    Hello. I've just joined.

    We're lucky to live in a very rural position where we've kept dogs & other animals for over 30 years but would still welcome any advise. Monty, our kelpie x border collie had epilepsy for the last 8 of his 11 years. With failing sight & hearing, we had him put down 2 months ago. Very hard. We collect our border collie pup in 3 weeks.

    Previously, with training, we've not had a significant problem with our dogs wandering but, even here, traffic is increasing. Conventional fencing would be a major problem so we're considering an electronic fence. Any experiences? I tried searching "electronic fence" here but found nothing.

    Hello, welcome..
    I dont know if you mean the invisible electric fencing thats buried below the soil, but in case you do my friends collie worked out very quickly that you can jump over it and still escape:D Of course its going to be lots easier as you're having a pup and it'll be exactly what you make it..
    Look forward to photos
