If the dog knows that no collar= freedom then see what happens when you put just any old collar on him. He might already think that he has to stay in the yard when he has a collar on.

My thoughts exactly. Maybe you can get one of the invisible fence collars that'* broken or something for cheap, and he'll think it'* the real deal.

As for the training comment, I don't think it will work with all dogs. I could say with 95% certainty it wouldn't work for ours. Bailey is a beagle, and nothing is more important than his nose. I bet you could set up a fence that would put 120 volts through his body and he would still run out of the yard, especially if a squirrel is involved.

Yeah, I've seen it with a shepard. They just walk through those things if they want.

Invisible fence and stuff is simply a band aid for a dog that doesn't mind properly.


I'd disagree 100% with that. We have a 2 year old yellow lab, smart as hell, awsome hunting dog, but a dog'* instinct to go other places will take over. It'* only natural. We have put hundreds of hours into training him and he is very obidient.

We have an invisible fence on our property, I think it was around 3-4 hundred dollars for over half an acre.
