We have a large Golden Retriever that had learned to run through the regular collar that came with the system. The stubborn dog collar works! He had been chasing after us when we leave and visiting the neighbors. No more. He stays well within the boundary now. We are impressed.
I have had the same wireless system for 8 years with no problems and the collars work great also. I have had to replace the collars twice since purchasing the system but is more due to my pack chewing them on each other lol -getting ready to order two more. Love this system and I have 6 dogs that hop a 5 feet fence without them - now they stay back from the perimeter!
I have had this system for several years and I love it. I have 3 yorkies and they are wonders this keeps them in our yard. GREAT GREAT GREAT!! I have never had any problems with the collars or the system. Both work great. There have been times when one of my grandchildren changed the setting on the receiver or the batteries died quick easy fix. I have never had to recalibrate the collars. Best product I ever purchased.
I purchased the 3/4 acre model due to us having a 2 acre property that would have been incredibly time consuming and expensive to out a fence up on. I purchased the set at my local Ace Hardware store and followed the training to the Tee offering TONS of positive reinforcement/treats when my pup of no more than 3 months followed instructions. I admit, she is a smart, disciplined dog but has broken containment a couple of times when the kids and I left the yard, but I had the collar set to Level 4. When it happened I scolded her, returned her home and bumped up the collar to DEFCON 5 and she has not broken containment since. I have been thoroughly pleased with the results. Our dog jumps in and out of our pool all summer and we have not had a minute's trouble with the collar. One charge lasts weeks. The transmitter was bad out of the box, Petsafe worked with me to get it replaced quickly.
What I like best about Petsafe is that they really stand by their products. My Instant Fence is 15+ years old and still works great. When my new dog ran through the barrier, I called customer support and was prepared to hear them give the usual "sorry, we no longer support that technology" spiel. Instead, she took the time to look up and find a stronger collar that would be compatible with my older system. My new stubborn dog collar really lives up to its name as my dog no longer runs through the barrier. I have already recommended your products to 2 of my co-workers. Thanks again, Petsafe!
I cannot say how much this has worked for us. We have 2 dogs who love to run our yard. We have them in side and can just open door and know they won't leave the yard. My dogs have a very large pen for when we are gone but we let them run when we are home. We have used for 5 years and my dogs have never left the yard through the wireless fence. We have a big dog and a small dog. It works for both sizes. This is not a training collar, it stays on them permanently.
I got this a month ago and already had to charge collar. The battery style lasted slot longer. Switched to this for my “stubborn dog” but on top setting my blue heeler still break boundaries: he is 5 and just started doing that this year
I bought this system on recommendation of my neighbor who has the same system. The problem is, me and my neighbor operate on the same frequency because there is no other option. This leads to all kinds of issues between the two systems. There is a "no-mans land" where our yards meets. Our neighbors dogs get zapped within their own house etc. This issue would be simply solved if there was a 2 frequency option. Otherwise, it works great.
