Is an invisible fence cruel?
As I tell my clients when they ask, I do not recommend Invisible Fences as an ideal first-line option for any dog.

Will an invisible fence stop a pitbull?

What is wrong with invisible fence?
The prongs on the collar can injure the skin. Wild animals, cats, other dogs or even people (especially children) can easily wander into your yard, which can result in injuries to everyone involved. Invisible fences also do little to protect dogs from being stolen or harmed by people with bad intentions.
