General questions.

  • Is it safe?
    Yes, an Invisible Fence® Brand system is safe and humane. It is highly recommended by veterinarians, professional dog trainers, behaviorists and other pet experts.
  • Will it work on my pet? Big, little, young and old?
    Yes! Dogs and cats of all sizes, breeds, ages, and temperaments have successfully been trained on the Invisible Fence® Brand system. Our featherweight MicroLite Computer Collar® Receiver is the smallest and most advanced collar available. Weighing in at just one ounce, it’s easily worn by even the smallest dog breeds, including Yorkshire Terriers, Pekingese, Dachshunds, Chihuahuas and Pomeranians, as well as cats.
  • How much does it cost?

    Every dog, family and property is unique, which is why we customize every system to meet your specific needs. Size of property, type of equipment purchased, number of professional training sessions purchased and number of pets on the system are all factors that must be considered when determining the final price.

    We’ll help you determine a solution that will fit your needs and your budget. To get an exact price, schedule a FREE, no-obligation, consultation in the convenience of your home by calling us at 866-804-1250 or click here to schedule online.

  • How does an Invisible Fence® Brand system work outdoors?
    Very simply, a wire is installed around the perimeter of your property, establishing your pet's Invisible Boundary®. A transmitter, usually placed in your basement or garage, sends a radio signal along the wire. The radio signal is picked up by your pet's Computer Collar® Receiver, which emits a warning sound when your pet approaches the Invisible Boundary®. Proper training is critical to ensure that your pet understands and stays within the established boundaries. During the training process, your professional Pet Trainer will introduce the customized static correction to your pet which reinforces the boundaries of your property and tells your pet clearly where they can and cannot go. Contact your local Invisible Fence® Brand professional for more information.
  • Will it hurt my pet? What does the static correction feel like?
    No. The correction from a Computer Collar® Receiver may be uncomfortable and startling to your pet, but it will not hurt them. Many pets only feel the correction once or twice and don't challenge the system afterwards. It is important to note that we have thousands of different customizable corrections and the correction used is based on the personality of your pet, not the size or breed. The correction from a Computer Collar® Receiver is similar to the sensation you feel when you run your hand across a TV screen or when you walk across a carpet and touch a metal doorknob. The sensation momentarily surprises you and gets your attention.
  • Does the Invisible Fence® Brand system work for cats?
    Yes! Cats can be successfully trained to use the Invisible Fence® Brand system, both outdoors and indoors. Our featherweight MicroLite® Computer Collar® Receiver is the smallest and most advanced collar available. Weighing in at just one ounce, it’s easily worn by cats.
  • How big is the Computer Collar® Receiver?
    Our MicroLite® Computer Collar® unit is so small it weighs ONLY 1 ounce! Measurements are approximately 1.75" wide x 1" tall x 1" deep.
  • Can an Invisible Fence® Brand system be used with a pregnant or nursing dog/cat?
    Yes, your Invisible Fence® Brand solution is completely safe to use with pregnant and nursing pets. In more than 40 years we have found no evidence that suggests an Invisible Fence® Brand system produces detrimental effects for a pregnant pet. We have had veterinary reports of many pregnant pets, pets in season, and pets conceiving while on the Invisible Fence® Brand system. In the best interest of the pet, we will always advise that each owner check with their veterinarian if they have concerns regarding containment.
