Our 1yo Golden Retriever Ginger needs to stay in her yard. We live on a culdesac street...only 8 houses...our yards are 1.5 acres or more. Invisible fencing is to expensive so we are thinking the electronic collar for her... Her new thing is chasing after the neighbor's cars. She runs faster and jumps higher than any other dogs we have or have had or know... so fear she may get herself injured or worse.

We have 2 GR's... our 4yo male has Epilepsy...I will check first with his Vet if he can wear one as well. He is recovering from knee surgery and should stay in his yard as well. We also have 85 acres of woods next to our side yard... In CT stone walls are built on the property lines...this was done back in the 17 & 1800's. Our wall has a few breaks in it and our dogs entire the woods from these openings... One day Ginger will figure it out that she can jump it.

So if you are using this type of collar or know someone that is using one and it works great on your/their dog please let me know. Many thanks...
Cheryl

Cheryl.. I wish I had a good answer for you.. we had to put up fencing and then put up even taller fencing for our one dog.. Perhaps if you can start some vines or plant some bushes to limit his view.. Its been my experience dogs mostly leave the yard when tempted by other dogs or wildlife.. or in your case.. cars..
I have no experience with those collars.and am not sure I would trust my dog's life to one.. hopefully one member or more will post some more suggestions for you.. Good luck..
PS.. We have an acre.. so we crossfenced the top part off to limit where they could run and jump..

that kind of collar is only going to work is someone is there watching her to zap. And if your doing this then just go and walk them. I always these collars were cruel to begin with. A regular high enough fence is a much better option.

Hi Poorpigling,
She is crazy...if she hears the neighbors outside she takes off to visit with them and she will not come back when we call her. One of us has to take a leash to get her. Thanks for sharing...good to hear from you...it's been awhile.

Hi Quiltingwolf,
The ones I have been looking at just have a tone...no zapping. You regulate the tone volume...supposedly this stops them in their tracks and they return to your side and yes it is for when we are in the yard with them. If Ginger hears our neighbors she runs off to visit with them. We don't have sidewalks around here...narrow country roads and young drivers do not do the speed limit...we have tried and found it nerve racking...for us and the dogs.

Thanks for sharing...Cheryl

Why not put down an "invisible fence" a foot or two inside the stone wall?

The do it yourself invisible fences are not that expensive actually. The cost is the collar. Google DIY invisible fencing. We considered one to go inside our fence at my last house because we had a couple jumpers. You can just lay them down more or less and the grass will grow over them. You don't really need to dig.

For what it's worth, I don't think just a tone collar is going to stop a determined dog from getting out either. My parents live in a sub and have had invisible fencing for 20 years and still use it several dogs later. It works well but even his well trained dogs run through it if determined.

I'm going to agree on the invisible fence. We have 2 1/2 acres but chose not to fence all of it. We also left it about 30' or so from the street. Not a fan of dogs standing right at the street and barking when people and dogs walk by.

Thank you. I mean this seriously. There is nothing I hate more than walking, with my dog, by a yard where the invisible fence is 12 inches from the curb and that 100-lb attack dog is going nuts. Scares the wits out of me. I wish there was a city ordinance that all invisible fences be at least six feet from the curb.

Sometimes the invisible fence doesn't stop them, either. Depends on the breed. Around here, it's mostly the hounds and Labs that seem willing to go thru them when they get over-excited. Goldens seem to stay put.
