We find it effective to have one at "nose high" too so when they are just meandering about they learn to stay clear of the fence.

But if you have young children it makes it a bit trickier......mind you our son got shocked by ours around the horse yards after we told him not to touch it.....he has never done it again since....

I don't have much experience with fences, but I'm having bad thoughts about the possible dangers of a hot wire, sitting high on the fence.
If the dog is running, and makes a leap, THEN hits the wire, is there a chance the dog wont' be in a position to react, and could possibly panic and fall off the wall?

I'm thinking it might be easier to stop BEFORE the wall.
Is that possible?

Yes. With the nose high ones, you lead the dog on the fence over there, or let it wander (if it's not going to leap up and over immediately) and get zapped. Trust me, it won't go near the fence again!

Well, I happen to go to Petco tonight, and I bump into my neighbor buying the invisible fence.

Thank you for all your help.
