How to Find, Fix and Prevent Wire Breaks in Your Hidden or “Invisible” Fence

They are often the result of outside forces like weather, landscaping and small burrowing animals. Here are some tips to help you identify a wire break, repair the wire and avoid any future disruptions.  Read post »

Top 6 Hidden Fence Myths Addressed

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.

Bella and Solo the German Shepherds, SideWalker customers

SideWalker Helps Dog Parent Walk Her Dogs Without Pulling

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.
