I have a too small yard for a rather rambunctious active border collie mix. After a very snowy winter and heavy rains, my little plot is a mess. I'm looking for suggestions on how to deal with the situation. Getting rid of the dog really is not an option. Making the yard bigger is an option, but I'm not sure where the new fence would go. I have been considering putting in some kind of artificial grass, or taking the fence down and buying a wireless containment system of some kind, either totally wireless, or buried. Before I do either, I'd like everybody else to weigh in to make sure there aren't better options that I'm not aware of. He has made a pretty muddy mess along the fence where he likes to run and bark. Thanks in advance everybody.
