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.
PetSafe Free To Roam (PIF00-15001) Wireless Dog and Cat Containment Fence
  • Overall this is a very nice wireless fence system. In the past you had to dig trenches and make sure that you weren't going to cut through any of your existing wires or pipes before you could install a wireless fence.
  • This wireless fence is highly effective! It was easy to set up once I knew what I was doing and my dog no longer runs off. I don't even accompany him outside to do his business anymore.
  • This wireless fence took me 20 minutes to open the package and setup, and within 3 days my dogs were well trained and have only chased a bird past the line twice in 6 months. Worked well with additional receivers too!
  • We already have one collar to go with the wireless system. we added a new member to the family and needed another collar. I works great!
  • Being a long house, the area is smaller on the ends, and bigger on the front and rear.

What customers say about "Features"
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.
PetSafe Free To Roam (PIF00-15001) Wireless Dog and Cat Containment Fence
  • I've only been using this for a week. I will update durability of the product if it breaks. FYSA, I didn't use the flags, dogs are smart enough to associate with surrounding features.
  • Easy to set up and the collars work well. I purchased an extra collar and it automatically connected.
  • Works great, compatible with the earlier collars. Also this transmitter unit seems to take up less room and is a little more water resistant.
  • This unit has saved us. Easy to set up and train your dog - comes with the little flags to mark territory. Nice not to have to bury wires but just plug and go.
  • This product did not work at all. The collar had to be positioned just right on my dogs neck to register with the base unit.
