What customers say about "Key Specs"
Havahart 5134G Wireless Radial Shaped Dog Fence System
  • Can work for 2 dogs (have to buy another collar - only one comes with box).
  • Has a good range. No need to bury wires in the ground.
  • It's wireless and controlled from inside. The fence radius is adjustable.
  • The wireless fence is great because it was so simple to set up and the radius can be adjusted in seconds. It took our dog 2 days and she knows to stay in the yard/ property. It's great for living out in the country with multiply acres of property!
  • Metal objects can interfere with the signal, changing the fence radius, which confused the dog a couple of times.
  • After about a year, one of the battery caps fell off while the dog was out. Had to shell out a few bucks for an extra cap and lost battery.
PetSafe Stay and Play (PIF00-12917) 2-Dog Wireless Dog Fence System
  • Think about it this way. If your yard is a rectangle the wireless boarder will not exactly match your yard, instead it will be more oval in shape
  • Customer support was responsive, polite, and helpful, but in the end it wasn't possible to create a large enough area for the dogs without a dead zone or encroaching into the neighbors' yards.
  • I assumed that the wooded areas wouldn't work so well, but it does! I'm sure it's not as good of a signal back in there, but the fact that it works at all into the woods is impressive. I
  • Love that this is portable and we can take in our trailer and reduce the area while we are camping. All in all works great!
  • The transmitter does work, but did not get the added area that is advertised.

What customers say about "Features"
Havahart 5134G Wireless Radial Shaped Dog Fence System
  • It beeps when he get 5' to the fence before shocking him, which he usually responds to.
  • Easy to instal. Adjustable shock level.
  • What a great purchase this was. Instillation was very easy. Marley was very easy to train and stays home and within his boundtry. Well worth the money.
  • Battery life/charger (should consider buying a better quality charger and batteries for regular use).
  • The LCD Display on the base unit is also intermittent, with some of the lines of pixels not coming on. Bad, but, OK I'll live with it.
  • Shortly after the battery cap fell off, one collars just quit working. We needed a collar, so I ordered a replacement for an additional $150.
PetSafe Stay and Play (PIF00-12917) 2-Dog Wireless Dog Fence System
  • Really like that the collars are rechargeable. Only issue was it only creates a CIRCLE of protection - so the "corners' are tricky to the dogs at first - if you need corners
  • The adjusting buckles on the collars don't hold letting the collar come loose, to where the contacts don't make contact.
  • Warning beep is too low for humans to hear well. Easy to set up. Just plug in/charge collar. No batteries! Walk the perimeter and flag.
  • The only downside is that one of them decided to roll in something in the yard and trying to clean the collars was pretty tough.
  • Seems to work okay, although one of the collars does not turn green after it has charged overnight.
