Dog Fence Reviews

In-Ground Dog Fence Reviews

Welcome to the Flexpetz.com DIY Dog Fence Reviews. Throughout our 20+ years in the DIY dog fence industry we've used and tested all of the dog fences that we sell. In our review section we try to pass on as much of that experience as we can to our customers to help you make an informed decision when choosing a dog fence. Our motivation is customer satisfaction and that means providing expert, unbiased reviews and the most accurate information possible.

  • We sell all of the dog fence systems we review. In our reviews we try to be honest in pointing out the strengths and weaknesses of each system. We feel that providing our customers with honest information informed by real life experience is the best way to ensure customer satisfaction. You won't find an empty salespitch copied from a manufacturer website at Flexpetz.com, rather just honest to goodness details that will help you select the best fence for you and your dog.

    Our reviews are detailed and there is a lot of information to wade through. This can be overwhelming for someone new to DIY dog fences. If you find yourself confused, torn between two similar systems, or even at a complete loss, don't worry! Just contact us using our live chat or by phone at (877) 902-8132. We have dog fence installation and training professionals available to help you make sense of all the information and match a fence to your needs. We can even pull up a satellite image of your property right while we chat to help us recommend the perfect fence or help you plan your fence layout.

    We provide our customers with expert installation, training, and technical guidance for the life of your system. Feel free to call us with any questions you may have regarding your dog fence system. Unlike the big box stores, we've personally tested and used all of the systems we sell and can answer your questions from personal experience rather than just reading the manufacturer website.

Have any information or reviews on MGG maxi dog fence
regards John Penman

John,

Unfortunately, we do not have any experience with that system. However, we will look into it and see if it would be a good quality system to add to our catalog.

I have a 20 lb mixed breed that is 1 year old and need to set a boundrry for him as he is very active. I have a 200x200 lot with the home in the middle.What is your recommendation as to the best solution to insure he stays in the boundry of my lot?a

Flexpetz

Because of your small area, I would recommend either the PetSafe YardMax basic fence system, or even better - the PetSafe Pro Grade YardMax system.

They are the only fence systems we offer, which allow your dog to get right up to the fence wire, before getting a warning/correction.
This allows the most yard space, within your boundary, for your dog to take advantage of.

I hope that helps.
