PetSafe YardMax Overview

Summary: A Top Performing Dog Fence

The PetSafe in Ground Radio Fence PIG00-14673 is a favorite when it comes to expandability, flexibility and ease in use, this fence has earned our 4 1/2-paw rating. It does all that it promises and gives dog and cat owners significant options by adding features such as anti-linger function and unlimited number of collars.

Excellent Fundamentals

The Petsafe in Ground Radio Fence addresses all key functions in a way that is seamless and user-friendly. The fence has a small rechargeable collar, progressive correction, independent correction, lightning protection, and is compatible with one indoor  zone.

Small Rechargeable Collar

The Petsafe in Ground Radio Fence features an extra light collar to add to the comfort of your dog. Despite the small size it is rechargeable taking as little as two hours to gain full charge.

Safety Shut Off

The PetSafe in Ground Radio Fence will turn off after 15 seconds to protect your dog from unnecessary correction

25 Acre Capacity

The PetSafe in Ground Radio Fence can easily handle a 25 acre yard. Larger areas will need to use a higher capacity system such as the SportDog SDF-100A

Small Rechargeable Collar

The PetSafe In Ground Rechargeable is ultralight, a particularly important feature for dogs with a tendency to dislike weight on their neck

Sleek and Lightweight Collar

The Petsafe In Ground Collar is incredibly sleek. Even when combined with the strap your dog will barely feel the difference between their regular collar and their correction collar.

We would be comfortable using this system on dogs as small as 5lbs, In fact, we have seen this fence in use for working ranches with barn cats with great success. The collar has a tone-only setting that alerts your dog before it reaches the set boundaries.

The receiver is waterproof.

Rechargeable Lithium Ion Battery

The PetSafe In Ground Collar is rechargeable. The collar recharges with a recharging cord which is included. You charge the collar by plugging in the charger to the charging port on the collar. A rubberized cover protects the charging port on the collar.

The collar uses the newer lithium ion batteries. A battery charge lasts around a month under typical conditions, and recharging the battery takes around 2 hours. However, we suggest you charge the collar with more frequency to always ensure full charge

While the recharging cord on this system works well, we do prefer the docking station used on past PetSafe systems. The cord is a little messier to store than the docking station which can just be left plugged into a convenient outlet.

Long and Short Contact Points

The PetSafe In Ground Collar includes both short and long contact points. These are switched out using the contact point tool which is included. The long contact points are designed for dogs with thick or long fur.

Zones

The PetSafe Rechargeable works with one indoor zone. The PetSafe Indoor Radio Fence PIRF – 100. Zones are used to create boundaries in places where your dog should not have access. These may be things like the trashcan, baby’s nursery or dining room

Four Progressive Correction Levels

The correction levels are set on the collar. The collar has a tone only mode and 4 correction levels which you can cycle through. You set the correction level using the on/off button located between the contact points.

Many dogs only require minimal correction during training. Stubborn breeds may demand the use of the highest setting.

Independent Correction

PetSafe has come to the rescue. The PetSafe In Ground Rechargeable fence offers independent correction levels for each collar. In other words, you can set the correction levels separately for each collar to customize the experience for each of your dogs. From your chihuahua to your Mastiff, everyone will have a customized setting.

Nylon Collar Straps

The collar comes with the versatile and reliable nylon cloth collar strap with quick release buckle. We prefer the cloth strap to the plastic or rubber collar straps on other systems because they grip better, are less likely to come undone, and are more comfortable on the dog. The PetSafe Rechargeable collar strap is weaved around the outside of the collar and fits neck sizes 6” to 26” inches.

Transmitter

The PetSafe In Ground wall transmitter features enough power to support up to 25 acres of wire.

Run Through Protection

This system has made it harder for dogs to “run-through” the correction zone by adding progressive correction feature that kicks in if the dog tries to run through the correction zone at high speed. In the unlikely event your dog freezes in the correction zone the system will turn off within 15 seconds.

 

Includes Lighting Protection Module

The PetSafe In Ground includes a lightning surge protector. This handheld device is simply a fuse-based electrical surge interrupter. A dog fence is vulnerable to two sources of electrical surges: 1) through the power outlet and 2) through lightning striking in proximity to the boundary wire. The lightning protector covers both and is a valuable addition in areas that have a lot of lightning activity.

25 Acre Capacity

The transmitter is able to operate for up to 25 acres (with additional wire) making it ideal for small farms with working dogs

Dog Fence Wire Gauges

Boundary Wire

20 Gauge Direct Burial Wire

Like all of PetSafe’s fences, the standard 500 feet of 20 gauge wire is included with your fence. It also includes 50 boundary flags to mark you boundary. This covers around 1/3rd of an acre. Additional boundary wire is available to cover up to 25 acres.

While the included 20 gauge wire works and is the most economical option, it is relatively weak. Where budget permits, we recommend upgrading the wire to 16 gauge to help prevent wire breaks. Finding wire breaks is not fun!

Professional Gauge Wire Available

Roots, ice, and everyday wear can cause wire breaks. Wire breaks will shut your system down and create lots of work for you. We recommend upgrading wire to at least 16 gauge wire. The professional grade wire 16 gauge, and 14 gauge is built to withstand these break risks.

For small installations, using the thicker wire is a no-brainer. For a small cost, you massively reduce the chance of a wire break. For very large installations, the thicker wire is still useful, but the extra cost becomes significant.

Contact Point Wrench

The contact point wrench is a handy tool included that makes swapping out the short and long contact points simple.

Standard 500 Feet of 20 Gauge Wire

The PetSafe In-Ground Rechargeable basic kit includes 500 feet of standard 20 gauge wire, 2 wire splices, and 50 marking flags. This is sufficient to cover 1/3 of an acre. Extra wire, wire splices, and marking flags can be purchased in our store. The 20 gauge wire kits cost $30 and include an extra 500 feet of wire, 2 splices, and 50 marking flags.

Area (acres) Wire Required (feet)
1/3 500
1/2 1,000
1 1,000
2 1,500
3 2,000
4 2,000
5 2,000
10 3,000

Tester Tool

The system includes a test light tool. This handy tool is used when setting up and testing the boundary signal of your fence. When the test light is properly positioned over the contact points and the collar enters the boundary zone, the activating collar will cause the tiny bulb to flash.

Indoor Zone

 

The PetSafe In Ground Rechargeable is compatible with 1 zone. The battery powered zone is designed to exclude your dogs from specified locations inside your home. Being that it is small and inconspicuous you can set it under the couch, behind the trashcans or at the foot of your stairs.
