Electric Pet Fences Keep Your Dogs Where You Want Them!
Electric pet fences are the easiest way to keep your dog or cat safe from running away without the hassle of a tangled leash or runner. Plastic or wooden fences can be very costly, as well as difficult to maintain and/or unsightly.
Our selection of electric pet fences fit large and small yards depending on the amount of wire used. There is even an indoor pet fence solution to keep pets out of unwanted areas of your home. Free yourself of worrying about a runaway or lost dog by ensuring they stay within the yard. Electric pet fences help control where your dog or cat is allowed to roam. Order additional collars to control the roaming of multiple dogs. There is no more going out in the cold or in the early morning to untangle the dog leash when you own an electric dog or cat fence.
The Innotek Contain 'n Train Dog Fence is a comprehensive inground electronic system complete with wire for zoning, collars and more.

Frequently Asked Questions About Our Electric Pet Fences:
How does an In-Ground Pet Fence work? All our electric pet fences have a transmitter which sends a radio signal through a boundary wire that you've buried around your property, or the area in which you would like your pet to stay. Your pet (or pets, with the purchase of additional collars) wears a receiver collar that can detect the radio signal in the wire. As a pet approaches the wire boundary, a tone will emit which warns him or her of the boundary. If your pet proceeds further into the "correction zone" they will receive a mild static correction that annoys them, and deters them from leaving your property.
Will the Electric Radio Fence "Shock" my pet? No, not in the way you might imagine. The days of painful shocks to innocent and defenseless dogs and cats are over (at least with the brands we sell here...) Almost all pet fences have toned down the "shock" that older pet fences might have given. All our fences give off a mild static correction, similar to shuffling across carpet and touching a metal doorknob.
Will Electric Fences hurt my pet? No. Electric pet fences are designed to be a training tool, not a punishment. The Static Correction emitted to the dog is very light, similar in power to shuffling across carpet and touching a metal doorknob. It acts as an annoyance to get your pet's attention, and inform him or her of wrongdoing. Combined with training, this has been found to be very effective.
Will In-Ground Automatic Pet Fences work for my pet? With training (and sometimes without) most pets learn the Radio Fence's boundaries. If you have a particularly stubborn pet there are specific models to help in training them. See the IN-Ground Fence Comparison Chart.
What is Static Correction, and how is it used by Electric Pet Fences? Static Correction, used by all PetSafe, Innotek, and SportDog brand fences, is a mild electrical pulse. It holds about as much electric 'shock' as shuffling across a carpet and then touching a metal doorknob. It's specifically created at this low level to be safe, humane, and effective. It acts as an annoyance, NOT a punishment, to get your pet's attention. When trained properly, most pets learn their boundaries after only a few static correction pulses.
Can I adjust the Static Correction level of my Electric Radio Fence? Yes, most fences have a range of correction levels. Use our In-Ground Electric Fence Comparison Chart to see each fence's specifications.
Is using a Radio Pet Fence hard to set up or maintain? No - fences come complete with everything you'll need as well as detailed instructions. Most of the individual fence's pages have digital copies of the manuals if you lose or misplace your copy. If you have trouble finding one, please contact us. Installing the fence, however, does take time. If you’re looking for an even-easier option, try the PetSafe Instant Dog Fence which works on the same principles as In-Ground Fences, but don’t require wire.
Can I expand the area of my Electric In-Ground Pet Fence? Most fences come with this capability. For the Wireless Pet Fence, you can simply purchase an extra transmitter. Extra wire and sod samples can be purchased separately for the majority of the inground, wired fences we offer here.
Can Electric Pet Fences work for more than one pet? Most can. In these cases, you can purchase additional collars for the other pets you'd like contained within the same area.
Will all my pets receive the Static Correction if only one pet proceeds past the correction zone? No, only the offending pet's collar will receive the static correction pulse.
How will my pet know the boundaries before setting off the fence? Many of our fences (all PetSafe and Innotek brands) include a "warning tone" area before reaching the actual "correction area" where they will feel the Static Correction pulse. In addition, most pets learn their boundaries very quickly after the In-Ground Fence is set up. Boundary flags are included in with the fence for a visual reminder to your pet of where they are allowed (and not allowed!) to be.
Will the Electric Pet Fence continue to send the Static Shock to a pet outside the boundary No. All collars are equipped with a fail-safe which will stop sending the static correction after a specified period.
