Overview PetSafe YardMax PIG00-11115 PRO-Grade ManualProduct Manual
The YardMax is the newest fence from PetSafe. This system takes the best features from all other PetSafe systems and adds a few new features. The YardMax system boasts one of the most compact and lightweight collars on the market, yet still manages one of the highest maximum correction settings as well as individual correction levels for each collar on the system, so its a great choice for most breeds and an equally good choice for single and multi-dog households. The YardMax collar is compatible with all 3 PetSafe Pawz Away indoor and outdoor barriers. The most exciting new feature is the system's namesake - the YardMax space-saving technology. In YardMax mode, the correction zone extends infinitely on the outside of your boundary wire to maximize yard space while making it more difficult for your dog to run through. Our PRO-Grade System adds professional-grade burial wire, dual function surge protector, ground staples, and an extended warranty.


Kit Includes
  • PRO-Grade 14-Gauge Wire (500 ft.)
  • PRO-Grade 16-Gauge Twisted Wire (50 ft.)
  • PRO-Grade Surge Protection Module
  • PRO-Grade Dog Fence Staples (10)
  • Dual Mode Transmitter
  • Rechargeable Collar Receiver
  • Collar Receiver Charger
  • 2 Waterproof Splice Kits
  • 50 Training Boundary Flags
  • Long and Short Receiver Contacts
  • Contact Point Training Caps
  • Test Light Tool/Contact Wrench
  • Installation/Training Manual


Collar Features

Small & Lightweight: The PetSafe YardMax collar uses a very small collar. Suitable for dogs as little as 10 lbs., the entire collar weighs only 3 oz. This collar is almost as tiny as the PetSafe Elite Little Dog PRO-Grade, but doesn't have quite as low correction levels.

Five Progressive Correction Levels: The YardMax offers 5 progressive correction level setting for each dog on the system. The correction levels are adjusted on the collar itself. Despite the small size, the correction levels range from medium to strong - stronger than the PetSafe UltraSmart system but not quite as strong as the Stubborn Dog. 

Individual Correction: PetSafe has finally developed a system with individual correction level settings so you can effectively use a YardMax collar for each dog over 10 lbs. with its own correction level settings. No more mix & match PetSafe collars!

Rechargeable: The collar uses a rechargeable lithium-ion battery. The collar battery is recharged by way of a charging cord that plugs into a port on the underside of the collar. The collar charges in about 2 hours and the charge lasts about a month. 

Fit Test & Ready Test: A poorly fitted collar is the second most common problem leading to less than 100% containment (incomplete training being the #1 reason). The YardMax collar offers the Fit Test feature. This handy feature confirms that the collar is properly fitted each time you put it on your dog.

Short & Long Contact Points: The system comes with both short and long contact points as well as a contact point tool. The small wrench makes switching contact points easier. Long contact points are particularly useful for dogs with thick or long fur. 

Pet Barrier Compatibility: The YardMax collar is compatible with PetSafe's Pawz Away Outdoor Pet Barrier, Pawz Away Indoor Pet Barrier, Pawz Away Indoor Mini-Pet Barrier, and Pawz Away Threshold Pet Barrier



Transmitter Features

YardMax™ Mode: The most exciting feature of the new PetSafe YardMax is the system's namesake YardMax™ mode. This is the first system ever to offer a unique space-maximizing feature that projects the correction zone only on the outside of the wire rather than in all directions so you can really make the most of your yard space.  

Run-Through Prevention: The run-through prevention is another unique and really useful feature. Most dog fence systems have a set boundary width so the dog can actually run all the way through the boundary zone to where he is no longer being corrected but will receive a correction again if he tries to re-enter his yard. But in YardMax mode, the correction zone continues indefinitely on the outside of the boundary wire so the dog cannot run all the way through the boundary. For safety, the system still has a 10 second timeout on the correction, but this feature will really help with training. 

10 Acre Capacity: The YardMax is capable of powering 10 acres. While this is suitable for most suburban properties, we wish it was strong enough to power larger rural spaces as well.  

Lacks Backup Battery: This PetSafe system does not offer a battery backup for the transmitter. While this isn't a problem for many of our customers, it is certainly something to consider if you live in an area prone to power outages.



PRO-Grade Upgrades

 

500 ft. Heavy Duty Pro-Grade Wire: Our Pro-Grade Kits include upgraded 14-gauge PRO-Grade wire. This heavy duty, polyelethene plastic coated wire is what would come with a professionally installed system like Invisible Fence®. Upgrading to thicker, more durable wire helps prevent costly and time-consuming wire breaks. 

50 ft. Heavy Duty Pro-Grade Twisted Wire: Although you could use two double long strands of wire to make your own twisted wire, this gets pretty messy and difficult if you need any decent length of it. Our PRO-Grade DIY dog fence kits save you the hassle by including 50 ft. of heavy duty pro-grade twisted neutral dog fence wire. 

10 Heavy Duty Ground Staples: Ground staples are perfect for laying out your dog fence wire or for installations that run through terrain where burying the wire is difficult or impossible. Our heavy duty ground staples are guaranteed to keep your dog fence wire in place.

 

External Surge Protection: External surge protection is the best thing you can do to protect your investment. Rather than let a rogue power surge blow your transmitter, simply plug in our heavy duty PRO-Grade surge protection module. This surge protector keeps your dog fence safe from lightening strikes and main power surges.

Good system | Works well several minor issues

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.

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!

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,

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! =)

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.

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.

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.

I was always skeptical about an invisible fence for my dogs and worried if it would actually work. The other problem was the cost, I had looked into a few companies and they cost a few thousand dollars. After moving to a house with much bigger property, and having to go outside with my two dogs multiple times a day and them pulling me on the leash because they just want to run free, I decided to look into the invisible fence again. I came across reviews about the PetSafe YardMax Pet Fence ProGrade and was thrilled. Not only did it cost a fraction of the price, a few hundred compared to thousands but it offered great features. I don't have to buy batteries like I was told with the other companies every so often that cost around hundred dollars because this battery is rechargeable, but I only have to charge it about once a month. Another thing I love about the YardMax is the collars fit perfect and make sure every time you put it on it is fit correctly on your dog so they cannot get it off. The collars are also lightweight so my dogs don't mind having it on.

The system was easy to install and when I wasn't sure about something when setting up the fence I called customer service and was given professional and courteous help. The run through prevention was great , since one time my dog decided to try to chase a squirrel across the line, he ran about ten feet into the fence and came running back, this was the last time he tested it.

I would recommend this system to anyone with dogs, it is great as an owner to know my dogs are safe and i don't have to walk them all the time with a bad back and they have their freedom of running. I have border collies that are natural herding dogs and runners so they love they're new found freedom and are intelligent and learned the boundaries fairly quickly. I wish I could thank the actual inventor of this product and how they looked at flaws from other companies such as price, purchasing batteries, correcting settings on collars and space maximizer and came up with the PetSafe YardMax Pet Fence ProGrade. It really is professional quality and is worth every penny and has a three year guarantee, which not every company offered.

I can not stress enough how much it has improved the quality of life for my dogs and myself. Having an injury is not easy, walking the dogs and they want to run around without being restricted but of course as an owner you worry about letting your dogs run free and fearing they get lost or injured. Having the PetSafe system has made it easier on me not hurting myself by running with my dogs and they love being outside in the fresh air and not having to wait on me to take them out. I love this product and my only regret is that I wish I found it sooner.

I have two Jack Russel Terriers and some how they always find a way to get thru our post and rail fence. Being a pet owner to these dogs our dogs are like our children that get into everywhere and anywhere and if you are familiar with Jacks, you would know they tend to get into everything and anything .One of my close friends found this site online and told me about it . I decided to call as opposed to trying to siphon through so much information on the internet. My friend who had bought a pet fence from them told me it was worth every penny she spent and she had told me she had called them a bunch of times and had always gotten very helpful professional advice.

So i talked to my skeptical husband to see what he thought, he cautioned me to do a little more research. So after a bunch of calls to Flexpetz I ordered the YardMax PRO-Grade Pet Fence. It came within 3 days shipping was and free . So me and my husband took the day off from work to installed the pet fence, although the installation was required some digging and was hard work, generally speaking it was simple enough for a homeowner with very little mechanical ability to tackle.

One thing I really liked about the Yard Max system pro was the heavy duty wire, the kit also came with a flimsy wire in the package from the manufacturer, this wire seemed to be very low quality and I really cant image it would last. I think my favorite feature about the system is that the warning and shock actually start right on the wire, in comparison other fence systems we had looked at started 4-5 five feet away from the wire, with a quarter acre lot, this would have lost a good portion of our yard. The one complaint that I have about the system was the price, definitely much more expensive then some of the other ones we had looked at by a couple of hundred dollars, but I believe it is worth it in the long run because of the heavier duty materials. We did get an estimate from Invisible Fence and there cost for an installation was about 3 times as expensive, we also did a little investigating and found that there batteries cost almost a hundred dollars a year per dog, the sales man was very general land seemed to be almost embarrassed by this when we called him on in. This system seems to be just as good and use rechargeable batteries. It has been almost a month now since we installed it, the dogs learned the boundaries very quickly and we are quite happy and my husband is no longer skeptical, probably the biggest fan since he doesn't have get up and take the dogs outside every hour.

This fence is great and has certainly made life owning to crazy Jack Russel Terriers much easier.

Ok, here is what happened. My family has 6 little dogs (20 pounds and under) and we recently moved from a large apartment in the city to a big house with 2 acres in the country. For the first week everything was great, the dogs loved playing outside and the fence that was there seemed to be working great, until we got a call from both of our neighbors letting us know that our dogs were tearing up their flower beds and chasing their cats all around their yards. We had a problem; they were digging under the fence in loose dirt.

Our neighbors gave us 2 weeks to fix it, or they were going to call the homeowners and in our neighborhood, that is terrible.
To solve the problem I called out a local pet fence installer and he pitched an electric system with special collars for each dog. The fence price was over 3500 dollars and it came and that didn't include the yearly battery charges.. I started researching on the internet and after hours of looking, I came across this website. I checked out the features and the availability of multiple collars (six to be exact) along with the price, it was one fifth the cost of the similar system but with more features. I ordered immediately and received it in about 3 days, definitely fast shipping.

When I got the system, I was impressed, the collars were rechargeable, a blessing when you have six dogs especially when I found out that it was about 85 dollars a year per dog to replace the batteries on the fence that the local guy pitched. The system was easy to install, although it did require about a days labor, and the wire that came with it was surprisingly heavy duty (the local guy pitched that his wire was the strongest and only pro dealers carried this type of wire. (The wire I received from flexpetz looks exactly like the samples he showed me.) I also added the option to have the indoor system and now I can keep the dogs out of my room or the bathroom whenever I want.

This was worth every penny alone.) Another one of the pro guys pitches was that he would service the system, when I pressed him on this he basically stated they would have to charge me 95 dollars every time they came out after the first year. Its really not that complicated, I has several technical questions and I was walked through them over the phone, so not really to worried about service its really pretty simple.
All in all, I couldn’t be happier with the price, the product and the fact that my neighbors no longer give me dirty looks. Oh, and I also get to take a nap in my own bed on the weekend without six little friends to keep me company.

One thing I have to mention is yes I found this product at other places, for cheaper but, none of them heavy duty materials that came with this, none of the ones that I called where very knowledgable about the system and basically just wanted to sell me a box of stuff. In the long run I know if ever have a technical problem I will get help. Also worth spending more to not have to deal with issues.

Thanks for all the help guys, you guys are fantastic
