For many pet owners, keeping an energetic, inquisitive, and fun-loving animal in the yard is a constant challenge. A hidden fence is a simple and effective solution.

DogWatch of Massachusetts can install an underground boundary wire to keep your pet on your property and out of harm’s way. If your pet gets too close to the boundary line, it will receive a correction from its collar. Here are five other important things you should know about our hidden fences.

You Can Design a Customized Area for Your Pet to Play

A hidden fence can enclose your entire yard, but it doesn’t have to. Many of our customers want to give their pet a large area to play but keep certain areas, such as the pool, patio, or garden, off limits.

With a DogWatch hidden fence, you’ll get to decide where to allow your pet to go. A boundary wire can be installed in a wide range of environments to create a customized containment zone.

Hidden Fences Aren’t Just Used for Dogs

People usually associate hidden fences with dogs, but they can be used to keep other types of animals, such as cats, pigs, sheep, and goats, in a specific area. We can provide collars in appropriate sizes, as well as training customized for each species’ learning style.

You Can Monitor Your Pet’s Activity Levels

One of the advantages of using a hidden fence is that you don’t have to keep an eye on your pet whenever it’s outside. If you’re in the house while your pet is in the yard, you might not know if it’s running around and playing or taking a nap.

With a DogWatch hidden fence, you’ll be able to keep track of your pet’s activity levels. You’ll have access to daily, weekly, and monthly data that you can review to spot trends.

You Can Receive an Alert If There’s a Problem

Remembering to change the battery in your pet’s collar can be a hassle. With a DogWatch hidden fence, you won’t have to worry about that. You’ll receive a notification on the WebApp when the battery needs to be replaced.

Under some circumstances, the boundary wire can get broken or disconnected. If that happens, you’ll receive a notification via the WebApp.

A Hidden Fence Can Work Even If You Lose Power

If a storm strikes your area and knocks out the electricity, you won’t have to worry about your pet escaping from the yard. Your hidden fence will be able to keep operating off a PowerPak™ battery backup.
