|Several of our neighbors have them (off the top of my head; a lab, 2 boxers, and a bichon). In all cases the dogs are well trained... beyond just the fence. The 'fences' seem to work quite well. By now, of course, Charks is also trained not to break their boundaries when we walk. Amazing and amusing... the bichon barks and bounces on her side of the boundary; the Shepherd walks by on the sidewalk actively holding her line and ignoring the small dog...
For the bigger dogs, same situation but they more calmly watch as Charka goes by and she's learned/been trained to respect their space. It does really work like an invisible fence... on both sides
I will point out that a physical fence serves a couple purposes. It keeps the dog in (and my feeling is that the invisibles can do this well). It also keeps people and other dogs out. It protects the dog. Invisibles do not do anything on that side of the equation.
