Before we had the Invisible Fence® Brand system installed I had to chase after our dog as she chased after the teenagers on skateboards, the garbage trucks, whatever. Sometimes in my bathrobe! It was dangerous for Sophie and I usually looked ridiculous running after the dog. Since the Invisible Fence® Brand system was installed and we went through the training, Sophie has the freedom to run and play safely. The fence works great!

“…dogs and cats living together…mass hysteria!” -Peter Venkman, Ghostbusters
We’ve been told all our lives that dogs and cats can’t get along. We think peace between the species is a myth. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Spot slinks out of the hall bathroom with a guilty look on his face. You know something’s up, but you’re not sure what it is until he looks away from you licking his chops. You gasp in horror as it hits you.
He’s been snacking in the cat box.
Your dog has graduated from obedience school at the top of her class. She can sit, lie down, stay, and heel with the best of them. Now it's time to have fun!
Is there really a centuries old undeclared war between these two species? Why is it that some "mixed species couples" get along famously, while others seem to verify the stereotype? During this month of thanks, can't we all just get along?
