A Radio Collar for Every Dog...
Sureguard has manufactured Wireless Dog Electric Fences in Australia since 1997. Sureguard pioneered using a digital transmission for its collars and solar power to run its boundary wire transmitter. We've utilised this advanced technology for over 20 years and we've continued to improve as electronics has advanced. Sureguard was granted two patents for innovative features you won't find elsewhere. All of this is to ensure your dogs are as safe as possible.
Do you have a small, medium or large size dog? No problem! The Sureguard collar is small and light weight covering neck sizes from 20cm to 62cm.
Do you have a stubborn dog or a sensitive dog or somewhere in between? No problem! The Sureguard collar automatically adjusts the correction according to your dog's behaviour. You can also set the collar correction manually to one of 10 levels.
How is my dog contained?
A boundary wire defines your dogs new limits. You adjust an activation distance on the collar which effectively creates a predictable no-go area around this wire. This no-go area is spilt into two zones. Your dog first encounters the outer zone. The collar emits a 3 second audible warning which gives your dog the opportunity to back away and stay contained. If ignored, the collar disciplines your dog with a static correction. This is intended as a reminder. In the unusual circumstance that your dog does not back away, the collar will present another 3 seconds of warning followed by another correction.
What happens if my dog ignores the warning?
When the inner zone is detected the 3 seconds warning is cancelled and the collar immediately disciplines your dog. The collar automatically selects the strength according to the number and frequency of escape attempts. So, if you have an obedient dog or a timid dog they will receive just enough correction for their behaviour. If you have a stubborn dog you can be assured that one of the 10 correction levels will provide enough persuasion. And, if you prefer, you can manually select the correction level.
How quickly will my dog learn to be contained?
Before you leave your dog on the system you need to train your dog to back-off in response to the warning sound. Training generally takes at about 50 minutes spread over 10 five minute sessions during the first 2 days. The collar is set to TRAIN which switches off the correction. Important: your dog must not feel the correction until training is complete. During the second half of day two you switch the collar to AUTO which switches on the correction. Then monitor your dog from a distance waiting for that first encounter with the fence. When your dog experiences that first correction you should see an immediate jumping back away from the boundary, just like you'e conditioned your dog to do with the training. Your dog will finish his own training as he explores his new limits.
How wide is the no-go area?
During installation you will adjust the activation distance on the collar to suit your dog's escape behaviour. For example, if your dog is a runner you'd generally select a longer distance. If your dog is jumping over a fence, the activation distance should be a little more that the height of the fence. For example, when jumping a 1.5m fence you'd select at about 2m. If your dog is a digger you can select the minimum distance (about 1m).
Better by Sureguard...
Sureguard's design focus was to achieve the highest success rate at a reasonable price.
- Collar is sealed against water and dust (IP Rating IP57). Suitable for swimming.
- Collar has 10 manually selectable correction levels. Maximum correction is 30 times stronger than minimum. (Some brands only have 1, 2 or 3 levels).
- Collar auto-mode setting learns your dog's behaviour and applies just the right amount of correction. (No guess work needed).
- Each dog on the system gets a customised correction level (as silly as it might seem, some systems give all dogs the same correction!).
- Correction level can be manually set for each dog, if you wish.
- Correction pulse has high fur penetration due to Sureguard's special electronics design.
- Correction monitor checks to ensure your dog felt the correction and notifies you in case fur gets in the way.
- Escape indicator registers attempted escapes during the last 10 hours. Know how your dog is behaving when you're not at home!
- Collar has an internal rechargeable battery that only needs a 3-hour recharge about every 6 months and includes a low battery indicator.
- The collar activation distance is fully adjustable from 1m to more than 4m.
- Each dog can have a different activation distance, which is useful if you have small and large dogs. (Some systems set all dogs to the same distance).
- Collar incorporates a handy five colour Status Light where the colour conveys the operating condition of the collar (see User Instructions for details).

Sureguard tested a wide range of brands and found all triggered. This should not be an issue.Does the fur need to be trimmed behind the collar?
Yes, especially during the initial learning phase. We need to be absolutely certain that fur does not prevent the correction from being felt. As the fur grows back, if it becomes too thick, your collar will indicate (via Status Light) if the correction is not being felt. If that happens, you know you need to regularly trim the fur behind the collar. Different breeds have different needs.
What is pressure necrosis?
Pressure necrosis is a skin condition that can develop if a collar is too tight or worn for extended periods of time. Imagine wearing shoes too small for you. The combined effect of pressure from the tight fit and rubbing from walking may eventually lead to sores on your feet. Something similar may happen for a collar on a dog's neck. The collar needs to be sufficiently firm to make contact with your dog's skin but not tight enough that the skin is under pressure.
Dogs with Sureguard collars rarely experience pressure necrosis. Two of our design features reduce the problem: 1/ The correction points on the rear of the Sureguard collar have a large diameter to reduce pressure, actually up to 70% less than some brands. 2/ The electronics in the Sureguard collar produces a correctional pulse that can tolerate a small gap between the skin and collar so the correction can still be felt with some fur growth. So, why don't other brands do the same? Simply cost; the Sureguard design costs more to produce to achieve this performance gain.Why do you not have a dedicated stronger "stubborn dog" collar?
Sureguard manufacture one collar that works for all dogs, whether sensitive or stubborn. This "stubborn dog" feature is already built into the Sureguard collar. You don't need to buy a more expensive model simply because you have a bigger problem!
My dog escaped and when it came back would not cross the boundary, why?
If your dog is so motivated to leave it may decide the correction is worth putting up with. In other words, his desire of the reward is stronger than his avoidance of the correction. On the way back his desire to get back to the house is not as strong as his avoidance of the correction. If this behaviour persists, contact Sureguard as we have a proven technique to change the balance between his level of desire and avoidance of the correction.
How do I allow my dog to cross the boundary when going for walks?
To go for walks, develop a pattern of interaction with your dog.
- Show your dog the walking lead.
- In an up beat tone tell your dog it is time for going walks "GOING WALKS".
- Attach the lead to your dog's usual collar.
- Remove the radio collar.
- Show your dog the radio collar and again in an up beat tone say "GOING WALKS".
- Leave the radio collar behind.
- Cross the boundary at the same spot every time you leave for walks and always on the lead. NEVER allow your dog to cross the boundary while off the lead.
- Follow the reverse procedure on the return. Remember to tell other family members to follow your routine.
Important: During the initial training period you must NOT allow your dog to walk across the boundary as it may reduce the effectiveness of the training. Instead, remove the collar and leave your property by car. Wait a few weeks to ensure your dogs behaviour is stable before going walks as described above.
