Electric Fencing Has Limitations

Here is a dog that escaped from his "electric fence" (probably a hidden buried wire surround the property with an electric collar on the dog that senses when the dog is near the boundary) and the dog got stuck in frozen mud. I warn people that such fencing is not completely reliable. I have seen many dogs escape using such a system. Such "hidden fence" systems have their role, but they can't prevent all escapes and they can't prevent animals or people coming into your yard and attacking your dog.
