Freakin Dog!

29 posts in this topic

Arkus keeps going through the invisible fence and I have to go find him before he gets hit on the road. I spent 2 hours looking for the furry jerk tonight, I need a solution.

I wonder if anyone knows how to hot rod a shock collar, the highest standard setting just isn't enough. :banghead:

After we realized that our beagle had a keen sense of adventure, my parents sprung for the invisible fence. It worked fine, until Suzie (our dog) realized that if she got a running start, she could get through the fence without being phased. The fence is still buried around the perimeter of our yard, but it hasn't been funtional since 1998 or so.

We found that investing in a stronger, longer leash and tightening her collar just a little bit have been much more effective methods of keeping her in the yard than the fence ever was.

Do you also need one of my retired Plant Floor Robots armed with a Klingon Pain Stick? Here Sweet Suzie, Börger (AKA: PCS) has a little treat for you! Here Girl! :P

That's a very odd name for it, but whatever I guess.

Why not a real fence? Or is it too rural / someone else's property? Very few of the houses in my Mom's subdivision in Portland have fences -- the lots are all stepped and they have that "keystone" wall system.

I know that when I get a dog, either an Australian Shepherd or a Border Collie, I will have a fence. After getting too attached to the animal, I wouldn't want anything to happen to it.

I have my doubts about a fence working. Arkus is an escape artist and has even destroyed several crates rated for a dog like him. I have to chain the door to the current one closed, or he will escape.

Well you could always try my parent's tried and true method. Beat his ass everytime he escapes.

Possible hip dysplasia...probably not a good approach.

Plus, if there's a bitch in heat somewhere in the neighborhood, you really think he'd remember the punishment that well?LOL.

I will never forget, while growing up in LA, in the middle of a major boulevard (3 lanes each directions), 5 dogs were taking turns trying to hump this one dog in heat. Traffic had to stop. Ah, yes, the call of the wild.

I don't have to worry about that... My dog Harley is undeniably gay. He is. Odd, isn't it? :P

When he gets loose, he does like to run about, though. One night, it took forever for me to find him and catch him... and he got sprayed by a skunk. Oh, what a pleasant time. That was months ago and he still smells. Luckilly, the house only smelled for a few weeks. Rascal, on the other hand, seems to be a good dog. Doesn't seem to be as mischievous as Harley, atleast outside of the house. He does have a habit of biting you when you try to correct him for going to bathroom in the house.

Comment 1:

Dogs are horny little f@#ks, period. Our female Australian Shepherd got impregnated a few times but, every once in a while, she would hump your leg. I've never been able to figure that out. (Also, isn't it amazing how a dog will let her owners handle her young wheres, with another animal, that's a recipe for death)

Comment 2:

Tomato juice bath...that's what I've heard

Comment 3:

Damn, in rural PA, do you guys have anything besides skunks, deer...and ocnblu? :lol:

Back on topic, I'm thinking that a cable run might work for Arkus - but it will have to be a damn strong cable.

My German Shepherd has a habit of destroying crates as well (I just reinforced the new crate door I bought!). We have the Invisible Fence too, which seems to work well....though luckily when she gets zapped, she retreats and doesn't test the boundary much! When I had mine installed, they could vary the field size emitted around the buried wire by adjusting the fence transmitter unit. Then they could increase the collar settings. Then the third thing they could do was turn off the 30 sec delay so if the dog entered the field they'd immediately get zapped instead of just the collar tone going off to signal them to retreat. With the delay enabled, if the dog runs fast enough at the fence, it can beat the shock. I think I have the 700 series, but there's a newer 800 series that might be better. Also, they do have a training collar system with a remote now as well.

My dog hated the crate we got for her, and she chewed a hole through it big enough to get out of!
