Wireless Pet Fence creeping in my mind again

Seems every Spring I start thinking about how awesome it would be to take the hounds out to my parents place and have them round around the house like they do here. The only problem of course is that they would not only run around the house, but they would also run right out into the woods and never be heard from again! I don't think my wholesale insurance for pets would cover me if I just lost my dogs.. Umm.. not acceptable.

So for this reason when I've started hearing about the wireless pet fences, it really starts to get me excited to perhaps try it out. I'm in a bit of a different situation however as I already have an in ground system which works perfectly for them her at my house.

My question? I wonder how easily they could adapt to the new system? Would they be able to at all I wonder? I've yet to be able to find a good solution or answer/question online - so if you know of anyone that's had both, or has both.. please let me know.. would love to take my hounds out to the woods in my car (with the system) and let them run around.. it'd be fun!!

Happy New Year!!

Well I hope everyone reading this had a great holiday season and that Santa found you all! I know here in PEI (yes.. I write this from PEI, not NFLD where it's hosted) - Santa did find us, and found my two hounds Hunter and Bella as well!

This year we got some gifts that we likely won't ever use like rain boots for them and some jackets (there's just something about putting a jacket on a hound that I don't particularly like.. heh heh).. anyhow, they did get lots of great rawhide treats, marrow bones laced with nice spices, squeaker toys  and treats, lots of treats.

Actually one of their more popular toys which I thought was cool was this game Liz found for them at Winners. I'm not sure who makes it, but it was pretty slick - we would put a treat in the board, and the hounds would have to use their noses and brains to get at it. Ahhh... food, is there anything else that motivates a hound more than that?

Talk soon everyone!
