How Does Our Fence Compare To Other Fences?

Hidden Pet Fence compared to other fences:

Our Hidden Pet Fence system compared to the invisible fence® brand

We really want folks to understand that we are a full service company when it comes to keeping your dogs safe! We aren't just a company that installs an Invisible Fence®, and that's it. We also include training for your adult dogs and puppies. We have a 100% success rate and have been in business since 1992! Take a moment to look at the chart below that is a direct comparison to the Invisible Fence brand®.

We are locally owned and operated with several offices across NY state! We also want customers to understand that the Invisible Fence brand® is no longer locally owned. The local dealerships were bought out by a holding company that shut down the access to the local offices. The company is being run by a corporate call center in Knoxville Tennessee.  In the busy months of April till November, service to you house can be as long as 4 months! Most of our service is done within a few weeks.

Invisible fencing by Hidden Pet Fence of NY Inc vs. Traditional Above Ground Fences

1-Dogs can jump over or dig under a regular above ground fence

2-The front door and garage doors are not protected. Dogs get out the door and run out of the yard

3-Gates can be left open by kids, friends, family which letting the dogs out of the fenced area

4-Weed whacking around the whole above ground fence is time consuming

5-Cost - definitely the biggest reason. 

Pricing for conventional above ground chain link fencing starts at about $4000 for a 1/4 acre backyard only. This starting price is an average price for chain link dog fencing including links, rods and one entry gate. Our installed invisible fence is less than half that cost. Privacy fencing, vinyl fencing, wood fencing, or even a rod iron type fence will greatly increase that cost. In many cases the cost can be over $20,000. Our prices for invisible fencing is going to be less than 50% of that. When you purchase our hidden dog fence we do the back yard AND the front yard for the same price 99.9% of the time! That's right! We can also secure your front yard, to protect your dog from running out the front door or garage door, and running out into the road. That is nearly impossible to do with chain link or conventional fencing.

If you mow your own lawn get ready for a headache.  Mowing, weed whacking, trimming the grass, etc. is going to be quite the chore when chain link or other styles of fences are installed in a yard. Between professional installation and a maintenance free wired setup, you won't waste anytime with upkeep when it comes to our system.  Our dog fence is installed securely underground and the wire needs no maintenance.  In other words, no obstructions between you and mowing your lawn perfectly.

Dogs are resourceful.  Where there is a will (to escape) there is a way.  Jumping over or digging under many types of conventional fences (like ones made of vinyl) is commonplace with dogs.  Even if they don't escape you now have a major maintenance issue on your hand every time your dog tears up your landscaping trying to escape from the big hunk of metal surrounding your yard. When it comes to an electronic fence,  there is no leaping over it or tunneling under it. It is underground and invisible, so there.  Your dog will absolutely stay in the yard with an escape-free system like this.

Also, if you have a traditional style above-ground fence with entry ways like gates then you stand the risk of leaving that gate open by accident and thus leaving a wide open "escape route" for you dog.  With an underground electronic fence there is no more "forgetting to close the gate" problem that can continue to arise from family members with "short term memory problems" ;)

No permit needed, no association approval needed (most cases) and no issue with the city or towns for our underground invisible fencing.

How do Wireless Dog Fences Compare To Wired Dog Fences or invisible fencing ®?

Simply put, you are getting a much more reliable system with our underground  electric dog fence.  Wireless systems are bunk.  They are considered to be the most expensive way to fail on keeping your pet safe. The quality and reliability of wireless pet containment is just bad. Interference, random shocking collars, inconsistent boundaries and dogs running away is in our opinion, a big failure. Wireless technology for pet fencing is still unreliable.

Compatibility with a yard style is another "plus" for underground dog fences but a "minus" for wireless dog fences. Wireless pet containment systems creat a circle. That's it, just a circle. In many cases, the circle allows the dog into the neighbor yards but not to their own back yard. The corners of the backyard are fully cut off from the circular boundary on wireless dog fences. Very few yards are circular. With our invisible fence wired systems are customise the the shape of your yard. We maximize the space that you want your dog to have.

A wireless dog fence works like this: An invisible circular boundary in the form of a perfect circle is created around a central power unit (transmitting station). Circular landscapes don't seem to be common so this is useless when it comes to matching an electronic dog fence to your landscape.  Straight edges at multiple angles need to be taken into consideration when thinking about installing an electric invisible dog fence to an area outside of a person’s home.  This is yet another way wireless dog fences fail.

Inconsistent boundaries with random, unreliable signal fluctuations is what you get with a wireless dog fence. A wireless dog fence system's signal can interfere with other electrical signals such as microwaves and radios. This can confuse the dog creating a more difficult training session.  Our underground dog fence has a strong signal that does not interfere with any other signal or obstacle in and around your home.

Here are three reasons why someone would want to avoid a wireless dog containment fence setup:  Large collars that are uncomfortable on a dog , corrections (shock) that can't be adjusted, and batteries with short life spans.  Our collars are comfortable, the corrections are adjustable (for all sizes of dogs) and our batteries keep on going.

So, what is the reason to purchase a wireless dog fence? Why are these inefficient systems that can harm your dog even available on the market? They are cheap.  That’s it.  Here at Hidden Pet Fence we do not believe in using wireless dog systems for the reasons mentioned. 

Underground dog fences (in-ground) are the choice dog fence type for most dog owners and dog lovers.  With a boundary wire, our fence comes in customize forms meeting your restriction needs; A humane and safe way to contain your dog.  The first warning is just beeps that will help condition your dog to be mindful of the system.  As the dog gets closer to the boundary limit, a correction (shock).

An underground dog fence signal is strong and constant without interference from any other signals that may be coming from a home’s appliances such as the microwave, mobile phones, etc.  Wireless dog fences are notorious for malfunctioning do to these home appliance signals.  Even certain structures made of metal (refrigerators, water heaters, siding, etc.) can disrupt a wireless dog fence’s signal but not an underground dog fence which keeps a strong and stable signal regardless of the surrounding obstructions.

Underground dog fences are reliable and wireless dog fences are not reliable, they’re just cheap that’s all.

When it comes to purchasing a dog fence that is invisible it’s best to go with an in-ground system.  Thinking about using a wireless dog fence because of cost concerns? In that case, you are probably better off just building a picket fence around your property instead.  That will save you money and do a better job than a wireless fencing system.

If you want a quality hidden pet containment system then go with our underground electric dog fence.
