If you're looking for an in-ground dog fence, you should look closely at the different cheap Innotek pet fencing systems available. A company called RadioFence manufactures products for the dog fence brands Invisible Fence, PetSafe, and Innotek.

Essentially, Innotek is a lesser expensive version of Invisible Fence, both made by the same company, at a much lower price. You'll also find the same Innotek pet fencing system being sold under the PetSafe brand name.

Under the Innotek brand there are several different models to choose from, each with different features. These models are readily advertised on the internet as well as being available in pet stores. We recommend you shop several places online or instore to locate the best price and delivery times.

Innotek pet fences operate by sending radio waves from a base unit through an in-ground copper wire that is buried along a boundary for your pet that you select. There is a corresponding dog collar that contains a radio receiver. When the dog crosses the boundary, a mild "correction" shock is given to the dog to keep him in the boundary.

After two days, most dogs learn the new "rules" of the dog fence and stay within the boundaries of the in-ground fence.

Below we'll discuss the different Innotek pet fencing models to help you learn which one may be right for you.

Your coverage areas are dictated by the coverage area of the wireless unit. If you have a larger property that you want to make available to your dog, you may need to purchase two or more wireless base stations in order to overlap and therefore cover the greater area. This of course adds to your overall cost.
