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 unique features such as:

Safelink ®

Secure digital FM technology is the safest for your pet

Our patented digital FM technology provides the maximum protection against false activation caused by stray radio signals. Our FM SafeLink technology is less prone to interference and stray signals than the AM systems used by other brands, and that makes DogWatch the most secure and safest hidden fence available.

Flexible training levels

Individual user adjustable settings that fit your pet’s personality

The combination of settings on the DogWatch System 1200 transmitter and receiver offer up to seven 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 settings

You can easily adjust the range from 2 to 10 feet

This 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 a break in the boundary wire by an audible warning. This is an invaluable safety feature for underground fences and fences that are invisible to the eye.

Lightening 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 ground rod 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 ground.

DogWatch has the fastest reaction time in the industry. If your dog runs at the boundary, the receiver reacts with the warning signal before he reaches the wire, not while he is traveling over it.

Audible Warning

All DogWatch systems include an audible warning to alert the dog that he is approaching the boundary. Your pet will learn to stop at the audible warning before he reaches the hidden wire.

Longest battery life worldwide!!

No hidden costs when you purchase a DogWatch Hidden Fence. Our R12 & R9 DogWatch receiver boasts a two-year battery life … the longest in the industry! (The R7 & R12 micro receivers have an impressive a 6 month battery life but weigh only 30g which is the longest battery life for a receiver of this dimension & weight ,and we also offer an automatic battery renewal programme. Simply call us to purchase a new battery or pick up a battery online (You can also purchase an authorized battery from a local store).

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. 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!

Response hang on time?

What is response hang on time? – this is the time it takes the receiver to shut down after the pet has left the correction zone, i.e your pet has responded and left the zone and the correction should stop. With DogWatch our response hang on time on all our receiver collars is less than 0.1 seconds and from our competition 4 – 5 seconds! We leave our customers to decide why DogWatch has consistently been voted a Consumers best buy and is the preferred choice of many vets and animal behaviourists worldwide.
