Hidden fencing (a.k.a. electric dog fencing, invisible fencing, or underground fencing) has been in existence for a long time but has recently become more popular due to the ever increasing fence restrictions and our ability to trust more in technological advancements. There are some people, however, that are still leery due mostly to myths associated with this type of pet containment. We would like to address these myths and help educate the general public about the safety, humanity and convenience of hidden fences.
The six most popular myths associated with hidden fences are 1) the shock is dangerous and inhumane; 2) it doesn’t work on my breed; 3) my dog will never want to come outside again; 4) it will make my dog become aggressive; 5) it is too expensive and 6) store-bought systems work just as well as professionally-installed hidden fences.

Walking German Shepherds (and many other dogs) on leash can be a challenge for the average dog owner. That’s why DogWatch created the SideWalker® Leash Trainer, a training collar that gently corrects overly enthusiastic leash pulling and helps dogs (of all shapes and sizes) learn appropriate on-leash behavior.
To see how the SideWalker helped one German Shepherd pet parent gain control of walks with her dogs, we reached out to Lorna, a DogWatch customer from Van Hornesville, New York. Lorna is pet parent to two beautiful German Shepherds, a four year-old female named Bella (left) and a two year-old male named Solo (right). Both dogs were avid leash pullers, especially Solo.

Lucy the Labradoodle lives on the shores of beautiful Joslin Lake in Unadilla, Michigan, and she loves to swim. Lucy’s parents, David and Kathy Downey, enjoy watching their young dog leap into the water, but they worried that she may swim too far away from their home. They needed a solution that would allow Lucy the freedom to enjoy the water while also giving them the peace of mind that she will stay close to home.

A Seattle pig named Amy made headlines recently after becoming the star pupil of a dog obedience class, perfecting her “sit” and “heel” commands alongside a Poodle, a Chihuahua, a Corgi and the rest of her canine classmates. According to her owner Lori Stock, the six month-old miniature pig “only has to be instructed a couple of times before learning something new…There’s nothing I can’t teach her.”

Here at DogWatch, we know that no two pets are exactly alike. That’s why our DogWatch receiver collar settings can be individually adjusted to suit the breed, size, age and temperament of each dog and/or cat on the system. But what if your dog is hearing impaired, and can’t hear the audible warning signal? Or what if your pet has sensitive skin or a short coat, and needs a lower profile contact post? DogWatch has solutions!
