ACTIVITY TRACKING
4
ACTIVITY TRACKING
On the Activity screens, you can see daily, weekly or monthly activity views of your pet's
activity levels.
The Activity Tracker provides a graphic representation of
your pet's general activity levels throughout the day. The
SmartCollar™ reports hourly to show you if your pet was
mostly:

Very Active

Moderately Active

Lightly Active

Resting
You can view the current 24 hour period, the past 24 hours,
or you can look back to view weekly and monthly trends.
The SmartCollar™ sends a new
Activity Update once every hour.
Daily Activity View
The SmartCollar™ is designed with the understanding that your pet will probably spend
time in parts of the yard that may be beyond the transmission range of your SmartFence™
Communication Portal. That's OK!
 If your dog is beyond the transmission range of the Portal, the activity data is not
lost. It is stored inside of the collar until the dog is back within range and the collar
reconnects. The collar will store up to 12 hours of activity data. When the collar
reconnects to the Portal, the stored data will be added to your activity
graph during the next hourly update.
 The Collar does not need to be in transmission range of the Portal for
the Hidden Fence to work. The Hidden Fence signal from your boundary wire
continues to work even when the collar is not connected to Portal.

to go back to the Home screen.

having a bad connection because it is too far from
the Portal
• a power outage (the PowerPak typically provides
power for about eight (8) hours when fully charged)
• a lightning strike or power surge that damaged the
Transmitter
A notification will appear on the WebApp and will turn

HIDDEN FENCE INSTALLATION
Installation Basics
The fence is created by burying a wire in your yard. Your DogWatch Dealer will work
with you to establish the best configuration for you, your dog and your yard.
Containment Area: Full Yard
Designated "Keep Out" Areas: Pool, Play Area, Garden
Continuous Loop:
Dog receives signal
through collar.
Twisted wire: No
signal. Dog can
cross.
The SmartFence™ Transmitter sends a coded digital FM radio signal through
a wire buried in your yard (the boundary wire). The wire is buried 3-4” beneath the
surface of the yard or can lie on top of the ground (e.g. in wooded or rocky areas.)
It is not electrified, so it can also be installed in water (streams, in lakes, etc.)
The boundary wire can enclose up to 200 acres. It can be configured to
enclose all or part of your yard. It can be used to keep your pets inside the
boundary and/or out of designated areas such as the pool, your garden or
other areas.
To work properly, the boundary wire must form a continuous loop. A twisted
wire cancels the signal and can be used in locations where you want the dog
to be able to cross the wire without receiving a warning signal or correction, such
as where the wire travels from the house to the boundary perimeter.
Signal Field
The signal field is typically set at 3 to 6 feet (each side of the wire) but can be set
from 1 to 10 feet (each side). The signal field is adjusted by the Range Control
on the Transmitter. Your Dealer will determine an appropriate signal field for your
pets and will set the Transmitter accordingly.
Signal Field
The radio signal is transmitted
equidistant from the boundary
wire in all directions.

IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS & REMINDERS
•
Never adjust the Transmitter while your dog is wearing the SmartCollar.
•
Keep the Transmitter and SmartCollar out of reach of children.
•
Never attempt to service the Transmitter or SmartCollar yourself.
•
Be sure your Transmitter and surge protector are properly grounded.
•
Fit the collar snugly around your dog’s neck. It should be touching the skin
without creating pressure where it touches.
•
Remove the collar regularly and check the dog's neck for irritation. We
recommend removing the collar when the dog is inside at night. Pressure
sores may develop if the collar is too tight or left on for long periods without
removal or repositioning.
•
Make sure the battery is fresh and is inserted correctly.
•
Train your dog as instructed by your Dealer.

note:
After the SmartFence is installed and set up complete, the WebApp will alert you
if the PowerPak battery back-up has been activated.
4.Ground Wire: The green ground wire connects to the Transmitter at the location labeled
“GND.” The round connector on the green ground wire is attached under the screw on the
outlet faceplate. It will, however, only be effective if your outlet is properly grounded. If you
have any questions about having a properly grounded outlet, consult your local electrician.
5.Boundary Loop Plug: Your system includes a zip cord with a plug on one end. This plug
fits into the hole marked “Loop” on the bottom of the Transmitter. This is the beginning of the
boundary wire that is buried in your yard.
note:
After the boundary wire has been properly installed and plugged into the Transmitter, the
Range and Boundary Loop Monitor light will turn on.

6.Range and Boundary Loop Monitor Display: The Range and Boundary Loop
Monitor Display (LMD) provides a visual indication of the status of your boundary wire
and signal range. On traditional boundary wire configurations, each number on the scale
represents the signal range in feet. Range is the distance the signal is being broadcast
from each side of the wire. A significant change (drop) in signal range could indicate a
partial wire break or other boundary wire problem. If the boundary loop wire is broken or
the signal is interrupted, the light will go out and an audible warning from the Transmitter
will sound. You should check around your property for a visible wire break. Contact your
dealer for troubleshooting tips or to schedule a service call.
note:
For non-traditional wire configurations where the boundary wires may be close to
one another, the LMD may not measure the boundary signal accurately in
feet, but is a visual setting reference point. Your DogWatch Dealer will explain the
LMD setting and your actual signal range.
7.Range Control: The radio signal is transmitted from the boundary wire in all directions.
The signal range (the distance the signal broadcasts from the wire) is adjusted by the
Range Control on the transmitter. The recommended signal range (on each side of
the wire) is 6-10 feet. Your DogWatch Dealer will adjust the range according to the
personality and traits of your dog. Consult your DogWatch Dealer before making any
adjustments yourself.
Signal Field: The signal field (the area in which the dog’s receiver collar detects the
signal) has two areas. The outer-most part of the signal field (~13% of the signal field)
triggers an audible warning. If your pet continues further into the signal field, he will
receive a correction. To prevent your dog from entering the signal field and remaining
in the audible area (causing depletion of the battery), the receiver transitions from an
audible warning to a short warning correction after a period of 15 seconds. This will not
activate if the receiver is set to the “Audible Only” Training Level (Level “0” - see Setting
the SmartCollar Levels on pg. 16)
8.Training Mode: The Training Mode switch allows you to choose between two petfriendly training options: Basic (Mode A) and QuickAlert™ (Mode B). In the Basic setting,
your pet receives the normal audible warning followed by a correction if he continues
into the signal field. When set to QuickAlert (used primarily for harder to train dogs), your
pet receives a very quick “alert” correction followed by the normal audible warning and
correction.
note:
If you have multiple dogs on the system, the Training Mode setting affects all
receivers. They are ALL set to the same mode, Basic or QuickAlert™.
9.Rate: The Rate can be adjusted to three levels (1 = slow, 2 = medium, 3 = fast). When
your dog gets a correction, he receives it in a series of pulses. Increasing the Rate
delivers a greater number of pulses per second. The adjustable Rate feature operates
only when the Receiver Training Level is set to Level 1, 2, or 3.
(See the SmartCollar Levels and Transmitter Settings chart on pg. 30)

9.Collar Bone: The Collar Bone, metal lock washers and contact posts fasten the
receiver to the nylon collar. (A Collar Bone is not used with the GentleFit™ posts.)
10. Lock Washers: See #9 above.
11. Contact Posts: The receiver comes with a set of stainless steel contact posts.
Conductive plastic ‘GentleFit’ contact posts may be purchased separately if
preferred or if recommended by your Dealer.
!
Use care if you find it necessary to tighten the contact posts, as over-tightening could
cause damage to the receiver.
The contact posts must touch the skin in order for the dog to feel the
correction. Your DogWatch Dealer will determine the correct contact posts
based on your dog’s coat, neck shape, and skin sensitivity. In certain cases,
your Dealer may recommend clipping some of the hair around the contact
posts so that they can touch the skin more easily.
To prevent skin irritation from the contact posts, we recommend removing
the collar at night and/or when not in use. Prolonged use of the collar or a collar
that is too tight may lead to pressure sores, especially if the dog has sensitive skin.
FEATURES
Antenna:
The omni-directional antenna design assures optimal reception from the signal field.
SafeLink® Digital FM Design:
Our patented FM design allows the SmartCollar to recognize and activate only to our
unique radio signal. This protects your pet from unintentional correction caused by stray
radio signals which may be emitted by other electronic devices.
AutoMemory®:
Our patented AutoMemory™ feature automatically adjusts the correction level of the
receiver when your pet challenges the boundary. When the receiver is set to one of the
AutoMemory levels, and the dog enters the signal field, the dog will receive the correction
of the initial setting. If your dog leaves the signal field, the receiver will automatically advance
the correction level setting by one, and only one level. If the dog does not re-enter the
signal field within the next 24-hour period, the receiver defaults to the original setting. The
AutoMemory feature operates when your Receiver Training Level is set to 4, 5, or 6.
FastReact® Time:
Whether your dog, strolls, runs or sprints into the Avoidance Zone, the receiver will react—
and correct—within 1/8 of a second (.125 sec).
Automatic Shutdown:
The DogWatch SmartFence is designed to protect your dog from an over-correction in
the unlikely event that your dog gets caught in the signal field. If your dog does not exit the
signal field, the receiver will automatically stop correcting after 15 seconds—protecting
your dog from over-correction. The receiver will automatically reset after the dog leaves the
signal field.

Batteries
Resetting the Low Battery Light
1. Remove the old battery.
2. Before inserting a new battery, let the SmartCollar sit
for five minutes with no battery. (If you forget to wait
prior to inserting a new battery, the “low battery” light
will continue to blink red until it automatically resets
itself after 24 hours.)
Insert battery POSITIVE end down.
3. After five minutes, insert the new battery.
Battery Insertion Instructions
The SmartCollar is powered by a 3.6 volt lithium battery with a battery life of up to
1 year. The Positive end of the battery must be inserted down.
Battery Plans
Ask your DogWatch Dealer about a battery plan. If your DogWatch Dealer does not offer
a battery plan, call DogWatch at 800-793-3436 or join through the website at:
www.dogwatch.com/customer-resources/outdoor/battery-plan-sign-up/
IMPORTANT: The use of any battery other than a battery authorized by DogWatch Inc. can
cause erratic operation of the SmartCollar and could cause permanent damage. The use of
any unauthorized battery will void the Warranty on the SmartCollar.
Setting the Receiver Levels
The SmartCollar Receiver has seven
levels of correction
plus Audible Only.
Your DogWatch Dealer will start the training on the appropriate level according to your
dog’s personality and traits. As training continues and your dog adjusts to the Hidden
Fence, the settings may need to be adjusted.
Multi-Tool
If you need to change the training level on the receiver,
hold the magnet on your Multi-Tool to the training level
adjustment location on the side of the receiver (see right).
Hold the magnet steady and you will hear a series of
beeps that indicate the current training level. The training
level will begin to advance while the magnet is held in
position. When you reach the desired setting, pull the
magnet away from the receiver.
Use the magnet to set the
training level on the Receiver.
The “Audible Only” level is one long beep, Level 1 = one short beep, Level 2 = two
short beeps, Level 3 = three short beeps, etc.
When the magnet activates the receiver, the number of beeps indicates the
current training level. As long as the magnet is held in place, it will advance
through the receiver training level settings in the order shown in the chart on
pg. 30. Note: Any magnet will activate the receiver.

Status Light
The status light on your SmartCollar provides these features.
•
Start-Up When you first insert the battery,
the status light will flash red and green.
This indicates that the receiver has started
properly. Once started, the status light will
continue to flash green once every 40 seconds
indicating normal operation. In the event that
the light does not flash, check the battery to be
sure that it has been inserted properly.
•
Training Level Indicator When programming the training level of your receiver, the
status light will flash green in conjunction with audible beeps. The number of flashes/
beeps will equal the training level you have chosen.
•
Signal Field Indicator When testing the receiver in the signal field, the status light
will flash green when the SmartCollar is in the audible zone and will flash red and
green when the SmartCollar is in the correction zone.
•
Correction Alert (TattleTale™) You will be able to tell if your pet has tested the
boundary by looking at the status light. The status light will double flash green every
40 seconds during the 24-hour period after the dog has entered the boundary area.
•
Battery Indicator This feature monitors the voltage level of the battery. Once the
SmartCollar detects that the battery has reached a low voltage level, the status light
will change from blinking green every 40 seconds to blinking red every 10 seconds.
This indicates that your battery is close to the end of its useful life and you should
change the battery within the next 3-4 days.
***Important***

For example: If the receiver is on Level 1 and the transmitter is on Rate 1, your dog will
receive the lowest level of correction and the least number of pulses per second.
Please, remember that if your Receiver Level is set to 1, 2, or 3 and you switch the Training
Mode to QuickAlert (Mode B), your training setting may change. For example, if the receiver
is set to Level 3 and the transmitter is set to Rate 1, your dog will receive a slow correction.
If you switch your Training Mode to QuickAlert, your dog will now receive a fast correction.
PROGRAMMING TIPS
Recommended Settings: The majority of dogs respond well to Transmitter Rate
Setting 2 or 3 and a Receiver Training Level 3, 4 or 5. Sensitive or small dogs that train
easily respond best to lower rate settings and lower training levels. If your dog is not
responding to training, your DogWatch Dealer will adjust your system to a higher training
level.
If Your Dog Is Hard To Train: Training Levels 5, 6 and 7 are specifically designed to meet
the needs of hard to train or stubborn dogs. These settings will provide the extra correction
that some dogs need as part of their training.
Multiple Dogs: Our receivers allow you to select individual settings for each dog.
This means that one SmartCollar can be set to Audible Only* during training while another
dog is still protected with the correction feature enabled. It is recommended that the
Audible Only* setting be used only during supervised training sessions.

FAQs
1. Can I use a SmartFence if I do not have Internet?
You can use the Hidden Fence (the containment part of the fence) without
the Internet.
The communication part of the system (notification alerts, system settings
and activity tracking) will not work without an Internet connection.
2. Can I use a SmartFence if I do not have a smartphone?
Yes, you can still get text message and/or email alerts and you can access
your SmartFence™ WebApp profile from any computer or other Internet
enabled device.
3. Is the SmartFence WebApp available on both iPhone and Android
devices?
Yes, the SmartFence WebApp works on both iPhone and Android devices.
The WebApp is not an “App” that you download in the App Store or Play
Store. Instead, it is a progressive web app, accessible via any internet
browser (Safari, Chrome, etc.).
The WebApp can be saved to the home screen of your mobile device for
easy access. For more information about how to access, setup and save the
WebApp, please see the WebApp setup instructions. (pg 7-11)
4. What happens when my dog’s SmartCollar travels out of range of
the Communication Portal?
The SmartCollar is designed with the understanding that your pet
will probably spend time in parts of the yard that may be beyond the
transmission range of your SmartFence Communication Portal.
That's OK!
If your dog is beyond the transmission range of the Portal when the collar
sends the hourly activity update, the activity data is not lost, it is stored inside
of the collar until the dog is back within range and the collar reconnects.
The collar will store up to 12 hours of activity data. When the collar
reconnects to the Portal, the stored data will be added to your activity
graph during the next hourly update.
The collar does not need to be in transmission range of the Portal for the
Hidden Fence to work. The Hidden Fence signal continues to work even
when the collar is not connected to Internet.

5. What will happen to my SmartFence™ if my Internet isn’t working?
The Hidden Fence (the containment part of the fence) is not dependent on
the Internet and will work as it should even if your Internet is turned 'off' or
not working. If your Internet is turned ‘off’ or not working, you will not receive
notification alerts, system settings and activity tracking until your Internet
connection is restored.
6. What if I do not have an extra Ethernet port on my router?
The SmartFence™ requires the use of an Ethernet port. You may be able
to add ports to your router by connecting it to an Ethernet switch. These
devices should be available at stores such as Staples® or Best Buy®.
TRAINING TIPS & REMINDERS
1.
Never call your dog to “come” or give a recall command when you are outside
the flag line.
2. Never walk your dog through the flags during the training process.
3. Always reinforce the retreat concept by shaking the flag while saying “Watch out!”
and commanding “back-back-back” when your dog receives an audible warning
or a correction during the training process.
4. Keep the training consistent: 15 to 20 minutes once or twice a day.
5. NEVER throw a stick or toy into the Avoidance Zone.
6. ALWAYS maintain a positive attitude when training your dog.
To prevent skin irritation, remove the collar at night and/or when not
in use. Check the neck area regularly for skin irritation.
