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 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.


We train your dog the day of installation and the process will be 80% complete on that day for most dogs. We will use a process individualized for your pet including tone, flags and correction. After training the first day we will instruct the pet owner on how to continue training. We will be available to help by phone or for return training session(s) if needed at no additional cost.

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