PetSafe’s Basic In-Ground Fence (PIG00-14582) is an easy to install pet-fencing solution that has an effective coverage of 1/3 acres but could be upgraded to 5 acres with additional wires. PetSafe’s Basic In-Ground Fence certainly comes with some limitations in terms of area it can cover, but it does provide a solid dependable system that delivers all the basics a pet fence product should. Since the average pet owner only requires an in-ground fence to prevent their pet from wandering into a neighbor’s yard or running into the street, getting a more complex and wider acreage coverage system may not be necessary.

Eventually pets do get trained to recognize boundaries making your pet fences unnecessary. Why invest in pricier pet fences when you might not need them in the future. One area to consider when buying a pet fence is the amount of area that needs to be covered. PetSafe’s Basic In-Ground Fence (PIG00-14582) only comes with a 1/3 acre coverage, but this could easily be expanded to 5 acres if needed. If you’re searching for a dependable pet fence then PetSafe’s Basic In-ground Fence is an excellent and cost-effective solution.

Hi! Just to say that I don’t understand why the receiver in the collar has those 2 inners kinda like 1” screws that faces to the dogs neck digging and struggling them? Why it cannot be designed other way like 2 WIDE bottoms that doesn’t stabs their necks instead of 2 like screws? My dogs has their necks like a scar and they don’t have it tight but I cannot loosen it off because it will not work. I think if the receiver is designed with like 2 wide bottoms of the same material as those 2 kinda like screws it will be much better. The collar will be close enough for the dogs necks and not tight and not making scars or wounds and the dogs will not be feeling like struggling all the time.... Read More
