I agree with never leaving them unattended! We have a 3 yr old Border Collie who is extremely well behaved (sometimes it's spooky how well she listens, but that's her breed) The other dog is a Cairn Terrier / Maltese mix. He's only a year old and he is still in training. (Do terriers ever really finish training? Just curious, 'cause he's a piece of work!) Any way, a water pistol works great on him. He might let out one yip, but he immediately turns to see if I reach for it. Which, of course I do, and he stops.
Obviously, the fences aren't for everyone, but if you know your dogs can be controlled in them, it's a great way to have them with you!
