Rated 4 out of 5 by clmmks Works great for me
I purchased the Play+Stay unit about 3 years ago and it has worked great at our rocky, wooded hunting cabin. I have an Irish Setter that just LOVES to run for hours, and there was no catching her. She learned quickly on this containment system, and has never violated it. It finally broke down about 2 months ago. Even though it no longer works, if I put the collar on my dog, she assumes she can't leave that area and doesn't test it. I'm purchasing a new one for security, as hunting season is almost here and I need to know that she is safely in her zone. I wish the containment area would reach a little further. I wish it was possible to send the unit back for repair, or purchase a refurbished one. All in all, this works great for what I need.

Rated 1 out of 5 by proudowner1 petsafe does not last for $300 only lasts 1 years
It's very unfortunate, this has been a great product. However the warranty is only one year, the product does not last much more than a year. The company will not repair or sell refurbished. So for $300 / year it's very expensive.
The upside is that it kept my Aussie,Lab home and he is a very friendly 85 lb dog. He has colors like a deer and I have to keep him home during hunting season.

Rated 1 out of 5 by freyka Expensive and Hard to Use
I found the same problems as others have mentioned; it's hard to set a boundary that doesn't go to your neighbor's yard without having enough room for your puppy to play. In addition, it's very expensive. This proves that you don't get something better just because you pay more. We have a German Short Haired Pointer and she is very fast. We have tried training over and over again, but when she gets out, she is so fast that the shock nor the beeping phase her one bit. She's been out and runs for hours before we can catch her. The bad thing about this also is the collar itself can't be controlled to give her a light shock by a remote control, which I believe would be very helpful to have a 2 in 1 use for this collar. So now I have a $400 product sitting in my house that doesn't work and I can't return it because I was delayed with personal items in my life to get it set up within the guarantee window. I think for very small dogs this might be useful, but not for a dog with any kind of speed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Graham Over All Nice Product
This product has actually worked well for me, I have property with a lot of rock so digging an unground fence was going to be a challenge. It didn't take long at all to train my dog on it. I do feel like its a little overpriced but it did however save me a lot of time and energy. Nice product overall.
