Love the system, but disappointed with the quality., 6/14/14
I live in Canada (Quebec)
My comment will be similar to Paul's comment.

I have been using the system for over 8 years before I had to replace anything. Almost everything was perfect, except the collar.
My dog learned extremely fast, and was happy to run around and play in my huge garden, while it gave me the peace of mind, knowing that he could stay outside for hours without getting lost in the woods (he loved chasing the deer), or running after the cars on the road, especially in the night because the dog is totally black: even a careful driver could have hit him.

The red collar that came with the receiver, was of poor quality, and after a few years, I installed the receiver on another more robust collar.

The initial guaranty was 3 years.

About one year ago, it still worked, but according to the seller who I had called for another problem, was not as good as the news one: he showed me the difference and I agreed.

So I bought the new "improved" one.

This time, the guaranty was only one year, but I did not care too much, because the first one had lasted so many years without problems.

But now the new receiver is really broken: seems that a contact moves inside, so it works on and off, depending on slight movements.
My dog ran away everyday in the past 4 days.

But - well calculated - it broke just a few days after the one year guaranty expired...

Quality Out The Window but Pricing Remains High, 6/14/14
The collars are junk, why would you use stich cheap plastic snap connections that clearly aren't going to last for 5 to 10 years? Cutting back on the dollars spent on production? Clearly.

PETSAFE RESPONSE: We are sorry to hear that the collar strap does not meet your expectations! Please know that like standard dog collars, our straps can become worn over time, and we have designed the Deluxe In Ground UltraLight Receiver Collar so that you can replace the strap with ease. For your convenience, we do offer replacement straps available at the link below, or by contacting our Customer Care Center at 1-800-732-2677.


Only ever have to pay retail once, replacement assistance awesome!, 5/1/14
I've used this fence and collars for 15+ years, through 2 homes and 5 wonderful dogs. Eventually the collars do wear out or get damaged by my dogs. I just call up customer service and they help me get a replacement collar for much less than retail. My fence was struck by a direct lightning hit once as well and the replacement for it was also a simple process and affordable.

Disappointed, 4/16/14
I like your products and business. I used to install your fences professionally. I chose PetSafe for many reasons but ultimately believing your product to be the best. My disappointment began when you changed to the proprietary battery. It is inconvenient and more expensive, but more, the collars have not been nearly as good. I've purchased more new Deluxe collars in the past several years then years prior. The collars used to last more than 3 to 5 years, even 12 years. Those collars had a ten year warranty. Now I purchase a new collar every 13 months or less. These collars have one year warranty. Is the proof in the warranty? Perhaps you don't believe in these collars either. I will try the new expensive rechargeable collar, hoping this is your "flagship" collar, otherwise I'm jumping ship!

PETSAFE RESPONSE: Paul, we apologize that the design of the Deluxe In-Ground UltraLight™ Receiver does not meet your expectations! We do appreciate your feedback and concerns about our warranty.
