So we had to hot-wire the fence - the only way to stop it. It was low voltage so no harm, just a jolt when they touched it. Haven't had to have it on for years now as just the sight of the wire is enough to deter them.
It's interesting that anyone who has been around both dogs and horses would agree that dogs are smarter (okay, most people, the vast majority of us). Yet I've often heard that once dogs learn a wire is hot, it can be left off and they never go near it again. In contrast, horses run a whisker over electric fence regularly, and as soon as it's off, so are they.
