PetSafe Stubborn Dog In-Ground Fence
Setting up the fence was work - no kidding. But the first time I saw that our dog did NOT run into the street, it was worth every minute. Follow the training directions! No shortcuts. When placing it in the ground, I used an ice chipper to cut the ground and a paint mix stick to help put it in. Short grass is easier to work in than long. Good luck!

Product works great!
This product does all it says it will do. It was easy to install and tech support answered all our questions. I have a Giant Schnauzer who runs with the neighbors dog along a chain link fence and had hurt himself. After a couple trips to the vet we decided to try this to keep him away from the fence. It works like a champ! My dog is on the mend and things have calmed down here.
The only improvement I would make is a low battery industry on the collar. Well worth the money!!!

I bought this system and got it installed but it took me several months to actually start training my dog. I debated on which system to get as I have a Yorkie who turned out to be 10 lbs. my hesitation was only due to my fear that my little dog would freak out when she got zapped and then be afraid to even go outside. When installing it both my husband and I got zapped accidentally when testing the line so we knew what it felt like. It wasn't great but certainly not harmful. And neither of us could hear the beep the dog hears so had to rely on the light feature when setting up the flags. After several days of training we were in the driveway and Annie started down to say hi to our neighbor and got too close and got her first zap. She let out a tiny squeal mostly from surprise vs pain. I praised her. And gave her extra loving and saw that she wasn't freaked out and has been zapped several times so now stays inside her boundary even if she is chasing the neighbor's cat...she stops at her boundary.

The Pet safe stuborn dog system
I have two German Shepherd Dogs that weigh 105 & 150 pounds and this system works!
The dogs might get close to the underground wire and a beep sounds and they back away. They have been zapped only a few times during their training and they understand how it works.
I would recomend this product.
