Product Description

The DogWatch ® Hidden Fence DIY dog fence system commands a similar patented FM operating system to the Hidden Fence brand Professional units.

This software completely minimizes unintentional activation of the pet collar by outside sources (unlike cheap dog fence products sold on on-line auction sites like eBay® and Gumtree®, which are notorious for, and will activate arbitrarily).

The 1200FMD DIY kit is secure enough…it’s the only system recommended when being installed along a chain link or colorbond® fence, even under power lines!! This exclusive offer is a welcomed addition to a DIY dog fence market with so many holes to fill. 


The DIY electric dog fence by DogWatch ® DIY dog fence is engineered to suit ANY breed. Whether your pet has long dense fur like a Husky, or ultra short fur like a Staffy…this system has all the features to contain that breed safely. No other containment system on the market has as many programmable and safety options than the DogWatch ® electric dog fence product.

This particular Hidden Fence system is the most used system when replacing other brands in the field that have failed to contain a dog safely. The current Warranty rate on this product is less than 1%. We almost never see the electronics returned due to operational issues in the field.

See below for exclusive features only offered by DogWatch Hidden Fence systems:

Safelink® FM DM Digital Signal – Patented and EXCLUSIVE
A coded FM DM digital signal insures to minimise unintentionally correct your pet, unlike all other AM DM receivers (DIY) which can activate  without warning and inconsistently around the boundary.

External/Internal Surge and Lightning Protection – EXCLUSIVE
Best possible protection from surges for your investment.

Boundary Control Technology – EXCLUSIVE
System can be programmed in multiple ways to solidify the signal throughout the entire boundary. Speed of the pet, behaviour and highly instinctual breeds can be controlled through the programming, which maintains training integrity.

5-Training and Stimulation levels
Subtle enough for the tiniest breed, or strong enough for the toughest most robust dog; Hidden Fence receivers are engineered to offer the consumer the most flexibility on the market for SAFELY containing their pet.

Individually Programmable Collars
Hidden Fence receivers are fully programmable, so no need for a “small dog” or “stubborn dog” receiver collar. You can have an unlimited number of dog fence collars on a hidden fence system…all programmed individually!! Due to the individual programming, you never have to worry about dog fence collars that automatically adjust the level. This is never advisable, as automatic dog fence collars only adjust based on distance, not on the dogs overall behaviour on the system.  dog-fence-collar-dogwatch
