Ah, the things we do for friends (and/or family members) in need! Today I’m stepping out of my “comfort zone” a little bit by not posting a story about my three personal sunbeams.
A friend has asked for my help. And all I need do is provide a link in my blog to the blog post of another of her friends. Simple enough. Here’s that link:
The only hard part for me is the fact that I, personally, do not like invisible fences. They provide absolutely no privacy from passers-by (and I am nearly fanatical when it comes to my privacy). They do not keep other peoples’ dogs out of your yard, or people either for that matter. And, no amount of beeping or shock from the collar will deter a dog who REALLY wants its freedom. True, a wood or chain-link fence won’t contain such a dog, either; but a dog with physical limitations is less likely to jump over or dig under a visible fence than to ignore the shock sensation from a collar.
Okay, so that said, I realize there are people who prefer the invisible fences for their own reasons. That’s fine with me…I can agree to disagree. BUT for those of you who do, I believe you should do your “homework” before deciding on any specific fence. The link above not only reviews invisible fences; but also provides some excellent educational value with respect to the choice, installation, and use of an invisible fence. And as an added bonus includes a training video.
So, that’s the extent of my Barks and Bytes Blog Hop post for this week. The Barks and Bytes Blog Hop is for everyone — pet bloggers and people who blog about other things — so please come join us!
Welcome to Thursday’s Barks and Bytes Blog hop hosted by 2 Brown Dogs and Heart Like a Dog.
The Barks and Bytes hop is for anything at all and all bloggers are welcome. You don’t have to be a dog blog to join.
For new blog hoppers, a blog hop is list of links that is shared on multiple blogs. In order to be fair to all participants we ask you to please use the linky list. If your blog does not support a linky list, please link back to your hosts.
This is a Blog Hop!
