Product Description

PetSafe Pawz Away Instant Pet Barrier (formerly the Innotek Indoor Zone-Pet Barrier) is designed by professionals to instantly keep your dog away from problem areas in your home — no training necessary. Unlike other deterrents,the Instant Pet Barrier is totally cordless/wireless. You can put the Barrier near anything you want your pet to avoid the trash, kitchen counter, dining room table, baby’s crib or protect your furniture. When using the Pet Barrier take these three simple steps:

  • 1) select the area
  • 2) set the zone’s protection coverage area between 2′ and 12′ feet in diameter
  • 3) fit the contoured collar to your dog or cat. Enjoy your pet free zone!

Your dog collar will work with as many zones as you have problem areas. Zone 1 comes with a small dish and a collar. You put the dish in the area that you would like your dog to stay out of and set it from 2 to 12 feet. When the dog comes within the set “zone” the collar will admit a warning beep. If the dog comes closer the collar will admit a small “static” shock. If the dog comes closer, the level of stimulation will increase until the dog realizes the area is out-of-bounds! The collar does admit a shock, but its a static shock. It feel similar to when you rub your feet on the carpet and touch a door knob. It doesn’t hurt, but is very annoying. You can purchase multiple dishes for different areas of your house, garden, ect. You can also purchase multiple collars depending on how many dogs you have.

What Do You Get For Your Money?

What is each dog owner’s initial main concern? Keeping your pet dog protected and sheltered! In numerous cases an underground dog barrier may simply be the solution. Maybe your homeowner’s organization does not permit hideous pet barriers where you will keep your dogs. Perhaps the cost of a conventional barrier is just not in your financial plan. Perhaps your strong-minded dog keeps finding techniques through, beneath or above your conventional barrier. Whatever the grounds and alternative dog barrier, when correctly set up and your dog correctly trained, is an effectual, caring and inexpensive answer for most dogs.

When choosing to set up an underground dog barrier you may have a tendency to consider only about keeping your darling home and from this viewpoint they typically work exceptionally well. There are, on the other hand, outside authority you must consider prior to purchasing and setting up your railing. One of the prime disadvantages of an underground dog railing is that, although it will carry on your dog in, it cannot keep additional dogs, animals, predators or even people out. If you reside in a busy area with a lot of foot travel or a large number of people walking their pet dogs past your border line you may need to think about keeping your border distant back from these neighborhood or setting up a conventional fence of several kinds in this part of your backyard.

Pros for Petsafe Pawz Away Instant Pet Barrier

  1. Has a A, B, and AB setting which lets you control individual dog access to areas or objects (such as separate food bowls for special diets, rooms, etc)
  2. The shock is mild but definitely uncomfortable (I tested it on me before I used it on the dogs). It is milder than the strong static shocks I regularly get around the house.
  3. The dogs quickly learn to avoid things that cause shocks.

Cons for Petsafe Pawz Away Instant Pet Barrier

  1. Collar wear is recommended to be limited to 12 hours due to rubbing by the stud on the neck. This can be a problem with intelligent dog and schedules requiring longer wear times. Intelligent dogs can quickly learn that the collar is the source of the shock and can wait until they are not wearing it to get into the forbidden.
  2. The range increments listed (2-12 ft) are not dependable. I find mine, with direct line of sight, is half that or less.
  3. The six available range settings are not enough. There are times that 1 or 2 ft increment is too much.
  4. Area of affect is spherical. Keep this in mind when deciding where to use them. Depending on the range setting, just walking by the counter or under the table can set them off even if all you intended was to discourage Fluffy’s nose from appearing on the counter/table top. The only way to alleviate this is to find some way to dangle the zone from the ceiling to correctly limit the reaction area to those 3 ft off the floor.
