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.
