How much is Invisible Fence?
People want to know how much Invisible Fence costs, but the truth is, we don't have one price that fits all because we don’t believe one solution fits all pets. Unlike DIY dog fences, we customize all of our outdoor containment quotes for your yard and your pet. Cost varies depending on lot size, installation requirements, the best solution for your pet, how many pets are on the system, etc.
So, if you are wondering how much it will cost to protect your pet, the best way is to give us a call! We offer free In-Home® consultations, so our Pet Consultant can meet your pet and walk your property to find a custom solution and custom estimate for you.
Are electric dog fences cheaper than traditional fences?
Electric dog fences are a fraction of the cost compared to physical fences, which average $10 - $30 per foot depending on materials. On average, it is 45% - 80% more cost-effective to fence in a quarter acre with Invisible Fence than with a traditional fence.
Materials such as traditional wood, vinyl and chain link are expensive, especially when you start calculating cost to fence in large lots and properties over five acres. With Boundary Plus™ Technology and our satellite-driven GPS 3.0, Invisible Fence can safely contain your dog in your yard for a fraction of the price.
When looking at how the price of traditional fencing compares to wireless dog fencing, it is also important to look at cost of maintenance and installation over the lifetime of the fence. Not only will you save some money with an underground fence, you will also save your view!
What is the most cost-effective pet fence?
There are many factors that contribute to the cost of your electric underground fence. While DIY dog fences seem cheaper upfront, they don’t include quality wire, professional installation, certified dog trainers, money back guarantees or warranty. So, when considering the most cost-effective pet fence, it is important to calculate all these factors into the cost.
Many of our customers also came to Invisible Fence after trying DIY dog fences on their own and realizing that the installation and training is harder than anticipated. Not only is installing a DIY dog fence labor intensive, but it often requires renting equipment which accrues additional fees.
What is included in the price of Invisible Fence?
One of the reasons that Invisible Fence is the best dog fence on the market is because we offer all-inclusive solutions, including:
- Free In-Home Consultation and Estimate
- Professional Installation
- Animal-Behaviorist Approved Training from Certified Trainers
- Money-Back Performance Guarantee
- Minimum One-Year Equipment Warranty
We consider ourselves a premier brand because we give our customers a premier experience and the best product on the market. That’s why we offer money-back performance guarantee.
Is Invisible Fence worth the investment?
Keeping your pet secure in your yard is a necessary investment, whether that is via a traditional fence or Invisible Fence. And it is worth investing in the best solution for your dogs and/or cats to keep them safe.
We offer a Money-Back Performance Guarantee on our systems as well as a minimum of a one-year equipment warranty. Many of our systems also include a limited lifetime equipment warranty. This way not only is your pet secure - so is your investment.
