When it's raining, it works even better. The wetter the ground or the animal touching it is, the stronger the shock. Hot wire works great in the right hands. It's a disaster in my boarding facility because people let tumbleweeds, metal, etc touch the tape and it grounds the fence out (makes it useless). Either that, or they let pieces of ribbon lay on the ground without repairing it and that grounds it out, too.
If it were just me, I would be perfectly happy with it. You just need to do an inspection every day. It keeps our 5 drafts out of the streets just fine.
