This is the perfect invisible dog fence with an coverage area of ½ acres and sets up is 1-2 hours with proper instructions. The range diameter is 180 feet, which practically is less, due to the obstacles like terrain, walls and metal objects. The thing is purely wireless, you don’t have to dig any holes or underground any wires. Once synced with the collar, you can carry the system along with you on a vacation or outing. Further, the fence is circular in shape, and you can’t alter it into a rectangle or circle.
The features of this wireless fence is similar to the model reviewed earlier, but this unit contains just transmitter and collar. Polyester Strapped collar has industrial grade plastic case to contain the sensor. The case is water proof, like all the petsafe devices. The collar contains five level of correction, in case your dog is stubborn or big. The best thing about this model is the battery that is included in the sensor. It Uses RFA-67 battery module with 1-2 month expected battery life, with frequent use, it might last lesser.
The device is extremely portable, and you may install it in your home, it looks elegant, and doesn’t really bother anyone. Portability of the device makes it a good option. The performance is good than the low range products. This products falls under the mid-range, but doesn’t have tone mode, you have to invest more for that feature. This product is best if you don’t want tone mode.
It gives instant response to the sensor, when it goes out of the range. There is no lag in the alarm. The collar gets synced easily. The unit is designed for the dog above 5 pounds, neck size usually between 6 to 28 inches. I would recommend you to use less shock for the smaller dogs.
Overall, the unit is value for money, and you will find that every penny you have spent, was for good use. Your pet will get used to the range in 2 days, however, you have to adjust the range, to see that your house is contained in it, and it doesn’t include area more than that.

This wireless fence system performs well and does most of the job. I found this device a good performer. Petsafe products are top of the line, but this one is mid-ranged. If you can spend some more money, you can shift to a wireless unit which has tone mode. It would be better for your dog, as he can learn some tricks. But if you want a simple system, that does a good job, this is the piece. Build quality of the collar is good, and transmitter is accurate.
