What is a Hidden
Our Hidden Fence is a pet
fencing system that uses an electronic FM radio signal to keep
your dog IN a designated containment area, such as a yard; or
OUT of an area, such as a swimming pool, patio, or garden. Our
pet containment fences also work in the interior of your home to
keep your pet off a couch
or away from a kitchen counter.
does it work?
wire, buried underground, carries the harmless, low level FM
radio signal around the containment area. Your dog wears a
receiver on a collar that emits a mild stimulation, or
correction, when he gets too close to the boundary. With an
indoor dog containment fence, the hidden wire runs around your
couch or other containment area and is invisible to the eye. We
also have "wireless" indoor units that do not require placement
of a boundary wire! Ask The Dog Guy to show you the options.
How is our hidden
fence different than invisible fence
Hidden Fence brand is often confused with the Invisible Fence
brand and may be mistakenly referred to generically as an
"invisible fence". We are not affiliated with the Invisible
Fence company. At
The Dog Guy Pet
we utilize exclusive safety and convenience features that make
The Dog Guy
the best in the indoor pet containment industry. There are
significant differences, for example:
Our product is the only hidden fence system that uses an FM
radio frequency. Other pet containment systems such as Invisible
Fence, utilize an AM radio frequency which is more susceptible
to unsecure AM or DM signals which can cause false corrections
to your pet even when they’re not near the underground fence.
The digital FM signal used by
The Dog Guy
is the most secure and safest for your pet.
Most of our receivers have a two-year battery life — an average
of eight times longer than the other brands, including the
Invisible Fence brand. When the battery runs out, guess who else
runs out? Our long battery life helps keep your pet safe, costs
a fraction of what you pay for other pet containment systems,
and is good for the environment.
In addition to low battery replacement costs compared to
Invisible Fence and other brands, you also save with
The Dog Guy
because you can purchase batteries for our system from any
source. For your convenience, we have an optional battery
replacement plan to ensue you always have a new battery when you
Our R7 Mini and R9 receiver collars have a status battery light
that is easy to view and a great convenience feature for our
customers. It tells you if the receiver is operating properly,
indicates what training level you’re using, and when the battery
power is low.
Our collars also include a unique feature that allows you to
correct your dog with an audible-only reminder when he
approaches the electric fence. Invisible Fence does not offer
this pet-friendly feature.
Whether your pet is very timid or highly energetic, we have a
distinct training level that uniquely meets their needs.
YOU can adjust our patented, programmable receiver to the
training level that works best for your pet's personality and
size. No need for a service call or any other charges.

Pet Containment Company?
Mini and R9 receivers have our exclusive AutoMemory feature. The
receiver constantly monitors and automatically adjusts the
training level for your dog if he "challenges" his boundary.
Both receivers feature FastReact — the fastest response time in
the industry. At .125 of a second, if your pet challenges the
electric fence the receiver will react immediately — at the
beginning of the avoidance zone — not when he’s half way
through. This feature helps ensure your pet responds to the
hidden dog fence while still INSIDE the containment area.
Our pet-friendly audible-only training level that allows you to
train your dog using an audible "beep" tone before you introduce
him to the correction setting. Once trained, most dogs respond
to the audible warning tone and do not challange the boundary.
