What makes Pet Stop® the best pet fence manufacturing company?

… It’s the people.

No other system can match the range of patented, customizable features and expert training offered by Pet Stop dealers. Each Dealer is an expert in pet fencing. SafeYard™ training is a Pet DeFence exclusive. The LiNK® EcoLite® rechargeable receiver and its diagnostic charger are also exclusive to Pet Stop. Our customizable systems produce a 99.6% successful containment rating – the highest in the industry.

The difference is reflected every day in the spirit that drives Pet Stop in everything they do. From product design to custom configuration to installation and training, they work hard to deliver a superior solution that works gently but effectively for you and your pet. Happy, healthy pets are their inspiration.

Everyone at Pet Stop is in one way or another an “old dog” in this business. In fact, the management team at Pet Stop has over 75 years of combined experience and the Pet DeFence team has 50 combined years. Pet Stop and Pet DeFence are truly “The Dog Fence Experts”. And they stand behind a pet-containment solution that is simply superior to any other.

… It’s because of the nationwide dealer network.

Not only does Pet Stop have some of the most experienced pet-boundary professionals in the business; they are particularly proud of the fact that 75 percent of them were previously with competing manufacturers.

What does all this say about the Pet Stop brand? The dealers know a superior dog fence when they see it and have opted to offer their valued customers the most responsible, advanced and safest dog fence on the market today. Call it a sense of duty to your pet’s safety or just plain smart business, but over 100 dealers moving to Pet Stop® brand from Invisible Fence® brand, Dog Watch®, PetSafe® Professional and others speaks volumes.

… It’s because Pet Stop is designed and manufactured in the US.

Pet Stop brand is the only hidden fence product Made in the USA from imported components. Pet DeFence proudly sells only this premium product.

Pet Stop pioneered and patented many of the features incorporated in our equipment that protect your pet and bring you peace of mind. Best of all, the design team resides in Pennsylvania, where the product is manufactured. Their people are pet lovers who understand the importance of making a superior product and relish the role they play in helping to keep your pet safe. It’s why they place so much emphasis on pursuing product development. When you select Pet Stop, you’ll experience a unique brand of pet containment.



… It’s because of our founder.

John Purtell, a nationally recognized business leader founded the Invisible Fence® brand in 1976. He built it into what it is today. He once earned an esteemed spot as a finalist with Inc. Magazine’s  “Entrepreneur of the Year”.  John sold his interest in the Invisible Fence® brand in 1993. In 2002 Invisible Fence® brand was bought by venture capitalists who laid-off employees, closed the plant in Pennsylvania, and moved production to China.  Eyeing an opportunity to return to the industry he’d help create, John hired back laid-off workers and brought back jobs and production to the USA.

Former Chief Engineer of the Invisible Fence® brand, Scott remains a leader in pet containment. He has composed several patents while overseeing the development of numerous products that have gone on to define the industry standard. Scott is a crucial part of developing Pet Stop’s innovative and groundbreaking designs.
