    We LOVE this wireless fence!, February 7, 2006

    After much research, we are SO HAPPY we chose this product over the traditional in-ground fences! No worries about ruining any wires when we aerate the lawn or do our landscaping… It’s a very flexible, cost-effective solution and it works GREAT for our very feisty 2-year-old Schnauzer mix. We keep the collar on the lowest correctional setting and to tell you the truth, at this point he probably doesn’t even need the correction — just hearing the warning beep is enough for him. He immediately turns around and gets closer to the house when he hears the beep. It only took one or two days for him to figure out his boundaries. At first he was a little afraid to go outside at all, but within less than a week he was happily playing outside in the “pet area” of the yard. Only drawback to this product is that there’s no “safe gate area” where you can exit the circular pet area. (So we just take the receiver collar off our dog and put on his regular collar when we want to exit the yard to take him for leash walks.) Highly recommend this product.

    Great Purchase, April 7, 2005
    By 

    We purchased this item on Saturday. Hooked it up on Sunday and by Monday afternoon our 5 month old Rat Terrier/Bichon was staying in the yard consistently. We are really pleased with this product. Our dog has been staying in the yard with many people walking by and other dogs passing by as well. It appears that he seldom has to experience the shock, he turns around rather quickly as soon as he hears the warning beep.

    The only difficulty we have encountered is that we have cable and electricity boxes on two corners of our lot and it appears that there is some interference with the signal. We still have the signal , but it is not in the perfect circle from the transmitter that you would expect.

    So far, excellent product, highly recommend. Great alternative to expensive in ground systems, and much easier to install.

    As close to perfect as a wireless system can be!, December 19, 2004

    Since we are in the process of selling our home we decided to give this wireless system a try. FIRST, I would suggest you take your dog’s temperament into consideration. Although I wouldn’t consider our adopted 90 lb. male Weimaraner a wus, he isn’t the Alpha dog either. The training aids were good and he quickly learned how far he could go on static shock level 4. He has since become so accustomed to our establised boundaries that we have lowered it to level 2 (level 1 is just an audible beep). Adjusting the shock level is very easy – it just involves unscrewing a small cover on the collar and depressing a button. On the transmitter, you adjust the RADIUS (remember that the signal is emitted in a circle from the transmitter) using a dial. EASY! It did take some effort to locate it correctly in our home – they suggest it be 24″ off of the floor and it obviously has to be near an outlet, but it can emit a signal up to 90 feet in every direction – that’s a total cross section of 180 feet! The only disadvantage we found – and it is minor – is that if your home sits higher (or lower??) than part of your yard it will add few extra feet to your radius until the collar picks up the signal. This can be overcome if you build this allowance into your transmitters placement. Overall, we are thrilled and we’ve had this about 4 months now. I have had people tell me that once water gets under the battery cover, the battery dies. I don’t know, but after looking at the cover I think it would have to be a downpour before that happened – or maybe the dog went swimming or was bathed? Regardless, I placed a piece of duct tape – not pretty but functional – over the cover to keep this from happening. Finally, we will continue to use this even after we move since it has worked so well. A good investment to protect your pet but PLEASE don’t forget to take the collar off of your dog before putting him in the car and backing our of the garage. YIKES!!!
