Rated 3 out of 5 by Harolda Took 24 hours before dogs got their first correction shock.
Took 24 hours before dogs got their first correction shock. But one shock was enough. Food no longer disappears from the kitchen counter. Bought 2 for 2 dogs but one of the dogs took an unopened box outside and chewed the heck out of it. Had to purchase another unit so now I have 3 zones I can protect. Too bad it's so hard to get extra/replacement collar. Mail order only and collar costs $5 less than complete set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mick Dogless Couch
Our 80 LB pit bull had a bad habit of lying on the back portion of the couch to look out the window while we were gone. We were trying to break her bad habit. We had bought a new couch and she is well minded but still would not stay off it. We set the transmitter in the middle of the couch. As we tested it she could get close but if she strayed into it she would receive a warning and then the shock. After one day she has not been back on it. We may have to occasionally remind her by using it as the memory fades. We also reinforce while we are home by not encouraging her to come near the couch. By the way Chewy had this item for 20 dollars less than our local store.

Unlike the collars on barrier fence (yard) collars this one cannot be worn over 12 hours. The dog associates the collar with pain & resists putting it on a 2nd time, making it almost unusable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TLB2 Good training tool
My dog kept peeing on my new rug and fabric couch! I did not want gates! I am so happy I bought this. He got shocked ONCE and will not step foot in my living room again! He looks at the room like HECK NO! I AM NOT GOING THRU THAT AGAIN! haha
The only reason I did not give it a 5 star - I wish the distance was a little further then 4' in diameter on each side so I could hide the devise under my cocktail table.

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.
