We are so glad that this dog likes camping but we have chosen not to let Isabella roam free. We needed a fence at home and decided to purchase a Petsafe Wireless Containment Fence so we could use it at the campground also. At the time we had two dogs. One was a biter and Isabella will steal food. Sneaky dog. The fence has worked out well for us because we never had to worry about our dog getting injured, lost, or into mischief.
Thank you for sharing your experience, Kristi, we are terribly sorry to hear that you have had a bad experience with the PetSafe Wireless Containment System, and we're sorry that when you called you did not get the help that you needed, this is not the experience that we want you to have! Please know that keeping the transmitter away from large metal objects is important as this can interfere with the signal and potentially damage the transmitter over time. Additionally, like most electronic devices that plug into a wall outlet, these units are subject to power surges. If you have concerns for power surges in your area, an uninterruptible power supply can make a huge difference. Additionally, these systems carry a 1 year warranty and we would be happy to provide troubleshooting and warranty assistance in order to make this work out for you! We will be contacting you privately.
The PetSafe Wireless Containment System PIF-300 requires no buried wires like conventional containment systems, making it ideal for persons who travel or relocate frequently. Petsafe Wireless Fences use a centrally-located transmitter which is installed indoors to send a circular radio signal through the walls of the house and outside into the lawn. Installation time from box to a fully-functioning system is typically less than 30 minutes! The radius of the circular containment area is adjustable from 5 feet up to a maximum of 90 feet from the transmitter. Additional Petsafe Wireless Containment System Transmitters may be purchased to create a separate containment area, or overlap two or more transmitters to create a larger containment area.
