How The DogFence Systems Work

How Dog Fence Works To Keep Your Pet Safe

DogFence offer a hidden fence comprising a central control box which is connected to a boundary wire that usually runs around the perimeter of the property. The control box sends a coded FM radio signal which is transmitted through the boundary wire that has been laid around the property. The boundary wire acts as an antenna and is simply broadcasting a digital FM radio signal.

When the cables leave the control box they are run as a twisted pair which cancels the radio signal – once the cables reach the boundary the cables are split which starts the radio signal. The size of the signal emitted by the control box can be enlarged or reduced according to the customers’ requirements.

The computer collar that your pet wears, houses a tiny FM receiver, and as the pet moves towards the signal the collar emits an audible signal to indicate to the pet to stop and turn back. If the pet continues towards the wire the collar gives a small impulse (similar to a static carpet shock) set to the pet’s individual requirements.

With the use of some visual training flags our expert installers will teach your dog how to avoid the no go area.

After completing the training your pet will quickly learn to understand warning beep, and will immediately turn back into the allowed zone. To aid the pet during training DogFence use a series of flags as a visual training aids. The pet therefore has something to hear, something to see and ultimately something to feel.
