Reviews of the original Link app on playstore & Release of Link Version II

We want to point out that the reviews online at the playstore for the original Link version 1 app are not very good at all and for good reason.
The original version of the app became very unstable with certain phones particularly on the android platform.
To resolve these and other issues that customers have mentioned over the past 2 years, the Pet Stop Link development team has completely rebuilt a new App using a much better programming platform that will accomodate the growth and enhancement of Link features.
We are very pleased to announce that Link Version II has been released and is available for download on both iPhone and Android platforms. 
We are extremely thankful for all of our Link EcoLite Customers old and new for their patience as we have worked through the challenges of developing an app that revolutionizes the electronic pet containment industry.
With that said the new app still has some growing pains related to some Android phones that Pet Stop continues to work on daily.
Talk with us to determine in Link is a fit for your situation. If not, the EcoLite HO is the same exact receiver without Link and is a great alternative if you want a rechargeable receiver with diagnostic testing capability.

 *** Please be aware of this fact if you are comparing our prices with invisible fence® brand.

Invisible fence® brand batteries cost $700-$1000 per dog receiver over 10 years of use to maintain their warranty and operation of their system.

There is no way invisible fence® brand can beat our price for any Pet Stop® system if you add the cost of a 10 year supply their proprietary batteries to their proposal.

Whether you want a new Hidden Fence system installed or need service on your existing Invisible Fence® Brand system by an independent service provider, Hidden Fence of Minnesota is a great choice! We also provide cross compatible batteries and receiver collars for existing Invisible Fence® Brand owners. Hidden Fence of Minnesota is a direct competitor of, and is not associated with, the Invisible Fence®Brand Companny.

The Truth about Extended Duration Corrections 

If you are considering purchasing the competitor’s system, Invisible Fence® Brand, you should be aware that their main feature (Boundaries Plus®) continuously shocks your pet for 10, 20, or 30 seconds if they leave the yard . This is animal cruelty any way you slice it!  

The reality is that extended corrections are not necessary to contain most dogs. A stronger correction that your pet respects and is conditioned to avoid is the BEST and most humane approach. 

Since the very beginning in the 1970’s when Invisible Fence® Brand fencing was introduced it has never required more than 2 seconds of correction to stop the most stubborn of breed.

The idea of the “endless” boundary by shocking your dog for 10 seconds is purely a marketing scheme that was introduced by our competitor in the early 2000’s when Boundaries Plus®was introduced by Invisible Fence®Brand. 

Also, it is very important to note that any dog that has endured a 10 second correction while trying to leave the yard will never try to leave the yard again. This fact alone completely nullifies the idea or need for a “Free pass” back into the yard.

The dangers of systems that continuously shock are far more likely to occur such as the accidental infliction of this to your pet if you forget to take the collar off your dog when leaving in your car as you back out of your driveway.

Not only will your beloved pet experience this horror due to your unintentional mistake but you will be subject to a very dangerous distracted driving situation due to the chaos and confusion resulting from this.

Another significant hazard from these systems can occur if the polarity gets changed when your fence line is repaired and the yard becomes “hot” rather the outside the boundary without you being aware of this. You likely will not even understand what has happened when your pet experiences the intense discomfort from this error.

The Safest Solution is GentleSteps™ Certified Training 

Once a dog has completed GentleSteps™ training, if an extended correction advanced training session is needed to contain a particularly stubborn dog (1 in 100), Pet Stop® has designed patented features to be used in a safe & controlled environment that will stop even the most determined escape artist dogs.

Although this is rarely needed, extended correction training will give a stubborn dog the “one time experience” that will solve this problem while maintaining the patented Pet Stop® safety features that prevent extended corrections from occurring with our systems.

The History of GentleSteps™ 

In 2001, a very good friend of ours, Hidden Fence of New Jersey Owner & Industry Renowned Dog Trainer Rich Weinssen, revolutionized the pet containment industry with the most gentle training process ever seen in this field.

Rich’s approach begins at low, tickle levels for conveying location information, and then a progressive increase in pressure once the dog learns and is challenged with real life distractions. This gentle process was introduced publicly at the March 2002 International Association of Canine Professionals (IACP) annual meeting.

We Provide Compatible Products & Service For All Brands

We have many clients who originally purchased other brands, including Invisible Fence®Brand, PetSafe®, DogWatch® and more. We have compatible products which will integrate with Invisible Fence®, PetSafe® and DogWatch® systems. We also supply batteries which were designed by Pet Stop engineer Scott Touchton (former chief engineer with the Invisible Fence®Brand) and John Purtell, the original Founder of Invisible Fence®Brand, who is now the Founder and President of Perimeter Technologies® and President of the dealer exclusive Pet Stop® Brand.  Ironically, John even coined the term “Invisible Fence”®Brand back in the 1970s.

Today, while the brand remains in the industry, the protected term Invisible Fence®Brand is also commonly used as a generic term for Hidden Fence systems. Our own clients sometimes use the term “Invisible Fence®” Brand in a generic sense to describe the fence we installed. Again, we are not associated in any way with the Invisible Fence®Brand Company.

Hidden Fence of Minnesota offers the most competitive prices in the industry for the services and guarantees we provide. Our staff is educated and extremely knowledgeable about the latest products and trends in electronic pet fencing and our collective goal is to create completely satisfied customers with every opportunity that comes our way.
