This system is safe and effective for all hard-to-train pets. The PetSafe In-Ground Radio Fence has been proven safe, comfortable, and effective for hard-to-train pets over 8 pounds. The system works delivering mild static correction through two contacts points on a receiver collar your dog wears on his neck. You'll need to install an underground fence by burying the included boundary wire and flags. Your pet is allowed to freely roam within a safe area that you establish. If your pet crosses the established barrier, a correction will be sent to get your pet's attention, but will not harm him. The collar also features a tone plus vibration only mode for effective pet training.

Features:

  • Covers up to 10 acres with additional wire and flags*
  • System includes enough boundary wire and flags to cover 1/3 acre
  • Receiver designed for stubborn or hard to train pets
  • Five progressive levels of correction
  • Low battery indicator flashes when battery gets low
  • Tone plus vibration only mode for training
  • UltraLight Receiver with adjustable collar

System includes:

  • Transmitter w/ Power Adapter
  • UltraLight Receiver with adjustable, waterproof collar (6.5-oz waterproof dog collar adjusts from 6" - 28")
  • Wire Nuts
  • Test Light Tool
  • 9-Volt Alkaline Battery
  • 20 Gauge Boundary Wire - 500 feet
  • 50 Training Flags (enough for 1/3 acre
  • Operating & Training Guide

Other items you may need for installation:
Additional boundary wire and flags (dependable upon perimeter), tape measure, small phillips screwdriver, drill and mounting hardware, shovel or lawn edger, pliers, wire stripping pliers, scissors, lighter, electrical tape, additional wire nuts, waterproofing compound (e.g. silicone caulk), PVC pipe or water hose, circular saw with masonry blade, patching compound, staple gun, non metallic collar and leash.

Additional boundary wire:
PetSafe recommends the use of 20 gauge insulated multi-strand copper wire for direct burial. The following indicates the approximate length of boundary wire needed for a rectangular, single-loop layout. Length will vary due to the amount of twisted wire and layout used.

  • 1/4 Acre: 415 feet of wire needed
  • 1/3 Acre: 480 feet of wire needed
  • 1/2 Acre: 590 feet of wire needed
  • 1 Acre: 835 feet of wire needed
  • 2 Acres: 1180 feet of wire needed
  • 5 Acres: 1870 feet of wire needed
  • 10 Acres: 2800 feet of wire needed

PetSafe® Stubborn Dog In-Ground Fence is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Take your time, Take your time, figure where your going to use it, and put a LONG screw drive through the spool of wire before you undo it to roll it out and have something to layout the pathway where your going to lay the wire and rocks or something to hold the wire down to the ground until you got it dug in, do the complete yard, to make a path out from the house, like it says, twist the wires together and that makes a "neutral area" , My Dobies watched us do the yard, the flags go in and we talked about it, (Male and Female) I had to use 2 and half a spool of wire to do my complete yard, and I bought the "lightning arrester" (loop protector) and I have NOT had to buy another transmitter again, due to lightning strikes, which are not the fault of Pet Safe, but this device has saved my transmitter.. The dogs left the yard once, yelled when they went through, and I had to take the collars off to get them back in the yard and they have not left the yard since in 6 years

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our great Dane got shocked once and has never tried crossing again even while playing with the neighbor dogs that live next door without a fence.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective My dog was the worst for breaking out. We have a split rail fence and she'd go under it or would jump over. We'd chase her up and Down the street---it was so frustrating. One shock from this system was all it took. She won't try to pass even when the gate is open and the dollar is off. For bigger dogs, expect them to run through the first time. But they definitely remember the shock for the neck time. My husband felt the shock on five and it wasn't bad--just unpleasant. Just enough for the dog to not want to try it a second time. Try the collar on setting three first. Setting five was way to high for my dog.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from terrible product...and here's why..... SO FRUSTRATED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!..We had to install using the "loop" instructions as we only wanted 3 sides of our backyard to be covered. First of all, after finally figuring out what we really needed to do, we started the layout. The spool of wire is the cheapest thing I have ever seen in my life. It came apart, therefore causing we were even half way done and all of the wire spilled off. Well, that was a mess because it immediately tangled. Seriously took over 2 hours to straighten before we could continue. So, if that wasn't enough...We get the thing up and are getting ready to see if it will work and we cant get the collar unit open to install the battery. It has 4 of the most tiny screws you have ever seen and one of them came stripped out. So.....the store was OUT so they could not replace it immediately and had to order one. So, it was a few days before we could even find out if it worked. Now, the signal doesn't work. No warning radius at all. Arrrrrrgggggghhhhh..... It might be going back if we cant get it to work. I would NEVER buy this...EVER

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to set up and use I got this to keep my overgrown puppy in my yard, Its the best! It took a couple slight zaps before he realized his safe area but it was a great buy! We can let him out when we are home without the collar on and he still stays in the safe zone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Life for Our Dogs Have used this same product for 7 yrs. Our big dogs enjoy 2acres of pure freedom - have never once tried to break out or had other dogs try to enter. Our elec fence is hanging on a 3-board fence around our property and our dogs stop at ten ft from perimeter fence. For 30 yrs previously, in another location, we tried to keep up with same breed digging out or jumping over kennel fences and property line fences. Constant battle and burden. Pet Safe Elec Fence instantly improved our dogs’ lives and our lives 100%! Will always use this product in future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Swapped out Invisible Fence brand, works great! We opted to buy this and use with our existing inground wire we had installed by the Invisible Fence brand representative about 5 years ago. The Invisible Fence receiver had stopped working, so we started looking for a less expensive replacement. It was easy to switch the receivers located in our garage and adjust settings ourselves. Collar is a bit on the heavy side, but works great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great, easy set up! We set aside a weekend to put in the fence and start training our dog. Two hours after we began we had it up and running! The hardest part was running the wire into the house since we put the transmitter in our basement, but even that only took maybe a half an hour with two of us. The collar was easy to change levels of intensity for training. We have a 6 month old goldendoodle who knew basic commands when we put the fence in. On day one I walked him around the yard and showed him the boundaries with just the vibration level on the collar. I did that about three times around the yard going towards the boundary about every 10 feet. The next day I added the static correction and adjusted it to a point that worked for him. That happened to be the third level. Later that day I had let him out without supervision and he's done great since. We have a third of an acre and had enough wire to do a circle around our entire yard and run it to the house. Great alternative to paying someone else to do the job! Highly recommended!

How do you run the wire to protect just 3 sides of your property ?

Asked by: LaneDawg
Hi Lane, thanks for your question! You will need to set up what is called a double loop. You will start at your transmitter, run the wire around all three sides, and double back around all three sides with that same wire to the transmitter, ensuring that it is at least 5-6 feet away from the first line. For layout assistance, please reach out to our Customer Care Team at 1-800-732-2677.

I have gated areas (dogs can get under) around my backyard. I need to "fence" off 5 separate areas that are 10-20 ft in width each. So I would have to cut wire. How do I do this?  

Asked by: Allicorinne
Great question! To do this, you will need to run a "double loop layout" to ensure that the fence is only active in the areas you wish to keep them away from. We can absolutely discuss this with you further to help you decide on the best product and layout for your needs. Give us a call when you can at the number 1-800-732-2677 for further assistance.

What is the effect of snow on top of an underground fence?

Asked by: isaacdavis
Hi Isaac, great question! The snow will not affect your in-ground containment system. If you are expecting more than 3 feet of snow, you may need to adjust your range dial up a bit.

I have a chain link fence that my dog keeps digging under... I'd rather use yard sod staples and staple the fence wire to the ground rather than put it in the ground is that something that I can do? 

Asked by: Scottcassie
Thank you for your question, Scott! While it is not required to bury the wire; using metal staples may cause interference with the system. If you choose not to bury the wire you will want to keep it protected by placing it is a material such as PVC pipe to a water hose with the metal ends removed.

I am needing to install the cordless fence along a chain link fence that my dog is jumping over.   Would I be ok running the wire along the top of the 4 ft cordless fence with zip ties.  How far out does the signal go.   

Asked by: Halle the jumper
This is a terrific question! The wire for the PetSafe® Stubborn Dog In-Ground Fence may be attached to an existing fence with zip ties or it may be weaved in and out of the fence. When installing the wire please ensure that there is not damage to the insulation of the wire. The signal will vary depending on the settings of the transmitter that the wire is connected to. For installation information or assistance, please feel free to reach out to us at 1-800-732-2677.
