Overall, the Dogtek Electronic Dog Fence System is good performer. With two separate zones of boundaries, it allows you to customize your warning and correction zones. It’s a gentler system that allows pets to get accustomed to the boundaries without fear of receiving corrections. After all, any type of pet training that requires little or no physical discomfort is preferred by dog trainers and pet owners over other types of systems.
