Gifts from DogWatch!
Did you know that our nearly 200 independent DogWatch dealerships are 100% locally owned and operated? You can shop small this holiday season by contacting your local DogWatch Dealer, and asking them about our two new Indoor Boundary products!
Mobile Indoor/Outdoor Boundaries From DogWatch®
DogWatch®’s Mobile Boundaries MB-1 and MB-2 are quiet, effective, and stay hidden from view. The MB-1 is a versatile, waterproof, rechargeable, battery-operated mobile boundary that can be used indoors or outdoors to create a pet-free zone. This wireless boundary is easy to set up wherever you need it. The MB-1 creates a pet-free zone up to 8 feet in diameter (4 feet from the center).
The MB-2 is a flexible indoor mobile solution that can be used with or without a boundary wire. When used with a boundary wire you can define the off-limits space, including entire rooms. Without a boundary wire, the MB-2 creates a pet-free zone up to 13 feet in diameter.
If you’re looking for a portable boundary to protect your holiday decorations or Christmas tree, or any other area you want to keep pet-free (trash can, a new couch, flower gardens, etc.), these boundaries are a perfect choice. They also work seamlessly with ALL DogWatch® FM receivers.
Indoor Cat Boundaries
Cat lovers, don’t worry, we didn’t forget you. We’re proud to announce our first indoor pet containment system designed just for cats! The CAT200 Transmitter and CR7 Receiver work in concert to keep your cats safe and out of trouble – and out of the places cats should not be. As an added bonus, the CR7 Receiver also works seamlessly with our outdoor systems, like the ProFence. Protect your furniture, your plants, and your sanity with an indoor cat fence from DogWatch.

Happy Holidays from all of us at DogWatch! Best wishes for a peaceful, safe and happy new year.
