    The trouble with these fences is that if your dog runs through the barrier and gets zapped he's very reluctant to make the return trip, consequently he's trapped on the outside. I've seen it happen many a time.

    Another problem is the sort of fence that uses a control collar on your dog does not keep other dogs out. A friend's Staffy was badly mauled by two dogs who wandered into his yard while one of these fences was in use.

    hey, ive had a little experience with electric fences and was just wondering why were you looking for that in particular? what sort of fences do you currently have? and how is your pup getting out to chase cars in the first place? There are a few things you can try before the electric fences that are much more reliable.

    The only ones i have had experience with is the thunderbird and the ping string, both contain dogs, the ping string was used as a barrier at a gate, its realy just a static charge and the thunderbird was a full 7 string fence on star pickets that held 5 camels and also stopped wild dogs from getting in. I had the 3 kilometer transformer wih the TBird, i think it cost me 300 but that was 14 yrs ago, the clips and white string wernt much, i tried the electric tape as t was cheaper but i didnt find i as effective, good for horses though..

    Dang, I just noticed you said Electronic not electric, I guess you're meaning the invisible fence system?
    I dont have any experience with them, but i know how they work, i think once the dog is trained to the flag barrier( you would usually get little flags as boundary markers) it would be good.

    But it isnt a barrier that stops other roaming dogs from comming into the boundary area etc.
    Also if the dog does manage to ignore the collar sensation or the beeps and gets though it would be reluctant to return back through the barrier.
    Just what I think.

    i use an invisable fence. It works but you need to set 6 weeks aside to train them how it works for it to be effective.

    I have a fence jumper... It is recommended that you use this tyoe of fence with a solid barrier as well...

    i use the Kramar Ultra Containment System, but I have heard the innotek one is better

    rellies have a house on a farm and use it to keep their house dogs near the house. Works great. They also live near a highway so it was important to keep the dogs at home. There aren't many (any?) stray dogs in the area, given sheep farmers can shoot them.
