The PetSafe In-Ground Radio Fence is a comfortable, and effective solution for hard-to-train pets over 8 pounds. The system works delivering mild static correction through two contacts points on a receiver collar your dog wears on their neck. You will need to install an underground fence by burying the the boundary wire and flags(included). Your pet is allowed to freely roam within a safe area that you establish. If your pet crosses the barrier, a correction will be sent to get your pet's attention, but will not harm them. The collar also features a tone plus vibration only mode for effective pet training.
