What experts liked
The size of the receiver collar can be adjusted depending upon the size of your dog. It is perfect for dogs weighing 5 pounds and more.
- Up Dog Fence
The adjusting buckles on the collars don't hold letting the collar come loose, to where the contacts don't make contact.
- The Goody Pet
There is flexibility in expanding the size of containment using wireless transmitters and options to add any number of pets using wireless collars.
- I Love Dogs
Fully weather and environment proof
- Woof Dog
What experts didn't like
Inconsistent Perimeter Area- It's really tricky to get the right combination of coverage at the adjusted perimeter. Sometimes, the boundary area changes and gives drop out.
- Up Dog Fence
The transmitter does work, but did not get the added area that is advertised.
- The Goody Pet
At times the collar gives the dog static signals even if it is within the boundary.
- I Love Dogs
Unreliable performance over uneven terrain
- Woof Dog

From The Manufacturer

Create a safe place for your pet to play with the Stay+Play Wireless Fence. This sleek unit emits a circular, adjustable signal around the central transmitter that communicates with your pet’s rechargeable receiver collar. To use, place your transmitter, adjust the wireless signal and use short, fun training sessions to teach your pet his or her boundaries. Should your pet attempt to cross the signal barrier, a harmless static correction is emitted to teach your pet to stay within the boundary. The Stay+Play Wireless Fence covers an area with a diameter up to 210 feet (¾ an acre), and is portable, so you can take the Stay+Play with you when your travel or if you should move. Give your pet outdoor freedom while keeping your peace of mind with the Stay+Play Wireless Pet Fence. Never connect a lead to the electronic collar; it will cause excessive pressure on the contact
