SmartFence receiver collar
SmartFence logo

The SmartFence receiver is a full feature receiver with a 1 year battery life and all the safety features of our award-winning R9 receiver plus the SmartFence connectivity features that alert you when the battery is low and let you track your pet’s activity . . . wherever you are.

1-Year Battery Life

The SmartFence receiver has an outstanding one year battery life. Compare the SmartFence battery life to only 3-4 months in other brands. Fewer battery changes = greater safety for your pet and less expense for you (and better for the environment).

User Programmable

DogWatch receivers have multiple settings for different pet personalities and can be set individually for each pet. The settings are easy to understand and easy to adjust – no service call required.

Status Light

In addition to the low-battery notification you will receive via text and/or email from your SmartFence, there is also a multi-function status light on the receiver that indicates when the battery is low or needs to be replaced. It also shows you if your pet has recently challenged the boundary (the “Tattletale” feature).

High Impact, Waterproof

The DogWatch receiver is tested to withstand the harsh outdoor elements of rain, sleet and snow . . . as well as rigorous play!

AutoMemory®

If your pet challenges the boundary, this patented safety feature automatically increases the receiver level for 24 hours.

GentleFit™ Contact Posts

These unique contact posts are easy on your dog’s skin. They are smooth like our standard stainless steel contact posts to minimize friction and low profile for a comfortable Pet-Friendly fit. Purrfect for cats and dogs with short coats.

Audible Boundary Warning Alert

The SmartFence receiver includes an audible warning to alert your pet that he is approaching the fence boundary. Through our PetFriendly™ training program, your pet learns to retreat from the boundary area when he hears the alert.

FastReact®

If your dog runs at the boundary, the receiver reacts with a warning signal before he reaches the wire, not while he is traveling over it.

The most advanced technology and the easiest to use.

SmartFence Transmitter
Digital FM design trademark logo

DogWatch is the ONLY hidden fence that uses an FM frequency; all other hidden dog fences operate on an AM signal.

 

SafeLink® Digital FM Technology

Our patented digital FM technology provides the maximum protection against false activation caused by stray radio signals. DogWatch is the only pet fence system that offers FM technology – and that makes DogWatch the most secure and the most Pet-Friendly™ hidden fence available.

Flexible Training Levels

The combination of settings on the DogWatch transmitter and receiver offers up to twenty easy to understand options to ensure safe and appropriate training and containment for your pet. You can even set your system to “audible only” when introducing your dog to his new boundaries.

Range Setting and Loop Monitor

This dual function display allows you to set the width of the signal field to best meet the personalities of your pet(s): The lights on the display are an easy way to see the signal field setting and they are also a visual alert if there is a change in the strength of the boundary signal or to a break in the boundary wire. If there is an wire break, there is also an warning alarm that alerts you to check the system. This is an invaluable safety feature for underground fences.

Lightning Protection

Your DogWatch pet fence is protected should your home experience an electrical surge due to lightning. We’ve gone to extremes, like no one else, to equip your DogWatch Hidden Fence with both internal and external surge protection. External Surge Protection directs power surges and lightning from the boundary wire to the ground rod into the earth and away from your home. Internal Surge Protection suppresses surges coming in through your house wiring and diverts them to your house ground.

What is a DogWatch SmartFence®?

The DogWatch SmartFence® is a hidden underground pet fencing system (often referred to generically as an “invisible fence”) that uses a 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. The SmartFence has a communication component that will notify you by text and/or email if there is a break in the underground fence or if your pet’s collar battery is low, so you will know before your pet does if there is an issue with the fence working as it should. It will also let you know if your pet is testing his boundaries and will track your pet’s activity.

How does the SmartFence® work?

As with all hidden (“invisible”) dog fences, the “fence” part of the DogWatch SmartFence® is created by burying a ‘boundary wire’ a few inches underground around your property. The buried wire carries a harmless, low level radio signal from a transmitter installed in your house or garage. Your pet wears a lightweight, waterproof receiver collar (SmartCollar) that recognizes the radio signal. As your pet approaches the buried wire, the receiver collar emits a warning signal (audible or vibration). If your pet travels further, he will receive a mild but safe stimulation (also called a “correction”) from the receiver collar. Through a training program, your pet learns to recognize his fence boundaries and learns to stop at the warning signal.

In addition to the basic hidden fence, the SmartFence uses a special “communication portal” connected to your home Internet. The portal receives signals from both the transmitter installed in your house or garage and the receiver worn by your dog. These signals communicate information about the status of your hidden fence, your dog’s collar, and your dog’s activity. If the portal detects an issue, such as a break in the boundary wire or a low battery in the receiver collar, it triggers an alert which will be sent to you (and/or whoever else you designate) via text and/or email.

Information from the SmartFence portal can be accessed using our SmartFence WebApp on your mobile device or desktop computer. You can view the status of your SmartFence and any alerts, your pet’s activity, and if your pet has been challenging the boundary (i.e., if your pet has been triggering the audible alert.)

Can I use a SmartFence® if I do not have Internet?

You can use the Hidden Fence (the containment part of the fence) without the Internet. The communication part of the system (notification alerts, system settings and activity tracking) will not work without an Internet connection.

Can I use a SmartFence® if I do not have a smartphone?

Yes, you can still get text message and/or email alerts and you can access your SmartFence® WebApp profile from any computer or other Internet enabled device.

Is the SmartFence® WebApp available on both iPhone and Android devices?

Yes, the SmartFence® WebApp works on both iPhone and Android devices. The WebApp is not an “App” that you download in the App Store or Play Store. Instead, it is a progressive web app, accessible via any internet browser (Safari, Chrome, etc.). The WebApp can be saved to the home screen of your mobile device for easy access. For more information about how to access, setup and save the WebApp, please see our SmartFence™ Quick Start Guide or SmartFence™ Owner’s Guide.

What will happen to my SmartFence® if my Internet isn’t working?

The Hidden Fence (the containment part of the fence) is not dependent on the Internet and will work as it should even if your Internet is turned ‘off’ or not working. If your Internet is turned ‘off’ or not working, you will not receive notification alerts, system settings and activity tracking until your Internet connection is restored.

What happens when the SmartCollar™ travels out of range of the Communication Portal?

The SmartCollar™ is designed with the understanding that your pet will probably spend time in parts of the yard that may be beyond the transmission range of your SmartFence® Communication Portal. That’s OK!

What if I do not have an extra Ethernet port on my router?

The SmartFence® requires the use of an Ethernet port. You may be able to add ports to your router by connecting it to an Ethernet switch. These devices should be available at stores such as Staples® or Best Buy®.

Emily K.

Working with DogWatch was so easy, Maryann came to the house, told us all we needed to know and then soon after came back to install. The installation took less than two hours and then had a short training session. If you do what she says, you will have no issues. We now are able to let our dogs out without supervision and without worry, even though we live next to a busy road. There is no price you can put on peace of mind, but the price was also very reasonable, highly recommend.

Debbie S.

Training was simple and easy. After following the routine, have had no problems. Our 7 month old German Shepherd puppy is happy and can run free. Maryann explained all functions in an easy to follow way.
