eXtreme Dog Fence® MAX Grade Ultimate Performance System

How a Dog Fence Works

So you are thinking of getting an electric dog fence? An underground dog fence is an excellent choice for containing your dog. Let’s take a moment to talk about how an invisible dog fence works and why it is such a great solution for keeping your dog at home with you, where he or she belongs.

First, let’s establish that an underground fence, versus a wireless electric dog fence is a much better choice. Although wireless is effortless to install, there are many variables that can cause a wireless fence to fail. If you want the most dependable, customizable, best invisible dog fence available, read on to learn about how our American-manufactured eXtreme Dog Fence® works.

Components of an Inground Dog Fence

There are 3 crucial components of a pet containment system. These include dog fence wire, a dog fence transmitter, and a special receiver collar that your dog wears. The transmitter, located inside of your home, is the brains of the operation. It transmits a radio signal throughout your dog fence wire. Along with our manual our extreme videos help you learn how to program your transmitter with ease.

Your dog fence wire, which is buried around your property, creates a border that you have designed yourself. Although your border is customizable, you must always establish a complete loop back to your transmitter in order for the fence to work.

Your dog wears an invisible fence collar, which triggers when he approaches a predetermined distance in front of your dog fence wire. Your dog’s receiver collar is powered by Perimeter 6-volt Extreme invisible fence batteries.

Dog Fence Correction

The concept of static correction is the same as is used in dog behavior training. Here is what it feels like to your dog. Run across the carpet in your socks and then touch a doorknob. That is a static shock, which is similar to what the dog feels when he receives a static correction. With the eXtreme Dog Fence® there are 7 different levels of correction to choose from, in addition to a beep-only mode used for training.

A Word About Dog Fence Wire

There are many different gauges of wire available for your pet fence. You will find 20 gauge wire, 18 gauge, 16 gauge wire, and 14 gauge. With so many options, how does one know which wire to choose? Here is some advice from the experts.

Though 20 and 18 gauge wire is inexpensive, it is not an ideal choice. This is because it is thin and very vulnerable to breakage or wearing down over time. A cheap dog fence comes with this type of thin dog fence wire. Logically, you may be focused on finding a fence for sale at a low price point, but keep in mind that you get what you pay for.

16 gauge wire is a step in the right direction, but still not the best selection.

The best electric dog fence comes with 14 gauge dog fence wire. If you want your dog fence wire to last a long time, 14 gauge wire is the way to go, without a doubt. Our 14 gauge wire is designed to last a lifetime. It will not degrade, or break unless a blade is taken to it. In addition to this, the performance of your electric dog fence will be enhanced by its superior signal conductivity.

In fact, our 14 gauge dog fence wire is so durable that you don’t even need to bury it if you don’t want to. You can simply use fence staples to tack it to the top of the ground.

Benefits of Installing Your Own Electric Pet Fence

Besides the obvious benefit of keeping your dog safe, there are lots of practical reasons to buy a DIY electric pet fence installation kit.

  • Save Money: Hiring a professional installer can cost hundreds or thousands depending on the size of your property. By installing it yourself, you retain that extra money for your other “pet” projects.
  • Do it Right: You know your property best. Instead of attempting to have a stranger come to you to do an installation, you can do it right the first time.
  • Know How to Troubleshoot: Who best than the installer to call when there’s an issue? You are well-acquainted with where and how the pet containment system was installed. This means that you are armed with the knowledge and skill you need to deal with any troubleshooting that may occur years down the road.

Parts Designed to Keep Your Pet’s Safe

Contacts: The eXtreme Dog Fence Kit comes with extra contacts and training caps to suit your dog’s size and breed. Long-haired dogs benefit from our longer contacts. The contacts must be near the skin for the correction to be felt.

Digital Transmitter: Super compact and powerful, our digital transmitter can accommodate any number of dog collars. Transmitter should be located near an electrical outlet but at least 3 feet away from large metal objects. This works well with our surge protector.

Surge Protector: Every kit comes with 1 power surge and lightning protector. The Extreme Dog Fence Lightning/Surge Protector is designed to provide protection for electric dog fence systems. Your fence wire will run through this unit as well as the electricity for the fence transmitter.

Collar Features

Digital Frequency Encoding: The digital frequency encoding is a handy feature if you think a neighbor may also have an electric dog fence. This tech feature eliminates stray signal interference from neighboring dog fence systems and other signal generating devices. Nearby dog fence systems and other devices that generate similar signals can interfere with your electric dog fence causing signal interruption or unreliability.

Small and Lightweight: The Perimeter receiver collar is one of the lightest and smallest collars in the industry (surpassed only by the small dog specific PetSafe Elite Little Dog). Weighing in at only 1.1 ounces it is suitable for dogs right down to 8 lbs. For dogs smaller than that you’ll want to go for the PetSafe Elite Little Dog, which tones down the correction strength in addition to the small collar size.

Comfort Contacts: The Perimeter Ultra receiver collar uses unique conductive rubber contact points to increase collar comfort for your dog. While the comfort contact points conduct the correction just like metal contact points, they are softer and less irritating on your dog’s skin. The comfort contact points make this system the number one choice for dog’s with sensitive skin.

4 1 Individual Correction Settings: The small Perimeter Ultra collars are capable of 4 unique correction level settings and 1 progressive setting that automatically increases as the dog continues towards the boundary line. Each collar on the system has its own correction level but rather than being set on the collar itself, they are set at the transmitter. The unique correction level settings and lightweight collar make this a good choice for multi-dog households where all dogs are 8 lbs.

Battery Check: The patented Battery Check feature ensures you only change the battery when it is truly depleted. The Battery Check feature auto-activates every two hours to ensure you know as soon as your battery is low. Since battery output fluctuates depending on the environment and other factors the Perimeter collar requires 3 consecutive low battery triggers to set off the low battery indication.

Exceptional Waterproofing: Because the Perimeter collar does not have any buttons or dials on the collar itself, the waterproofing is really perfect. The collar can be fully submersed while functioning. Because of this feature we recommend the Perimeter Ultra dog fence for rainy climates as well as lake front installation or yards with ponds or pools.

Disposable Proprietary Battery: This collar uses a disposable proprietary battery. Most people prefer a rechargeable battery, a generic battery is second best because it’s easy to get your hands on. The proprietary battery is generally our least favorite but does have it’s virtues in this case. The Perimeter proprietary battery has a pretty impressive 4-6 month lifespan. Its superior tech features include a sophisticated battery indicator that detects a true low battery so you only change it when it is depleted. For some people a battery change every 4-6 months is preferable over remembering to recharge daily.
