I'd get a fence ASAP, sounds like an accident waiting to happen. Maggie was 2 yrs. when we first moved here. I had no intention of getting a fence since we live on acreage and while we were building Maggie ran off-leash here all the time with no problem. Amazingly, when we moved in she went "deaf", her recall went to zero and would take off every chance she got. Invisible fences were still in their infancy so we installed a wood fence around part of the backyard. Until the fence was installed we tied her. I would like to get one of those wireless fences for the front yard but haven't done anything yet.

I know many people that have an invisible fence and love it, many that don't. It seems that the one's that have the greatest success are the people that have the fences professionally installed and the dog professionally trained.

I've read that a dog or puppy need to weigh at least 10 lbs. to use the invisible fence collar.
