As to the electric fence, my neighbor down the street has the most irresistible little yorkie who seems too small for that collar, but that's what they use. I didn't know they had it, and walked by one day to see him sitting at the gate in their driveway. I talked to him, and he walked right through the gap, so I thought he was loose. He didn't come all the way down the driveway, but I picked him up and walked him to their front door. That's when they told me about the electric fence, and I think I walked him right through the boundary, but maybe because I was holding him at chest level, he didn't get the shock.
Couldn't someone just come along and pick him up that way? It seems like a good idea for a larger dog, but I'd be nervous relying on that system with small dogs in my neighborhood, anyway.
