Customer Questions & Answers

are the flags marking the containment area & are they buried or above ground?

Asked by: pete
You put the flags out as a reminder and visual learning tool for the dogs. They soon learn where the boundary is. They are above ground.

how do you decide where to install the transmitor? does it only do a circular area?

Asked by: lori
Place the transmitter near an outlet along a window or outside wall of the house or building that you want to be the 'center' of the area the dog can roam. Turn it and the collar 'on' and go outside. Walk around to find the boundaries as the collar will beep when you've reached the distance the dog can roam. If it doesn't beep soon enough for the area you want limited; either turn down the dial on the transmitter or relocate the transmitter away from the boundary you want to establish as in moving the 'center' of the area the dog can roam. Regarding your circular question; yes, it is circular except for areas obstructed by metal buildings or objects like a metal trailer. Walking around holding your collar will alert you to those situations.

Customer Reviews

1/2 Acre Radius Wireless Pet Containment System is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 74.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best decision I normally wouldn't take time to write a review, but I felt like this product really needed one. We have two dogs, one is a beautiful Pitbull about 100 pounds and the other is a Jappion (Japanese Chin/ Papillon mix). We live in the country on 3 acres and we let our dogs roam free. But they started roaming too far, chasing people that were jogging, ect. We wanted to get a wired pet system, but since we live in woods we knew it would be hard to bury the wire. So after reading review we decided to try this wireless one. First off when it came I watched a PetSafe video to see how to train. The set up was VERY easy and took under an hour. You just put the system in the best location in the house and walk around your yard holding the collar at your pets height and when you hear the warning beep you stop and place a flag. (then repeat every 8 to 10 feet.) I trained the dogs one at a time.. bringing them on a leash towards the flag and when it beeped pulling him back a few feet towards the house. I continued with a few flags the first day. (By the way they recommend starting on just the warning beep with no static correction, but my dogs had no results, so I did it on level 2.) After the first 2 days of training I started thinking, "great this is going to be different long long process". Well I was wrong. The third day I walked the pups around the perimeter and felt like they still weren't getting it. So I cut some hair off the little dogs neck and made sure the collar was on tight. I brought him towards the flag in the driveway (were he likes to run out and chase people at)... I heard the beep and bam my pup did a little whine (I felt bad) and walked back towards the house. That is ALL it took. One good shock. It has been over a month now and he never goes outside the perimeter! I mean he is stubborn as heck and will bark and chase anything but no matter who walks by, he just barks and stays in the yard!! I cannot believe how good this works! He loves being outside and now I can leave him your go in and out without the worry of him getting good hit by a car or chasing the deer. My big dog has had the same reaction. He though started trying to run to our cars when we pulled in and ignore the beep and correction. So I turned it up to level 3...he went to run to the car and got a bigger shock and immediately went back in property. I turned it back down to level 2. All it took for him was one big correction and now he doesn't even try to leave the boundaries. I know it might sound like little mean but... A- I shocked myself on level 2 when I first got it to see and it wasn't bad at all... B- Him getting hit by a car, or hurt by the coyotes in our woods would be much worse. One correction is all it took and now both our pups are safe and so happy because they can run and play. I wish I bought this YEARS ago!! And if in the future we want to make the area bigger we will just buy another reliever and expand it. ****BTW: yesterday we had given our pup a bath and forgot to put his collar back on. My husband let him outside and he still stayed in the boundaries.. I was shocked!

He did associate the flags with the border really quickly as well. I have terrible terrian for a fence so this finally allowed my dog to play outside without chasing a runner or paying 5k for a fence. Was a little confusing on how to set up the boundry but once I figured it out it's a cake walk. One thing for the makers: If you can make one that does biderectional control that would be awesome and I would buy it in a heart beat. My house is 60ft from the street but he would have 90ft of backyard. I would set the one option to 6 for front yard and 8 for backyard. Just food for thought. Thanks again for this product.

She is around 90 pounds, but I seen that this was for up to a 250 pound animal. My dog went through the wireless system. My son is going to try to set this up one more time, and if it does not contain my dog then I will be putting in for a refund on this item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product wonderful customer service! This product is amazing. Works wonderfully for our 1 year old Doberman. I would recommend it to anyone. The buckle on the collar broke after 3 weeks. I emailed customer support and they sent me a brand new collar for free. The staff is very kind.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good We bought this plus another collar for our two outside dogs it worked all of two days and still did not keep one of them from running thru it right after we set it up. This was a big waste of money.
