eXtreme Dog Fence® Standard Active Electric Dog Fence Kit
|Overview||eXtreme Dog Fence® Manual|
This Standard (entry level) DIY Dog Fence Kit from eXtreme Dog Fence® offers high-tech features and a compact and lightweight collar that is suitable for all but the littlest dogs. The Standard Kit is the same fence as the Ultra Kit but does not include twisted wire or a surge protection module. Like all eXtreme Dog Fences®, this one features unique features like Temp & Wire Check as well as multiple frequency selection to avoid interference from a neighboring dog fence or other devices. Check out our eXtreme Dog Fence® Pro-Grade Dog Fence Kit for the best deal on this best-selling brand.
Digital Frequency Encoding: The digital frequency encoding is a handy feature if you think a neighbor may also have an electric dog fence. This tech feature eliminates stray signal interference from neighboring dog fence systems and other signal generating devices. Nearby dog fence systems and other devices that generate similar signals can interfere with your electric dog fence causing signal interruption or unreliability.
Small & Lightweight: The eXtreme Dog Fence® Active receiver collar is one of the lightest and smallest collars in the industry (surpassed only by the small dog specific PetSafe Elite Little Dog). Weighing in at only 1.1 ounces it is suitable for dogs right down to 8 lbs. For dogs smaller than that you’ll want to go for the PetSafe Elite Little Dog, which tones down the correction strength in addition to the small collar size.
Comfort Contacts: The eXtreme Dog Fence® Active receiver collar uses unique conductive rubber contact points to increase collar comfort for your dog. While the comfort contact points conduct the correction just like metal contact points, they are softer and less irritating on your dog’s skin. The comfort contact points make this system the number one choice for dog’s with sensitive skin.
8 Individual Correction Settings: The small eXtreme Dog Fence® Active collars are capable of 1 tone only setting, 5 unique static correction level settings and 2 progressive settings that automatically increase as the dog continues towards the boundary line. Each collar on the system has its own correction level setting, but rather than being set on the collar itself, they are set at the transmitter. The unique correction level settings and lightweight collar make this a good choice for multi-dog households where all dogs are 8+ lbs.
Battery Check: The patented Battery Check feature ensures you only change the battery when it is truly depleted. The Battery Check feature auto-activates every two hours to ensure you know as soon as your battery is low. Since battery output fluctuates depending on the environment and other factors the eXtreme Dog Fence® collar requires 3 consecutive low battery triggers to set off the low battery indication.
Exceptional Waterproofing: Because the Active collar does not have any buttons or dials on the collar itself, the waterproofing is really perfect. The collar can be fully submersed while functioning. Because of this feature we recommend the eXtreme Dog Fence® for rainy climates as well as lake front installation or yards with ponds or pools.
Disposable Proprietary Battery: This collar uses a disposable proprietary battery. Most people prefer a rechargeable battery, a generic battery is second best because it’s easy to get your hands on. The proprietary battery is generally our least favorite but does have it’s virtues in this case. The Perimeter Technologies proprietary battery has a pretty impressive 2-4 month lifespan and their superior tech features include a sophisticated battery indicator that detects a true low battery so you only change it when it is depleted. For some people a battery change every 2-4 months is preferable over remembering to recharge daily.
Multiple Frequencies: The standout feature on the eXtreme Dog Fence® transmitter is the multiple frequency selection. This feature ensures that your dog fence will work, uninterrupted, even if your neighbors install their own dog fence or there are other signal emitting devices around.
Adjustable Boundary Zone: The boundary zone width adjustment on the eXtreme Dog Fence® system is completely digital so you can make really precise adjustments. The zone width can range from just a few inches to 32 ft. and the system is capable of remembering and returning to past settings.
Temp Check & Wire Check: eXtreme Dog Fence® is known for their attention to detail and techie system components. Their patented Temp Check and Wire Check diagnostic features automatically sense and adjust for temperature and electrical changes that could impact the performance of the dog fence boundary wire. This may seem unimportant in average climates but can actually make a significant difference in very cold temperatures or areas where the power is spotty at times.
25 Acre Capacity: The eXtreme Dog Fence® PRO-Grade dog fence is capable of installations of 25 acres or less. While other fences in the same price point offer greater coverage, 25 acres is more than enough for most urban and suburban properties.
Lacks Battery Backup: Surprisingly, despite all the tech savviness at eXtreme Dog Fence®, this system lacks battery backup in case of power failure. While the transmitter is very reliable, if the power goes out and the boundary goes down, your dogs will be unprotected.
|Do you like what you see, but want a wire that will last a whole lot longer before it begins to degrade and break down? Do you want a surge protector that does double duty (protects your fence system AND protects your home’s internal electrical system from any lightning strikes that hit your boundary wire)? How about a 3 year warranty vs. a 1 year manufacturer warranty? Would you like your package to include a 1 year containment guarantee, so that you can be sure you invest in a product that will be sufficient to meet your dog’s temperament and personality? If these upgrades and more strike your fancy, then perhaps you would rather invest in the PRO-Grade version of this fence system.
