Description

This containment system keeps your pet safely contained and secure in your yard. Install the system in about a weekend by setting up the transmitter and burying wires around your yard. The fence covers up to 5 acres with additional wire and flags. You'll place flags around your yard and train your pet where his new yard boundaries are in fun, quick training sessions over the next 2 weeks. Most pets learn their new boundaries quickly. If your pet gets too close to the yard edge, the waterproof receiver collar reminds your pet with a warning beep, followed by a safe, gentle static correction if he continues. Add an unlimited number of pets by purchasing an extra collar for each pet.

Key Benefits
  • Waterproof receiver collar for dogs 8 pounds and up, fits neck sizes 6-28 inches.
  • 4 adjustable levels of static correction or tone-only mode alerts your pet with a beep. Correction increases if your dog tries to run through the boundary zone.
  • Collar uses PetSafe RFA-67 battery (included).
  • Covers up to 1/3 acre with included boundary wire, expandable up to 5 acres with additional wire (not included).
  • Add an unlimited number of pets with additional in-ground receiver collars.
What's Included

Transmitter with power adaptor, receiver collar with RFA-67 battery, short and long contact points for short-haired and long-haired pet, (50) boundary training flags, 500 feet of 20-gauge boundary wire, surge protector, test light tool, wire nuts, waterproof gel-filled wire splice capsules, product manual.

Instructions

The receiver collar is not beeping or correcting.

  • Check the battery to make sure it is installed properly.
  • Check that both lights are lit on the fence transmitter. If not, perform the “System Test.”

The receiver collar is beeping, but the pet is not responding to the static correction.

  • Test the receiver collar with the test light by walking toward the boundary wire. If the test light flashes, adjust the fit of the receiver collar.
  • Trim your pet’s fur where the contact points touch the neck and/or switch to the longer contact points.
  • The contact points must be in contact with pet’s skin.
  • Increase the static correction level.
  • Repeat the training steps to reinforce training.

The receiver collar has to be held on top of the boundary wire to activate.

  • Replace the battery.
  • Adjust the boundary width control knob clockwise to increase the distance from the boundary wire that the receiver collar activates.
  • If using a double loop layout, make sure the boundary wires are separated at least 5 ft.
  • If the receiver collar still has to be held on top of the boundary wire, perform the “System Test.”

The receiver collar activates inside the house.

  • Turn the boundary width control knob counter clockwise to decrease the distance from the boundary wire that the receiver collar activates.
  • Make sure the boundary wire is not running within 15 ft. of the house. The signal can transmit through the walls of your house.
  • Make sure the boundary wires are twisted from the boundary to the fence transmitter.

The receiver LED indicator light is flashing every 4 to 5 seconds and I have just installed a new battery.

  • To reset the low battery indicator, remove the battery from the receiver collar. Discharge all power by holding the correction level button down until the LED is no longer illuminated. Reinstall the battery.

I have an inconsistent signal.

  • Make sure the fence transmitter is at least 3 ft. from large metal objects or appliances.
  • Make sure all boundary wire turns are gradual.
  • Make sure the boundary wire is not running parallel to or within 10 ft. of electrical wires, neighboring containment systems, telephone wires, television or antenna cables, or satellite dishes.
  • If a neighboring containment system may be causing an inconsistent signal, move the boundary wire farther away from the neighboring containment system.

The power and loop indicator lights are off.

  • Check that the power adapter is plugged into the fence transmitter.
  • Check that the power adapter is plugged in properly.
  • If the system is plugged into a RCD or GFCI outlet, check to see if the circuit has been tripped. Reset the RCD or GFCI circuit if required.
  • Verify that the outlet is working properly by plugging in a known working item such as a radio.
  • Try plugging the fence transmitter into another 120-volt outlet.
  • If the lights still do not come on, the fence transmitter and/or power adapter needs to be replaced.
  • If a surge protector is installed, unplug the surge protector and plug the power adapter directly into the outlet. If the transmitter operates without the surge protector, replace the surge protector.

The power light is on and the loop indicator light is off.

  • Check the boundary wire connections at the fence transmitter for proper connection.
  • Check for broken or damaged boundary wires at the outside entry to the house.
  • Perform the “System Test” to determine if the fence transmitter needs to be replaced.
  • If the fence transmitter is functioning properly, you have a break in your boundary wire (see the “Wire Break Location Test” section).

Secure Boundaries, Maximum Freedom

PetSafe's In-Ground Fence Systems are the most versatile and economical way to safely contain your pets while giving them plenty of room to run around. They're cheaper and easier to install than traditional fences, and you can customize or expand them whenever you need to. The gentle static correction from the remote collar helps pets quickly learn the boundaries of their territory.

Secure Boundaries, Maximum Freedom
Customized for Your Pet's Safety

Customized for Your Pet's Safety

With PetSafe's In-Ground Fence Systems, you create a custom safe zone around your home and yard. This keeps pets out of dangerous areas, pools, gardens or trash and also keeps them from running away or into the street. You can add an unlimited number of pets with additional collars, and you can tailor the layout to fit your unique needs.

How It Works

First, you'll set custom boundaries by burying the included wire in your yard. Put the receiver collar on your pet, and the transmitter will be able to send radio signals to the collar. When he approaches the wire border, your dog will hear a warning tone or feel a vibration. If he tries to leave the yard, he'll receive a safe static correction from the collar as a reminder to go back.

How It Works
Static Correction

What Is Static Correction?

Static correction is a mild electric stimulation that feels like a tickling sensation or like touching a metal doorknob. There are four levels that you can set, and you'll start by trying the lowest until you see a slight reaction like raised ears or a tilted head. The static correction will surprise your pet but is not harmful, and he'll always get a warning tone or vibration first.

Install in a Weekend

Installing your new PetSafe In-Ground Fence takes just 1 or 2 days—much less time than it takes to install a traditional fence. With a few simple tools, you can easily set it up in a weekend. It's a short DIY project that won't change the look of your landscaping and leaves you with the peace of mind that your pet will be safe and close to home.

    Work but worth it

    I fully admit there was a time while installing this that I wanted to throw my hands up and quit. We got an estimate from a company to have a system installed and the price tag left me with my mouth on the floor. A friend mentioned this system and the price tag was to my liking. Day one of installation i feared I made a terrible mistake. Hot sweaty and frustrated i thought the smarter idea would have been to write the big check to the other company.... with some perseverance, more sweat, and some language I am not proud of, we finally finished installation, and one week in to training I am beyond thrilled!

    In ground fence

    By on

    I have used the pet safe product since the 90’s (same one), and decided to upgrade to one with a surge protector for our new house. Installation is easy with a electric edger and a paint stir stick. Works great and the dogs are taking to the training quickly. Always a pleasure dealing with Chewy and we appreciate the crew working and keeping us safe.

    Great alternative to physical fence

    By on

    I have a chocolate lab named moose. Hes a good boy but seems to like to wonder around and were constantly finding shoes, bird feeders, etc... on our front porch from his wonderings. So we put this fence in took a weekend so it's not hard. I did have a bad transmitter so I called pet safe they shipped a new one out so A+ for customer service. I trained moose quickly then I let him wonder a little. He ran through the fence with the setting on 2 so I do more training and increased it to 3 he ran through one last time so I trained a 3ed time and upped it to level 4 he recieved 1 correction and now hes staying in the yard.

    My Only Concern..

    By on

    I've volunteered for Animal Rescues in addition to working at our local Humane Society so I'm members of many online groups. Just wanted to pass on some info regarding these. While they work great as long as your pet stays within the fence boundaries..they're awesome!! Yet I've read about times a dog may run past them chasing a squirrel, etc., and forget all about the shock they're getting when crossing the in ground electric fence. A missing dog is absolutely NO fun..nor is trying to get your fur baby back into his/her yard when the Fence System is on. At the point that your pet is beyond the system, so please turn it off so they are free to come back into the yard without getting a shock I've volunteered for Animal Rescues in addition to working at our local Humane Society so I'm members of many online groups.

At the point that your pet is beyond the system, so please turn it off so they are free to come back into the yard without getting a shock telling them otherwise. Here's a sad story to share so that ALL understand: There was a dog that had chased a squirrel past his families "In Ground Fence System". He was lost for days!! Neighbor's cameras saw him coming close to the property, but then he would run off again. While trying to figure out why..they thought that maybe an animal had left their scent that he was afraid of..etc. Looking for DAYS on end, they finally found him in the back woods of their property. Thankfully he was okay..but thin and dirty. Reason he wasn't coming back onto their property was because he was getting shocked by their in ground fence system that wasn't turned off. Poor little one never knew why he couldn't get back into the yard and come home...he kept getting shocked every time he tried. Sooo my advice to all; while these things are great, if your pet gets outside of them, please shut them off until your furbaby is safely inside the confines of your yard and the Fence System. Hope this helps as I for one, never would have even thought about this. Big helpful hugs to all the families and their fur babies out there. <3 … more

    Did not work properly

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    Decent product, but did not work for my dog. Trained her for months, and the barriers kept changing (without changing the knob) which made her get shocked for no reason sometimes, twice it just shut off, and it's very difficult to put in the ground (this last one I was expecting). I would suggest if you are going to invest money into this type of fence, then go for a higher priced fence system. The basic was not worth the money in my opinion.

    My little jumper can’t get out anymore. Got zapped and now is scared to get close to the fence. It’s a good thing but I feel like I’m being mean at the same time. At least I have help now!!! Thank you chewy!!!

    Great Product!

    By on

    Installed this myself last week. Although i had to speed up the training part. This works great. My Anatolian Shepard puppy is very aggressive and would rip all the flags out and chew on them. So we had to turn the collar to 3 for safety reasons. We live in a busy area and there are a lot of cars. After a few days of training him, he is now contained to his safe yard. Highly recommend this product.

    Kept Me From Giving My Husky Away!!

    By on

    My life has been wayyyy easier since installing this in-ground fence. Our Husky could not be trusted when left alone....very headstrong and smart. Took a very short time for her to learn not to cross boundaries, although we did have to set the static level to the highest setting. I would recommend to this product to anyone!!!

    Works Great So Far

    By on

    We have had this over a week now and our puppy who is 4 months old is adapting well to the fence and knows her boundaries. She picked up on the cues very fast. Hoping this continues to work as it should for years to come.

    Terrible Product

    By on

    I started having issues with the collar not working intermittently and the transmitter needing to be reset after 2 days of use. I called PetSafe a few times and they told me my issue was with the in ground fence wire every time. I had Invisible Fence come to my house and they check the wire and the wire is good. PetSafe does not warranty their product. DO NOT BUY
