What is Dog Guard?
Dog Guard is an electronic fence system that is installed underground by burying a single wire as a complete loop along the entire perimeter of your property. This underground boundary can also include certain portions of your yard, such as a pool or garden. Your dog is safely contained within your yard, able to run and play, while not being allowed to trample your gardens or swim in your pool.

How does it work?

First, a transmitter is installed in a convenient location, such as the garage or basement. Then, the wire loop is placed underground. The transmitter sends a harmless radio signal through the wire, which is picked up by the small receiver on the dog's collar. When the dog nears the wire, the receiver picks up the signal and gives off an audible warning, while at the same time giving the dog a mild correction.

Isn't it cruel to correct my dog all the time?
The correction has been thoroughly tested and proven to be harmless. It is a mild static pulsation, similar to a shock from a doorknob, yet unpleasant enough that the dog will quickly learn to avoid it. The whole purpose of a good pet containment system is to contain your pet without correcting him all the time. The Dog Guard system along with the training your pet receives ensures that your pet learns the boundary and stays away from it. Most pets will never sustain more than two or three corrections. Remember, the level of correction must be greater than the level of distraction. We have our dogs on the Dog Guard system and they are like a part of our family.

How does the training system work?
The boundary is marked off with flags, creating a visible boundary line for the pet. For two weeks, the dog owner should spend fifteen minutes, twice daily, exercising the dog around the flag boundary. If the dog moves toward the flags, he should be told "NO!" The dog should then be moved away from the flags and given lots of praise. By using this technique, the dog will quickly learn where the boundary is located. Later, once the dog becomes familiar with the boundary, the flags can be removed. Remember, praise and repetition are the keys to success!

Can a dog on the Dog Guard system be taken out of the yard for a walk?
Absolutely! Once the dog is trained to the system, he can be taken outside of the yard. The Dog Guard receiver collar must be taken off before putting the leash on. We, your Dog Guard Dealer, can provide you with specifics instructions (the do’s and dont's) for taking your dog off the property.

How do I know that the system is functioning properly?
Our transmitter has three colored indicator lights. The red and green light should be on all the time, while the yellow light will only come on in the event of an electrical surge or lightning damage. If you ever have any questions, do not hesitate to call us!

Are your batteries rechargeable?
They are not. Rechargeable batteries, while a good idea, do not suit the purpose of a good pet containment system. To be most effective, rechargeable batteries need to be totally drained before recharging. What do you do while the battery is recharging? How do you know when the battery is sufficiently drained? To save our customers from worrying about these questions, we offer a battery plan. To obtain pricing, contact us by phone or email.
