How a Dog Guard® Out-of-Sight Fencing System Works

After your signal wire is buried so that it is invisible to the eye, boundary flags are setup within the fence barrier of the signal wire. During the early days of training, you walk your leashed dog around the inside perimeter of your pet containment area, and verbal commands are used to train your pet to avoid the boundary flags. After your system is activated, when your pet enters the reminder zone (in yellow) 3 to 6 feet from the signal wire, they receive your choice of an audio signal or a mild correction stimulus, warning that they are approaching the boundary. If they enter the red correction zone, they receive a stronger correction.  A Complete Dog Guard® Out of Sight Fencing DG9XT, DG5000 or DG Micro System usually includes:

  • 1 Dog Guard® Lightning Protection Unit – Automatically disconnects the transmitter in case of AC power surges and lightning.
  • 1 Dog Guard® 7K transmitter – Transmits the radio frequency to and throughout the buried signal/boundary wire. Also controls the depth of the correction zone, (the signal field or distance from the wire before a reminder or correction stimulus is used).
  • 1 DG9XT, DG5000 or DG Micro receiver with nylon collar – Worn by your pet and used to produce a tone or correction stimulus when they enter the reminder or correction zones (i.e., the signal field).
  • Signal/boundary wire – Carries the signal from the transmitter that defines the areas your pet can and cannot go, but does NOT carry any current of any kind*. It is buried so that it is invisible to the eye.
  • Matching chew protectors – Used to protect the receiver from damage by your pet.B
  • Boundary flags – Used during training to help your pet visually recognize where they can and cannot go.
  • Burial splices
  • Extra Probes – Probes are nickel plated brass (available in various sizes and shapes) used by your Dog Guard dealer to assemble and configure your receiver for optimum contact and efficiency.
  • Battery – To ensure their reliability and performance, Dog Guard batteries are specially welded together. Unlike our competitors’ multiple cell batteries which run the risk of breaking contact, DG batteries maintain 100% connection. Sign up for our optional Battery Plan, and help insure the safety of your pet while avoiding the chance of receiver problems stemming from battery failure!
  • 1 instructional  manual – covering system installation and pet training.

Electric Fence Installation and Pet Fence Training Tips

With the purchase of a new Dog Guard fencing system for your dog comes the requirement of an adjustment period. Understand that like any new change to your pet’s routine, your dog might need a little time to get used to the fence. Installation of the fence can help you instantly protect your pet and keep it from accessing areas outside of your home, but your dog can need a few days to fully understand that certain spaces are now off-limits. Typically, a smart pet will be able to determine that new boundaries exist within a week, even if the fence is wireless and out of sight.It’s normal for your pet to test the limits of an electric dog fence. Installation success doesn’t necessarily mean that your pet will accept the new boundaries as soon as you install a dog fence. Prevent problems before they arise by making a few smart choices after considering your pet’s personality and usual activity. Remember, preventing bad habits is much easier than attempting to correct them once your pet has adopted an unruly pattern of behavior.

Fear and Anxiety.  While electric fences are safe and effective, the change of having to move and play around one can present challenging circumstances for a dog used to having free rein over a domain. Sometimes, changes in dogs’ environments can lead to fear and anxiety as they attempt to assimilate to the new rules of their home and favorite spaces. Help your dog accept the fence as part of its environment: Discourage your dog from hiding inside of your home, make your yard enticing, and avoid the boundaries of the underground fence while playing together. Move food and water dishes outside, invite other animals to interact with your dog, and try to limit the number of times your pet is corrected by the fence’s signal.Some dogs can take longer than a week to become accustomed to an electric dog fence. Encourage your pet and lead by example: Demonstrate that the new fence is a normal part of life and your dog will quickly pick up on your cue. While it can be tempting to take a break, stay consistent with implementing the boundaries of your electric dog fence. Installation can only be successful if your dog has its receiver collar on at all times.

Escape Attempts.  Dogs that run past an electric fence can find themselves stuck outside of its perimeter with no way to get back into a yard without getting shocked. Before guiding your dog back home, turn off the fence’s transmitter or take off your pet’s collar. This will allow your dog to re-enter its environment without experiencing an unnecessary shock.Pets that move as if they are impervious to the shocking mechanism may need to have their owners carefully tighten their collars. If a collar has been fitted correctly and a dog still ignores boundaries, fur directly beneath and around the collar may need to be cut so that the receiver’s probes can reach the skin. Call your dealer if, after all of these techniques, your pet continues to run past your underground dog fence. Installation settings may need to be readjusted. Do not attempt to install a dog fence or change its settings yourself.Electric fence installation can be a great investment in your dog’s safety. The best fence, however, can’t work properly without proper placement of the pet’s receiver. Generally, a dog’s receiver should nestle snugly against its neck. Growing dogs need to have their collars regularly checked to ensure that they remain comfortable.

Safely Entering and Exiting the Perimeter.  Creating a safe way to exit and re-enter a perimeter is a necessary task for pet owners who buy an underground dog fence. Installation of an electric fence means that there will be permanent boundaries that need to be respected, even during routine tasks like dog-walking. Avoid confusing your pet by associating certain procedures with entering and exiting. Take your dog’s collar off to spare it from unnecessary shocks. Carry a small dog over the boundaries and put it down only after walking a safe distance from the hidden perimeter. Drive larger dogs over boundaries. Owners may even keep a specific spot near an entrance boundary-free or train pets to understand that an escorted exit from a perimeter is always a correction-free one.
