my son has 3 dogs and one collar and I to have seen in past one blast and they are free,but the new technology seems to have stopped this he started with flags and a good jolt then reduced the power,it has a warning beeper thats tells the dog to stop or get blasted. and it works great,so great he only puts the collars ononce a week to remind them.
also he planted a flower garden 2 years after the fence and he placed flags in the garden and the dogs wouldnt go near the flags.
as for dogs comming on to his property he has a chow/sheppard mix who lives to hunt ground hog so unless it is a bad @ss dog.charging no problem

I don't have a problem with ecollars and bark collars but I do with these fences. Personally, I just spent almost $5k to put up a 6 foot privacy fence around my yard and the dogs are still monitored when they are out.

Not to metion that which has already been said but a few years ago in Charlotte a kid wandered into one of these invisibily fenced yards in a nice neighborhood and was mauled. Our neighbors had one and the dog ran through it all the time - more fun to take the hit and run free than to mope around the yard.

Who's to say other dogs won't come around? Or wild life? Leaving dogs out in them unsupervised is irresponsible. I'd like one as a secondary barrier, as I have 3 dogs that can jump our 6 and a half foot fence. But to leave a dog that's not voice trained in a fence like that with no barrier fence as well? Just looking for trouble.
