    This is a small electric fence set up for livestock. I used it to keep foxes away from my ducks in past and now try to keep dogs in.

    My dog kept going through it and I found it wasn't working. I only have checked the wire to ground as far as working. DOg checked it also and she says it don't work and I can run loose.
    All there is to it is a transformer and something shaped like a big capacitor. Says on it
    E
    103M
    8KV
    and Continuous Current output
    Can't find this on internet. Looks like a big capacitor. What should be the output from one of these things? Input is 120v .027A

    Transformer has 311-156CP 05 2005 which is probably the year as I bought this about 8 or so years ago.

    Dog catcher has been to the house two times now. No job and can't afford to buy anew one. Besides why buy if I can fix.

    Keep talking to your talking dog!

    Maybe go see a psychiatrist and tell them about the talking dog, some
    medication for you might in order for you.

    You should keep the dog inside, electric fences are cruel.

  3. If you were taking care of your dog properly, you would be taking it for
    walks, letting it stay out side on good days on a runner with fresh food
    and water for him.

    Maybe the dog does not like you ! And there is no reason to use a
    electric fence on a dog. You want the dog to obey you, not the fence!
    for that to happen, you need to take care of it, like give it some
    attention.

    You treat your pets like your kids.. Do you also keep the kids in via
    an electric fence?

  4. 103 would mean 10 000 picoFarads
    The M confuses me, because 10 000 microFarads
    at 8000 Volts would be a lot.
    3 is the number of zeros to append.

    A capcitor for Cuntinuous Current Output must also be a new invention.

    Electric fences make pulses in the 1000 to 3000 Volt range.
    Can clearly hear them in a small medium wave radio, if you have one.


    aahhh...what was the question?

    TO all of you telling me how to keep my dogs in my situation I'll only sayyou don't know anything about things here. Dog will get shocked once and that is all. Have any of you ever been shocked by one of these fences? I doubt it since you probably live in city and have no knowledge of county life.I've been shocked by these a dozen times and its no big deal.
    I do walk dogs, I take them in woods, let them run free and they spend hours swimming in the creek, when dog catcher isn't around. I live on edge ofsmall town in Ozarks, Not NY or some other hell hole. Dogs are in a big yard where they can run free except for the fence.

    One can answer the question, pass moral judgements, or give alternatives
    to what was asked.
    You will get a variety here.
    Hey, it's free.

    Using a metallic collar and leash keeps both lifeforms inside the
    perimeter simultaneously. This technique also limits current because of
    the 'series' resistance effect. Very humane...or is that dogmane?

    Just as a followup, I've probably been shocked 30 to 40
    times with 120Vac. Has made me want to avoid getting shocked but
    it hasn't altered my mental state my mental state in any
    way that a I notice I notice.
