I don't walk my dogs in the neighborhood for that reason. I have a large fenced in back yard that they can play and run around in.

In our case we were lucky, it's how we met Dexter's best friend Lucy. The other dog in the neighbourhood is a vicious little toy poodle mix that always runs around free.He was ok with Dex until his owner invited me in and he went a little crazy. He tries to go all tough guy when I've got my back turned, but as soon as I turn around and yell at him he's long gone running the other way. There are also two GSD who are a little vicious but they've got an invisible fence.

We've had our invisible fence since 2004 and our previous golden did great on it and we had very few incidents with other dogs in our yard. We'd see one here or there when he was in the house, but very rarely when he was out there. Whether Charlie will take to it who knows. Keeping other dogs out is my biggest annoyance about the electric fence! I think I'll make sure his first walks are with someone else as handling different situations may be easier with another adult to help out.

We're on a dead end street, so just to get off of our street is an issue sometimes but I'm going to keep the dog wardens number handy! All this talk about that reminded me to register our puppy with the county, which was surprisingly cheap and easy - only $7 for puppy tags because he's less than 4 months now.

Yes, ohiomom ,i would be carefull with ,the other dogs ,getting to your little guy, we have the invisable fence , but no dogs run free right here, but if they did, that would be a problem.
