I love the electronet idea. I could power it up on one trip to convince Jack he shouldn't try to escape, and that would do it. Do you have a photo of it in use? What do you do for a gate?

Exclamation caution using the sheep fence

I just open the end when I'm going in or out, and sort of loop the top strand over the other end's post to help hold it closed.
Regarding dogs and electric fence, be very very careful about this. The modern chargers give an extremely painful shock. I've had a couple of terrible experiences with other dogs getting shocked on our farm, and freaking out, taking off, and getting lost, and I could imagine a dog never feeling comfortable again inside the enclosure. Or hating your camper forever and ever if they associate the camper with the shock. I almost wish I hadn't mentioned it, but it is working very well for me and I wanted to share that. I don't introduce my dogs to it anywhere near the camper, and they are in a bigger enclosure. I bait the fence so that they touch it with their nose instead of sticking a leg through or trying to get their body through it. It's possible for animals to become very badly tangled in this fence. I know someone who's cat got tangled in it and died. So be careful, ok? Not to be used without some supervision. If I was leaving them in it unsupervised I would do an ExPen enclosure. Much more secure and stable, and safer.

Maybe DonnaD can help on this one,but there use to be a member here that took their cats along with them.( I am sure there are still some here that do ) What I thought was great about their cat set up was they had a neat cat pen that connected to one of their storage bay doors,so their guys could be inside or out and still be safe. I think they called it their cat hotel.....it was kind of an exercise /crate type pen.

As far myself and DH we have 2 Chihuahuas....they are 10 and 4.They think the camper belongs to them,but they do let us go along and stay with them...LOL! DH designed and built them a special xpen type crate that has a top on it.We don't worry about them getting out so much as we worry about something getting in.

Happy Camping

if you want to electrify the premier fence, you can go to Electric Fence, Horse Fence, Electric Fencing, PowerFlex Fence for information regarding a small portable charger that you push into the ground. the small chargers use D cell batteries. I occassionally use both for my sheep.

Great picture,sure like the set up. Our oldest DD & Hubby are at Agility show this week end. Don't know how they did today but last week they got 2Q's each. So far their shows are close enough for them to day trip both days of the show.

Happy Camping

Heh heh watch out, it's an addictive hobby! Chis are small enough to fly in an airplane in the cabin with you, too. No limit to how far you can go with them!

Molly, the greyhound, is the reason I have the Escape! She's scared in motels but treats the trailer like a big crate - and yes, she sleeps on the small dinette bed.
I use 1 1/2 xpens just to provide a bit of off leash area under the awning for her. When the air conditioning is working, she's safe even in the deserts that are my favorite camping areas.

I think my corgis would go right through that if it were not electric. Hmm, I hope it comes smaller.

Yep, it's not really a physical barrier at all.

Tollers eh!

Alan I have 2 tollers who just love to go camping. Mine are very friendly and are very birdy. They even let me sleep with them in the trailer. Others I have met can be a bit aggressive and a little anti social. If you want the name of a really good breeder in Calgary p.m. me

Hi! I travel with "The Boys" in a Casita Spirit Deluxe. One is a brittany and the other is a pem corgi. We are currently doing obediance trials and travel the west coast and Arizona. I use three x-pens plus a x-pen gate. I just put them on the door side of the trailer. One of the pens is cut down to so I can open my door with the step out.
