The DOG GUARD® System
Dog Guard® of Wisconsin is a safe, affordable alternative to traditional pet fences, and uses a veterinarian-approved combination of animal training and state-of-the art electronics to safely train your pet where it can and cannot go. We strongly recommend that you view our infomercial, which provides a friendly yet informative overview for our wireless pet containment systems, the training program and other frequently asked questions.
How a DOG GUARD® of Wisconsin System Works
After your signal wire is buried to define the area(s) of containment (indicated in white on the image), boundary flags are set-up within the perimeter of the signal wire. During the early days of training, you walk your leashed dog around the inside perimeter of your pet containment area, and verbal commands are used to train your pet to avoid the boundary flags.
After your system is activated, when your pet enters the reminder zone (in yellow) 3 to 6 feet from the signal wire, they receive a mild correction stimulus, warning that they are approaching the boundary. If they enter the red correction zone, they receive a stronger correction.
A Complete DOG GUARD® of Wisconsin System includes:
- 1 Dog Guard® Transmitter (more about our transmitters)
Transmits the radio frequency to and throughout the buried signal/boundary wire. Also controls the depth of the correction zone, (the signal field or distance from the wire before a reminder or correction stimulus is used).
- 1 Dog Guard® Lightning Protection Unit
Automatically disconnects the transmitter in case of AC power surges and lightning.
- 1 DG9XT, DG5000 or DG Micro receiver with nylon collar and Battery (see our receivers)
Worn by your pet and used to create the correction stimulus when they enter the correction zones (i.e., the signal field).
- Boundary Wire- 14 Gauge Copper Coated
Carries the signal from the transmitter that defines the areas your pet can and cannot go, but does NOT carry any current of any kind*. Package includes wire for up to half acre. (Additional acreage done for additional cost.)
- Boundary flags
Used during training to help your pet visually recognize where they can and cannot go.
- Unlimited training assistance and instructional manual
- One year battery plan for the receiver collar
