Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
How is Pet Stop different from Invisible Fence® and other companies?
No other system can match the range of patented, customizable features and expert training offered by Pet Stop. Each Dealer is an expert in pet fencing. The GentleSteps training is a Pet Stop exclusive. EcoLite Rechargeable Receiver and its diagnostic charger are also exclusive to Pet Stop. Our customizable systems produce a 99.6% successful containment rating – the highest in the industry.
Founded in 1992, Pet Stop is managed by a team of industry pioneers with the most experience and highest pet aptitude in the business. Only Pet Stop combines our genuine love of pets with in-depth knowledge and commitment to technology to produce the finest, most reliable pet containment system in the world.
Are your products compatible with other systems?
Yes. Pet Stop is compatible with most other pet containment systems available on the market today, including Invisible Fence®.
Do you offer indoor systems?
Absolutely. We offer a battery operated and a wired option. Our indoor system is every bit as effective as our outdoor pet fence system, but operates on a slightly different principle. The indoor unit is designed to customize areas of the home for your dog or cat to avoid, rather than keep contained within; however, the system can be used to limit a pet’s habitat if need be. Find out more about our indoor unit by visiting products.
How do your warranty policies work?
When you buy into a Pet Stop system, we’re confident you’re purchasing hands-down the best containment system on the market. This belief in the effectiveness of our products makes it possible for us to offer a lifetime warranty on most products, as well as the following simple offer: if you can find a more advanced pet fence system than Pet Stop, we’ll buy it for you. Period.
Can I take my system with me if I move?
Absolutely. All you’ll need is wire installation to fence in the boundaries at your new location. Contact your dealer for more information.
How much does Pet Stop cost?
Bearing in mind market and location, any provider of pet fencing differs in cost; however, as a rule of thumb, a professionally installed system can range anywhere from $850 to $2,500, depending on yard size, number of pets, and installation.
Do pet fencing systems really work?
With the proper training and professional installation, our fencing system is extremely effective. Our dealers are expert with years of knowledge, so you can rest assured we have the most advanced pet fence system in the industry. In fact, our customer feedback rates Pet Stop’s containment effectiveness at a very successful 99.6%.
How is Pet Stop different from the self-installed systems available?
Two critical differences really. The first is the initial training your pet receives from our dealer. Incorrect training makes for disappointing results. The second–and even more important reason–is that not all training is permanent. Over time your pets can become accustomed to their system, which can lead to a breakdown in their controlled boundaries. By combining a wide array of receiver settings with our tried and tested training techniques, Pet Stop has a significant advantage over these other products and can manage behavioral concerns before they develop into bad habits.
How much training is involved?
Initially, your pet receives a week of focused handling and exposure to various correction techniques, followed by a week of less intensive training–so roughly two weeks.
