Are you always worried about your dog running away from home? Are you getting tired of chasing your dog over and over again? If yes, then you should get this: the Petsafe PIF-300 Wireless 2-Dog Fence Containment System. This device trains your dog to stay within the confines of an area by shocking it when it goes beyond the boundaries. That way, your dog will learn where it is allowed to go and where it is not allowed. For a small investment, you can get plenty of relief later on.
The Product's Main Benefits
– The product does not give the dog unnecessary shocks.
Here is how the product works: you let the dog wear the collar and you place the transmitter somewhere. If the dog goes beyond the boundary, it will receive a shock. However, if the dog is just nearing the boundary, it will hear a warning tone. After a few shocks, the dog will learn where it can't go beyond because the dog will associate the shocks and the warning tone with going beyond the boundary.
– The product's coverage is a circular region up to 180 feet in diameter.
This does not mean that 180 feet from the transmitter is the boundary. You can adjust the boundary to have a diameter less than 180 feet if you want, depending on how close you want your dog to be with you. Also, you can change the boundary distance easily. For example, if you change the boundary diameter from 180 feet to 90 feet, then your dog will easily adapt without getting shocked too much. The warning tone will take care of that.
– The system is fit for two dogs.
That's why the product comes with an extra collar. Having an extra dog yields no disadvantage.
– The receiver collar is waterproof.
Even if your dog strays in the rain, it will still receive warning tones and shocks as appropriate. The collar will still work. Dog training should stop just because it is raining.
– You can hide the transmitter on any place you think the dog can't find.
That way, you are sure that the dog won't subvert the training in any way. Also, you can change the transmitter's location if needed and the dogs can easily adapt.
– The product comes with a manual for setup and training.
With that, you can easily find out how the product is optimally used.
Some of the Product's Cons
The product has no serious cons. There are a few minor cons, though. The 6-volt battery that you should use is not rechargeable; you have to buy many of them as reserves. Also, sometimes the batteries are hard to remove from the unit, but that can be learned easily.
Customer Opinions About the Product
The greatest gains from the product went to customers who had hyperactive dogs before. One customer from a rural area was highly relieved from using the product. Her two dogs became more disciplined, even in the open spaces of her backyard. She said that she tried many other products before she bought the Petsafe PIF-300 Wireless 2-Dog Fence Containment System, and from then on she stuck with it.
Additionally, many dog owners said that after using the product for some time, the dogs became more responsive to verbal commands. The dogs may have been afraid of the shocks, or they may have been more obedient than they were before product use. Either way, the owners benefited much.
