Broken Leads
I do like my Petsafe system, but over the years I have replaced 2 Ultralight collars and 1 Big & Stubborn collar for the same problem - the leads (pegs and whole nuts) break off. The store I buy from says that Petsafe won't return their calls and couldn't do anything about it. These units have not been new, but maybe 2+ years old. Design flaw. Probably hits the dog door sometimes when the go in and out, but still. That's why I have a dog door.

    Not very sturdy, dogs will play!
    We bought this system last year. We are going on our 3rd shock collar because the prongs completely snap off at the base. I've read a lot of the reviews here and petsafes answer is they shouldn't break under normal usage. Excuse me, but, dogs play. Plain and simple. I didn't buy the collars to stop them from doing what they normally do (playing) They should (at the cost of 80 a pc) be redesigned to handle the rough housing that dogs will do together. They work great when they are not breaking. Not pleased that we should have to replace our collars due to normal dog behavior.

      Collars keep breaking
      I have 4 dogs I love the system but the prongs keep snapping off in the collar so you can’t rep lance just the prong ... currently have two broken collars ... we have already in 6 years bought a total of 5 replacement collars on top of the original 4 we bought

        Purchased this for an existing underground fence system. It didn’t work when I first brought it home, so I retuned it to the store for a new one. The new one came with a dead battery, bought new batteries for it and it worked. I contacted the company but didn’t get anything resolved about the dead battery.

        Lightweight but doesn't last...
        I've had to replace several of these over the years. I'm not sure this one lasted even a year. It just stopped working. I have two other collars and they are working. The battery is brand new.

          Works great!
          This collar was for a puppy! These collars are so worth the money! No worries!

          Exact Replacement
          This is the exact replacement for the one we had. Our dog wears hers everyday so the old one had taken a beating. (Prong socket broke) I would recommend the entire system for any Do It Yourselfer.

          useful product but collars keep breaking
          I like having the fence for years now but the collars don't seem to last more than a year or two without the contacts breaking.. and replacements are pretty expensive considering how cheap they are made.

            Love these systems
            Is this ultra light collar compatible with the PIF300 wireless system? I need a small collar for my little dogs and the collars that come with the 300 are bulky and large. I don’t like the rechargeable ones that the play safe system offers.

              Breakage and high battery use
              I have 3 of these collars and all of them have some sort of breakage. Two collars have the screw mountings where the clear plastic covers goes into broken at the threads so there is no way to put a new clear plastic cover back in and one collar has completely separated where the two halves join together. There isn't enough electrical or duct tape to hold these collars together. Battery usage is extremely high and all of our dogs have been thoroughly trained and don't even go near the invisible fence line to set off even the warning signal.

                Very happy my Suzie is safe
                I have been very pleased with my pet safe system. I have a fenced yard and live in the country, but have a driveway that leads to a busy county road. I put my ststem under my driveway access only, but had a professional install the electrical box and a heavier wire underground to accomodate tractor and large truck traffic. My dog a border collie respects the boundary wire even if I accidentally forget to put her collar on in the morning. I remove at night when she is inside. The original collar is showing wear and seems a little tight if she gains a little weight in the winter months, but is still working, I have had no problems with the prongs, and have replaced the batteries perhaps three times and have had no problems purchasing them at my local pet store. I love the ability to feel at peace that my beloved pet is safe in my yard. I love my Pet Safe system! I would put another wire under another gate on my property if there was a controller that would operate on a solar charging system as this gate is not near an electrical support. Thank you for a great product.

                  Collars break all the time...
                  We have had our petsafe underground fence for 8 years and I am now going to have to order yet another collar to replace a broken one. I've lost track and am not sure if this is #4 or 5. One of them the neck prongs broke right off and the others have just stopped working for us. I have also had an issue with buying replacement batteries and them not working when received and the underground wire has had to be fixed multiple times as well... Overall disappointed with this product but it's way to much work and money to replace the whole system for a 3 acre yard...

                    Disappointed
                    I like your products and business. I used to install your fences professionally. I chose PetSafe for many reasons but ultimately believing your product to be the best. My disappointment began when you changed to the proprietary battery. It is inconvenient and more expensive, but more, the collars have not been nearly as good. I've purchased more new Deluxe collars in the past several years then years prior. The collars used to last more than 3 to 5 years, even 12 years. Those collars had a ten year warranty. Now I purchase a new collar every 13 months or less. These collars have one year warranty. Is the proof in the warranty? Perhaps you don't believe in these collars either. I will try the new expensive rechargeable collar, hoping this is your "flagship" collar, otherwise I'm jumping ship! Sincerely, Paul
