The invisible fence concept goes a step further with the PetSafe Stay! Mat Wireless Crate, letting you micromanage exactly where your pet sits and stays using electronic reinforcement. This nasty little electric shock device keeps your dog bound to one spot and assures you that he's not going to be moving anytime soon.

Activate the battery-operated mat and soon that dog will learn that if he takes one step off it, he'll get what the company calls a "mild static correction," or for the rest of us, the thing will shock the bejeezus out of the poor animal. It has four adjustable levels of electrocution, as well as a beep-only mode if you just can't bear to punish the poor pooch.


So if you're willing to do just about anything to stop the dog from watching you having sex, here's the product for you. Just keep reminding yourself how nice it is to be at the top of the food chain.
