Smallest and Lightest Collar

The Petsafe Little Dog (PIG20-11041) is a system designed specifically for small dogs. Accordingly it has a smaller collar and milder corrections than regular systems.

Tiny Collar

The PetSafe Elite Little Dog In-Ground Fence is the smallest and lightest dog fence collar available. The collar weighs just 2 ounces, and has lower correction levels better suited to small dogs. The small size of the collar allows you to use the collar with dogs as small as 5 lbs.

Compatible with Other Collars

The collars on the PetSafe Little Dog, PetSafe Stubborn, PetSafe Deluxe, and PetSafe InGround are all intercompatible. This allows you to use a mix of collars on the same system.

Indoor Pod Compatibility

The collars on this system can be used with the ZIRF-100 PetSafe Indoor pods that you can use to block access to certain rooms, or keep the dog off the furniture.

Expensive Disposable Battery

The collars on the PetSafe Little Dog, PetSafe Stubborn, PetSafe Deluxe, and PetSafe InGround are all intercompatible. This allows you to use a mix of collars on the same system.

Small and Light Collar

The PetSafe Little Dog (PIG20-11041) sets itself apart because of the small size of it’s collar. In a tiny package, you get a full featured collar. It is however encumbered by an expensive proprietary battery.

Weights Only 2 Ounces

The Little Dog weighs only 2 ounces, about half the size of a regular collar. The collar is also about half the size and weight of a regular dog fence collar. Because of the small size and weight the collar can be used with dog as small as 5 pounds.

4 Corrections Levels

The Little Dog has four correction levels. The correction is milder than a regular strength collar to account for the smaller size of dogs these collars are intended for. The correction level is set directly on each collar using a button on the side of the collar allowing you to use a different correction level on each dog.


The Little Dog Collar is fully waterproof and can deal with full immersion in water. This is particularly useful for dogs that swim in the containment area.

Compatible with Indoor Pods

The Little Dog Collar works with the optional PetSafe Indoor Pods (see below) as well as with the basic fence. The lets you use the collar inside the home to block off certain areas or to keep the dog off furniture.

Reflective Cloth Strap

The Collar band fastens with a cloth strap and a quick-snap buckle. The collar band is smaller than the regular collar and can be shortened to fit even the smallest dogs. The cloth band has a reflective strip, to help increase visibility in the dark.

Intercompatible Collar

he PetSafe Little Dog system is compatible with a variety of other PetSafe systems. You can also use the collar on the PetSafe Stubborn, PetSafe Deluxe, and PetSafe InGround with this system.

This versatility is useful if you have dogs of very different sizes. For example if you had a 8 lb Chihuahua and a 100 lb German Shepherd, then you could use the lightweight PetSafe Little Dog collar on the later and the larger more powerful PetSafe Stubborn Dog collar on the later.

Disposable Petsafe Battery

The collar uses a PetSafe branded RFA-188 battery cartridge. The battery is small and light, but has a short 1 month life and costs about $10. We find the use of these proprietary batteries appalling. Not only is this battery expensive, it is not widely available, leading to major inconvenience and potentially leading to unsafe situations where the dog is not contained because the collar battery is flat.

There are a couple of tricks to get more life out of your battery. First, the collar can be switched off when not in use. Switching the collar off at night will add about 30% to your battery life. Second, you can replace the PetSafe battery with a $4 generic battery by jimmying open the PetSafe battery and replacing the CR1/3N 3 Volt battery inside (available online or at RadioShack / Wal-Mart).

PetSafe Transmitter

The Little Dog comes bundled with the premium 25 acre transmitter also included with the PetSafe Deluxe. The transmitter is hooked up to the boundary wire and sends a signal through the wire that creates the layout perimeter.

Adjustable Boundary Width

The transmitter has a control dial that can used to adjust the distance the boundary extends from the perimeter wire. You can adjust the boundary from a few inches up to around 10 feet. In a typical installation you will want to set the boundary between 3 and 5 feet.

Boundary Alarm

The transmitter sounds an alarm if you get a break in the boundary wire. When the boundary loop is working properly there is an illuminated green loop light.The transmitter sounds an alarm if you get a break in the boundary wire. When the boundary loop is working properly there is an illuminated green loop light.

25 Acre Capacity

The transmitter has a 25 acre capacity, allowing you to power up to 5,000 feet of boundary wire. This is one of the higher powered transmitters, although we are surprised to see if bundled with a small dog collar. Most owners containing small dogs are not containing more a couple of acres.

Boundary Wire & Accessories

The basic system includes 500 feet of 20 gauge boundary wire, 50 training flags, 2 wire splices, and a collar tester.

Direct Burial Wire

The standard wire is direct burial rated wire, that is designed for being buried in the ground. The PET coating on the wire holds up better against the elements than standard PVC coating on typical housing wire.

Collar Tester Tool

The tester tool is placed against the prongs on the collar and lights up when the collar is triggered. You use the tester tool when you are testing the system, and when you are marking the boundary location.

Optional Professional Gauge Wire

The standard 20 gauge wire included in the basic system can be upgraded to the stronger 18, 16, and 14 gauge wire. 14 gauge wire has a conductor and protective jacket four times thicker than the standard wire.

Using the thicker wire provides protection against wire breaks. There is also a small benefit in superior transmission characteristics.

Lightning Protection Module

The system will work with the Lightning Protection Module (can add at check out). The module connect to the boundary wire before it goes to the transmitter and stops lightning surges from going back up through the wire and frying the transmitter. The lightning protection module is particularly useful in areas where there are frequent lightning strikes and on large properties.

500 Feet of Wire, 50 Flags

The system also comes bundled with 500 feet of standard 20 gauge perimeter wire. It also includes 50 flags for marking the boundary line when the dog is being trained. The included wire and flags are sufficient for covering one-third of an acre. Additional boundary kits ($30 per 500 feet) can be purchased to boost the capacity up to a maximum of 25 acres (5,000 feet).

PetSafe Indoor Pods (optional)

The PetSafe Little Dog Collars work with the optional PetSafe Indoor Pods (ZIRF-100) to block access to parts of the house. The wireless pods ($50) create a small circular exclusion around them that you can use to stop a dog going into certain rooms, or to keep the dog off particular pieces of furniture. The radius of the exclusion zone is adjustable from 2 to 10 feet.

    I together with my pals came checking out the best guides located on the website while all of a sudden I got a horrible suspicion I had not expressed respect to the blog owner for them. All of the people are already for this reason passionate to see all of them and have pretty much been enjoying those things. Appreciation for genuinely indeed accommodating as well as for obtaining these kinds of cool information most people are really eager to know about. My honest regret for not saying thanks to you sooner.
