Did you ever have a need for them to walk through the gate, and was
there a problem teaching them to go through? Colflesh mentions this
as a possible side effect that can be dealt with once you know your
training has taught them that the road is unsafe, but obviously considers
it preferable to a pup who runs into the road. I was wondering whether
you found this to be so.

Good idea, and it reminds me of how the radio fence systems are
supposed to work. You want the dog to turn back into the safety of
the yard instead of challenging that boundary.
