So you finally got that piece of land you have always dreamed about. Now you can sit on your porch and watch the wildlife as it passes through. Your loyal pooch is at your side and ready to run the day away. However, you have to keep him and the wildlife safe. The PetSafe Rechargeable In-Ground Fence can do just that. It provides a barrier for your pet without having to build an unsightly fence by giving a static correction (a gentle electric shock) when Fido gets too close to the boundaries you set.

What are the pros of this dog fence?
- Rechargeable collar
With the rechargeable collar you will no longer need to worry about replacing batteries. The collar has a low battery indicator and can be fully charged in 2-3 hours. Each charge can last up to 2 months.
- Supports Multiple Pets
Multiple pets can be added to the system as long as they have compatible collars. The collars supported with this system are PIG00- 13737, PUL-275, PRF-275-19, PIG00-11006, and PIG00-10778.
- Supports pets of various sizes
Does your spouse like a small dog and you like a larger breed? No problem. The rechargeable collar supports neck sizes from 6 inches to 26 inches and can be used on dogs as small as 5 pounds.
- Run through prevention
This PetSafe system offers a unique “run through” prevention feature. As your pet approaches the boundary a warning tone will be sounded. If he/she continues towards the boundary your preset stimulation levels 1-4, will be submitted by the collar. If your pet proceeds 20% into the boundary area increased stimulation will be sent regardless of your presets. Should your pet “freeze” or stand still while in the correction zone, the static correction will not be given for more than 15 seconds, to prevent injury.
Installation of the in-ground fence system can be quite time consuming depending on the area you want to cover, and whether you need to cross any paved areas. Some people can simply staple the wire to existing fencing (to discourage the dog from digging under the fence) but most will probably want to bury it, since the whole point is to be invisible. It only needs to be buried a few inches, which is good if your land is hard or rocky. The instructions go into good detail about how to install in different scenarios, and they also offer professional installation at your location, as well as useful tips and tricks on their website.
What are its cons?
- Length of provided fencing
The PetSafe Rechargeable collar system comes with only 500 feet of 20 gauge wiring and 50 training flags. This will cover the area of a large suburban backyard. If you have a large dog that needs more running room or you have a bigger area you would like covered you will need to buy additional wiring and training flags.
