arrived home from work and

Arrived home from work yesterday and my wife and dad had put a electric fence around the vegetable garden to stop "Max" digging up the freshly planted seeds. Never seen a hot wire put around a house veg garden before.

Does prop 19 pertain to electric fences or 5x5 plots?

5x5 garden should be able to yield 25 -30 plants/year. Never thought I'd see the day when you could call the cops when you get ripped for your dope!?

GrandpaRon, Just curious how you know how many plants a 5x5 plot will yield.

All complaints about cruelty to animals especially dogs by use of electric fence should be addressed to this women in photo (Keri), rode into her work to address the issues, well not really just a good excuse to ride on a sunny warm afternoon before i have to go off and work tonight.


Rode back along the narrow country roads around me, the 2nd pic is a corner have slid the rear end 3 times on my previous pirelli strada tyres but they were getting worn at time but you have to watch these roads with loose gravel laying on the corners.

Wow... Sound a little extreme in my oppinion. However, if Max IS persistent, maybe this is a solution.

Come on whats 10,000 volts among friends it is only a small electric fence unit. When I get up from bed after this night shift my general manager has given me instructions to let max out of his kennel and turn fence on.

Yep it is 10Kv but it is the Joule rating that is the true measure of it punch, it just gives you a nasty bite but will not kill you.

Hey Kiwi,

FWIW I’ve gotten good results with one of these Electronic Dog Fences

The “Ultralight” model didn’t do the job (even when my Labs were puppies) but the “Stubborn/Big Dog” model has worked out very well.

And yes, I did try it on myself... It doesn’t really hurt but I sure didn’t like it and it’s not something I ever want to do again. Apparently my dogs feel the same way
.

My wife just hooked it of the hot wire from our farm fence, its only a small unit in the garage running off our 240v mains and will make the cattle and horse sit up and not lean over the fence. Max is a lover not a fighter so after a couple of boots he will learn and will leave power off but leave fence up
