    We currently have a pet safe wireless system. We are adding a yard max for our new dog. Will the wireless collar work on the yard max so that our older dog can use it on the yard max system?

    Thank you

    Many of our collars and systems are compatible. Check your system for a list of compatible collars below.

    Note that wireless collars and transmitters aren’t compatible with in-ground systems and collars. You can’t add a wireless collar to an existing in-ground system, for example.

    RFA-553 transmitter goes to which fence?

    ADMIN – Hi Jennifer,

    The transmitter is the fence. You can select wire of whatever gauge is preferred based on your conditions. The thicker the wire (lower number) the more durable the loop.
