In a perfect world, there would be no need for a fence. Our dogs would run free, graciously approaching other dogs who would greet them with a tail wag instead of teeth. They would never chase a squirrel. They would always come home when called, tired and panting from a long run. Unfortunately, we don’t live in a perfect world. There are thousands of dangers that lurk in the shadows for dogs who escape a yard. Microchips and collar identification helps, the internet helps, fencing helps. But the bottom line is that you must keep your pets contained. Of course, we prefer regular fencing, but that’s not always possible. Some yards are too big, or there are HOA requirements that prohibit fencing. That’s where the Motorola WIRELESSFENCE25 Wireless Fence for Home or Travel comes into play. This is a wireless fencing system that is so flexible, you can use it anywhere you need to set up a confined perimeter, including indoors (to keep pets from raiding litter boxes) or outdoors while traveling (i.e., camping).

FTC Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. We have received compensation. While PetsWeekly prefers positive training approaches, we understand that some people require alternative methods of controlling their pets. If you are one of these people, we bring you this information so that you may make a good choice in acquiring a high-quality product that will not harm your dogs. This product is NOT for use with cats or other species, nor does it work well with dogs under 20 lbs.

This unique containment solution uses a small wireless transmitter that creates a circular boundary to protect your pet and keep him from wandering. With tone only and fifteen levels of static correction, from very gentle to firm, the Motorola Wireless Fence has just the right touch to meet the needs of most any dog’s personality.

HOA Restrictions

There are many housing developments that do not allow you to put up fencing, and we’re seeing these more frequently. The Scout Wireless Fence has up to 1 acre circular coverage area (when there is a clear line of sight between wireless fence unit and collar unit).

Large Properties

On properties that are an acre or more, it can be very cost-prohibitive to fence. The Scout allows you to select a virtual fence range of up to 150 feet from the transmitter. (Motorola states it is “line of site”, which means that any obstacles like trees, hills, houses, sheds, etc may limit the range and effectiveness of the fence system). There is no digging required with the Motorola Scout 25, so the install is incredibly simple.

While Camping

Setting up a virtual circular range around your camp lets your dog experience freedom while keeping them close by. After the initial training period at home, dogs quickly learn to respond to the warning tone, which helps make this an effective system for containing your pet while you’re traveling.

Use Indoors

If your dog loves to enter rooms where they are not allowed, the wireless fenceScout 25 is a great way to modify this behavior. This is a great way to keep your dog out of the litter box, out of the kitchen, or away from the kitchen or baby’s bedroom. Just set up a virtual area within the home, and after initial training, your dog will learn to respect clearly established boundaries.

How it Works

Dogs quickly learn to respond to a warning tone but there will be some initial training required. The manual includes very clear and simple to understand directions. After the initial training period at home, dogs quickly learn to respond to the warning tone, meaning your dog will not experience any static correction and you can safely take them to any location without worry.

Levels of Correction

You can set the collar to a gentle audible warning beep, an ultrasonic beep, or any one of 15 levels of static correction. You may also want to consider the 50 series model of this wireless fence, which includes a walkie-talkie feature that allows you to speak to your dog through a remote.

Battery Life

  • Collar battery life: up to 96 hours depending on usage
  • Fence unit battery life: up to 48 hours depending on usage

Other Collars that are Available:

  • Scout Trainer 50 (includes a walkie-talkie feature)
  • Scout Collar 50PU (extra collar for the trainers)
  • Scout Zone 50 (adds training remote plus walkie-talkie feature)
  • Training 200U (includes ultrasonic)
  • Scout Bark 100 (basic “bark” collar, allowing for 5 seconds of “natural” barking before correction)
