Much to the the chagrin of many members of our community, it is the containment collar for the Original Invisible Fence containment system.

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals partnered with the Original Invisible Fence to influence the training and educational materials of the company. One of ASPCA's animal behaviorists reviewed the materials for accuracy to ensure the training that was recommended was both effective and humane. The ASPCA's policy statement is as follows:

"Our policy states that, in the event a dog cannot be contained with a physical fence, we consider electronic containment acceptable."


Through postive based training, Gibbs has learned to respect the boundary surrounding our house. He enjoys full use of our yard, and keeps within a foot of the boundary (the new system doesn't require a 5 foot zone). The correction level of the collar is set far below the containment level. The few times Gibbs actually touched the boundry line, the beep sounded, the collar tingled and he immediately retreated withOUT a whimper, cry, bark, snarl, moan or anything else.

We have never left him unattended in the yard and usually have him on a loose leash. We will sometimes drop the leash when we play, when a neighbor comes over to talk or when we feel he just wants to meander and explore the yard by himself (as we watch). When his puppy buddy Nico or our next door neighbor's little girl comes over to play, he waits patiently with his tail waging in excitement until they cross over into our yard.

My long winded reply is in anticipation of the disapproval of all who feel the Original Invisible Fence is cruel to dogs, and that my use of it speaks my quality as a dog loving owner.

John
