Rated 4 out of 5 by Lulu01 Petsafe Paws Away Works Well
Product does what it says - keeps collared animals away from a specific area. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because the collar (receiver) is not waterproof. We have an indoor/outdoor cat so we must be carefull to remove her collar when she wants to go outside. Since we also have dogs this can be quite difficult. We may need to return it because of this. We were really hoping it would work for us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by whones Worked surprisingly well.
I was initially skeptical when I purchased this item however it turned out that this product works surprisingly well.
It took our cats a couple days to change their habit patterns but now I no longer need to worry about them going where they shouldn't.
Electric fences get a bad rap, but in many cases, if you consider the alternative to not using the electric fence, the animal would be in a far worse situation.

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.

So it works will but we have it set for 12 feet and it only affects her when she gets to about 3 feet. Other than that works great.

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.
