Our cat originally was a stray and adopted our family. We were seriously concerned about his safety in the streets but didnt want to confine him indefinetly to the house. He wasnt pleased with being restricted at first, but he learned quickly where the boundaries were. He is a fiesty fella and tested every angle of the boundaries so we do have to maintain the collar on the highest setting. (he has broken through when he spots an occassional cat strolling through our property) He shows himself to be content and will remain inside the boundary any other time. We feel he may always require supervision while outside but we are still very happy with the results of the underground fence. The collar is not too big or heavy. He plays outside and sits with us and we can be comfortable now that he is safe. I work in the veterinary field and never thought this type of training would work on a cat but Ive read many positive reviews and figured Id give it a try. The cat and our family can now enjoy the outdoors together.

"Due to the complaints from a neighbor, our two 12 year old indoor/outdoor cats were fitted with the radio collars. The wiring and collars were easy enough to use and the cats adjusted well to their new ""boundary lines."" Overall, we are pleased with the unit and it has quieted our ""barking"" neighbor!
BUT - some modifications are needed with the
1. The mesh collars were NOT durable enough to withstand normal scratching. BOTH collars were snagged and worn through within a MONTH. We needed to purchased small leather collars and drill holes to fit the radio unit. AND these collars seem more comfortable for both cats.
2. The unit itself seems rather bulky. It could be thinner and still by just as effective.
3. Batteries wear out rather quickly and are an added expense to replace."

When the collar is on and positioned properly, it works. If the collar is not tight enough, the prongs do not contact the neck, and no shock is delivered. We have to check on our cats at least once an hour to make sure they are still in the yard. For the most part we are happy with this option for our pets. Our cats love to be outside, and we love that they are able to stay in our yard. We did have 2 dogs next door run into our yard and tree our declawed cat. We had to pry him off the tree trunk about 15 ft up. I would never leave our house with our cats outside on their own.

Pro: The wire was easily installed on our perimeter fence. It only took two attempts to go close to the fence for my cat to figure out not to try it again. He now stays in the yard.

I have a very large yard in coyote territory that is fenced with wire for a dog, but not suitible for a cat. At first I thought the collar was way too big for my adolecent kitty who is on the small size....I put it on her anyway...She doesn't mind a bit, she knows she gets to go outside. It is water proof ( I know this because she fell in the pond, nothing sadder then a wet kitty) The instructions say to leash train them on the boundries....well that was a waste of [$] on leashes....Over all I am very happy with this product...It was easy to install...and for the most part works...Kitty does escape when she is on the trail of a fast lizzard...then the poor thing can't get back in the boundry....the radio fence helps me keep an eye on her...

Product installs easily - I installed above ground on a wooden 6 ft high fence. It is difficult to train a cat! Our cat reacts well to the zap but has twice jumped through the zap zone and onto the top of the fence. I would like to see a wider effective zone so as to get the cat a little further away from the fence. Cats are finciky creatures and any thoughts of training are "pipe dreams"!

This product is everything it claims to be. I installed it above ground, then covered with bark. Took 1 1/2 days to complete. My caT was trained after her first exposure to the static. She now comes to me every morning to get her collar on before going outside. She seems very contented with her space and does not go anywhere near the boundry I have set for her. Thank you!

"First -PetSafe PetSafe Underground Cat Fence for self installation was one quarter the price of another brand for self installation in Toronto Canada.
Second - It works as long as the battery is good. I have three stubborn,smart Bengals that challenge the system every time they go out and if we forget to turn on the collar or the battery is dead they go out on the town. One boy we have had to turn his collar up to #5 so he doesn't just run through the signal. I hate to do this as that shock makes me jump and scream but it is the only way to keep him in the yard. Right as soon as he hears the warning now he retreats but he has to challenge it every time he goes out in the back yard to see if it is on this time.
Third - We had the transmitter die within a month of installing it but we were sent a replacement free of charge promptly.
Fourth - As regards installation we installed it on the perimeter of our back yard on the wooden fence near the top and looped back half way down. The wire is a little flimsy and I will probably end up replacing it with some # 12 stranded RW90. I broke it in several places while stapling it on but marrettes and dielectric grease are holding for now.
Fifth - The cats adjusted to the collars quickly and with less fuss than I thought.The batteries are expensive here and seem to last about a month even with them turned off when not in use.
Sixth - We MUST take the collars off as the cats enter the house so they don't get zapped while inside the house in certain rooms. The signal travels just fine though the brick walls."

Thank you for this product. I have hawks that have taken neighbor cats so I didn't want my kitten going out.The problem is I have two labs that are indoor/outdoor and very use to a doggy door. I bought an expensive automatic door that the dogs could open with a charm on their colllar. First the door would get stuck then the kitten figured out how to go out with them. I was going crazy tring to keep him in when I saw this product. It works great I already had a big throw rug by the doggy door so I ran the wire around under it and it works great. The dogs aren't botthered and the cat can't go out. I am finally relaxed and I no longer hate the hawks.
