    In the case of the fence, don't forget that if the dog is stolen or runs away from the pain instead of being deflected by it, the collar will keep shocking him.

    Don't leave him home alone if he has the collar on, especially if you're in one of the vic or nsw areas that has had recent police reports of dogs being stolen for fighting purposes.

    Just wanted to say our dogs were trained to retreat back into the yard... but if they were stolen it only zaps while they are running through it and stops once they get out. I think only a few seconds? So hopefully that one would be the same?

    My sister had the same issue and has put up an electric fence around the border of the yard.
    They've only been near it once and these dogs used to escape daily.

    The reason I mentioned it is because there are some brands that give corrections until the collar is back in the 'safe' space set out by the fence. A reason why they are not recommended for cats or sighthounds; because the animal will keep running frome pain, making the collar and fence both useless and dangerous for the collars that give timed corrections.

    This is going to sound gross, but I used to have a problem with my DP's dog digging under the fence. Before she got too far I started filling the holes with thier poo. They really dont want to keep working on that hole when it is filled with all that yucky. They never dig in that same spot again.
