My daughter is bring a rescue dog home. She is a Siberian Laika who was turned in by owner because she is a Houdini of a runner. They have always kept her leashed but had 7 children and the dog always found a way to run. Will this dog be a candidate for an electric fence and is she too old to train. She is 7 1/2.

Hi Maureen,

That family tree with the Siberian Laika’s, Malamutes and Siberian Huskies all seem to have an temperament for escaping physical fences … I guess they love to run free. The good news is they are all sensitive to the correction, which makes training easier. Age isn’t a big issue, as long as a dog is still mentally fit.

The only thing to watch for with those dogs is the thick undercoat of fur. This can make getting a good connection between the collar probes and the skin tricky. You want to use a system with long collar prongs, and preferably something like the Innotek IUC-4100 or IUC-5100 that lets you test whether the prongs are making good contact. It also helps to thin out the fur under the prongs with some scissors.

I would like to purchase a stay and play wireless system but I can’t get your website to accept it. Do you sell them and are they in stock and how fast can I receive one??? Thanks

ADMIN – Hi Trudy,

We don’t have any of the stay+play in stock. They will not be available until June at the earliest, perhaps July.
