Radio Fence?

I am considering getting a rat terrier. I live on 11 acres and dont have a
formal fenced yard. Are there any of the radio fence products that are worth
having? I would really appreciate any information available.

Chances are that you won't successfully contain the dog in the long run -
unless you are willing to give it some significantly painful shocks right
from the beginning. And even if you do that the risk of failure is pretty
high. You have a breed with high prey drive, high pain tolerance, and
strong stubborn streak. The system could be sufficient for a while - but
eventually a cat or squirrel or something will get your dog so focussed
on the chase that it doesn't even notice the shock. Dogs bred to engage
in battle with their prey - as terriers are - are bred to ignore the pain
that will naturally occur in such battle. Radio collar fences tend to
fail when the dog is in prey drive mode.
