The system will shock for 30 seconds after they leave the safe zone and that seems like and eternity for the dog. Trust me after one good shock they wont go near the "Danger Zone".

They do get a continuous correction when they are out of the range, but it times out after about 30 seconds. As long as the correction level is set appropriately (some dogs need a stronger correction than others), then that should be enough to deter them.
My rat terriers LOVE to chase squirrels and rabbits, but they will never cross the boundary for them. Only one has broken out of the zone and received the continuous correction, which was when a neighbor's dog had wandered up into our yard, just outside of the "safe zone". My dog ran pretty far out of the zone, but came back easily within the 30 seconds. Her correction is set pretty low because she is very sensitive to it. My other dog has his set at a higher level, and has not once crossed the boundary.

They get shocked for 30 second if they don't come back. If they do, it stops. It is a good reason to come back!
