Perfect for those who travel with their dogs, the PetSafe Wireless Fence is designed for those who can appreciate setting up and taking down their wireless fence with ease. You simply need to plug in the wireless transmitter, set the size of your circle and your dog’s training is ready to begin.
Its wireless signal is projected in the form of a circle. You are able to choose the size, but the largest it can be is 180 feet across, which equals about ½ of an acre. However, you should be aware that the wireless signal can be somewhat variable, unlike the dependability of a wired fence. A wireless fence is great in that you don’t have to dig, splice or twist wire, but it also means that your boundaries may fluctuate from time to time, depending on outside conditions.
Overall, this is a great system. The only problem is that it does not have a rechargeable collar. It runs specifically on PetSafe® proprietary batteries, so you will need to have a few extras of these on hand for when the battery runs dry.
The PetSafe® wireless collar is completely waterproof. Its nylon collar band and plastic clip closure are easy to use and comfortable for your pet. This system is perfect if you have several dogs, as it can accommodate an unlimited number of them. You just need to purchase additional collars if you have more than one dog.
The great thing is that you get to customize the correction level you need for each dog. There are 5 levels of correction, which are adjusted on the collar itself. There is also a tone only mode for training. The system is designed for dogs that weigh 8 pounds or more.
It is convenient that the unit is so portable. It can be brought along with you on vacation and easily set up wherever you take your dog. All you need is an electrical outlet.
The system lets you adjust the size of the boundary according to your needs. You just turn the easy to use boundary control dial to do it. The maximum size of the circle that you set is 90 feet in all directions, which is a circle of about ½ of an acre.
And there you have it. Although it lacks a rechargeable battery, the PetSafe® Wireless Fence is an excellent choice.
