What customers say about "Key Specs"
PetSafe IF-100 Wireless Fence Extra Transmitter
  • My dogs can jump over anything and dig under anything. These collars are perfect as a beeping sound occurs before the actual shock which is all it takes for my dogs to stay in area.
  • It does work on hills and ravines. Works with two dogs without a problem.
  • This is the best investment for some one with an open yard. The dog learned quickly! and we are all happy
  • I purchased 2 transmitters and 2 collars for my Cairn Terriers. I have one transmitter on one end of the house and one on the other end. This gives my pets almost 1/2 acre that they can play in.
  • I have had a wireless system for just such emergencies, but my system is about 15 years old, and the transmitter was acting erratically. I purchased just the transmitter now, and it is working fine. Jake is safe and sound in my yard again!
PetSafe PIF-300 Wireless Pet Containment System
  • It works; my dog only breached the boundary once, for a deer carcass (hard to resist!).
  • It is easy to set up. Has the range it says it has.
  • This works great, and has a larger than expected range. We have it set on 2 of 10, and the dog has plenty of room to roam.
  • Very uneven coverage -- may only work when no trees, bushes, rocks etc are present.
  • Big collar for small dogs (I have the shock on a low setting, but the collar and shock unit itself looks big on my 10lb dog)
  • Batteries last very little and range changes by itself at times.

What customers say about "Features"
PetSafe IF-100 Wireless Fence Extra Transmitter
  • The second day of wearing the collar after two weeks training, my dog chewed through the collar! I bought a collar at walmart to replace it, had to drill holes for special transmitter.
  • Worked with no issues with existing collars. Only thing that concerned me was the generic boxing and lack of instructions.
  • Good product and came in on time. works perfect with the fence and collars we had for the older one. Perfect to have as a replacement.
  • I saw that I could buy this used wireless fence for not much more than the collar, so I decided to try it. It worked out great.
  • I was surprised how simple this was to add into our system. Great product. Petsafe has their products working seamlessly.
PetSafe PIF-300 Wireless Pet Containment System
  • Works like a charm. With minimal training, our dog very quickly learned his boundaries. The first battery in the collar lasted about 3 months until the low battery LED started to blink (a nice feature).
  • We have loved the ability to take this to two different homes since it was purchased. The system's perimeter is variable, so you can make it smaller or larger, whatever suites your space. This is an excellent feature.
  • This is a wonderful product and I would recommended it to everyone looking for a wireless fence. Another great feature is that you can adjust the fence range to fit your yard.
  • May not "correct" your dog when she has a lot of fur or a "thick neck with folds. -- may need to buy optional longer contact pins.
  • Large delay in shocks stopping once collar is returned to pet area.
