Electric Dog Fence & Pet Containment System FAQ

Are electric dog fences effective?

Electronic pet fences, when used properly and as instructed, have a great success rate. The most common reasons for failure involve incomplete or improper training or a misunderstanding of system functions. If you read all instructions and follow them to completion, you are far more likely to have a positive experience with your pet containment system.

How do electronic pet fences work?

For wired or in-ground electronic dog fences, a boundary wire surrounding the containment area is connected to the transmitter, which is mounted inside your basement, garage, or other appropriate indoor area. The boundary wire emits a radio signal which totally surrounds the wire, creating a signal field of adjustable width. If your dog enters the signal field while wearing his receiver collar, the collar responds by beeping followed by electronic correction if he does not retreat. With proper training, your pet will learn to avoid the training flags, and to retreat upon hearing the warning beep.

Wireless dog fences operate in a similar way, with the main difference being the way the collar responds to the signal. Wireless dog fence transmitters produce a mostly circular signal area with the transmitter at it's center. The signal area's size varies by model and manufacturer. With wireless systems, the collar is activated when it goes outside the signal field boundary, at which time it will beep and/or correct.

Indoor pet fences work to exclude pets from areas where they shouldn't go, or to create boundaries indoors. Indoor systems normally employ a small transmitter which creates a fairly small wireless exclusion area, big enough to block a doorway, piece of furniture, or rug.

Which electronic dog fence system should I purchase?

You must consider a few things when determining the right pet fence for your situation. Do you need outdoor coverage, indoor exclusion areas, or both? Is your pet timid, stubborn, or somewhere in between? Is the system for your cat? Yes, there are even electronic cat fences available, and most 'dog fences' can also be used for cats as long as the receivers are not too large. There are many different systems on the market today, and there are wide variations in quality and features.

Most dog fence kits come in kits which contain everything you need, even training flags. If you want to install your system on a property which is larger than the included wire will cover, you can purchase extra wire, flags, splice kits, sod staples, or any other accessories you may require. If you have multiple pets, you can also purchase additional collars for your pet fence system.

How do I install the fence?

Generally speaking, in-ground pet fences are relatively simple to install. The system's transmitter must be installed in an indoor location, and properly grounded according to the included instructions. Boundary wire is installed around the containment area then attached to the transmitter.

Where can I install the wire?

Dog fence wire can be installed underground, but burial is not required. The wire can also be installed above ground secured with sod staples, attached to physical structures such as fences, or even through streams or lakes. Installations in rough terrain or other challenges may warrant the use of heavy-duty wire.

What if I don't want to install the wire myself?

Check our our new Dog Fence Installation Services page for information on having PetStuffWarehouse.com help with your new dog fence boundary wire installation. Training services may also be offered in your area. Availability for these new services will vary according to your location.

How do I train my dog to use the system?

Proper training to your dog fence is imperative so that your dog fully understands how to respond to the system. Most dog fence systems include full training instructions, along with training flags for visual boundary indication.

How old or big must my pet be to be trained to the fence?

First of all, your pet should be well adjusted to the home environment before you start training. We recommend that your pet be at least twelve weeks old, but has no minimum or maximum size limitations. It is helpful if your dog is accustomed to the leash before beginning training.

Will the correction hurt my pet?

The correction is safe, harmless and humane. It is just strong enough to startle your pet. The correction produces less energy than that produced by a static shock from carpeting.

How long will it take to train my dog to the fence?

If dog fence training is performed properly, most dogs are fully trained in about ten to fourteen days. We recommend loose supervision for another two weeks after initial training is completed before leaving your pet unsupervised for more than a few minutes at a time.

Is PetStuffWarehouse.com associated with Invisible Fence®, Petsafe®, Contain a Pet®, Innotek®, Dogwatch®, Dog Guard®, Pet Stop® or any other pet fence brand?

We are an authorized reseller of many retail pet fence brands, and have experience through our local Alabama dealership with many professional dog fence brands such as those mentioned above. However, we are not authorized dealers for Invisible Fence, Dogwatch, or Dog Guard brand dog fences, though we sometimes offer previously owned products made by these manufacturers for sale. Additionally, we carry dog fence batteries and many other products compatible with professional pet fencing brands.

Why is PetStuffWarehouse.com a better choice than other online dog fence retailers?

Since we founded our Alabama Dog Fence dealership in 1994, we have installed over 8000 dog fence systems and trained more than 10,000 pets to use them. As one of the top pet fence dealerships in America, we have knowledge which can only be gained through extensive experience with many varying situations. No online competitor can claim the range of pet containment knowledge that we do, or even come close to the level of industry competence offered by the Pet Fence Experts at PetStuffWarehouse.com.

Can I take my system with me if I move?

Absolutely. All you’ll need is wire installation to fence in the boundaries at your new location. If you don't want to perform the installation again, click here for information on our New Dog Fence Installation Services.

Can I use an underground dog fence for my aggressive dog?

We do not recommend the use of an electric dog fence for a dog with a history of biting or aggressive behavior. The only exception is when the system supports a pre-existing wooden or chain link fence. Use of electronic corrections with known aggressive dogs is not recommended; instead, we suggest you call a quality professional dog trainer for their recommendations.
