Persistent pooch? Hard-headed or hard of hearing? Now you can still keep them playing safely in the yard and nowhere else. With 4 higher-intensity settings than our other collars, even dogs that are difficult to train respond well to the Stubborn Dog In-Ground Fence™ system. The safe, gentle static correction works so effectively that most dogs learn to stop in their tracks at the warning beep that precedes the correction. The vibration option is ideal for hearing-impaired dogs, or as an alternative to static correction.

More Information

Some dogs were born to test limits. But the Stubborn Dog In-Ground Fence™ system sets firm boundaries that you’ll quickly train them to understand. Here’s how it works. You’ll set the boundary by burying wires around the perimeter of your yard. Your dog wears a collar that picks up the signal from the transmitter. As your dog nears the boundary wires, a beep alerts your dog, giving them a chance to stop without any correction. For those that continue, a safe static correction reminds them to stay in the area you’ve established. Simply adjust the correction level if your dog continues to test the boundaries. After about 2 weeks of training, even the most stubborn dogs can start enjoying their new yard freedom! And for hearing-impaired or senior dogs who simply can’t detect the beep, there’s a special vibration mode. Your furry friends will certainly thank you for the extra help in keeping them safe!

Effective, 7/21/14
My dog was the worst for breaking out. We have a split rail fence and she'd go under it or would jump over. We'd chase her up and Down the street---it was so frustrating. One shock from this system was all it took. She won't try to pass even when the gate is open and the dollar is off. For bigger dogs, expect them to run through the first time. But they definitely remember the shock for the neck time. My husband felt the shock on five and it wasn't bad--just unpleasant. Just enough for the dog to not want to try it a second time. Try the collar on setting three first. Setting five was way to high for my dog.

This product is the only thing that can contain my dog in my fenced yard. , 7/19/14
After a year of attempting to train my Rhodesian Ridgeback Rescue dog to quit jumping my 8 foot block wall to chase the neighborhood cats, I gave in a bought the Stubborn Dog In Ground Electric fence. It was amazing how effective it has been! I wish I would have bought it earlier. My only regret is that it that after 7 months of not having any troubles, the transmitter has quit working. I wish I could say that the dog is trained and I no longer need it, but that is not the case. He is back to his fence jumping antics. Due to the price, I'm not sure I will be able to replace it any time soon. However, I am VERY GREATFUL for the 7 months that it did work.

PETSAFE RESPONSE: Thank you for taking time to share your experience with the PetSafe Stubborn Dog In-Ground Fence. We are happy to hear of your success in training your rescue dog, but we do apologize about the problem with your transmitter! Please know that this product is backed by a 1 year warranty, and we would be happy to offer troubleshooting and replacement assistance.

Fantastic Product, Love It!, 6/24/14
My only regret is I didn't get this underground fence sooner, I live out in the country on seven acres. I installed enough wire to cover about two acres, the rest of my land is heavily wooded. About a year ago my two German Shepherds ran off which they occasionally did, I figured living in the country it was Ok, they always come back. However this time only the male made it back, my closest neighbor who lives just down the road told my that one of the dogs had been hit by a train and was laying on the tracks. So sure enough that is what happened the only thing I can figure it was Amtrack and she misjudged the train speed. She was a young beautiful dog, just had the habit of running with the male. Plus my male German Shepherd started venturing across the woods and visiting a adult foster home, they loved his visits but they wouldn't quit feeding him, he'd come home with pizza, bread, steak bones, ham, who knows what else he was eating. Well he became about 20lbs overweight and was having health issues.

I decided to adopt a new female Black Shepherd/Lab mix from the animal shelter. And made the executive decision to purchase the underground fence and prevent my dogs from venturing out on there own ever again. Part of my backyard is fenced in with chain-link, however it is only good for that area. So I installed the underground fence not knowing for sure how my older male would accept the new boundary limits I set. I did the perimeter training and let the dogs loose with their new necklaces on, I walked the perimeter with them and was so impressed on how fast they leaned the new boundary. The collars are amazing they have a audible beep that I can even hear, the vibration is strong, and than that is followed by the static correction if needed.

The setup was simple just like described in the manual, my only suggestion is start with a lower setting on the strength dial. I started with mine on the highest setting and after installing the batteries the collars started receiving the perimeter signal from about fifty feet away in my hand. I got the audible signal, vibration and than the static correction, at first I thought the collar was defective. So I tried my second collar and it did the same thing than realized I need to turn the strength dial down. I have the perfect boundary setting for my application at just over 50%.

It is such a joy to have my dogs safe and confined to their new boundary, no matter if I'm working in my barn, mowing the grass or just enjoying the out doors my dogs can be with me and I don't have worry about them venturing off.
