Hi there, I was worried about it being too heavy for our dog's neck too, but it hasn't been a problem at all. He's about 22 lbs, and the collar seems bulky at first, but after a day or 2 it seemed normal, and he never scratched at it. I think it only weighs a few ounces.

If there is a gap between the ranges of your units, then the dogs cannot avoid receiving a form of correction if they try to move from one area to another. When you place your units, it is easiest to hold the collars by the straps and walking the area to find the best two places to put your units. It especially helps you need to make the shape of the area you want your dogs to use more specific.

The instructions say your dog should be at least 8 lbs. I have this collar for my 8 lb Chihuahua. It works okay for him, although I do wish it was lighter. He doesnt like the weight and tries to get it off his neck by shaking his head, but its better than him getting hit by a car.

Thank you for your question. The correction level is controlled by the correction level button on the collar. To change the strength of the correction, remove the clear plastic cover over the correction level button. With the cover removed, press and release the correction level button. You will see an initial flash followed by a brief pause. The LED will then flash a 1 through 4 or 1 through 6 times depending upon the model of collar you have. The number of flashes corresponds to the current level of correction the receiver collar is set.

If you would like to change the correction level, press and release the button within 5 seconds of the LED flashing. The collar will flash 1 level above the previous level. If you have gone too far, continue to press and release the button after the flashes and the receiver collar will cycle back to the tone-only setting.

on the side of device is the setting option of I, II, or III. the I setting is lowest. then you have yellow buttons of 1,2,3,4. so the I setting with 1 yellow is weakest. III setting with 4 yellow is strongest. with my short hair hound i have found the I setting with the 3 yellow does the job.(you need to experiment all dogs different).

You are right in assuming that two units with the same range placed in the same area would not yield a greater range. If found this pdf: (http://www.petco.com/assets/pdf/petsafewireless.pdf) on the page of the original PetSafe Wireless Instant Fence kit shows that the two units still work just fine placed separately with only part of their ranges overlapping.

I dont know how it increases the area of the circle. I have the PetSafe Wireless Pet Containment System and two collars for my Chihuahua and Blue Heeler. The picture of this looks exactly like the one I have. I don't have another system hooked up with it, and it works perfectly for keeping them in the yard. I guess this could be a different system with the same looks, but I'm not sure.

Question

Can the system be used for multiple size dogs?

We have the petsafe wireless system for our 7 year old outside beagle. We recently got a small inside dog (yorkie) . We would like to use the system for our new dog as well. She only weighs about 3 lbs right now. Is there a small collar available for her and at what weight would we be able to use it for her?
