Invisible fencing

Just wondering what brands people are using and what are the pros and cons of each brand? Also, wondering the cost of each brand? Did you put the system in yourself or did you have the company? Thanks for all the help.

kooba, I have a pet safe brand myself and have had no issues at all. My buddy and dad both have the Sportdog and think its the best ever. I have to agree. It has a collar with variable intensity and a nice control unit which show if the signal isn't working. I believe you can buy the Petsafe for around $100+ and the Sportdog for $199.

My friend made a great pull behind machine for installing fences. It works behind garden tractors or atv's. It cuts the ground, installs the line at the proper depth, and closes it up right behind. Slick as a whistle... I installed six fences for friends and family last year.

My parents have a petsafe as well. It works great! They haven't had any problems with it as of yet and the dogs love being outside all day!

this homemade thing is going to remain under wraps. It has a disk, a curved chisel-like blade, a wire tube, spool holder, weight hanger, etc. Its solid and has been used to install roughly 25 fences over the last couple years. Other than that, I think my friend would like to keep it on a need-to-know basis.

I have a PetSafe with an Extra Stubborn Dog Receiver that we don't use anymore. Good up to 5 acres I think? Worked great for us with a pair of labs. (90lbs & 119lbs)

      There is spots in the parking lot for roughly 7 vehicles with trailers. When that's full, you can park on the side of the road leading up to the access (I don't know if it's legal but have never seen tickets given out nor have I received one). The access is fairly steep but  in good shape. A 16ft will go up/down and launch no problem. 20'+ fish houses can make it up and down.    The access on the south side (past the Bear trap) on Highway 71 has much more parking and is a flat landing with 2 docks.   Water clarity is good. Fishing is mediocre.

      Basskisser, You will love the lake. Compared to other sizeable lakes in MN the traffic is much lower.  Plus Vermilion has so much shoreline with great bays everywhere.  I always have a rod rigged with a Rapala DT6 in red crawdad color and another set up with a fintech jig and tube in either a crawdad brown or green pumpkin.  The Rap works great if you want to cover water and just bounce it down a rocky shoreline.  The tube is perfect for throwing under docks or submerged rocks that your sonar points out.  Good luck and have fun.  There is some great bass fishing on Vermilion.

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.
