It might be better to just get another gerbil.

Clear Fence

No Obstructed Views

How about a fence for the yard that is Plexiglass or a high quality super-clear plastic that allows you to have the security of a fence without the constant maintenance or blocked views?

       Since some of us already weekly pay gardeners, poolmen, household maids (and maybe even dogwalkers in urban setttings) I just want to be certain that you are not suggesting that I hire someone else at , say, $7.00 US per hour or more to wash this Invisible Fence at least once a week to maintian its invisibility...Somehow that doesn't seem like the kinder, gentler, more simple life I imagined for my dotage. I used to enjoy that unobstructed view a great deal, though, before the dogs put their noses up against it.

       Many deck railings I've seen have glass or plexiglass inserts, instead of slats, to protect the view.  I suppose it could be taken to this extreme.  I have noticed, though, that those who used plexiglass are usually sorry they did as it gets scratched so easily.   

       Invisible fences work quite well but only when the animal, almost always a doggie, is wearing a special collar that shocks them when they try to cross the "fence" line. (link-a-roo)

       I think the "wireless fence" signs are there to let passers-by know that an apparently-unsecured dog isn't. Of course, that brings to mind the old joke:   

       Man #1: [noticing dog near man #2] Does your bog bite?
Man #2: Certainly not.
Man #1: Nice doggie doggie
Man #1: I thought you said your dog didn't bite?
Man #2: That's not my dog.

       Invisible fences of the non-imaginary kind have a MTBF* equal to the probability of a Motorcycle or Snow-Mobile cutting across your property. (*MTBF = mean time between failure)
