So I think it is time to consider an electric dog fence. I am interested in any experiences or suggestions you all have.
The dog is small (approximately 8 lbs) so I am looking at the systems with the collars designed for smaller dogs. The perimeter I intend to protect is around 900'. It looks like all of the kits come with 500' and I will have to add to that. We are on a wooded lot and much of that path is against the tree line. I do not plan to bury that part. I do have an area that will have to run across an open grassy area and I definitely want to bury. I did not measure but guess it is around 120'. Does anyone have any secrets for burying that run? I was thinking of Kenny's solution for buried wire https://picasaweb.google.com/1139665...55812037/Wire#. In this case, though, I only want to be a couple inches below the surface. Is there any other methods you all have done?
Kenny- did you buy that subsoiler locally or is that something you made? I don't have the means to fabricate much at my place.
I also need to cross a base coat asphalt drive (12' wide). I have a friend who just left the wire on top and has been driving on it for over a year now. Thoughts?
The other question is brand. Do any of you have a small dog pet fence? If so, please share you experience with the product.
As always, I look forward to reading your thoughts.
