Rated 1 out of 5 by Suej510 Doesn't work
Our two dogs walked right over the safe area even when their collars were beeping The Corgi sat within one foot of it for several minutes and was completely unfazed--even at maximum area selected. Big waste of money and the 4-5 hours we spent trouble shooting. The collar which came with the unit didn't even pass the trial test and the others we purchased separately didn't stop either dog even with new replacement batteries. Very disappointed. The customer service with both Pet Safe and Chewy were great though and we're going to try the Scat Mat since the point was to keep them from running off when the front door was open.

I have a 4 year old Beagle, and this did not work on her at all, I was attempting to set it up to keep her off of my couch, and she would still just get up there and curl up and and nap through the static correction, then it would stop after 15 seconds. Perhaps not going to work on any strong willed dog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Halfpint63 this really keeps your pet out of areas as described
I truly believe that this has made both our pet & us alot happier not having to worry about what we would find in the morning. As we don't believe in punishment this works great! ! thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sadielady It worked!
My 3 year old hound mix finally just figured out how to get into the garbage, which is in a pullout draw in our island/counter. She was making a HUGE mess every day. I knew if I secured the door somehow, she just would have scratched at the door and ruined my cabinet. I honestly didn't think this would work, but it did! Even when the alarm or collar isn't on, she seems to be avoiding the area. She learned very fast.

I guess was a little disappointed after giving it a few tries. Even though I had the range on 8-12 feet, my dog Max still managed to get down into the basement. I moved the device from a side wall to the top of a box on the basement floor so it would be closer to the collar. I don't know whether this really did the trick! I can't tell whether my dog now stays away from the area because of the collar or from him hearing me yell at him from the basement! I wish I could get my $50 back...

Followed the instructions to the letter. Tried the different methods to train my dogs but they ran right through the barrier. Used brand new fresh batteries, checked the connection and everything was working with the product but it just didn't keep my dog out.

I have a husky / border collie mix that sheds - a lot! I bought this item to prevent him from getting on my sofa when I am not home. It works like a charm - I no longer have to lift the cushions all the time. It can be a little difficult to adjust the distance setting. I recently purchased a second one for another furniture piece. Very easy to train the dog and it works well.

My Corgi is stubborn. I found he first didn't like it. Within 24 hours he would just "deal" with the shock, and then go where I didn't want him. I tried it on myself. Don't do this. It is noxious as heck.
