How Do Dog Guard® Fences Work?

Dog Guard Out-of-Sight Fencing® is the perfect way to keep your pup safe, comfortable, and happy in the yard. However, you may wonder, "How do underground fencing systems even work?" Read on to learn exactly how Dog Guard Out-of-Sight Fencing® works and how it can reinforce safety and confidence for your canine best friend.

How It Works

Our Out-of-Sight Fencing System® uses a digital radio signal to keep your dog within the boundaries. A thin wire is placed underground, creating the safety perimeter designed by you and your local Dog Guard® Dealer. Each installation is customized, which means you define the boundaries for your dog. Once the signal wire is buried to create the containment area, boundary flags are set up within the perimeter. The Dog Guard® Dealer who installs your system will provide you with training and instructions with to acclimate your dog to their boundaries! Your dog is given a comfortable collar with a small receiver to wear around its neck. This receiver works with the signal wire and emits a safe stimulus level when your dog approaches the barrier. If your dog continues forward, a second field emits the maximum correction to prevent escape.

The Equipment

Depending on the size of the dog and where the boundaries are, we offer different kinds of transmitters and receivers.

  • Our T-4 Transmitter is for yards up to 50 acres and uses "dual-zones" to warn your pet to turn back and then to correct them if they proceed.
  • The RT-2 Room Transmitter is for inside the house. This transmitter is smaller and portable, for various rooms in your home.
  • The Surge Protector is designed specifically for Dog Guard®. They work to ensure our system (even the underground wire) is extra protected from power surges.
  • DG9XT Receiver: made to handle "medium-to-stubborn and tough-to-train" dogs.
  • DG5 Receiver: for "small, timid, passive and up to medium-sized" dogs.
  • DGM4R Receiver: a rechargeable receiver for the "tiny pets" weighing from one to ten pounds, all the way up to some medium pets.
