How to Install an In-Ground Fence in Four Easy Steps

Tango (our dog) ate Australia. Not the whole country, but the nice (i.e. expensive)Lakeshore Learning Store laminated map that we had posted to the wall (it was a world map and now is missing a whole continent). “Big dogs need lots of exercise or they will resort to destructive behaviors.” Thanks Cesar.
