I need to install something like this against my wood fence. I would happily mallet away on them, but they seem ridiculously expensive for what is basically a connected set of metal spikes. Is there any DIY solution to this or is Dig Defence(tm) being sold as a more expensive repurposed version of a cheaper product? If so, what should I be looking for?
Help me think straight. I was attacked by a loose German Shepherd while out on a walk with my husband and our two small leashed dogs. What should I do next? The owner is in denial and I am concerned for the safety of myself and others. I think that if I threaten a lawsuit I could scare her into building a fence and reinforcing her door. I'm interested in getting her to take action to keep her dog enclosed or to take it to a behaviorist, not trying to win money in a settlement. [more inside]

Our driveway is on a very small incline. At the bottom of the driveway, which exits onto the street, is a gate attached to our fence. The gate swings inwards, so when the gate is closed, there is a small gap at the bottom to accommodate the incline when it's fully open. Our dog can escape out of this gap. Other than plugging it with a long piece of scrap wood while we're out with him, how can we solve this problem? [more inside]

I'm looking for an invisible fence for our 15 pound Schnoodle. Are the store-bought models sufficient, or should we go with a professionally installed system (i.e. these folks)? Do they work when there's snow on the ground?
