AngelaKerry Wireless Dog Fence with GPS (Review)
A wireless dog fence without a transmitter? With the AngelaKerry Wireless Dog Fence with GPS, you can now say goodbye to bulky transmitters or separate remote controllers. Everything is packed on the small collar, making it the Best GPS wireless dog fence in the market.
We personally bought this wireless fence last year out of curiosity. We’ve been seeing it since 2018, and we finally gave in. Below, we discuss our experience of using this on our dog and what you can expect from it.
Overview: AngelaKerry Wireless Dog Fence With GPS
The AngelaKerry Wireless Dog Fence is powered by a global positioning system. Unlike traditional systems that use radio signals, this model from AngelaKerry receives signal feed from overhead satellites.
What does this mean? It means that it can cover a wider range of up to 800 meters in a circular boundary. Also, this wireless GPS fence can overcome steep slopes and other uneven terrains. For those living in massive acreages with hills, this might be the wireless fence that will do the job. Read fence for hills
However, there’s a catch on this wireless fence. Since it uses GPS signals, it won’t work well if the area has tall buildings, dense trees, and similar blockages. Also, cloudy, snowy, and rainy conditions will impact the signal stability. The signal and range will also reset once your dog enters an indoor setting.
Overall, these are reasonable tradeoffs compared to the convenience and range you’ll enjoy. It’s also a budget-friendly wireless fence that you can use just about anywhere.

The AngelaKerry Wireless Dog Fence with GPS has the following key features:
- No transmitters. Thanks to GPS technology, you no longer have to set or charge a separate transmitter. You only have to set the range on the collar, and you’re good to go. There’s no second guessing about the location because you can use it anywhere.
- Minimal margin of error. Based on our experience, the margin of error of this wireless dog fence with GPS is less than 10 meters. It’s quite impressive for a GPS collar with this price range.
- Refund guarantee. We never had to return our unit, but AngelaKerry offers a 90-day refund guarantee upon the receipt of the product. This makes the wireless fence a no-risk purchase.
- Suitable for small to large breeds. The receiver collar of this wireless fence has an adjustable strap that fits dogs weighing 15 lbs. to 120 lbs.
- Adjustable correction level. AngelaKerry managed to program 5 levels of static shock on its small collar. This is a big deal for me because our clients purchased more expensive units from JUSTPET and OKPET without this function.
- Auto-correction cycle. The collar will automatically start its 7-step correction cycle the moment your dog gets too near the boundaries. It ensures that your dog will go back to safety.
What we like
The AngelaKerry Wireless Dog Fence is the first GPS containment system we ever bought. While we have some minor niggles (more on this below), we’re quite impressed with its performance.
First, we use this whenever we’re camping with our dog. It also comes in handy whenever we’re taking our dog to the acreages once we’re commissioned to install a fence. It works seamlessly as long as the weather permits.
Aside from that, it has an automatic correction cycle that pairs the adjustable shock intensity very well. It starts with sound warnings then with added shock if your dog breaches the collar. Each correction cycle has a one-second break to give your dog the chance to run back to safety. Please read here How fast can a dog run
I also like how easy it is to set up this wireless fence. You have to go to the center of your intended boundary to set the range. There’s a small display on the collar plus four buttons. Just note that ‘10’ is equivalent to ‘100 meters’.
Overall, the collar is IP66 waterproof that remains functional even as our dog soaks on the lake. However, he receives a stronger shock on water, so we avoid setting the boundary limits too near on the shore.
This comes with a built-in battery, so there’s no need to spend for replacements, unlike some PetSafe models.
What we don’t like
We really don’t have major problems with the AngelaKerry Wireless Dog Fence with GPS. Nevertheless, we have a few – and quite nitpicky – observations.
AngelaKerry markets this fence with a 20-hour operation per charge. However, it’s less than what we get, but we don’t consider it a big deal. Besides, a 10-hour continuous runtime is more than enough for our dogs.
Charging this fence is also easy since it connects to power banks and laptops in case wall outlets aren’t handy.
Aside from that, this containment system doesn’t come with marker flags. It’s not really an issue if you’re using this for travel. But if you want to use it as a backyard fence, you may need to improvise with DIY flag stakes.
Like I mentioned above, this fence won’t work well if it’s rainy or cloudy. Anything that blocks the sky will impact its signal. Nevertheless, we have great luck during the summertime here in Calgary as we get mostly clear skies. Winter here can get long, so we keep our trusty PetSafe wireless fences in place still.
The AngelaKerry Wireless Dog Fence System with GPS is an excellent find for its price. It’s portable, easy to set up, and offers a massive range. However, you have to check the weather and avoid places with major overhead blockages. Other than that, this system will work seamlessly.
In our experience, the AngelaKerry Wireless Fence is an excellent choice for traveling or bringing our dog to acreages. We also plan to purchase a second collar to test on our other pet.
