FAQ'S

What is a PetSitter® Hidden Fence System?

 The PetSitter Hidden Fence is a pet fencing system that uses an  electronic 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. 

How does it work?

 A     hidden wire, buried underground or along a fence, 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 your local Dealer to show you the     options. 

How does my dog learn where the boundary is?

 You and Your  pet are taught and trained by San Diego Pet Fence Trainers.  Your pet learns the containment area first through voice commands and then audible warning signals from the receiver collar.  Visual flags set inside the hidden fence add a reminder to help them learn. Your dog goes through a training session with you for a few minutes each day for 7 to 10 days. With training, the dog  remembers the placement of the flags and  is taught to stay within the containment area.  If your dog goes to within 5-10  feet of the boundary, he’ll receive a mild correction. 

How is PetSitter different from Invisible Fence® and other brands?

PetSitter does not have a battery of the month club.  


We do not upsell and we are the only system designed by professional animal trainers.


The system itself is one of the most powerful systems around and for good reason.  We can handle just about the roughest of dogs and the largest estates.

Will the stimulation from the collar hurt my dog?

 No.     This type of stimulation has been used in dog training for over 40     years. And the amount of correction can be adjusted so that a dog receives the appropriate level of stimulation for its size. PetSitter products are used and recommended by veterinarians. 

Will the system work for more than one dog?

 Yes. There is no limit to the number of dogs (or cats) our hidden pet fencing can protect at one time .
