Honestly I wouldn't buy an electric pet fence. I don't think there is one that is foolproof. Too many things can happen that you can't control. Is it not possible to put up an actual fence?

Sounds like he has a wall so that may be the fence???

We have the Hidden Fence brand.....it is American I think.....it is great...we have had no problems with it. Ours are set on less than medium shock strength and our dogs don't question it.....it goes up to 9 so we have a long way to go if needed but we have had it for over a year and no problems. I have heard the cheaper ones are a bit dodgy.....ours was on the high end in terms of money but considering you now may have to get another one the higher price may have been worth your while.
Good luck

Just a thought......do you have it snug around the neck?? Ours has to be fairly snug in order for the prong things to be touching the skin for a good contact.

training works. if you're not going to train him not to jump
the fence add some kind of extention so he can't clear
the fence when he jumps or buid him a large kennel.

Did you train the dog using the flags that usually come with the fences?

yeah everything was on right and turned on high i could tell it shocked him he just didnt seem to care...the problem is he loves to jump so dang much its not just our wall he jumps,there are about 15 other walls and he jumps ours and then goes running thru other peoples yards jumping theirs in the order they go.all i see is him jump ours and then him pop up jumping the others going in the other direction from me and when he gets to the last yard he turns around and i see him hopping walls coming back to our yard.

Why don't you install a VISIBLE electric fence? I am working with two big dogs who freeze in their steps when they are outside after the owners installed one of those abusive invisible devices. They won't move a step and have a devastated look in their faces because they were severely pushed just by being outside; they don't know what hit them and why and changed from normal dogs into basket cases.
