If you are having trouble keeping your dog in the yard then this could be the product for you. Thousands of people live near busy roads, open woodland and other dangerous places where a dog could be hurt should it be out on its own. These same people often cannot afford to get their yards fenced or don't have the permission, so what can they do to keep their pets safe from harm? Dogtek claims to be the answer.
Do the customers like this product?
Most customers were happy with the Dogtek fence system however there have been some qualms. One customer pointed out that their dog had been shocked in the house because of radio interference while another said that their dog had been too scared to go out into the garden after getting a correction shock. Most customers though have had no problems with this system and have praised the build quality as one of its many great features.
You can see the quality of the Dogtek system as soon as you open the box. The transmitter is made of black glossy plastic (not the cheap white plastic many other companies opt into using). The collar is light weight, simple and easy to introduce your dog. It’s refreshing to see a dog fencing system that has had the design thought about and not just thrown together.
The fencing system includes everything you need to set it up for one dog, though you can add an unlimited amount of pets by purchasing more collars. You get an ample amount of wire (500 feet) on a sturdy spool with a thick plastic protective coat, which prevents damage to the wire.
You also get plenty of flag markers (50) which are used to teach your dog its new boundaries. This is more than enough to mark out in the biggest of yards. So you don’t have to worry about buying anything else to go with this kit, as it gives you more than enough of everything.
What are the pros of this dog fence?
- Plenty of wire included
You will have more than enough wire to fence your yard, so you don’t need to worry about buying extras.
- Plenty of markers included
You get enough markers to clearly mark out your dog’s new boundaries, making it easier to train them.
- Unlimited pets function
You won’t have to buy a new system if your family grows, as you can add an unlimited amount of collars to this system. The collars are readily available to buy online and are a fraction of the cost of buying a whole new fencing system.
- Fully water proof
The fencing system and collar is fully water proof and can be used in snow and ice conditions, this means you never need to worry about your dog not being safe.
- Adjustable boundaries settings
You can adjust both the correction zone and the warning zone separately. This means that you can make the warning zone big while the correction zone only needs to be small.
- Batteries included
You get one battery included that is meant to last up to 6 months. This is a nice added touch because the last thing you want to do, when your all set up is run to the store for batteries.
What are its cons?
- Radio signal interference
The collar can have radio signal interference from electronic appliances, which means your dog could get a shock while inside.
The Dogtek fence system is one of the best on the market. It’s at a budget price while holding many of the premium fencing systems to shame, with its excellent build quality and usability. The Dogtek system would have got full marks if it wasn’t for the radio interference, however it still scores very highly at 4.4/5.
