The Humane Contain Model X-10 rechargeable multi-function electronic dog fence brings you the most advanced electronic fence technology for highly humane and extremely reliable operation. You don't need to guess the appropriate stimulus intensity. This system does not rely on manual stimulus levels or stimulus zones. It uses the Pulsed Proportional Stimulus System, a proprietary technology that automatically adjusts stimulus intensity based upon your dog's distance from the boundary. This keeps your dog reliably contained without unnecessary over-stimulation. The waterproof, lightweight, ultra-slim collar has a rechargeable battery. The collar also features an ultrasonic transmitter that controls optional electronic pet doors, indoor and outdoor sonic fences and scat pad accessories from High Tech Pet. You may use this product as a stand-alone electronic fence or mix and match the accessories to create your own custom electronic pet care system. One small collar controls everything. The system comes with a waterproof, outdoor mountable transmitter with coded digital signal, fully illuminated status panel, audible and visual wire break alarms, power boost switch and variable field width control. The transmitter also accepts an optional, rechargeable back-up battery (model B-12V-0.8) that keeps your system operational during a power outage and automatically recharges when power is restored. Kit includes TX-1 transmitter, RX-10 multi-function collar, collar charger, 500-feet of Ultra-Wire, 50 boundary flags, 5 wire splices, AC adapter for transmitter and AC adapter for charger.
I purchased the High Tech Pet Humane Contain X-10 Rechargeable Multi-function Electronic Dog Fence which is essentially the same product with a more advanced collar to be able to operate all the products High Tech Pet has. I am NOT a fan of electric fences for dogs, however, I have a stubborn Siberian who kept escaping our yard and running over to the neighbors and killing their cats. We had to do something. (Our physical fence is 8 feet high and has a two stage barrier, meaning she has to get past a security fence placed around the original fence. Rebar was placed 4 inches appart along the bottom of the fence and she was still escaping [we live on 5 acres]).Setup took 2 hours and the RX-10 collar was charged out of the box. I know this because I tested it on myself several times before putting it on my dog. I am a trainer myself and will not use negative stimulus training unless I know the extent of the correction. Once setup, we showed my Siberian the boundaries and she would get the minor pulse and be confused. I decided to let her off leash and feel the full correction. She went to her usual spot and was corrected at full intensity (she needed it, trust me). She has never tried to test the boundaries again, as long as she is wearing the collar. In defense of your comment, the instrructions are not very clear as to how to charge the battery. At one point it says to charge it with the unit on, then at another with the unit off. I found it charges best with the unit off. My only other problem with the collar is there is no way to just make it beep, since once she had the full correction, she no longer needed the correction. The tech support was worthless as is with most products on the market today. I hope the Pet Safe works for you. Without the Humane Contain, I might have had to build a permanent kennel for my Sibe.
