    Default Dog Containment ????

    Would appreciate any feed back on the various dog containment systems Google found ....... electric fences, radio controlled all sorts etc

    We occasionally look after the daughters Husky and she is into digging and generally wrecking gardens and showing our normally fairly well behaved brown dog from the pound what great fun this is

    She is a lovely dog BUT !

    We have had dogs here for years and had no particular problems with destroyed plants till this Huskey came along

    HELP !


    Many thanks

    If you mean to contain her just within your own already fenced yard to keep her off stuff, the collar and 'posts' arpund to stop her going to places you do not want will do it, that is if her thik coat does not stop the thing working never have used one so do not know about that,
    Do know those systems that keep your dog on your otherwise unfenced propery are not all good, your dog may not leave but others will come in, this can lead to dog fights

    My sister was having trouble with her dogs attacking the garden, one would dig and the other would eat everything including chillies. They put up a chicken wire fence just above knee height with a seperate "hot" wire booby trapped with party poppers

    I have a husky, and yes she is a digger also, we have a 6f fence around our property as she is also a great jumper, we found dog fence from the hardware store great, she got through the chicken wire, not strong enough lol!!!!! Good luck

    Our dog destroys plants too. If there is a new plant in the yard she will destroy it, if it has been there for ages or if it springs up from seed she doesn't have a problem with them.

    Is the husky bored? Digging is often a sign of boredom, does she dig when she is alone or is it a constant thing?

    my husky just loves to dig, she digs on the beach when we walk, she digs like crazy when she is have her funny five minutes lol!!!!! But in saying that I am not bothered by it, probably because I am not overly concerned what my garden looks like haha!

    The containment systems are ok for some dogs - i have seen dogs walk right through them, and know a couple who's batterys went flat... thankfully the dogs came home.

    I would never use one, i would get a ping string up and electrify the fence, just watch the laws, i know the aRSePCA seized some dogs for being in an electric fence a few years ago.

    May I ask why did you get a Husky in a first place?

    Huskies are active working dogs and need to run, run, run. It is in their genes and you can do absolutely nothing about it. Confiding it in a small place without giving it an option to run and do what huskies need and love to do is torture. Zapping it with an e-collar or electric fence because it's "naughty" and shows signs of frustration and boredom even more so.
