Hi there I have a 14 month old yellow labrador. He recently started jumping to fence to play with the dog next door. I decided to install a visible electric pet fence both at the bottom (prevent digging) and at the top for jumping. He however now is so afraid of being alone out in the yard. The fence has been up for 2 days only. Was it the right thing to do.
Hi Jane, thank you for putting me at ease. Yes it is the alternating current pet unit that was installed. I will take Sami along the perimeter and teach him its still safe to be outside with some rewards. I'm sure that he will soon be his old self again.
You are very welcome. I should also tell you that my 6 year old girl constantly grabs the wire just to feel the shock, so it is not that intense. It is the unexpectedness of the shock that keeps the dog away.
