How our Dog Containment System works

Hidden Fence brand offers The DogWatch Hidden Fence dog Containment System. Only Hidden Fence uses a Patented “Safelink FM/DM digital signal” that’s transmitted through a tough polyethylene coated copper boundary wire installed around your property, below ground level or on a fence line. A lightweight, waterproof dog fence receiver collar worn by your pet picks up this harmless signal.

When your pet gets close to the desired boundary (usually within 1/4 to 2 meters of the wire), an audible warning tone reminds your pet not to cross the boundary. If the warning is ignored, which is rare after training, the collar emits a customised stimulation (electrical stimulation or ES ) and prevents your pet from crossing. After the hidden dog fence is installed, the dog is then introduced to the dog fencing system.

Through operant conditioning principles and clear instruction, your dog becomes well aware of the location of his new boundary fence, and receives reward when he avoids it. Hidden Fence will even train highly prey driven dogs using various target sources throughout the dog training if needed.
