About the PetSafe® Classic In-Ground Fence™ System

A flexible fencing system

Building a physical fence to keep your dog contained can be expensive and, in some locations, impractical. The PetSafe Classic In-Ground Fence lets you enjoy your property while keeping your dog contained.

A flexible fencing system

Building a physical fence to keep your dog contained can be expensive and, in some locations, impractical. The PetSafe Classic In-Ground Fence lets you enjoy your property while keeping your dog contained.

Just bury the included wire — laid out in whatever configuration you desire — to establish a perimeter for your pup. Attach the included wireless device to your dog's collar, and he'll get a warning tone as he approaches the boundary. If he continues, the collar will issue an adjustable level of static correction. The included flags give him a helpful visual cue as he learns where he can and can't go.

Expandable to meet your needs

The system includes one receiver collar, but you can add as many as you need — each one will respond to the wire barrier the same way. When your pet nears the boundary, the collar will give a warning tone, followed by a static correction to remind your pet to stay inside the safe zone.

There is enough wire included to cover about 1/3 of an acre, but the system can support up to five acres with additional wire (sold separately).

Part of a whole-home containment system

The collar receiver works with other PetSafe containment systems. Place a the Indoor Pet Barrier near the trash can or couch to establish additional no-go zones inside your home. A Threshold Barrier can make specific rooms off-limits.

More details on the PetSafe® Classic In-Ground Fence™ System

Product Research


Overview: The PetSafe Classic In-Ground Fence (PIG00-17440) keeps your dog safely within a boundary that you set. The system includes the USB-powered transmitter, a rechargeable receiver collar, 500' of 20-gauge boundary wire (enough to cover up to 1/3 acre), 50 boundary marking flags, and installation accessories. With additional wire and boundary flags (sold separately), the system is expandable up to 5 acres. Additional receiver collars can be used if needed for multiple pets.

System Design: The buried wire creates an invisible boundary for your dog. Your dog's receiver collar detects the radio signal traveling through the wire, and emits a tone and vibrates as it nears the boundary. If he continues to approach the boundary, the collar will deliver a safe Static Correction, which will persuade him to stay within the containment area. The type and intensity of the correction is adjustable. The Classic In-Ground Fence is effective for dogs over 5 pounds, who are at least 6 months of age.

Pawz Away Compatible: You can customize your pet's boundaries by creating additional barriers with PetSafe Pawz Away® products. These barriers can keep your dog away from flower beds, decks and stairs, trash cans, and other small areas. Pawz Away barriers are wireless, and work with the receiver collar. Compatible Pawz Away products include:

  • Indoor Pet Barrier: ZND-1000, ZND-1200
  • Outdoor Pet Barrier: RFA-378, PWF00-11923
  • Mini Pet Barrier: PWF00-14040, PWF00-13665
  • Threshold Pet Barrier: PFW00-14406, RFA-514

Installation: Burying the boundary wire is most effective way of installing the In-Ground Fence system. The wire should be buried approximately 1-3 inches deep. You can also attach the boundary wire to an existing fence. The fence transmitter should be installed in a dry, well ventilated, protected area. The boundary flags should be placed short of the boundary wire, and approximately 10' apart, to create a visual warning zone for your pet. The kit comes with a 500' spool of direct burial boundary wire, enough for approximately 1/3 acre. The included gel-filled capsules are used for waterproofing boundary wire splices. You can also use heavier gauge wire between 14 and 20 gauge, if desired. Here is the amount of wire required based on the size of the area:

Area Size Length of Wire
1/4 acre 415 feet
1/3 acre 480 feet
1/2 acre 590 feet
1 acre 835 feet
2 acres 1180 feet
5 acres 1870 feet

Power Requirements: The Classic In-Ground Fence transmitter is powered by a USB power supply with an AC adapter. It should be installed within 6 feet of an electrical outlet, and near a window or on a wall you can drill through. The boundary wire will run from the transmitter and exit the building. You should keep the transmitter at least three feet from large metal objects and appliances. The Receiver Collar is powered by a built-in rechargeable battery. The battery charges via USB in approximately 2-3 hours, and each charge can last up to 3 weeks.

Transmitter: The Transmitter features adjustable boundary distances, and an LCD screen. The boundary distance is the distance the radio signal travels from the boundary wire. The boundary width is twice the boundary distance. To increase or decrease the boundary distance, press the + or - buttons, respectively, on the front of the transmitter. The LCD shows the boundary distance as you make your adjustments. The distance is adjustable from 5 to 15 feet.

Receiver Collar: The Receiver Collar comes with two short contact points that touch the neck of your dog. Longer contact points (supplied) may be needed for dogs with long or thick fur. The waterproof collar fits dogs with neck sizes from 6 to 26 inches, and can be trimmed to fit. The receiver collar will emit a Warning Tone when your pet enters the Warning Zone. If he continues into the Correction Zone, the collar will deliver a Static Correction (if set to Level 2 or higher). The Receiver Collar's response levels include:

Static Correction Level Receiver Collar Function Temperament of Pet
1 No Static Correction; Tone only Initial Training Mode
2 Low Static Correction Timid
3 Medium Low Static Correction Timid or Average
4 Medium Static Correction Average Energy
5 Medium High Static Correction Average or High Energy
6 High Static Correction High Energy

Training: It is important to properly train your dog after installing the Classic In-Ground Fence. This should be done gradually, in short, but frequent, 10-15 minute sessions over several days, in order to achieve success. The training outline includes five phases:

Days Goals Activity and Static Correction Level
1 Boundary Awareness Using tone and vibration (Level 1) to teach the boundary of the Pet Area
2-4 Boundary Awareness, continued Introduce Static Correction (Level 2), teaching your pet to stay in the Pet Area and respect the boundary.
5-8 Distraction Phase Train your pet to stay within the Pet Area, even with distractions outside of the boundary. (Level 2 or higher)
9-14 Unleashed Supervision Give your pet free run of the Pet Area off the leash.
15-30 Pet Monitoring Your pet should be ready to run freely within the Pet Area. You should monitor your dog regularly during this phase.

i want to keep dogs, cats off my lawn. What would work for me?

At this time we are not carrying products designed to prevent animals from strolling on the lawn. This product, and the similar models we carry, is only designed to keep man's best friend within the bounds of the lawn.
