How it works.

Beyond bells and whistles.

At Invisible Fence® Brand, we’re not just passionate about technology. We’re passionate about pets. That’s why you’ll find traditional, tried-and-true solutions, as well as innovations that are (literally) out of this world. They all work together not just to improve the way you live with your pet, but also to change it — for good.

Under the hood.

Invisible Fence systems 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 systems include professional installation and expert pet training. So, whether your pet is the outdoorsy type, a couch potato, or somewhere in between, Invisible Fence has solutions to match. Here’s how it all comes together.

    The sum of their parts.

    Invisible Fence Radio Control Panel
    Radio Frequencies.

    Invisible Fence 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.

    Radio Fence Cable

    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.

Why does it work so well?

In a word: Training. After all, the most sophisticated technology in the world is of no value if your dog or cat doesn’t understand how to use it! That’s why Invisible Fence created our Perfect Start™ Plus Training—the only scientifically-based pet training protocol approved by leading animal behaviorists.

  • Will it work on my pet? Big, little, young and old?

  • How does an Invisible Fence® Brand system work outdoors?
    Very simply, a wire is installed around the perimeter of your property, establishing your pet's Invisible Boundary®. A transmitter, usually placed in your basement or garage, sends a radio signal along the wire. The radio signal is picked up by your pet's Computer Collar® Receiver, which emits a warning sound when your pet approaches the Invisible Boundary®. Proper training is critical to ensure that your pet understands and stays within the established boundaries. During the training process, your professional Pet Trainer will introduce the customized static correction to your pet which reinforces the boundaries of your property and tells your pet clearly where they can and cannot go. Contact your local Invisible Fence® Brand professional for more information.
  • Will it hurt my pet? What does the static correction feel like?
    No. The correction from a Computer Collar® Receiver may be uncomfortable and startling to your pet, but it will not hurt them. Many pets only feel the correction once or twice and don't challenge the system afterwards. It is important to note that we have thousands of different customizable corrections and the correction used is based on the personality of your pet, not the size or breed. The correction from a Computer Collar® Receiver is similar to the sensation you feel when you run your hand across a TV screen or when you walk across a carpet and touch a metal doorknob. The sensation momentarily surprises you and gets your attention.
  • Does the Invisible Fence® Brand system work for cats?
    Yes! Cats can be successfully trained to use the Invisible Fence® Brand system, both outdoors and indoors. Our featherweight MicroLite® Computer Collar® Receiver is the smallest and most advanced collar available. Weighing in at just one ounce, it’s easily worn by cats.
  • How big is the Computer Collar® Receiver?
    Our MicroLite® Computer Collar® unit is so small it weighs ONLY 1 ounce! Measurements are approximately 1.75" wide x 1" tall x 1" deep.
  • Can an Invisible Fence® Brand system be used with a pregnant or nursing dog/cat?
    Yes, your Invisible Fence® Brand solution is completely safe to use with pregnant and nursing pets. In more than 40 years we have found no evidence that suggests an Invisible Fence® Brand system produces detrimental effects for a pregnant pet. We have had veterinary reports of many pregnant pets, pets in season, and pets conceiving while on the Invisible Fence® Brand system. In the best interest of the pet, we will always advise that each owner check with their veterinarian if they have concerns regarding containment.
