How a Dog Guard®, Out Of Sight Fencing® System Works


After your signal wire is buried in the ground to define the area(s) of containment, boundary Protection Diagramflags are placed within the perimeter of the permitted areas. During the early days of training, you walk your dog around the inside perimeter of your pet containment area, and verbal commands are used to train your pet to avoid the boundary flags. After your system is activated, when your pet enters the reminder zone approximately 3 to 6 feet from the signal wire, they receive your choice of an audio signal or a mild correction stimulus, warning that they are approaching the boundary. If they enter the correction zone, they receive a stronger correction.


Remember, Dog Guard®, Out Of Sight Fencing® is fully tested and safe for all pets. Your dealer will assure that the level of correction is set appropriately for your pet.
