DogWatch® Hidden Fence System Tips

On Dogs with sensitive skin do not leave the receiver on your pet’s neck for more than 12 hours at a time. Doing so can result in Necrosis which is the breaking down of skin cells (like bed sores) and is caused by constant rubbing.

If you do notice sores developing, put Neosporin on the affected area, clean the metal prongs with rubbing alcohol and place the receiver in a different position on your pet’s neck.

If you forget to put your pet’s receiver on before letting him/her outside do not panic. If your pet has been trained, most dogs will take some time before he/she tries to cross the boundary. However, do not make a habit of leaving the collar off as your pet will eventually forget the training without the receiver on to reinforce it.

If your pet is not responding to the shock, the first thing to check is the tightness of the collar. A loose collar can result in the inability of your pet to feel the correction. Secondly, check to see if the correction level has been changed. Use the magnet on the end of your battery tester to adjust the level of correction on your pet’s receiver. One long beep means the correction has been turned off and your pet will only receive an audible tone. Also, check to see that the transmitter outlet plug into is still powered. Finally, check to see when the last time you replaced your receiver’s battery. You could have a dead battery.

If you are going to have yard work done and do not recall where your wire is buried, give DogWatch of Metro Detroit a call and we can come out to mark your wire. This is significantly less expensive than having to repair and replace your broken wire.

If you have a broken wire and require service, please call and let us know immediately. DogWatch of Metro Detroit has equipment to locate and repair broken wire. The longer you go without repairing the wire, the greater the odds are that your pet may run through his/her boundary.

If you have a broken wire and know where it is, you may want to attempt to repair it yourself. If doing so, please keep in mind that in Michigan, the ground expands and contracts during hot and cold weather and wet and dry weather. With this in mind make sure the wire is spliced properly and that no moisture can reach the exposed copper as this will result in corrosion and further complicate the situation.  Also, only use direct burial approved wire splice connectors.
