The Author, Sandie placed the Petsafe Wireless pet containment system in first place, scoring a 9.8/10! You can find the full review along with the other systems reviewed here, but if you want to just see what Sandie had to say about the Petsafe System:
If you’re looking for safety and portability you will love the PetSafe PIF-300 Wireless Fence.
With the PetSafe PIF-300 Wireless Fence a constant radio signal will be used to create what is known as a stay zone.
The stay zone can be a maximum of 180 ft in diameter and a minimum of 10 ft in diameter. This gives your dog plenty of room to roam around and have a good time.
Anytime your pet ventures outside of the designated stay zone a simple single will be sent to the dogs collar. There will first be an alert and then a correction.
This mild correction will let your pet know they are somewhere they shouldn’t be. The waterproof collar comes with 5 adjustable settings giving you the ability to customize how much reinforcement your pet receives.
There is also a tone only mode for dog owners who would prefer not to use an electric stimulation when correcting the dog.
For the safety of your dog there is an automatic safety shut off. After 30 seconds correction will automatically stop.
The system will also shut off the Collar Containment Area in the event of a power outage.
If you need to expand the stay zone you can combine the PetSafe PIF-300 with additional transmitters.
This system allows you to add an unlimited number of pets by investing in additional collars.
The PetSafe PIF-300 is a completely wireless system. There are no wires that need to be buried and no poles that need to be set up.
The instant installation feature makes set up quick and easy. Most dog owners are able to have the system up and running in 2 hours or less.
