Default new dog fences

People have been telling me about a new kind of electronic dog fence that does not require you to bury a wire. From what I am hearing it must use radio frequencies or something like that. Has anyone heard anything good/bad about these and possibly reccomend a good braind. This would be great for my two dogs since they always seem to wonder too far when I let them off of their leashes in our yard.

Thanks,

Mike

The one I have been looking at on Ebay is the "Petsafe JF-300 Wireless Pet Fence." Has anyone heard anything good about these?

nope i don't like invisible fences - they fail way too many times and in way too many ways. A "real" fence is a lot more reliable

My neighbors dogs break through the electronic fence. They also sometimes fail to work because of weather conditions and the battery in the collar. I also don't trust other stray dogs coming onto my property since it only tries to prevent your dog from leaving your property. I think a regular fence is a better idea.

Don't waste your money on an electric fence of any kind. The only dog I've ever seen it work on was a Lhasa Apso. If your dog sees something that it really wants, it'll be gone in an instant.
