Used to improve or reinforce physical fence only.

  • Can be used to keep LGDs out of certain areas
  • No need to boundary train as physical fence already exists.
  • Buy extra wire in bulk, UV coated for longer lifespan.
  • Sport Dog 100 acre model recommended by many LGD owners. (I have no relationship/endorsement with company).
