Rated 3 out of 5 by MplsP Works fine - except for the wire
I purchased and installed this system a few years ago. We spent the time training our dog and it worked perfectly for about 2 years. Then we would intermittently get alarms that the wire was broken. When checking the fence with an ohm meter, sometimes it would be an open circuit, sometimes not. I purchased a break detector and it detected no breaks, but after checking it, the fence would start working again. Long story short, the wire they include in the kit is not rated for use underground and after a couple years, the insulation degrades and the wire starts corroding, developing small micro cracks. We finally ended up paying Hidden Fence to bury a new wire - now the system is working perfectly again.
Bottom line - the fence system and collar works well, but pay some extra money and get appropriate wire - you'll be happy you did in the long run.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tomhebermehl I love this fence
I have installed a similar fence previously so I knew to install exactly as directed in the booklet. Yes, it took over a holiday weekend, but it works perfectly and the 2 puppies have accepted it well. I had to kick up the correction level immediately, but after only one week, they are running the perimeter off leash.
