Great product just don’t use inside your home

Summary:I am actually impressed with the performance of this product. It has taught my dog how to stay within our yard. We have been using it for about 6 months and the results were great. Our dog has quickly learned how to stay within the boundary line in just a week. Just a reminder for other users, do not let your dog wear this inside your house. There is a high possibility that your dog will get false corrections. My dog did. I called up customer service thinking that we received a defective product. But they said that it was only because there are lots of metallic objects inside the house that could interfere with the signal. And they were right. After that, we’ve never used it inside our house and the false corrections no longer occurred. Thanks Petsafe for a wonderful product.
Pros:Good performance, Best product
Cons:Inside house

Summary:We were in dire need of a product to help us with our very active dog. Our dog loves to run around and we live in a neighborhood wherein there is a lot of area for him to roam around. We didn’t want to keep him in the house. We tried to do this but we saw that our dog didn’t like being “trapped” inside the house. We wanted something that would still let him run around free but will help us be assured that he stays within his limits. This product solved all our problems. It allowed our dog to still continue enjoying the outdoors while giving us peace of mind that he will not wander off. He immediately learned his boundaries after two days of training him. The tone before correction was a wonderful extra feature. Eventually, that was all our dog needed. At least he wouldn’t have to be zapped each time he tries to run across the boundary. But this seldom happens now because he has completely learned to stay within our yard.
Pros:Tone Feature, Best Product
Be careful with it in your house

Summary:The product is actually great. But we have some issues with the signal strength. Sometimes the correction doesn’t work and the dog doesn’t get zapped if needed. I’m not sure why this is happening. When it’s working, the results are amazing. My dog eventually learned how to stay within the boundary. But during the whole training session, we had a lot of stoppages due to the signal disruption. If my dog hasn’t learned how to stop running away, I would have given this 1 star. I’m giving it 3 stars since I was able to train him but not without a lot of hiccups. I hope they solve this problem. This product would have been great if not for these problems.
Pros:Amazing results
Cons:Signal disruption
Short life

Summary:I was initially happy with this product. Our first few days of training went without a hitch. However, as the days passed, I noticed that there are some disruptions in the signal at the higher end of the range (only a bit higher than half the declared operating range). After the first 6 months, the collar suddenly stopped working. I called customer service and they had it fixed. It worked but only for 2 more months. I finally decided to replace it and bought a new collar. The collar worked for only 8 months. I guess the collars really have a short life span. It’s such a waste of money. I wished the collars have a longer lifespan. If not for this, this product is otherwise a great product. Such a waste.
Pros:Good results
Cons:Signal disruption, Longer life
Didn’t work

Summary:We installed this product as instructed in the manual. We were very excited to try it out but we were disappointed. The system was not accurately working. At some points, it was working but at some points it wasn’t. Our dog was still able to get out of the boundary since there are some gaps in the system. We can’t figure out why this was happening since we installed it properly. We removed it and reinstalled it but it was the same thing. I’m really disappointed with this product. I was expecting a lot from it since I’ve read a lot of good reviews about it. I’m planning to call customer support to have it replaced. Or maybe we’ll just return it.
Cons:Not working
