Hmmmm...Aluminum foil! Sounds good to me!

We've had some Houdini's in our midst and they are a trying bunch. Sometimes it helps to put a dog choke collar on them. Make it big enough so it hangs down in front and weight it with a clip on fastener like those on tie out chains. When they try to go through the fence the chain hits the wire and it's a hot time in the old town tonight! This also works if you have small goats you're trying to tame and they run away all the time. Just put a bigger weight on the end of the chain. When they run it bangs them in the knees (you can see why it only works for small goats!). Pretty soon they figure out it hurts to run from you and stop doing it.

Another method we've used is for those little buggers that go under the bottom wire. Put a nice thick layer of vaseline down their backs. heck of a conductor!! It usually only takes one or two times of getting into the wire before they stop doing it.
