    My "great, sweet, loving, never do anything wrong" dog decided that he needed a new chew toy and that some wires on my truck would be it. He chewed through my aftermarket trailer light connector. I completely removed it, but while I was under my truck I also noticed that he has chewed the wiring harness for the tail lights. I am going to attempt to piece it back together, but in case I cannot I looked for a new harness. I cannot find it on any of the Toyota part diagrams. I may just be blind, but does anyone know what the part number may be?

    Don't worry about the dog... I am going to move his invisible fence this weekend so he can no longer harm my vehilces... (He ate the valve stems off my wife's new Ford Edge.)

    not sure if they sell them.
    but amazon sells harness repair kits, that may be an option for you

    So my truck was towed today to my local dealer. It is waiting on insurance adjuster to say if they are going to cover it.

    I got my truck back today. Total damage was close to $1500... all covered by insurance. I now have a wireless pet barrier in my truck. It integrates with his invisible fence. He wasn't too happy about the Force Field around his favorite truck.

    My dog has around 2 acres that he can run around (enclosed with an invisible fence). He has several bones, raw hides and toys.

    Comprehensive covers animal damage.

    How does an invisible fence work? cant he just run really fast and get through it?

    Mine fence works pretty good. I can change the range from the wire. I normally keep it 1-2 feet from the underground wire, but it can be turned up to 10 ft, which makes a 20 ft. section he would have to run through.

    You don't just install it and throw the dog out there alone. There is a training and conditioning step so the animal learns to not go past a point, I assume.
    Just like I taught mine to not step off of curbs without a release word when we were on walks.

    I trained my dog to use it. He hears the beep of his collar and turns and goes the other way. Recently I started taking him on walks on our road... I have to pick him up and carry him to the road because he knows his boundaries (I took the collar off of him first).

    The real test was yesterday I parked my truck over his favorite toy (other than my truck). He would not go near it all day. He would lay there and cry at it but not get near it.:)
