How Electric Dog Fences Work

Dog Guard Out-ofSight Fencing utilizes a digital radio signal to keep your dog within selected boundaries. By placing a thin 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.

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.


The boundary is marked off with flags, creating a visible boundary line for your dog(s). We spend time immediately after the installation working with both you and your dog(s) doing the initial training. Using a series of commands, visuals, audible tones, physical correction and rewards most dogs are trained in under 1 hour. For 3 days after the installation, you should spend fifteen minutes, 2-3 times daily, walking your dog(s) around the flagged boundary and using training reinforcements to ensure the dog(s) fully understands their new boundary. By using these techniques, your dog(s) will quickly learn where the boundary is located. Once your dog(s) becomes familiar with the visible boundary, the flags can be removed.

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