✅ Top #1 Pick: Extreme Dog Fence (Professional)
Extreme Premium Dog Fence is meant for big yards — collar transmitter can cover 10-25 acres
Most popular model is designed for 1 dog (but can be upgraded to 5 collars)
The Extreme Dog kit comes w/ a waterproof transmitter — you can choose from 7 different zap settings. (lowest setting = best for training)
A nice benefit is the Wire Check System which works in the rain or snow.
It’s one of the most expensive fences on my list but has lots of strong buyer reviews — many love the wiring quality + easy installation.
Wireless Combo Electric Fence is the most affordable on my list + comes w/ 2 receiver collars.
Includes rechargeable training collars — no need to worry about changing batteries!
Model comes w/ 492 ft. of wire + 10 boundary width settings.
What I like is that the collar will start beeping as your dog nears edge + if crossed, it will trigger a light harmless static shock.
PetSafe YardMax Fence the receivers are waterproof + rechargeable collar (option of 5 different correction levels)
It comes w/ 500 ft. of 20-gauge wire — there’s a few options to upgrade size, but this size has the most reviews.
There’s some mixed buyer reviews — some say it’s very easy to install, others had some difficulty. Once installed it creates a solid boundary (including driveways).
Extreme Basic Dog Fence is more affordable + comes w/ 500 ft. of wire (half an acre of land) – option to expand to up to 6 acres.
2nd Gen. model has multiple warning zones — using the settings, you can control the warning zones w/ 1-5 static signals + 6-7 progressive alerts.
Includes 20-gauge copper wire which can be buried 2-3 inches.
Buyers say it performs well + love the receiver’s long battery life.
SportDOG has an advanced anti-linger feature — if approaching the boundary, the receiver will begin slowly beeping (helps prevent your dog from crossing over)
Convenient indicator alerts you when to replace the receiver’s battery.
Waterproof collar comes w/ 4 correction settings and 1000 ft. of 20-gauge wire.
Fence system is very dependable in heavy rain, snow or extreme heat — Surge protection system prevents it from being damaged by lightning.
High customer satisfaction rating + one of the more affordable electric dog fences on my list.
Extreme Max Grade comes w/ 1000 ft. of 16-gauge wire. (which includes a surge protector)
Like other extreme electric dog fences, this model can be expanded to up to 4 acres of coverage. Additional collar receivers can be secured to as many as 1-5 dogs.
It has lots of positive buyer reviews — many note how easy it is to install!
Designed to secure ¾ of an acre, the PetSafe is portable — take it w/ you camping and easily install if you move homes.
Petsafe comes w/ rechargeable collar (charges in 2-3 hours) + provides up to 3 weeks of battery life.
Buyers say it’s easy to install + works well with both large or small homes.
