dog alpha 2 electric fence 0, what to take to the doctor for visit

we have 2 dogs
dog alpha is a mixed breed     he is very friendly
however he is the protector of my wife she and of our property
if he doesnt know you well it is not fun to be around him
we live on 10 acres surrounded by ranches
our nearest neigbors are on ranch land
its nice to have him around at night and when we are gone

but  when visitors are around we keep him in a 800 square foot
enclosure until the visitors leave

my nephew he is visiting from out of state doing an internship
with a movie company-will tell you more about this when movie is

we have an electric fence that we put up to keep them isolated
from my nephew while he is here-especially when he comes in late at night
dog alpha does not like the electric fence
he will not come with in 15 feet of the fence-he made the mistake of
touching it when we had it around our chicken yard enclsoure

dog beta is a golden retriever loves everyone if he knows them or not
but he dont like gun shots from hunters
he is too smart to get any where near that electric fence

when no one is here we keep the fence turned off so they can roam
all of the property

so the fence is set up so they have 1/2 acre to themselves-should be enough
well we had a big storm come through
dog alpha becomes dog zeta when this happens
the next morning after the storm came through he is found on the wrong side of
what used to be an electric fence
the wire was everywhere-am glad didnt see this happen

the electric fence was replaced and repaired
dog alpha(now zeta) would not have anything to do with crossing over that wire
laying on the ground

got his walking leash-he loves to go to the river so he can smell varmits
roll in deer doo and swim in the river
he came to me immediately but had to drag him under the wire
released him and he was ok being on the right side of the electric fence

well it is dove hunting season this weekend
they start at sunrise
dog alpha become dog zeta when guns are shot
does sound like a war zone around us during
first weekend of dove season
we tolerate it as its pay back for what we (me) did growing up

walked outside to go to work yesterday after fixing up the damaged fence
there was dog alpha on the porch(on wrong side again)

he had gone through the fence again when the shooting started

dog alpha 2      electric fence zero

tomorrow what to bring in when you see the doctor(not talking about copay)
