Question by Bill: What is the best deterrent in keeping a dog from digging holes underneath a wooden fence and escaping?
My dog weighs 20 lbs. I have heard hundreds of things you can do to break him of this bad habit but I can’t afford to spend a lot of money “guinea pigging” things to resolve the problem. If anyone can offer a solution, it would be deeply appreciated. Thanks for your help.

A bag of cement. Doesn’t cost much. Mix it up, pour it along the fence line, dog can’t dig anymore, simple. Goodluck!

Question by w1w1hardy: Splicing another wire into my “invisible fence” wire but I can’t make it work. What’s the problem?
I’ve spliced two different sized wires into my invisible fence wire and neither one is conducting the electricity from the invisible fence. What am I doing wrong?

Best answer:

Answer by XTX
=== you do not have the fence insulated and we need more detail about your Indivisible fence… what is supposed to happen with an electrified wire fence is that the hot wire is not grounded and the insulated hot wire is suspended from those insulated ceramic holders and when the fence is touched by man or dog or other animales then it is grounded and the current is discharged into the intruder …. check for grounded hot wire and it must be on a separate breaker …. not a GFCI …

Question by annie23: How do you keep a small dog form leaveing your yard with out a fence?

Answer by snowy
Living on a lot of ground does not preclude a fence. In fact it would make it even more reasonable to have a fence so you can keep the dog nearby where you can keep an eye on her. If you don’t want a visible fence, they make invisible fences with collars that keep the dog in. However, some dogs learn to run really fast so they don’t have to feel the effects of the collar for long. If you refuse any sort of fence, your only option is a leash, especially with an independent breed like a pug.

Question by Tanga: Should I keep the Invisible Fence collar on all the time?
My dog hates it but my ma says it should stay on all the time, but I don’t think she really knows. We already have another collar anyway!

Answer by gentlegiants
My big guy has an invisible fence. It gives him freedom to explore his yard, chase bugs and dig chipmunk holes! He loves his “big boy collar”. I only use it when he’s going outside in the yard. He has been trained to know where the boundaries are and respects them even without the collar. He sees groundhogs, deer, squirrels, cats, guinnea hens, etc. everyday and will only chase as far as he knows the boundaries are. The invisible fence is a great tool if the dog is properly trained to know the boundaries. He sees his “big boy now” collar and does his Saint Bernard happy dance because it means freedom to him. Train, train, train!

Question by Wendy B: Have you used an invisible fence for your dog? Opinions?
We have been planning to put a fence up around our back yard so the dog can play outside with us. I was at Petsmart yesterday and was looking at those invisible fences. Ultimatly, we could “fence” in a much bigger area for a fraction of the cost. I’d like to know what you think about them and if they work. Our dog is a mix, but she has a lot of shepard in her. She’s just about 6 months old. Any brand or model you like or dislike. We’re just considering our options and any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks

Question by Jynxey: How do you train a dog to stop jumping over a fence?
I have 3 dogs, 1 cat and a turtle and I’m having trouble with my middle dog. It’s a female dog hybrid of a German Pointer and a Dalmatian. And it jumped over a 5’9 foot tall fence and ran in to the street where a car almost hit her. It keeps doing it we tried punishing it but she just keeps doing it! I’m scared that6 the next time a car will run her over! Is there anyway to train a dog to stop jumping over a fence?

Best answer:

Answer by Manal S
you should try to encourage her instead of punishing her and you should try to reward her i used to have a dog one tome and that’s how i got her to me pretty obedient so i hope i helped and i think that would be the answer for your dog!!!!
