PetSafe Basic In-ground Fence (PIG00-14582) review
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. That’s my suggestion to make a better pet safe dogs electric fence collar design. Hopefully you pay attention to my comment for the best for the dogs. Sincerely The Mom of 2 Boxers doggies. Thank you!
