DogWatch Hidden Fence - 1200FMD

The DogWatch Hidden Fence 1200FMD is the highest quality electric dog fence on the market. Trusted by dog owners Worldwide, the DogWatch Hidden Fence safely contains pets within your property for peace of mind 24/7. The DogWatch 1200FMD covers areas as small as garden beds or driveways up to properties over 100 acres (with additional wire). The fence is suitable for all pets above 2kg and can contain an unlimited number of pets (with additional receiver collars).

Unlike all other fences that run off an AM signal, the DogWatch Hidden Fence is the only system that has a unique digital FM radio signal that is not affected by Colorbond/sheet metals and electrical noise from other sources such as traditional electric fencing. If you have Colorbond fencing or other sheet metals on your property, we only recommend the DogWatch Hidden Fence system. Dog fences that send an AM radio signal through the wire can be affected/warped by sheet metals which may result in the collar delivering inconsistent corrections to your dog.

What's the Difference Between the Standard and Premium Fence?

The only difference between the Standard Fence and Premium Fence is the receiver collar model. Both systems (standard and premium) include all of the main components; the fence transmitter, 150m of UV stabilised wire, surge protector, training flags and more, the only difference is the receiver collar model. Compare the two models below:

Standard Receiver Collar: The Standard receiver collar has 4 levels of static stimulations designed for dogs with a mild temperament. The stimulation levels are adjustable by you. The unit is completely waterproof, requires replaceable batteries and has a 3-Year Warranty (including a single dog chew replacement).

Premium Receiver Collar: The Premium receiver collar has 7 levels of static stimulation designed for all dogs. The low correction levels on the premium receiver collar are designed for sensitive/timid dogs. The medium correction levels are designed for dogs with a mild temperament, and the high stimulation levels are designed for stubborn/headstrong dogs with a high drive level. The stimulation levels are adjustable by you. Additional features include; automatically increasing levels, TattleTale feature and fast react stimulation. The unit is completely waterproof, requires replaceable batteries and has a 5-year warranty (including a single dog chew replacement).

How the DogWatch 1200FMD Works

There are 3 main components to a containment fence system; The transmitter, wire and receiver collar.

1. Transmitter: The transmitter is placed inside your home or garage and plugged into mains power. The transmitter continuously sends an FM radio signal through the boundary wire.

2. Wire: The boundary wire can either be buried in the ground, attached to any existing fencing or secured in the ground with fence staples. The boundary wire carries the FM radio signal around your property and creates two invisible zones; a warning zone and stimulation zone.

3. Receiver Collar & Stimulation Zones: Your dog's receiver collar communicates with the FM radio signal emitted from the wire. When your dog approaches the warning zone, the collar will deliver an audible warning tone. If your dog ignores the warning tone and proceeds towards the boundary, the collar will deliver a safe static stimulation to remind your dog to retreat back into the 'safe zone'.

Both receiver collars (standard and premium) feature adjustable correction levels that allow you to set the collar at a static stimulation that matches your dog's drive.

The End Result: With consistent training, your dog will understand the boundary area and freely roam around your yard without testing the system.

Features of the DogWatch 1200FMD Containment Fence System

Contains an Unlimited Number of Pets

Add an unlimited number of pets to your containment area with additional receiver collars. Receiver collars fits all pets above 2kg. The DogWatch 1200FMD system is suitable for dogs, cats, goats, alpacas, llamas, cows, horses, geese and more.

Hidden Fence receiver collars are adjustable by you. If you have multiple pets on your property, you can adjust each collar to a level that's suitable for each pet.

Safe to Touch the Wire

The wire is 100% safe to touch. Unlike traditional electric fences that continuously run an electrical current and shock when touched, the DogWatch Hidden Fence 1200FMD (and all other D.I.Y containment fences) emit a radio signal only. This makes the wire completely safe for kids, adults and wildlife - even in wet weather.


Fastest reaction time in the industry. If your pet challenges the boundary at full speed, the receiver collar will deliver a static stimulation at 0.125 seconds.


If your pet has challenged the fence boundary during the day, the receiver collar will alert you with an LED. This will automatically reset every 24 hours.

DogWatch R9 & R12 receiver collars have a user-replaceable battery that lasts up to 2-Years. Hidden Fence is the industry leader when it comes to efficiency and reliability in receiver collars. The smaller R7m and R12m have a 6-month battery life.

Omni-Directional Radio Signal

The radio signal emits in all directions around the wire creating the best possible invisible boundary no matter how your pet approaches the boundary.
