Status Light (All receivers)
All our system collars also contain a status light that lets you know the status of the battery. The status light will warn you when the battery is running low by flashing red instead of the normal green.
Anti-Linger (All receivers)
Once trained your cat will react to the warning beep. Most cats will know to the centimetre where the collar activates and will avoid entering the beep area. However, as added protection if your cat enters into the warning beep zone and lingers in this area for more than 8 seconds the collar will emit a correction at the level set.
Battery Back-Up (Performance Series only)
For extra security to keep your fence on when the power is out, our optional PowerPak* keeps your pet fence system working temporarily should you lose electric power. After training, most cats will stay within the hidden boundary even when the system is not on, but with a PowerPak you have added protection to ensure your pet's safety when the power goes out. Provides up to 12 hours of back-up protection.
Audible Break Alarm
All our systems contain technology to notify you of any damage to the cable. An audible alarm will sound on the transmitter unit immediately when the cable is broken – this gives you an advantage of being able to repair the break as soon as possible to prevent any more damage.
CatFence equip your DogWatch Hidden Fence with both internal and external surge protection to protect your home from damage. Your boundary cable can act as a magnet and lightning strikes to flat ground can pick up your boundary cable and enter your home. DogWatch’s unique lightning protection safeguards your system. No other hidden fence system contains this prevention and provides a warranty for your system against lightning strikes. We’re so confident that our lightning and surge protection is unsurpassed, that we provide a lifetime warranty with your transmitter. (Applies to System 1200+ and Performance Series Systems only).
TattleTale ® (Performance Series System)
The TattleTale ® feature works with the status light on the collar to let you know if the cat has ‘challenged’ the fence at all by activating the collar in the avoidance zone. This feature is extremely useful with cats as they move in a different way to their canine friends and have the ability to climb, this way if something changes around the boundary the collar will alert you so that the boundary can be checked.
Response Hang on Time
What is response hang on time? This is the time it takes the receiver to shut down after the pet has left the correction zone, i.e your pet has responded and left the zone and the correction should stop. With DogWatch our response hang on time on all our receiver collars is less than 0.1 seconds and from our competition 4 – 5 seconds! We leave our customers to decide why DogWatch has consistently been voted a Consumers best buy and is the preferred choice of many vets and animal behaviourists worldwide.
