PetSafe Wireless Pet Containment System
A revolutionary concept from the PetSafe Wireless Pet Containment System that provides the safest, simplest form of pet containment ever.
All you need to do is plug in the transmitter in your home. It can be installed in a discreet location. You should set this up at a point from where you want to allow your pet to go up to a maximum of 90 feet away.

Anyone who owns a dog knows how difficult it is to establish boundaries with them. In this case, literally – how do you explain to your dog where your property ends and where your neighbour’s property begins?
And if your dog is excitable like mine, you’re looking at a very strong likelihood of a lawsuit that’s going to be very expensive to settle. You see, my dog loves people and doesn’t realize that being a Saint Bernard, people find his size intimidating. Especially so when people see him running towards them with his huge jaws open wide.
With the PetSafe Wireless Pet Containment System, you can define an approximate radius from the transmitter to the distance you wish to allow your pet to go. If he tries to cross this distance, he receives a mild beep followed by a static correction if he keeps going further.
The system comes with 50 training boundary flags. These flags serve as visual reminders for a pet as to where his boundaries are. These should be setup along the perimeters of the boundary you have setup for your pet. When he approaches these flags, his collar should beep. If he crosses the flag, he receives a static correction. You don’t need to worry about your beloved baby being electrocuted – the automatic safety shut-off will prevent any chance of that happening. The static correction stops after 30 seconds without your intervention.
The PetSafe Wireless Pet Containment System offers 5 adjustable levels of correction, plus a tone-only mode. The tone-only mode does not give out any static correction.
Ok, so I know the question popping up in everyone’s mind — The 5 levels of static correction. How severe is the static correction and is it going to hurt my dog?
Well, great question and the answer is, NO – it is a mild static correction, not an electric chair effect. The PetSafe Wireless Pet Containment System is meant to help you train your dog about the boundaries he is allowed to roam within. It is not meant to punish him. It certainly won’t act like a taser, incapacitating your dog.
Here’s some REAL PROOF of how the PetSafe Wireless Pet Containment System doesn’t cause harm. Check out this video:
In this, the man tests out the PetSafe Wireless Pet Containment System’s collar on HIMSELF! Yes, you heard that right. He wears the collar and heads towards the boundary flags. He starts with the static correction at level 1 and takes it up to level 5. He isn’t lying on the ground with involuntary spasms even at level 5.
You should note however, that level 5 is the most intense and does seem to knock some of the wind out of this guy. I would, therefore recommend that you train your dog at a lower level, maybe a level 2 or 3 and ONLY if required, a level 4. If you’re even considering a level 5, one of the other things I would personally consider is the size of the dog – I wouldn’t use a level 5 setting on any of the smaller breeds.
The other really interesting part of this video which should be noticed is that the dog does not cross the boundary flags even though his master does. And this is even though the dog isn’t wearing the collar any longer – it’s on his master’s neck. The dog has been trained and understands the boundary within which he must stay.
The best part about this system is that you can reduce the area from a maximum of 90 feet to a minimum of approximately 5 feet by adjusting the dial on the transmitter. Some people have used the system while camping to keep their dog restricted to the campsite.
You can use a second transmitter if you wish to increase the area from a maximum of 90 feet. All you need to do is to position them so that the boundaries overlap by a few feet.

Your pet, who should weigh 8 pounds or more, wears a collar that receives a signal from the transmitter. The collar is lightweight and won’t feel uncomfortable to your pet. The transmitter emits a radio signal at 17.5 kHz frequency.
You can purchase a second (or more) collar if you have more than one pet. The single transmitter will control both the collars and keep all your pets within the designated area.

Your pet is free to run around anywhere within the approximately 180 feet diameter of the location of the transmitter. As he / she tries to step outside the boundary of the signal area, he / she receives a warning beep. If he / she do not return closer to the transmitter (thus returning within the boundary defined), he / she receives a mild static correction which will startle but is certainly not harmful.
With this training a few times, your pet will quickly learn about the boundaries of your property and the point beyond which he / she is not allowed to go.
The beep and the static correction are key elements of the PetSafe Wireless Pet Containment System and with these, you will find eventually that your pet recognizes the boundaries you have defined for him / her and will respect them.
Please note that the PetSafe Wireless Pet Containment System is designed for use in the US only. The PetSafe Wireless Pet Containment System requires 110v outlets and cannot be used with international 220v.
