How DogWatch is Installed in your Yard

A wire is buried to create the confinement area after an in-home consultation to identify the best containment setting for your pet. After that, an FM radio transmitter is placed in a strategic location (garage, basement, etc.) and connected to the underground cable to broadcast a specific FM radio signal. Unlike other concealed dog fence brands, DogWatch has both internal and exterior lightning protection, providing the highest level of safety for your house wiring system and fence. You may totally customise the perimeter wire to your desired style. Here are some examples of possible setups that highlight how adaptable our outdoor concealed fences are.

Basic Perimeter Loop

This illustrates the common/standard method for designing and laying out concealed fences. To provide your pet the most garden area possible, the wire is placed along the whole perimeter of the property. Furthermore, you may “exclude” whatever regions you like by installing any combination of optional Garden, Pool, or Flower Bed loops inside the disguised fence limit.

Hour Glass (Pinch)

By installing the fence wire up against the house on both sides of your property this configuration “pinches” your yard, creating two separate hidden fence zones; Front-Yard vs. Back-Yard. The advantage of this allows you to effectively manage your pet, controlling when he/she is “allowed” in the front yard (or back yard)…

Backyard Only

Limiting your pet’s access to just your backyard is another possible configuration. In order to complete the loop and keep your pet from escaping out the front door or garage, the concealed fence wire is positioned near to the front side of the home. In a similar vein, this arrangement may be reversed to restrict access to the Front-Yard only.


Banana Loop

With this installation option, you may border one, two, or three sides of your property with a concealed fence. This arrangement works best when there is existing traditional (above ground) fence in place to serve as a “partial” yard border. This design has the benefit of protecting the front yard while making the most of the space inside the closely fenced-in backyard.
