Description

The PetSafe Stubborn Dog In-Ground Fence System has 4 higher-intensity settings than standard in-ground fences and gives an audible when hard-headed hounds get too close to the boundary. For older pets or pups with selective hearing, a vibration-only mode gets their attention and reminds them that rules are there for a reason and there's plenty of fun to be had in the yard.

Instructions

Troubleshooting

Receiver Collar is not beeping or correcting.

  • Check battery to make sure it is installed properly.
  • Check that both lights are lit on the Fence Transmitter. If not, perform the “System Test” (page 26).

The Receiver Collar is beeping, but the pet is not responding to the Static Correction.

  • Test the Receiver Collar with the Test Light walking toward the Boundary Wire.
  • 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.

The Receiver Collar has to be held on top of the Boundary Wire to activate.

  • Replace battery.
  • Adjust Boundary Width Control knob clockwise to increase the distance from the Boundary Wire that the Receiver Collar activates. Verify the Boundary Control Switch is placed at the proper setting according to the amount of Boundary Wire used. (See Step 6)
  • If using a Double Loop, make sure Boundary Wires are separated at least 5 feet.
  • 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 counterclockwise to decrease the distance from the Boundary Wire that the Receiver Collar activates.
  • Make sure the Boundary Wire is not running within 15 feet of the house. The signal can transmit through the walls of your house.
  • Make sure Boundary Wires are twisted from Boundary to the Fence Transmitter

The Receiver 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 light is no longer illuminated. Reinstall battery.

I have an inconsistent signal.

  • Make sure Fence Transmitter is at least 3 feet from large metal objects or appliances.
  • Make sure all Boundary Wire turns are gradual with a minimum 3 foot radius.
  • Make sure the Boundary Wire is not running parallel to and within 10 feet 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 GFCI or RCD outlet, check to see if the circuit has been tripped. Reset the GFCI or RCD circuit if required.
  • Verify that the outlet is working properly by plugging in a known working item such as a radio.
  • Try plugging 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.

The Power Light is on, the Loop Indicator Light is off, and the Fence Transmitter loop alarm is sounding.

  • Check Boundary Wire connections at the Fence Transmitter for proper connection.
  • Check for broken or damaged Boundary Wires at outside entry to the house.
  • Perform the “System Test” (page 26) to determine if the Fence Transmitter or Surge Protector 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” (page 27) section in this guide.
Size

The proper fit and placement of your receiver collar is important for effective training. The contact points must have direct contact with your pets skin on the underside of their neck.

  1. Make sure the receiver collar is turned off.

  2. Start with your pet standing comfortably.

  3. Center the contact points underneath your pets neck, touching the skin. If your pet has a long or thick coat, consider using the long contact points to reach through the fur. These can be purchased online or from our Customer Care Center. Note: It is sometimes necessary to trim the hair around the contact points to make sure that contact is consistent.

  4. Check the tightness of the receiver collar by inserting one finger between the end of a contact point and your pets neck. The fit should be snug but not constricting.

  5. Allow your pet to wear the collar for several minutes then recheck the fit. Check the fit again as your pet becomes more comfortable with the receiver collar.
  6. If you'd like to to trim the collar strap, mark the desired length of the receiver collar with a pen. Allow for growth if your pet is young or grows a thick winter coat. Remove the receiver collar from your pet and cut off the excess. If your receiver has a nylon strap, seal the edge of the cut collar by applying a flame along the frayed edge.

If your collar is a QuickFit collar, it is designed so you can quickly attach and remove the Receiver Collar from your pet while maintaining the desired fit.

  1. With the Snap Buckle fastened, thread the collar through the Metal Buckle.

  2. Slide the excess collar through the “C” Loop on top of the Snap Buckle. This will hold the excess collar in place.

  3. Once the collar fit is determined, use the Snap Buckle to remove and replace the collar.

Replacing the Receiver on a New Collar Strap

  1. Slide the receiver off the old strap.

  2. Slide the receiver on the new strap.

  3. Adjust the slide buckle so the collar won't become loose around your pet’s neck.

  4. Make sure the ridges are facing up or the collar may slip.

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.

    When it’s working it’s a good system

    By on

    Works well when it’s working. More often than not the unit is not working properly. We even ordered more wire in Oct because the unit started acting up within weeks after we installed it. We wanted it fixed before winter. Dug up the original wire thinking there was a kink or a break, Nope. Replaced the wire anyway, checking depth making sure everything was perfect. Unit still acting the same, beeping & many times just not working at all. The dog tests her collar, (she is an Australian Shepherd & very smart) if she doesn’t get the warning signal she knows she won’t get a shock and off wandering she will go. Even found her sitting in the street one afternoon. Just can’t trust the unit! We have Works well when it’s working. More often than not the unit is not working properly.

My husband is an electrical engineer so I’m sure the unit is hooked up properly. This thing even has him stumped. Such a shame especially since many years ago I had this type of system in a previous yard & never had a problem. Just at a loss as to what to do. guess we have no choice but to check into fencing in our yard- … more

    Works great

    By on

    I stapled the fence to my wooden fence and ran a double loop. Took no time to run the wire. The instructions were a little confusing for me to understand how to wire from the transmitter, and I didn’t know how to set the transmitter. But I called customer service and they were very nice and helped me troubleshoot in minutes. System works great and dogs have learned their boundaries in only a day or 2. The wire included wasn’t enough to run the transmitter into the house so I bought an outdoor junction box and have an extension cord running to the outdoor power outlet.

    Works Great for 5 acres

    By on

    After my stubborn young Chesapeake left our property and attacked a neighbor's chicken, we installed this around our entire 5-acre property. It keeps Leo in and he learned the boundaries quickly. Sometimes I leave the collar off if he's out with me, but he still won't cross the boundary, lol.

    Definitely works

    By on

    I bought this fence for my two stubborn dogs. It definitely works to keep them in the yard. It works so well that the dogs are afraid to go out sometimes! I'm having to retrain to get through that. But at least I'm not getting ticketed for having dogs run loose!

    Petsafe fence

    By on

    I called Chewy.com because our petsafe in ground fence was not working. We had purchased it in the spring. Immediately they sent us a new one for free. Thanks to them our German Short Hair is running free again! If she could speak she would thank them profusely after being held hostage in the house for a week. Thanks! Excellent customer service!

    Pet Safe Containment Fence.

    By on

    We first purchased a Pet Safe Containment Fence back in 1999. We loved how great it worked. This one works just as good as the old one. We recently got a new puppy and it is working like a champ. He already knows his boundaries and doesn't even try to cross! Also, it came in like two days! Thanks Chewy!

    Works like a Champ!

    Great product. I recommend using a edger/trencher to install. That’s what I did and it went flawlessly.

    It works for stubborn dogs.

    By on

    This fence really works. We had to turn it up strong at first and well it did freak them out but they are getting adventurous each day meaning they are starting to explore where they can and can't go. The yellow wire it comes with works but is not as strong as the higher end wire we got. I give it a 5 star.

    Great Product!

    By on

    I ordered this product around 11pm on a Tuesday night and it arrived to my house on Thursday afternoon! Such quick service. My husband installed this system around our property and it works like a charm. No worrying about the puppy running away or getting to the road. Peace of mind when we are at work!
