Amazon Review    February 2013

Reviewer: Bonnie Lee

 

No problems with shipping or condition of product. It arrived within the stated time and the set up instructions were exactly as the seller described. I could not get my extremely social golden labrador to understand boundaries and I tried many training techniques and failed. I didn't want to put a "shock" collar on her. Finally I found this product which delivers a much milder notice that she is getting close to her boundaries. I followed the training instructions exactly and now I have a vivacious, sociable golden labrador that stays in her own yard. I chose the underground fence instead of the wire-free because I have steel siding on my home which interferes with the signal of the wirefree and we have many trees on our 2 acre lot.

Amazon Review    December 2012

Reviewer: C. Wollin

 

Our dachshunds were always running into the neighbors yards when we'd let them out, so it was either take them both on a leash each time (which was very time consuming) or risk having the neighbors aggravated while we chased them through their yards (which was also time consuming).
We followed the instructions in the booklet and set up the flags with the system turned off and walked the dogs around the perimeter on a leash, explaining that these were "bad flags". Every time we took the dogs out, the older one got better about avoiding the "bad flags". When we finally turned the system on and used no leashes, the older dachshund decided to test the boundary and got zapped. That did it for her, she decided the flags were indeed bad and has done very well staying within the boundaries. The younger one, who is usually easier to train, is still having difficulty understanding why she gets a little shock when she gets too close to the flags. She doesn't cross them, but she seems to still be curious about them, gets too close and gets a little zap. I can hardly stand it! She doesn't yelp or cry, but you can see the muscles in her neck tense up. The older dog no longer goes near the flags at all.
I would say this product works very well and was surprised at how quickly the dogs caught on. It makes it so much easier when they have to go out!

I have a small yard with a too-short fence which is the max allowed by my HOA. A determined pooch could scale it without too much difficulty. So, like another reviewer, I didn't even bother burying it, just wove it through the wooden fence slats. It works just fine although I can see the insulation on the wire is showing some sun damage now. But it still works just fine. It gives me extra peace of mind.

4 stars

 

This keeps my dog in...she ran through it once and did not know how to get back in but after the training period it works nice. I still pref a real fence because this does not keep kids or other dogs out and a determined dog can bolt through. I have nothing to compare it to but seems to be a 4 star product.

Amazon Review    October 2012

Reviewer: M. Rodriguez "Cnyper"

 

I use this product and it works perfectly. I don't use it so much for pet confinement, I actually have a real fence! However, my beagles are ALWAYS trying to dig under, rendering the wooden fence useless. I try filling the holes with bricks and/or large rocks, but that doesn't stop them, they just go to a new spot. So what I did was actually staple this wire to the wooden fence. Works like a charm! Now my dogs won't go near the fence, and it benefits me in a number of ways. Now, when I am going in/out and leave the gate open, they don't try to wander out. Also, they don't run up to the fence and bark at the neighbors dogs (labs) anymore, they just ignore them! It was always annoying, but eventually the labs learned that my beagles won't bark back, so even they stopped! All-in-all, this is a great product and you NEED to follow the instructions, be patient, and train your dog properly. I tried letting my Beagles figure it out themselves for a couple days, and they were too dumb to understand where the shocking was coming from and why. So I used the enclosed training instructions and it worked like a charm. Now they know exactly where their borders are, and they now think that the wooden fence is the source of the shock, so hopefully it translates to any yard that we may move to with a fence, because I won't be pulling this thing out and taking it with me.
