Some "weed chopper" types will lock on for a longer period of time to
"burn off" encroaching weeds - but they have been outlawed in a lot of
places for 2 safety resons - 1- not releasing to let a vicim get away,
and 2- staring grass fires.
Here in Canada I believe the only approved fence chargers are pulsed -
I'll see if I can confirm one way or the other.

No feelings hurt. Just have not seen a constant output fence charger
in YEARS. I know we had a Bowman Weed Chopper years ago and even it
was a pulsed output untill a certain current was drawn - then it would
lock on and buzz like an arc welder for a longer pulse. It would burn
off 1 inch saplings with no problem at all. They started lots of grass
fires and were removed from the Canadian market, like 30 years or more
Just checked - there are NO CSA approved AC output, or continuous
shock systems - so no AC shock or continuous shock fence chargers are
legal for sale or use in Canada.
In the USA check with your property/liability insurance company. Most
(or at least many) will NOT insure you with an AC output fence
Most DC output, or intermittent shock fence chargers pulse about 0.3
ms every second or there-abouts at a voltage of 3-10,000 volts Most
general farm use chargers are under 5000 volts, many under 3000 - with
the high voltage units reserved for wild-life control, particularly
for long haired animals and frozen ground.
Sounds like a good thing, dogs getting socialized.
Maybe a dog activated catapult, to fling the dog
over the fence, at his or her will? You don't have
skunks in the area, do you?
Catapult can be named Save The Fence Ultimately,
and you can shorten that to acronym, uh, well,
we will think of some thing better, I'm sure.
Working The Fence? Hmm. Maybe not. I'll get back
