I love my wireless pet containment system. I have two strong, but super sweet pit bulls & they have been able to be outside freely as they like with this system. I have never had an issue with them running through the perimeter. When they hear the beep warning, they turn around a go back the other way. It even keeps them from chasing deer outside the perimeter & that is incredible because they really want to chase them when they come onto our property. Some of the best money I have spent. Also, PetSafe customer service is excellent. Always friendly & helpful. They put the service back in customer service!!
The PetSafe electric fence did not hurt my dog. It just caught his attention, and let him know he was not supposed to be climbing the fence or trying to jump over it. It was also very easy to install and the directions were simple and easy to follow. It was very effective in keeping my dog in the fenced in yard. I would recommend it to a friend. However, it did not last as long as I expected. It stretched out and did not stay tight around the top of the fence. We had to keep going out every few weeks to tighten it back around the top of our original fence.
With a little digging, it is rather simple to put up the boundaries underground. It's easier done with someone who is a professional at installing these things but either way it's not too hard to do and doesn't cost too much money either. PetSafe works very well for my dog. She used to runaround when I let her outside loose and it got her into some real trouble. It's the best fence I ever had the pleasure of owning. It's taught my dog to be more well behaved and obedient and she never is bad anymore. Now she stays within the electric fence boundaries and knows not to go any further than she's allowed. It's great and would recommend it to people that asked.
My dog can go outside and do his business and enjoy the outdoors free of restraint and still stay on my property. Makes him feel a bigger part of the family and he can enjoy being with us and not feel like he's being punished by being on a chain or leash. If he steps out of bounds he gets an impulse shock which makes him come back. However, I would suggest longer yardage coverage. Price could be more available in my budget but I know it costs to build them but I really do think that we can figure out another way other than scaring my dog from the noise it permits. Also really needed to pay attention to the instructions. But PetSafe is easy to use and it definitely was worth the money.
I like not having to worry about my dog running out of the yard without having to put up a fence. It gives more than enough distance for her to run and has a comfortable collar. Very easy to set up and operate on a daily basis. It took me about 45 mins to set up. And to operate it only takes memorizing a couple imaged buttons. I just wish that there was a way to keep the pet in the yard without having to subject them to that painful shock. I've tried it on myself and it hurts.

Non-harming but effective enclosure. The dogs didn't seem to really notice it that much so it didn't scare them, thankfully. Looks better than most of the other fences in the store, and better than paying a couple thousand to install a privacy fence. It's fairly easy to install, some nuisances with the batteries and wires but nothing I couldn't handle, kind of a ridiculous look once it's all done if you don't pay attention to what you're doing. However, I dislike the bulky collar/generic looking casing, my neighbors all thought I was building a landing pad for alien invaders and the kids in the area keep taking pieces of the fence. Should be more secure in the ground.
The PetSafe fence was used for my chocolate lab dog - it surrounded the yard and collar keep the dog in the yard. It did a great job and my dog did very well with it. I really liked the fence.
I really like this dog fence. Moderately easy to set up, you plug in the box and have to test the boundary line. For in town yards it can be tricky to make sure they aren't going into the neighbor's yard but yet still have plenty of room to run. The batteries tend to die very quickly too and need replaced often. We have also had a glitch with our collars where they weren't allowing them to go as far as they should have been and would shock them. Other than those, lots of options for shock zone and strength of shock. The collars are also adjustable and not too bulky.
It was very easy to install the fence and it keeps my dog from leaving the area that I need him to stay when I let him play in the yard. The collar will help you get and keep your dog within the borders of the property line or deal with the shock from the collar. It is an interesting piece of equipment cause it keeps my dog safe and others as well. There is not anything about this that is totally unsafe too.
All you have to do is set the prongs in the yard where you need them. Plug in the sensor and then place the collars snugly on the dog. When you're done just let them roam. It is effective and I can easily turn it on and off when needed. It was affordable and easy to buy extra collars too. PetSafe goes above and beyond my expectations and I believe it is the best value for the money. I haven't had another electric fence like it and I have used a lot.
