If your yard is close to a main road or open woodland area then you might be reluctant to let you pet out. After all you want to keep them safe and without a tall fence to keep them in, there are no guarantees that they will be. So what choices do you have to keep your pet safe? You can spend hundreds on building a fence or you could buy the PetSafe in-ground fencing system for a fraction of the cost.
Do the customers like this product?
Most customers seemed more than satisfied with the in-ground fence however many pointed out how quick the wire wears out. Some customers have admitted that they bought wire that wasn’t from the PetSafe range that worked much better.
The first thing you notice when you open the in-ground fence system is that you are provided with everything you might need to get your fence set up. Often when you buy in-ground products you are given half of what need to build the system but you are given ample wiring and training flags to make this worth your money ten times over.
The build quality isn’t fantastic and in the transmitter isn’t designed with style in mind, that being said though if you plug it in out of eye sight then it doesn’t much matter. The transmitter is made of white plastic though and over time you can expect it to discolour. Especially if anyone in your household smokes.
The rechargeable collar is great; you only have to charge it for three hours to get around two months use out of it, which is much longer than the standard battery operated collar, that typically only lasts for a month. The collar is also a lot less bulky than many of the collars that come with these kits, which means that your animal should be comfortable wearing it within minimum fuss.
What are the pros of this dog fence?
- Rechargeable collar.
The collar is easily recharged and lasts for around two months. This is much longer than the typical battery operated collar and will save you money in the long run, as you won’t have to buy expensive batteries to keep your system running.
- Ample wire (500 feet)
Some kits leave a lot to be desired when it comes to how much wire they provide. However this isn’t one of those kits. You get enough wire to set out your fence and have some left over in case you need to repair any at a later day.
- Plenty of training flags (50)
PetSafe want to make sure that the transition for your pet is as effortless as possible and provide you with all the information you need to help train your pet. This includes plenty of flag markers to ensure that you pet can learn its boundaries.
- Well-designed collar.
Unlike many of the kits that come with bulky collars, the collar that comes with this kit is perfect for your pets. The design isn’t too bulky, it’s fully adjustable and it isn’t too weighted. You will find that your pet accepts their new collar much quicker than you might think.
What are its cons?
- Wire breaks easily
While you are given ample wire for you to fence up your yard, you might find that you often have to replace segments of your fence. The wire breaks quite easily so you might find yourself running out sooner than you think.
- Made out of cheap plastic
The transmitter isn’t made out of the greatest materials nor is it styled to look fashionable, however does that matter when you can plug it in behind your sofa?
The In-ground fence is a great solution for your needs, with the rechargeable collar this product does stand out from many of the others that are on the market.
