Is Hope’s Dog Fencing associated with Invisible Fence®, Petsafe®, Innotek®, Dogwatch®, Dog Guard® or ANY other electric pet fencing brand other than Pet Stop®?
No, Hope’s Pet Fencing is an authorized Pet Stop® dealer. We sell, install, and honor warranties on Pet Stop® products only. However, we may provide independent service on brands such as Invisible Fence®, and we also sell Invisible Fence® compatible batteries.
What makes Pet Stop® different from other competitors?
Pet Stop is the ONLY brand in the industry that hasn’t outsourced – all of our products are 100% made in the USA. This means that you’re guaranteed a product that is made with the best materials available and is truly built to last. In addition, all of our products are backed by our unmatched quality guarantee.
We’re also the only brand to offer the revolutionary pet fence training technique, GentleSteps™. With a 99.6% successful containment rating, it’s the highest in the country…proof that your pet really is in the most capable of hands with Hope’s Dog Fencing and Pet Stop.
Do you have indoor pet containment systems as well?
Yes we do! Our indoor pet fences can keep entire rooms pet free, or we can pinpoint sections down to just a few feet – keep Spot away from the garbage can, or Fluffy off of your great-grandmother’s antique sofa. Our indoor systems are designed to work flawlessly with our outdoor fencing systems.
How old or big must my pet be to be trained to the fence?
We recommend that your pet be at least 8 weeks of age before training begins, and they should also be familiar and comfortable with their environment. We train dogs of all breeds and sizes to the fence – there is no limit.
Will the correction hurt my pet?
No – our products are designed to be extremely humane and pet-friendly. The correction levels we use produce an amount of energy comparable to a carpet’s static shock. It’s just enough to startle your pet, but not enough to harm them.
How long will it take to train my dog to the new fence?
Most pets are trained within a couple of weeks, though since every pet is unique, some may take a little more time and some may take less. Our pet fencing experts will customize the products and training experience to best suit your pet’s individual needs and maximize fence effectiveness.
Can I use an electronic underground fence for my aggressive dog?
No, we will not install an underground fence unless it is going to be used in combination with an already-existing wooden or chain-link fence. We do not recommend the use of corrections on aggressive dogs and recommend talking with your vet for alternative training method options.
Are your products compatible with other systems?
Yes, our products can be used with most other electric pet fence brands, including Invisible Fence® systems.
Are your products water resistant?
All Pet Stop receiver collars are designed to be resistant to moisture, so it’s fine to leave them on when you give your pet a bath or if they’re playing in the rain.
How long do the batteries last?
Battery life is dependent on how often your dog tests the boundaries – most batteries last from 3 months to a year. When the battery is running low, the Flash Alert® will let you know so you can change the batteries out before they die completely.
