How Invisible Fence® Systems Work

How Invisible Fence® Systems Work

Under the Hood

Invisible Fence® solutions are designed to work together—simply and seamlessly. With the same Computer Collar® Receiver, your pet can have safe yard boundaries, access our secure pet door, and learn better behaviors both indoors and out. Plus, all Invisible Fence® solutions include professional installation and expert pet training. So, whether your pet is the outdoorsy type, a couch potato, or somewhere in between, Invisible Fence® Brand has solutions to match. Here’s how it all comes together.

How it worksHow it works

How Does Invisible Fence® Technology Work

Radio Frequencies.

Invisible Fence® Brand uses digital radio frequencies to operate your system. It’s just like tuning in to your favorite satellite radio station. Digital signals are stronger and more reliable than AM/FM analog signals. So, your system stays up and running.

Control Panel.

The Control Panel broadcasts the signal, much like a radio station. It’s usually installed in a central but discreet location, like your garage.


The digital radio signal from the Control Panel travels along an insulated cable buried around your property.

Signal Field

A signal field is created on all sides of the buried cable, and represents your pet’s protective boundary. It’s created by the Control Panel, and is detected by your pet’s Computer Collar Receiver.

Computer Collar® Receiver

Your pet wears the Computer Collar Receiver, which acts like a radio, picking up the digital signal transmitted by the Control Panel.

Static Correction

When your pet’s Computer Collar Receiver crosses into the signal field, it first provides an audible warning tone, then provides a gentle static correction that reminds him he’s reached the limits of his boundary. The level of correction is customized to your pet, ensuring it stays at the right level. It’s a completely safe and effective way to reinforce your pet’s training.

Boundary Flags.

These little white flags help your pet remember the location of their boundary. As your pet’s behavior adapts, she’ll be able to recall the boundary without needing a visual cue.

3 Steps to Freedom

A safer, happier, more independent pet. An easier life for you. All in three simple steps. It all starts when you click or call to schedule an appointment with your neighborhood Invisible Fence® dealer.

In-Home Consultation

Every pet (and every family) is different. That’s why we’ll find a convenient time that works with your schedule to meet your pets, take a look at your property and talk about your needs. And together, we’ll choose an affordable, effective solution to match.

Professional Installation

Invisible Fence® installation experts get your new system up and running in no time — the first time! Once it’s installed, your neighbors won’t see a single difference in your landscaping or property. And, if you ever have questions or need help, your local experts are there for you.

Customized Training

Here’s where the magic really happens! Invisible Fence® certified pet trainers get to know your pet. And they use our systematic, gentle training approach that’s approved by veterinarians and animal behaviorists, customizing it specifically to your pet’s personality, breed and situation. The result? A better-behaved pet that truly understands his boundaries.

We had immediate success with the training. We love the freedom of just letting them out in our yard with no worries.

I never thought the fence would work for Luke, Lenny and Buddy. Now, I tell everyone Invisible Fence is the real deal. These three stay in the yard even when the school bus unloads.

I certainly made a big mistake trying another electronic containment system. Now that I switched to Invisible Fence, I am very satisfied and will continue to highly recommend Invisible Fence to my clients.

One house and three dogs later, Invisible Fence is still the best solution for keeping my dogs safe and healthy. They can run free in the yard and get the exercise they need to stay healthy and strong.
