How the System Works

The PetSafe Wireless Pet Containment SystemTM has been proven safe, comfortable, and effective for all pets over 8

pounds. The system works by transmitting a radio signal up to 90 feet in all directions. You temporarily defi ne the Pet

Area with Boundary Flags for a visual aid in training your pet. Your pet wears a Receiver Collar with Contact Points that

touch his neck, and, once trained, is allowed to roam freely in the Pet Area. When your pet reaches the Boundary Zone,

the Receiver Collar gives a warning beep before delivering a safe Static Correction through the Contact Points to get his

attention until he returns to the Pet Area.

Key Definitions

Transmitter: Transmits the radio signal and is the center

of the Pet Area.

Pet Area: Distance from the Transmitter where your pet

can roam freely.

Boundary Zone: 2 to 3 foot wide area outside the

Pet Area where your pet’s Receiver Collar will begin to

beep and then begin to deliver a Static Correction. The

correction will start in the Boundary Zone and continue

anywhere beyond the Pet Area. Note: The Receiver Collar is

equipped with a safety time-out feature that will stop correcting

after 30 seconds if your pet remains outside the Pet Area.

Receiver Collar: Receives the radio signal from the

Transmitter.

Correction Level Button: Adjusts the level of Static

Correction your pet receives outside the Pet Area.

Receiver Indicator Light: Indicates the level of

correction at which the Receiver Collar is set. This light

also serves as a low battery indicator.

Contact Points: Deliver the safe Static Correction when

your pet moves into the Boundary Zone.

Power Jack: Where the Power Adapter plugs into the

Transmitter. The Transmitter is powered by a standard

120-volt outlet.

Boundary Switch: Adjust according to the size of the Pet

Area desired.

Power Light: Indicates when the Transmitter is on.

Boundary Control Dial: Adjusts the distance from the

Transmitter to the Boundary Zone. Note: Adjusting the dial

does not change the level of Static Correction on the Receiver

Collar.

Set Up the Transmitter

Important: You may need to move the Transmitter several times before determining the final location.

The Transmitter is located at the exact center of the Pet Area. Place the Transmitter:

• 2 to 4 feet above the floor.

• In a dry, well ventilated, protected area.

• In an area where temperatures do not fall below freezing (e.g., garage, basement, shed, closet).

• On a non-metal table or mount on a wall (1A). A mounting template is included on the back of this guide.

• At least 3 feet from large metal objects, as these items may reduce the size and shape of your Pet Area (1B).

To maximize your Pet Area, make

sure the Boundary Switch is on

“High” and the Boundary Control

Dial is set to “8” (1C). Plug Power

Adapter into Power Jack and standard

120-volt outlet. Turn the Transmitter

on.

Prepare the Receiver Collar

Your Receiver Collar comes with short Contact Points installed. Use the long Contact Points for pets with long

or thick hair. Tighten the Contact Points with pliers one-half turn beyond finger tight (2A). Check the tightness

weekly.

To Insert and Remove the Battery

Note: Do not install the battery while the Receiver Collar is on your pet.

This Receiver Collar utilizes a replaceable PetSafe® battery (RFA-67). This unique battery is designed to make battery

replacement easier and increase water protection.

To insert the battery, align the symbols on the battery (arrow) and Receiver Collar (triangle) (2B). Use a large coin

to turn the battery clockwise until the arrow lines up with the lock symbol on the housing (2C) .

To remove the battery, turn the battery counter-clockwise using a large coin (2D, 2E). DO NOT attempt to cut

into or pry open the battery. Be sure to discard the used battery properly.

A replacement PetSafe® battery (RFA-67) can be found at many retailers. Contact the Customer Care Center at

1-800-732-2677 or visit our web site at www.petsafe.net to locate a retailer near you.

To Set the Static Correction Level

Note: Your receiver collar has been factory-set to Beep Only.

Read all steps before attempting to set the

Static Correction Level.

1. Remove the clear plastic cover with a coin

to expose the Correction Level Button (2F).

2. With the battery installed, press the

Correction Level Button and release when

the Receiver LED Indicator Light lights up

(2G).

3. The Receiver LED Indicator Light will

emit a series of fl ashes representing the

Static Correction Level.

4. Increase the Static Correction Level by

pressing and releasing the Correction Level

Button within 5 seconds of the previous

series of fl ashes.

5. After setting the Static Correction Level,

replace the cover to protect the Correction Level Button.

The Static Correction levels increase in strength from 1 to 6. Pushing the Correction Level Button while the

Receiver Collar is on level 6 will cause the Receiver Collar to revert to level 1. Refer to the Function and Response

Table to choose the Static Correction level that best fi ts your pet.

The Receiver LED Indicator Light acts as a low battery indicator, flashing every 4 to 5 seconds when replacement

is required.

Adjust the Pet Area to Desired Size

Make sure the entire Pet Area lies within your property boundaries (3A). Always start

determining the Boundary Zone at the shortest distance from Transmitter. Place the

Boundary Switch on “Low” if the Boundary Zone will be less than 45 feet from the

Transmitter.

Two-Person Method

Hold the Receiver Collar at your pet’s neck height (3B) with logo side facing away from

the Transmitter (3C). Walk to the edge of the desired Pet Area. Facing away from the

Transmitter, hold the Receiver Collar at the edge of the desired Pet Area (3D).

Starting with the Boundary Control Dial set to “8”, have a second person turn the dial

down SLOWLY. When the Receiver Collar starts to beep, tell the person to stop turning

the Boundary Control Dial. Record your settings below for future reference.

One-Person Method

Measure the shortest distance from

the desired Boundary Zone to the

Transmitter. Find the distance on

the Transmitter Range Chart below

and set the Boundary Switch and

Boundary Control Dial. Take the

Receiver Collar to the Boundary Zone

with the Receiver Collar at your pet’s

neck height (3B) with logo side facing

away from the Transmitter (3C).

Determine where the Receiver Collar

begins to beep. If the Receiver Collar beeps before or after the desired Boundary Zone, return to the Transmitter

and adjust the Boundary Control Dial. Repeat this process until the Receiver Collar is beeping at the desired

location. Record your settings below for future reference.

Note: If you cannot hear the beep, refer to the “Test Light Instructions” section.



Place the Boundary Flags

The Boundary Flags are visual reminders for your pet of where

the Boundary Zone is located. The Receiver Collar will activate

within 2 to 3 feet of the Boundary Flags.

1. Hold the Receiver Collar at your pet’s neck height with logo

side facing away from the Transmitter.

2. Walk towards the Boundary Zone until the Receiver Collar

beeps (4A).

3. Place a Boundary Flag in the ground (4B).

4. Walk back into the Pet Area until the beeping stops.

5. Repeat this process around the Boundary Zone until it is

marked with Boundary Flags every 10 feet.

The Boundary Flags may be in different parts of the Boundary

Zone and may not be in a line. The Boundary Zone is 2 to 3 feet wide.

Note: If you cannot hear the beep, refer to the “Test Light Instructions” section.

Fit the Receiver Collar

Important: The proper fit and placement of your Receiver Collar is important for effective training. The Contact

Points must have direct contact with your pet’s skin on the underside of his neck.

To assure a proper fit, please follow these steps:

1. Make sure that the battery is not installed in the Receiver Collar.

2. Start with your pet standing comfortably (5A).

3. To make it easier to hear the warning beep, place the Receiver Collar on your pet with

the logo side of Receiver facing up.

4. Center the Contact Points underneath your pet’s neck, touching the skin. If your pet has a

long or thick coat, use the enclosed long Contact Points to reach

through the hair. Note: It is sometimes necessary to trim the hair

around the Contact Points to make sure that contact is consistent.

5. Check the tightness of the Receiver Collar by inserting one

finger between the end of a Contact Point and your pet’s neck.

The fit should be snug but not constricting (5B).

6. Allow your pet to wear the collar for several minutes then

recheck the fit. Check the fit again as your pet becomes more

comfortable with the Receiver Collar.

7. Trim the collar as follows (5C):

a. Mark the desired length of the Receiver Collar with a pen. Allow

for growth if your pet is young or grows a thick winter coat.

b. Remove the Receiver Collar from your pet and cut off the excess.

c. Before placing the Receiver Collar back onto your pet, seal the

edge of the cut collar by applying a flame along the frayed edge.

Important: For comfort, safety and effectiveness of product,

please ensure the following:

• During the fi rst 2 weeks of training, do not use the training

device on your pet without direct supervision.

• Check the fi t to prevent excessive pressure by being able to

insert one fi nger between the Contact Point and your pet’s skin.

• Your pet must be carefully examined daily for any signs of a rash or sore.

• If a rash or sore is observed, discontinue the use of the Receiver Collar for a few days.

• If the condition persists beyond 48 hours, see your veterinarian.

• Your pet’s neck and the Contact Points must be washed weekly with a wash cloth and mild hand soap,

then rinsed thoroughly.

A condition called Pressure Necrosis, which is a devitalization of the skin due to excessive and

prolonged contact against the Contact Points, may occur if the steps above are not followed.

To Re-Thread the Collar

The slide buckle prevents the collar from becoming loose around

your pet’s neck.

The ridges must be facing up; the collar will slip if it is not properly

threaded.

Be Patient With Your Pet

Important: Proper training of your pet is essential to the success of the PetSafe Wireless Pet

Containment System™. Read this section completely before beginning to train your pet. Remember that

the PetSafe Wireless Pet Containment System™ is not a solid barrier.

• Have fun with your pet throughout the training process. Training should be fun,

fair, firm and consistent.

• Train for 10 to 15 minutes at a time. Don’t try to do too much too quickly. Morefrequent

short sessions are better than less-frequent longer sessions.

• We suggest a minimum of 14 days of training. Depending on your pet and how he

learns, the training could take more or less time.

• If your pet shows signs of stress, slow down the training schedule, add additional days

of training, or increase the amount of play time with your pet in the Pet Area. Common stress signals include:

- Pet pulling on leash toward the house

- Ears tucked

- Tail down

- Body lowered

- Nervous / frantic movement or stiffening of pet’s body

• Your pet must be completely comfortable near the Boundary Flags at the end of every training session. Spend at

least 5 minutes of “play time” at the completion of each session within 10 feet of the Boundary Flags.

• Finish each training session on a positive note with lots of praise and play.

• Remove the Receiver Collar after each training session.

• Be sure to contain your pet by another means during the training period (e.g. pen, tie-out, leash, etc.).

• During training, if you need to take your pet out of the Pet Area, remove the Receiver Collar and either pick

your pet up or put him in the car to pass out of the Pet Area.

• Even if you think your pet is responding well to the training, complete the entire training. Reinforcement is important!

Day 1 - Boundary Flag Awareness

Perform three sessions on day 1, each training session lasting 10-15 minutes.

Goal:

To have your pet learn that the Boundary Flags and warning beep from the Receiver Collar defi ne the new Pet Area.

Setup:

• Program the Static Correction Level on the Receiver Collar depending on the size and temperament of your pet.

• Put a separate non-metallic collar on your pet’s neck ABOVE the Receiver Collar and attach a leash. Note: Be sure

the extra collar does not put pressure on the Contact Points.

• Have tiny pieces of treats that your pet will fi nd desirable available (hot dogs or lunch meat work well).

• Have your pet’s favorite play toy available.

Steps:

1. Begin by walking your pet on a leash in the Pet Area. Calmly praise and talk to your pet, occasionally giving

treats.

2. Move toward the Boundary Flags (1A). Keep your mood happy and throw treats to the ground.

3. With full control of your pet on a leash, toss a treat on the outside edge of the fl ags. As your pet enters the Boundary

Zone to receive the treat, the receiver collar will begin to beep (1B). As your pet remains in the Boundary Zone, he will

receive a mild Static Correction. Allow your pet to stay in the Boundary Zone for 2 seconds then gently help him back

into the Pet Area (1C). Immediately praise and offer your pet a treat as he enters the Pet Area, even if you have helped

with the leash. Wiggle a Boundary Flag to help your pet understand that the discomfort of the Static Correction happens

around the fl ags.

4. Repeat this process at several different Boundary Flags. Your pet should start to resist going after the treat in the

Boundary Zone. If your pet continues to enter the Boundary Zone, check the fi t of his Receiver Collar and allow

him 2-3 seconds in the zone before pulling him back to the Pet Area.

Note: Never allow your pet to eat the treat in the Boundary Zone.

Days 2 thru 4 - Continue Boundary Flag Awareness

Perform three sessions per day, each lasting 10-15 minutes.

Goal:

To train your pet to stay in the Pet Area and respect the boundary while you are outside of it.

Setup:

• Program the Static Correction Level on the Receiver Collar depending on the size and temperament of your pet.

• Put a separate non-metallic collar on your pet’s neck ABOVE the Receiver Collar and attach a leash. Note: Be sure

the extra collar does not put pressure on the Contact Points.

• Have tiny pieces of treats available (hot dogs or lunch meat work well).

• Have your pet’s favorite play toy available.

Steps:

1. Repeat steps 1-4 in Phase One

2. Drop the leash, leaving your pet in the Pet Area.

3. Walk outside the boundary and wiggle the Boundary Flags facing your pet.

4. Continue around the entire boundary doing this, tossing treats to your pet in the Pet Area and praising him.

5. If your pet does not respond to the Static Correction, increase the Static Correction Level by 1.

Days 5 thru 8 - Distraction Phase

Perform three training sessions per day, each lasting 10 to 15 minutes.

Goal:

To train your pet to stay within the Pet Area with distractions outside of the Pet Area.

Setup:

• Program the Static Correction Level on the Receiver Collar depending on the size and temperament of your pet.

• Put a separate non-metallic collar on your pet’s neck ABOVE the Receiver Collar and attach a leash. Note: Be sure

the extra collar does not put pressure on the Contact Points.

• Have tiny pieces of treats available (hot dogs or lunch meat work well).

• Have your pet’s favorite play toy available.

• Create distractions to tempt your pet to enter the Boundary Zone, such as:

- Have a family member cross from inside the Pet Area to outside of it.

- Throw a ball outside of the Pet Area.

- Have a neighbor walk their pet outside of the Pet Area.

Steps:

1. With full control of your pet on a leash, have the distraction presented.

2. If your pet does not move toward the distraction, praise and offer a treat.

3. If your pet does react to the distraction, allow him to go into the Boundary Zone.

4. Help your pet back into the Pet Area if he does not turn back after 3 seconds.

5. Treat and praise your pet anytime he comes back into the Pet Area with or without help.

6. Repeat this process with other distractions. Use other family members during this process.

7. If your pet does not respond to the Static Correction, increase the Static Correction Level by 1.

Days 9 thru 14 - Unleashed Supervision

Training sessions should start at 10-15 minutes, gradually increasing to over an hour.

Your pet is ready for this step only when he clearly avoids the entire Boundary

Zone, regardless of any distractions or temptations. During this step, do not leave

your pet unattended.

Goal:

To give your pet free run of the Pet Area off the leash.

Setup:

Adjust the Receiver Collar to the permanent setting appropriate for your pet

depending on his size and temperament.

Steps:

1. Enter the Pet Area with your pet wearing the Receiver Collar.

2. Walk around the yard and play with your pet, staying within the Pet Area at all times.

3. Preoccupy yourself with another task in the yard while watching your pet.

4. Should your pet escape, take the Receiver Collar off or turn the system off at the Fence Transmitter and lead him

back into the Pet Area.

Taking Your Pet Out of the Pet Area

Important: Remove the Receiver Collar and leave it in the Pet Area.

Once your pet learns the Boundary Zone, he will be reluctant to cross it for walks or car

rides.

Option 1: Replace the Receiver Collar with a regular collar. Put your pet in a car that is

within the Pet Area and drive him out of the Pet Area.

Option 2: Repl ace the Receiver Collar with a regular collar and leash. Walk your pet out

of the Pet Area while giving a command such as “OK” at a specific place of the Boundary

Zone (the end of your driveway, sidewalk, etc.). Always leave the Pet Area with a leash at this place and your pet

will associate leaving the Pet Area only on a leash, only at this place, and only with a person. You may initially need

to convince your pet to leave the Pet Area with a food treat and lots of praise.

Note: You may also carry your pet out of the Pet Area.

Wireless - To - Go

Your PetSafe Wireless Pet Containment SystemTM is completely portable. Follow the set-up procedures (steps 1 through 4)

wherever you wish to have containment of your pet. Reestablish the Pet Area and mark it with Boundary Flags so your pet

knows his Boundary Zone. Note: If setting up in a metal building or vehicle, the maximum size of the Pet Area may be reduced.

Be sure to remove the Receiver Collar battery before turning off the Transmitter. If you want to power the Transmitter

from a car or other DC source, use an inverter rated for 50 watts or more.

Test Light Instructions

Important: Remove Test Light before placing Receiver Collar on your pet.

1. Set Receiver Collar to Static Correction Level 6.

2. Remove the battery.

3. Loosen the Contact Points with pliers.

4. Bend the leads around the base of each Contact Point.

5. Hand tighten the Contact Points, making sure that the leads stay in contact with the bases of the

Contact Points.

6. Replace the battery.

7. The Test Light will flash in the Boundary Zone if the Receiver Collar is working properly.

8. Remove the Test Light and tighten the Contact Points with pliers one-half turn beyond finger tight.
