DogWatch® Receiver-Collar Features

Small package. Outstanding performance.

The lightweight waterproof radio receiver-collar worn by the dog identifies the coded FM radio signal transmitted through the hidden boundary wire. The same collar works on both indoor and outdoor systems.
There are several receiver models available depending on the system that is right for you and your dog. The receiver can be attached to a variety of different strap colors and styles.

TWO YEAR Collar Battery Life

The DogWatch® model R9 receiver-collar has a 2 year battery life which is up to 8 times longer than others in the industry. When you add up and compare the money spent on collar-batteries over the full lifecycle of a hidden fence, DogWatch® has the lowest Total-Cost-of-Ownership in the business. Changing collar-batteries less often means you are less likely to forget, making DogWatch® the safest choice for your pet as well as the least expensive.
Battery Comparison


This Exclusive-Patented safety feature automatically increases the receiver-collar correction level if your pet challenges the boundary. If he doesn’t enter the fence zone again over the next 24 hours the collar automatically sets it back down to the original setting. The advantage of this feature is automatic correction level adjustment for those times when your pet could use some added “incentive” to remain in the yard, yet a higher correction setting is not needed all of the time.


This safety feature let’s you know if your pet challenges his boundary. If your pet activates the audible alert or receives a correction, the status light on the receiver collar will double flash instead of the usual single flash. If this happens frequently, you may may need to adjust the boundary or receiver settings. The receiver will reset to the single flash after 24 hours without a boundary challenge.   Get a FREE Quote


DogWatch FastReact® receiver-collars use a ‘Distance-based’ correction trigger rather than a ‘Time-based’ mechanism. This provides a more reliable and consistent boundary for training your pet – no surprises, no confusion. The advantage of this feature is if your pet runs toward the hidden fence at top speed the DogWatch® receiver-collar will trigger before he reaches the boundary wire, not after he has already moved beyond the other side of the fence zone and out of your yard.

Warning Alert (Audible or Vibration)

All DogWatch® systems include a warning signal to alert the dog that he is approaching the boundary. Your pet will learn to stop at the warning signal before he reaches the hidden wire. With a DogWatch system, you have your choice of either an audible alert or a vibration alert. The vibration warning is perfect for hearing impaired and deaf dogs.

Receiver Status Light

Only DogWatch® offers a status light to confirm that your pet’s receiver is functioning properly. It also lets you know when the receiver battery is low and if your pet has recently challenged the hidden fence. This important feature provides valuable information to help ensure your pet stays safely in your yard.

Automatic Shutdown

The DogWatch® system is designed to protect your pet from an over-correction in the unlikely event that your dog stands in the signal field and does not quickly exit. The receiver will also automatically reset once the dog leaves the signal field.

High Impact, Waterproof

The DogWatch® receiver is tested to withstand the harsh outdoor elements of rain, sleet and snow . . . as well as rigorous play!
