The Pet Safe Wireless Fence pet containment system is a revolutionary concept that provides the safest, simplest form of pet containment ever. Plug in the transmitter somewhere inconspicuous in your home. The transmitter emits a 17.5 kHz radio signal around your home. Your pet wears a lightweight receiver collar that "listens" for the signal. While the collar is receiving the signal, your dog is free to run and play in your yard. When he approaches the boundary of the signal area, he receives a warning beep. If your dog does not return, he receives a static correction which is startling but not harmful. With a little simple training, your dog will quickly learn his boundaries. The training of your pet is a key element with the Pet Safe Wireless Fence. Follow the easy instruction and training manual that is included.

I spent a lot of time online researching this and reading reviews and training tips before purchasing but ultimately decided that we just needed to jump in and try it. Many reviews said that, after a couple of days of trying to teach them about the beeping they just gave up and let their dog figure it out. Others followed the training very closely. I would say we ended up doing a combination of both. They didn't really understand what the beeping was indicating to them until the corrective buzzer was turned on. They had to learn to link the warning beep with the fact that the buzzer would follow if they didn't turn around. I was wary of over-correcting them so I had the wimpy beagle's collar set on the lowest setting and my Aussie's collar set on a 3/5.
One night early in using it my Aussie ran after some kids that were walking by the front of the house. Blew right past the barrier without blinking. I could hear it zapping him. After chasing him down I turned around and the beagle had followed us into the street as well. That was discouraging but we doubled down on the training and (I think most importantly) I turned up their collars. My aussie is on a 4/5 and the beagle is on a 3/5. They have not had an incident since, even with tempting things going on outside their barrier zone. They just needed to learn and it took some time. But I trust this system now. They both immediately respond when they hear the warning beep. They don't chase after other dogs, cars, people walking by, or even other very tempting wildlife that we have like foxes and deer (I live in the country). It also didn't traumatize my beagle like I was worried it would.
Be prepared to watch them very closely until they have it really figured out. Be prepared for one or two failures. It doesn't mean the whole system doesn't work, it just means you might need to go back and re-train or turn up their collars.
The other concern I had was that I have a fairly significant slope to my back yard and some reviews mentioned there appeared to be a "gap" in the signal on a hill. Additionally, my house is two stories in the back with the basement flush with the back yard, and one story in the front because of the hill we live on. I was concerned that the signal wouldn't be consistent and didn't know where to place the unit for best use. I ultimately went with putting it in my basement which put it flush with the top of the back yard but actually below the level of the front yard. The signal still works in a consistent circle for me. We have had no problems with gaps.
Finally, it's now mid February and both collars have now started blinking, meaning we need to change batteries. We got 3.5 months of battery life out of it. Remember it works longer the less it has to zap your pup too. Also, I do not leave the collars on them when they're in the house, I put them on before letting them outside. They are rather bulky, especially on my beagle, who is about 28-30 pounds. It looks pretty big on his little skinny neck. I wouldn't leave it on them.
Overall I'm very satisfied with this. I don't own my home, we rent, and this allows me to pick whatever home I would like, without having to worry about a fence for the dogs. They have learned not to test it, and it gives me peace of mind to know that they can enjoy being off leash.
