How a DogWatch® Hidden Fence Works
Our System keeps an eye on your dog by transmitting a coded FM digital radio signal through a boundary wire installed around your yard at ground level or just below. This harmless signal is picked up by a lightweight waterproof receiver collar worn by your dog. Depending on the size of your property and the needs of your dog, signal range may vary from the boundary wire. We will adjust the range that is most suitable for your dog and yard. When your dog gets close to the boundary wire, an audible warning reminds your dog not to cross. If the warning is ignored - rare after training - the collar emits a correction, which can also be adjusted to meet the needs of your dog.

DogWatch® wants you to feel confident that your DogWatch system is protected should your home experience an electrical surge due to lightning. That’s why we’ve gone to extremes, like no one else, to equip your DogWatch® Hidden Fence with both internal and external surge protection.
This means you have ultimate protection from electrical surges that travel (1) into your house through other sources or (2) through the underground boundary wire in your yard. This unique two-way protection was developed and thoroughly tested by experts in the field of lightning expressly for DogWatch® products.
We’re so confident that our lightning and surge protection is unsurpassed, that we provide a lifetime warranty with your transmitter when your system is properly installed and grounded by us. DogWatch® cannot change Mother Nature or eliminate surges from hitting close to home, but we can help minimize the potential damage caused by surges to your DogWatch® Hidden Fence System.
