eXtreme Dog Fence Transmitter

Digital Transmitter

Dimensions: 4.5″ high x 5.5″ wide x 1″ deep

The fence transmitter is the brain of your eXtreme Dog Fence. You not only set your signal field width here (which is the distance from the wire that the collar will activate), but you also program your collar’s correction level here.

You can also change AM radio frequencies here, if you have a neighboring fence system that is causing interference with your fence.

The transmitter should be mounted indoors, so as to avoid any moisture getting into the electronics, and at least 3′ away from any large metal objects.

Waterproof “Active” Collar

The “Active” collar is waterproof and submersible to 10 feet, with no impact on the receiver’s performance.

It includes a long set of contact probes for dogs with long neck hair, and a short set for dogs with shorter hair. A set of metal infused rubber comfort covers are included to help keep the contact probes comfortable on your dog’s neck.

The receiver weighs a mere 1.1 ounce and runs on a proprietary 6v battery, which lasts an average of 4 months (after the battery used during the training period).

The collar receiver has 7 correction levels (1-7) and a beep only level (0), to accommodate a wide range of dog sizes, breeds, personalities and temperaments.

Waterproof Active receiver
eXtreme 16 gauge wire

Heavy Duty Boundary Wire

Specs: 16 gauge with polyethylene jacket (UV resistant, direct ground burial rated)

This heavy duty gauge boundary wire is so durable that it allows for many installation options you won’t find possible with a thin 20 gauge wire. This wire will perform for over 20 years, even in eXtreme elements.

16 gauge Twisted Wire - 50 ft spool

16 AWG Twisted Wire

Specs: 16 gauge with .045 polyethylene jacket (UV resistant, direct ground burial rated)

This wire is used to connect the boundary loop to the transmitter or you can use it to connect one loop to another. Twisted wire offers a length of dog fence that is neutralized so the dog can freely pass over it.

Sample Layouts

Boundary wire

Back and Front

The most common layout, providing unrestricted access to the front and backyard for the dog’s enjoyment.

Double Loop

Double Loop

Choose this layout if you need to contain your backyard only. Parallel wires must be separated by at least 4 feet.

Existing Fence

Existing Fence

A variation on the double loop method, where the wire runs parallel on the fence, separated by at least 4 feet.

Pinch Layout


An alternative to the double loop method, running closely against the front of the house for efficiency.

The Hourglass Layout


Allows your dog access to the front and backyard while preventing movement between the two areas.

One-sided Boundary Layout

Single Side

Can be used to keep the dog out of the road. Parallel wires must be separated by 4 feet.

Wire Placement


Temp Check

Temp Check™

Keeps the fence field stable and in the same location when outside temperatures change. Boundaries that randomly and unexpectedly move are frustrating and dangerous for your pet.

Frequency Encoding

Frequency Encoding

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.

Wire Check

Wire Check™

Automatically compensates for wire problems and adjusts the amount of signal power to ensure the fence boundary remains in a constant location.

Battery Check

12x Battery Check™

Monitors the status of the training collar battery every two hours, eliminating false low battery indications saving you both time and money.

Questions & Answers

Question: I have 1 acre of land. How much wire do I need?

Answer: You would need to order 1,000 feet of wire with your kit, since the wire comes in 500 ft. increments. Regarding a more specific number you will end up using, you would need to take into consideration the shape of the boundary. For example, if the boundary is shaped in a square, you would need approximately 836 feet total.

Question: What batteries does the collar use?

Answer: The active collar (red strap and blue receiver) runs on Perimeter 6-volt batteries. Our stubborn dog collar (solid blue) runs on 7.5 volt collar batteries.

Question: Does it alert you if your dog gets out?

Answer: No, there is no alarm or notification at the transmitter if the dog gets out of the boundary.

Question: Can additional collars be added in the future for other dogs?

Answer: Absolutely! An unlimited number of dogs can be contained on this system.

Question: Do I need to be an electrician to install this fence?

Answer: No you don’t need to be an electrician. Hooking up your dog fence is quite simple, and doesn’t require any special skills to complete. All you need to be able to do is hook up 2 wires to 2 screws on the transmitter.

Question: Will the entire dog fence work if there is a break anywhere in the wire?

Answer: No it won’t. If there is even the smallest break in your dog fence wire, your entire fence is compromised, and an alarm will sound at the transmitter. This alarm means that if your dog is out in your yard, he is not protected and can get out of the fence. This is why choosing the right dog fence wire in the first place is so important.

Question: Can I run the wire above the ground, along a fence for example?

Answer: Yes, you absolutely can. However, it is highly recommended if doing this that you go with a Pro Grade or Max Grade kit that comes with a thick and sturdy cable to protect it from a potential wire break.

Question: Will a yard that has a lot of trees disrupt the dog fence signal?

Answer: Absolutely not. No amount of trees will interfere with the signal coming off of our eXtreme Dog Fence Wire.

Question: How many collars come with the kit and can I order extras?

Answer: One collar comes with your kit. You can add as many collars as you need by using the dropdown menu to do so.

Question: Do you have a remote trainer that works with your dog fence?

Answer: Yes, we sell a remote trainer, but it doesn’t use the same collar as your dog fence does. However, what you can do is remove the receiver from the remote trainer collar and slide it onto your dog fence collar, so that both receivers are on the one collar.

Question: Is there a vibration feature as well as a tone and a shock?

Answer: No, there is no vibrate feature on the eXtreme Dog Fence.

Question: Can I just wait until the spring to bury the wire? Will the wire be okay if there is snow on top of it?

Answer: Our Prograde and Max grade wire definitely sturdy enough to weather the elements. You can certainly wait until the spring to bury your dog fence wire.

Question: Does the transmitter need to be mounted in a temperature-controlled environment?

Answer: No it doesn’t. High or low temperatures are not an issue; however your dog fence transmitter can absolutely NOT get wet.

Question: How old does my dog need to be to use the eXtreme Dog Fence?

Answer: As young as 6 months old is fine. The important thing is that the dog needs to be able to understand basic commands.

Question: Can the transmitter be plugged into an outdoor porch?

Answer: Yes it can. However since it must be protected from moisture, it should be kept in a waterproof box, such as a sprinkler box.

Question: What is the twisted wire used for?

Answer: Twisted wire is used to connect the boundary loop to the transmitter. When used in this way, twisted wire is neutral and won’t correct your dog for crossing over it. However, twisted wire can never be used as part of your boundary loop itself.

Question: Does the dog fence wire need to be ran in one continuous loop? Can it just be ran on one side of the property?

Answer: Yes, as with any dog fence, your dog fence wire must be ran in one continuous loop. Yes it can be ran just on one side of the property, but a double loop must be created there, with 4 feet separating its parallel sides.

Question: Will the collars still shock with the rubber contact points covering the tips?

Answer: Yes, they will. The rubber contact points are metal-infused, so they are still able to deliver the static correction through them.

Question: How deep should I bury the dog fence wire?

Answer: 3-6 inches is recommended.

Question: In a double loop installation, can I put both loops together in the same trench?

Answer: No you can’t. The parallel wires must be separated by 4 feet, which means they must be buried in 2 separate trenches.

9 reviews for eXtreme Dog Fence® Pro Grade system – Active / 500 ft / 1 Dog

  1. Jesse S (verified owner)

    I purchased the eXtreme Dog Fence Pro Grade system because I wanted the quality of the higher end professionally installed systems without the high price tag. The 14 gauge wire is very durable, such that I didn’t even have to bury it in the wooded areas of my yard. The system was fairly easy to install and works well, but does require a lot of manual labor so be prepared for a long weekend. My only critique of the system is that the beep and shock happen simultaneously as opposed to other systems that have a “warning zone” where your dog will experience only the beep and then be shocked if they continue to approach the boundary wire. That being said, it doesn’t make a huge difference as my dog respects the boundary after only a week or so of training, just something to be aware of. Overall, I’m very happy with my purchase and the quality of the system. I would definitely recommend this system over the professionally installed systems that can cost you thousands of dollars.

      Hello Jesse,

  2. Anthony Steventon

    A good product in stopping a dog from getting out of my property, it really does what what you say it will do, and your customer service is excellent. However, I cannot give it a 5 star review for the following reason. The surge protector is useless, the prongs just will not hold the wires in place, they fall out with ridiculous ease. There are reviews on Amazon that mention this, and I do not understand why you cannot correct this problem. I have paid for this item, why can’t I use it?

    • Kelsey Pangallo

      Hello Anthony,

      I am glad that the system is working on stopping the dog! I do completely apologize about the surge protector not working and holding in the wire. That is something that it is intended to do! We would love to send out a replacement surge protector that we thoroughly inspect to make sure that everything checks out okay. We want all our products to work and you to be happy! Please reach out at either [email protected] or 1-800-305-6116.

    Works great. My Two dogs never leave the yard. We fenced in a three acre area. Made in USA!! Customer service is awesome!

  4. Anakin

    This is my second system and experience had lead me to better quality wire. Wire breaks with the 20 gauge drove me nuts on my first system. I had no idea that other wire would work with an electric dog fence until I found FLEXPETZ. The Extreme wire that came with the Pro Grade package is nothing less than amazing. It is like a small cable compared to the kite string 20 gauge. I was very happy when the Tech at FLEXPETZ told me there was an option to buy an American made electric dog fence. I assume all electronic are shipped from Chinese manufactures. Perimeter Technologies is actually manufactured in PA. This is a big deal to me. Anyway, this is a great system. Designed to last.

    I almost bought my electric dog fence from Tractor Supply but was concerned about installing the system. I was asking lot of questions and not getting any answers from the staff at Tractor Supply. I found FLEXPETZ and the free tech support was unbelievable. They helped me find the right system for my pet and property. They helped me design the lay out of the wire and gave great tips for installation process. There are lots of literature and videos on the website as well. Thanks for the help. Jack South Carolina Review by

    I had some questions so I chatted with Matt and he was very helpful. Looking forward to getting the system to install it.

  7. Joe Solnosky

    We have two miniature Dachsunds, and both have acclimated well to the system. The younger one did run through it twice before I realized that maybe the frequency needed adjusted. I call the 800 number and the rep worked through that process. Since then, and extending the range from 10 feet to 14 feet, we have had zero issues. Fantastic system, easy to install (about a day to do everything). I would recommend.

    Peter – Nov 22, 2021

    Called and spoke with Michael regarding some questions before ordering the Pro-grade dog fence. This will be the third dog fence I have installed, so I am somewhat aware of what are the important features in a fence. He was very helpful, knowledgeable, and straight forward which was appreciated. Michael answered all questions in depth, and we felt comfortable enough to then place our order.

  9. Ron

    I spent over $500 for this system (including extra wire & two collars) and after a storm the Panel started beeping. I called the customer service number and spoke with Matt. I explained what happened and figured I’d have to spend a couple hundred more for a new Panel. Nope…Matt took my info and said a new Panel would be on the way. I am so happy this is the dog fence I choose to purchase!
