A simple, effective & reliable dog fence

A Dog Guard outdoor electronic fence is simple, but highly effective: All it takes is a wire, a transmitter and receiver. Then, with training from your local dealer, your dog will be free to roam and explore—safely.

How a Dog Guard electronic fence protects your dog

A buried wire sets the boundary

In addition to setting a perimeter, Dog Guard systems can limit access to areas such as pools and gardens.

The transmitter sends a signal

Once the wire is installed, a conveniently placed transmitter sends a harmless radio signal through it.

Your dog wears a Dog Guard receiver

Our receiver picks up the radio signal giving off an audible warning or a stimulating correction as needed.

Training completes the process

With training and temporary flags, the dog learns to stay within the boundary—so they can roam freely.

Dog Guard T-4 Transmitter


Our main transmitter can be used for parcels as large as 50 acres. It offers dual zones—your dog can receive a warning as they approach the boundary, and a stronger correction when they reach it. You can choose from different levels of stimulation for corrections!

“This underground system is keeping him safe in our yard.”

We are so glad we went with Dog Guard! Wonderful customer service. We have a friendly Golden Retriever that would love to play with other dogs ALL the time if he could. He is not venturing into the neighbors yard to try and play! The only problem is that he doesn’t want to come back inside! Highly recommend Dog Guard!

Underground dog fencing FAQs

What makes Dog Guard different?

We believe Dog Guard has the most effective—and the most flexible—electronic fencing system on the market, but our people are just as important.

We are family-owned, with pets of our own, so we understand how important your pets are to you. And thanks to our network of dealers across the country, you’ll be working with someone who is part of your community, someone who can provide support from installation to training and beyond.

Will a correction hurt my dog?

Corrections only occur when your pet attempts to pass the boundary—with proper training, they are rare. While they are unpleasant in order to deter your dog from straying, they are not harmful. And you can select from different settings to find the right level for your dog.

How much does a Dog Guard system cost?

The cost of a Dog Guard system depends on several factors, such as the number of dogs that will be on the system and the size of the property. Your local dealer will evaluate your property and needs before providing you with a written estimate.

Does it come with a warranty or guarantee?

Yes, the Dog Guard electronic fence system includes a money-back guarantee against containment failures. In addition, receivers and transmitters also come with a limited lifetime warranty.

Does Dog Guard work in big yards?

A Dog Guard system can cover up to 50 acres.

How do I know if the system is working properly?

Our main (outdoor) transmitter features lights to indicate the system is operational, along with an audible alarm to alert you if there is a problem such as a power surge or line break.
