A wireless dog fence can be just what your pup needs to stay safe in the yard. Petsafe is one of the best wireless dog fence systems today. So you have just added another pup to your proud family, and now you might be wondering how to add a second collar to PetSafe wireless fence. PetSafe makes it relatively easy to do this, but you might run into some issues during setup or find yourself wanting to add shocks to the new collar.
Here is how you can have an additional receiver collar to your PetSafe wireless fence and get it all set up for use.
How Do I Add a Second Collar to my PetSafe Wireless Fence?
It is easy to add an extra receiver collar to your PetSafe wireless fence. You will need to put the receiver collar around your dog’s neck or just try holding the collar close enough so that your dog can hear the collar’s beeping sounds during the training process. Then, you will need to secure a separate, non-metallic collar above the wireless receiver collar on your dog’s neck. After that, you can simply attach a lead. You will want to make sure that the second collar does not place any pressure on the contact points.
How Do I Resync My Wireless System?
You might find that you need to sync your wireless pet containment system once more. There are a few steps in this process, so pay careful attention so that you properly follow them. Here is what you will need to do to re-sync the wireless system:
- Remove the receiver collar from around your dog’s neck.
- Remove the receiver collar’s battery.
- Change the transmitter’s limit switch from its lower position to the upper position.
- Slowly set the limit switch to 8, all the way down to 1, then back to the fourth position.
Can I Add Shocks to My Second PetSafe Collar?
If you do happen to want to add shocks to your new PetSafe collar, you will need to start off by increasing the collar’s static correction level. You can do this by just pressing the correction level button; you should see the light start blinking within 5 seconds of pressing it, which is when you need to release the button. Static Correction Levels  are able to be increased from 1 to 5. If your pet’s receiver collar is already at Level 5, pressing down on the Correction Level Button will return the collar receiver to Level 1.
How Do I Connect the Collar to the Remote Control?
Want to connect your second collar to the remote control? First, you will need to turn the your dog’s receiver collar off. You will need to restart it, so go ahead and press and hold down on the power button. You need to hold down on it until the green light on your dog’s collar receiver starts flashing about once per second. The flashing light will continue for 16 seconds, which gives it time to complete the pairing process with the remote control.
