Answer: 
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.

Answer: 
the flags are installed by you when you find the boundary during installation. after your pet learns the boundary, you can remove the flags. I keep them handy though, because if there is something I don't want my dog to get near, I just put the flags there and he won't go near it, lol.

Thank you for your interest in PetSafe's Wireless Pet Containment System.
The boundary flags are used when training the dog to learn the boundary lines of where the containment area is. They are removed once the dog is trained.

Answer: 
the higher the number, the larger the containment area. It is much easier if you have two people setting it up, one inside with the transmitter and one outside with the collar to check the boundary. We used our cell phones to communicate and had it done in under 30 minutes.

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.

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.

Answer: 
Hanging it on a wall, or putting it up on a shelf worked best for us. the containment area is somewhat circular, but can be affected by obstacles, so it's not perfectly round. you have to just find the boundaries as instructed in the manual.

yes it is a large circle 1/2 acre from side to side
when walking with the collar it will beep when coming to the end of the line

Answer: 
Hi Lori,
The transmitter is wireless so it can be placed anywhere.
Try to locate it so there are no obstructions blocking the signal.
The signal travels like the waves in a pond. With a 1/2 acre
radius.
You my buy additional transmitters to cover a larger area.
Mike,

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 58 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great. No Complaints Setup was easy. Dogs know where there boundaries are now and I now just need to put the collar on and they stay in there area with the tone only setting. August 3, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Did not work for us We tried to set this up twice and even called the company when it would not work! We live in a ranch and they told us that it was not working properly due to the garage (Cars/tools) Made no sense but we had to return it! Other people we know, has it, and it works great!!!! May 24, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not suited for our back yard Cannot be squared off , just a circular deterrent. If you have a square or rectangular plot of land this product is of limited use. May 10, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It works, but... It works like a charm, I have a Rottweiler/Dalmatian mix. After 2 times being corrected, he knows what the beep means, it was easy setup. The flags were annoying because they bend easy. However if you make the hole with a tiny screwdriver or something, they slide right in. It took a few minutes to set up. Over all it works great. Now the (but), when I walk out and hear the beep, then step back to set a flag, it keeps beeping sometimes even a couple of feet back. Dosent seem to be an issue, as long as my dog hears the beep im fine April 3, 2012
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not a Quality Product The collar receiver would beep at random times, even when it was within a couple feet of the transmitter. This really confused the dog. Very poor quality construction for such an expensive item. Can not recommend this product. April 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Saved my sanity! After one correction, our 7 1/2 month old/73 lb. Boxer has turned, from a terror on the run outside to an angel. We purchased this product as a less expensive alternative to constrict our pet to the yard and it works! I recommend if you're not at home/dog in cage-collar off, thunderstorm-collar off, unplug the unit from the wall-collar off first, in bed for the night-collar off. Monitor your pet for safety as with anything. This is the best investment I've ever made. Easy set-up. May 25, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cheaper than putting up a fence around our 2 acres! Really simple to 'install'. Our Australian Shepherd didn't take long to recognize the boundaries either. He loves roaming the 1/2 acre around the house and now comes in the front door or the back, just wherever he happens to take the notion to come in. No more 130ft linear running line with a 10ft lead. He's so much happier and stays outside a lot more now too. March 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great product, this wireless fence is wonderful and easy to use. just set up perimeters and walk dog as directions state and works great. I had a fence jumper and a digger have used this for about 2 months and I love it. but the dogs enjoy it more as they get more outside time, we have a doggie door and they come and go outside as wanted. great product.
