What is a Hidden Fence System?

Our Hidden Fence is a pet fencing system that uses an electronic FM radio signal to keep your dog IN a designated containment area, such as a yard; or OUT of an area, such as a swimming pool, patio, or garden. Our pet containment fences also work in the interior of your home to keep your pet off a couch
or away from a kitchen counter.


How does it work?

A hidden wire, buried underground, carries the harmless, low level FM radio signal around the containment area. Your dog wears a receiver on a collar that emits a mild stimulation, or correction, when he gets too close to the boundary. With an indoor dog containment fence, the hidden wire runs around your couch or other containment area and is Transparent to the eye. We also have "wireless" indoor units that do not require placement of a boundary wire! Ask The Dog Guy to show you the options.

How is our hidden fence different than Transparent fence

Our Hidden Fence brand is often confused with the Transparent Fence brand and may be mistakenly referred to generically as an "Transparent fence". We are not affiliated with the Transparent Fence company. At The Dog Guy Pet Containment, we utilize exclusive safety and convenience features that make The Dog Guy the best in the indoor pet containment industry. There are significant differences, for example:

Our product is the only hidden fence system that uses an FM radio frequency. Other pet containment systems such as Transparent Fence, utilize an AM radio frequency which is more susceptible to unsecure AM or DM signals which can cause false corrections to your pet even when they’re not near the underground fence. The digital FM signal used by
The Dog Guy is the most secure and safest for your pet.

Most of our receivers have a two-year battery life — an average of eight times longer than the other brands, including the Transparent Fence brand. When the battery runs out, guess who else runs out? Our long battery life helps keep your pet safe, costs a fraction of what you pay for other pet containment systems, and is good for the environment.

In addition to low battery replacement costs compared to Transparent Fence and other brands, you also save with
The Dog Guy because you can purchase batteries for our system from any source. For your convenience, we have an optional battery replacement plan to ensue you always have a new battery when you need it.

Our R7 Mini and R9 receiver collars have a status battery light that is easy to view and a great convenience feature for our customers. It tells you if the receiver is operating properly, indicates what training level you’re using, and when the battery power is low.

Our collars also include a unique feature that allows you to correct your dog with an audible-only reminder when he approaches the electric fence. Transparent Fence does not offer this pet-friendly feature.

Whether your pet is very timid or highly energetic, we have a distinct training level that uniquely meets their needs.
YOU can adjust our patented, programmable receiver to the training level that works best for your pet's personality and size. No need for a service call or any other charges.

What are the other benefits to the The Dog Guy Pet Containment Company?

Our R7 Mini and R9 receivers have our exclusive AutoMemory feature. The receiver constantly monitors and automatically adjusts the training level for your dog if he "challenges" his boundary.

Both receivers feature FastReact — the fastest response time in the industry. At .125 of a second, if your pet challenges the electric fence the receiver will react immediately — at the beginning of the avoidance zone — not when he’s half way through. This feature helps ensure your pet responds to the hidden dog fence while still INSIDE the containment area.

Our pet-friendly audible-only training level that allows you to train your dog using an audible "beep" tone before you introduce him to the correction setting. Once trained, most dogs respond to the audible warning tone and do not challange the boundary. Some customers set the system to audible-only after the dog is trained.

Your transmitter constantly monitors your electronic dog fence and lets you know if you have a break in your underground wire.

Will the stimulation from the collar hurt my dog?

No. This type of stimulation has been used in dog training for over 40 years. And the amount of correction can be adjusted so that a dog receives the appropriate level of stimulation for its size. Our products are used and recommended by veterinarians.


Will the system work for more than one dog?

Yes. There is no limit to the number of dogs (or cats) our hidden pet fencing can protect at one time.


Is the system safe during a lightning storm?

Our systems have both an internal lightning surge protector in the transmitter as well as an external surge protector.


What if my house loses electrical power?

If you experience frequent power loss, call the Dog Guy, he can add a power pack.  This auxiliary power supply provides hours of power to your electronic fence until your household electrical service can be restored.


How much does it cost?

Our systems can cost much less than traditional dog fencing and do far more. For example, you can contain your dog IN your yard, but keep him OUT of a pool area, garden or driveway gate. Contact the Dog Guy for an estimate on your individual property. Our systems are in small urban yards and 200 acre orchards.



What if I move?

Once you buy the system, you can expand it or take it with you when you move.


How big an area will the system cover? What kinds of areas will it cover?

Our systems can cover properties up to 200 acres. You can contain your dog in or out of most anywhere, including interior features of your home such as couches, dining rooms, and counter tops. Contact The Dog Guy Pet Containment Co. for a free consultation and estimate.


How does my dog learn to use it?

The Dog Guy will conduct initial training with you and your dog. The Dog Guy has developed an in-depth pet training program.


Does it keep other dogs out?

Our systems are designed to keep your dog at home and out of trouble. It will only keep other dogs out if they are wearing one of our receivers.


How old does my dog have to be before training


All dogs are different. Even within the same breed some dogs may mature earlier than others. When The Dog Guy Representative meets with you and your pet, he or she will evaluate your dog and make a recommendation as to when training should begin.


Will a Dog Guy system work with any dog?

Our systems work with all breeds, ages, and sizes of dogs. However, this type of product is not intended for use with dogs that have a history of aggressive behavior.


Is there a guarantee on the Dog Guy System?

There is a lifetime transferable equipment warranty on our outdoor systems installed by The Dog Guy.


What else do I need to know about The Dog Guy?

We offer the only pet containment fence that uses an FM signal to protect your pet from the random corrections that sometimes happen with other systems.
