Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chris worked as advertised, exceeds expectations.
Needed a solution for an adopted hound that kept finding his way out of our fenced back yard. The system was installed about a month ago. This product really works. Installation wasn't too hard once you get the wire buried in the ground. I found a web site that had some great install and training tips from a professional installer. The kit has plenty of wire for 3/4s of an acre, and all the parts are of very good quality. The collar is waterproof and uses a 9 volt battery so you don't need to hunt down an expensive proprietary one. Use plenty of flags to mark the boundry wire. We started training in tone only mode, I think the dog recieved a couple shocks over the total training period. Follow all training instructions and in a couple weeks you can start leaving the dog outside with confidence. We have been very pleased overall, and more important, the dog no longer has to be tied up in his own yard. he can run free and I don't have to worry about him getting hit by a car because he escaped. If this can work on our escape artist, it can work on any dog.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by b25hf4u Finally a solution that works
We tried different methods of restraining our dog. I had purchased a system like this years ago and found it worked ok depending on the dog. Fast forward to today: living on 230 acres and the dog loves to run off and then have someone call to have him picked up: the dog goes around the fence, under it, flies over who knows levitates, kept baffling us. So after trying a training system, we saw that worked until he ran out of range. So we decided to put in an invisible fence, looked at different models, saw this one could go out to 100 acres: Bingo same thin we had to do with the horse.
Ran the wire on the ground and in the air for ease or installation, first strand along the fence, the second strand around 15 feet inward where we have trees or 8 feet up in the air so you can have separation. We were going to install an electric gate opener, well that plan has been shelved since this works so well and keeps the puppy within our yard. We have yet to fully enclose the property, but the flags scare him off, so until he starts to swim, levitate or figure out he can still get out, we not close the entire property, bu leave the partial loop in place

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Tramalama Good price. Simple instructions. Collar did NOT work, which is okay if replaced reasonably, which it was not.
4 different shock settings are nice. Collar is kind of cheap, but the collar receiver is waterproof. Plenty of wire included. I ordered the system through Home Depot's website. It was easy and simple. Good price. The collar did not work (inconsistent performance--sometimes the collar shocked, other times it did not. The collar would not beep--it just made a soft clicking noise). I'm okay that it did not work. What bothers me is that Sport Dog is sending a replacement that takes 2 WEEKS to show up. They told me I could get it expedited for a FEE. Huh? It only took a week for the system to show up, and Sport Dog is now trying to make additional money off me for THEIR inoperable product that should have been rushed to me.

Really simple to install once you dig the outline of the yard where you'd like the wire to run. Shocked the dogs once and ever since then they won't go near the flags and have never escaped the yard even when left unattended.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SayBo Work Superbly. Can set range from the transmitter and intensity from the collar (receiver).
I ran over 3500 feet of wire along the top of a no climb fence encompassing 12 acres to keep our 80 lbs coonhound from jumping over. It has stopped him cold. With a second petsafe collar, I now do not have to worry about our smaller dog from digging her way out. Wish I had done this a year ago! Very easy to set up and turn on. Has been operational for about a month. No problems.

Seems to work well. I have 2 shar pei/ lab mix. Both 1 year old. Very large dogs! One layed back & the other hyper, stubborn & wild. They were both easily trained. Training only lasted one session. They hated the beeping & vibration so much that I couldn't get them back near the flags. I have had the system in operation less than 2 months. My dogs have not escaped at all. They don't even go near the flags. I did not bury the wire as it is going all through the woods. We just used garden staples every few feet to tack it down. I thought the wire would be a little more heavy duty. I don't really like that the collars are rubber/plastic. We added an extra roll of wire to extend the roaming area. The system was easy to install & so far works great!
