Two Warnings to Keep Your Dog in the Yard
A transmitter is used to relay messages to your dog’s collar in the form of electric and sound signals. When your dog approached the yard’s perimeter, the transmitter releases a beeping sound which acts as a warning. Without further correction, your dog will automatically retreat and move into the yard. However, if your dog fails to heed the warning and reaches the perimeter, the transmitter releases static energy which effectively discourages your dog from going any further.
The Fence Can Cover Up To 10 Acres of Land
The wire is 500 feet long to cater for long yard perimeters. Still not large enough? PetSafe also sells extra wire so that you can extend the fence up to a whopping 10 acres. Additional collars are also available so that you can contain multiple dogs in your one yard.
Additionally, the underground wires are water-proof to ensure that they still function correctly when exposed to water. You should not worry that your PetSafe Stubborn Dog In-Ground Fence will stop functioning when it is rained on.
Dog Has Hearing Problems?
A dog with hearing problems may not hear the transmitter beeping during the first warning. Not a problem, the PetSafe Stubborn Dog In-Ground Fence still works for them. The system features a vibration system which, when coupled with the beeping, will be effective in warning your dog to stay away from the boundaries.
How Quickly Will Your Dog Learn to Stay in the Yard?
For many dogs, it only takes one experience of feeling the static stimulation from the transmitter to learn that walking across the fence is out-of-bounds. They learn to stay in the yard in just one day. Others will require some training. Exactly how to train your dog is all included with the PetSafe Stubborn Dog In-Ground Fence training DVD.
In general, puppies will learn how to respect the fence in a day or two. Older dogs may take a few days up to a week to stay well within the yard.

Petsafe’s in-ground fence is used by hundreds of people and has received some great feedback. One customer uses the in-ground fence for her husky and golden retriever because her real fence was getting dug under and chewed through. She found the fence easy to install with minimal wire burying and was able to start training right away. It only took one or two warnings for her adult dogs to understand the fence.
Another customer used the fence around two acres of land after a few close calls involving his two golden retrievers running onto the road and narrowly missing the cars that zoomed past. His dogs adapted to the fence very quickly. He was concerned about the mild shock they receive if they try to cross the boundary but noted this is far more desirable than ending up under the tire of a car.
