The Classic In-Ground Fence™ System will give you peace of mind knowing your dog is safe and secure inside your yard. In-ground fences are a great option if you have a rectangular or uniquely-shaped yard. When you bury your boundary wire, you have the flexibility to fence in a customized area for your dog. Setting up an in-ground pet fence is a DIY project, so plan to install your new fence over a weekend. We’ve designed a rechargeable receiver collar with 8 levels of correction. Level 1 is a tone and vibration setting which is helpful for when you’re training your dog. The vibration level is also great for pets that are hard of hearing so they can enjoy safely playing outdoors too. Levels 2-8 are adjustable static correction that you can set based on your dog’s temperament. You can add as many pets to this in-ground fence system as you need. Just purchase additional Classic In-Ground Fence™ receiver collars for every furry member of your family. This In-Ground Fence™ system comes with 500 feet of boundary wire which lets you secure up to a 1/3-acre yard. If your yard is larger, you can purchase more boundary wire to fence in up to 5 acres. The In-Ground Fence™ transmitter has an LCD screen which allows you to easily see the boundary distance setting, and if there are any wire breaks. If your dog has a habit of getting into the kitchen trash can, or digging in the flower beds, the Classic In-Ground Fence™ receiver collar can help with that too. This collar is compatible with all our Pawz Away® Pet Barriers, so his collar can keep him safe in the yard when he’s playing outside and teach him off-limits areas inside. Your dog deserves a safe backyard to play in. Trust PetSafe® to keep your pet healthy, safe and happy.

How does an in-ground pet fence actually work?
An in-ground fence works by sending a radio signal through a buried boundary wire (up to 2,000 feet). Your pet wears a receiver collar that picks up the signal. When your pet nears the boundary, the receiver collar will tone and vibrate to alert your pet that he has entered the warning zone. If he continues to venture out, the receiver collar will issue a safe but startling correction, like the static you feel if you drag your feet across a carpet and then touch a door handle.
How long will it take to install an in-ground pet fence?
It can take up to 2 days to properly plan and install the Classic In-Ground Fence™ system. Pick a weekend with good weather and consider asking a friend for help.
How do I fit the Classic In-Ground Fence™ Receiver Collar?
Proper fit is essential to the effectiveness and safety of the receiver collar. If it’s too loose it won’t correct your dog, but if the collar is too tight it might irritate your dog’s skin.
How do I train my dog to learn the fenced-in area?
You’ll want to make sure you spend time consistently training your dog so he learns where his new boundary area is. We recommend this fence for dogs who are at least 6 months and older based on your dog’s cognitive development. A puppy should be able to consistently respond to basic commands such as “come” and “sit” before he is ready to start training with any kind of static correction collar.
Can I use this in-ground pet fence for my cat?
Yes, this fence can be used for cats if they weigh 5 pounds or more and if the collar comfortably fits. You can also purchase a flexible Collar Strap for Cats that fits neck sizes up to 11 1/2 in.
