Questions & Answers


can you run wire in exposed pvc conduit when crossing sidewalk or driveway

Asked by Ian May 5, 2021

This is a great question, Ian! This would be perfectly fine. Wire can be run through any non-metallic conduit for protection.

How deep in the ground do you put the wire

Asked by Roberta May 2, 2021

Thank you for this question! It is recommended to place the wire 1 to 3 inches into the ground.

My next store neighbor has this product and recommends it. If I install this same system and the...

Asked by Jalutzy April 29, 2021

Thank you for your great question, Jalutzy. If two In-Ground Fence systems' wires are too close, then yes, there can be signal interference (whether both fences are PetSafe Brand or not). If you and your neighbor both have In-Ground Fences, we will recommend that the lines are at least ten feet apart from one another to avoid the potential of interference.

How close can the dog grtcot the wire

Asked by Kin March 17, 2021

Great question, Kin! This is actually something you control. Using dial on the transmitter numbered from 1-10, you can adjust the distance from the wire that the receiver collar will deliver a tone and stimulation. We recommend setting it to allow a minimum of 3ft of signal to give the collar time to provide the warning tone then stimulation should your pet progress further toward the wire.

Does this need to be a complete loop in order to work or can you put a break in the loop? I have...

Asked by TNav221 September 22, 2020

Thank you for your great question. The In-Ground Fence does require a complete, closed loop. However, we do have layout possibilities where you can still allow your dogs access to the gate. There are detailed diagrams in the manual that will help you achieve this layout, and our Customer Support can help you find a layout that works for you as well. We can be contacted at 1-800-732-2677

Is it going to work when it's snows 2 ft on it

Asked by Whip September 16, 2020

Thank you for your question! The In-Ground containment systems will work regardless of weather conditions. Pet containment systems are built to handle a wide variety of weather conditions, and snow, sleet, and rain are most certainly included. The wire used to determine a dog's proximity to a yard's boundaries is insulated, and transmits its signal through radio waves so snow won't interfere with its functionality as long as it has been properly installed.

Will this transmitter work with the collars that work on with the Petsafe RF1010

Asked by Bob July 27, 2020

Thank you for this question! You may use any collar that are currently working with your RF-1010 with this system. For additional questions you may have please feel free to reach out to us at 1-800-732-2677. We are happy to help!

How many feet of wire will one transmitter work for?

Asked by Liv June 11, 2020

Thank you for this question, Liv! This transmitter can cover up to 25 acres, or around 4100 feet of wire.

What specific wire is suggested to make the perimeter bigger?

Asked by Falecia April 8, 2020

This is a great question! You can attach any 16-20 gauge copper insulated wire to the wire that comes with your kit to expand your perimeter.

Are you able to purchase additional collars for other dogs?

Asked by Cristy March 5, 2020

Yes, Instructions on securing additional collars is provided in instructions

Best Money ever spent!
Its SO easy to just let our guy out. He LOVES the outdoors and this gives us confidence to let him out for longer periods of time.
by Teresa K.
Two different sized Dogs system installed by owner
We recently got a new Bernese Mountain dog puppy and we have a 7 year old Dachshund mix who we rescued 4 years ago. I received the kit very quickly through the mail. The instructions were pretty simple and I was able to run the cable around the perimeter of my property very quickly for testing it out. Our puppy got corrected about three times before he truly figured it out and learned to stay away from the perimeter. Our Dachshund, who is known for bolting as soon as the door opens, didn't take to it as quickly. "Can't teach an old dog new tricks?" That was not the case. After she ran through the fence a few times, she was scared to go outside at all. Being a rescue from an abused family, this is understandable. After working with her for a week, showing her the boundaries with the shock correction turned off just utilizing the audible correction and the vibration alert, She started to get comfortable outside again and also stayed away from the perimeter. The beep and vibration was enough to get her attention and she returns into the property. At this time, I spent half a day with a spade shovel and buried the fence a couple inches into the ground. I found that the signal was a bit less, so I took advantage of the signal strength dial and turned it up and tested it again. It took a bit of trial and error, but I got it dialed in pretty good. This has been an absolutely fantastic device for the dogs. They can go outside and run around like a dog should be able to do! Now I just have to figure out how to stop my Dachshund from digging up critters around my AC unit, LOL. I think I am going to build a decorative fence around my unit for this. Quick summary: Fast delivery Good instructions solid design Customizable for you needs Fantastic product!

Not good for Dobermans
Worked great for about six months. Now my Doberman runs through it when he wants to chase something and then he can't get back in the yard. I have to drive car to the road and put him in and drive back into yard. However, it works for our German Shepherd fine.

Only great for a while on a stubborn dog
I have two dogs (African Hunting dogs and sisters from the same litter), on this system. The one is very stubborn and a fence jumper. We've had them on the collars for 10 months (they are not yet 2 years old). The stubborn one learned very quickly that when the collar doesn't beep/vibrate (we have frequent power outages), that she can pass the boundary. Even though I have her collar set at the highest setting, she has also recently become content with the shocks and will happily walk/run the barrier without so much as a yelp. I can definitely say it's still shocking (I got shocked by accident the other day, and I can hear it shocking when testing it). I've tried both collars on her as well, but get the same reaction from her. Not sure what to do now. I guess you get stubborn, and you get STUBBORN.

Packaging states that it covers a half acre but not even close. Be sure to buy extra 20 gauge wire which is hard to find. Installation and setup was fairly straight forward. Make sure the collar is very snug on your dogs neck and start at the lowest setting. Delivers quite a jolt. Good value for the money!
Response from PetSafe Brand ExpertApr 23, 2021
Thank you for your review, Angela. We're sorry that you didn't have quite enough wire for your layout.

With the included wire, this In-Ground Fence can cover approximately ⅓ acre; however, this can vary depending on the specific shape of your yard and layout. However, you can cover up to 25 acres with additional wire.

If you have any further questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to us at 1-800-732-2677, and we'll be happy to help. PetSafe

1 week down the drain
We have a very hyper active Rottweiler who ripped through our gate, his cage, collars, and broke so much leashes. So smart that he knows how to unlock himself from his leashes if he can’t get it to break. Decided to buy this so he’ll be able to run around while staying in a specific area and so we can stop buying so much things just for it to be thrown away. Came in the mail early, and setting up was really easy. After a week, the device would always start beeping, fixed the wires and it would stop. Then at night it would jus towel going and going. My other half said it was the collar, every time we would run it over the line it wouldn’t beep. So looks like we have to find another option.

We’ve used this one for a while now. Our dog has only jumped over it twice, but his neck is very large so we just had to change the little metal pieces. Easy setup & works well!

Good product, but very stubborn DOG
Have had for a year now and we have a 2 year old doberman who is very stubborn. It works great, but he has learned how to drain the battery by standing in the zone to keep zapping himself. He will get it low enough to go through it, so I am at a loss what to do with this dog. We need a collar with a heck of a jolt to keep him from pushing it all the time. We go through a lot of batteries.
