Size of your dog The size of your dog is an important factor in choosing the right system. A small dog between 5 lbs and 12 lbs needs a receiver collar that delivers lower correction levels than you would need for a larger dog. By the same token a medium sized dog between 10 lbs and 60 lbs will need higher levels of correction than a small dog. And large dogs (over 60 lbs), depending on temperament, may need even higher levels of correction. Careful consideration should be given in the case of very large dogs to environment and temperament before choosing to install an underground fence. It may be necessary to install the underground dog fence in conjunction with a traditional fence for these dogs.
Galvanized Metal Fence Post: Galvanized Metal Fence Post are my choice to use for fencing a backyard or changing out a rotted fence post. When they are installed correctly they can last a lifetime. Diameter of the hole they are to be cemented in to should be 8 - 10 inches and the depth should be a minimum of 30 inches and up to 48 inches. The type of soil and ground condition as well as the freeze line for your area will dictate this. They will cost a little more but in my opinion are worth the difference. Make sure that you get a heavy gauge like a.095 and put a dome cap on it so that it doesnt act like a rain gauge. The appearance is not as natural as wood fence post but this can be easily by boxing it with a fence board or two.
