I've seen these fences for $100 bucks lately, not a huge investment. When I
worked-in-Home Depot I picked up a solar-powered electric fence charger for just
a few bucks - they were clearancing it. The regular chargers that you just plug
in are not all that expensive - you could probably fence off the ponds for $50
or so.

I asked this question of my wife, who has been a pet groomer for 30 years, and
also breeds Standard Poodles (another breed which is quite fond of water, since
they were bred as water retrievers). I consider her an expert on dog behavior.
She immediately said "put up an electric fence!"
