How DogWatch® Protects Your Home

DogWatch® is the original brand of Hidden Pet Fence that installs External Lightning Protection, designed to protect your home.

Lightning is the most violent and random force on the earth. If it strikes the ground anywhere near your property the energy will naturally attract to the copper (in-ground) fence wire. When it does, the lightning will follow along the wire to the location where it enters your home. If effective External Lightning Protection is not installed at this location to divert the Lightning back into the earth (i.e. grounding), it will proceed into your home electrical system and damage it.

 

Other brands of Hidden Pet Fencing "claim" to offer Lightning Protection as part of their solution. What the smart buyer should know is that it's easy to state this claim, but quite another matter to delivery it.  Don't be misled...

External Lightning Protection requires a commercial grade Surge Protector to be mounted on the outside surface of your home. This device serves as the basis of the protection. Without it, there is NO Lightning Protection...

 

The DogWatch® Surge Protector is a "junction box" that connects together the Boundary Wire, the Fence-System Wiring, and the Grounding Rod.  If these electrical connections are not made outside of your home, it is NOT properly protected..

 

DogWatch® Hidden Pet Fence drives eight feet of galvanized steel into the ground to protect your home. If a proper Grounding Rod(s) is not installed, the fence is not grounded and there is NO Lightning Protection..

 

If you've been told that External Lightning Protection is an outdated, less effective way to protect your home, please consider your own home electrical wiring...

You may not be aware of it, but your (modern and up-to-date) home electrical system is grounded Externally via one or more Grounding Rods.  When your home was constructed Grounding Rod(s) were installed as part of the overall electrical system in order to protect it from possible damage due to power surges.  Regardless of the age of your home it's still done this way today.  As it turns out, there is no "better" technology available that delivers this protection other than good, old fashioned (external) Grounding Rods.  If there was, the modern-day building industry would certainly be taking advantage of it.

DogWatch® will ground your Hidden Fence in a manner consistent with how professional builders protect homes today; Externally.  Any other approach to this protection is an unsafe shortcut.  Internal surge arrestors or similar electronics simply CANNOT protect your home against the worst that mother nature can dish out.  This is why you won't find a home in Atlanta where an internal device was installed in place of an external Grounding Rod.
