ETA: I guess mainly what I am looking for is feedback on the invisible fence. My main fear is that Bessy will bust out of it. Two Dogs: Andy: Lab/Border Collie Mix Bessy: Beagle/Bassett hound Mix Both spayed/Neutered I am trying to decide if I should put up a dog pen (gives the dogs 50 x 80 area) or do the invisible fence (gives the dogs about ½ Acre). Pros for the regular fence: Bessy and Andy would be contained during the day only, Andy would be able to be out at night. (actually the only reason I keeping Andy up is because Bessy can't run and I don't feel like it is fair to her. Andy is used to being either in a fence or out and about. I can visually see the containment. I would not have to train the dogs. Cons for the regular fence: It would be a much smaller area More expensive to install I couldnt do this myself Can't take it with me. Not a big deal but I would have to leave the house to put them in their pen. Pros for the Underground fence: Lots of space to run (still can't go to the woods, which that's where Bessy wants to go) Easier on me to let them out. Much Cheaper than a regular fence -- And actually I could install it myself. Can take it with me when I leave Cons: have to train the dogs I can't see the containment I am afraid Bessy will bust through -- she is so determined to go hunt. Andy has never been on a leash, so I will have to start at square one with him. He doesn't need to be contained, but I am afraid that if he runs in and out of the fence area, it will tempt Bessy more and she would be more determined to leave. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
