invisible fence/lightning

Not sure if this is the right forum or not, but here goes...... Lightning just ran into the house through from our invisible fence. The invisible fence panel was plugged into a surge protector, but it was simply destroyed. I'm curious... is there some way that I can ground this line outside before it comes into the house. TVs and freezers get expensive!

A better surge protector would help.
I had one surge protector physically blown apart from a strike, but the electronics on the same circuit didn't have a problem.
Also, make sure your appliances are properly grounded.
