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!

OUTSTANDING !!!!!, 10/9/14
My only regret is not buying this any sooner.
I have a 2 yr old Male Border Collie that would take any opportunity to dart out the house and run around the neighborhood. We were unable to play outside with him much because he would run straight for the pond or head for the street. On Nice days we tied him up to a rope lead but I don't have much shade on my property so we could not let him stay out long.
We rented a gas edger from Home depot for $30. It was well worth it !!.
My wife went behind me burying the wire. It took most of the day we fenced off around 2 acres. I also used a 18 gauge wire since I was fencing off a pretty large area.
We followed the training instructions and it has worked great. I really think he was trained after a week but went through the paces anyway to be sure. We made special effort to show him the driveway was not a way out of the yard because he initially would walk down the driveway until his collar would beep then he would back off. The only problem we had was he chased a rabbit and ran over the fence the first week we let him roam the yard. After he crossed he just laid down and we took the collar off of him and walked him back across.. Since then he will chase off rabbits and raccoons and stop well before the fence. he definitely knows all the borders. I have mistakenly left him outside without the collar and he is content just to stay in the yard. 6 months now with ZERO problems !!!!!

cheap collars, 10/6/14
For the price of the system I would have thought the collar that comes with it would have been stronger and thicker, but instead a very cheap material. My dogs collar within a week shredded from playing with other dogs. I also disagree with the training technique. My dogs learned by sound not by sight with flags and by the third day I could no longer put their leash on and take them to flags (beeping zone) without them thinking I had something to do with it. It took my dogs about a week to figure out when they heard the beeping sound they were out of their safe zone. I am very pleased that my dogs stay within our 2 acre yard, but very displeased with collar we received with system.

PETSAFE RESPONSE: We are sorry to hear that the collar straps of the Stubborn Dog In-Ground Fence do not meet your expectations! These collars are similar to a standard nylon strap that you may use for their id tags. Please know that these receivers are designed to be removed so that you can replace straps with ease when needed. We do offer other straps that may be more suitable to your pet's needs, and we would be happy to assist. Because every pet learns differently, training times may vary, but the Stubborn Dog In-Ground Fence System suggests using the boundary flags, a warning tone, and a vibration feature for best results. For more information on training or replacement straps, please contact our Customer Care Center at 1-800-732-2677.

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.

PETSAFE RESPONSE: We are happy to hear of the success you and your husband have had in using the Stubborn Dog In-Ground Fence and we appreciate you sharing your story. Please know that we do always recommend to start the collar on the lowest static correction level setting when training and introducing your pet to the system, and we are happy to hear you found the setting that works best for your dog. If you have any questions or concerns about your system and training, please contact our Customer Care Center at 1-800-732-2677.
