    Going to put up an electric fence tomorrow. With three wires spaced 8-10 inches apart.

    For people with an electric fence, would this not be enough to keep dogs away from the coop? I still want to make my coop stronger, just lost a flock, but if the dog can't get to the coop through the fence, wouldn't it be ok?

    Part of that depends on how low the lowest wire is. You don't want the dog to just go under the wire. It also depends if you have a power failure or not.
