PetSitter® Hidden Fences installed by San Diego Pet Fence are designed to keep your pet safe and to be safe for your pet.

Hide the Fence. Not your yard!

A PetSitter hidden fence gives your pets freedom while keeping them happy and safe in their own yard. You can also use a hidden fence to designate areas that are “off-limits” such as flowerbeds, a gated driveway, kids play area, swimming pool, or BBQ pit. We can install a system for a small area or up to 200 acres. We can go over the river and through the woods - or whatever is right for you.

Works Well for Cat Containment, Too!

Our PetSitter hidden fence system works well as a cat fence, too. If you have a dog and a cat? No problem. You can use a PetSitter hidden fence as a cat fence and a dog fence at the same time. And if you have several dogs and cats? No problem. Our hidden fence systems can handle multiple pets. And since no two pets are alike, the collar settings can be individually adjusted to suit the breed, size, age and temperament of each dog and/or cat on the system.

PetSitter® Transmitter Features

Unique features and benefits not available in other brands.

dogwatch safelink transmitterThe transmitter controls the coded radio signal in the buried wire. In addition to being the only universal transmitter available for hidden fences, the PetSitter transmitter is user-friendly and user-adjustable. You won’t find anything quite like it in other brands. The PetSitter transmitter includes unique features such as:


Secure digital FM technology is the safest for your pet

Our patented digital FM technology provides the maximum protection against false activation caused by stray radio signals. Our FM SafeLink technology is less prone to interference and stray signals than the AM systems used by other brands, and that makes PetSitter the most secure and safest hidden fence available.

Flexible Training Levels

Individual user adjustable settings that fit your pet’s personality

The combination of settings on the PetSitter transmitter and receiver offer up to twenty different correction levels to ensure safe and appropriate training for your pet. You can also set your system to “audible only” to introduce your dog gently to the training and his boundaries.

Range Setting and Loop Monitor

Settings are displayed on the transmitter so you understand your system

This dual function display allows you to set the signal field width to best meet the needs of your pet(s): a broad outdoor dog fence field for a larger animal or a smaller range cat fence for your favorite feline. It also alerts you to any change in the strength of boundary signal or to a break in the boundary wire. This is an invaluable safety feature for underground fences and fences that are invisible to the eye.

Battery Back Up™

Extra security to keep your fence on when the power is out

Our optional battery back up keeps your pet fence system working temporarily should you lose electric power. After training, most dogs will stay within the hidden boundary even when the system is not on, but with a battery back up you have added protection to ensure your pets safety when the power goes out. Provides up to 8 hours of back-up protection.

We also have indoor systems if you want to keep your pet off the kitchen counter, out of the trash, away from a piece of furniture (or a whole room) or to keep him from running out an open door.

Keep your pet with or away from:

A room you want to protect, the dog from the kitty's litter box or food, a couch, a window, going through a door.  Learn all the ways you can make your life and your pets life easier.

Small package. Outstanding performance.


Ultra tuff

PetSitter receiver products are designed to resist chewing, soaking, rough play


PetSitter has the fastest reaction time in the industry. If your dog runs at the boundary, the receiver reacts with the warning signal before he reaches the wire, not while he is traveling over it.


This patented safety feature automatically adjusts the receiver’s correction level if your pet challenges the boundary. This discourages additonal boundary challenges. The receiver automatically resets to the original level after 24 hours without a boundary challenge.


This safety feature let's you know if your pet challenges his boundary. If your pet activates the audible alert or receives a correction, the status light on the receiver collar will double flash instead of the usual single flash. If this happens frequently, you may may need to adjust the boundary or receiver settings. The receiver will reset to the single flash after 24 hours without a boundary challenge.

Warning Alert (Audible or Vibration)

All PetSitter systems include a warning signal to alert the dog that he is approaching the boundary. Your pet will learn to stop at the warning signal before he reaches the hidden wire. With a PetSitter system, you have your choice of either an audible alert or a vibration alert. The vibration warning is perfect for hearing impaired and deaf dogs.

Status Light

Only PetSitter offers a status light to confirm that your pet’s receiver is functioning properly. It also lets you know when the receiver battery is low and if your pet has recently challenged the hidden fence. This important feature provides valuable information to help ensure your pet stays safely in your yard.

Automatic Shutdown

The PetSitter system is designed to protect your pet from an over-correction in the unlikely event that your dog stands in the signal field and does not quickly exit. The receiver will also automatically reset once the dog leaves the signal field.

High Impact, Waterproof

The PetSitter receiver is tested to withstand the harsh outdoor elements of rain, sleet and snow . . . as well as rigorous play!
