We have the buried fence for our dog. We trained her on it at about 4 mos old and she was great-only got out once or twice that first year and that was it. BUT this year at around 4.5 yrs old, she suddenly went over the boundary-probably was chasing a critter of some kind. We had no idea she would do it-she had never even tried before other than the couple of times at the very beginning. She got hit by a car on the highway and thankfully, is fine now, but it was scary. She stayed at the vet for about 4 days and at first, we weren't sure if she would live. Now she is confined to the part of the yard with a regular fence and goes out (still with the radio collar on) only if we're right there to keep an eye on her. Luckily we have a big fenced yard but she gets bored because she used to have 10 acres to explore in. Now it might be about half an acre.

The thing I don't like about the wireless and radio fences it that they don't keep other dogs OUT of your dog's area. We have big dogs and just didn't want to deal with someone else's dog deciding to be bulletproof and picking a fight with one of ours. To be on the safe side, we fenced 2 acres for our 12 dogs conventionally.

That's part of why we used non-climb wire fence around our whole yard - both to keep our dogs in (I think I had mentioned earlier that we use both a conventional fence and a wireless radio fence, the radio fence keeps her from digging under the conventional fence) and other dogs/skunks/foxes/(am I evil if I mention neighbour children? ) OUT!

Also... TWELVE dogs? And I thought we had a lot of pets!

Yep, 12. A boxer, german sheperd, german sheperd mix, puggle, 4 minature dachshunds and 4 pit bulls. They have plenty of room to run and love their yard. One of the pits is my service dog as well.

Where we live, people tend to dump dogs and cats, so we have a zoo around here.

Good on ya for taking them in! We don't have a lot of dogs dumped here but cats are a real problem. All three of our cats were left at my husband's farm... city people seem to think that farm cats are happy cats. If the machinery and diseases don't kill them, the feral cats do... if we took in all of them, we'd need a bigger house!
