How an Electric Dog Fence Works: Everything You Need to Know

Protecting 250,000+ Dogs

Our underground dog fence is a completely invisible system that is designed to ease the stress of letting your dog outside. Suitable for all breeds and sizes, this solution seamlessly fits into any size yard, giving you and your dog the best of both worlds – freedom and safety!

Professional training and unmatched service from our local business

We will train your pet the day of installation. We use a multi-step process involving a tone, flags and verbal command prior to giving any correction. We feel this is the most fair for your dog. This gives them the opportunity to understand the new boundary first and minimizes the number of corrections your pet receives.

Dog Guard Pro training dog

Your dog will be trained and off leash when we leave. We guarantee containment!

Once the dog becomes familiar with the visible boundary, the flags can be removed. After your system is activated, when your pet enters the reminder zone (typically 3 feet from the wire) they receive an audio signal with a mild correction stimulus, warning that they are approaching the boundary. If they continue towards the perimeter, the signal becomes more intense, reminding them to stay in the yard.
Our trained pet behavior specialists will work with you and your pet throughout the initial process to make sure training techniques and boundaries are clearly defined.

“We are so glad we went with Dog Guard! Wonderful customer service. Our Golden Retriever would love to play with other dogs ALL the time, but this underground system is keeping him safe in our yard and 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!””

Happy dog sitting

“It's been a few months since I had my underground fence installed. Wow, best purchase ever. My dogs understood the boundaries within a week - such a life saver to not have to go chasing after them in the snow! I love watching them run freely around the yard without being chained up. I highly recommend!!!”
