However, the transmitter has high-tech features such as Temp & Wire Check and multiple frequency selection to avoid interference for neighboring dog fences.

The collar that is included with this eXtreme Dog Fence® Active in-ground fence system is powered by this battery:
- Perimeter 6-Volt Battery (PTPRB-003) –The average life of this battery is 2-4 months.
- Comes with a 5-year warranty.
Digital Frequency Encoding: The digital frequency encoding is a helpful feature if you think a neighbor may have an electric dog fence. This tech feature eliminates stray signal interference from neighboring dog fence systems.
Small & Lightweight: One of the lightest and smallest collars in the industry, the eXtreme Active Collar only weighs 1.1 ounces. This makes it a great choice for dogs weighing as little as 8 pounds. If you dog is smaller than that, the PetSafe Elite Little Dog system would be a good choice. It has a weaker correction strength as well as a tiny collar.
Comfort Contacts: The eXtreme Dog Fence collar comes with a set of contact points that are covered in a conductive rubber, known as Comfort Contacts™. They still allow the correction to be delivered through them. The difference is that the rubber is softer and therefore more comfortable for the dog. This makes our system ideal for dogs with sensitive skin.
7 Individual Correction Settings: In addition to 7 levels of correction, the eXtreme Dog Fence collar has a beep only mode that is used for training. Levels 1-5 are a steady correction, where levels 6 and 7 are progressive. A progressive level means the correction starts out low and ramps up to a higher level. The correction levels are set on the transmitter itself, as opposed to being set on the collar. As mentioned, the correction level on each collar can be set independently. This makes the eXtreme system ideal for multi-dog households that weigh 8 pounds or more.
Battery Check: Our patented battery check feature makes sure that you only change the battery when it is truly depleted. This feature auto-activates every 2 hours to ensure you know as soon as your battery has become low.
Fully Waterproof: There are no dials or buttons on the collar itself. This allows the collar to be truly waterproofed. In fact, it can be fully submersed and still function properly. Due to this feature, it makes an excellent choice for properties that have lakes, ponds or pools, or places that have a rainy climate.
Disposable Proprietary Battery: The eXtreme Collar runs on a proprietary battery that is disposable. This may be considered a drawback for those who prefer a rechargeable collar. However, because it is not rechargeable, it is nice that you don’t have to remember to recharge it every day. You can expect each battery to require changing every 3-4 months. Your collar will begin blinking about 1 week before the battery in the collar has completely depleted.
Multiple Frequencies: The multiple frequency selection is one of the standout features of the eXtreme Dog Fence® transmitter. This feature ensures that your dog fence will work without interruption, even if your neighbor has an electric dog fence as well.
Adjustable Boundary Zone: You are able to adjust the boundary zone width on the transmitter. This means that you are able to control how close your dog gets to the wire before receiving a correction. The boundary zone width adjustment of the eXtreme Dog Fence® is completely digital, so you are able to make precise adjustments.
Temp Check & Wire Check: The Temp Check feature on the eXtreme Dog Fence® means that the system automatically senses and adjusts for temperature and electrical changes that could affect the performance of your dog fence boundary wire. In extreme climates, this becomes really important. Its Wire Check feature means that the transmitter will audibly alert you if there is a break or inconsistency in your dog fence wire.
10 Acre Capacity: Our eXtreme Dog Fence® is capable of containing a property of 10 acres or less. This is enough for most situations, either in the country or the city.
Lacks Battery Backup: It should be noted that should the power go out, your dogs will be unprotected. This is because the system does not have a battery backup, in case of a power failure. Although the transmitter is very reliable, should the power go out, your fence will not be operational.
