Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HeatherHofGA wireless electric pet fence
I have owned the Petsafe Wireless Pet fence for over 6 years. I love it. I have one dog on it. She learned in one day where her boundries were. She has never left the yard since, even when her batteries had died and we did not realize it. I just got a second dog two days ago, and will be purchasing an additional collar to train her. It is a great option if you do not have the money to put up a regular fence. Be aware though, other dogs can come into your yard. I always keep an eye and an ear out when she is outside. We have never had a problem with that, she usually barks and chases them away. I have recommended this product to many friends. We love it and so does my dog. She can run and play without a leash.

I purchased this collar as an additional one to use with our existing unit because we had gotten another dog. I wasn't sure if it worked, at first, because I could not get the test light to work. I even tried the tester that came with our original collar and couldn't get that one to work either. I took the collar outside near the 'boundary' and found that it beeped, like it should, so I was hopeful that it would work. One thing I found is that this collar has a greater boundary area than the original one, for some reason. I was worried about issues of compatibilty with the existing unit but there were none, it works great and I'm very happy with it!

It works well, but the collar didn't even last 2 years and they are very expensive. We have also had to replace the battery every 2 months or so. I understand the batteries wearing out, but would expect the collar to last longer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Robin Excellent cost-efficient product
I originally purchased this system about 8 years ago when it would only allow one dog on it. It was a lifesaver. Then we got another dog and we had to purchase a whole new system. Well worth it. We gave the old system to my sister whose boxer loves the freedom in their yard. My two chocolate labs know where their boundaries are. One is older and doesn't go anywhere near the edge when wearing the collar and the battery lasts 3 months. The other constantly goes to the edge and wears down the battery quicker. I also love that we can unplug it and bring it with us wherever we go. Originally, our option was a $20,000 fence or this. I do find that I need to replace the collars every two years. Still a huge cost savings.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tmfuhr Product works wonders with my large and somewhat stubborn mastiff. Ive tried the remote control collars and due to his size this is the only product that has actually worked to keep him in the yard. I would absolutely recommend this containment system for anyone with large breed dogs.

We have had this for years and I do not doubt it has saved my rambunctious little dogs life numerous times. Just a note, other reviewer commented about thunderstorms and power outages, your dog is perfectly safe. Even if the fence were struck by lightning, your dog is not physically connected to the transmission wire and the collar does not alert when the electricity is out. Only the active transmission of the wire in close proximity will alert or correct your dog.
Also, for easier set up, you can use the heavier gauge wire pulled taut and stapled directly to the ground. Let the grass grow over it and you are done. I put down 1000ft of wire in one afternoon over 2 years ago. It was the same wire I had used at a previous residence. Could not have done that had I buried it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Good product, priced very high
Not a lot of value on this one with the cheap collar provided. Seems like the mark up is very high.
Product functions well, though I did note that the chime on this one is not as good as the chime on the one that came with the system. It's a little difficult for my dog to hear the beep. Certainly seems like they went the wrong way with that change.
It would be nice if these came with the option to buy a different color collar. The faded pink that invades my boy dog's neck looks pretty terrible.
