Bully breeds and invisifence ...effective?

So I am on the market for a new house with land....working on my budget and I know an invisible fence is a ton cheaper than a standard 6-8ft fence for the size land I am looking to purchase...anyone have some experience or input to help me make a decision?

It REALLY depends on the dog. Bottom line.
We co-owned an Akita "Bubba" who would stay behind it 99% of the time, but when he decided, he would buck up, and go right through it. That was way back when the invisible fence was still patented, ooober expensive, and they came out to "help the non trainers" train their dogs. That sending out a trainer thing is why the product is still around I think. Without it the product may have failed to go nationwide. That being said training is a vital step. But never forget -if a dog wants after something -most will find a way no matters what kind of fencing. Electric, or blockade type.
In our area anything with a somewhat almond eye, rounded jaw, or athletic look without a curl over tail (then they are labeled chow mixes) is labeled a "pit" by our media. PETA headquarters being in our backyard, and all, so I won't do it with my bully, cause of the BSL threat. That is my choice, I KNOW my dogs -big & small -are what I call non-aggressive defenders. While they are not aggressive dogs they WILL meet a threat head on. The last thing I need is one of these dogs ppl like to drop off out here in the country to be livestock /ppl aggressive, and my dogs defend our persons & property. BC all you will hear is my pitbull killed an innocent dog. NOT that my dogs were defending my family, or thousands of dollars in livestock were defended efficiently by insuring there would be no repeat threats from the loose animal. Ya never hear that.
Well bred pits & bullys are very efficient dogs who approach things as all, or none. From jokes to threats. Mud to baths. Car rides to nap time. Everything with gusto!
If you plan on living way out there like us,or in a neighborhood should weigh in appropriately to not only keep your dog safe, but also keep BSL at bay. I keep fenced areas, and some chained areas for a as needed basis, but most of the time they are free, and like to stick with us.

I've seen one used on a great pyr. That dog never crossed it. I personally would never use one for the simple fact of I honestly think my dog would go right through it. I use tie outs for all three and I'm outside with them always. They have access to the entire front and side yard but are still IN my yard. The tie out stops right before the ditch and goes to the property line. It's also kinda like insurance for me too. I can always guarantee my dogs were in my yard.

No way! Invisibles fences are terrible for bully breeds! These breeds have a very high pain tolerance and a high prey drive. If they see something they want on the other side of the the "fence" it's not a problem for them to go right through it. I know without a doubt my dogs would go through one and it not phase them. One of my dogs got attacked by a nest of hornets and she was acting like nothing was even happening. I got stung by one and it was so painful and swollen for two weeks!
Then even if your dog responded well to the invisible fence the fence doesn't protect your dog from stray dogs, wild animals etc. from entering!

Definitely a no go in my opinion. A good chain spot or a fence is worth it.

And I just got back from a walk...... A big 120-150lb black mastiff looking mix came running at us...he went through the invisible fence that his owner have in place. My female dog was going nuts trying to get at him. Thankfully he is a friendly dog and didn't attack us. His owner came over apologizing. I told her I wasn't worried about him attacking us, but of him getting too close and my dog attacking him she said that if my dog attacked him it would have been her fault. So yay! For an owner willing to admit fault!

That's rare these days....

I had an invisible fence that worked great with my lazy femsle lab, I wouldn't use it fot any of the dogs I have now though.... if you dont have a fence just use a kennel or tie out.

I live in a very rural county, and highly populated with bully breed type dogs. No negative connotations associated with them here, where I live, majority of people are educated on animals and their behaviors...

But anyhow, right now where I live my house sits on an acre, not fenced in, she is out off leash for a very limited period of time and it is only for fetch and sometimes for bathroom. I'd like to have her out with us more when we move, only if we have a fence of sorts. She is very obedient and haven't had any issues, but I don't want to worry about possible liabilities regardless. Not to mention I am anxious for a new addition....

Just cost wise an invisible fence = less than $500 where an 8 ft privacy fence for needed area will run upwards of $5k

My last post was a delayed reply to the first response....

I definitely thought that would be the case, hence the reason I wanted everyone's experience who had used them and what type of dog they used it with. Bella is not easily distracted (we have constant rabbit, squirrel, deer, etc traffic and she doesn't pay them any mind. A fence would be more so she could spend more time with us outside with more "freedom"...a real fence it will be. Thanks

Yea Coach, I know...I figured, I just was curious really...to me it was a no brained, but with no experience and don't know anyone personally that had used one except for with lap dogs, I just wanted confirmation lol....I remembered one of my old neighbors had one with his Boxer, so that really sparked my question...but I know my old Boxer girl was a wimp, so I'm sure it would have worked for her too...Bella on the other hand...I doubted my little gangsta girl would have been phased in the least...

But this is the best part of this forum...when you want honest opinions
