I am curious who here uses invisible fencing with there animals and how well does it work at keeping your animals contained?

I am thinking about purchasing an invisible fencing system to use with my German Shepherd. She will only be using the invisible fencing when I am outside with her in the yard. Just curious as to how well they work.

I have a friend who has one & is sorry now. See, her dog can't get out, however other animals can get in. Her puppy got attacked that way as it had no where to run without getting zapped.

The electronic collars don't always work consistantly with thick-furred dogs - a friend had to keep her Aussie's neck trimmed....

On the other hand, my sis-in-law has one for her Bichon, and says he's so used to staying in the yard now, that he doesn't even need the collar.

Some dogs do very well with it - and others learn that it only hurts for a moment when they cross the line at full speed....LOL!

Personally, I'm still partial to a fenced yard - to keep others out!

My son has one in Lawrenceville, GA, and his mixed breed male dog absolutely will not cross the line. Gary worked with him like they tell you to so the dog gets acquainted with the boundaries. My neighbor installed one 4' into her yard, inside a chain link fence, to keep her large mixed breed from getting close enough to jump the fence and it works. She did not work with the dog at all, just put the collar on. Yes, there is a chance of other dogs coming into your yard if your area does not have an effective leash law - you will just have to evaluate that risk based on your circumstances but the fences do work.


See ya' down the road!

My next-door neighbor has one for her beagle. It works well enough, but she is fortunate to not have had an issues with raccoons or foxes (both of with traverse our area regularly) or other dogs. I think that is probably going to be the most common worry point.

I used to keep my camper at a friends house who had one with a crazy lab, whenever I would pick my camper up he would follow me out. I would have to stop, take BOTH Collers off, tie him up then leave.

I don't fully trust the invisible fencing which is why I would never ever leave her outside by herself. I would be too nervous that she could run off if something were to tempt her. She has never tried to run off before but I don't want to take the chance her recall is good but you never know.

I thought this would be a nice alternative rather then being on a lead, when I am able to be outside with her. I typically spend alot of time during the summer months in my yard working and would like for her to be able to run around the yard with me. I'm not too worried about any of the nieghborhood dogs because of the leash laws that we have the majority of people follow them, for the ones who don't the dogs will simply be chased out of my yard.

If I were to put up a tradional fence it would be impossible for me to back the TT into the yard so this is the only option we have to work with besides using the lead with her.

We have it, but don't use it now. Katie Mae figured out a place to get out, and I guess she gritted her teeth and flew through it.

With Broadway, she was so afraid of it she didn't even want to leave the house. She got depressed, and we didn't like the effect it had on her. So we don't even use it now.

$800, down the drain.

My neighbor has it around his property to contain his two big boxers. If they get a head of steam, they will roll right over that line without a thought but for the most part they stay within the perimeter.
My stepson installs Dog-Guard fencing and he emphasizes what pdukey stated "bottom line is training, training and more training."
