Q: what is the difference in stubborn dog to regular fence?
A: Hi Anne,
The Stubborn Dog Fence Collar is made for larger breed dogs and has a stronger correction than the other other collars. If you have a smaller breed dog then the little dog collar would be more appropriate. If you have a larger breed dog like a lab or German Sheppard the Stubborn Dog would be the collar to go with.
Q: We have 2 large Bassett hounds that we want the stubborn deluxe kit for.... BUT is there a kit that we can buy without the wiring? We already have #12 wire buried for the perimeter for the fence.
A: Hi Craig,
We do have a Stubborn Dog Fence without the wire, please see https://www.radiofence.com/petsafe-stubborn-dog-fence-without-wire
This kit comes with one collar and additional collars are available at https://www.radiofence.com/petsafe-stubborn-dog-collar
Q: We have a 90 active lab and live in an area known for large amounts of snowfall. Our home is comprised of two city lots. Does this work in deep snow, and what gage wire do you recommend if we are burying it? I'm assuming the $199 kit is the complete system, correct?
A: Yes it will work in deep snow, but you may need to turn the signal up to eliminate any interference.
You may also want to use an stronger gauge wire than the factory grade wire to combat the severity of the elements in your area.
And yes, the $199 kit is the complete system, but it will be extra if you upgrade the gauge of your wire.
Q: In the description under features it says that the fence can cover up to 20 acres with additional wire, but then under what is included it says it can only amtdjp up to 10 acres with additional wire...which is correct?
A: Hi Becky,
There was a typo on this product description. The Stubborn Dog Fence can enclose up to 25 acres.
Q: We only need the 2 sides of our yard wired that are chain link. Back is concrete and front is 6' PVC fence. Is there instructions on how to split the wire but keep on same system?
A: Yes, there is instructions on how to do a more complex installation like this. If you need additional assistance feel free to call us and we will point you in the right direction.
Q: We live in an area that tends to flood from tropical storms, etc. Will the fence still work under a few inches and up to a foot of water? Or should we choose the wireless option?
A: The wire will work just fine under water as long as there are no breaks in the wire or the wire coating.
Q: We have an area that we would like to run an underground fence, however, it is a creek bed that is dry 95% of the year. Would it adversely affect the system if there were water in that area?
A: Hi Abby,
As long as the coating on the wire is in good condition and there is no breaks or holes in the wire this should not be a problem.
Q: We have an electronic fence system already installed and have been using petsafe collars. If we switch to this whole new system would we have to bury new lines? We need a stronger system, the dog keeps running outside.
A: Hi Joe,
No you do not need to bury new wire.
Q: Can you tell me more about your above ground installation? I plan to use your fence in addition to woven wire for a livestock protection dog. TIA
In short, if you are planning to attach the wire to an existing livestock fence, you shouldn't run into any problems.
For a more detailed explanation we would recommend you give us a call at 800-941-4200.
Q: We currently have an underground fence . That dog recently started running through The boundary, after eight months of using it . We have a pet that is somewhat stubborn . Does this particular unit give a higher jolt? What is the difference between your regular underground fence and a stubborn dog fence ?
A: Hi Lorie,
This unit can indeed be set to a higher correction level than the other PetSafe collars.
The collar itself is the primary difference in the two systems. The Stubborn dog collar takes a standard 9 volt battery while the regular fence collar takes a circular shaped 6 volt battery.
The stubborn dog collar is also equipped with a vibration mode that isn't available on the other collar.
Q: Can we get the transmitter and collar separately ? We already have the boundary established .
A: Yes, you can get them separately or you can buy a Stubborn Dog Fence without wire,
The part number for the the fence without wire is ZIG00-14658
The part number for the collar by itself is PRF-275-19
The part number for the transmitter by itself is RF-1010
You can search those part numbers in the search bar of our website to pull up the product listings.
Q: Several years ago I bought a stubborn dog fence. One of the collars has started leaking water. Do you sell replacement collars?
A: Hi Lynn,
We do have the Stubborn Dog replacement collars. The part number for the collar itself is PRF-279-19. You can search that part number in the search bar on our website and it will come up.
Q: Can I use this for 3 doodles? Have tried 2 different underground fences with no luck of keeping them in.
A: Hi Keith,
As long as you take the time to properly train the dogs on the system, this collar is more than strong enough to contain large dogs.
Q: Is the collar rated for underwater , if so, to what depth?
And, how many acres can the system cover (with additional wire)?
A: Hi Paul,
This collar is not rated for submersion. If you need a fully submersible collar I would recommend checking out the SportDog products.
