I would be shocked (no pun intended) if you noticed an increased amount on your electricity bill. The system itself should consume very little, as all it does is transmit a very low power radio signal through the wire loop defining your containment area. The collar runs on batteries, so of course will not increase you bill at all, other than to recharge on the models where that is an option. Once again, chances are you won't notice a change.

Question

underground fences, is there a back up plan if the power goes out?

sometimes the power goes out where we live when the wind blows, i would hate to worry about my dog getting out when I am gone. What fence do you advise on getting. I have a playful boxer.

Some of the units have a form of built in protection, usually by using a few alkaline batteries, which you supply and replace as needed. You could also use a very small UPS, but perhaps that is somewhat overkill. If you choose to use a UPS, ensure it is in a dry location.

Hello,

Thank you for your interest in PetSafe products.

The receiver collar for this PetSafe In-Ground Containment System has a rubber button located under the clear cap. Use a flathead screw driver or the included test light tool to twist the clear cap off.

When you press and release the button, the LED on the receiver collar will flash. How many times it flashes correlates to the level the unit is on.

The first level is tone-only. This is used during the training process to help your pet learn the boundary. The strength of the static stimulation will gradually increase with each level. The clear cap is on the receiver collar to help prevent the button from accidently being pressed and increased too high.

Every pet is unique, so start on the lowest setting and increase the stimulation only if needed. The level needed will depend upon your pet's temperament more so than size or breed.

Our product experts are here to help should you have any other questions. We can be reached at 1-800-732-2677. Our office hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00 A.M. until 8:00 P.M. EST. We are also available on Saturdays from 9:00 A.M. until 5:00 P.M. EST.

Thank you for your interest in PetSafe® products. The PetSafe PIG00-13661 In-Ground Fence™ can cover an area of up to 10 acres with additional boundary wire. The width of the boundary signal is controlled on the transmitter unit via the boundary width control dial. The distance from the wire the signal will begin will be approximately the same no matter the length of wire.

Thank you for your interest in PetSafe® products. The boundary for a PetSafe In-Ground Fence™ is essentially one long piece of wire. The boundary wire makes a loop, both beginning and ending at the transmitter unit. Both ends of the boundary wire must be inserted into the boundary wire terminals on the transmitter. PetSafe product experts are standing by to help should you have any immediate questions or concerns. Please feel free to call PetSafe Customer Care at 1-800-732-2677. Our office hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00 A.M. to 8:00 P.M. Eastern time and Saturdays from 9:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. Eastern.
