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.

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,

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best investment I've ever made I bought the Pet Safe Wireless pet containment system over 8 years ago and i've never been happier. You don't have to buy PetSafe batteries, you can use any brand as long as they are the same size. Be sure to change the batteries every few months because there is no warning for when the batteries die and my dog ALWAYS knows when they are dead and has gotten loose a few times. You can also buy replacement collars for the receivers if yours gets dirty or old. This system was the best investment I've ever made and I'd buy another in a heart beat if I ever needed to.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great! Bought this wireless transmitter for our rental property. We have it set at a 45 ft radius and set at stubborn dog. Our lab/hound dog went through it once when he didn't entirely realize what was going on. He has not been through it since! If you have different elevations, you want to set the transmitter high enough to transmit in that area. We had to raise our height because the collar was not beeping in that selected area where the ground was higher. We turn it off every night just to save electricity and haven't seen that to be an issue. We got roughly 3 months out of the battery. We've had it 4 months so far. Great alternative to invisible fence!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2013-05-26
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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
