This weekend I set up an invisible fence (PetSafe). It took two days of mind-numbing work putting the wire into the ground, but the reviews had prepared me for that. (I’m so glad that it’s the spring rather than the summer.) I was happy when that bad boy powered up and the “loop” light turned on. I’m not the most mechanical person in the world, and I just knew I was going to screw something up.
(Actually I did kinda screw up. I accidentally cut through the wire while chopping through some roots. But I fixed it like a pro!:))
If you have one of these things, how long did it take for your cat to learn?
I can’t tell if my cat Amigo is being…um…punished…whenever he breaches the boundary. Which he does a lot. I can hear the collar beeping when he crosses into the Forbidden Zone, and his behavior does appear to change a little bit. But I’m feeling kinda skeptical that this little rascal will stay where I want him to. He is so sweet and intelligent, but I’m concerned that his playfulness makes him immune to fear.
If you have a success story, I’d love to hear it. As well as any training tips.
