Why a Dog Guard® Underground Pet Fence is Just Plain BETTER!
All Dog Guard products are made in the USA (Troy, NY)
The Dog Guard Transmitter has a “Dual Correction Zone” feature that that helps prevent dogs from running through the signal field. The signal for this zone does NOT fluctuate and can be easily changed by the pet owner (with out expensive service fees).
The transmitter has 32 levels of stimulation for correction control matched to the size of your pet and which can also be easily changed by the pet owner at the transmitter (with out expensive service fees).
The receiver worn by your pet is specifically encoded to assure that your pet will not receive stray connections from a neighboring system or other electronics. Our receivers are also guaranteed to be waterproof, eliminating expensive fees stemming from water damage.
We offer a variety of receiver sizes that are matched to dog's size.
Wire is 14 gauge copper clad stainless wire with extra heavy poly vinyl sheath.
How a Dog Guard® Out-of-Sight Fencing® System Works
After your signal wire is buried to define the area(s) of containment (indicated in white to the right), boundary flags are setup within the perimeter of the signal wire. During the early days of training, you walk your leashed dog around the inside perimeter of your pet containment area, and verbal commands are used to train your pet to avoid the boundary flags. After your system is activated, when your pet enters the reminder zone (in yellow) 3 to 6 feet from the signal wire, they receive your choice of an audio signal or a mild correction stimulus, warning that they are approaching the boundary. If they enter the red correction zone, they receive a stronger correction.
A Complete Dog Guard® Out of Sight Fencing System includes:
1 Dog Guard® Lightning Protection Unit
Automatically disconnects the transmitter in case of AC power surges and lightning.
1 Dog Guard® 7K transmitter (more about our transmitters)
Transmits the radio frequency to and throughout the buried signal/boundary wire. Also controls the depth of the correction zone, (the signal field or distance from the wire before a reminder or correction stimulus is used).
1 DG9XT, DG5000 or DG Micro receiver with nylon collar (see our receivers)
Worn by your pet and used to produce a tone or correction stimulus when they enter the reminder or correction zones (i.e., the signal field).
500 feet of signal/boundary wire
Carries the signal from the transmitter that defines the areas your pet can and cannot go, but does NOT carry any current of any kind*.
Matching chew protectors
Used to protect the receiver from damage by your pet.
50 boundary flags
Used during training to help your pet visually recognize where they can and cannot go.
6 burial splices
Probes are nickel plated brass (available in various sizes and shapes) used by your Dog Guard dealer to assemble and configure your receiver for optimum contact and efficiency.
To ensure their reliability and performance, Dog Guard batteries are specially welded together. Unlike our competitors' multiple cell batteries which run the risk of breaking contact, DG batteries maintain 100% connection. Sign up for our optional Battery Plan, and help insure the safety of your pet while avoiding the chance of receiver problems stemming from battery failure!
