Neil's Review

The PetSafe Standard dog fence is the entry point for containment systems.  I prefer units that allow you to adjust the correction level (lower or higher) where required.  This unit only has the one preset level.  Good sturdy unit though with waterproof collar.  Best suited to dogs that have a steady temperament (not stubborn or timid) and not recommended for working dog breeds.  Capable of handling properties up to 10 acres maximum. Upgrade to the buckle up straps if your dog is overly active as a better option to the plastic clip on the red strap provided.  Also compatible with all other PetSafe fencing collars.

PetSafe Standard Dog Fence PRF-3004W

The PetSafe Standard Dog Fence is a budget friendly electric dog fence, suitable for containing small to medium dogs from 5kg with a mild temperament.  The waterproof PUL-250 Collar Receiver uses a replaceable RFA-67 battery that will last for 3-6 months with average use.  150m of boundary wire is included in the kit and additional 150m boundary kits can be added to the system to cover up to 10 acres.

The PetSafe PUL-250 receiver collar has a factory set low/medium correction strength which cannot be adjusted.  This may not be suitable for particularly timid dogs, medium to large stubborn dogs or for yards with easily escapable or no physical fencing.  Please feel free to call if you are unsure of which fence is best suited to your dog and property


(based on adult dog)

The PetSafe Standard Dog Fence suits small to medium dogs from 5kg to 20kg.  The low/medium correction strength is best suited to dogs with a mild temperament, including but not limited to:

  • West Highland Terriers
  • Poodle Cross Breeds
  • Mini Dachshund
  • Cavalier King Charles
  • Lhasa Apso
  • Mini Schnauzers
  • Scottish Terrier
  • Pug
  • Cairn Terrier



If you have a particularly timid or stubborn dog from a breed mentioned above, please consider a dog fence with a collar receiver that offers adjustable correction strengths.


The PetSafe fence transmitter is plugged into mains power in an area protected from the weather.  The coated boundary wire is run from the transmitter, around the boundary (in-ground or attached to your existing fencing), and returns back to the transmitter to complete the circuit. The dog will wear a receiver collar that picks up the radio signal carried along the boundary wire.  The receiver collar beeps to warn your dog when they enter the radio field and a safe static electric correction is delivered if the dog continues towards the boundary.

It is very important to train your dog to understand their new boundary.  Proper training ensures that your dog understands the exact boundary limit and that they must retreat from the fence line when they hear the warning tone. Learn more about training your dog here.
