The PetSafe wireless PIF-300 dog fence is a number one seller on Amazon.com. Like all products on Amazon, you can read buyer testimonials and see customer ratings. PetSafe makes a number of wireless and underground dog fences.
PetSafe Brand like many other recognizable pet fence companies is covered under the umbrella of their parent company Radio Systems Corporation. This company is dedicated to bringing innovative new products to the pet market. PetSafe is perhaps the most recognizable of all the dog fence companies.
There are two main components of the system. The transmitter and the receiver (collar). Plug in the transmitter somewhere in your home or garage. It needs to be in a dry area. Adjust the circular zone using a dial on the transmitter.
The transmitter will emit a radio signal that is picked up by a lightweight waterproof collar that your dog will wear. When your dog approaches the boundary area he will hear an audible beeping sound. If he continues to move toward the boundary he will be given a static correction.
This correction is adjustable by you. You’ll start the dog’s training with just the beeping sound. Then the lowest correction level. The static correction is much like a static shock you might get if you walk across a carpet and touch something metal.
You’ll also plant the flags provided with the system at the edge of the boundary. This will serve as a temporary visual aid for your dog during his training.
Proper Training is the Key
With a little training, your dog will soon learn where the boundaries are. Training is the key to teaching your pet how to safely stay within the “play zone”. Soon your dog will turn around as soon as he hears the audible beeping sound.
