Peace of Mind.
Freedom & Safety for Your Pet
DogWatch® Hidden Fences keep your pets safe and are safe for your pets. Our hidden fences allow pets to run, play and exercise so they stay happy and healthy. With DogWatch, your pets will stay safely in your yard and away from places you don't want them to be.
Designed with both you and your pet in mind.
A Consumers Digest ‘Best Buy’
The DogWatch Hidden Fence is rated a Consumers Digest ‘Best Buy’ in the underground pet-containment category. We are the only underground pet-containment system to earn a ‘Premium Selection’ designation (i.e., a full-featured product that delivers excellent performance).
We offer a 30-day Equipment Buy Back if you are not satisfied with your Hidden Fence.
Customized Just For You
We help you design a system to fit your yard and your lifestyle.
You can designate “pet-free” zones within the fence boundary.
Works with any size property from small yards to 200-acre farms.
Works with all breeds, ages and personalities of dogs and most cats.
No limit to the number of dogs (or cats) per system — each pet wears an individually programmed pet fence collar.
Works in concert with our Indoor Boundaries for seamless transition from outside containment to inside pet management.
DogWatch works coast-to-coast and in many other parts of the world. If you move, you can take your system with you.
We offer safe and effective PetFriendly™ training by experienced professionals that makes it easy for pets to learn in a few sessions.
After we install your hidden fence system, it is unlikely that you will need to adjust anything. However, should an adjustment be needed, all our equipment has easy to understand and adjust settings without the hassle or expense of an in-home service call.
Lifetime Equipment Warranty
We include a Lifetime Equipment Warranty on our Dealer installed outdoor systems on both the transmitter and receiver (including dog chews on receivers!) at no additional cost.
Lead Free Products
DogWatch products are compliant with the Reduction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) initiative - a European-based initiative to reduce the amount of lead and other hazardous metals in electronic products.
Small package. Outstanding Performance.
The R9 receiver, our most popular, is a full feature receiver with a battery life of up to two years.
The R7 mini is a Big Product in a small package. It is the smallest receiver available at only 1.1 ounces (including the battery!), Perfect for small dogs and cats!
2-Year Battery Life
DogWatch receivers have the longest battery life in the industry. Compare DogWatch to 3-4 months battery life in other brands. Fewer battery changes = greater safety for your pet and less expense for you (and better for the environment.)
DogWatch receivers have multiple settings for different pet personalities and can be set individually for each pet. The settings are easy to understand and easy to adjust – no service call required.
The multi-function status light on the receiver lets you know if the battery is low or needs to be replaced. It also shows you if your pet has recently challenged the boundary (the “Tattletale” feature).
High Impact, Waterproof
The DogWatch receiver is tested to withstand the harsh outdoor elements of rain, sleet and snow . . . as well as rigorous play!
If your pet challenges the boundary, this patented safety feature automatically increases the receiver level for 24 hours.
GentleFit™ Contact Posts
These unique contact posts are easy on your dog’s skin. They are smooth like our standard stainless steel contact posts to minimize friction and low profile for a comfortable Pet-Friendly fit. Purrfect for cats and dogs with short coats.
Audible or Vibration Boundary Warning Alert
DogWatch offers your choice of either an audible or a vibration warning to alert your pet that he is approaching the fence boundary. The vibration alert is perfect for hearing impaired pets.
If your dog runs at the boundary, the receiver reacts with a warning signal before he reaches the wire, not while he is traveling over it.
The most advanced technology and the easiest to use.
DogWatch is the ONLY hidden fence that uses an FM frequency; all other hidden dog fences operate on an AM signal.
SafeLink® Digital FM Technology
Our patented digital FM technology provides the maximum protection against false activation caused by stray radio signals. DogWatch is the only pet fence system that offers FM technology – and that makes DogWatch the most secure and the most Pet-Friendly™ hidden fence available.
Flexible Training Levels
The combination of settings on the DogWatch transmitter and receiver offers up to twenty easy to understand options to ensure safe and appropriate training and containment for your pet. You can even set your system to “audible only” when introducing your dog to his new boundaries.
Range Setting and Loop Monitor
This dual function display allows you to set the width of the signal field to best meet the personalities of your pet(s): The lights on the display are an easy way to see the signal field setting and they are also a visual alert if there is a change in the strength of the boundary signal or to a break in the boundary wire. If there is an wire break, there is also an warning alarm that alerts you to check the system. This is an invaluable safety feature for underground fences.
Your DogWatch pet fence is protected should your home experience an electrical surge due to lightning. We’ve gone to extremes, like no one else, to equip your DogWatch Hidden Fence with both internal and external surge protection. External Surge Protection directs power surges and lightning from the boundary wire to the ground rod into the earth and away from your home. Internal Surge Protection suppresses surges coming in through your house wiring and diverts them to your house ground.
