There’s a wide open field next to our house. It’s a good sizes piece of land that has some tall weeds, scrub brush, a couple stands of young trees and bushes all over it. While we are part of a small town outside of Houston, we’re far enough outside of the big city to enjoy the tranquility of the country without really being way out in the boonies. So this open field is a good place to find some of the more expected wildlife that you would likely find in the country. Namely snakes, some poisonous, mostly not, opossums, rabbits, squirrels, armadillos, along with the typical mice and rats that you’d find most anywhere. And of course, that’s where my two dogs have a tendency to run off to as soon as I turn my back.
I have a collie and boxer mix, Cinnamon and Jake. When Cinnamon gets out there, the biggest thing for me is all the stickers she brings back. It makes brushing her coat that much more time consuming since her coat is already thick. I’m not all that concerned that she’ll get attacked out there because she seems to be the more level headed one of the two. She tends to not want to deal too much with what she’s not familiar with. Now Jake is entirely different. There’s no telling what he’ll get into because everything is a game to him.
My worries were confirmed when they both came home about several days ago and Jake had been bitten by something. After rushing to the vet to make sure it wasn’t a poisonous bite, (not cheap, by the way) I decided that enough was enough and it was time to get a fence. Now Jake can jump a six foot fence without much difficulty so I started researching online for an electric fence for dogs. I found a web site that, to me, was pretty reasonable. It’s gryffonproducts for anyone interested.
There are many different kinds of electric fences for dogs and they all range in price, from $130.00 to $310.00. The basic kit will cover about a quarter or a third of an acre. Additional accessory kits ($48.00 each) will increase your area. Still, all that said, gryffonproducts comes in less expensive than most other sites. Plus it’s shipped directly to you. Pay a little extra and it’ll be on your doorstep the next day.
It was simple to install, taking me a day to do about half an acre. A couple training sessions and Cinnamon had it down. Jake, well, he got held back a grade, but he’s doing fine now. Now when I get home from work, I know right where my pets are and I have no more fears that they’ll get injured out in that field.
Not only that, but Jake used to run out in the road to greet me and my wife when we’d get home. No more fears about him getting hit by a car now. Cinnamon sits under the shade tree in the corner waiting patiently for us to come down the street while Jake’s busy getting his head stuck in a bucket or some such thing. When we show up, a herd of wild horses couldn’t get him across that fence line. He waits for us to come to him.
My research showed that overall, gryffonproducts is cheaper than most competitors, even beating some manufacturers that sell directly to the public. Since the electric fence for dogs that I was looking at range anywhere from $150.00 to $310.00 that means that I get to keep some of my hard earned cash. Who doesn’t want to do that?
