In my dream home, I would want 8+ feet of stone wall, with additional 2 feet under ground. I would put a living fence along the inside to cover up the ugliness. The amount of money for this would be ridiculous.

pick out fencing that you like. make sure your dog can't
jump the fence, dig out of the yard or climb the fence.
if you're going to leave a collar on your dog when
she's in the yard make sure it can't get caught on the
fence.

Yeah going underground is also a good idea. Would you put ivy on your wall? I know I looked the price up its A LOT!! of money!

an 8' stone wall is a work of art. there's nothing ugly
about it. are talking about real stone?

Invisible fence is not really secure...anything can enter and dogs will blow out of them if there is enough value in doing so. If you aren't into smachy fancy fencing, livestock fence that is reenforced at the top is usually fine to keep a dog contained. We have an acre fenced, and it's 6 ft wooden privacy with the back wooded area chain link with locked gates. Not fancy, but has held up well for 18+ yrs.
The only, only time I'd put in an e-fence is for double security(we have it in the front, but never use it) or because actual fences are against a HOA's. And then, I wouldn't trust it/the fact that some dog bunchers target HOA area's is another reason the e-fences aren't secure.
This is a photo outside of my old fence:

@doggiedad Hmm... yeah see I have no clue with the invisible fence. I've seen a couple commercial on youtube about them but I haven't done real research about them.

Yeah I've been told before that she would be a dog that would go through an invisible fence. I think if i did get one I would get it as a back up fence but I think now I just may go with the stone and iron fence C: Thanks.

? Dream on dream on dream on - dream until your dreams come true "aerosmith"

Your fence will probably cost more than the house !!

check out the price per foot , and that won't include installation.
Rock walls do not sit on the ground level , they need to be dug for foundation - depending where you live that might be below the frost line , so as much below as above .

mmm sing with me - dream on dream on dream - dream until your dreams come true.

AHAHA! I know I looked it up and its about $140,000 for the perimeter of 5 acres.Thats the rock wall and the wrought iron together plus installation, but that is just a estimation and its based on normal iron not the kind I want. HAHA! I better start saving or the fence would have to wait :P
