To change modes:
All Indoor Barriers and receivers come factory set to Mode A. There is no need to change modes or program unless you have multiple pets that have separate restricted areas. Collars set to mode A or mode B will each receive a signal from the transmitter if it set to mode AB. To change the mode:
To program receiver collar:
To place the barrier:
The Barrier Transmitter emits a radio signal from all sides in an elliptical pattern. The signal may transmit through a wall or the ceiling/floor. The Barrier Transmitter can be placed laying flat on a surface or hung on a wall. If you choose to hang the Barrier Transmitter, note that the signal becomes very directional—the signal will be strongest directly in front of and behind the unit. The signal is weakest to the side of the unit.
To test the range:
Note: Should you find that you are not getting the desired range at the maximum setting, move the Barrier Transmitter a foot, or change from its standing-on-end position to laying flat. Metal objects can alter the magnetic field and change the transmitting signal range. The effect on the range depends on the size and shape of the objects. Signal range can be reduced if the Barrier Transmitter is placed on a concrete floor, due to steel reinforcement in the concrete. For best range results, place the Barrier Transmitter on a nonconductive surface, i.e., wood floor or table. Placing the Barrier Transmitter beneath sofas and beds can reduce the range due to the metal springs altering the magnetic field.Close
The PetSafe® Pawz Away® Pet Barriers teach your pet to avoid the Barrier Areas you have set after receiving a Progressive Static Correction. Your pet will learn that he is more comfortable when he avoids the Barrier Areas.
In some cases, it may not be necessary to train your pet. You can let your pet wander freely to determine the new boundaries. Monitor your pet during his first session. Pets learn at different rates and it may take several times for your pet to successfully understand and honor the Barrier Areas.
Begin Your Pet’s First Session
If your pet is confused or unsure how to avoid the Barrier Areas then you may need to teach your pet how to do so by following these easy training steps:
If your pet is having trouble recognizing the barrier, you may need to provide a temporary visual aid. PetSafe® Boundary Flags can be placed around the perimeter of the Barrier Area to help your pet understand where he is not allowed to roam. Once your pet is trained to respect the barrier, the flags can be removed.
Important: Proper fit and placement of your Receiver Collar is necessary for effective operation. The Contact Points must have direct contact with your pet’s skin on the underside of his neck.
CAUTION: Proper fit of the collar is important. A collar worn for too long or made too tight on the pet’s neck may cause skin damage. Ranging from redness to pressure ulcers; this condition is commonly known as bed sores.
These steps will help keep your pet safe and comfortable. Millions of pets are comfortable while they wear stainless steel contacts. Some pets are sensitive to contact pressure. You may find after some time that your pet is very tolerant of the collar. If so, you may relax some of these precautions. It is important to continue daily checks of the contact area. If redness or sores are found, discontinue use until the skin has fully healed. You may need to trim the hair in the area of the Contact Points. Never shave the dog’s neck; this may lead to a rash or infection.
To ensure a proper fit, please follow these steps:
The PetSafe® Pawz Away® Mini Pet Barrier keeps your pet away from a certain room, away from trash, off of furniture, etc. Just place the Barrier Transmitter near the area your pet should avoid. The Mini Pet Barrier transmits an elliptical radio signal adjustable up to 5 feet. Your pet wears a Receiver Collar with Contact Points that touch his neck. When your pet enters the Barrier Area, he’ll hear a series of audible tones from the Receiver Collar and he will feel a safe Progressive Static Correction, delivered through the Contact Points on his neck. The Progressive Static Correction will get his attention, but will not cause harm. The correction continues until your pet leaves the Barrier Area. The PetSafe® Pawz Away® Mini Pet Barrier has been proven safe, comfortable, and effective for pets at least 6 months old and 5 pounds or more.
The barrier also allows you to keep certain pets away while giving other pets access. When the Barrier Transmitter and Receiver Collar are set to mode A, the Barrier Transmitter denies access to pets wearing a Receiver Collar programmed to mode A. Receiver Collars set to mode B will not pick up the signal from a Barrier Transmitter set to mode A. When the Barrier Transmitter and Receiver Collar are set to mode B, the Barrier Transmitter denies access to pets wearing a Receiver Collar programmed to mode B. Receiver Collars set to mode A will not pick up the signal from a Barrier Transmitter set to mode B. When the Barrier Transmitter is set to mode AB, the Barrier Transmitter denies access to all pets wearing the Receiver Collar, no matter which mode the receiver is programmed to.Close
