I have read over the last 2 years of posts on fences and gathered all the pros/cons. My concern is keeping my dog in. I only need worry about a rabbit that cuts through my yard.
So far I have had "Pet Safe" and "Pet Stop" out to the house, "Invisible Fence" comes next week.
Aside from their sales pitches is one better than the others? What about the DIY Home Depot and Walmart cheap ones? Not that I want to dig hundreds of feet of wire in and cut 80 feet of driveway, I think there's a few hundred bucks in equipment rental right there.
Puppy Wis need not reply, PW and his few dozen AKA's have been kill filed.
Thanks

Invisable Fence was here, they are the most expensive. The IV training seems better, they use beep only for the first week, then return to set the collar to shock. The others do all training in one day.

The differance seems to be in batteries, and training, the equipment seems very similar.

I would go with IV because of the training. They make two training trips (the initial beep training & the shock training) which, IMO, says more about them than those who do 1-day training (and its not even a whole day from what I've heard...more like an hour).
Battery life/cost is an issue so weight that heavily as well as your ability to purchase extra/additional collars in the future. What are the warranties?
