Schag, thanks, I had the underground wire w/shock collar. Can't use it with a hound - mine gets so into chasing rabbits, squirrels or her nose catches a scent and she barrels through, yipes and either keeps going or is afraid to come back in so she wanders off. The Rott respects it..
Kathy, your pup is a hound, right? Gotta love a hound. I too was thinking about putting one of those small livestock wires 6-12" up from the bottom of the fence, because they will get shocked getting even near to a conventional fence. Have to use a fence behind the low lying wire so my hound will be stopped before she even tries to dig and my Rott won't be bouncing off the fence, double expense, LOL.
But still, anyone bought an aluminum fence? Lot of lakes in NY, most of us have ground water very close to the surface. My barn and shed have both been raised onto concrete foundations to prevent water rott. All that stone up in NY, beautiful blue stone and seems a lot of our barns have wooden foundations. Down in MD, people would do all kinds of yard scape with our stones, all sizes too...
So aluminum fences anyone?
