Barrier range not as stated, 7/21/14
My situation is that I one portion of my yard that is protected by the neighbor's wire fence. The rest of the yard is protected by a privacy fence. Our dog, a cane corso mix, recently figured out that she could jump the nieghbor's fence. Then she jumps it again at the front of their yard and is free. So we only have about 10 feet of fence to block off. My plan was to put the rock halfway in the middle of the fence and it would create a barrier big enough to cover the length of the fence. However at the highest setting I get maybe a 3 foot radius of barrier. The collar works and she is avoiding the area, but I don't figure it will take her long to realize that she can still get to the fence at the ends.

We are going to try attaching a wire to it before giving up. But really wish the product would have worked as described.

Poorly designed, 4/13/14
The strap broke within a week of out door use. I went to the store, but they don't sell the collar separately. Okay. I fixed it myself but figured it wouldn't last if I used it outside. Brought it inside to keep him out of the trash. Batteries died sooner than I thought they should have. When I replaced them, the threads stripped when I put the cover back on. Oh sure, you can buy replacement straps and battery covers, but for the price of the original product, you'd think buying replacement parts would be the exception, not the rule.
Now I'm usually a pretty laid back guy. This is the first time I've ever given a bad review. I decide to order a new collar, and for the heck of it, a new battery cover. I go to checkout my cart, and this is what finally set me off, I have to create an account. Really? I can't just buy it? So not only do they sell you inferior equipment that breaks, they're gonna make it even harder for you to buy the replacements. Wow. That's a marketing strategy that would make even Ron Johnson blush sheepishly. I say nuts to you petsafe. It's less frustrating and much easier to just clean up the kitchen garbage after work every day.

I still have flowers! , 3/14/14
I own 2 German Shepherds. 1 that's 2 years of age, and another that is 8 months. I just recently spent a lot of money landscaping the yard and I planted flowers where the puppy enjoyed digging on the regular. I just got this yesterday, and she already will NOT go near her digging spot. Yes! I will be getting another one of these rocks for when I start my vegetable garden! I'm very very very satisfied with this product and would absolutely recommend it!

The only problem I ran into was she went into the range of where she shouldn't have been, I heard the collar beeping, but she wasn't reacting. So I looked in the book that was sent with the rock/collar, and it said that the hair could be blocking the skin so the collar doesn't give the slight shock. So I trimmed the hair on her neck and problem solved. No she does not have a patch of missing hair, lol you really can't tell I even trimmed it.

Thank you PetSafe for this great product!

Saving of a Life, 2/25/14
I have a Miniature Schnauzer and 2 Giant Schnauzers! I live out in the country in the mid-west, and when we go to work the dogs are left outside (with shelter) while we are gone. I discovered that the Mini HAD a habit of going under the gate to explore. We have quite a few coyotes in the area and didn’t want anything to happen to him. So after some research we bought the Pawz Away Outdoor Pet Barrier (THE ROCK) and contrary to the informational document that came with it, it DIDN’T take 2 weeks to teach him about going under the gate, hes sooooo smart he learned everything he needed to know in one day! Some call it mean, I call it “keep him safe from coyotes that are notorious for killing other dogs especially small ones!”

Stopped them from digging holes, 7/23/13
I bought this product to use on my backyard lawn to keep the dogs from digging huge holes during the wet winter. It takes a bit of testing to find just the right spot to put the rock. I have two rocks for a lawn which is about 15 ft x 40 ft. I have had the product for 5 months. But it works! Some people may say it's mean to the dogs, but it's mean on me to spend hours and hours filling in holes and replanting the grass and I don't like being angry with my dogs.
I just bought one more rock because the dogs decided to dig on the edge of the barrier area. The batteries are expensive. I have two collars and one quit working after about 4 months and Petsafe replaced it for free. Now it quit working again and so I will call them.
