The PetSafe In-Ground Fence: A Review

If you’re searching for an in-ground fence, we were recently sent one by PetSafe to test theirs out, and we were very impressed with the quality and ease associated with the product.

When you set up these types of products, the steps for set-up can become extremely overwhelming. The steps involved with setting up PetSafe’s in-ground fence were simple to understand and follow.

The photo below shows the ways you’re able to install the fence; I chose the perimeter loop to allow my dog access to both the front and back yard, but you can choose essentially any layout.

Step-By-Step PetSafe

Let Your Dog Roam

Petsafe’s fence provides my dog with a sense of freedom and independence. Although, he’s not a huge fan of being away from me, he does enjoy being able to be off-leash while he’s wandering.

This is particularly spectacular if you have a dog that doesn’t appreciate the leash or who enjoys running. My dog, for example, loves to play fetch and every now and then will get a burst of energy where he just feels like running. You can’t exactly do that on a leash unless you’re running after them.

As you can see, the system includes:

  • Transmitter with power adapter
  • Receiver with adjustable collar
  • Surge protector
  • Guidebooks
  • 500 ft. of wire
  • 50 training flags
  • Test light tool

And, there’s a one-year warranty in case you aren’t satisfied with the product. Personally, I plan to keep mine and add another receiver collar should I bring another dog home.

I also liked that if I do decide to make the layout larger, I can purchase more wire and flags to suit the area i’d like to cover.


The PetSafe In-Ground Fence is a great option to allow your dog to wander somewhat freely while still having the peace of mind they won’t leave the boundaries. I recommend walking the boundaries with your dog for at least the first several times or until they begin to understand where they are. They will begin to realize where they are and aren’t permitted to go over time.
