Cons

It surely is a great product to keep your pets safe, secure and inside your yard's boundary line. But apart from all the good and healthy benefits, this containment system comes with a few major flaws.

Take a look at some of the major drawbacks of this product,
  • Works well Only for medium-sized to big Dogs- As mentioned in the product description that this product is best suited for pets weighing up to 8 pounds, while in reality, the receiver collar is extremely hard to fit on cats or smaller dogs. Impracticality of this system on cats or smaller animals suggests that it is only a "dog containment system".
  • Unpredictable Boundary Markings- PetSafe Wireless Fence Pet Containment System show variable boundary markings, making it really difficult to make one particular set of boundary lines.
  • Inconsistent Correction Zones- As soon as the dog moves away from the no-go zone, the beeping voice must stop. But with this device, sometimes the collar remain in the shock mode and keep on buzzing even after the dog has moved 10 feet away from the boundary line.
  • Sharp Collar Levels- There is a sharp incline in shock levels from level 2 to level 3. As dogs show no reactions at level 2 while start howling loud at level 3. This makes it really hard to keep things at the normal pace.
