The PetSafe Stubborn Dog Collar is for the "Hard-Headed" Dog. Featuring four levels of stimulation plus vibration as an added deterrent. This is a true breakthrough in pet containment.
The PetSafe Stubborn Dog Collar is for the occasional hard-to-train dog and is compatible with all PetSafe, Radio Fence and Pet Guardian Brand underground dog fences. It weighs just 3 ounces and is three times more effective than our regular dog fence collars with stubborn or hard to train dogs.

We live in the mtns of PA. Bassetts are known to put their nose to the ground and head out without looking back. Before the fence our two bassetts would head into the woods as soon as we turned our back. We would call them and hunt for them, but when they catch a scent there is no turning back. It was awful. We installed the petsafe dog fence and flags, fencing a full acre of land. We use the petsafe stubborn dog collars & trained the dogs for "only" two days and they never again left the yard.

Both of my dogs (85-100 lbs) are wearing these collars and they are working well. One is set at 3 and the other 4 out of 5 settings.

Great - Uses a 9V battery

The receiver has great correction and the vibration is what our dog responds to, but the collar itself just does not hold up. With each one we've bought it frays and comes apart. Also, our dog does better with the metal buckle type collars and not the plastic clip type. And for anyone that has tried to put the receiver on another collar you know - it is NOT easy to do! Otherwise we are happy with the performance of the stubborn dog receiver and despite it's poor collar we will continue to buy since it is proven effective on our German Shepherd

This collar has worked great for our lab. She only got out once we upped the shock level and she has never been out again. We had to finally buy a replacement collar because the plastic where the screws are has worn away so much that it was about to break. We've had the first one for four years considering it was worn 24/7/364 that's a bargain. Much less work than a dog run and she has so much more room to romp. Wish we had used it from the beginning.

The PetSafe Stubborn Dog Collar has really been a very effective device for "reminding" our overly inquisitive dog that he needs to stay in his own yard. Following the training program we have not had one incident of our dog going through the electric fence....what a relief!

Prior to using the Petsafe collar, I was on a first name basis with the dog catcher. I found this system to be effective and an affordable alternative to a five foot fence. I was also able to isolate and protect our flower beds from my excavating companion.

I thought this would be tough enough for the bloodhound but that pain in the backside still gets through the fence when he feels like it. I think I have to hook him up to AC current to make him stop running out of the yard.

I live in a rural wooded area of upstate New York. I have 20+ acres of which 10 are enclosed by the underground fence. When I first moved to our house in the woods, we had no means to contain our dogs. One of our puppies, a little bitch from a champion bloodline, was hit and killed by a car when she followed my son into the street. She never saw the car that hit her. To keep this from ever happening again,I looked into the Pet-Safe system and decided that this might work for me. I installed it four years ago and not once has any of my dogs, from my chihuahua to my Great Dane have ever crossed the wire. I recommend this system to all of you that wish to have your dog a part of your family til they die of old age. Granted, it doesn't keep the wild critters out of my property but it certainly keeps my critters contained. I don't ever rate a product with five stars but I feel that this one truly deserves it.
