Guardian dog neck tie

I received many emails and comments about the neck ties the guard dogs were wearing. First of all I would like to say this is not my invention. I got the idea from Louise who put it on one of her dogs that was digging underneath the fences. Our place in mostly buffalo fenced so the holes are bigger and the dogs can get through pretty easy. So I email Louise for a solution when we needed to keep our dogs away from the neighbors dogs.



We made ours out of irrigation hose. But you could make it out of anything. Louise made hers out of wood.


It is screwed together and attached to their collars with plastic ties. 
It for some reason they get caught up somewhere the ties will break then they can get free. 
We are in with the sheep daily so the risk of us not seeing a dog caught up somewhere is low. 


It works like a dream. 
I am not sure if it would work for a dog who was going over fences as our fences are 6 feet high. But under or through it works great.

Just curious. Can the dog lay its head down to get restful sleep wearing this contraption?

Yes, they can lay on their side and curl up with the sheep no problem. We have not attached them really tight to the collar so it does move around on their neck.
