The YardMax features two containment modes: YardMax Mode and Traditional Mode. A radio signal travels through wire that you bury, marking the boundaries you wish to set for your dog. Your dog wears a Receiver Collar that detects the signal at the boundary. As your dog approaches the boundary, the receiver issues a warning tone.
In YardMax Mode, if your dog crosses the boundary, he receives a safe but startling static correction.
In Traditional Mode, if your dog continues to approach the boundary, he receives a correction.
While harmless, these corrections will persuade him to return to the containment area you've established.

Place the Receiver Collar on your dog with the receiver hanging directly beneath you dog's neck. Adjust the collar securely so that the contact points touch the skin of your dog's neck. Make sure the collar is not so tight as to cause discomfort. When the collar is properly adjusted, you should be able to place one finger between a contact point and your dog's skin.
The Anti-Linger Prevention feature keeps your dog from staying in the Warning Zone for long periods of time and draining the Receiver Collar rechargeable battery. Your dog will hear a two second warning tone when he reaches the Warning Zone. If your dog does not return to the Pet Area after two seconds, he will receive a continuous Static Correction until he returns to the Pet Area.
Run Through Prevention:
In YardMax Mode when your dog crosses over the wire and passes the Warning Zone, Static Correction is activated at a variable distance dependent on the height of the dog and the height of the receiver activation distance setting. For example, a dog 2.5 feet tall with activation height 1.5 feet above his neck would detect a warning tone distance of about 2.5 feet before Run-Through Prevention would occur.
In Traditional Mode, this system includes a unique "run-through" prevention so that your dog cannot escape the Pet Area without receiving an increased level of Static Correction. The Receiver Collar automatically increases the Static Correction when your dog continues more than 20% of the way through the Warning Zone. For example, if the signal is detected 10 feet from the wire and your dog enters the Static Correction Zone, this feature is activated when he is approximately 8 feet from the Boundary Wire. Your dog will then receive a Static Correction that is at an increased level corresponding to the Static Correction level setting on the Receiver Collar.
Over Correction Protection:
YardMax Mode: In the unlikely event that your pet "freezes" or continues beyond the boundary, the Static Correction duration continues for 15 seconds. The Receiver Collar locks out further Static Correction and the green light will remain on for 10 seconds. The Receiver Collar remains locked out until the pet re-enters the Pet Area.
Traditional Mode: In the unlikely event that your pet "freezes" in the Static Correction Zone, this feature limits the Static Correction duration to 15 seconds. While the Receiver Collar locks out further Static Correction, the green light will remain on for 10 seconds.
