eXtreme Dog Fence® Pro-Grade 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.

The Benefits of Installing Your Own Electric Dog Fence

Other than the obvious benefit of keeping your dog safe at home where he belongs, there are many reasons why it makes sense to do it yourself.

  • Save Yourself Money: If you have to hire a professional installer, this will cost you hundreds or thousands more than doing it yourself, depending on the size of your property.
  • Do it Correctly: You know your property better than anyone. Instead of bringing a stranger to your house, you can do it right yourself.
  • Troubleshooting: Since you installed the system yourself, you don’t have to worry about trying to get ahold of an installer when you have a troubleshooting question. The eXtreme Team is here for you to call, 7 days a week.

Components That Are Designed to Keep Your Pets Safe

Contact Points: The eXtreme Dog Fence Kit is equipped with extra contacts to suit your dog’s size and coat length. If your dog has longer hair, using the longer contact points is recommended. The contact points must be in direct contact with the dog’s skin in order for the collar to work.

Digital Transmitter: Very powerful and compact, our digital transmitter is able to accommodate as many dogs as you need it to, with the purchase of additional collars. The transmitter needs to be located near an electrical outlet, but at least 4 feet away from any large metal object. Our surge protector is designed to work in conjunction with the transmitter.

Surge Protector:  Each kit comes with a surge protector, which is designed to guard your transmitter against possible lightning strikes or power surges. Your dog fence wire will run through this unit as well as the electricity for the fence transmitter. 

Collar Features

Active Collar Features

Digital Frequency Encoding: The digital frequency encoding is a helpful feature if you think a neighbor may have an electric dog fence. This tech feature eliminates stray signal interference from neighboring dog fence systems.

Small & Lightweight: One of the lightest and smallest collars in the industry, the eXtreme Active Collar only weighs 1.1 ounces. This makes it a great choice for dogs weighing as little as 8 pounds. If you dog is smaller than that, the PetSafe Elite Little Dog system would be a good choice. It has a weaker correction strength as well as a tiny collar.

Comfort Contacts: The eXtreme Dog Fence collar comes with a set of contact points that are covered in a conductive rubber, known as Comfort Contacts™. They still allow the correction to be delivered through them. The difference is that the rubber is softer and therefore more comfortable for the dog. This makes our system ideal for dogs with sensitive skin.

7 Individual Correction Settings: In addition to 7 levels of correction, the eXtreme Dog Fence collar has a beep only mode that is used for training. Levels 1-5 are a steady correction, where levels 6 and 7 are progressive. A progressive level means the correction starts out low and ramps up to a higher level. The correction levels are set on the transmitter itself, as opposed to being set on the collar. As mentioned, the correction level on each collar can be set independently. This makes the eXtreme system ideal for multi-dog households that weigh 8 pounds or more.

Battery Check: Our patented battery check feature makes sure that you only change the battery when it is truly depleted. This feature auto-activates every 2 hours to ensure you know as soon as your battery has become low.

Fully Waterproof: There are no dials or buttons on the collar itself. This allows the collar to be truly waterproofed. In fact, it can be fully submersed and still function properly. Due to this feature, it makes an excellent choice for properties that have lakes, ponds or pools, or places that have a rainy climate.

Disposable Proprietary Battery: The eXtreme Collar runs on a proprietary battery that is disposable. This may be considered a drawback for those who prefer a rechargeable collar. However, because it is not rechargeable, it is nice that you don’t have to remember to recharge it every day. You can expect each battery to require changing every 3-4 months. Your collar will begin blinking about 1 week before the battery in the collar has completely depleted.
