Anyone who has one of these invisible fences, PROPERLY trains their pet, and keeps the system and batteries in proper working order will tell's the best invention since Dunkin Donuts!
Assuming he was properly trained, your dog is suffering from the VERY common "front porch syndrome" and will eventually go further and further from the house.
The training is simple. The wired perimeter is flagged every 5-10 feet. the dog is walked over to the flag and sternly told "NO NO" while shaking that flag in front of him....then allowed to be electroncally corrected. It should take no more than 2 or 3 times before he will stay clear of the flags but stubborn breeds may take more.
Then, after 30 days, you remove every other flag. 30 days later again...every other flag...until they're gone. Our Dobie is outside all the time and has a doggie door so he can go outside anytime he wishes (between 8am and 11pm).
He's so well trained that we have to put him in the truck and drive him off the property because you couldn't drag him off otherwise. Good luck...they work amazingly well! He's also outside when we're not home during the day. I should also add that our Dobie is a big mush and loves everyone.
