Living on a lot of ground does not preclude a fence. In fact it would make it even more reasonable to have a fence so you can keep the dog nearby where you can keep an eye on her. If you don’t want a visible fence, they make invisible fences with collars that keep the dog in. However, some dogs learn to run really fast so they don’t have to feel the effects of the collar for long. If you refuse any sort of fence, your only option is a leash, especially with an independent breed like a pug.
