Instructions

Troubleshooting

The receiver collar tone is not sounding when setting up the boundary zone.

  • Make sure the receiver collar is turned on and battery status lights are flashing every 4-5 seconds.
  • Charge receiver collar.
  • The tone may be difficult to hear in a noisy environment.
  • Use test light as explained in the “test light instructions” section, and use it to determine the location of boundary zone.
  • Check that the transmitter is set up according to directions.

The receiver collar tone is not sounding or administering a static correction.

  • Check that the transmitter is plugged into a working 120 volt outlet, turned on, the power light is on, and the transmitter controls are set at your desired settings.
  • Make sure the receiver collar is turned on and battery status lights are flashing every 4-5 seconds.
  • Charge receiver collar.

The receiver collar tone is sounding everywhere.

  • Check that the transmitter is plugged into a working standard 120 volt outlet, turned on, the power light is on, and the transmitter controls are set at your desired settings.

The receiver collar tone is sounding inside the house.

  • It is recommended to remove the receiver collar from your pet when indoors to avoid activation of the receiver collar.
  • Make sure the transmitter is on and set up according to the directions.
  • Ensure the entire house is within the pet area. The transmitter may need to be moved to adjust the pet area to include the entire house.
  • If relocating the transmitter, remove the receiver collar from your pet before turning the transmitter off.

My pet is receiving a static correction in his metal crate.

  • The receiver collar activates when it loses the transmitter signal. The metal crate may block the transmitter signal which causes the receiver collar to activate.
  • Remove the receiver collar from your pet when placing him in his metal crate.

The boundary zone seems to fluctuate.

  • This is normal for the electromagnetic field of the Stay & Play™ Wireless Fence for Stubborn Dogs. The field may be affected by surrounding “electronic noise,” which can cause it to fluctuate up to 5%.
  • The location the receiver collar activates is influenced by the speed and orientation of the receiver collar as your pet enters the boundary zone.

The receiver collar activates in the middle of the yard.

  • The receiver collar activates when it loses the transmitter signal. This sometimes occurs if a large metal object is between the receiver collar and transmitter, if the orientation of the receiver collar changes near the boundary zone, or if the surrounding “electronic noise” interferes with the signal. If this continues to occur, consider relocating the transmitter and resetting the pet area.

The receiver collar tone is sounding but my pet is not responding to the static correction.

  • Make sure the static correction level is set at 2 or above.
  • Test the receiver collar with the test light.
  • If the test light flashes, check 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.
  • Increase the static correction level.
  • Repeat training steps to reinforce training.

My pet reacts strongly to the static correction and has become fearful.

  • Lower the static correction level.
  • Make sure you are in control of the situation when your pet receives his first static corrections (have him on a leash attached to a separate, non-metallic collar) and lead him into the pet area and praise him. If your pet remains fearful, suspend training and start again the next day. Make sure to end all training sessions on a positive note with lots of praise and play.

The transmitter power light is not on.

  • Make sure the power adaptor is plugged into a working 120 volt wall outlet.
  • Verify that the outlet is working properly by plugging in a known working item such as a radio.
  • If the power light still does not come on, the fence transmitter and/or power adaptor needs to be replaced.

I was setting up the pet area and after I turned down the boundary control dial, the receiver collar would no longer tone or correct.

  • You may have turned the boundary control dial down too quickly, causing the receiver collar to go into power-fail mode. This is a safety feature designed to protect your pet when power to the transmitter goes out.

My next-door neighbor has a containment system and the receiver collar does not activate near their property.

  • Your neighbor’s containment signal may interfere with the operation of the receiver collar preventing activation close to their fence. To minimize the interference, reduce the size of the pet area or move the transmitter away from your neighbor’s system.
  • Adjust the pet area so that the receiver collar activates for at least 5 feet beyond the reduced boundary setting when walking towards the neighboring containment system.

The receiver collar has injured my pet’s neck.

  • Failing to follow the important safety information at the front of the product manual has caused pressure ulcers. Some descriptions of advanced pressure ulcers describe the sores as looking like burns on the dog’s neck. Be assured that electronic collars do not use enough energy to create electrical burns. The energy in an output pulse is only a few thousandths of a Joule; it is similar in nature to the static pulse that you may feel when getting out of your car. In some cases, pressure ulcers are described as chemical burns. The battery in your receiver collar is sealed, in addition, your collar’s housing is also sealed. This sealing makes it virtually impossible, without misuse or abuse, for your receiver collar battery to leak onto your pet’s neck. Please review and follow the important safety information on page 3, and the instructions in Step 6 under the heading “Fit the receiver collar” on page 12.

    This works!

    By GoldendoodleMama on Sep 10, 2021

    Best investment we made to train our dog to stay in the yard and not run off! It’s not too intense which is what I was afraid of at first. If he gets too close it will beep/buzz so he knows not to go any further.

    GREAT Solution

    By PetSafeWirelessFence on Jun 29, 2021

    We have a 3 year old lab who was used to running in a large, rural area. We’re talking miles of free space! I got tired of making sure the chickens were in and we lost one too many of our rabbits, so it was time to invest in a “fence.” After having complete freedom, I figured it would be hard to correct him, but it only took 2 training sessions and maybe 30 min of effort for me! (I watched a short YouTube video from PetSafe for set-up and training tips.) We have been using it for months now and I’m astounded at how well it works. Even when we have the chickens out, he’s not tempted to chase them beyond his border. Can you imagine?! He just stops and lets them go.

I read the critical reviews on the site and can only assume these people received a defective product. I experienced NONE of the issues mentioned. NOTE: the wireless transmitter only permits a circular boundary. For the people who were unhappy b/c they needed an oval (and for anyone who wants something different than a circle), this isn’t your solution. … more

    Good when good. Bad when bad

    By Wirelessfence on Aug 3, 2021

    We were happy with the results of this product And it worked for our stubborn dog. However, the base stopped working and would only beep on and on and on. After many calls to customer service and attempts to reset. The product is no longer usable.

    By jowheel on May 22, 2021

    Our stubborn Corgi had never been outside without a leash because we are close to the street. Now he can have freedom outside to play, he is so happy! We had it set up in under 2 hours, it looks and sounds more complicated than it is when you start setting up. he learned his boundaries in just a couple days. Now he can even be outside unsupervised and I feel safe about it. I was very skeptical that this would work for us but it works great and I wish we’d gotten it long ago. True he can’t roam the entire yard, but we set up the box as close to the back of our house as possible so most of his space is in the back yard and he can’t go close to the street. even if other dogs are walking by or squirrels Our stubborn Corgi had never been outside without a leash because we are close to the street.

The only thing that would improve this is if it came with a remote for behavior issues. … more

    Works Great for our 2 dogs

    By RunnerPaul on Jun 21, 2021

    I have 2 Beagle mixed dogs both were continually get out of the fenced area by either digging, climbing or pushing the fence down. After training them with these collars they now have much more freedom. I have not had any issues with them getting though the boundary, in fact it is funny watching them wait at the boundary as the deer, rabbits and groundhogs etc. pass by them.

    Not stubborn enough

    By Katt on May 28, 2021

    I followed all directions and my dog keeps on going.. the battery doesn’t last long either. I bought this for my almost 2 yo standard golden doodle that weighs 47 lbs. I hear it beep and it doesn’t phase her at all and over the fence she goes! I have tried different settings and nothing. It’s not for every dog that’s for sure.

    Not consistent. Doesn't work

    By Crap on Jul 26, 2021

    I tried to like this product but it's not consistent. Sometimes it will beep or beep in different areas or just completely go right to shocking the dogs.

    Our dogs learned their boundaries quickly after a few days of walking them around the flag boundary they are able to be outside on their own. Now a year later the dogs know their area and stay at home. No more porcupines!
