|I'm not a huge fan of electric fences, but it's what we have and we live on a busy road. My first dog had no problem with it and respects the boundaries fantastically.
The problem is with Leela... She is only 8 months old, weighs 75 pounds and is a lab mix. She has no desire to leave the yard. She never tries to actually go through the fence for things that are outside. She will wonder around the yard and end up in the zapping zone, and just stand there for over a minute. She will see a neighbor that she loves and she will try to get closer to his house by standing in the zap zone.
The zaps don't bother her at all. When she is getting zapped she will still wag her tail or sit down. She will eventually start to itch her side because it seems to "annoy" her. The pet fence dealer has turned up the collar to the highest it goes, and I don't want to get the super powerful one that he recommended because she is still so young.
Please help me with ideas!!!
Both my dogs get along great and it's not because she doesn't want to be with my other dog.
