Dog Fence Installation – HOW IT WORKS

A sales representative will visit your home for a FREE ESTIMATE to assess your needs. We will walk around your yard and discuss where you do and do not want your dog to have access to. The layout is customizable, meaning we can give your dog access to the whole yard or only certain areas, such as the back yard only (please see samples below). We have the capability to exclude areas you would like to keep the dog away from, such as garden beds or ponds. Once we establish your needs we will schedule you for an install. This is when we can answer the question: How much does a dog fence cost? Your sales representative will show you multiple pricing options to fit your needs.

This is how the system works: A wire is installed around your yard along the boundaries you chose. The wire connects to a computer box that sends a digital signal around the boundary. Your dog will be fitted with a comfortable receiver collar. When the dog approaches the wire the collar beeps to alert the dog. If the dog continues to move towards the wire the collar will activate a sensation. What this sensation feels like depends on your dog’s sensitivity level and will be determined during training.

Dog Fence Training will start on the day of installation and continue until your dog understands the boundaries. New fence packages include all equipment, installation, set up/ programming of electronics, complete training, warranty, and money-back guarantee. Your sales representative will be able to give you multiple package options and prices.

Perimeter Loop

This design will protect every exit from your house and garage while allowing them access to the whole yard.

Hour Glass or Figure Eight or 2 Zone system

Keep your dog in either the front yard only, or the back yard only. This is what most of our customers recommend. It keeps your dog in the back yard so he cannot get to the front yard and bother anyone pulling into the driveway, or walking up to the front of the house. This also gives you a front yard zone. It’s always good to protect EVERY door that your dog may get out of, so if someone accidentally lets the dog out of the garage door, or front door, there is a system in place to keep them from the sidewalk or road.

One zone only system

Keep your dog in the backyard only, or the front yard only. It’s your choice which part of the yard to keep.

Open-loop system

We can also run a 3 sided or open-loop dog fence system. We do systems on lakefront property and use an open-loop system to allow the dog in the water or get to a boat dock. We even have the option of closing off the loop in the winter, so you don’t have to worry about your dog falling through the ice.

A three-sided system is also used when a conventional fence system is in one part of the yard, and we provide underground fence for the rest of the yard.



Garden & landscape loops

In addition to your customized boundaries, we can also install loops around areas you would like to protect such as bushes, trees, landscaping, ponds, pools, or anything else on your property. The dogs easily learn that these areas are off-limits and they are free to roam the rest of your yard.

The Endless Boundary system

The Endless Boundary feature is our revolutionary enhancement to underground dog fences. Many underground dog fence systems fail because if a dog continues to run beyond the area of activation they will only receive one correction. At this point, the correction system disconnects. With the Endless Boundary system a dog continues to receive corrections BEYOND the dog fence perimeter. Even stubborn dogs will remain within the perimeter with this system.

Our hidden pet fence dog collars work with both indoor and outdoor systems. The power to restrict locations is in your hands completely with our service. We are experts and customizing where you want your dog to be able to go and where you want it restricted from. Let us install and electronic pet fencing system that will meet your needs at an affordable price TODAY.

Client Testimonials

J. Thomas - Albany, NY

“I had a great experience with hidden pet fence. I called, got a quote from 2 companies and this one was the best option. We chose them because they are a local company, and was more knowledgeable and less expensive then the other company, and they had a better warranty. Highly recommended!”

R. Mauger - Albany, NY


It works perfect. 3 people said that an invisible fence would not keep my dog in and the guy gave us a guarantee that it would work. My dog is stubborn and not so smart, and the trainer had to use the collar that works past the line because of how crazy my dog is. The collar that works past the line is what we liked about the dog yard fence vs the invisible fence “company”. We also chose them because they are a local company and not a huge franchise. I couldn’t be happier with this company.
