Article: Escaping Dogs: Some Fences Are Better Than Others (No replies)
Note: I absolutely despise electric fences. The only reason I have an article here is because it reveals how ineffective they are from a containment perspective.
The results showed that an electronic fence was the least effective method of containing a dog: 44% of dogs contained by one had escaped. Dogs were less likely to have escaped from a tether (27%) or from a see-through fence (e.g. chain link or slatted wood) (23%) or a privacy fence that is not see-through (also 23%).
