Yep, that is exactly what is going on.

I guess I am just surprised that you would have that. Around my neighborhood, yes. But I understand. Once trained, then you don't have to worry much. Of course the neighbors dog trained them. She decided she did not want the collar anymore and refused to go outside with it on. They took it off and she went right out. Never leaves the yard either.

I have been training them to stay in the yard and the fence will just be one more added security feature. There's no guarantee that even this will work 100% of the time, but my main concern is them chasing something like a deer, bunny or squirrel out onto the road and getting hit.

We trained our dog with an invisable fence as well. It sure is a great peace of mind. Like you said John, nothing is 100% but we have had ours for over 3 years and our dog has never left the yard. I know without the fence our dog would definitely leave the yard when chasing deer and other critters. Interestingly enough, our cat knows the fence line as well and she will sit just outside the fence line Knowing that the dog can not get to her!

Great idea John, unfortunately that is how I lost my 1 yr old Chocolate a year and a half ago.. He stayed in the yard always, but took off chasing a deer..He was hit by a truck..

John, A gas powered lawn edger works great for cutting the slit for an invisible fencing.

When we trained our dog with a electric fence, we always made sure we picked up the dog and carried (or drove them in the car) them over the fence line (without the collar of course) thus she new that she was safe when with us when crossing the fence. We have a english setter that is lightning fast and chases everything to the edge of the fence line. I agree that this will give you peace of mind. Gregg

We have the invisible fence and love it!! The fence doesn't even have to be on and he will not leave the yard. Great idea John. The peace of mind is great.
