Experience with electric dog fences?

.

Will those underground electric dog fences work in the wintertime as well, under the snow? Several feet of snow? My dog is very big, any experience with how to keep her in?

    ABERT G IS AN IDIOT KEEPING YOUR DOG FROM GETTING HIT BY A CAR IS ALOT BETTER THAN A FEW MILD SHOCKS.I GOT A SHOCK COLLAR FOR TRAINING AND PUT IT ON MY NECK TO TEST IT.THEY ALSO USE TONES AND THE SHOCK LEVEL CAN BE ADJUSTED.I HAVE SEEN THEM WORK EFECTIVLY BUT ON LONG HAIR DOGS THE COLLAR NEEDS TO BE VERY TIGHT,OR HAVE A SHAVED SPOT FOR THE COLLAR TO WORK.

    I have neighbors that have them and their goldens get out all the time..The fact I don;t like them is it does’nt keep other animals out such as coyotes like we have here

    I’m sure it works cause my sister’s friend used to have 2 horses and when they were out there grazing and running they had electric fences on to keep them from running away! 😛 😀

    mu cousinshave 2 large goldens in chicago and they both are on electric fence. it works great. very simple, and looks great. they never get out. its just the beginner training for the dogs. they just got the 2nd dog. bout a year old and when training she jumped through 2 times. but she learnedquickly.

    I have one and I am not impressed with it. I have 5 big dogs and 3 get out regularly and the others KNOW the instant it goes down from a power outage ect and then they get right out.

    Electric dog fences don’t always work, especially with larger breed dogs. And they aren’t always dependable for smaller dogs, especially if you lose electrical power. If the fence isn’t used properly, the dog may get injured. Instead, you should consider spending your money on behavior training. You will have a happier more responsive, and well behaved dog as a result.

    My neighbor installed an electric fence for his dog. When the dog (Alaskan Husky) wanted to go out of the yard badly enough – like to chase after a squirrel – he’d take the electrical jolt and get out anyway. He was always getting out of the yard. He eventually got the dog trained and he quit taking off.

    Behavior training is the best way to keep a dog from running off. With the right training, daily exercise and supervision, your dog will quit leaving home. Check with your local vet or animal shelter about reliable trainers in your area.
