Is Pennmar Pet Stop associated with Invisible Fence®, Petsafe®, Innotek®, Dogwatch®, Dog Guard® or ANY other electric pet fencing brand other than Pet Stop®?
No. Pennmar Pet Stop is an exclusive Pet Stop® fence dealer and is not associated with any other electric pet fencing brand, though we do provide independent service on competing brands. Pennmar Pet Stop only provides manufacturer warrantees on Pet Stop® brand electric pet fencing products.
What makes Pet Stop® different from competing brands like Invisible Fence®?
Pet Stop® is the only electric pet containment system that is 100% made in the USA. Pet Stop® is also the most technologically-advanced brand available on the market, holding more patents than any other electric fence company in the industry, including Invisible Fence®.
Are there any indoor pet containment solutions available?
Yes, we can provide you with an indoor pet fence system. Our indoor electric pet fences are ideal for maintaining pet-free zones in your home and can can keep your furry friends out of entire rooms, or just away from smaller areas like the kitchen garbage can.
Pet Fence Training FAQ’s.
Are there any age, breed, or size limits for my pet to be trained to the electric fence?
There are no size or breed limits – we can train dogs of all shapes and sizes to the fence.
We do recommend that your pet be at least 8 weeks old before training begins – they should also be aware and comfortable with their environment before training begins.
Can cats be trained to the electric fence system?
Yes, we can train cats to the fence. Our indoor pet fencing system is excellent for creating cat-free zones inside the house.
Does the correction hurt my pet?
No, our receiver collars are designed merely to startle your pet, not harm them. Designed to be extremely humane and pet-friendly, the amount of energy used in a correction is comparable to the amount of energy in a carpet’s static shock.
About how long will it take to train my dog to the new fence?
Every pet is unique, with their own temperaments and learning curve needs. Most pets are trained within a couple of weeks, but some take more time, and some take less. We’ll use our pet expertise to customize your pet’s training experience to best suit their needs.
Can I use an electronic pet fence to contain my aggressive dog?
No. If you have an aggressive dog, Pennmar Pet Stop will not install an underground electronic pet fence unless it’s going to be used alongside an already-existing wooden or chain-link fence. We don’t recommend the use of corrections on aggressive dogs and recommend you talk with your vet about alternative methods of training.
Pet Fence Product FAQ’s.
Are your products compatible with other electronic pet fencing systems?
Yes. Both our transmitters and receiver collars are compatible with most other electric dog fence systems, including Invisible Fence® brand.
How long do the batteries last?
How long the batteries last depends on how often your pet tests the boundaries. Most batteries last from 3 months to a year. When battery life is running low, the patented FlashAlert® feature will let you know so you’ll have a chance to change the batteries out before they die.
