    I would think it may short out quicker. Pick up the plastic conductors made for that fencing.

    i don’t think that is a good idea cause it might electrify your entire fence….that could be dangerous for you and anyone that goes near your fence…if its high enough voltage then it might even seriously injure or kill your dog…

    i would suggest doggy day care when your working…and/or……a kennel that has roof

    I’ve used mine on the fence for years. It works great. You still need to do the training as if the fence were underground. The wire is interwoven through the fence at about 18" off of the ground. the easiest part is that you can see obvious breaks in the wire making repair very easy.

    You need a dog trainer not an electric or shock fence. Your just masking the problem not training her.

    it’ll be fine, the cord is woven through my fence too

    So far, [chrombut] is the only one who knows what an electric fence is. The rest are "townies"!

    ◙ An electric fence is what dairy farmers and beef farmers use. It consists of an exciter/interrupter or "shock" unit with two clamps. One is wired to a metal peg in the ground, the other to a set of horizontal wires that go from insulated standard to insulated standard.
    It requires NO attachments to the livestock.
    When an animal standing on the ground touches one of those horizontal wires, very-high-voltage very-low-amperage pulses pass from the wire to the ground, shocking the critter they pass through. It’s like you, with a nail file in each hand then pushing each nail file into a different slot in an electric socket, except that an electric fence is set to be non-lethal under normal circumstances.
    Farm dogs leap over them, no sweat. Toddlers attempting to crawl between the wires can die – the first shock causes them to fall belly-down onto a wire, and subsequent shocks prevent the toddler from climbing through, until eventually its own weight pressing on its diaphragm suffocates it.
    They are usually illegal in urban areas – the wires broadcast a constant "click click click" picked up by every phone within range.
    Weaving one through a mesh fence would result in the exciter unit burning out (or activating the protecting fuse so that the current no longer passes through the exciter into the wires) – the current would be permanently shorting through the bottom of the mesh fence.

    ◙ What CAN be woven is the cable version of an "invisible fence", a totally useless device that should be banned. There is a no-cable version that’s even more useless.
    Both require your pooch to wear a special collar with a "radio receiver" and a shock unit built in.
    • The shock unit’s 2 prongs have to constantly dig into the dog’s neck. I hate stiff labels on the collars of my shirts – how about you? I will NOT inflict those prongs on my dogs except in the rare situation where the original version of shock collars – one with a hand-activated control – is justified, and the special collar worn ONLY while the pooch is being aversion-trained.
    In addition to that constant digging into the neck, the demerits of "invisible fences" are such that they appeal to only cheapskates who don’t actually care about their pooches. Top of the list of problems are:
    • They do NOT keep stray dogs and stray brats OUT. Both categories can attack your pet. Stray pooches also leave viruses when they piddle/poo where your pet will walk.
    • They give NO mental security to scared-of-dogs people who HAVE to walk past your property.
    • You DO have to train the pooch what the buzz means.
    • Given a strong stimulus – such as a rival pooch running away, or a bit.ch-on-heat passing by, a strong-minded pooch will run right through the "pain barrier" before it receives the shock. But afterwards it is NOT running, and so the buzz-&-shock deter it from RETURNING to its property. It is thus trapped "out there" where the traffic is.
    • And the collar works ONLY when (a) its batteries are charged up and (b) there is power to the transmitter.

    Those "fences" don’t need to be "weaved" into anything. But COULD be woven into, or buried alongside, a wire boundary fence, provided that the "shock distance" leaves enough room for the pooch to exercise itself. Just keep in mind that if your pet can at present leap OUT over such a low fence, coyotes and stray dogs can leap IN over it – and THEY won’t be affected by the shock collar they are NOT wearing.

    The only effective fence is a PHYSICAL fence like the one in the song: "So high, you can’t get over it;
    So low, you can’t get under it;
    So wide, you can’t get around it
    — Oh rocka my soul!"
    Your pet deserves a fence that will protect her from enemy invaders, as well as prevent her from escaping.

    She should NOT be left unsupervised in your yard.
    When I’m absent, my dogs are either in my house, or in their individual security pens where they can experience the constantly changing scents & sounds of the environment, can sunbathe or can go into their raised sleeping box. Your pet’s run needs to be roofed, both to keep rain off her and prevent her climbing out. For most dogs, hurricane mesh is an adequate enclosure, but if your pet likes using her teeth on obstacles you may need to use welded reinforcing steel.

    There was a writer-politician called William Pitt, and some girls get heartsick over that Brad Pitt chap, but there is no pooch called a "pitt".
    You are probably referring to a PBT, one of the breeds developed in the barbaric long ago by crossing Bulldogs with various Terriers, to produce hard-to-tip-over fast-reflexed animal-aggressive pooches that could be dropped into a pit so that "gentlemen" could bet on how long it would take the pooch to kill the sackful of rats dropped in with it, or which of two such pooches dropped into a pit would survive attempting to dominate the other.
