I received this product at a discounted rate for my honest & unbiased review. We have a 1-1/2 year old German Shorthaired Pointer who has a ton of energy and LOVES to run & hunt, so I had been looking for an invisible fence to keep her from running off. We have a fairly large yard, so I wanted something that would cover about 1/2 the yard for Roxy. This Friendly Pet Products Platinum Invisible Pet Fence sounded like the perfect solution.
Once I received it, I spent some time reading and learning how to use it. The system comes with a collar, transmitter, flags for training, and enough cord for about 1/3 of an acre and is expandable up to 5 acres with 4000 feet of cord.
I set up the transmitter and then got the cord out and put it down in the area I wanted to "fence" in; which is about a 1/3 of an acre. It was surprisingly easy to install. I was expecting it to be really hard when I opened the box and saw all the wire, but I was pleasantly surprised at the easy installation. It did take about a 1/2 a day to get it fully installed, but once I got it installed I set out the flags and adjusted the collar to fit Rox, and we were ready to start the training.
I am lucky to have a pretty intelligent dog who really picked up the training pretty quickly. I walked her around the perimeter a few times and she picked it up fast! The fact that she loves to hunt birds made me nervous that she would go thru the fence, but she hasn't!!
It has been a couple of weeks now and she has done so incredibly well, I am SO pleased with this invisible fence! I was VERY skeptical when I purchase it, but wow...she got it down! I definitely think it helps that she is pretty intelligent, but still think it would work well for any dog that is taught correctly to use the fence.
This is such a great safe way to protect ur pets from wandering and possibly being hurt. I am so happy to have this fence system and would highly recommend this to friends & family to protect their pets! Get yours here: Best Wireless Dog Fence
