The PetSafe® YardMax® Rechargeable In-Ground Fence™ Receiver Collar (Model No. PIG00-11116) is a receiver collar that you can use with compatible PetSafe fence systems, such as the PetSafe® YardMax™ Rechargeable In-Ground Fence™ (Model No. PIG00-11115), to help remind your pet to stay within established boundaries.

How does the PetSafe YardMax Rechargeable In-Ground Fence Receiver Collar work?
The PetSafe YardMax Rechargeable In-Ground Fence Receiver Collar works by the receiver collar emitting a tone as your pet approaches a boundary limit that you set with your PetSafe Fence/Barrier System. If your pet continues to approach the boundary limit after the tone has been emitted, the receiver collar will issue a static correction.
PetSafe Fence/Barrier Systems are not designed to be solid barriers; when used in conjunction with the YardMax Rechargeable In-Ground Fence Receiver Collar, they simply act as deterrents to help you teach your pet to stay within established boundaries.
There is no guarantee that these systems will keep your pet from entering restricted areas, and you must responsibly reinforce training with your pet on a regular basis. Be sure to thoroughly research the products’ functions and review the manuals before purchasing and implementing them into your training regimen.
What kind of battery or charger do I need for my PetSafe YardMax Rechargeable In-Ground Fence Receiver Collar?
The PetSafe YardMax Rechargeable In-Ground Fence Receiver Collar uses a built-in, non-replaceable rechargeable battery. The battery charger for the collar is typically included with your purchase of the product, and it has two jacks so that you can charge two collars simultaneously.
Since there is no way to remove and replace the battery from the unit, if your battery is no longer operating, you will need to replace the entire collar.
How do I know if the battery in my PetSafe YardMax Rechargeable In-Ground Fence Receiver Collar is still working?
You can test the battery operation in the YardMax Rechargeable In-Ground Fence Receiver Collar by removing the collar from your pet and walking into the boundary zone you have set up with the Receiver Collar in your possession. The Receiver Collar should emit a tone or stimulation (depending on the settings you selected when setting up your PetSafe Fence/Barrier System). If it does not, it could be a sign that the collar needs to be replaced.
Where can I get a replacement collar for my PetSafe YardMax Rechargeable In-Ground Fence System?
How long does the PetSafe YardMax Rechargeable In-Ground Fence Receiver Collar take to fully charge?
The PetSafe YardMax Rechargeable In-Ground Fence Receiver Collar takes about 2-3 hours to fully charge.
After I fully charge my PetSafe YardMax Rechargeable In-Ground Fence Receiver Collar, how long does each charge last?
Depending on how often your pet tests the boundaries and how frequently the warnings are emitted, each charge can last up to 3 months, but it is important to check the battery regularly to ensure that your system works properly.
Note that the Receiver Collar will enter sleep mode to help conserve battery life if the collar has not been moved for at least 20 seconds. You can wake up the Receiver Collar by picking it up and flipping it over or shaking it.
How do I know when to charge the battery in my PetSafe YardMax Rechargeable In-Ground Fence Receiver Collar?
There is a Receiver LED Indicator Light that slowly blinks red every 4 seconds when the battery is low, indicating that it needs to be charged.
