Stay + Play PIF00-12917



The Petsafe Stay + Play wireless dog fence is the new and improved version of the classic Petsafe PIF-300 wireless fence (which incidentally was the first ever wireless pet fence). The new model is smaller and sleek which is certainly welcome. But the main improvement is in the collars – they are rechargeable and don’t require the special batteries that are necessary for the older model. Additionally, the new equipment (base unit and collars) are compatible with the old system. Nice touch Petsafe!

Petsafe Stay and Play Transmitter

The new Petsafe wireless instant fence transmitter is considerably smaller than the old version. It’s about the size of a half-gallon bucket and is modern and sleek looking. The range is a bit bigger with a 105 ft. radius (vs. the old unit at 90 ft.) so your dog(s) get a bit more play area – about 3/4 acre. Like the old system, you can use more than one unit to overlap “circles” to make a larger containment area. You can’t do that with competing systems.

Also, there is an alarm that lets you know if there is a power failure which would obviously render the unit inoperable.

Stay and Play Rechargeable Collars

Thank goodness for the rechargeable collars that supersede the collars which require special proprietary batteries. The lithium ion battery is charged through a connection under the collar strap. A complete charge takes about 3 hours but lasts for a couple of weeks. This is considerably better than the competition (Havahart and Perimeter systems collars keep a charge for about 3 days). However, the battery is integrated into the collar so it can’t be switched out. This shouldn’t be a problem though, as according to most Petsafe wireless fence reviews this type battery lasts a long while.

The old collars were water resistant but this new model is completely waterproof – a nice feature for water loving dogs! You will receive two sets of prongs; a long set for long haired dogs and a short set for dogs with short hair. These are easily changed out with the enclosed tool. The mode button is actually between the prongs and can be set to 5 levels of static correction or a tone only mode. A light on the collar unit tells you which mode it is set to. You will also get the testing tool which you hold against the collar prongs to see if the collar is working. As you cross the boundary, the internal light on the tool will light up to confirm the collar is working. Plus, you can test the location of your wireless dog fence boundary using this method. Another nice feature is the ability to change out the actual nylon collar itself if you want something nicer or a different color. Other Petsafe wireless fence reviews leave out a great feature – the collar LED lights indicate when the collar needs recharging. This is important!

Overall Score ———- Top Notch!
Great job Petsafe!

Petsafe Wireless Fence Deal

We have found the best deal on the Petsafe PIF-300 wireless dog fence!

While we normally recommend Amazon (and still do in a lot of cases), this is a great opportunity to grab the wireless pet fence we use at a SUPER discount at a top-notch online source!

The Amazon price is currently about $252 but at Petstreet Mall you can get the unit for $280!

Hey, wait a minute. Where’d you learn math from, Cooper? That’s $28 dollars more.

Here’s the difference – batteries! And more great bonuses. Free.
(I love Pet Street Mall.)

Let’s do the math: With the Pet Street Mall deal you get a dozen batteries free. $60 real value.
You’re already $32 dollars ahead.
Amazon unit $252
Batteries   $60
Total    $312
Compare to Pet Street at $280 – you save $32.00 And yes, you WILL need the batteries even though they last a long, long time.

That’s not all…

So, why is there such a good deal on the PIF-300?
We not only love to find good deals for you, we also love to give you the whole scoop in the pet supply info department.

Here’s probably what’s going on.
Petsafe has come out with a new version:  the Stay + Play wireless dog fence. The main advantages are a little bit larger area, smaller base unit, and smaller rechargeable collars.

The new unit is backward compatible with the old one. New collars work with the old unit and the new base works with old collars. So, unless you just need the little bit of extra play space, I would take advantage of this deal. Fact is, we’re just keeping our old PIF-300 and will convert to new collars if the current ones wear out or get broken.

Here’s the decision. Grab the new Stay + Play (see reviews at Stay and Play Wireless Fence Reviews) at around $330 or save fifty bucks and get the older model with plenty of spare batteries and comfort contacts and a free PediPaw trimmer. Order the Wireless Fence Petsafe special from Pet Street Mall.

Quick Check For Best Price

This is  collar that goes with the PetSafe PIF-300-11 Wireless Pet Containment System. If you have two dogs (or more I suppose) and the transmitter, all you have to do is get one of these for your additional dog(s). When we got our second dog, we just added the extra collar, strapped it on her, and proceeded with training. Also, should your initial collar get lost or damaged, just order the replacement without having to order the whole system. Real handy!

Here’s another little tip. If the collar only gets damaged (with no damage to the electronic receiver) you can put the receiver on a new collar. This happened to us. Stella was a real chewer when she was a puppy and somehow she got hold of Coopers containment collar and chewed up the buckle. I simply ordered a new “regular” nylon collar to replace the old, torn up one. It was  easy to take the electronics off the old collar. Then I just  cut two holes in the new collar to accept the electrodes and bolted on the electronics. If you use a nylon collar, be sure to heat the cut area to fuse it together so it won’t unravel around the electrodes. I actually used a small pointed grinding stone on a Dremel tool to cut the hole and it heated and fused the nylon as the hole was made! Worked perfectly!
No charge for the great idea ;-)
