Add Another Cat (or Small Dog) to your in-ground fence. Works with the In-Ground Cat Fence, Indoor Cat Barrier and all PetSafe In-Ground Fences.
This receiver/collar is specially designed safety collar with nylon web construction with an elastic safety strip that will stretch in those instances where your cat is exploring in a tight place.
You can increase or decrease the correction to meet your cat's training needs. This collar is light and durable, and can be set strong enough for the largest and most stubborn cat.

I use this collar to keep my cat away from my bird feeders. The training is stressful because you really need to show the cat how to avoid a shock. This takes some skill. However, my cat is now happily confined to half of my backyard.
One difficulty I had was that my older cat was used to full access to the yard was very persistent in crossing the wire--she would surge over it! I ended up having to install a fence that forced her to stop and jump and the stopping caused a shock that she eventually avoided. My younger cat was not used to full access--I trained her with the collar as soon as she was interested in ranging out to the bird feeders. She was much easier to train; two attempts at crossing the line then no more.

.we bought a stubborn dog fence from petsafe just ordered 2cat collars to go with our stubborn dog collar, regular dog collar. And small dog collars. I love that they will all work on the same fence we have over 900 in our fence and collars but not even our mastiff or bull terries will leave our yard well worth the money

We enclosed 2 1/2 of our three acres with the the in-ground (and along fence) boundary wire on the first of January. Our cats are Bengals -- short haired and slight build (8 and 10#), so the collar size looked a little intimidating, but they work wonderfully well. Had to go to the second setting for these confident, curious creatures. They usually go out about 8:30 am and come in between 3-5 pm (and only if we're home). Still on the initial batteries. The cats love their freedom -- running, wrestling, chasing lizards and climbing trees. I'm not concerned about the collars getting hung up. It would have to be a really freak accident. The fit is loose enough, and with the elastic, they could easily pull their heads out. Our boy jumps up on the table to get his collar in the morning. Our girl would love to sneak out without hers, but calmly resigns herself to its inevitability. These are high energy cats. The quality of life for them and peace of mind for us that this intervention provides is priceless. Why not 5 stars? The settings on the collar are difficult to read. I wish the "on" position were more positive. We have twice had "escapes" when we thought the collars were on but they weren't. A little smaller would be nice as well (tho these don't seem to inhibit the cats at all). I will be watching for new and improved designs, but I highly recommend this system.

I followed the instructions to the letter, but found on multiple occasions that the "level" changed without my changing it on the collar. I don't have a good explanation for why, but ultimately, our cat learned to simply run when hearing the beeps. Even at the longest range, she figured a way to avoid it.

While I think the batteries don't last long enough (WHY do you have to see a green light? Just put on the red light when the batteries are going out.), The objections to the 12 hour limit are not correct.
If you keep the prongs at their first size, yes. They would cause ulcers. Simply use a dremel and cut them in half. The collar should be tight enough to allow a SMALL space between. Trust me, when the cat approaches the wire, the buzz will hit her. You'll need about one week per month for about 3 months. After that, it'll be about a year before you need re-inforcement.

I have a small puppy who started to get too adventurous in the yard. My two other dogs at home have dog shock collars, but they each weigh 60lbs+. I knew for my small dog (5lbs now, will reach about 15lbs full grown) that that option wouldn't work for him. This collar works PERFECTLY!!! It keeps him in the yard with his brother and sister, but doesn't shock him enough to really hurt! The static option is great for small dogs!

Neighbor starting baiting and trapping our cats so we bought the collars and in-ground fence. So far I don't think our cats have left our property again. The collars are working great. The battery has lasted a couple of months now. The only reason for the 4 instead of 5 is the size of the unit on the collar. It fits and it works well but I think it could be made much smaller and still remain fully functional. On/off could also be better instead of having to remove the battery. The collar says to keep on pet for no more than 12 hours which is also a big problem. We have to lock our cats in the garage at night and put the collars back on in the morning. We wired about 2.5 acres and I hate having to remove the collars and keep them locked in at night.

We've used the radio fence to keep our cats inside our screened patio and it has worked well. It's a very difficult task to contain cats so I believe our success is pretty remarkable.
Also, when I have had a issue, I have always found the company to be extremely helpful.

I purchased two of these thinking we could use them to keep our cats out of our kitchen. Despite studying the website and even speaking to someone from Radiofence prior to purchase, I did not learn until seeing the warning inside the package that it is not recommended to leave the collar on for more than 12 hours per day. It's easy to see why, once you see the two prongs that would poke into your pets neck and probably cause an ulcer if left in place for any length of time. Unless you only care about containing your pets for half the day AND don't mind putting a collar on and off twice a day, the product is useless. I also suspect that most pet owners would think twice about inflicting such collars on their pets after seeing the prongs, which are not pictured in any of the promotional material. Petsafe should go back to the drawing board...

Unfortunally my cat ran thru a few times. We did the training and even used the highest level. We were worried it would get caught on a tree and hang himself so, we do not try and use it anymore. It was too good to be true. It did work with our excisting inground fence we put in for our dog.
