Amazing Product Review by Jason Amador

What an amazing product! I live Chicago, but was recently transferred to a branch of our company located in the country. I was deeply worried about the move as my wife's beloved Kaninchen Dachshund, Max, wasn't used to the country and its wide open spaces. Shortly after moving in, we became mortified, as our dog would constantly run after cars on a nearby busy stretch of road.

We attempted to keep the dog inside, only to have him constantly barking at all hours of the day. He refused to eat and seemed quite depressed at the thought of no longer being able to go outside The situation got so bad that my wife was in tears and even contemplated giving her beloved dog away.

Not wanting to tear the two apart, I vowed to find a solution to the situation. After several hours of internet research, I decided that a dog fence system was the best way to resolve the situation. I called up a professional company and they arrived and completed a consultation on my property. I was shocked to find out that my rather large backyard would cost several thousands of dollars to professional fence. There was no way I was going to spend this without getting a second opinion, so I headed to the vet who instead suggested D.I.Y. Pet Fence. I found the price to be much more acceptable and ordered it right away. After 6 hours on a Saturday afternoon I managed to have the whole system installed and up and running.

The 1000 feet I ordered was more than enough to fence my whole backyard and the heavy duty ground staples really insured that the wire was nice and secure in the soil. The dog is now free to roam are large backyard and gets all his energy out running around four to five hours during the day.

My wife especially loves indoor zones which allow her to keep Miley away from the trash cans. The PetSafe YardMax collar is also great as it's small and lightweight and perfect for our 12 pound dog, allowing him to do all the things he usually does without any discomfort. The fit feature also ensures that the collar is fitted properly and doesn't unnecessarily hurt our dog or reduced the usefulness of the fence. I can't say how much of a difference the YardMax system has made in our lives. From being cooped up inside tearing the house or to freely running outside and being his normal.

Wonderful product, we really love it.

Very happy with our new fence Review by Sarah

I am the loving owner of a Bull Terrier named Terry. Terry is a very boisterous dog and we have had problems keeping him under control. I have never felt comfortable letting him roam in the back yard as he likes to go beyond our garden, causing problems with the neighbors.

We decided to upgrade our fencing but we were priced out by the very expensive installation costs, we simply couldn't afford to spend over 1000 dollars for the fence to be installed. We discovered Flexpetz after further research online. My husband discussed our situation with a very helpful member of staff. We decided to purchase the PRO-Grade dog fence and it has proven to be an excellent decision.

The PRO-grade kit is heavy duty, the staples and wire are substantial and durable, it is clearly built to last. Installing the fence was easy and it saved us a lot of money. The correction is a sufficient deterrent for Terry and it didn't take long for him to learn to not go beyond the fence, dogs are not stupid and he didn't require much training to become accustomed to his new surroundings. The collar didn't cause him any problems either.

I finally feel comfortable letting Terry roam around, safe in the knowledge that our new fence will keep him within our boundaries. I feel assured knowing Terry is safe and our neighbors will not be pestered.

Good system | Works well several minor issues Review by Ed

I have two dogs that are too strong for my children to walk without my help and decided it was time to build a fence to make it easier to let them out. I have never wanted a fence because we share our backyard with all of our neighbors and it gives us one huge backyard to use, so putting up a fence would upset many people. Also very costly.

My friend told me to look into invisible dog fencing and I realized this would be the best solution for everyone. I couldn't believe how expensive it was going to cost for a professional installation from the first companies I looked into. I then found this site and purchased the PetSafe YardMax Pet Fence PRO-Grade, which I installed by myself and saved a huge amount of money. Now my children can let the dogs out without bothering me and they never leave the yard. It's great that we are still able to share yards with all of our neighbors and I am not looked at as the un-friendly neighbor that had to put up a fence and ruin it for everyone. I am completely satisfied with the results, the amount I paid for the fence and how easy it was to install it myself. My dogs, my children, my wife, my neighbors and myself would like to thank you for such a great product that we will get a lot of use out of over the years.

I have several minor issues with this system
The nylon collar is a bit cheaper then what you would expect.
There are several random weak spots where the system runs parallel to my cable lines.
The collar is a little heavier then what I expected for my very small dog

The Pros

Very heavy duty wire including the twisted wire, at least 5 times thicker than what I had seen in petco and other websites
The upgraded surge protector seem beefy and has a Lifetime warranty according to Flexpetz and the retail box
It comes with twisted wire, which made installation much easier
3 year extended Flexpetz warranty
Great customer service, very impressed with the folks I spoke to at the retailer

The DIY was a great idea, save on installation. Being able to have it cover indoor and outdoors was awesome, but the best part for me was being able to add more collars. We do puppy sit, so having the system be versatile enough to accommodate those needs with the system costing an arm and leg was just awesome. Overall, I love it. As DIY systems go, you are not going to get a better system for this price and quality. The only complaint I have is the interference issues in the front of the yard, Im really hoping the dogs don't figure out that there are several weak areas. (Posted on 10/11/13)
Great System - Awesome Vaue compared to Pro Installers Review by Danny

As my friend move was helping me move into a my new house , the question came up of what would be the best built and cost effective fence that I should use for my German Shepard. The solution was the PetSafe Yard Max Fence PRO-Grade that checked off all the things he needed for to make sure his dog was safe and also didn't break the bank price wise.

Price: First of all it was the right price, seeing that you truly do get what you pay. Getting an estimate from FlexPetz was 1/5 the cost than that of the Pro's. We got several estimates, one from Dog Watch, PetStop and of course Invisible Fence.

Dog Watch wanted 1300 dollars for a system that didn't have half the features that the yard max did, they also wanted us to buy batteries for the collar from them, real expensive.
PetStop wanted 1500 dollars, nice small collar, rechargeable as well, but 1500 dollars please, so your charging me over 400 dollars per hour to install some cable
Invisible Fence - Has a system similar to the Yard Max called boundaries plus 2000 dollars then a hundred dollars per year for their expensive batteries...I don't think so. They also tried to tell me their wire is special and nobody else sells it.
Of course we chose to do it ourselves and save at least a thousand dollars. Not to mention the Yard Max Pro comes with rechargeable collars, so no batteries to buy.

Construction. These fences are built to last with heavy duty wire, and only the best surge protectors. With the three year warranty and a lifetime warranty on the parts, you really can't beat it.

Training: From what my friend has told me, there has been no problems with his dog. This fence ensures he stays where he needs to, and maintains his well trained attitude.

In all FlexPetz truly does a great job with the products the sell. Very happy with the savings and I really can't imagine you could get anything with better features and usability from one of the Pro's

Also wanted to give a shout out to Steve who walked me through the training, Thanks Steve been over a month since we installed it and its working out great.

For the love of Rambo & Maggie! Review by Debra

I live in southern Mo, where fields go and go and hills are there to climb. Being in the country has it's perks, but it also has its acres and acres of wooded land where hunters practice the sport. No Trespassing means nothing and gunfire is heard from all directions sometimes.

In 2011 My Rambo came up missing and after a couple of days searching, we found him at the creek, shot!. It was a sad time for us. We had him for 8 years and now Maggie his sister was alone. She also wept for days.

We knew that we could not stop the hunters, so we decided to put up a fence to protect and safe keep Maggie. We looked at
so many different brands and styles but either the price was to expensive, or the maintenance was ridiculous. We wanted a system that was dependable, affordable, and easy to upgrade when we wanted.

My husband came across the Petsafe Yardmax Pro-Grade and was pretty impressed by the features of the fence. It was made especially for dogs over 10 lbs, had a small and lightweight collar that when fully charged lasted about a month. It came with 500 ft. of the heavy duty wire and we purchased an extra 500 ft so that we could give Maggie extra room to run. We also loved that it had a “Run Through Feature”
and a “Space Saving Technology”so our Maggie would be safe in our zones.

The kit included everything we needed, was complete with instructions and my husband installed it with no problems. We used the staples in leiu of burying the wire. It also came with boundary flags to let the hunters know of the fence,

We loved the 3 year guarantee but so far have not needed it. The price was even more attractive at just $476.00. We know that it has saved our Maggie and we still miss our Rambo. Every cent we have spent however has been worth it.
I would highly recommend this product to anyone and have!

Thanks for reading,

Great Product Which I Recommend Review by Jane M

I recently lost my dog a few weeks ago after it managed to escape out of our backyard and ran into on coming traffic, after thousands of dollars spent on vet bills he unfortunately didn't make it, watching how upset my children were for weeks after was truly heartbreaking. After buying a new dog the next thing I went to buy was a dog security fence to make sure nothing like this ever happens again and give me a piece of mind.

I shopped around local companies and checked the phone book phoning various companies but all of the prices were extortionate or had expensive set up fees which required regular maintenance. So my next best option was to look on the internet and I checked various websites and Flexpetz name just kept coming up with excellent reviews.

Once I checked the website I was very impressed, they offered the same equipment as my local stores at a fraction of the price. After contacting customer care regarding questions about certain products and delivery I was even more impressed, the customer care are very nice people who do everything the can to satisfy the customer (hard to come across this now a days!) The Flexpetz rep steered me towards the pro grade version of the yard max, basically all the same heavy duty options the pros use for installations without the $2000 dollar price tag (although defintely more expensive then the standard installation kits you find on the internet.).

I was a bit concerned about installing the system myself, but it turned out that is was pretty simple aside from a little bit of hard labor, I ran into a few issues during the installation and was talked through them by the flexpetz rep. Really appreciative that Steve took about a half hour to walk me through some stuff.

I decided to buy the PetSafe Yard Max Pet Fence. The installation was extremely easy and you don't even notice it unless you know it's there already. I recommended this fence to all my family and friends as it's excellent value for money compared to all my local companies who probably buy from Flexpetz in the first place and charge a premium for being a middleman. The product also came with a 3 year warranty which is really impressive. I've seen the fence in action and it a great deterrent that really works!

Thanks Flexpetz, now I can let my new dog out and not have to worry! =)

Great fence Review by JohnDWill

A while ago my wife and I got an American Eskimo who we love very much. The problem was, he was always getting out and barking at people. We decided to get this pro-grade system, and it works like a charm. Our dog now knows not to go where he isn't supposed to. If this fence has a flaw, it's that the battery doesn't last that long. Still, it's well worth the price also one area in my yard is bit sporadic where the line runs next to a cable.

Great product, Pricey Review by JB

I decided to try PetSafe YardMax so we could keep our boxer in the yard. We have a fence that has a lot of gaps in it. After doing weeks of research before purchasing this one, we had found that other products had many faults and it didn't make us feel comfortable using them. One of the major faults we found in most of the systems was the distance set back, basically your dog has to stay 5-7 feet from the line. Since we have a zero lot line, this just wouldn't do, in essence our dog would have no room in the yard. The yard max is unique in the fact that the collar actually activates right on the wire and the signal field can be set to about a hundred feet on the opposite side of the wire. What a great feature, without this option I doubt we would have done a fence.

Our pet is our family and we wanted to make sure we could keep our boxer safe and happy.

The rechargeable collar was a perfect fit. It was solid. It didn't feel as if it was made with fine plastics that couldn't hold up to the weather or from an active dog that likes roll around in every surface in the backyard. The signal strength was great and the different levels of so called "Corrective Stimulation" by other companies was good too. I don't want to torture my dog just keep him in the yard.
The only real complaint I had was that one area in the yard seems to have some interference issues, the collar just doesn't react as well as it does in the rest of the yard, really shouldn't be an issue but its curious to me.

I am telling you this product has given us a lot of piece of mind and I would tell anyone that has a dog that this is a great way to keep them where they are supposed to be.

The ad on cable that comes with the pro systems is definitely noticeable, I had looked at systems from home depot, and all the materials where very cheaply made.

Definitely more expensive, but should pay for itself over time I think.

Great product / Slight interference problem Review by John Mitchison

One thing I must say is that this product has really been of great use as to keeping my dogs from getting out of my yard. I have 2 3 rottweilers, & before I even got PetSafe YardMax Pet Fence PRO-Grade, they would always find a way 2 find a gap in the fence and run off,..but NOW that I've got this product EVERYTHING's goin' just as I've planned.

I like that this company gives you the same heavy duty wire and surge protector that the Invisible Fence people use when they install a fence.

I did notice one flaw in the system, it runs parallel to my cable in the front of my house, so the collar randomly does not react to the fence, my dogs may never figure it out, but this is a concern in retrospect I would have buried the wire further back.
