How does the PetSafe Professional UnderGround Fence work?
Professional Petsafe is a modern training system for containment that utilizes sophisticated electronics to support our Lite-Touch™ Training Method. One of our Professional transmitters usually mounted in the garage creates a signal field around an antenna wire buried in your yard, defining the safe area that you design. Your pet wears a custom-set ProLite® receiver that first warns him if he approaches his boundary, then will correct him if he makes incorrect choices.

How long does it take for the dog to learn his boundaries?
With our revolutionary Lite-Touch™ Training Method, the proper behavior can be shaped within a few short training sessions. Reward based training, along with the technology to apply gentle progressive/rising stimulation facilitate this learning curve. Most dogs understand completely in less than two weeks. We have found pets learn much faster, and can be much younger than previous containment methods.

Why Professional PetSafe® over other brands?
This really comes down to how dogs learn, and having the tools to effectively shape the behavior with safe, careful and humane methods, this really is the most important difference. Our Professional PetSafe Dealers are the ONLY certified trainers of the Lite-Touch™ Training Method, and they have the advanced electronic technology to support it, this way, the right amount of pressure is discovered, creating the desired behavior.

What size or breed of pet can the system be used on?
The pet must be trainable and able to comfortably wear the receiver. Any breed can be contained, however it is recommended that the dog be at least eight pounds and be at least three months in age.

How often must I replace the batteries in the receiver collar?
This will vary depending on how often your pet tests the boundary. In most cases the battery will last at least six months and in some cases longer. The ProLite receiver has a low battery light to insure your pet’s safety.
