    Not sure I want to run wire where a dog could run through it and rip it out of my release's anyway.
    It is interesting that there's enough power to do that if you wanted to though.

    12 weeks old and look at that beautiful Hold. Did you take the rope off on purpose? I did that when my pups were that age, rope kept tripping them up.
