Create a custom-shaped fence to keep your persistent pup safe. The Stubborn Dog In-Ground Fence™ system allows you to create an in-ground fence for dogs tailored to your yard’s unique shape and size.
With this fence you’ll get 500 ft of wire so you can fence in a 1/3-acre yard. If your yard is bigger, you can purchase more wire to cover up to 25 acres.
You will also get 1 waterproof Stubborn Dog In-Ground Fence™ Receiver Collar which has a tone plus vibration mode and 4 levels of safe, static correction designed for the most determined dogs.
You can adjust the correction based on how your dog responds during training. The tone plus vibration mode makes this collar a great choice for those furry friends who have a little trouble hearing. Use this mode to teach them their new play area and keep them safe inside their yard.
You’ll want some help installing your fence, so text your friend and plan a weekend to work on this DIY project together. Once the fence is installed, you’ll be able to introduce your dog to their new play area! With a bit of daily training, your dog will learn the boundary area in as little as 2 weeks.
If you have more than 1 pet at home, purchase additional receiver collars so all of your pets can safely play in the yard together. Your pet deserves the best. Trust PetSafe® to keep your pet healthy, safe and happy.
An in-ground fence works by sending a radio signal through a buried boundary wire (up to 4,500 feet). Your pet wears a receiver collar that picks up the signal. When your pet nears the boundary, the receiver collar will tone and vibrate to alert your pet that he has entered the warning zone. If he continues to venture out, the receiver collar will issue a safe but startling correction, like the static you feel if you drag your feet across a carpet and then touch a door handle.
It can take up to 2 days to properly plan and install the Stubborn Dog In-Ground Fence™ system. Pick a weekend with good weather and consider asking a friend for help.
Proper fit is essential to the effectiveness and safety of the receiver collar. If it’s too loose, it won’t correct your dog. If the collar is too tight it might irritate your dog’s skin. Visit our support site for more information about how to fit your dog’s collar.
You’ll want to make sure you spend time consistently training your dog so he learns where his new boundary area is. We recommend this fence for dogs who are at least 6 months and older based on your dog’s cognitive development. A puppy should be able to consistently respond to basic commands such as “come” and “sit” before he is ready to start training with any kind of static correction collar.
