Electric fence

Category: my garden | Posted: Sun Apr 04, 2010 1:08 pm

Oh yes, for the bargain, value packed investemnt price of a mere $250 all inclusive, my garden is now dog dig proof. No more will I have to replant everything 4 times over with a mortality rate of 1 in 3, no more will I have to line my garden beds with chicken wire and big pegs, no more will the enthusiastic not- so- little puppy be racked with pangs of doggie guilt post offence and no longer will I suffer fits of temporary dogocidal rage and frustration (and no longer will the sounds of being cursing full volume echo across the valley- sharing is caring)....oh, the sense of relief. I'm sorry for the shock Noodle but we are confident that stimulus conditioning will be a quickly learned and minimally painful process. It is a portable, battery run affair (I have it hooked up to a solar panel and car battery)so I can move it around the yard as plants establish

I'm sure Noodle will be a quick learner. So glad you found a solution to your problem Brombear. Now let's hope all your plants will grow well for you.

I found that electric fences are very effective with my dog. Last week she got zapped by the electric fence my neighbors have to keep their horses in. She won't even go on that side of the yard anymore! LOL
Hopefully Noodle learns that lesson quickly too :)

Awww, poor puppy. :( But I guess Noodle will be a happier puppy when the scolding stops. :D

yes, one zap, hopefully not too painful, poor noods, and she appears to have learnt. i feel such a sense of release. I guess a bonus is that she got the stern "no" command immediately preceding the zap event, so hopefully this word carries a bit more weight in all situations. Doesn't seem to be stressed out though so is all good as she is a sweetie of a beastie
