Has anyone got any experience of this with a very small JR Terrier

Only way is to fence off any exits just remember they also dig their way out if possible. You just watch behavior and block exits as they discover them . Eventually you manage to fence them in. Mind you by then most of the neighbors know where to return the little imp. I'm afraid it not invisible!!! But I find eventually you can let the little bundle of mischief roam free in your back yard. The alternative is to pay for rabbit proof fences!!

you need to be very careful with the "invisible fences" i am a trainer and i know of dogs that have some serious behavioural issues because people have set these up and the dogs are not sure of how it works and are scared to go outside of the house.
if you can try and find where your dog is getting out and block it and only use these "invisible fences" as a last resort or when if told to do so by a professional and get lessons on how to use it properly.
sorry to sound so dramatic but i have seen first hand what these things do to dogs and its better to fix the issue than to fix a behavioural problem which scares the dog from enjoying its own garden

Couldn't agree with Miss A. K. Tourret more. Invisible fences are a lazy cruel way of fixing a problem.
