General Pet Fencing FAQ’s
Is Pet Stop of Western PA associated with Invisible Fence®, Petsafe®, Dogwatch®, DogGuard® or any other brand of electronic, underground pet fencing other than Pet Stop®?
No. Pet Stop of Western PA is a licensed Pet Stop dealer and only provides installations and warranties on Pet Stop® products. We can provide independent maintenance service on Invisible Fence® and other fencing brands though.
Do you have indoor electric pet fencing solutions?
Yes, we do. The RoomWizard™ fence system allows you to create pet-free zones in your home ranging from entire rooms to just a few square feet – it also works flawlessly with our outdoor pet fencing system.
How are your systems different from Invisible Fence® and other electric pet fencing brands?
Pet Stop® systems are the ONLY electric pet fencing systems designed, tested, and manufactured in the USA, and that means real quality. Pet Stop® products are also the most technologically advanced available on the market.
Pet Fence Training FAQ’s
How old or big must my pet be to be trained to the fence?
Your pet should be well adjusted to its home environment before you start training. We recommend that your pet be at least eight weeks old, but there are no minimum or maximum size limitations.
Will the correction hurt or harm my pet?
The correction is safe, harmless and humane. It is just effective enough to STARTLE the dog. The correction produces less energy than that produced by a static shock from carpeting.
How long does it usually take to train pets to the fence?
Typically, training takes about 2 weeks, but each pet is different. Our GentleSteps™ training technique allows us to customize your pet’s training experience to fit their personality, and this in turn allows your pet to learn their new boundaries faster.
Can I train a cat to the fence?
Yes, you can. Our indoor pet containment solutions are particularly useful in providing you with cat-free zones in your home.
Electric Pet Fencing Products FAQ’s
How long do the batteries normally last?
Battery life is determined by how often your pet tests their fence boundaries. Most batteries last from three months to a year.
How will I know when the batteries need to be replaced?
Your pet’s receiver collar comes equipped with our Flash Alert low battery indicator – allowing you to switch the batteries out before the they completely run out.
