Radio wave dog collar?

Has anyone used the electronic pet containment system? No buried wire, just radio wave which is plugged in in the house and forms a circular safe zone around your house.

If so, do you recommend it?

I agree completely with Dave. Besides the fact that they cause all sorts of aggression problems, they are also useless in terms of keeping you dog safe from other animals entering their yard. (you can't really call it a "safe zone", because there is no safety in it for the dog) That's a bad enough problem for a big dog that has a chance of fighting back. For our little ones, it can easily be deadly.

We recently fenced our back yard, and Kodi is STILL not allowed out unsupervised. Not because he'd leave the yard even before it was fenced… he has been extremely well-trained, and wouldn't. But he is not safe from other roaming animals.

:-( How can our pup be outside with the kids without being on a leash? Seems like she might not be able to.

build a fence or wait until she is reliably trained to stay in your boundaries you set. Nothing wrong with a long leash for now.

I thought this thread would be about an RFID chip so one could locate the dog if it wandered off.

Some say that with the E collar, the smart dogs learn that the 'pain' only lasts for a few moments, so they just keep running.
