A hidden pet fence is a complete system that will safely contain your household pet(s) within your yard. It can be customized specific to how you choose to manage where your pet can (and can’t) go within your property. The system consists of a receiver collar
worn by your pet(s), an underground wire defining the yard boundary, and a transmitter that communicates between the two. Hidden fences are a great option for homeowners that must adhere to strict HOA rules that restrict traditional (above ground) fences. Additionally, they don’t obstruct the view of your property in any way, and are far more affordable than above-ground privacy fences.
How does an invisible pet fence work?
An invisible or hidden dog fence keeps your pet safe and allows them to play in the yard while maintaining the beauty of a home’s open landscape. The underground wire installed by DogWatch® is not electrified, but rather operates through a wireless-patented FM radio signal.
When your pet gets too close to the hidden boundary wire, the receiver collar on your pet interprets the radio signal from the wire and alerts them with a mild stimulation. Pets quickly learn where they’re allowed to safely explore within the property bounds, keeping them securely contained with no visible barrier.
How much does an Invisible Fence Cost?
The hidden pet fence market has really taken off in recent years, with a wide range of options to fit any budget. The most basic (and least expensive) hidden fence systems are wired fences that utilize a buried wire to create the containment area on any size property.
The cost to install a hidden pet fence includes the electronics (collar, transmitter, etc), the installation of the buried perimeter line-wire, plus the training necessary to assist your pet(s) with their orientation to the newly established yard boundary.
Because no two yards are identical, the price to install one of these systems can vary greatly according to property size and the surface challenges a yard may present (hills, walls, water crossings, etc.). Additionally, DogWatch® offers different price tiers
for the system electronics that are based on varying levels of functionality.
For a standard (sub-division) size yard with minimal challenges to work around, a DogWatch® middle-tier Hidden Fence system will start around $1,500 for a single pet. Additional pet-collars are extra.

Are there any additional costs to hidden pet fences?
A DogWatch® hidden fence system is essentially maintenance free if you never cut the perimeter boundary wire. If you ever do sever this line, the system transmitter will alarm – notifying you that the wire is damaged. A quick call to the DogWatch® office will dispatch a service technician to your home to repair your hidden fence for a modest service call fee.
One of the best advantages of choosing a DogWatch® hidden fence system is that the collar-receiver batteries
last up to 2 full years. Alternative products in the market require the receiver batteries be replaced every 3 months. A 2-Year battery life on the DogWatch® collar not only saves a lot of money over the full life cycle of the fence, but also the hassle of needing to frequently change them out. This advantage provides great peace of mind.
Additionally, DogWatch® offers a selection of Indoor Hidden Fence products. These are great for keeping your pet off certain household furniture items, or away from parts of the house they can get into trouble. These systems are fully integrated with the outdoor hidden fence system, using the same collar-receiver.
