PetSafe's most advanced in-ground fence system keeps your pet in your yard with a transmitter, rechargeable collar and wire buried around the perimeter. When your pet nears the boundary, the collar will give a warning beep, followed by a static correction to remind your pet to stay within the boundaries. Your pet will be enjoying greater yard freedom in no time!
How YardMax Works:
The YardMax Fence Transmitter sends a radio signal through a buried wire that marks the boundaries you wish to set for your dog. Your dog wears a Receiver Collar that detects the signal at the boundary. The Receiver Collar has 5 levels of adjustable correction plus tone only so you can set it to match your dog's training needs.
The YardMax Has Two Modes - YardMax or Traditional
In YardMax Mode, the Receiver Collar gives a warning tone when your dog crosses the boundary wire. If your dog continues beyond the boundary, the Receiver Collar gives him a correction to persuade your dog to return to the Pet Area. Even if your dog continues beyond the correction zone, the Receiver Collar continues the correction giving your dog the perception of an endless boundary. The YardMax mode is ideal for small yards because it allows your do to use up to 30% more of the Pet Area.
In Traditional Mode, the Receiver Collar gives a warning tone when your dog approaches the boundary. If your dog continues, he will then get the static correction. While it is harmless, the correction will persuade your dog to stay in the containment area you have established for him.
The PetSafe YardMax Rechargeable Inground Fence has been proven safe, confortable and effective for dogs over 5 pounds.

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.
