Too Inconsistent to be TrustedWe have owned the Petsafe Wireless Containment System for two years. We purchased it on Amazon in August of 2016. As we trained our German Shepherd using the wireless containment system, we followed the directions precisely. At first, things worked well. Our dog knew her boundary. The system worked when it need to, and our dog knew to run back toward the house when she had gone too far.
But as time went on, the system became more and more inconsistent. All dogs need consistency, especially German Shepherds. At times, the system would start to shock her while she was safely inside her zone. At other times, the system wouldn't shock her when she went beyond her boundary. We tried trouble shooting by unplugging the transmitter and plugging it back in again. We changed batteries in her collar. We tried adjusting the circumference of her circle. Sometimes it would work, but inevitably, it would go back to its inconsistent ways.
Today was the last straw. I was outside with our German Shepherd when someone walked by with his dog. The other dog was safely outside of our dog's radius, but because the system has been so inconsistent recently, my dog ran to the other dog. Thankfully, I was able to call her back right away, but I could tell the other dog owner was a little frightened by the experience. And I don't blame him! My dog should have stayed in her yard. But the system failed to work. Then, as I was bringing my dog into the house, safely within the containment system, the collar started zapping her without warning. She completely freaked out, and she is now terrified to go into our kitchen and out the back door.
Needless to say, I'm done with this product. I cannot recommend it as it currently works to anyone who loves their pet. It is too inconsistent and can cause more damage than good. I wish it worked. I wish it did what it promised. I wish I got what I paid for. But instead I have a nervous dog who gets shocked inside the house, safely inside her radius, and doesn't get shocked when she goes outside of the safe zone.

Affordable, Portable and it really works!We live on 5 acres in the country. A physical fence would limit seeing wildlife in the back yard and a permanent underground fence seemed to restrictive. Per recommendations, we purchased the wireless pet containment system. It was a game changer! We can adjust the diameter and take it with us when visiting the folks. "Maggie" no longer challenges the perimeter even if she sees deer, squirrels or other critters.

Love this product!!I bought this fence about 3 years ago. It has worked great for my high energy puppy who needs to run. I can take it with me when I travel. I was saddened about a week ago, i discovered that my collar wasnt working despite putting new batteries in it. Got on here to order a replacement collar but was deterred by the cost then decided to try customer service first. They were very helpful and got my collar to reset!!! I cannot even tell you how much I love this product!! I would definitely recommend!!!!
