I use a PETSAFE invisible fence. $300 for the kit and another box of wire and flags was steep if you ask me but my girl bought it so I couldn't argue. It works great on both dogs, the black lab and the husky. Both needed to have the longer prongs put on the collars and the maximum "correction" level turned on before they cared about staying in the boundaries. Ralph ran through the fence a few times until he tried it in the snow. water is an excellent conductor and he got knocked on his ass. Now you can't drag either one of them within 10 feet of the invisible fence line. It doesn't matter if there is a stray dog in the road snacking on a pile of free beef jerky, they won't cross the line no matter what. It's real nice with the invisible fence, in the morning I just open the door and they run out. Previously they would run out and over the neighbor's house, onto the school bus, into the forest... Petsafe stands behind their products too, I had a shock collar I was teaching them not to jump on people with and it broke so they sent me another one free. I dropped the transmitter from the free one and ran it over with the lawn mower, I called them again to ask where I could buy just the transmitter and they sent me a new one - no charge! That is unbelievable in today's world.

Yes those under ground fences work great. I have a Doberman and he does not cross the lines. It was simple enough to install and the training was rather easy too. It was a lot cheaper than a conventional fence and "looks" much better as well. I had a Collie as well (she passed away last year) and she needed the pointy prongs on her collar. It was money well spent.
I can also say that most people give my property a wide berth as they don't know that the fence is there............they hear the dog and then see him and tend not to linger around for too long :D

I have a sign that says "WARNING! PROPERTY PROTECTED BY GUARD DOG" with a picture of a wolf baring his teeth. It is nailed to the tree next to Ralph's dog house and his old broken run is still there. So people look at the sign, look at the broken chain, then see Ralph off the leash. I don't think that he would bite anyone unless they really freaked him out but it's a great deterrent to salespeople. I had one that said "trespassers will be used for dentistry practice" with misspellings.

My Rotties .....well Rottie (Jager) on the right and a Pitwieller mix (Titan) and my Bengal cats. You'll notice Radio collars on the Bengals, yes they make small ones for cats too, the under ground fence from Petsafe is worth every penny.

Wow, Tank sure is a great looking dog. I had a Red Dobie once back in early 90's.....dumbest animal I've ever owned, turned up dead in the yard for some unknown reason, house was ransacked the very next day, wasn't hard to figure out the dog was poisoned.

We got Kahn shortly after, never had a successful breakin in the 13 yrs he was on watch. Sadly we lost him last year, we still miss him.

Haven't had a dog in while but the last one was a gem, we took her camping with us all the time. No fence required because she'd never leave. :D Very protective but also very friendly, didn't bark except when she should be barking. Even my one friend who really hates dogs in general didn't mind her because she never bothered him.

Only one dog at the moment. Got her for free from a landscaping material supplier. Lucky has MegaEsophagus which means she can't eat normally without the food getting stuck halfway down and her regurgitating it. Started up immediately after she was spayed. Almost lost her due to mis-diagnosis and un-necessary surgery. Most expensive free dog I ever had! Vet suggested exploratory surgery and putting her down on the table if nothing was found. Before that was done, I was fortunate to find a yahoo users group of people with MegaE dogs that suggested this "feeding chair" which worked immediately. We put her canned food in a blender, add water until its a thin milkshake consistency and give her a few bowls while she is sitting up in this chair, gravity gets it to her stomach and no more regurg'ing.

Pilot wondered if dog would remember him after 3 months apart. Looks like this dog is his best friend.
