Electric Fence
« on: May 14, 2014, 01:42:59 pm »

An electric fence around the bottom of the rabbit house is a great deterrent for predators. I keep one on at all times around my rabbits and I have never had a dog get inside. Dogs have tried but the moment they touch the hot wire they leave them alone. The electric fence charger does not have to be very strong either. I can touch mine and though it is not pleasant to touch it is not strong enough to cause injury. Keep it at least 8 inches off the ground to keep small animals such as frogs, snakes and birds from getting injured. Even a low amp charger can generate enough shock to kill a very small animal.
