I love this product, I just wish it would have a bigger area. We live in the country and our yard is about 5 acres. It only took 2 days for her to learn the boundries. We also took it to our camp and we didn't have to worry about her running off all weekend, as soon as she hears the beeping she comes running back to the "safe zone"

This system worked great. The dog was able to roam free in the yard without getting its leash wound up on trees or the porch. The dog was pretty freaked out the first few days, but after about two weeks she was fine. Overall I think the dog is much happier. Then after a year and a half the collar stopped working. The collar lists for around $150 and can't be found cheap.

        We bought this for our German Short Hair Pointer- she is constant movement outside in our 2 acre yard.
        She also goes to work with my husband and he can set it for smaller area to keep her around the service truck. after a couple of months even with the collar off she knows her boundaries and hesitates going past, even when we call her to.

        wish they made another smaller version for on the road, for vehicle.

                A:

                Here are the manufacturers recommendations for placement of your transmitter.

                Choose a location for your transmitter that meets the following criteria:

                2-4 feet above the floor located on the ground floor of your home.
                Dry, well ventilated, protected area where temperatures do not drop below freezing.
                At least 3 feet away from large metal objects.
                Near a standard wall outlet.
                You may also choose to place your transmitter on a non-metal table or mount the unit on a wall. We recommend that you do not mount the transmitter until you have confirmed that you are pleased with the containment area the transmitter creates for your pet. This is just in case you need to move or adjust the transmitter.

                The flags aren't needed for the system to work, they are just a reference for your pet.

                A:

                This is used outside. It covers a diameter of 180 feet. This will sit in the middle and if the pet tries to go outside of the
                circle it will emit a shock to keep them in the maintained area.

                You can use this system with multiple dogs according to the factory, you will need to purchase more receivers for each additional dog! This system is only recommended for dogs 15lbs and over though!
