PetSafe Stay And Play Electronic Wireless Pet Fence For Dogs And Cats Over 5 Pounds

'Electronic Dog Fence

Finally a Wireless Electronic Pet Fence for Cats

On each of PetSafe’s wireless Electronic pet fence transmitters, the range of the Electronic signal field can be adjusted at the Boundary Dial anywhere from just a few feet radius from the transmitter to a much larger coverage area for safe roaming of pets. As we all remember learning in our high school geometry days, the diameter of a circle is double its radius. Everyone remembers that, right? :-)

The PetSafe Stay And Play Electronic Wireless Pet Fence PIF00-13210 Transmitter (the black object pictured to the right in the system’s graphic on the right side of this page) which comes bundled with the PetSafe Stay And Play Electronic Wireless Pet Fence PIF00-12917 For Dogs And Cats Over 5 Pounds allows for a containment field range of a 17′ radius (for a 34′ diameter minimum containment zone) up to a 105′ radius (for a 210′ diameter maximum or about 3/4 acre containment zone) – somewhat wider than the 15′ (for a 30′ diameter minimum containment zone) up to a 90′ radius (for a 180′ diameter maximum or about 1/2 acre containment zone) available with the PetSafe Instant Fence Wireless Fence Transmitter IF-100 which comes bundled with the PetSafe Instant Fence Wireless Fence PIF-300 For Dogs Over 8 Pounds – the only wireless pet fence we had available for outdoor use in our online pet store until the recent release of the new PetSafe Stay And Play Electronic Fence.

The shape of the signal emanating from any one transmitter is always a perfect circle (actually a globe) and that shape is unalterable but, with either system, multiple base stations (transmitters) can be combined and overlapped to create larger containment areas of multiple overlapping intersecting circles. Of course, one can’t see the Electronic field as it is invisible but the shape of the boundary created by any 2 coupled transmitters could be visualized as being similar to that of the MasterCard™ logo. The signal is cancelled where the circles intersect allowing your pet access to the entire containment area created by the intersecting circles. Each transmitter can be set for a different range.

The range of either the PetSafe Instant Fence Wireless Electronic Fence PIF-300 For Dogs Over 8 Pounds or the PetSafe Stay And Play Wireless Electronic Pet Fence PIF00-12917 For Dogs And Cats Over 5 Pounds can be increased by the addition of transmitters regardless of which transmitter is used with which system which is to say that these two systems and their respective components are compatible and interchangeable such that you can mix and match. The advantage of this is that anyone who already owns the PetSafe Instant Fence Wireless Electronic Fence PIF-300 For Dogs Over 8 Pounds (and there are many) could use any number of Stay and Play Wireless Electronic Fence Receiver Collars PIF00-12918 to contain any number of pets within the same boundary already up and running with a PetSafe Instant Fence Wireless Electronic Fence Transmitter IF-100 and the sleeker design of the newer collar makes it ideal for smaller dogs and even cats. Likewise as the PetSafe Instant Fence Wireless Electronic Fence Transmitter IF-100 is far less expensive than the PetSafe Stay And Play Wireless Electronic Pet Fence PIF00-12917 For Dogs And Cats Over 5 Pounds, it is a viable substitute as the difference in the size of the boundary ranges is marginal.

Of course, as with every item in our online pet store, the Stay And Play does come with a money back guarantee so a customer may ship it back to the warehouse if it does not meet his or her expectations and only be responsible for the cost of shipping back and forth.

      Review by S. Graves for Rating: I started with the PETSafe PIF-300 wirleess fence, but to maximize the yard space for Miles, my 85lb chocolate lab, I was half in both neighbors yards, so the traditional in-ground fence made more sense as I could choose the extreme boundaries on all sides of the yard.I bought a second hand 1/2 hp edger to dig the trench which did a great job. Laid out the boundary line and used a paint stick to tuck in in the trench. My two boys helped cover the trench by doing a congo-line along the rift twisting their feet as they walked. Lots of fun. Ran a line from the side yard nearest the garage and used a power drill to twist the wire. Plugged them into the unit and it was good to go. Very easy installation, but requires a little patience to tuck 500 feet of wire into a trench.We set the collar on beep only first, walked Miles around the perimeter marked with flags, and gave him a treat each time he came back into the safe zone. Did this many many times. Then increased the static correction level on it’s lowest setting. He seemed completely unaffected by it. I tried it on my leg. Not much to write home about, but I’m sure works for a smaller dog. So, I increased the level to 3 (flashes). Better, but we finally settled on 4 before Miles even had a reaction to it. This is good because no matter what size your dog is, you can adjust this to your needs. Again, I tried it through my jeans on my leg. It was enough to get my attention, but was not inhumane or painful. Within a couple of hours, Miles had figured out the flags and beeps went together and he stayed in the yard.Over the next couple of days, Miles only got outside the boundary twice. We figured out the collar was too loose and wasn’t making contact. A little slack taken up, and he’s not even tried to get out since. Miles loves the new arrangement. At the old house he had the backyard to himself with a chain-link fence. He paced paths, barked at everyone walking the neighborhood, and seemed anxious. With the in-ground fence going from the front curb to the boundary of the backyard, he has total access to everything which he loves. He just lays in the front yard during the day and watches people, cars, and dogs walk by without a bark. I guess the distance between the front and back with the chain-link was just too much for him, but now he’s really happy.I would highly recommend this product and intend to install new wire should we move again and take the unit with us. Money very well spent. Note: If you don’t have close neighbors, the wirleess option is very cool, just keep in mind the shape of your yard and how large a diameter circle you want to work with. Wired is great in that you can exclude flower beds or other areas of your yard like a garden that you might not want the dog getting into.

        Thank you for your comprehensive and informative evaluation of our systems. I’m glad to hear Miles is happy and has adjusted well to the installation. We usually recommend our PetSafe Stubborn Dog system for Labs and Lab mixes. Is that the wired system you are using to contain him?

        You are quite correct about the wired systems giving you more flexibility in terms of putting gardens, pool areas, flower beds, etc. off limits. I am glad you found it to be a good investment and we appreciate your endorsement. Your installation story is cute and made me chuckle. :-)

    You actually make it appear really easy together with your presentation however I in finding this topic to be really something which I think I might never understand. It kind of feels too complex and very large for me. I am having a look forward on your next submit, I’ll try to get the cling of it!
