Do it right

Electric fencing is only a safe, viable option when it's selected and installed properly. Not only that, but it also needs to be maintained correctly. You'll need a weather-resistant location where you can store your electric fence controller. The proximity of your fence posts will depend on the area you're fencing. Generally speaking, the smaller the area, the closer your posts should be. If you feel uncomfortable doing electrical work yourself, have a professional do it.
