Our eXtreme Dog Fence® Standard Active Electric Dog Fence Kit is an entry-level system in regards to the thickness of the wire. However, the transmitter has high-tech features such as Temp & Wire Check and multiple frequency selection to avoid interference for neighboring dog fences. Its compact, lightweight collar is suitable for all dogs, except for the tiniest ones.
This Standard Kit has the same transmitter and collar as the Ultra Kit. However, the Standard Kit comes with 20 gauge wire, and does not include a surge protector or twisted wire. So, if you are looking for a kit that comes with the best wire, you can select our eXtreme Dog Fence® Pro-Grade Dog Fence Kit for a great deal on this best-selling brand.
Compatible Receiver Collars
The collar that is included with this eXtreme Dog Fence® Active in-ground fence system is powered by this battery:
Digital Frequency Encoding:
This feature is helpful if your neighbor has an electric dog fence. Neighboring dog fence systems as well as devices that generate similar signals may interfere with your electric dog fence, causing your signal to become interrupted or unreliable.
Small & Lightweight:
One of the lightest and smallest receiver collars in the industry, the eXtreme Dog Fence® Active receiver collar weighs only 1.1 ounces. It is suitable for dogs as small as 8 pounds.
Designed to make the collar more comfortable for your dog, our Comfort Contacts are conductive rubber tips that fit onto the contact points of the eXtreme Dog Fence® Active receiver collar. They conduct the correction, just like the metal contact points. However, they are a softer touch on your dog’s skin, which means less irritation. For this reason, these comfort contacts make this system the #1 choice for dogs that have sensitive skin.
8 Individual Correction Settings:
The eXtreme Dog Fence® Active collar has many different settings for you to choose from. Level 0 is a tone-only mode, which is used for training your dog. Levels 1 through 5 are low to high levels of steady, static correction. Lastly, levels 6 and 7 are a progressive correction, where the level of correction automatically increases as the dog moves toward the boundary line. You are able to set each individual collar to the setting that is right for each particular dog. This is done on the transmitter itself, as opposed to on the collar. These unique correction level settings and lightweight collar make this a great choice for multi-dog households, where each of the dogs are 8 pounds and up.
Its patented Battery Check feature makes sure you only change the battery when it is truly drained. This feature activated every 2 hours to make sure you know right away when your battery is low. Because battery output fluctuates, depending on the environment and other factors, our eXtreme Dog Fence® collar requires 3 consecutive low battery triggers before the low battery light will illuminate.
As there are no buttons or dials on the collar, this means the collar is 100% waterproof. In fact, the receiver collar can still function when it is fully submersed. This means that the eXtreme Dog Fence® collar is perfect for rainy climates and houses with swimming pools, ponds or lakes.
Disposable Proprietary Battery:
Our collar runs on a disposable, proprietary battery. We realize most people prefer a rechargeable battery, or a generic battery that is easy to buy in your local store. With that being said, the Perimeter 6 volt battery that goes in this collar does have a pretty impressive life span, between 2-4 months. As mentioned, your collar will let you know when your battery is truly depleted. Some people would prefer changing a battery every few months as opposed to remembering to charge it every day.
The multiple frequency selection is one of the standout features of the eXtreme Dog Fence® transmitter. This feature ensures that your dog fence will work without interruption, even if your neighbor has an electric dog fence as well.
Adjustable Boundary Zone:
You are able to adjust the boundary zone width on the transmitter. This means that you are able to control how close your dog gets to the wire before receiving a correction. The boundary zone width adjustment of the eXtreme Dog Fence® is completely digital, so you are able to make precise adjustments.
Temp Check & Wire Check:
The Temp Check feature on the eXtreme Dog Fence® means that the system automatically senses and adjusts for temperature and electrical changes that could affect the performance of your dog fence boundary wire. In extreme climates, this becomes really important. Its Wire Check feature means that the transmitter will audibly alert you if there is a break or inconsistency in your dog fence wire.
25 Acre Capacity:
Our eXtreme Dog Fence® is capable of containing a property of 25 acres or less. This is enough for most situations, either in the country or the city.
Lacks Battery Backup:
It should be noted that should the power go out, your dogs will be unprotected. This is because the system does not have a battery backup, in case of a power failure. Although the transmitter is very reliable, should the power go out, your fence will not be operational.
