A Better Choice for Safer Pets™

PETCARE HIDDEN FENCE was started over twenty five years ago when the owner, Michael Myhal became increasing aware of the growing number of strays and pet fatalities appearing on the roads of St Tammany Parish. Over the past two and half decades, through the customer service demands of Hurrican Katrina and others, PetCare has successfully built a reputation for being dedicated to the safety and protection of four-legged family members, and peace-of-mind for their owners.

We Service All Brands






Local, Reliable & Fanatical About Pet Safety

Like many dog lovers, we are deeply invested emotionally in our “four-legged kids” – my dogs. They are not “like” family, they ARE family. That passion is extended into caring for our clients dogs like they were our own, and unlike out of-town competitors, our clients are our NEIGHBORS. Saying goodbye to a beloved pet is hard enough, but losing one because they dug under or climbed over a fence, ran through an open gate or door, or bolted into traffic is a grief that no one should have to live with.

Tired of high prices for batteries and slow service?  Did another company “fry” train your dog and now they won’t leave the porch or the house? Want a gentler system that is just as strong but uses psychology more than pain to keep your dog at home?  Tried a do-it-yourself system that’s not working?

Mike showed true care for us and our pup and has been with us every single step of the way. Best thing we have done for the pup and our sanity. Highly recommend!

We have a fenced in yard but live on a corner of a fairly busy intersection for our neighborhood. Definitely lots of foot, bike, and golf cart traffic. Two of our four rescue pups had learned out to climb or jump our fence when they saw other four legged friends they wanted to greet. Mike came out within hours had us feeling better about our situation. Now, not only have we eliminated the fear of our pets getting out by jumping the fence, but we can keep them a few feet away from the fence so they aren't jumping up at all passersby when they are outside. Very, very pleased -- and relieved!

We have been customers for the past 15 years. From the time our fence was installed until now the team is always professional, prompt and does whatever it takes to complete the job. The service is consistent 15 years running. I highly recommend this team.

We had Pet Care hidden fence installed over a year ago. JohnMichael was amazing. I had to call him several times about training Josie our Australian Shepherd. He sent text and videos on the training. Today I am very excited to say, we leave her (Josie) out all day. She does not go near the hidden fence. We have 2 acres on a very busy highway. Thanks again Pet Care hidden fence. We would do it all again. It’s so worth the money we spent.

We have used PetCare with Mike for over 20 years. We began with our first dog some 20 years ago with Mike who came and did the fence installation and helped train the dog to adhere to the fence signals. Since then, we upgraded to a newer unit about five years ago. In those 20+ years that fence has kept 5 dogs safe and Mike has done excellent service keeping that installation working through 2 hurricanes and other mishaps. I can’t say enough positive things about PetCare and the service it provides. If you are entertaining looking for an invisible fence, you need look no further than PetCare with Mike.

When you are getting a hidden fence the two most important things to look for are good training for your dog, and trust. In the case of Mandeville’s Pet Care Hidden Fence, you are assured of both. Mike at Pet Care installed our fence nine years ago. Our dog was so well trained by one of his assistants in the beginning, that she has escaped only twice in all those years, neither time by breaching the fence. In addition, any time I have need help, Pet Care comes right away. You can count on them. Mike and his staff really care about the safety of our beloved lab. And that is what I mean by trust. You can really trust your dogs security to Pet Care Hidden Fence. Pamela Lott. 5/26/22.

Michael installed our pet fence over 4 years ago and it has been great. Hurricane Ida damaged the perimeter wire and Michael expertly found and repair the break and we couldn’t be happier. Our dog has her yard back safely! Michael was great!

These are most frequently asked questions about PETCARE HIDDEN FENCE, electronic fences and Invisible Fence® Brand alternative systems. Please contact us with any unanswered questions

In a word , yes! The concept of underground invisible fencing has been around since the early 70's. Since the late 80's when the original patents expired, there have been improvements and innovations throughout the industry. Today, millions of households worldwide enjoy the peace of mind and joy that comes from providing your four-legged family members the safety and freedom they deserve.

Q: I've heard that some dogs just run through some systems, how do I know my dog won't?

If a dog breaks through a boundary, statistics point to these three reasons as the most common:

#1 - Do-It-Yourself systems. When installing and training, strictly adhering to manufacturer guidelines is crucial for success. Without experience, this can prove challenging for many people, resulting in containment failure.

#2 - A breakdown in system maintenance. Not all systems have professional features like low battery indicators, wire break alarms, etc. If the fence is not working properly or the collar is too loose, dogs can exploit the weakness.

#3 - Poor, incomplete, inadequate or High Shock training

PETCARE HIDDEN FENCE specializes in the most advanced training methods and technologies available in the industry. Johnmichael Myhal, owner and dog trainer, is the only trainer in Louisiana who has earned Advanced Certification in Low Stress LiteTouch Containment Training Methods awarded by the International Association of Canine Professionals.

It would difficult (if not impossible) to have 100% 5-Star Reviews after being in business for 25 years if we weren't committed to the success of your system and the safety of your pups!

Although many people use "invisible fence" as a generic term for all electronic containment systems, it is actually a brand name much like "Kleenex".

PETCARE HIDDEN FENCE is a privately owned, Louisiana, LLC.  We specialize in the sales and professional installation of only the premier electronic containment systems in the industry, and we offer service on all other brands of fencing systems.  We constantly monitor the industry and only recommend components with the highest quality and reliability that have a proven reputation and a track record of success in the field. According to our research, the best company in the industry matching those standards is currently Pet Stop®(see Recommendations - 2008)   

While the basic concept of a buried wire connected to a radio transmitter that signals a receiver on the dogs collar is the same, there are significant differences between manufacturers in regards to both technology and training methodologies. There are reasons why we say that PetCare Hidden Fence is "A Better Choice for Safer Pets ©"

Underground, invisible and Hidden Dog Fences use a combination of technology and training to teach your pet where they can go and where they can't.

Pet containment training is a critical part of the process.

Only PETCARE HIDDEN FENCE offers onsite training with IACP certified trainers and unlimited ongoing phone support to make it easy to successfully condition your pet to the system. You may have as many pets as you want on the same system, each dog needs a digital, micro-Programmable receiver collar.  Training typically takes between 7 and 14 days depending upon the dog.

Our exclusive GentleStart™ training program will help your pet first learn the boundaries and then...to avoid them.  White flags are placed  around the perimeter as a visual cue to help your pet recognize their new boundaries.  These flags are paired with a warning tone, and then an electronic stimulus.  The level of stimulation is adjustable for different personalities, temperaments and breed characteristics. 

A tiny, computerized digital receiver worn on your pet's collar receives the coded radio signal and the internal software generates either a warning, graduated or immediate electronic stimulation (depends on chosen programming) to teach your pet to avoid the boundary.

Although our state-of-the-art receivers have the strength and capability to handle the most stubborn of dogs, our technology and GentleStart™  training focuses on positive reinforcement training, helping you use only as much correction in the training process as your dog requires.

The GentleStart™  training process combined with an excellent track record for successfull containment and customer service, is part of why PETCARE HIDDEN FENCE is the ONLY electronic underground fence company to receive a written recommendation by the former director of the  St Tammany Humane Society and other area Pet Professionals.

Nearly everyone has this concern! Fortunately, our 100% 5-Star Google review track record attests to our commitment to making sure each new client has the same success.  In the past 25 years, we have developed a simple yet effective method for successful containment that has created our sterling reputation for helping dog lovers keep their pups safely at home.
