We've always lived in town, but we just recently purchased a 5 acre, more rural, property. We would love to make most of the property accessible to her and are thinking that the buried electric fence/collar might be the way to go. I would love to hear your experience with how well it actually works, if you recommend professional installation, how to make sure it's maintained correctly, etc. Also, this may sound silly, but she has the typical Collie "mane" around her neck, so I'm not sure she'd even feel the electric pulse through all that fur?
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
