With almost any new feature of your home, you’ve got two options for installing it: DIY or professionally installed with training.

This is usually the part where your partner starts going on about how you should never DIY this or never DIY that and that it’s too risky and blah blah blah.

But we believe in good, ol’ Aussie handiwork which is why we offer several DIY options for our customers!

That being said, a professional installation will almost always be the most effective and stress-free route, especially as our installations come with Hidden Fence dog training. That’s why we’ve outlined everything you need to know in this guide, explaining whether DIY or professional installation is the best option for your Hidden Fence.

DIY installations

Hidden Fence Central Coast and Hunter sell DIY Kit options for our Hidden Fences. If you’re pretty handy and are willing to take on the challenge, they’re a great option.

Perks of DIY installations

DIY kits are great for several reasons:

  • Cheaper price
    DIY fence kits are cheaper than getting in a professional to install your Hidden Fence, provided it’s all installed correctly.

Drawbacks of DIY installations

Keep in mind the drawbacks of DIY installations:

  • Risk of becoming more expensive
    If your DIY kit isn’t properly installed, you could risk paying more for when a professional has to come and re-install it. That’s why we only suggest taking on DIY if you’re completely comfortable with it and have the right tools and equipment.
  • No professional dog training
    One of the big disadvantages of DIY is that you also have to train your dog yourself, rather than having a professional help train him or her with you. We highly suggest getting professional training through Hidden Fence Central Coast and Hunter even if you choose to install the fence yourself, as there’s a lot riding on your dog’s ability to understand the fence.

Perks of professional installation

Professional installation by the team at Hidden Fence Central Coaster and Hunter is often the best option:

  • Effective installation
    You don’t have to think twice when a professional installs your Hidden Fence for you; rest assured, your Hidden Fence will be set up properly and effectively. We have a custom build installation machine that digs a narrow trench about as wide as your thumb and buries the dog wire cable approximately 100mm underground as it goes! If you are on acreage this couldn’t be easier.
  • Stress-free
    DIY can be stressful for many people. If you’ve ever tried to follow a DIY YouTube video and got absolutely nowhere with it, we don’t blame you!  For example have  you thought how you will get the dog wire cable across your driveway? It’s always a risk with DIY projects that you don’t have the right tools.
  • Dog training included
    When you choose a professional installation through Hidden Fence Central Coast and Hunter, you and your dog will receive training on understanding the fence. We’ve established methods of training any dog, big or small, old or young, to understand its new boundaries.

Cons of professional installation:

  • More expensive
    Professional installation has a higher upfront cost, but hey – perhaps it’s worth it, not only for the peace of mind it’s done right but the job will actually get done!

Whether you’re looking at a DIY kit or a professional installation, we’ve got both options ready to go for your Hidden Fence. Hidden Fence Central Coast and Hunter installs reliable invisible fences across the region, using quality gear from DogWatch Hidden Fences. We also professionally train your dog/s to avoid the boundaries so that they’re well-adjusted to their new fence.
