PetSafe Wireless Dog Fence Review
Looking for a convenient way to keep your dog from escaping your yard?
The PIF-300 PetSafe Wireless Pet Fence will safely keep dogs over eight pounds from leaving a predefined perimeter.
Set-up, installation, and training is a breeze with the PetSafe PIF-300. As soon as the transmitter is plugged in, a radio signal is transmitted. You can easily adjust its range from 5 feet to 90 feet creating a 360 degree containment circle that extends in all directions from the base unit. Forget about burying wires and pounding in stakes. The PetSafe PIF-300 is the perfect solution for people who need portable fencing system or simply one that is hassle-free and easy to use.
Dog Training Made Simple
Training your dog to be aware of the boundaries of the fence is easy with the PetSafe Wireless Pet Containment System PIF-300. The first step is to place flags around the perimeter of area to give your pet a visual way of recognizing the fence boundary. Then, when you dog approaches the fence while wearing the color, a beep will sound letting him or her know they are getting close to the fence. If the warning beep is ignored, a light static correction is delivered through the collar. After no longer than a week of training (one or two days for many dogs), your pet will start to learn that the warning beeps mean trouble, and they'll understand to turn around when the beeps are active. Once your dog is trained to understand the warning beeps, you can change the fence radius or take it with you on vacation giving your pet the same freedom they enjoy while at home.
The included base unit transmitter measures 8.5 inches x 9 inches x 9 inches and includes an on/off switch, boundary control dial allowing you to quickly adjust the range from 5 feet to 90 feet, and a high/low switch. It comes with a waterproof collar made for ultimate comfort for the dog and a set-up and training guide.

Positive Customer Reviews
Received on a Monday. By Wednesday, our Lab was fully trained. I can't remember the last time he was shocked as he knows now to turn around when he hears the beep.
We had an inground fence at our old place and wanted something that wouldn't take us all day to install. I can report that this fence is working wondefully! Our dog was already trained for the beeps, so we had everything up and running in no time.
Looked into buying a real fence...way too expensive. I didn't want to dig up my yard for an underground fence. Purchased this one, plugged it in, and it works! Both of my dogs (mutts) learned within 2 days. Great fence!
Negative Customer Comments
We are having all kinds of problems. Seems like it only works when it wants to and the collar will beep even when the dog is inside the house. How exactly is she supposed to learn if the collar beeps whenever it wants?
Seems to work correctly on level areas of my yard, but any slope forget it -- very inconsistent.
