Wireless Fences are great products, but up until now there have been two major drawbacks:
- The collar batteries need to be replaced a great deal
- The collars were too bulky for small dogs
PetSafe has released a great new product called the PetSafe Stay + Play Wireless Fence. This fence has both a rechargeable collar, and is a Wireless Fence for Small Dogs!
The collar is adjustable from 6″ to 23″ and is suitable for dogs 5 lbs and up. When you add the rechargeable collar, increased range to a circular 210 ft, and small overall size it is a great addition to the range.
PetSafe Stay + Play Wireless Dog Fence is suitable for small dogs, has an increased range and a rechargeable collar.
The Innotek Contain ‘N’ Train Systems are great products because they combine the features of an in-ground fence with the flexibility and control of a full 150 yard remote trainer.
So how does one remote control work with both dogs? Below is a picture of the Innotek Remote Control – this one is for an IUC-5100 Ultasmart Contain ‘N’ Train System.
Shown here is the remote control for the Innotek Ultrasmart Contain 'N' Train System
There are several buttons on the unit used to switch it on, adjust the stimulation, boost the stimulation, and to apply stimulation.
This button is used to switch the remote between dogs.
The number on this display shows “1″ and after switching, it will display “2″. This requires an additional collar for a total of two (2) dogs.

Sometimes, you’ve purchased the in-ground pet fence, and you realize that you don’t have enough wire. What to do? In this case, an extra wire and flag kit is invaluable. They are called “kits” because they have all the components you need in addition to the 500′ roll of wire.
These kits come with 500 ft of burial grade wire to extend your fence wire. Also included are 50 boundary flags that allow you to mark the boundary for dog training. The final piece are the wire splices that allow you to securely join together the additional wire with your existing wire.
Next question is … how much extra wire (how many kits) do I need? See the table below for a guide.

I have a 10 pound schnauzer and I am looking for a wireless fence ? What would you recommend and the price? PIF 300 and a PIF-275-19 collar ?
There are two models of Wireless Dog Fence on the market: 1) PetSafe PIF-300 Wireless Fence, and 2) Perimeter Technolgies PWF-100 Wi-Fi Fence. In short, the Perimeter is a more high-end, but more expensive unit, while the PetSafe is less expensive but has lighter collar.
The PIF-300 Wireless Dog Fence
Because the receiver collar is a little lighter, we recommend the PetSafe PIF-300 Permium Instant Wireless Fence. The price is currently $229.95* and this includes the Fence, Receiver Collar, and Batteries.
