How It Works

Hidden Fence Central Coast & Hunter offers the DogWatch Hidden Fence brand dog Containment Systems, either fully installed or in DIY kit form. Only Hidden Fence uses a Patented “Safelink FM/DM digital signal” that’s transmitted through a tough polyethylene coated copper boundary wire installed around your property, below ground level or on a fence line. A lightweight, waterproof dog fence receiver collar is worn by your pet and picks up this harmless radio signal.


When your pet gets close to the desired boundary (usually within 300mm – 2m of the wire), an audible warning tone reminds your pet not to cross the boundary. If the warning is ignored, which is rare after training, the collar emits a customised stimulation (electrical stimulation or ES ) and prevents your pet from crossing.


After the hidden dog fence is installed, the dog is then introduced to the dog fencing system. Through operant conditioning principles and clear instruction, your dog becomes well aware of the location of his new boundary fence, and receives reward when he avoids it. Hidden Fence will even train highly prey driven dogs using various target sources throughout the dog training if needed.

Our dog containment systems are the only electronic dog fence available with UL Approved Internal and External lightning and surge protection.

The Safelink FM/DM signal also provides industry leading reception from the transmitter to the receiver collar, the exceptional reaction time of 1/8th of a second Maximises the understanding your pet will recognise its boundary when approaching. DogWatch Hidden Fence receivers have the fastest and most accurate reception in the industry.

Hidden Fence offers the only internationally supported professional grade system available in Australia. Hidden Fence PT4 and Smart Fence PT5 Dog Containment Fencing systems have a Lifetime Equipment Replacement Warranty on the electronics!
