Invisible Fence® Solutions
Frequently Asked Questions
How does the Invisible Fence® Brand system work?
The Invisible Fence® Brand system works by burying a wire a few inches below the surface, which connects to a transmitter in the garage or basement and sends a radio signal to the collar that your pet wears. The collar sounds an audible warning when your pet gets too close to the boundary and learns to avoid the warning sound. With proper training, your pet will quickly learn where the boundary is to stay out of harm's way.
Will Invisible Fence® Brand solution work for me?
Since 1973, Invisible Fence® Brand has been keeping dogs Safe @ Home™ with an amazing 99.5% success rate. For more than 30 years, over 50,000 customers across the tri-state area and throughout New England have trusted Canine Company professionals to safely contain their dogs and cats with the only system recommended by 4 out of 5 veterinarians.*
An Invisible Fence® Brand outdoor system works in practically any size yard - from 1/4 acre to more than 25 acres. Unlike traditional fencing, Invisible Fence® Brand systems can also section off and protect pools, gardens and landscaping without the use of unsightly fencing around those areas. An Invisible Fence® boundary goes almost anywhere - from rocky terrain and wooded areas to underwater!
One of our Professional Pet Consultants will come to your home to evaluate the temperament of your dog and walk your property to make sure that the Invisible Fence® system is a good fit for you and your pet.
Is there a guarantee?
The Invisible Fence® system is backed by the strongest product warranties and performance guarantees in the industry. We offer a minimum of a one-year equipment warranty on all professionally installed outdoor systems. Not only is your pet kept safe - so is your investment!
Canine Company also provides a one-year pet containment guarantee when our customers purchase at least 2 training sessions from Canine Company.
How is a dog or cat trained to the system?
Canine Company will provide comprehensive training so your pet completely understands his boundaries. Our trainers are skilled behaviorists who customize the training for each individual pet's needs and temperament. The training process used by Canine Company is conveniently in your home and gives you peace of mind knowing that your pet will be safely protected on your property.
To get started, you and your Canine Company trainer will teach your pet to avoid the boundaries of your property using visual flag cues and audio "warning beeps". Our training is based on positive reinforcement and continually rewards your pet to stay happily within his safety zone.
As training progresses, your Canine Company trainer will introduce the correction to your pet, which reinforces the boundaries of your property and tells your pet clearly where he can and cannot go. The Invisible Fence® system works humanely and safely to ensure that it keeps your pet Safe @ Home™.
How old does a puppy need to be to start training?
With Perfect Start™ Pet Training, puppies as young as eight weeks can be introduced and gently trained to the Invisible Fence® system and it works great for cats too!
Canine Company trainers gently introduce dogs and cats to their safe areas and teach the pets how they can turn the system "on" and "off" while respecting their boundaries with audible tones. Training usually starts indoors and according to Dr. Daniel Estep, DVM "Perfect Start™ is more efficient, humane and animal friendly."
Are all pet containment systems the same?
Absolutely not. The professional services provided by Canine Company and the superior technology of the Invisible Fence® Brand truly differentiate our pet containment system from the rest of the pack.
From sales to service, our trained professionals get to know you and your pet to provide an installation that best meets your own personal needs. Then, our certified trainers work with you to train your pet to the system. Finally our customer service center is there to answer your questions and help with any additional needs you may have. We're here for you 6 days a week, all year long.
Canine Company proudly stands behind all of our installations and trainings. Because we only use Invisible Fence® Brand technology, you automatically receive a one year manufacturer equipment warranty.
Lastly, 4 out of 5 veterinarians recommend the Invisible Fence® Brand solutions to their clients to provide their dogs with safety and freedom. And more than 80% of all vets and their staff who own electronic pet containment systems, own an Invisible Fence Brand® solution.*
Does the Invisible Fence® Brand system work indoors?
Create pet free zones inside your home with an Invisible Fence® indoor solution. The indoor transmitter is a 5 inch square and works alone or seamlessly with the outdoor system using the same Invisible Fence® Computer Collar®. The transmitter can be hidden behind furniture, under stairs, in between floors or under a table - so you can say goodbye to baby gates and closed doors!
The indoor solution is perfect for cats too, keeps them off furniture or other places that you'd prefer they don't explore.
How much does the Invisible Fence® Brand system cost?
Every system is built to satisfy the specific needs of the individual customer and their pet. When determining the final price, several factors must be considered, such as property size, type of equipment purchased, number of training sessions purchased and how many pets will be on the system (did we mention you can have multiple pets on the same system?).
