PetSafe PIF-300 Wireless Pet Containment System Review

The PetSafe PIF-300 pet containment system comes with two pairs of contact probes: long and short. The longer ones would be suitable for dogs with thicker furs.

Shaped like a barrel and with looks like a vacuum machine, the PetSafe PIF-300 is a very popular invisible dog fence system.

The manufacturer has termed this system as a revolutionary concept that provides the safest, simplest form of pet containment ever.

Setting Up a PetSafe Wireless Dog Fence

PetSafe PIF-300 covers a circular boundary

The first thing you have to know is that the PetSafe PIF-300 wireless dog fence only covers a circular boundary so you will have to think properly about whether this coverage pattern suits your yard.

It is otherwise simple enough to install.  All you have to do is to plug in the transmitter around your house and things start working.  The transmitter will emit a 17.5 kHz radio signal in a circular zone around your home.

The PetSafe PIF-300 dog receiver collar

Working along with the transmitter is a lightweight dog receiver collar that listens for the signal. The collar is waterproof for all climates, weighs 2.5 ounches and uses a 6-volt replaceable battery.  This battery cannot be charged so you will have a keep a good supply of spare batteries handy. It also features 5 adjustable correction levels + 1 tone-only level and there is a low battery indicator.

The PetSafe PIF-300 pet containment system also comes with two pairs of contact probes: long and short ones. The longer ones would be suitable for dogs with thicker furs.

The PetSafe PIF-300 Transmitter

The transmitter for the PetSafe PIF-300 is quite big as compared to it’s competitors. It’s dimensions are 9” (L) x 9.1” (W) x 8.9“ (D).

It can be installed in your garage, on the ground floor and around 4 to 5 feet from the ground. Pay attention not to have metal objects within 3 to 5 feet away as these can cause interference to the signal.

The transmitter will be able to contain your dog in a circle within a 180 feet diameter. The boundary control uses a turn-dial and this can be set from 1 to 8. A higher number on the dial will increase the boundary circle.
