Underground Fence for Dog

Recommended Posts

Brade4

I live on a farm and have a dog who normally doesn't run, but if someone happens to be walking by on the road he will run out to them and continue to follow them. Is there anything I can do as far as fence goes instead of burying a wire around 5 plus acres? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

They make wireless systems but I believe only havahartwireless makes one that goes over 5 acres but They don't have too good of reviews. Perimeter technologies seems to make a decent one for 2.5 acres. D.E systems border patrol has a  GPS one for up to 400 acres with a little better reviews than havanhart wireless. 

 

Or You could do a wired fence just along the road and up the sides a little bit in a U shape since you are only worried about the dog going after people on the road. I would think that would work unless you think your dog would run up the property line and around and back down to the road.

That might be an option but doesn't the fence need to connect on both ends for it to work?

It would be something like that but you would extend the boundary wire up in a U while this picture the guy has a fence

It seems you can put grounding rods at the end and not a have a closed loop system but I think you have to have a high powered transmitter and they are not as reliable.

 

I guess it depends how big the U is going to be it might not be worth it since like the first picture it would be a double loop so you would be digging two trenches side by side almost be worth it to just trench the whole yard one loop

I would do some research on what brand you are thinking and give them a call and see what they think.

I tried two different brands of wireless and found them very inconsistent. Sometimes the warning would go off in one location and the next time the dogs could go an additional 20' or more. Then when they got shocked they had to run back 20' before it stopped. It made it next to impossible to train the dogs.

We finally bought a buried wire system which works great. The dogs know exactly how far they can go. It helps to bury the wire next to something the dogs can key off. I have two sides buried just before the tree line and another side at the brink of a hill. If you just bury it in the middle of a field, it will be more difficult for the dogs to know their boundary.

We fenced about three acres and it really wasn't that much work.

I know people use boundary flags too for places that are just open

      Have to strongly disagree Rick. In fact, I can't think of a company that doesn't add scent in their products, either during the production, or at least adding a scented oil before packaging, usally with actual plastic baits.  I think there needs to be clarity in "plastic". I am a believer in using more of the actually formulated with fish food. Examples, Impulse, Powerbait, and TriggerX, which have been proven to catch more fish, side by side, to plain "plastic". Been adding liquid scent to spoons, rip baits and even live minnows, to help intice more bites for years. Scent works.  Hand soap during the cold water periods is just as important to hide human scent. Cold water is very dense, and holds scent, both good and bad 😉

      Has anyone been out lately? Just curious how the fishing has been and how much ice is out there? I’ve been out a couple times so far on a smaller lake near by vermilion. I had 5 to 7 inches consistently everywhere I checked. 
    • Rick
      I've used both and haven't seen a significant advantage for either. So for ice fishing with plastics it's usually not scented.   Just trying to hold the rod still in your hand can give the plastic enough realism/movement to cause a curious fish to inhale it.

      On the south end...  The big lake is ice covered with scattered areas of open water.  We have a nice start to making ice so when colder weather hits, things will get locked up fairly quickly.  Mother Nature gave us a cold blast to get things started but with milder temps this week, things are on hold.  There is some spearing taking place for pike this week on back bays such as Bostic Bay and Zippel Bay.  Resorts have spear houses available.  Regardless of where you fish, work through a resort for safety. On the Rainy River...   Most areas of the river are covered with a thin layer of ice with some areas of open water.  There is no traffic on the river at this time while ice is forming.  Extra caution is always needed with current and this year the current is stronger than most years.  Back bays of the river are also iced up. Up at the NW Angle...  Ice is forming nicely throughout the Angle.  Locals have been out monitoring ice conditions and progress is being made, but no ice travel is recommended yet.  NW Angle resorts will communicate when ice fishing begins.

      You guys...  🙄 This is like the old joke: Ole went down to the public swmming beach at the local fishing hole.  He hoped to impress Lena and all her fine lady friends by wearing his tight swim trunks that showed off his "manliness."   Lars politely warned Ole that he didn't exactly have much to show off; Lars recommended perhaps Ole should tuck a potato into his Speedo.  Ole did.  After strutting around, he was extremely disappointed:  Lena and her lady-friends only point and laugh/giggle/snort and roll their eyes... Ole asked Lars, "what's the deal?"  Lars told Ole, "next time, try tucking the potato in the front."   Sorry to break it to you fellas, but a deer's anatomy isn't like ours.  The ladies keep their mammaries in a different location, ya understand...

      Odd, because on another thread subject you said this? 😏   What Kind Of Bird Is This??? Clavilux replied to Dan85's topic in MN Pheasant Hunting-Grouse-Dove-Partridge Tough to figure out what exactly it is. Looking forward to see the opinions of others.
