It is amazing how they know when it's on them--I won't go so far as to say she's a different dog, but she gives you that look when I put the collar on, like a teen getting ready to go to the prom and then you activate the GPS tracker in the car--"C'mon, man...really?" The advantage of the training collar over the bark collar is that you have control over it, so you can use it for other "bad" behaviors--not just braking, but chewing, jumping, aggressiveness toward other dogs, etc. Plus you can use it to train her with marker flags as a boundary for your property. The bark collar does it's thing with no input from you, but it's only good for barking. If she's ruined 3 cell phones, I'd go with the training collar, you won't need to use it for long.

been googling for invisible fencing and campground. We are getting an invisible fence installed at home and getting the "rock" to which we can connect a wire to keep our dogs contained on our campground lot. anyone knows about this system?

In my research on dogs and training, I have decided not to use wireless fencing. I have read to many stories where the dog decided what was on the other side was worth the pain to go through the fence. Then once outside the fence it wasn't worth the pain to go back through. This is not to say that it doesn't work perfectly on some dogs.

You're right. I have three dogs. It works great on two. The third will just ignore even to highest settings to chase his nemesis -Mr. Squirrel.

How do you keep them from knocking over the fence? Or jumping out? I have one youngster who can jump a 6 ft. fence. Clearly, he's a candidate for the tie out.

We have a dog which we don't allow to bark. If she starts, she goes inside the camper and has a bark collar put on immediately which stops all barking. We've had several bad experiences camping next to someone with a dog fence with the owners putting their dogs in them and letting them bark all day. So, now, when we pull into a park and see a dog fence, we go to the opposite side of the campground.

Fortunately none of our crew are jumpers. They are good about respecting the fence, but obviously at 100+/- lbs each they are definitely capable of breaching it with a determined try. We only use it to corral them in lieu of leashes; they are never left unattended in the "yard."
