IF you go to 'fix' the fence, be careful.
I have seen two types of chargers.
The ones for pets are a few hundred volts
and ordinary 600V rubber gloves should be OK.
I had a dog that would just walk through the
fence, wiggling as she went, to get out.

Chargers for livestock can run up to several THOUSAND Volts.
Best to turn the charger OFF before fooling with the fence :-)
I've seen dogs come running and howling after hitting my 
neighbors livestock fence.
