"We had a great experience with Canine Concepts. Eric was quick to respond, knowledgeable and very pleasant to work with. We have a system installed by another vendor that was not working. He came out to evaluate on the same day I called, and was back to repair (we had to rewire the yard) the day after that. I will gladly refer Eric and Canine Concepts to anyone looking for an electric dog fence."

"I had the pleasure of meeting Eric today to have him repair our (dog) fence. It wasn't easy to find the breaks, but he did, even going into the woods behind the yard! He patiently schooled me on what had caused the problem (btw, a different company had installed our fence about 13 years ago), and expertly put it all back together. Pleasant, friendly, efficient. I highly recommend him!"

Electric Dog Fence Repair
We use a solid core wire and a thick gauge to do the job right for our dog fence installations and repairs. This means that it is suitable for our New England winters and many, many years of use!
If your underground dog fence is not working properly, it can only be a few things. The most common reason for a malfunctioning dog fence is a break in the underground wire that goes around your property and connects to a transmitter box. If the wire has been accidentally cut or has been compromised by cracks or erosion of the once protected copper, the system will not operate. Wired dog fences need a continuous loop to operate and any break in the boundary wire or the twist wire will render the system useless.
If you do not know where the wire break is, the most difficult part of the repair can be locating the actual break. We use a special device that helps us to facilitate a quick and efficient repair!
Contact us and we will ask you some basic questions over the phone to try and diagnose the problem. Sometimes it is just a setting on the transmitter box or, as one person found out, it was just unplugged! We have heard stories of people that have searched for hours on end for a wire break and the real problem was very simple to solve.

Are you moving?
Congrats on your new home! When you move from your house with a hidden dog fence to one without, you will need to reinstall the wire into the ground. It is too labor intensive to rip up the old wire and will be unsightly for the new owners. We provide wire installation for you regardless of what dog fence system you have. Some companies are no longer in business or maybe you had a bad experience with another...we can help you install the new wire.
You already own the control box and collar for your dog so that can come with you. Also, the wire you leave behind at your previous home could be a selling point to a new owner with a dog. All they need to do is purchase a new transmitter box and collar. The wire is already in the ground! We offer a service for this and the dog fence training if they need it!
