I cannot say how much this has worked for us. We have 2 dogs who love to run our yard. We have them in side and can just open door and know they won't leave the yard. My dogs have a very large pen for when we are gone but we let them run when we are home. We have used for 5 years and my dogs have never left the yard through the wireless fence.
We have a big dog and a small dog. It works for both sizes.
This is not a training collar, it stays on them permanently.

PETSAFE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for sharing your experience with us, Lorrie! We're glad to hear how much you and your dogs enjoy the freedom their PetSafe Wireless Fence system provides.You may find it helpful to know it is not recommend for pets to wear their containment receiver collars for more than 8 to 12 hours each day. If you have any questions about the fit or wear of your pets' collars, please feel free to give us a call at 1-866-738-4379.

After my 7 month old lab disregarded the correction from the standard collar, I purchased the stubborn dog collar. After re training him on the boundary for a month it worked for about a week. Now he bolts through the boundary whenever he feels like it. It's like he's learned that the correction isn't permanent and he can deal with it til it quits. I've got a stay and play system with standard and stubborn dog collars for sale if anyone is interested. My dog now stays on the kennel.


Thank you for sharing your experience, Matt! We are sorry to hear that this system did not work well for your spirited lab and can understand your frustration. All of our containment systems have a time-out feature for your dog's safety. If the training guide was followed exactly, it should work well. However, there are always exceptions. We are so sorry to hear that this isn't the best fit for you and your dog. For further assistance, please give us a call at 1-800-732-2677.

Good idea....11/3/13
What a great idea, but too bad it doesn't work well. We have had the system for over a year now and are constantly plagued by problems. We just had to replace the transmitter because if just stopped working($300)!!! I've had to recalibrate the receivers constantly, and now one of the collars beeps all the time, or doesn't work at all no matter how many times I recalibrate it. Now I see that a new replacement collar/receiver is 200!!!!!

I'm going broke with this system. I hope the prices come back down otherwise it's back to the kennel.

This PetSafe product is covered by a one year limited warranty, however, we do offer replacement options after this first year. Please contact our Customer Care Center at 1-800-732-2677 so that we may provide all applicable replacement options available to you after the first year of ownership.

I just found the Stubborn Dog Stay and Play system at PetSmart, and shared the info with my whole family! We are fostering 8 dogs that are 2 years, and older, but have never been trained, in any way. They've been removed from the home they were in, and we agreed to take them in, and train them enough to be adopt-able. It's been a lot of work, not to mention expense, but we feel strongly that these sweet, intelligent animals shouldn't be punished because they were unlucky enough to be owned by drug addicts. Keeping them in our yards is our biggest concern, mainly for their safety. We thought our prayers had been answered when we found this fencing system. In the reviews it stated that additional collars were $81, and that was steep enough! Now, I'm here to order 5 more, because that's all we can afford right now, only to find that the price NOW is $200!!! A PIECE!! I guess the search continues. For these animals sakes, I hope we'll find something comparable, but w/a price tag we can struggle to afford. What a disappointment.
