She’s ten weeks old with a zest for exploration. I’m in my 70’s and my speed limit is about ½ mph. She has puppy ADHD. I have focus and know my boundaries.
My yard boundaries are currently delineated by Invisible Fence which has served me and my dogs well over the past 13 years.
But now there’s Leia, a puppy who is starting to widen her chosen territory and turning a deaf ear to my calls. After all, what lies in the area of the vast unknown? Other dogs? Food? Friendly people? Downed birdhouses with a mysterious scent? Strange noises that need to be investigated? Wood piles to climb?
The issue now is safe containment.
When I called Invisible Fence, they advised me that they would not be able initiate fence training with Leia until she is four to five months old.
Two facts: 1. Leia will be in the next county by then 2. I am no longer able to run through the neighborhood after an errant puppy.
Reality is staring me in the face; at my age it is time for me to install a physical fence . . . sooner than later. So I’ve started my search for reputable fence companies in the area, asking for recommendations, and reading customer reviews. Once I’ve isolated 2-3 companies, then I will contact them for estimates and advice on the best type of fencing for my needs.
