The Dog Guard® Pet Containment System
A Dog Guard® Out-of-Sight Fencing System
uses a veterinarian-approved combination of animal training and
state-of-the art electronics to safely train your pet where it
can and cannot go, and is a safe, affordable alternative to
traditional pet fences.
We strongly recommend that you

How a Dog Guard® Out-of-Sight Fencing System Works
After your signal wire is buried to define the area(s) of
containment (indicated in white to the right), boundary flags
are setup within the perimeter of the signal wire. During the
early days of training, you walk your leashed dog around the
inside perimeter of your pet containment area, and verbal
commands are used to train your pet to avoid the boundary flags.
After your system is activated, when your pet enters the
reminder zone (in yellow) 3 to 6 feet from the signal wire, they

they enter the red correction zone, they receive a stronger

Transmits the radio
frequency to and throughout the buried signal/boundary wire.
Also controls the depth of the correction zone, (the signal
field or distance from the wire before a reminder or
correction stimulus is used).
- 1 DG9XT, DG5000 or DG Micro receiver with nylon
Worn by your pet and used to
produce a tone or correction stimulus when they enter the
reminder or correction zones (i.e., the signal field).
