Article Index: In-Ground / Underground Dog Fencing Systems

These articles are for In-Ground Pet Fencing Systems. An In-Ground Pet Fencing System is a system that uses a physical wire, normally buried just under the ground, to transmit a signal to an electronic collar that your dog wears. In-Ground Fences are a safe and humane way to keep your dog on your property, which is where he/she belongs!

In-Ground Pet Fences are often also called Underground Dog Fences, Electronic Dog Fences, E-Fences, Electric Dog Fences, or (incorrectly) Invisible Fences®. (The last term is descriptive, but Invisible Fence® is a registered trademark. See bottom of the page for full legal information.)
