Electronic Dog Fence FAQ's

These are most frequently asked questions about PETCARE HIDDEN FENCE, electronic fences and Invisible Fence® Brand alternative systems.

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®

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.

See what others who have had this same concern have said after experiencing our method:

(see "Reviews")

PETCARE HIDDEN FENCE uses only the most advanced technologies and training methods.  Our exclusive GentleStart method focuses on creating the least amount of stress (and distress) possible for both you and your dog. No other company in the hidden fence industry shares this strategy. Our focus is on psychology and positive reinforcement techniques, rather than high shock.  This is so important to us, that Mike Myhal, company owner and dog trainer, is the only individual in Louisiana to earn Advanced Certification in LowStress Litetouch Containment Training by the International Association of Canine Professionals. 

Our success with this approach is one of the main reasons that PETCARE HIDDEN FENCE is the only invisible fence containment company recommended by a former Director of St Tammany Humane Society

Three things:

#1 -PETCARE HIDDEN FENCE is locally-owned and not a franchise, which means we are free to do what is truly best for you and your dog.

#2 - Our Experience. There is no other company in the Louisiana Northhore area with a verifiable 25-year track record of success and the 5-star reviews to prove it.

#3 - Our Exclusive Training and Conditioning Methodology. Based on proven psychological and positive reinforcement techniques developed and refined over 25 years to assure successful, safe results for your pet, and peace of mind for you.

After installing your PetCare Hidden Fence, we personally instruct you and your pet using our exclusive GentleStart training methods and we hold your hand until conditioning is complete with unlimited support. Our simple and humane program guides you and your pet through the learning, awareness and testing phase. Our training program is so radically different from all other high shock, pain-based training methods that within minutes, our clients realize that their fears for their dogs comfort were unfounded. At PetCare Hidden Fence, we believe that a true containment professional is not just someone who can contain your dog, but someone who has the experience and ability to allow your dog to happily learn and accept their boundaries with the least amount of discomfort.

With GentleStart training, the initial stimulation is so tiny that most dogs don’t notice it at first. In fact, we typically ask our clients to feel the tingle before their dog! Of course, this level will not keep your pet home in the long run, but your pet is on a leash at this time and is being gently guided through awareness of their new boundary, and eventually into containment a few days later at a higher stimulation levels.

PETCARE HIDDEN FENCE constantly monitors the industry and emerging technology related to pet safety. At this time (2023), based on research inclding feedback from users as well as professional installers nationwide, our position is that wireless and GPS containment technology is still too inconsistent to be considered reliable enough for us to guarantee both your pet’s safety and your peace of mind.

Much like your cell phone, or your car’s GPS, wireless performance is often at the mercy of signal strength, location, interference, weather, etc. We would not risk a pet’s safety with those factors involved and therefore do not recommend wireless or GPS systems in most cases*

*temporary use while camping or traveling is a possible exception
