The Dog Guard System
How a Dog Guard® Out-of-Sight Fencing System Works
After your signal wire is buried to define the area(s) of containment (indicated in white to the right), boundary flags are setup 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 your choice of an audio signal or a mild correction stimulus, warning that they are approaching the boundary. If they enter the red correction zone, they receive a stronger correction.
90 Day Pet Containment Guarantee
With “Clear Boundaries with Dog Guard” you get a 90 Day pet containment guarantee; if you are not satisfied with how your pets are contained, you get your money back! All of It!
Clear Boundaries with Dog Guard is so confident that your dog or cat will be safe and contained in your yard that Clear Boundaries with Dog Guard will give you a 90 day pet containment guarantee. If we can’t contain your dog or cat, then Clear Boundaries with Dog Guard will refund the full purchase price of your pet containment system.
Note the phrase “refund the full purchase price” unlike most other underground dog fence companies which only return full price except “installation” or some other fee. (If the receivers are damaged, most commonly by dog chews, a re-casing fee may be charged)
We simply ask you to work with our professional trainers and follow the training protocol given. Dog Guard® has spent many years innovating and improving both our equipment and training methods. The training protocol used at Clear Boundaries is designed to not stress out or scare your pet. This helps prevents your pets from becoming “porch sitter’s”, which happens when a pet becomes scared of their yard. This does not happen often, however, our training methods is a major reason why it doesn’t.
Made in America
We are living in a time when a lot of manufacturing jobs have gone over seas and all of our primary competitors have followed this unfortunate trend. Being made in America is only a good thing if the quality is better than the other guys. It is funny that the overseas guys have a 1 or 2 year warranty and offer you the chance to purchase an extended warranty. Dog Guard® believes in their products and only offers one warranty, a limited lifetime warranty to the original purchaser. The warranty covers both workmanship and materials, along with lightning strikes, provided you have a Dog Guard® Surge Protector on your system.
Our transmitter and computer collars only communicate with each other. This results in superior accuracy without false activations that most of the other major brands of pet containment experience. This means your dogs can wear the collars in the house.
Much Heavier Wire
We use a heavy 14 gauge solid copper wire with an extra thick casing that is designed for direct burial. With other brands of pet fences you can have 2 or 3 upgrades before you get to 14 gauge wire and another upgrade for solid copper. The smaller wire offers an adequate antenna, but not the strength to last the harsh environment of extreme moisture, the ground freezing, tree roots growing and moles looking for food. At Clear Boundaries with Dog Guard, our goal is to only install equipment that will last for decades.
12 to 15 Day Training Time in Most Cases
We have a very thorough and friendly training program, which prevents anxiety and “porch sitter” syndrome caused by fear of the yard, often from accelerated training procedures. Most major brand pet containment companies install high numbers of fences and have a need to shorten or accelerate the training process. We are very particular when it comes to our dog trainings and ensure an accurate yet friendly training schedule. This means your dog will be safe and happy and this means our pet owners are happier too!
Correction Level Adjustments
Our t-4 computer transmitter allows our customers to
decrease or increase the correction level (collar shock).
This allows us to consult you over the phone when there
might be a circumstance, which requires a change in the
system program. A few examples of this might be a new dog, a
dog that has more than doubled in size, or maybe a change in
the system layout etc. etc. The other major brands have set
up the equipment so that they are the only ones whom can
make the adjustments and will charge you accordingly. We are
always available within 24 hours of your call should you
prefer us to come out, but 90% of the time our customers can
consult with us over the phone and make the changes
themselves. This means, again you save money on
