The PetSafe YardMax PIG00-11115 is our new top choice in-ground dog fencing. Launched in September 2013, this is the first fence to earn our 5-star rating. It does all the fundamentals well, and adds a few unique features such as run-through prevention and YardMax.
The YardMax is the first fence that has all the essential features we like to see. The fence has a small rechargeable collar, collar fit testing, progressive correction, independent correction, lightning protection, and is compatible with indoor and outdoor zones.
The YardMax has one of the smallest and lightest collars on the market. Despite the small size it is rechargeable and also has one of the highest maximum correction levels.
The YardMax is the first DIY inground fence that has run-through prevention. The dog cannot run through the fence no matter how far they go.
The YardMax is the only system that allows you to get full use of your yard. Most systems project a boundary on both sides of the wire, using up yard space. The YardMax allows you to have a boundary that only starts on the outside of the wire, meaning you don’t have to sacrifice yard space.
The YardMax can only handle a 10 acre yard. Larger areas will need to use a higher capacity system.
The PetSafe YardMax brings an improved collar design. It is one of the smaller, sleeker collar designs.
The PetSafe YardMax wall transmitter makes two major advances. It is the first DIY dog fence with YardMax mode and run-thorugh prevention, both features that were previously only available on the $2,000+ Invisible Fence systems.
