How does it work?

The PetSafe Pawz Away Threshold Pet Barrier keeps your pet from entering or leaving a certain room, from going up or down stairs, off of furniture, etc. Just place the Threshold Transmitter near the area your pet should avoid. The Threshold Pet Barrier transmits an adjustable elliptical radio signal. Your pet wears a Receiver Collar with Contact Points that touch his neck. When your pet enters the Barrier Area, he’ll hear a series of audible tones from the Receiver Collar and he will feel a safe Progressive Static Correction, delivered through the Contact Points on his neck. The Progressive Static Correction will get his attention, but will not cause harm. The correction continues until your pet leaves the Barrier Area. The PetSafe Pawz Away Threshold Pet Barrier has been proven safe, comfortable, and effective for pets at least 6 months old and 5 pounds or more.


1-Year Limited Warranty.

    Awful product!

    By charlie on May 16, 2020

    I bought 2 of these barriers because the indoor barrier discs worked so well. I figured that this would be a similar product. It didn't phase my dog the least, and only beeped once. No shock, nothing. Also, it didn't come with any INSTRUCTIONS! I turn it on, and I'd get a green flash, then a red flash, and it would turn off. What does THAT mean?!?! What a waste of money! These were expensive! Do not buy! At least not until they improve them, and actually bother to test these on an animal before marketing them. I really really wanted this to work so I could stop having to shut my door to the upstairs.

    Epic Fail Returning

    By ThekittyDoc on Jul 27, 2019

    I've used an outdoor set-up before which worked great. This was a complete fail. I purchased 2 extra collars and an extra barrier. The pictures attached are screenshots from the video I took. Tried several different levels, picture taken at most intense. It just doesn't work at all. Waste of $250. Very disappointed really needed this to work. ;(

    Not for use with cats

    By TooBig on Aug 6, 2019

    I should have ordered the small dog fence because the collar is huge and would go around the cat's neck three times. Returning product.
