Re: Advise on a electric fence to run across my back fence to stop my dog digging

Hello @kelly4


Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community. It's great to have you join us, and thank you for sharing your question about running an electric fence at the back to stop your dog from digging.


If you are running an electric fence with the O'Briens Electric Products, you have a few choices on which fence energiser to use. Below is a list of the fence energisers. 



Once you've chosen your energiser you will need O'Briens 100m x 40mm Electric Fencing PolytapeO'Briens Electric Fencing Steel Post Cap Insulator - 10 Pack or you can use O'Brien's White Electric Fencing High Strain Insulator - 5 Pack. Depending on the recommended fence height, you will need to use O'Briens 1.075m White Electric Fencing Treadin Post. Please make sure to follow the recommendations for Polytape height for dogs. 


Here is a handy link that will help you install your electric fence: O' Brien's how-to videos


If you need further assistance, please let us know.
