Each person I have met that has talked about this type fence have one thing in common. All say their dogs decided the shock was worth it to get out. For me, I think it’s a waste of money.
Myth #5: An electronic fence collar can cause seizures, even in dogs who aren't epileptic.

A. The dog fence wire doesn’t have to be buried at all. 1-3" is sufficient with high quality wire, just deep enough to protect the dog fence wire from creating a trip hazard or becoming entangled in your lawn mower, lawn edger or snow plow. We actually recommend not burying the dog fence wire at all when you can get away with it. Refer to our section titled Easy Installation method.

Underground fence is not a buried hot wire that zaps a dog for getting close to the boundary. It is a radio antenna that sends out a signal that activates a battery in the dog's collar. The battery causes a shock similar to static electricity, and the dog backs off. The field of radio waves can be adjusted so that the dog does not get too close to the edge of the property before hearing the warning tone.Once the wire in installed, the flags are placed along the fence line. For the first week, the dog is kept on a long leash with the receiver-collar on. For the first few days, one prong on the collar is taped so that the dog can hear the warning tone without experiencing the correction. Each time the dog nears the fence and hears the signal, the leash is jerked to bring him back into the safe area and he is praised.A hidden fence system consists of boundary wire, a transmitter, a receiver, a test light, training flags, and a sign. The receiver is attached to the dog's collar; the correcting shock reaches the dog through prongs that touch the skin on his neck.The advantages of an underground fence are clear, but the disadvantages are at least as clear for some dogs and owners and for meter readers, mailmen, joggers, and dog walkers.When the dog has the idea that the boundary causes the correction, distractions can be added. Each time the dog ignores the distraction outside the fence, praise and play are in order. The initial phase of the training takes about a week.Kerry McManus of Cincinnati Invisible Fence, (Cincinnati, Ohio, USA) said that he does not sell the system to contain dogs that have a history of aggression, biting, or running away. His company will install fence around the perimeter of the property and put in side sections to keep the dog in the back yard. The front yard is fenced to minimize the chances of the dog escaping if it slips out the door, he said.
