We recently purchased a wireless PetSafe system because one of our neighbors has one and it works great with his dog (smaller than our dog but aggressive). Our problem is we have set the collar on 1 then 2 and it does not seem to stop him from crossing the lines (training). You can tell it is shocking him but he charges on. When he hears the kids next door off he goes. How high should the collar be set without causing him any damage? We think he is a chow (black tongue) and lab mix. Also, I didn’t realize when buying this unit that once they break through it stops shocking them. We don’t have a problem with the circular area just wondering if there is something better or something we need to do differently.

An electric dog fence is a great tool for teaching your dog about boundaries but should not be used as a fence. Your dog still needs supervision. An underground dog fence has wire that you bury underground. The wire needs to go from a signal box, around the perimeter and back to box. A dog collar reacts to a radio signal when your dog gets close to the wire. The dog will first hear a tone and then will receive a slight shock. A wireless dog fence has a signal box that you place in one remote area. There is a 180′ diameter circle. When your dog wearing the linked dog collar approaches the edge of the signal boundary, the dog will hear a tone followed by a slight shock. Clear Boundaries with Dog Guard offers cat fencing, wireless dog fence, dog training & shock collars in Clarksville, Dickson and Franklin, TN.

Simple Pet Wireless Electric Dog Fence works exactly as advertised, but may not be for all dogs. My strong-willed dog, Dexter, is medium sized (38lbs) and can jump our 6 foot fence. Needless to say, we are worried he will get hurt from the jump, oncoming traffic, etc. When this fence was delivered we opened up the case and found an extra fuse, led lightbulb to test the contacts, extra contacts for the collar, the collar, the collar's battery, visual warning flags, wire and the control box. There are also, suppose to be two wire nuts included, but my kit was missing those. The control box has an area where you can change the fuse. Next to the fuse in use is a place for the extra fuse. This area for the extra fuse is too large and the extra fuse will fall out. We immediately read the instructions that are easy-to-read and understand. We decided to drape the wire in a circle to test that it works before installation and it did.

The fence does work if you install correctly! I think that is a reason so many are having difficulties. 1) Do not bury more than 1.5 inch in the ground, it says 1-3 inches, but I would keep as close to the top as you can. 2) Make sure there is nothing interfering with the wires, like large metal sheds, metal swingsets, power boxes, etc 3) Make sure that the loop of wire isn't near one another 4) Keep the collar comfortably tight, not so it's choking, but that the contacts keep from moving much. 5) That the control box is kept in an area safe from the weather. The big issue is deciding how to map out the wire, so it loops and stays away from interference.

My wire is buried in some areas and the other areas it is either weaving in and out of wooden planks or draped along wooden fence. The wire is fed through my window, so the control box can remain inside. The window is able to close and lock completely while the fence is still working. We attached the wire in to the terminals of the control box and adjusted the width of signal.

We took the collar outside with the provided LED bulb to test that the static electricity was functioning in the areas you do not want the dog. When we heard the alarm from the collar we would place the flags. Then we set on mode two which is the lightest static charge and it increases to mode 5. I then would walk Dexter to the fence until it started beeping and then walked him back. When he would hear the beeping and walk away I would praise him. Dexter responded well just to the beeping noise, as long as, I was beside him. When I walked through the gate to really test him he immediately jumped it to get to me. We then increased to mode three, he jumped over, then mode four, he yelped and jumped over, mode five, he yelped and pulled himself over the gate. Like I said, he's a strong-willed dog! I believe he realized if he could endure that few seconds of shock while he went over the fence that it would stop and leave him to his freedom.The Wireless Containment System covers a circular area of up to 180 feet in diameter, providing ample room for dogs to explore and enjoy the outdoors in a safe environment. For dogs 8 lbs. and over with a neck size of up to 28 inches, this wireless system comes complete with training flags, an easy-to-install receiver, and a collar. The collar receives a signal from the transmitter when the dog approaches the boundary and delivers either an audible warning or a shock. This model is particularly popular because, unlike many other models, it is not limited to only one or two collars.
