I want to relate an experience I have had with Invisible Fence. I had the Invisible Fence system installed and I have since found out two things that I think the public should be aware of before purchasing this system for your pet. First of all if you can do it yourself then do it. You will save hundreds of dollars. All of the parts can be ordered through one of several companies on the internet for about 1/3 the price of the Invisible Fence installation. God forbid if you use the invisible fence system and have the unfortunate circumstance of losing or misplacing the dog collar. If you do and call Invisible Fence they will charge you $400 for a new collar. Also, just a heads up but if the transmitter needs to be replaced it will cost you $400 for that too. You can purchase a transmitter AND a collar that is of the same quality as that provided by Invisible Fence for under $200. Talk about a ripoff. Any quality transmitter and collar will work because after the wire is installed it can be hooked up to any system.
Second, I found out that part of the dog fence wire was installed on my neighbors property on a fence that separated our property. I only found out about this after my neighbor decided to change fences. She came over and said "When they changed the fence out they did not destroy your dog wire". I asked her what she was talking about and she showed me. I called Invisible Fence of the Gulf Coast and advised them that the fence wire was installed on my neighbors property and they told me that "it is in our notes" that you said that that was okay. I would never knowingly allow someone to install something that belongs to me on property that is not mine.
The worst part of doing business with Invisible Fence of the Gulf Coast is having to deal with an unnamed woman (I believe it is the owner's wife) that is as nasty a person as anyone will ever have to do business with. She said that I had been rude to her on three occasions which is not correct. I did voice my displeasure when she quoted me a price on a replacement dog collar as she quoted me an outrageous number. I told her that I thought she was ripping me off, and, as it turns out, based on my research she was ripping me off. As I stated earlier you can get a replacement collar AND a new transmitter for 1/2 of what she was trying to gouge me for on the collar alone.
Finally be aware that if the wire is ever broken they will come out and charge you over $100 to repair it. It requires a simple splice and about $1 worth of wire which can be purchased at any hardware store. It only takes minutes to do the repair. Be careful when you make a choice about who will or how you will install a dog fence. As it turns out I could have bought three of these systems for what I paid for the Invisible Fence. And it is way simpler than I ever imagined.
