-the art electronics to safely train your pet where it can and cannot go.

Training


We will train your pet the day of installation. We use a two step process involving a tone, flags and verbal command PRIOR to giving any correction. We feel this is the most fair for your dog. This gives them the opportunity to understand the new boundary first and minimizes the number of corrections your pet receives. Your dog will be trained and off leash when we leave. We guarantee containment!

Once the dog becomes familiar with the visible boundary, the flags can be removed. After your system is activated, when your pet enters the reminder zone (typically 3 feet from the wire) they receive an audio signal with a mild correction stimulus, warning that they are approaching the boundary. If they continue towards the perimeter, the signal becomes more intense, reminding them to stay in the yard.

Our highly-trained pet behavior specialists will work with you and your pet throughout the initial process to make sure training techniques and boundaries are clearly defined.
