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.

    Complicated

    By Cklamb on Apr 1, 2021

    This would be fine for a small dog and a small yard but not big dogs who need lots of room to run. I’ve had this for a few months now and we’ve spent these months trying to set the perimeter for our yard. Our yard is long in length but short in width so I wanted to give the dogs more room in the back yard but when I limit the perimeter so that they can’t go into the front yard or the neighbors yard beside our house it limits their space in the backyard which then doesn’t give them enough room to run and play then they use the bathroom in the area that’s meant for the kids to play. We’ve adjusted the settings every which way you can think of, we’ve even flip and turned the box every which way This would be fine for a small dog and a small yard but not big dogs who need lots of room to run.

We’ve adjusted the settings every which way you can think of, we’ve even flip and turned the box every which way with little to no difference. For the price of this system it’s not worth it. I’m currently looking for other options without waisting another few hundred dollars. The only reason I gave it 2 stars is that it does keep my Dogs out of the road but other than that the system is not helpful for us. … more

    Waste of time for my property!

    By Dave on May 2, 2021

    After two days (as opposed to the supposed two hours) of set-up, we have a non-functioning wireless fence to return. And pay for return shipping!

    The Yard is Hers

    By Tkrew on Mar 9, 2021

    It only took our pup a day to learn the collar. She loves her yard freedom. Do make sure you take it off before pup jumps into the car!!! Also, we bought another collar for when friends come over and thier dogs pick it up quickly and they too love the yard freedom with our pup(s).

    good but ease into it

    By Johanna on Mar 28, 2021

    It works great. My dog is a wanderer and very high energy and now he stays in our yard. I didn’t realize it came set with the highest shock setting. 100% change that before training. I had to YouTube how to lower it.

    Working for my daughter's stubborn dog!

    By DickensMum on Feb 11, 2021

    First thing... Shipping is fast, I love Chewey. My daughter's dog is part Rotweiler and French Mastiff, and is devious. She was digging under the fence. I drove stakes into the ground to keep her in. She then began jumping over the fence. I made the fence higher. She is growing, and developed legs of a gazelle. I got really tired of chasing after her. Thought of an underground wire, but not thrilled with the idea of setting the wire into the ground. Then saw the reviews for wireless radio fencing from Petsafe, and others. I decided to get this from Chewy because they've been great for customer service on the few of times I needed.

Then saw the reviews for wireless radio fencing from Petsafe, and others. I decided to get this from Chewy because they've been great for customer service on the few of times I needed. Well, I set up the transmitter to keep her inside the fence by about 10 feet. Easy setup, read the instructions. We let the dog out with the collar on. My daughter didn't go through the recommended training with the dog. The dog ran though the boundary a couple times, once over the fence, so after each time we raised the sting level. We would watch the dog when she went out, and would call her back when she got close to the boundary. The dog did, learn that the tones pre-warned of a sting. We've had this four days. Today I turned my back on her to get a reward biscuit from the kitchen. I think she thought she'd make a break for the fence. I heard her yelp, as I came from the kitchen, and she came running back to the house. We'll see if she keeps testing the boundary. … more

    High Hopes

    By highhopes on Mar 15, 2021

    I had high hopes that this would work for my two very smart dogs but there were 100% unfazed by the beeps or anything that happened once they crossed the "lines". Waste of time.

    Description is misleading

    By Labrador on Feb 12, 2021

    The product description is misleading. It states the range is up to 3/4 mile when actually it's only up to 105 feet. It would be fine to use in a crowded subdivision with very small yard, but not for a large yard.

    My dog is unfazed by the correction

    By alice on Nov 11, 2020

    I bought this because our new yard is small, close to other houses and isn't easily fence-able. Unfortunately this isn't for "stubborn dogs", because my dog could care less that he is being shocked and still crosses the correction line. I've checked several times and it is on and functioning correctly. Unfortunately I can't recommend this and wish there was a better option.

    I love it. my dog doesn't agree with me

    By thatone26 on Aug 3, 2020

    Took my 15 minutes to set this up. I didn't have time to "test" it. I jest threw the collar on my dog and went about my business. My dog has yet to go snortin around the neighbors dog. Shoot fire, I'm thinkin bout gettin one for myself, so I don't go wanderin when I get to drinkin.
