    I've seen someone who does fences for a living with a Dingo, so at least around here they must work ok.

    It's not a dumb idea, but don't underestimate the cost of fencing and barn install and maintenance costs.

    Either you or the owner needs to spend a lot at the start and then it's a gamble. If you...
