There is a house on the corner of Washington Street (main road in Canton) and High Street (the street my street is off) that has an electric fence and a Wheaten Terrier. The dog is now about two and has gone from totally freaked out to aggressively running her boundary. It is SO, SO sad. Note that the owners are NEVER out in the yard with her and she is out for hours upon hours. I know there is 15 % of the population that uses electric fences intelligently, but then there are people like this that ruin (traumatize, whatever you would like to call it) their dog.
I didn't bring electric fences up to go on-and-on - I brought it up because Ike now will not go past the house if the WT Lily is out. Can't say I blame him. Apparently John was walking him this weekend and Lily came tearing out from a hidden spot and rushed the boundary. Ike was pretty freaked out. This afternoon I tried to walk Ike down that way and he spotted Lily and wouldn't budge.
