I have lived next to one for 10 years with no problems.  One qualification, 
though - I see that PetSafe now makes a "wireless" unit that they say will 
restrict your dog to a circle of a certain size.  I don't know if these 
units use the same low frequency technology as the buried wire loop 
systems.  For that matter, I didn't see a Part 15 certification on the box, 
but it may have been on the instructions inside.
