More details on the PetSafe Pawz Away® Outdoor Pet Barrier Extra Transmitter

Mark G.

Product Research


Overview: The PetSafe Pawz Away Extra Outdoor Pet Barrier allows you to expand your system to multiple outdoor areas. The Pawz Away system is a training tool to teach your pet to stay away from any area you want them to avoid. The transmitter (disguised as a rock) works with a receiver collar (not included) which provides audible and static correction when you pet enters the Barrier Area. Pawz Away is designed for dogs and cats at least 6 months old and 5 pounds and up, and is for outdoor use only. This "extra" transmitter is not a stand-alone system, but simply adds an additional barrier area to an existing Pawz Away system.

Transmitter: The transmitter should be placed near the area you want to prevent your pet from gaining access to. The transmitter sends a spherical radio signal to the Barrier Area. You can create a Barrier Area of 2' to 16' in diameter in increments of 2 feet. You can test the barrier area using the supplied Test Light Tool (included in the full Pawz Away system) to avoid touching the contact points on your skin. The transmitter is disguised as a brownish-colored rock to blend in with your landscaping. It measures roughly 7-1/2" in diameter and 4-3/8" in height.

Power Requirements: The Pawz Away transmitter requires four "D" alkaline batteries (not included). Under normal conditions, the batteries will operate the transmitter for up to one year.

Wire Option: You can expand and customize the size and shape of your outdoor barrier by adding an external wire attached to the transmitter. The signal will transmit through the wire, instead of the barrier transmitter, at a range of up to 12 feet from the outside of the wire. You can add up to 150 feet of direct burial-rated Boundary Wire. The wire attaches to two screws on the bottom of the transmitter. A 2-way switch inside the battery compartment of the transmitter lets you select the internal or external antenna.
