Battery Status Alerts
Sends an alert when it’s time to replace the SmartCollar™ battery. A notification will appear on the WebApp and will disappear when the battery is replaced.
Boundary Wire Alerts
Sends an alert if the boundary wire is disconnected or broken. A notification will appear on the Web App and will disappear when the boundary wire is repaired.
Power Loss Alerts
Sends an alert if the power goes out and the Transmitter starts running on PowerPak™ battery back-up. A notification will appear on the WebApp and will disappear when the Transmitter is reconnected to power.
Set which Alerts you want turned ON or OFF. You can also choose between email notifications, text message notifications or both.
Collar Connectivity Alerts
Sends an alert if your SmartCollar does not connect with the Communication Portal – for example, if your collar’s battery is dead, if your collar is damaged from a dog chew or if the collar is out of range of the Portal. A notification will appear on the Web App and will disappear when the SmartCollar™ reconnects to the Portal.
Transmitter Connectivity Alerts
Sends an alert if the Portal loses its connection with the Transmitter for more than one hour. This could be triggered by a loss of power, lightning or surge damage. A notification will appear on the Web App and will disappear when the Transmitter signal reconnects to the Portal.
Add Additional Contacts
You can add multiple contacts – such as family members, pet sitters or dog walkers – and choose which text message/email alerts you want them to receive.
Monitor your pet’s daily, weekly, and monthly activity levels. Find out if your dog has been Active, Moderately Active, Lightly Active, or Resting.
Monitor System Settings
Review your system settings anytime, anywhere. The SmartFence® WebApp displays your SmartCollar™’s training level and the Transmitter’s training mode, rate, frequency and range.
Multiple Pet Profiles
Add and track multiple pets within your SmartFence WebApp. Create individualized pet profiles for each pet.
Easy For You
We keep your pet safe and are safe for your pet with our exclusive SafeLink® FM technology and settings that can be individualized for all breeds, ages and pet personalities.
Longest Battery Life
All DogWatch Hidden Fence collars have a longer battery life than other brands. The R12 collar has a battery life of up to 2 years and our R12mini has a 6 month battery. Other brands usually need a new battery every to 3-4 months. Fewer batteries are good for your wallet and better for the environment. And, most importantly, safer for your pet!
Proven Training Program
All DogWatch Dealers provide on-site training using a safe and effective training program that includes visual recognition of boundary flags, learning to retreat from the audible (or vibration) warning signal and learning that there is an unpleasant sensation if they cross the boundary.
Lifetime Equipment Warranty
Our Hidden Fence products are built to last. We offer a no-nonsense Lifetime Equipment Warranty on all our Dealer installed hidden fences, including the 1200Fence. Batteries must be purchased through our website or collected in store, to prove the correct batteries have been fitted otherwise warranty will be void, we can not cover receiver collars containing batteries supplied from other unverified sources.
Flexible, Affordable Containment Areas
Over the river and through the woods? Backyard only . . . but not the pool and flower garden? Create a swimming area in the lake? It can be done. A hidden fence is more flexible and less expensive than a traditional fence. And your dog can’t jump over, dig under or chew through a hidden fence!
30-Day Money-Back Guarantee
We work hard to make sure DogWatch products are the best in the business. We back that up with a 30-day money-back guarantee on our equipment. We want to make sure your pet is safe and you are happy with your purchase!
Works for Cats (and more!)
All DogWatch products are effective for cats, too! Create an invisible boundary that keeps your cat in your yard and out of the kids’ sandbox. You can also create an indoor cat fence to keep kitty off the kitchen counter, away from your new sofa and out of the baby’s room.
Lifetime Containment Guarantee
For your peace of mind we offer a Lifetime containment Guarantee on our Pro installed systems (limited guarantee with driveways and single boundaries), should your pet start to break through the fence we will help you with troubleshooting and do what ever is necessary to safely contain your pet once more.
Our patented digital SafeLink® FM technology provides the maximum protection against false activation caused by stray radio signals. FM technology is less prone to interference than the AM systems used by other brands, and that makes DogWatch the most secure hidden fence available.
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.
Receiver Status Light
DogWatch receivers have a unique status light that provides valuable information to help keep your pet safely in your yard. It also lets you know if the receiver battery is low and if your pet has recently challenged the hidden fence.
Flexible Training Levels
The 1200Fence receiver collar includes 4 easy to understand and adjust training levels plus an ‘audible only’ feature to ensure safe and appropriate training and containment for your pet.
GentleFit™ Contact Posts
These unique contact posts are easy on your dog’s skin. They are smooth like our standard stainless steel contact posts to minimize friction and low profile for a comfortable Pet-Friendly fit. Purrfect for cats and dogs with short coats.
High Impact, Waterproof
The DogWatch receiver is tested to withstand the harsh outdoor elements of rain, sleet and snow . . . as well as rigorous play!
You can easily adjust the width of the signal (the ‘signal range’) on your 1200Fence to meet the needs of your pet and the size of your yard. If there is a wire break, there is also a warning alarm that alerts you to check the system. This is an invaluable safety feature for underground fences.
DogWatch Hidden Fences include the very best lightning/surge protection available as a standard feature. External protection directs power surges and lightning away from your home; internal protection suppresses surges coming in through your house wiring.
This patented safety feature automatically adjusts the receiver’s correction level if your pet challenges the boundary. This discourages additional boundary challenges. The receiver automatically resets to the original level after 24 hours without a boundary challenge.
If your pet challenges his boundary, the status light on the receiver double flashes, an indication that you may need to adjust the fence settings. The receiver resets after 24 hours without a boundary challenge. TattleTale™ is a patented safety feature from DogWatch.
Audible or Vibration Warning Alert
The DogWatch ProFence includes an audible warning signal to alert your dog that he is approaching the boundary. The R9 Receiver Collar is also available with a vibration alert, an option that works well for dogs who have a hearing impairment. With either type of warning signal, your pet quickly learns to stop before he reaches the hidden wire.
Our optional PowerPak keeps your fence working temporarily if you lose power. With a PowerPak, you have added protection to ensure your pet’s safety. Provides up to 8 hours of backup protection.
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 automatically reset once the dog leaves the signal field.
Our Loop Monitor alerts you if there is a break in the boundary wire. This is an invaluable safety feature for underground fences.
