Question Help with Cap identification

Hi All,
I need a bit of help identifying what type of capacitor is highlighted (RED in the picture.
I see that it has "152" on the body (Sorry for the blury picture) so I am thinking that it is .0015 uF or 1500 pF. What I don't know is; is this a ceramic or a tantalum or something else.
It is in a circuit for keeping your dog in your yard via a loop of wire.
Also, if anybody could point me to a source (in the US) for a replacement, I would really appreciate it. I found one place that has something that looks similar, but I don't need a minimum of 1000 of them
Thanks for taking a look.
Scott

Hi,

152 means: "15" + "00" p
You write down the first two letters, and then put as many zeros to the end, as the third letter.
So it is 1500 pF, as 1.5 nF.
This should be a simple ceramic cap (ceramic caps usually the cheapest).

If you do replace it. Make sure the voltage rating is the same or higher. You could try polysterene or silver mica. But what's the objective of replacing it?

If ya want the normal I mean not audio grade. Radio shack should have.
