Rated 3 out of 5 by sjbarrientos Very perplexed with this collar
This is not my first PetSafe Extra Stubborn Dog In-Ground Receiver Collar, but it is the first one that I have had problems with, or possibly it is just the dog wearing this one.
He is a one year old half Boxer, half Australian Shepard, with very short hair. He actually crosses the invisible line quite frequently and will even cross again to come home or when I call him. He seems to feel nothing from the collar. I have checked it several times, and it appears to be working correctly. I have not tested it on my own hand yet, but think I might have to. I hear the beeping noise/warning alert, whenever he gets too close to the line, and this phases him none also. There are 4 other dogs here that also wear collars without any problems, and he pretty much learned from the other dogs what it was all about. I am guilty because I actually did not go through the recommended training procedure with him. In the beginning I know he got zapped because I saw him yelp and move back away. Have no idea what the deal is now though. I have not yet contacted anyone regarding this and am in the process of starting to get some support. Bottom line is I would recommend this collar as I have had great results with my other big dog wearing it. All sizes of these specific collars have worked out for all of the dogs I have had the privilege to own. Only issue ever is that after quite some time, I have had one prong break off of several collars, gorilla glue then helped out until I finally ended up buying a new collar each time this has happened. But overall each collar has lasted a good length of time and I can always find reasonable priced batteries online, never have paid the high price that can also be found online or in a store. Hope all this rambling helps someone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Charliesmom Works better than I expected
Charlie is a one-year old chocolate lab that was jumping over a 12-foot fence. His prior family surrendered him because they could not keep him in the yard. I've only had him for about 5 weeks. After only one day of wearing the collar, he started staying away from the fence. After one week, we reduced the intensity from a five to a three. The collar is also 100% waterproof. Charlie goes for swims in our pool all day long. The other collar would stop working immediately once it got wet. I really could not believe how well this waterproof collar works after being fully submerged in the water multiple times per day. I am very relieved to know that Charlie will now remain safe in our yard.

This product works great for my mountain cur/ redbone mix and my black lab. And if you know how the curs are you know how stubborn they are if they want something.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tboy Works well with the receiver I have.
Priced reasonable and works very well with the receiver I have. Like the fact that the battery can be purchased without any problems.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Shirl1 Could use improvement
I am not 100% pleased with the petsafe collars. The problem that I have is that my dogs shake their heads and the unit rotates to the side of their necks. Both are long haired dogs. I shave the front but do not want to shave the sides and back of the neck. No matter how tight the collars are, they still rotate. However, overall, even with the longer prongs the collars seem to do their job.

Two large dogs stopped going over the invisible fence boundaries. Happy pets and happy me!
Prompt and fast delivery. All claimed product qualities realized.
If you have a hairy dog, you may want the long prongs. So far, the medium prongs are working on mine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by gdane1 Awesome Products and Fast delivery
This product was a quarter of the cost of local store and works awesome. They company took the extra time to insure my order was not only correctly but insured that I was the one who placed the order.

This collar was exactly as described and what I needed. The pricing was good, fast delivery, and appears to be a durable product. I would definitely recommend this product and I will definitely return to Chewy.com for future products.
