Quality Electric Dog Fences and Containment Systems
Effective electronic dog fences/containment systems
Electric dog fences deliver a radio signal to your dog's collar, giving them a gentle static pulse that reminds them to stay within specific boundaries. Benefits of containment fence systems include:
- Preventing your dog/s from escaping and eliminating the risk of your dog getting hit by a car.
- Never having to pick your dog up from the pound, pay expensive vet bills or council fees.
- No compulsory set up - You can set up the boundary the way you want!
30-day performance guarantee - Buy it, Try it, if it doesn't work - send it back!
No more escaping dogs with a quality electric dog fence!
Dog containment fences (also known as hidden dog fences or inground radio fences) are an extremely effective method of preventing your dog from escaping your property or preventing your pet from digging out your favourite award winning flower garden or vegetable patch.
Here at Bark Control Australia, we only stock quality dog fence brands, including:
The Dogwatch Hidden Fence System is the World's best Dog Containment System on the market!
Our electric dog fence systems are also a cost-effective escaping dog solution compared to rebuilding or installing structural fences.
How do they work?
With your containment fence system, you will receive:
- A Radio Signal Transmitter box
- Radio Signal Wire 150m or 300m - Extra wire is available for purchase if needed
- A Receiver Collar for your dog
The Radio Signal Transmitter box is connected to a main source of power (undercover and out of the weather). The Radio Signal wire is run from this transmitter, looping around the desired containment area and returning back to the transmitter.
The wire can be attached to existing fencing or placed underground. The transmitter sends a signal through this wire and your dog's collar is programmed to pick up the wire's radio signal and deliver a warning or correction depending on how close your dog gets to the boundary.
Your dog's receiver collar will first warn the dog with a beep or vibration then deliver a static pulse correction if they continue to walk towards the boundary.
Once setup is complete, you will need to train your dog how to interact with the new boundary system. Our dog fencing systems are safe to touch, unlike electrified fencing!
Which containment fence is right for me?
The correct fence for your dog depends on a number of factors including:
- The size of the desired boundary
- Your current physical fencing
- Your dog's breed, age, size and temperament
Containment fence systems have the ability to surround small areas such as garden beds and vegetable patches up to large 100-acre properties! An unlimited amount of dogs can be contained by the boundary system providing they are wearing a compatible receiver collar. Suitable for dogs above 2kg.
There is a wide range of additional receiver collars available on our site. Please note that some receiver collars are set to one level of stimulation whereas other collars have the option of adjusting the correction strength.

How Does an Electric Dog Fence work?
An electric dog fencing system works by running a wire around your property that is connected to a transmitter. Your dog wears a fence collar that picks up a radio signal from this wire and warns the dog away from the correction zone you have set up. If your dog continues into the correction zone they will begin to receive static pulses from the containment collar until they leave the area. For a full rundown on how an electric dog fence works, view this article - How Containment Systems or Electric Dog Fences Actually Work.
What is the Right Dog Containment Fence for My Dog?
Selecting the correct dog containment system for your dog will depend on your dog's breed, age, size, temperament and your current fencing. This is to ensure you will have a dog feence that can handle the size and layout of the property and an appropriately sized collar with enough reach in stimulation to contain each of your dogs. For a closer look into the dog containment systems available, please view this guide - Making sure you Choose the Right Electric Dog Fence.
Do I Have to Bury the Electric Dog Fence Wire?
As with all dog containment fence systems or electronic dog fencing you can either bury your wire around the containment area, lay it above the ground (avoid mowing over it!) or attach it to your existing fences (if you have colourbond fences, please contact us prior to ordering your electric dog fencing system). If you would like some assistance with finalising your layout area, view this installation guide - Popular Dog Containment System Layouts.
Do I Have to Train My Dog to Use an Electronic Dog Fence?
Training your dog to understand the electric dog fencing is one of the most important parts of the initial setup. It's important for the dog to understand how they must react when their dog fence collar gives them a warning beep or correction. Completing the training will ensure that your dog is safely contained and understands where its new boundaries are. To learn more on the importance of dog containment fence training please view this article - Why do I Need to Train My Dog to Use an Electric Dog Fence?
How do I Train My Dog to Understand Electric Dog Fencing?
All electronic dog fencing kits will come with a comprehensive setup and training manual for you to work with and most dog containment systems will even include a training DVD to help you. If you would like to view our simple version of dog fence training, please view this article - Dog Fences...A Simple Training Guide.
Can My Dog Wear the Electronic Dog Fence Collar All the Time?
Your dog can comfortably wear the dog fencing collar for a maximum of 10-12 hours a day. Prolonged use can cause skin irritation and in some cases pressure necrosis. With training, most dogs will avoid the dog containment fence even when they don't have the collar on. If you have a particularly persistent dog that needs to wear the collar for longer periods, you can also consider the use of a 24 hour contact pad that allows longer, constant use - Surface Conductor Grid -24Hour Contact Pad.
