High Tech Pet Humane Electronic Dog Fence
I bought this for our 25lb dog with I think 3 extra wheels of wire to go around our 3 acres. At first it was awful getting our dog trained to stay away from it because the first phase is to lead your dog right up to the fence till they get their first warning shock.
I skipped through the steps a little. After doing the first phase a few times I pointed out the flags to the dog and shook them saying "no", so that she could make the connection that 'flag means shock'. Doing that step I skipped step/phase 2 and just let her loose while observing the dog and warning her when she got too close.
After just a few days we can now trust our dog on her own, but we do check on her occasionally just to be sure. So far we are very pleased with this product.

Only works with 1 of our dogs, plz help!!
I'm hoping to get some feedback, we put up our invisible fence about 2 months ago. We have 2 puppies, the boxer-corgi mix is about 10 months old, and our Pit bull is about 8 months old. Our boxer mix has no problems with the fence, however our Pit bull will walk right through it. We switched collars thinking maybe 1 was stronger then the other but it made no difference. Any suggestions? We are expecting our first baby soon and would like to be able to just open the front door and let them roam instead of having to leash them and put them into the actual gated area we do have, please help..

Pinch Collar on a small dog
I have a very active Dachshund mix, who was a nightmare to walk, to pulled and lunged at dogs and people, a trainer recommended the pinch collar, and we bought it. Now it wasn't a magic cure, but she definitely responded to the work better with the collar than without, she isn't a nightmare to walk anymore and now we enjoy getting out exercise together. This is a great tool to use in conjunction with patience and training. Love it!

Collar is a poor design.
The fence system works well and is effective, however, the collar does not have a switch to turn on and off. It has a hole that you have to stick a pointy object into in order to turn it on and off. BAD DESIGN! Our collar broke after 6 months. It won't charge and the switch is broken. I contacted High Tech a week ago and haven't heard a response. POOR CUSTUMER SERVICE! Don't buy it.
