Guide to Petsafe Dog Fences
The PetSafe Wireless Fence is the best dog fence available. The system provides a safe and simple way to contain your pet in your yard. The transmitter can be plugged into any outlet inside of your home, and once turned on, will send out an invisible signal that “listens” for the collar worn by your pet. When they’re wearing their collar, they are free to run around in the yard without fear of being restrained by a physical fence!
Why Petsafe Dog Fence is needed?
The PetSafe Wireless Fence provides the safest, simplest form of pet containment ever. Plug in the transmitter somewhere inconspicuously in your home. The collar worn by your dog is lightweight and “listens” for a signal coming from this invisible fence when you’re away or inside of your house. Once it hears that signal, an electric pulse will be sent to correct them if they try to cross into areas where they are not supposed to go (the street, other people’s yards).
A transmitter, usually placed in your basement or home office, is used to send radio signals along the boundary. A lightweight receiver collar worn by your dog picks up these radio frequencies and responds with harmless corrective stimulation if they try to cross into forbidden areas of your yard.
How does a PetSafe fence work?
Many people think an invisible fence only keeps the dog in your yard. This is not true! Invisible fences can keep dogs out of certain areas, such as flowerbeds and pools. The PetSafe Wireless Fence provides a safe and simple way to contain your pet in your yard while giving them the freedom to run around (with restrictions). The system uses radio signals that “listen” for the collar worn by your dog when they’re outside of its boundaries.
