MY PAW IN-GROUND WIRELESS PET CONTAINMENT SYSTEM REVIEW
If you stumbled upon this review while searching the internet high and low for an affordable invisible dog fence, that is suitable for your feisty Jack Russell daredevil, then you'll be happy to know that you need look no further than this product.
Well, that is only partly true because while the My Paw In-Ground Wireless Pet Containment is suitable for smaller dogs and is definitely a decent option for beginners, it is not without its flaws.
Read along and find out if these flaws are not a deal-breaker for you because this is definitely one of the more affordable systems on the market and might just be the best entry-level fence we covered so far.
- In-ground invisible dog fence
- 3 correctional modes
- Rechargeable and waterproof collar
- Collar strap fits neck sizes from 8 and 27 inches
- Shock intensity adequate for dog breeds weighing over 11 pounds
- 320 feet of wire included.
Right out the box, you can notice that the collar is made to withstand even the most hyperactive dogs. The receiver is not too bulky and won't cause problems even for smaller dog breeds. The strap is not the worst we've seen but it is definitely one of the downsides of the product.
The material feels stiff and we suspect it might cause some irritations over a longer period of use so make sure to not leave the collar on longer than 12 hours a day. The adjust ability is pretty okay and can fit pets with neck sizes from 8 to 27 inches so at least it gives versatility.
If you're not a fan of stockpiling batteries you will be delighted to find that this collar is rechargeable and lasts about two days with moderate use. This battery life will also depend on the mode you are using the most. In other words, if you're usually using the vibration mode you might experience a shorter battery life. Since you should be taking the collar off every night, this is a great time to leave it on the charger.
• Affordable in-ground fence
• Can optionally be used with a remote trainer
• Good for smaller dogs
• The basic version lacks features
• Collar strap material
• 320 ft of included wire is not a lot
What We Liked about It
In all honesty, the My Paw In-Ground Wireless Pet Containment System is a great way to get your feet wet in the market of invisible dog fences while not spending a substantial amount of money like you would for some of the premium brand products. It won't satisfy some of the more finicky users, but for an average dog owner, it will be a welcomed break from worrying about your favorite furry friend wondering off.
What We didn’t Like
Unfortunately, if you choose this product you might be in a situation where you need to purchase additional wire right off the bat. Owners with smaller properties shouldn't have this problem as long as they stick to one of the basic layouts. If you plan to buy additional wire we would strongly recommend getting a thicker wire of at least 14 gauge. Using a more heavy-duty wire will ensure no signal breaks occur.
Additionally, we found that the basic version lacks features compared to some of the competition out there. Now, this is not taking in regard the remote trainer, you could opt to purchase it bundled with the fence since it complements the system nicely and adds functionality.
So what's the verdict? Like we already mentioned it is basically a stripped-down version of some of the more expensive units. We understand that feature-packed products can sometimes confuse and alienate people so if you're looking for a dog fence that does the job without a lot of hassle, then My Paw In-Ground Wireless Pet Containment System could be the right choice. The price is right and it's super easy to use.
