In Reply to: ELECTRONIC FENCE
: I have rescued a 5 year old female JRT. Unfortunately she is able to squeeze through my wrought iron fence. Will electronic fencing be effective in keeping her in the yard? Any other ideas?
We had the same problems with our Jack Russells (they were able to squeeze thru a slats in our wooden fence when they were small). I used a good quality chicken wire (green, coated) on the bottom of the fence. I was able to attach it with a staple gun but you would have a problem with this solution due to the wrought iron fence.
A different solution would be the electronic fencing that you mention. When used in conjunction with a physical fence, they can be quite effective. The physical fence will be a visual indicator to her and will also deter other dogs from entering your yard. The electronic fence should keep your terrier within your yard.
