DogWatch® Transmitter Features

Unique features and benefits not available in other brands.

The transmitter controls the coded FM radio signal in the buried wire. In addition to being the only FM transmitter available for hidden fences, the DogWatch transmitter is user-friendly and user-adjustable. You won’t find anything quite like it in other brands. The DogWatch transmitter includes several unique features…
Secure digital FM technology is the safest for your pet
SafeLinkOur Exclusive-Patented digital FM technology provides the maximum protection against false receiver-collar activations caused by stray radio signals. DogWatch® is the ONLY pet fence system that offers FM technology – making ours the most secure hidden fence system available. The advantage of this technology is peace of mind that your pet will not be shocked by accident. It’s common with ALL other AM-Radio brands of hidden fencing for household items such as television remotes, garage door openers, etc. to arbitrarily set off the receiver-collar, causing a great deal of discomfort and anxiety for your pet. With DogWatch®, thanks to our digital FM design, you never have to worry about this happening. Your pet will always be comfortable in your home, as well as safe in the yard. The source of this advantage comes from the differences between FM and AM radio signals. Read more…

Flexible Training Levels

Individual user adjustable settings that fit your pet’s personality
The combination of settings on the DogWatch transmitter and receiver offer up to twenty different correction levels to ensure safe and appropriate training for your pet. You can also set your system to “audible only” to introduce your dog gently to the training and his boundaries.

Range Setting and Loop Monitor

Settings are displayed on the transmitter so you understand your system
This dual function display allows you to set the signal field width to best meet the needs of your pet(s): a broad outdoor dog fence field for a larger animal or a smaller range cat fence for your favorite feline. It also alerts you to any change in the strength of the boundary signal, or to a break in the boundary wire. This is an invaluable safety feature for underground fences and fences that are invisible to the eye.

Lightning Protection

The best lightning protection available – and it is a standard feature
Feel confident that your DogWatch pet fence is protected should your home experience an electrical surge due to lightning. That’s why we’ve gone to extremes, like no one else, to equip your DogWatch Hidden Fence with both internal and external surge protection. External Surge Protection directs power surges and lightning from the boundary wire to the grounding rods, into the earth and away from your home. Internal Surge Protection suppresses surges coming in through your house wiring and diverts them to your house electrical ground.


Extra security to keep your fence on when the power is out
Our optional PowerPak keeps your pet fence system working temporarily should you lose electric power. After training, most dogs will stay within the hidden boundary even when the system is not on, but with a PowerPak you have added protection to ensure your pets safety when the power goes out. The PowerPak provides up to 8 hours of back-up protection.
