The DogWatch SmartFence PT5 is the most advanced and reliable containment fence system designed by the industry leaders in dog containment. The PT5 combines the features of a standard dog containment fence system with a patented SmartFence Portal that updates you with alerts about your fence system and your dogs.
The DogWatch containment fence system keeps pets within set boundaries by delivering a safe static stimulation through your pet's collar when they too close to the boundary.
The SmartFence PT5 comes with 150m of wire which is enough to cover up to 1/4 of an acre. With additional boundary kits, the fence system is capable of covering up to 200 acres. The fence is suitable for dogs of all sizes and you can contain an unlimited number of pets providing they are wearing compatible receiver collars.
The boundary wire can be attached to any existing fencing, buried in the ground or pegged to the ground surface (be careful not to mow over it). The boundary is entirely customisable and you can create zones around your property, gardens, pools, lakes, verandahs, fence lines and more.
Through WiFi connection, the SmartFence Portal receives information about your fence transmitter, your fence wire and your pet's receiver collar.
This information is sent to the SmartFence App for you to access via your phone, tablet or desktop. You will instantly receive a text or email for any critical alerts such as; battery replacements in your dog's receiver collar, breaks in the wire, or power outages. The SmartFence PT5 provides you with information at your fingertips for extra peace of mind.
Please note: For the SmartFence feature to work, the SmartFence Portal will need direct access to an internet/WiFi router. You will receive an ethernet cable with your purchase.
If you have Colorbond fencing or sheet metal on your property, we only recommend installing a DogWatch fence system. DogWatch is the only fence brand that emits an FM signal from the wire. FM signals are not affected by any forms of sheet metal, electrified wire and stray radio signals.
Other fence brands emit an AM signal from the wire that may be warped by sheet metal, electrified wire and stray radio signals. Warped radio signals can result in your dog receiving inconsistent stimulations even when they're not near the boundary.
Fence Transmitter: The transmitter sits in your house or garage and plugged into mains power. The transmitter continuously emits an FM radio signal through the boundary wire.
Boundary Wire & Stimulation Zones: The boundary wire carries the FM signal around your desired layout area. This FM signal is emitted from the wire creating two invisible zones; the warning zone and the stimulation zone.
Receiver Collar: The receiver collar is worn on your dog's neck and communicates with the FM radio signal emitted from the wire. The collar has 7 levels of static stimulation and tone-only. The levels of stimulation range from very low to very high and are manually adjusted by you.
How it Works: When your dog approaches the wire and walks into the warning zone, your dog's receiver collar delivers an audible beep to let them know that they're in the warning zone. If they ignore the warning tone and continue towards the boundary wire into the stimulation zone, your dog's receiver collar delivers a safe static stimulation through the contact probes to remind them to retreat into the 'safe zone'.
The End Result: With consistent training, your dog will understand the boundary without testing the system.
The SmartFence Communication Portal collects information from your Fence Transmitter and your dog's receiver collar. This information is sent to the SmartFence WebApp - Accessible via desktop or mobile devices. The SmartFence feature works independently from the fence which means if your internet drops out, the containment fence will still keep your dogs within your property.
The SmartFence Portal monitors the condition of your containment fence, and monitors your pet's daily, weekly and monthly activity levels.
|Battery Status||Sends an alert when it's time to replace the SmartCollar battery. A notification will appear on the WebApp and will disappear when the battery replaced.|
|Boundary Loop||Sends an alert if the Boundary wire is disconnected or broken. You will also hear an alarm coming from the transmitter. A notification will appear on the WebApp. The notification will disappear after the boundary wire is repaired. (May take up to 2 minutes to reset).|
|No Collar Connection||Sends an alert if your SmartCollar does not connect with the SmartFence Portal for more than 10 hours. This could be caused by a flat battery, receiver damage (e.g dog chew) or the collar being out of range of the Portal. A notification will appear on the WebApp. The notification will disappear after the SmartCollar has reconnected to the Portal. (May take up to 1 hour to reset.)|
|Transmitter Running on Battery Back-up (PowerPak)||Sends an alert if the power goes out and the PowerPak (optional) is used to power the Transmitter for more than 2 minutes. A notification will appear on the WebApp. It will disappear when the transmitter is reconnected to power. (May take up to 2 minutes to reset.)|
|No Transmitter Connection||An alert is sent if the Portal loses its connection with the transmitter for more than 1 hour. This could be triggered by a loss of power, lightning damage or surge damage. A notification will appear on the WebApp and will disappear when the transmitter signal reconnects to the Portal. May take up to 2 minutes to reset.)|
|Pet(s) Profile||Create a profile for your pet. Include your pet's SmartCollar ID, Breed, Gender, Size, and Date of Birth.|
|Contacts||Add contacts who you want to receiver system information via text message and/or email. You can add multiple contacts, such as family members or dog walkers. You can choose which alerts you want them to receive|
|Activity Levels||Monitor your pet’s daily, weekly and monthly activity levels. Find out if your dog has been active, moderately active, lightly active or resting.|
|System Settings||Monitor your system settings.

If you have any form of sheet metals on your property, DogWatch fencing systems are the only recommendation for your property. Other containment fence brands emit an AM signal through the wire. AM signals are affected and warped by sheet metal material. Warped radio signals may cause your pet's receiver collar to deliver inconsistent corrections even if they aren't near the boundary.

Fence Works Independently
The containment fence function of the DogWatch Hidden Fence works independently. It does not rely on the SmartFence feature to keep your dogs safely contained. The containment fence WILL continue to work if:
The Wire Is Safe To Touch
The boundary wire is not electrified which means it's completely safe for humans and wildlife to touch.
Due to the size of the collar module, we recommend this fencing system for dogs above 5kg. The collar levels are adjustable from a very low level to a very high level for timid to stubborn dogs. Suitable breeds include, but are not limited to the following:
Is your dog under 5kg?
DogWatch has smaller collar module sizes available for dogs under 5kg. These smaller collar module sizes are compatible with the fencing system function however they do not feature the SmartFence System compatibility. The smaller collar modules are available in standard and premium models.
