At DogWatch, we utilize exclusive safety and convenience features that make DogWatch the best in the pet containment industry. There are several significant differences:
DogWatch is the only hidden fence system that uses an FM radio frequency. Our patented SafeLink® FM Digital technology is exclusive to DogWatch. The FM signal provides the most reliable protection from unintentional stimulation. This can be caused by stray radio signals from such things as garage door openers, televisions, and intercoms. Other pet containment systems, such as Invisible Fence®, run on an AM radio frequency and are more susceptible to picking up stray signals which can cause your dog to receive a correction even when they’re not near the electric fence. That’s why all police and fire department radios are an FM frequency. The FM radio signal is more secure.
Most of our receivers have a two-year battery life — an average of eight times longer than the other brands, including the Invisible Fence® brand. When the battery runs out, guess who else runs out? Our long battery life helps keep your pet safe, costs a fraction of what you pay for other pet containment systems, and is good for the environment.
In addition to low battery replacement costs compared to Invisible Fence® and other brands, you also save with DogWatch because you can purchase batteries for the DogWatch system from any source and you do not need a service call from a Dealer to replace them as is required by most other brands. For your convenience, we have an optional battery replacement plan to ensue you always have a new battery when you need it.
Our R7 and R8 receiver collars have a status light that is easy to view and a great convenience feature for our customers. It tells you if the receiver is operating properly, indicates what training level you’re using, and when the battery power is low.
DogWatch includes a unique feature that allows you to correct your dog with an audible-only reminder when he approaches the electric fence. Invisible Fence® does not offer this pet-friendly™ feature.
DogWatch features the broadest pet training range in the industry. Whether your pet is very timid or highly energetic, we have a distinct training level that uniquely meets their needs.
YOU can adjust our patented, programmable receiver to the training level that works best for your pet's personality and size. No need for a service call or any other charges.

Our R7 and R8 receivers have our exclusive AutoMemory™ feature. The receiver constantly monitors and automatically adjusts the training level for your dog if he "challenges" his boundary.
Both receivers feature FastReact™ — the fastest response time in the industry. At .125 of a second, if your pet challenges the electric fence the receiver will react immediately — at the beginning of the avoidance zone — not when he’s half way through. This feature helps ensure your pet responds to the hidden fence while still INSIDE the containment area.
Our pet-friendly audible-only training level that allows you to train your dog using an audible "beep" tone before you introduce him to the correction setting. Once trained, most dogs respond to the audible warning tone and do not challenge the boundary. Some customers set the system to audible-only after the dog is trained.
Your transmitter constantly monitors your electronic dog fence and lets you know if you have a break in your underground wire.
