Why choose DogWatch

Why Choose DogWatch?

The most important reason to choose an underground dog fence from DogWatch is because we care as much about your pet as you do. Our pet-friendly products and owner-friendly service are designed to give you freedom and flexibility while keeping your pet safe at home. If you want the best, be sure to ask for DogWatch by name.*

Top 5 Reasons to Choose DogWatch

1. Experience

We have been surrounding dogs with freedom since 1990. Our pet containment products have been tested on all types of dogs and dog personalities and our Dealers are experienced professionals who are committed to providing you with a quality product and quality service.

2. Technology

DogWatch Hidden Fence technology stands out from all the other dog fence brands. We are happy to have you compare DogWatch to Invisible Fence®, PetStop®, DogGuard® or any other brand. Most notably, DogWatch is the ONLY hidden fence company that uses an FM frequency; all other hidden dog fences operate on an AM signal. Our patented digital SafeLink® FM signal helps to protect your pet from unintentional corrections that can happen on the AM frequency (such as from garage door openers, televisions, baby monitors, etc.). FM is a safer, more secure signal, and you will only find it at DogWatch.

3. Safety

In addition to our patented FM signal, DogWatch includes other significant safety features not found in Invisible Fence® and other brands.  For example, features such as AutoMemory® and FastReact® are exclusive DogWatch safety features. The DogWatch system also uses a 'Distance-based' correction trigger rather than a 'Time-based' correction trigger. This provides a more reliable and consistent boundary for training your pet - - no surprises, no confusion. For more information about these and other safety features, give us a call or Contact Your Local Dealer to ask for a demonstration.

4. Customer Service

We are committed to providing customer service that matches the quality of our products. Referrals from happy customers are a big part of our business, so customer service and on-going support is one of our top priorities.  We encourage you to let us know how we are doing, and if you have questions or comments, please don't hesitate to contact us.  For your convenience, there is a 'Customer Feedback' form in the Customer Resources section of the website.

5. Cost

Bottom line, a hidden fence is more versatile and much less expensive than traditional fencing. The price for a hidden fence varies depending on the size of your yard and other factors, but – all other things being equal – DogWatch is a better value than other dealer-installed underground pet fences. With our two-year battery life, fewer service calls, full lightning protection, and a Lifetime Warranty included, the comparison always adds up in favor of DogWatch.

Our Environmental Commitment

In addition to caring about the quality of our products and our customer service, we also care about environmental responsibility.


DogWatch Hidden Fence Systems are lead-free and compliant with the Reduction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Initiative - a European-based initiative to reduce the amount of lead and other hazardous metals in consumer electronic products.

And DogWatch Receiver Collar batteries have the longest life in the pet containment industry. With our Performance Series battery you will only need five DogWatch batteries in ten years compared to thirty or forty for other brands. With DogWatch you will save money and the environment!
