Item Information

The SportDOG Brand In-Ground Fence System is a simple and cost-effective alternative to a traditional fence. Safe and effective for all dogs over 10 pounds, the SportDOG Brand In-Ground Fence System's transmitter is powerful enough to cover up to 100 acres of land. Installation is as simple as burying the wire around the perimeter of your yard and plugging in the transmitter. Your dog wears a correction collar that receives a signal from the wire and warns him if he ventures too close to the perimeter. The waterproof collar receiver allows for four adjustable levels of correction plus tone and vibration mode. The system is expandable to include any number of dogs with the purchase of additional collar receivers. Follow the training instructions included with your SportDOG Brand In-Ground Fence System to get your dog acquainted with his new boundaries and he will be staying safely in your yard in no time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sport dog in ground fence I’ve used this system before so it is tried and true. We live on 7 acres and we have fencing around the perimeter. The fencing is suitable for keeping the cows out of our yard but won’t keep our dogs out of the pastures. I didn’t have to bury the wire for the fencing. Once lighting struck close by and damaged the charger. Sport dog replaced it no problem. Great product great customer service!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good product when working The first one I purchased lasted 4 years loved it ! The second not so much lasted 6 months, sent back to company. So we purchased a 3 rd one while 2nd is getting fixed got it back after 2 months lasted just past warranty! Not that happy with lack of quality but better than others!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor performance all around The wire that was provided with this unit is incredibly flimsy. After several failures due to moles in a short period of time, we gave up and just ripped it out. After the second break, the wire break indicator stopped showing breakages and will now always stay on. I bought 18 gauge wire and have not had any issues with breakages. Then last week, the control box decided to cut out completely and our dog was left at home all day without a barrier. Will be contacting sportdog for a replacement, but their Customer Service hours are not 24 hour. Very unhappy customer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love it! I have been super happy with this product! Only negative would be installing it. The collar will beep and vibrate when the dog gets close to the fence. But on my collar it only beeped the first couple weeks then it stopped..not sure why? But overall definitely worth the $$!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great system, poor collars Overall: Great buy, would do it again with some modifications. Pros: I have two dogs and this system has been great in almost every way. The anti-linger feature works great to prevent against the dogs learning the weak spots of the system. My system has been so effective my neighbors even asked about it and purchased one on my recommendation for their two dogs. Cons: The collars are a big large which is to be expected but they also have housings that crack. I was especially careful after the first collar started to crack to make sure I did not over-tighten the screws by any measure and both collars eventually failed. This created a horribly stressful situation with my dogs when the collars started shorting out and shocking my two buddies randomly. Their near perfect initial training took several steps back due to poor designs of the collars and the rubber seals. Overall: At $100 a collar I would expect a bit more quality and not something that would end up failing in a way that it eventually ends up randomly torturing my dogs and stressing them out.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's perfect when it's working I'm a bit torn on this fence. It has caused me a lot of frustration but when it works it is perfect. It took us over a week to install it the first time. Digging and burying the wire was painful and long. When we finally got done, it took less than a week to get my smart, headstrong, pitbull fully trained with very little work. I am a combat veteran and I have been trying to recover from a massive breakdown for almost a year now. My dog is my lifeline. And now that I have him I don't see life without him as a possibility. I am not exaggerating...after being plagued with suicidal thoughts almost daily for several months, my dog has been the only security I have as far as making it through the days. He has extended my life for as long as he lives. So, the fact that this fence can keep my dog safe in our yard is greatest gift (besides him) that I could have ever needed. But after owning it for approximately 6 months the alarm has gone off 3 times. All 3 times, my system passed the loop test. This last time we got fed up because we couldn't find the break and we pulled it out and we are now working on replacing it with thicker wire. It's been out of service for 3 weeks and my dog has been leaving the property as often as I take my eyes off of him. I've called support but they are not more helpful than the manual is. This fence is a life safer when it's working but, man, it's hard to keep it going.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Unit but broke quickly This is a good unit. Plenty of features and works well. My unit started alarming for broken wire after about 9 months. I spent days checking wire (I have about 2,000 feet of wire installed) and splices and even purchased a wire break detector and couldn't find any problems. After some online research I discovered that underground fences in general will sometimes signal this alarm when there isn't a problem when the transmitter is going out. They said to reset switch between high and low and adjust sensitivity dial and many times that would fix the problem. They were right! The alarm stopped and the fence started working again. But only for a day. The next day the entire transmitter went out. The unit has a 2 year warranty (longer than most) but I didn't save my receipt. I called Sport Dog and they quickly ran through the problem and sent out a new unit at no cost. Excellent customer service! The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that the unit did break after a few months which was a hassle. I think compared to other units it's superior.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it We put this fence in for our pit bull mix, so she'd quit roaming the neighborhood. It took one day for her to figure it out, and about two weeks of coaxing for her to want to go outside again. However, it is now working perfectly, to the point that she is in and out like a cat, all day long. We are going to find another rescue soon, so she can have a buddy. I was honestly shocked at the price of a new collar, though. If you're going to charge over 100 dollars, maybe a sturdier strap would be in order. The system itself works fabulous and I could not be more pleased with watching our pupper charge around the yard, knowing exactly where she belongs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product and easy to install We have a 103lb lab and weighed the cost of a fence at upwards of $8k vs $300 for an invisible fence and this fence has turned out to be the best decision financially but also preserved the esthetics of my home. I do wish there were accessories that could be purchased like a remote that could be used for behavior correction.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good product installation was straight forward, just tedious. I wish there was a collar that was nylon with a clasp that I could set for the dog and leave it be. Even if an aftermarket collar to transfer the transmitter to. I understand cutting it to fit, but right now he is still a learning and growing puppy, so I don't want to cut off a bunch of collar yet. there does seem to be a delay upon walking up to the buried wire. I am still quite pleased with the product. I have 3/4 of an acre, I upgraded to heavier wire, using 14 gauge instead of 20.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Five stars all the way Ordered and arrived sooner than promised. Plenty of underground wire. Easy to install and use. Met all my expectations as promised. Have been in use for over 6 months and still no issues. Love the variable settings.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good... My parents bought this system to install around a couple of acres surrounding their house. Installation was as expected - a bit of work to bury the wire just underground. The system connected easily and tested as fully operational. After about a week, though lights indicated full operation, no signal was delivered to the collar and their dog ran through the fence. Tractor Supply replaced the base unit and now all is functioning as expected. Not sure why first into failed so quickly. If you get this system, keep checking it weekly to ensure that it is actually working even when lights indicate so.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy warranty I had a problem with a collar module and I called for warranty. They sent me a new one immediately. It was probably the easiest time I have ever had with a warranty item in my life. The staff was very nice and helpful. The system works great and my dog enjoys running around our 3 acres instead of being tide up. Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic customer service and product I have had multiple under ground fence units in the past, but none as good Sportdog. This unit keeps my 2 gsp's in our 3 acres without any issue until lightning hit it. Luckily it has replaceable fuses! After replacing the fuses my unit still would not power on, called customer service, within five mins my replacement unit was on its way. It was delivered quicker than the 5 days they said it would take to receive the unit, and it was up and working within a few minutes. We love our Sportdog under ground fence, with its 2 year warranty, and the great, quick customer service department!!! I would recommend this unit to anyone looking for a great underground fence unit!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, even better customer service! I can not say enough positive about the sportdog company! The underground fence was very easy to install and the collar has held up much better than anticipated. I have a 2yr old lab/corgi mix with mountains of energy! She never stops, from playing with other dogs to sprints through the woods at night chasing forest critters. The collar has been beat up, scratched, soaked in the rain (she loves mud), covered in dirt and sand when she digs new craters, and it's still kicking! The battery life is amazing as I have almost had an entire year out of the first battery! The best thing about sport dog though has to be their customer service. My first interaction with them unfortunately was right out of the box with a bad transmitter. However, a quick call at 7pm on Saturday July 4th and a warranty replacement was on its way to my house (which arrived by Wednesday of next week.) I will not hesitate to buy from them again and will happily recommend their products to anyone in need of dog training supplies! Thank you sport dog for an awesome product and amazing customer support!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great I purchased this fence after having my german shorthair pointer/lab dog Beau run away for the 4th time. Installation was very time consuming, we used a pick ax to make the shallow trench. Instructions were great and some good tips for training your dog as well. So far so good signal, is consistant and the vibration and sound is perfect for warning before correction. Day one of training he recognizes the flags as danger and the sound. And a couple shoks got him runnin right nack to the yard. Hes a little scared now but its only been one day. Im sure eventually he will understand it well. I would highly reccomend this product. Well worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Money saving, Time saving product After building a new house my options were were a $5000 chain link fence or a in ground fence,for under $300. After much research Sport Dog looked like the best option, I have had it over a year and have not had one problem out of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent fence. Have ad this for 4 yrs now and performs excellent. Never had any problems with this unit. Excellent expansion features, and especially like the ability to use instant shock, instead of the warning first. Great product, and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for underground fence. 100% satisfaction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Purchase After 3 trips to the animal shelter to retrieve my wandering beast I admitted to myself I needed a containment area. I checked with Sportdog about the need to bury the perimeter wire since I lived in the middle of 9 wooded acres and was advised that it would work fine. Initially I was going to install above ground on wooden pickets but decided to just lay wire on the ground and let the leaves cover it up, although it is buried where it crosses my driveway and from the house out to the perimeter. Obviously installation was breeze. I installed 1000 feet of perimeter wire, a little more than 1.5 acres of containment. The system works great and since my dog was trained with a tone trainer there was no learning curve. For the first few days he would immediately return to the porch after venturing to close to the perimeter. He has came back with a yelp a time or two when he tested the bounds. The unit also has a perimeter wire break alarm that works perfectly. I would and do recommend this to anyone looking for a reliable system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product I almost never write reviews, but I really felt this company and product deserve a 5 star glowing review. If you are considering an in ground fence look no further, I owned another popular cheaper in ground fence and there is honestly no comparison in quality. We recently had a lighting storm that I assume took out our fence transmitter and I had no hesitation in going and buying this product again. All the parts and packaging are top quality. The web site is very helpful for troubleshooting and answering any questions you might have. Good work people!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this fence We have 36 acres of land 16 of which has Field fence around it. Having a farm with chickens, goats, and other farm animals, we purchased 2 Anatolian Shepherd Dogs (ASD) to keep them safe. We had been told these dogs are notorious for jumping 5 foot fences and digging craters to get out. This was our solution before the problem started. This fence goes around the entire 16 fenced acres. I upgraded to the heavy duty wire (14g) and attached it to our fence running it through water hose where we drive across it. No problem The dogs have a healthy respect for the shock when it is on high and their collars are fitted properly. Pros: The battery is great. I love that I can run out and buy a 9V put it in and it is good for a LONG time. I don't have to special order or hunt for a battery that is specific to this. Also works with my little dogs collar from Petsafe. Cons: When the fence wire has a break the alarm sounds. We keep our alarm in a detached garage to protect if from the weather. There have been times that there was a break and we did not know until we went to the garage. Our dogs are smart smart and during this time they figured out the collars were not on. They were gone for 3 days. NOT GOOD. I would love a louder alarm or even a system that would alert you on your smart phone. Yes, I would pay more money gladly for this. Those three days took 10 years off my life. Also, would be cool if there was a GPS built into the system... I know I am asking a lot but I would love to have been able to find those two instead of suffering. Just a thought.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If only I had bought it sooner; works fantastic even with my German Shepherd Dog Sadly I lost the lives of my two young shepherds on the road in front of my house before I purchased this system. I have a 40 acre farm and couldn't afford to physically fence it in. I purchased the Sport Dog in ground fence system after being satisfied with my electronic training collar system in the past. I upgraded the underground wire to the 14 ga. wire and fenced approximately 20 acres of my property. I now have 2 German Shepherds who love to chase the large trucks and this fence system prevents them from getting close to the road even at a dead run. I installed it myself and it has been the best investment for the safety of my dogs and the peace of mind for myself. If only I had purchased it sooner, I may have saved the lives of my other dogs. Key point to remember is to keep the collar snug on the dogs neck and to always make them wear the collars. I live in the snowy part of the country and it continued to work without fail through over 5-6 foot of snow depth on top of the ground. Very impressed and recommend the product to all my dog friends. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Impressed, Very happy you couldn't convince me otherwise! Very Impressed, Very happy you couldn't convince me otherwise First, I have had this system for 11 months so far. I live in a townhouse development with my town home being the end unit and backing up to a lot of community land a bird sanctuary and a retention pound. So myself and 2 others neighbors with dogs about the same size 40-60lbs. chipped in and got the system with 2 extra collars and another transmitter because my neighbor who did the ordering was a woman and well I dont know. haha. Guessing about 4-5 acres are blocked in with 1 of the dogs go swimming daily and no problems there. Besides "Paige" (neighbors dog)has gotten smart and learned that she can swim around it and come out on the other side. haha and my wonderful "Gracie Lou" has learned that she can run down on top of my railroad ties that I use landscape boarders. Which we will be fixing both issues very soon. We did have to change a few fuses in one of the transmitters but that was our fault my neighbor had a roof leak on his screen porch and was getting it wet when it rained. Just the other day my other neighbor called about getting one of the boxes replaced because we could not figure out what went wrong with it. He told me they were going to send one out right away. There was a 2 year warranty. WOW great news. keep up the good new yall!! thanks again, Tim Seeton Nate & Vanessa White Joe Jesswein

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I will always have a SportDOG fence now I bought a house on an acre 2 years ago with no fence. Instead of forking over a few thousand to put up a privacy fence, I bought an in-ground fence for a fraction of the cost. The directions are SUPER easy. It took me a full day to install, and 2 spools of wire, but it was well worth it. That was a year and a half ago, and I have had no maintenance issues... not even had to replace the collar battery. It took my 2 year old lab one day to learn how the system works, and he's only ran through the fence one time to see my neighbor. Now he doesn't wear his collar unless I leave for an extended amount of time. I bought a SportDOG system for their reputation, and glad I did.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great but had to do some modifications I have a very wimpy German Shorthair Pointer. He does not like pain. After he got zapped the first time he wouldn't leave the porch for a few weeks. He really doesn't need the anything more than the tone. He also has some skin issues and the contacts were causing irritation on his neck. I tried to loosen the collar because of the irritation on his neck and he lost the collar. When I replaced the collar I got a web collar that I can just clip on and off and different screws so that they don't stick into his neck. That seems to work fine and he hasn't lost it yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product I was very hesitant about purchasing this fence system, but in order to allow my GS to roam I gave it a shot. I rented a cable trencher and fenced in 2.75 acres in about 8 hours. This system worked as advertised and I have had no issues. My wife and I recently added some landscaping and this allowed me the flexibility to tie into the existing wire and outline the new flower beds in about an hour. We have had this fence for about a year and a half and I recommend it to anyone that is looking to protect their pet and still allow for maximum terrain to run.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase & Outstanding Customer Service I purchased this in-ground fence apprehensive that it could contain our VERY stubborn dog. I installed this fence in a day and the training began. I fully expected to have to take the full 30days of training to get my dog to conform, but in only two short days my dog immediately new her boundaries. Even with the receiver on the lowest settings, my dog immediately associated her boundaries to the flags. During training she ran through the fence excited to see a neighbor, but upon stimulation immediately returned to her boundary and sat down. We are more than pleased with the system. We did have an issue with the collar/receiver breaking only two weeks after use. The receiver housing cracked right at the point of attachment for the contact point. We're not sure if this a product issue or simply an isolated incident in which our dog got hung up on something. Either way, I contacted customer service and they replaced the receiver at no charge. Definitely worth the money and piece of mind with containing our dog. No ugly privacy fence needed on our property now and if there is an issue, I am confident that Sport Dog Customer Service will be more than willing to help fix any problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Service I have a SD in ground fence unit that was recently hit by lightning. I contacted support and I was informed that my unit would be replaced and suggested that I purchase a surge protection device for the outlet and did so. Very impressed with the service and support I received. The product itself has been very effective in keeping our german shorthair pointer on our property. Battery life on collar has been superb. Thanks Dale!!!!

How long does the battery last in the collars? Where do you buy the batteries at? 

Asked by: Halmes13
Thank you for your interest! The collar uses a standard 9V battery, which is a very common battery and gets approximately 1-3 months of battery life, depending on frequency of activation/how often your dog tests the boundary.

If I were to bury the wire.Would I have to put it in a pipe or hose?Or can I just have the wire buried alone?

Asked by: Cbujn
Thank you for this question! You may bury the wire without and protection. It will need to be 3 to 6 inches deep. For any additional questions you may have please feel free to reach out to us at 1-800-732-2677. We are always happy to help!

Can the wire be installed inside a pvc conduit rather than direct bury in the earth?

Asked by: Fullboilmaple
Thanks for your question! Yes. if the wire will be crossing a gravel driveway or a high traffic pathway, placing it in PVC piping can be a great option to help protect the boundary wire. If you will be placing the wire in larger sections of PVC piping, you may wish to leave access points at regular intervals in case sections of the wire ever need to be accessed.

If my dog runs fast enough over the perimeter, will the shock continue until they are back in the perimeter?

Asked by: Brittany38261
Thank you for your question, Brittany! When the collar enters the stimulation zone around the boundary wire, it will give a static stimulation for a 30 second period. After that, a safety shut-off will be enabled which will prevent further stimulation; the shut-off will continue until the collar then leaves the stimulation zone.

How deep do you need to bury the wire. Could It be laid on top of the ground or attached to wood post.

Asked by: Basset
Thanks for your question! Typically, the wire is buried about 1-3", but you can certainly run the wire above ground as well and attach it to wood posts; it will work just as well above ground as it will when buried.
