Do you have a hyper hound who is hard to train? The PetSafe Stubborn Dog Underground Fence is quick and easy to install, reliable and safe, and a very effective solution.
The PetSafe Stubborn Dog Collar has four levels of correction plus vibration in the warning area for an added deterrent. Even dogs that resist training respond well to this system. With 4 higher-intensity settings, these harmless electrical stimulations work so effectively that most dogs will learn to stop in their tracks at the sounds of the early warning tone before any stimulation. Plus, its vibration option is ideal for hearing-impaired or senior dogs!
Some dogs were born to test limits. But the Stubborn Dog In-Ground Fence system sets firm boundaries that you’ll quickly train them to understand. Here’s how it works. You’ll set the boundary by burying wires around the perimeter of your yard. Your dog wears a collar that picks up the signal from the transmitter. As your dog nears the boundary wires, a beep alerts your dog, giving them a chance to stop without any correction. For those that continue, a safe static correction reminds them to stay in the area you’ve established. Simply adjust the correction level if your dog continues to test the boundaries. After about 2 weeks of training, even the most stubborn dogs can start enjoying their new yard freedom! And for hearing-impaired or senior dogs who simply can’t detect the beep, there’s a special vibration mode. Your furry friends will certainly thank you for the extra help in keeping them safe!

This Pet Fence Kit includes everything you need to contain one pet in a yard up to 1/3 acre. With additional wire and flags and dog fence collars, you can enclose up to 10 acres and contain an unlimited number of pets.
Factory Grade Wire
This is the wire included in all self-install kits. Regardless of gauge, this wire is of medium quality, lighter weight and keeps shipping and initial costs down. This wire will work but does not hold up to the elements as well as a professional grade wire. The vinyl wire coating is prone to cracks and over time exposes the copper leaving the wire susceptible to damage. This can cause issues that impact the functionality of your dog fence system. Since finding, digging up, and repairing wire breaks can be a tedious job at best, many people prefer to upgrade to a pro-grade wire from the start.
Heavy Duty Grade Wire
The initial cost of heavy duty grade wire is a bit more than manufacturer grade wire. However, there are many benefits to choosing heavy duty wire for your dog fence. Heavy Duty grade dog fence wire holds up better to freezing conditions, sunlight exposure, contraction and expansion of the ground, water exposure and general wear and tear. The long term savings in time and replacement if you are planning on staying in your home for at least a year or more, makes the heavier duty wire a much better investment.

Did a self installation on .8 acre lot. I have 2 large black labs that were chasing cars, squarrels, other dogs, and starting to irritate the neighborhood. After installation and very small amount of work with the dogs, they stay within the yard and don't offer to go out. So far so good and this product probably saved use from having to get rid of our dogs.
I would suggest using a little heavier guage wire, I used 14. And a surge protector should be a requirement as well.

great product, easy to install. We used the stakes instead of burying the wire. Most of it was going to be in a field, so burying it was not necessary...great option to be able to stake it.

Fence is great. Instructions are so so, not explicit for some aspects of installation.

If you are sincere about really taking a step toward liberating your fears yet allowing the dogs a free reign over a selected area, this is the ticket. I have two shelter rescue dogs which have two very different dispositions. They both love being outdoors however one had a theory of his own about staying home. Well, now they are both outdoors as they want to be,... with lots of room. The difference being I don't need to be supervising and worrying. Great product, easy to use!! Have recommended to many friends.

Our yard is already fenced in to keep wandering animals out. The stubborn dog fence keeps our dogs in. My pitt jumps over & my shepherd digs under, not anymore! We acutally wind the wire around our chainlink fence so we can tell where or if breaks occured. I love it!

We tried everything to contain one of our three 150lb dogs. Although our yard is fenced with wire on 3 boards she managed to go over, under and/or through when a distraction was strong enough. This included deer, skunks, ground hogs or a desire to swim in the neighbor's pond or chase their horses. Although we never wanted to use an electric fence, we didn't know what else to do.
It is winter so we decided to attach the wire to our fence. The only problem we had was laying out the plan and then pulling off the wire. The splices have held up well through multiple snow storms. Training was pretty easy. Our girl only needs the second correction level. Even though she has a heavy coat we did not need to order the long prongs. It took about 1 week before she decided that she wouldn't even test the waters. She still barks but remains about 10 feet from the flags. An added bonus is that it has stopped the chest bumping at the fence when an animal approaches. We are so pleased that we plan to purchase collars for the other dogs and let them join us in the front yard.

We have a 75 pound Boxer who is notorious for jumping on our fence and breaking the boards. We were constantly having to replace broken boards so that he couldn't get into the neighbor's yard. We decided on trying the Petsafe in ground fence and have been very impressed. Our dog is very hyperactive and when he gets himself worked up barking at the neighbor's dogs it is hard to get him to listen and obey commands. He also paced up and down the fence line barking at the neighbors dogs which was not only annoying, but he had worn a path in the grass so that every time he went outside, we would have to wipe the mud off his paws before letting him back in. Once the fence was installed and he experienced the correction a couple of times, he seems like a different dog! We have not had to replace a single board on our fence and the grass is growing back along the fence line again. We no longer have to have a towel by the door to wipe muddy paws and he doesn't bark at the neighbor's dogs as much anymore! One of our favorite things about the in ground fence is that we can enjoy family time in the front yard without worrying about the dog annoying the neighbors. He stays in our yard even when there are other dogs across the street. The gate to our back yard was wide open for 5 hours today (because I forgot to shut it after mowing) and my dog didn't even think about trying to leave the yard! This fence was well worth the money and time it took to install!

We have 2 large dogs.Only the Lab/Coonhound is a fance jumper. We weaved it through a chain link fence. The training was different than for a yard without a fence.Maybe I hurried it too much. He was afraid at first, but now he knows his safe area. Deer and rabbits have run (hopped) past and he still respects "the power" of the fence. However,he is frantic to get at them for a bit. We are so glad it works. Also, whenever I have phoned the company with a question, they have been great.

I bought this package for an Anatolian/Kangal that liked to visit my neighbors and their dogs. I was afraid he was going to get hurt and wanted him to protect my property, not everyone elses. I have 10 acres so I wanted him to have access run the whole property, but no fence I had put up kept himn in. He barrelled right through or over them. I hated tying him up...he actually started eating my porch from boredom. Someone in my office recommended the fence. [...] I did all the research and was sold! It was amazing at how easy to set up, install (I ran it along the fence line), and train my very stubborn dog on. [...] I am now in the process of training my cats, much to their dismay! The only issue I had was the actual collar. It broke the first day from my dog getting his paw underneath it and pulling. I moved the radio onto a regular collar with very little effort and it works great.Thank you Petsafe and Radio Fence for a product that works better than advertised!

We purchased a stubborn dog electric because we adopted a beagle that would not listen. The dog was smarter than we gave him credit for. Within 2 weeks he had learned his property limits and stayed on the property. We no longer needed the fence. The company was most agreeable about the return of the fence. We would highly recommend the company to anyonE.
