Amazon.com Keep dogs over 8 pounds safely contained in the yard with this convenient wireless fence. Simply plug in the transmitter, and it emits a constant radio signal from an adjustable 5 to 90 feet in all directions. Full setup typically takes less than an hour, and no installation, no wire burying, and no stakes are required--ideal for portable installations or for people who relocate frequently. To begin, temporarily define the pet area with boundary flags for a visual aid in training the pet. The animal also wears a receiver collar with contact points touching the neck. When the pet strays into the warning zone, the receiver collar gives a warning beep. If the pet continues into the warning zone, a safe, static correction is delivered through the contact points until the animal returns to the safe pet area. The transmitter, which measures 8-1/2 inches by 9 inches by 9 inches, features an on/off switch, a boundary-control dial, a high/low switch, and a power indicator light. Measuring 1 inch by 2 inches by 1 inch, the waterproof receiver collar uses a 6-volt battery and includes interchangeable long and short contact points, a 25-second safety timeout, a screw-off cap covering the correction-level button, and a low-battery indicator light. The receiver's design also provides a concave interior wall (side facing the throat) and curved washers for comfort. The pet-containment system should be used with dogs six months or older, and a setup and training manual comes included. From the Manufacturer The PetSafe Premium Wireless Fence is a simple but effective containment system. A centrally located transmitter sends an adjustable radio signal up to a 90–foot radius (over half an acre) to a small, lightweight receiver on your pet's collar. While in the signal area, your dog is free to run and play. When the pet gets near the limit of the signal area, a warning beep is emitted from the collar. If your pet continues, a mild static correction is emitted to encourage the dog to stay in the safe zone. A Variety of Helpful Features Completely wireless system Signal field is spherical in nature, creating a circular boundary Covers an adjustable circular area of up to half an acre (180 feet in diameter) Should be mounted inside, 2 to 4 feet above the ground on a nonmetal surface Should be kept at least 3 feet away from the utility box or large appliances Maximum range is 90 feet from the transmitter or 90-foot radius Minimum range is 5 feet from transmitter Five adjustable levels of correction plus tone-only mode Designed not to correct during a power outage Receiver is constantly looking for a signal Will only correct when the receiver los

Love this product

posted 5 years ago

I bought this for my two large dogs last September and it is a blessing. They picked up on the concept very quickly, each were shocked once or twice and never again. The beep as the approach the boundries is enough to send them in the other direction. They enjoy being outside and wondering at their lesuire and I enjoy not haveing to untangle them and just letting them out!

Pros: Dogs can run and play without getting tangled in ropes

Cons: none

Only worked for about a year... then problems.

posted 6 years ago

This was a great investment - at first...

Really great since we travel with our dog to familly's homes... so wherever we went, we could always set up an outside boundary for our dog.

But after about a year... the collar would go off for no reason... became tempermental. It does have a lifetime warranty - but there are costs to getting it serviced (plus, you have to ship the unit out - so you have to be without it while it's being fixed.)

Pros: Portable

Cons: Stopped working - became tempermental after a year!!

I have 3 cats and they love this food. They eat less and walk away with a full belly. Eating less means pooping less and less litter. All around a great choice for my cats.
