ConsumersAdvocate.org Rating: 8.6 / 10 (Excellent)
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.
