Description

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 this 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 this 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!

System Includes

  • Transmitter with power adapter
  • Receiver collar with 9-Volt alkaline battery
  • Test light tool
  • Operating and training guide
  • 50 boundary training flags
  • 500 feet of 20-gauge boundary wire
  • Wire nuts
  • Gel-filled capsules

Stubborn dog petsafe fence, 3/12/14
by
Wow wow wow.... This is a brilliant product. We have a 12mth old bull Arab dog. Such a beautiful dog BUT the little bugger can Jump!. We live on an acre of land but 'Chilli' decided this wasn't enough and thought the neighbors was better. Nothing kept her in. So unfortunately we were forced to chain her up most of the time. Then I herd of this product. Chilli's life saver!! It took me 9hrs to install as I dug and buried two sides and the other two sides I cable tied . Chilli now loves her yard, ha ha..... I take the collar off at night when I chain her up for bed. Put it on in the morning. She has more freedom and I don't have to worry about her escaping and getting run over.

PETSAFE RESPONSE: Thank you for taking time to tell us your story and feedback on the Stubborn Dog In-Ground Fence. We are happy to hear about Chilli's newfound freedom and your ease of mind!

Speechless, 3/11/14

I would give this 20 stars if I could. I can not begin to express how great this product really is, and how great the people are at Petsafe. When I started my search for a better means of protecting and limiting my two highly spirited pups movements I was at my wits end. I will explain that I have two extremely smart, freedom loving, escape artists for pets. No privacy, chain link, chicken wire or any other kind of fence could hold them. I called Petsafe and the folks seem genuinely concerned for the safety of my pups and talked me thru a lot of questions I had. GREAT customer service.
To the point I installed the system got my boys matching collars and began training as the instructions and advice from customer service. We have been one month with no escapes, and today I came home to my pups and found that I had forgot to put either collar on them!!!!! They had no restrictions and they had not stepped one paw off property for nearly 13 hours!!!!! I can not thank pet smart enough and my pups will probably thank you more if they could.

PETSAFE REVIEW: We appreciate your time it took to provide feedback on our Stubborn Dog In-Ground Fence. We are happy to hear that we could assist you in finding a great solution for your two extremely smart pups!

Love the underground fence, 2/16/14
by
We have 2.5 acres between a river and a road. This fence lets our dogs keep our property secure and allows them to roam around all day. We installed the line by using an edger to cut the hole and we pushed the line into it. Made it pretty simple. We've been using this system for 7 years and still works great! I hate when I see dogs tied up or in kennels all the time, no need if you install this fence.

PETSAFE RESPONSE: We are happy to hear that the Stubborn Dog In-Ground Fence has been a great solution for you and your dogs. Please know that we appreciate the time you took to provide this feedback!

It really works!, 1/19/14
by
We live on 4 acres and have a stubborn 5 year-old lab we got from the shelter 3 years ago, so he was already an adult dog with his own view on life and freedom. He started crossing the road and people were putting him in their car and bringing him back to us, luckily. So, I decided to install the fence. I used about 4+spools of the wire totaling about 2500 feet around the property. Just getting the twisted wire from the property to the edge of the property was time-consuming and frustrating, not to mention the 10 or so splices to connect the wires. The training was slow, but I did all of these things as instructed in the manual. I called customer support a few times, and I now have a dog who stays on the property for about 6months now!!! It is awesome. He was shocked twice at a low level and refuses to try to leave again.
Also, just had an issue this month with the receiver beeping (indicating a break in the wire). What a nightmare, I thought. How will I find the break buried under all of those leaves with all of the splices?? Invest in the wire break locator. It works. We are up and running again in only a few hours...
What a great product!!

Great Fence!, 1/18/14
by
First off...I just want to say that this system works great! I had to move and where I moved to was a very, very busy road which had me very worried for my dog as we moved from a private lane in the country where there was hardly any traffic whatsoever. I installed this stubborn dog underground system (as I have a stubborn dog who can literally jump over a 4 ft. high fence without even touching it). It works beautifully! He got zapped twice during his training and now as soon as he hears the warning beep he runs back into the safe zone.

My only complaint is....the first unit I bought only lasted about 1 year and 4 months... (out of warranty). We thought we had a broken wire at first but that wasn't the case. It was the transmitter box. I had to buy another one. I personally think that the transmitter should last, at the least, a few years especially since it is inside and protected from the elements. Also, the first receiver stopped working but the other 2 receivers that were purchased separately still work fine. I am hoping this next unit will last a lot longer and live up to PetSafe's fine reputation. Hopefully the first unit was just a fluke. But, all in all, I am quite pleased that it is keeping my dog safe. Thank you PetSafe!!!

Just didn't work for our dog, 1/12/14
by
Bought this system for use on my 150 lb. Great Pyranese because this breed is a known "roamer". We wanted to keep him in our yard instead of anybody's yard within 20 acres of us. Worked the first couple of weeks and then he decided the highest level of "discipline" wasn't a problem for him. He will go across it but won't come back across it. So I find him just the other side of the boundary waiting for someone to come take his collar off so he can cross back into the yard. Very frustrating to say the least!!!!! Don't know what to do from here,

PETSAFE RESPONSE: We are sorry to hear that you are experiencing trouble with the Stubborn Dog In-Ground Fence. We can understand how frustrating this issue must be for you. Often times, revisiting a few training steps in our training guide can help your pet understand the boundaries of the system. These steps are found starting on page 21 of our Stubborn Dog manual which can be downloaded at link below.

Freedom!, 11/20/13
by
My husband and I have two very strong willed, energetic Redbone Coonhounds and purchased this fence for them and installed it this fall. I didn't hold to much hope that this fence would work for us as our dogs are bred to hunt and one they get a scent are usually gone. Installation while slightly time consuming was quite easy and well worth the results. It does take time to train the dogs on the fence and our smaller hound ran through it once or twice in the beginning but now both dogs have complete freedom and respect the boundaries of the stubborn dog fence. We have had no problems with the fence thus far. I feel like my life is no longer ruled by the dogs walking schedule and they are so happy running and playing together in our yard. With the upcoming birth of our first baby, I pretty much consider this fence invaluable and rest assured that the dogs can get exercise and still be safe and happy. I would highly recommend this fence to anyone!

Great product, 10/1/13
by
We purchased this and it is great for our dogs. We have a setter mix and she tests the boundaries!!!! It works great with her and keeps her in the yard and she does not go through the boundaries but she will sit at the edge. My old dog which is a lab mix does great on it and he has been on a leash all his life! this is the best thing ever. It does take 2 or 3 weeks to work with your dog and is really sad when they get shocked the first time but if you work with them it is great for owner and dog because they can be free in the yard and you do not have to keep them tied up.

Excellent product - Stubborn In-ground fencing, 9/30/13
by
This product was so easy to install, I did the double loop install. Wire was very durable and was easy to layout. I recommend everyone watching the video prior to installation, it made it a breeze. The instruction manual was very easy to understand and install step by step. Make sure you follow the instructions. I have a sheepdog 90 lbs and a lab 122 lbs, both are trained and safe.

Great product, but...., 9/15/13
by
I have had an older version of this model for several years and have been very much a braggart for the system. It has worked great with two exceptions. First, the plastic clip buckle on the collar releases too easily. My dogs play pretty rough with each other, and have managed to "release" each others collars while playing. I turned to our local shoe repair to mount the receivers to leather collars that have sturdy, traditional buckles.
Second, and most disturbing, two of my dogs got loose yesterday and one of them attacked the neighbors dog. Their collars were not activating on the fence, but the transmitter indicated it was in working order (both lights were on and there was no beeping). I changed batteries, again, the collars would not activate. I turned to the transmitter, unplugged it, removed the fence wires and then reconnected the fence wires and restored power. The collars now work with both the new and old batteries. What happened, and how do I keep it from happening again? The system is useless if I cannot count on it to alert me of a problem with the fence.
