I have read about some of your ideas to contain dogs without having to tie them up. Has anyone tried the electronic fence? I know that the yellow flags show the dogs the boundaries, but I wonder how long it takes them to learn not to cross the line. If you don't stay in one place long enough does it work? Does what they learn in one location carry over to the next, even with the flags?

The dogs learn the boundary fairly quickly. Biggest problems are: 1 - If they get over the line due to a strong action they can't get back in and most importantly #2 -it doesn't keep other dogs OUT!!

getting them back in wouldn't be a problem because we would never leave them un supervised. Keeping other dogs out shouldn't be a problem either. Shouldn't their owners have them under control instead of wandering about?

If you're thinking of using it while RVing, it's not going to work. It takes weeks, if not months, to train them to stay in the yard. Aneighbor, 4 houses down, trained his dog this way. Like stated above, it doesn't keep my dog out of his yard, and the older a dog gets, the more it forgets. The neighbors dog is now 9yrs old and reverting back to a "normal" dogs ways now that the electonic barrier is no longer in use.

A friend of mine has a Lab. The dog qickly learned what the boundaries were; however, he would get a running start and go through the "barrier". He did not mind the shock - running through the neighborhood was more important to him. They put up a fence.

If you are looking to contain dogs while RV'ing, we use the wire fold up kennels. This way each of our dogs (lab + beagle) has their own "home comfort zone" while on the road.

Btw, We also don't leave them outside alone as it wouldn't be fair to them or to anyone camping next to us.

We use a Superyard. It provides a nice barrier and with the extensions is plenty big enough. My golden is now too old, and was probably too compliant in her younger years to jump it.

We join two of the wire kennels together and make a decent size circle which provides enough space for the dogs to move around and do their business. JJ

We use a folding wire pen. Keeps our in and other wandering dogs out with no worries. Dogs are happy because they can see what's happening and we put them on a leash for frequent walks and visiting their humans friends when they come to our campsite. Seems the dogs are less stressed in the yardpen than any other method we have tried.
