Overview PetSafe YardMax PIG00-11115 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
  • 20-Gauge Wire (500 ft.)
  • Basic Surge Protection Module
  • 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.

Do you like what you see, but want a wire that will last a whole lot longer before it begins to degrade and break down? Do you want a surge protector that does double duty (protects your fence system AND protects your home's internal electrical system from any lightning strikes that hit your boundary wire)? How about a 3 year warranty vs. a 1 year manufacturer warranty? Would you like your package to include a 1 year containment guarantee, so that you can be sure you invest in a product that will be sufficient to meet your dog's temperament and personality? If these upgrades and more strike your fancy, then perhaps you would rather invest in the PRO-Grade version of this fence system.

  • Collar Receiver Box: 2" x 1" x 1 3/8", 3 oz.
  • Collar Strap Length: 3/4" strap, fits 8-24" neck sizes



  • 1 Year + Limited Lifetime: A 1 year full warranty on the system followed by a lifetime of fixed rate repairs. The cost of the repairs depends on the nature of the problem.


  1. PetSafe YardMax Pet Fence is great. Review by Chris T.

    This dog fence system is great. I have been in the market to find a great dog fence system. And I found it on the FlexPetz website. This dog fence system has met all my requirements of being an excellent product. The Yardmax feature makes this system very versatile and valuable to me. I have a smaller yard and this feature maximizes the area that my dog can roam. This system is great and provides tremendous value to dog owners.

  2. This fence works fantastic. My training only took 4 days, and my Sasha was ready to roam. Review by Jonez Caster

    My little Sasha learned so quick. I'm so proud of her, and happy with the Yardmax fence I got from Flexpetz. We have a half acre and needed all the containment space we could afford for Sasha.
    The Yardmax only sends shocks outward from the yard, so no shock inside the wire. This is perfect.
    We trained Sasha so quicky and now she is a happy, safe puppy doggie.
    Thanks Flexpetz. (Posted on 4/30/2015)

  3. Janet Star Review by 5 stars for customer service

    I needed some advice for the right electric dog fence for my Cocker Spaniel. I called FLEXPETZ because they offer free tech support and I could not be happier with the results. Given my lack of knowledge in this area I felt there service was focused on getting me the right advise not just sell a product. The tech asked all the right questions and drilled down on the right system for my pet and yard. The Yard Max was the right choice because I have a small yard and this new technology allows Kristy (My cocker) to use the entire yard. I also purchased the cheep factory wire. I am a renter and plan on moving in a year. I did not want to buy the high quality wire and leave it behind. The factory grade wire was the perfect solution and it saved me money today.

  4. What a great deal. Review by Judy Halls

    We went with the factory grade package. The Tech a FLEXPETZ gave us the most common sense advice on this purchase. We are only going to be in our house for about a year and were planning on purchasing a Pro Grade system. After discussing this important purchase with the Tech at FLEXPETZ we decided to go with a factory grade wire so we can leave it behind when we move. This save us money today and lots of effort in removing a wire for re-installation at our new house. We will be back to buy the Extreme wire to install at our dream home.

  5. Call for advice!!! Review by Robert Furgrets

    I purchased this system to help keep my pit mix from jumping the fence. The fence works great but the wire that is sent with it is junk. I contacted flexpetz and was actually surprised to find genuine and kind customer service from the folks over there (not common nowadays). I hate salespeople so like doing my own research, but the people at flexpetz were helpful enough to let me know about the different choices in wire and pros and cons of each one. They of course recommended their extreme wire but it was in a non pushy informative way. If you are looking to purchase give them a call as there is more to these fences than I realized.

  6. Great System/High Price Review by Jason B.

    We have a smaller 1/4 acre lot and got this system on the advice from one of the techs at flexpetz. We really were not looking to spend too much and after a bit of research all the systems seemed to work basically the same so I had a hard time justifying the higher price for this system. Boy was I wrong. After setting up the system and seeing how these work I now see the benefit of having the extra room with the transmitter in yardmax mode. The pro-grade system was also recommended and after seeing the wire that comes with the system I now see why. The system is working fine for now, but as soon as we start dealing with wire breaks I will probably be coming back and springing for the good stuff. I would definitely recommend this system and if in the budget go with pro-grade as it would be nice to only have to install once.

  7. Fantastic System Review by Donald

    I was amazed by how effective the Full Yard mode function is. Our pup goes right up to the dog fence and stops. Even after walking him up to the flags, following all the suggested training steps, he still ran for the street when he snuck out of the house. He cleared the wire and suddenly yelped three times as he came around 180 and as soon as he was back in the yard, he relaxed. He hasn't crossed since. He hears the tone and backs off. My life is SO much less stressful.

    We also have two of the indoor barriers away pet barrier than work nicely with the collar. The bedrooms are all upstairs and off limits, so we have a barrier at the landing and we have one at the entrance to the kids' playroom (cluttered with every possible small, very chewable item you can think of).

    Flexpetz reps said they were working on a remote training remote that would work with the Yardmax collar. This would be awesome!

    Our dog also digs, so we got one of the outdoor paws away rocks" and it works with the dog fence collar perfectly, keeps him out of the flower beds and away from the garbage can. (Posted on 7/3/2014)

  8. Excellent System Review by Michael from NE Ohio

    YardMax system with upgraded 16 gauge wire (1000 feet) and twisted wire cost about $425 delivered. Add on the cost of renting a trencher for $70 your at $500 for a quality system. Unless it's totally dry, I recommend a standard landscape edger over the edger that buries the wire as you go. It's slightly more work to put the wire in after the trench is dug but any type of damp or wet soil and the wire burying trencher gets clogged.
    I installed the system myself and it took a total of about 8 hours. The instructions were pretty good. I had questions and Flexpetz was there to chat or talk on the phone which was great.
    As for performance, its been up and running for one month. After about one week of flag and beep training, it took about 2 days of correction for our Yorkshire-Terrier -lhasa mix to stay in the boundary. He loves to chase small animals and this caused him to test it out a few times. Since the second day everything is working great.
    Worth every bit of money and work as now we can let the dog out whenever he wants and he can also play outside with the kids without having to worry about him running off into the woods.
    He has even bolted out of the house a few times without the collar and never crossed the line.
    Great system.

  9. Great system Review by Peter Wiggins

    I love the yard max mode, this is a really great system, nice small light weight collar. Wish the battery life was a bit longer I'm getting about 4 months of charge life right now, but guess its better than having to pay for propitiatory batteries. (Posted on 8/21/2013)

Comment / Questions about PetSafe YardMax Pet Fence

November 06, 2014

So it doesn't come with a battery backup, but can I get one that I can attach?


A battery back up would work well with this system but really is not worth the cost. It would take weeks for your pet to learn a system is down. More often consumers neglect to replace the batteries in the collar which leads to weeks of no containment. Your pet will gradually learn that the fence is down and eventually cross the boundary uncorrected.

December 02, 2014

I take a horse over the area where the wire will be. Can I enclose it in pvc in that area while not having a dead spot for the dog to cross? How deep can the wire be buried?


You certainly can enclose the wire in PVC is you like the signal will easily transmit through just about anything including concrete or brick walls, so PVC will not be an issue. Another thought might be to purchase our Pro-Grade dog fence wire or upgrade to one of our prepackaged pro grade dog fence systems, these systems are actually already coated with a polyethylene coated wire which is actually better than pvc. You can bury the wire as deep or shallow as you like it will work the same way, the only reason for burial is for aesthetic value and protecting the wire against everyday property maintenance like lawn mowing and edging, some people actually lay the wire on the surface through wooded areas etc. You can also use our heavy duty dog fence wires to tack the wire to the surface of the ground as seen in this video.

I live overseas. Will this system work on 220v without a power converter? If not, how many watts does this system use so I can try to find an appropriate power converter.


All of the PetSafe products are designed for use only within the United States or Canada. The systems will operate with a converter though. You would just need to check with local authorities to be sure whichever product you choose complies with operational frequency and RoHS Laws.

Can I run the wire through a steel culvert right under the asphalt in my driveway?? also does the collar beep before correction??


Hello Cliff,

The wire can be run in said culvert, as long as you are not running it side by side with any electrical wire or cable service wire.
Also, I would keep in mind that the further from the surface that the wire is run, the less your correction range is going to be above ground. You want to ensure that you do not go too deep. If your culvert is a small one, then you'll have no problems.


April 12, 2015

Does the wire have to make a loop back to the power supply to work, or can one end of the wire be on the edge of the property, and the other end hooked up to the power supply? I don't need a perimeter fence, just a boundary between my side yard and my neighbor's.
Thanks Richard


Hi Richard,

Yes you need to make a complete circuit to make the system and wire work. However if this would be done with the Yardmax it would not work properly and the dog would have a correction no matter what due to the way the Yardmax is set up. My suggestion is to just completely enclose your yard with the Yardmax system.

Please feel free to contact us back with any further questions.

December 11, 2015

Can I hook this system up to an existing buried wire?


Yes absolutely the wire is universal.
You would just hook the wire up to the transmitter of the Yardmax and go from there.
I do recommend you use the thicker gauge of wire for longevity perferrably the 14 gauge wire.
Here is the link for the wire:

Does collar give a warning before reaching the boundary?



Thanks for the inquiry. The answer is Yes. The collar will give a 2 sec tone warning before delivering the correction. This gives the dog the opportunity to leave the warning zone.

I currently have an "invisible fence" brand buried wire system with 2 "invisible fence" collars. We are moving to a new home (and leaving our fence). What systems are compatible with the collars I currently own?


Hello Steve,
Thank you for reaching out to us.
We do not any transmitters that would be compatible to your collars. However, we do have an invisible fence trade in program, for invisible fence products:

Let me know if you have any further questions on this link.

How does the correction levels compare to the stubborn dog system? I need to upgrade my very old system, but have livestock guardians that require stubborn dog collar (vs standard collar on older systems)


Hello Jena,
The only systems that will be a good fit for for Livestock guardians will be the Sport Dog Pro-Grade and the Stubborn Dog fence Pro-Grade.
Here are the links for the both fences:
Sport Dog:

Stubborn Dog:

I do not recommend any other system as it will not be strong enough for your guardians.
Let me know if you have any questions.
I look forward to hearing from you.
