We had the same problem with our Anatolian's, and have finally been able to keep them in. Like you, most of our neighbors were ok with them as, they did not bother livestock or other dogs, and ran the pigs out of our area. But 2 or 3 distant neighbors (3 to 10 miles away) did not appreciate them, especially during hunting season! We have 200+ acres that are capable of keeping ASD in. ASD respect electric, but if it is only 1 strand, they will figure it out, or endure the shock. We have put 4'6" red line 2x4 fence in with 2 strand of barbed wire at the top, with a hot wire 6" off the ground around our entire property and have not had an escapee in 5 months! Ours have livestock to protect, and a job important!
