Testing and Settings:
The test light magnet allows you to test the receiver as well as make adjustments to the 6 training levels. All the settings are designed to be Pet Friendly™ and will not hurt your pet in any way.
The system will shut down automatically after 15 seconds if your dog or cat is caught in the signal field.

The Performance Series allows you to adjust the receiver individually for each animal. Consequently, any number of dogs and cats can be on the same system.
The new Performance Series Dogwatch Hidden Fence is compatable with the older System 3000.
