If you are like many pet owners, you may be considering purchasing an in-ground fencing system in order to keep your four-legged pets safe. Innotek is the only company to offer in-ground fencing and remote training systems all in one package, using one collar. If you are in the market for a fencing system for your dog, consider the Innotek IUC-5100. Keep your pet safe, in your yard, and out of danger from nearby streets.
Do the customers like this product?
More often than not, consumers who purchased the Innotek IUC-5100 are very happy with their in-ground fencing. Yes, it may have taken a while to set up the system properly, but they are ecstatic about the collar indicator that lets them know when the battery is getting low, and the fact that they can train at home or away from home with the same system. Additionally, most consumers indicate they would recommend this system to others.
What are the pros of this dog fence?
- Dual Collar
The comfortable UltraSmart collar does double duty, both as a containment collar and as a remote training collar. Train in the yard or outside the property. This is especially useful for people who take their dogs to parks, to other people’s houses for visits, or on vacation with them.
The training features seven levels of stimulation that you can choose. You can do tone-only training or a combination of tones and stimulation shocks. Tones are good for letting your dog know he is getting too close to his boundary and are issued before a shock. Tones are also helpful to use once your dog is trained at home and you take the dog to a park or someone else’s house. Because your dog knows the tone means he is getting close to his boundaries, he will likely be better behaved when out and about.
- Waterproof Collar/Transmitter
The collar and the transmitter are waterproof and can remain working, even after being submerged in water. The system operates on rechargeable lithium batteries, which are fast-charging and have a long life.
- Amazing Collar Features
Your dog’s collar features an on-board system check. The collar alerts you to potential problems. Whenever you recharge your batteries, the collar automatically performs a check to make sure everything is operating properly. A green light means everything is working well, and a flashing red light indicates there is a problem with the collar.
There is another feature of the collar that sets Innotek above the rest – the right collar fit indicator. If the collar is too loose, or too tight, your dog won’t be comfortable, and the collar will not work properly. This smart collar emits a brief audible click to let you know the collar is on correctly and is functioning properly.
There is a “Ready Test” function on the collar that monitors battery levels. Green means the battery is more than half way charged, yellow means the battery is less than half way charged, and red means the collar needs charged at your next opportunity.
What are its cons?
- Cumbersome Wire Installation
Many customers who purchased this system indicated it takes a very long time to properly install the wires into the ground, sometimes taking more than two days, even when installed by professionals.
- Warranty Issues
If you do not buy this product from an authorized dealer, your warranty will not be honored. For example, several customers were livid that they bought this product from Amazon, had an issue with the collar or remote, and couldn’t use their warranty. They were told the item wasn’t purchased at one of Innotek’s authorized dealers.
It appears that this fencing system is one that is desirable. Although a few people had issues with the system, that is to be expected. Most consumers like all of the features of the Innotek IUC-5100 and would recommend the system to others. They are secure in feeling that their pets are safe are like the fact that they can use the same system when away from home.
