Keeping Dogs from Jumping Fence

What is the best way to keep a dog from jumping a fence? My dogs are tough. They even have the underground fence and still jump the fence. I love my boys but get so frustrated. My neighbors lab is the same way (they are brothers). Brandy

Hello Brandy,
I too, had 2 dogs who always jumped the fence. I was getting very frustrated until I found a small fence shocker at my local pet store. It's not as strong as the larger ones you see on cattle/horse fences, but it will give a jolt.

I checked with my vet prior to purchasing...and he said it was not harmful. It only took me a couple hours to run the wire at the top of the fence, and below where they had started to dig. It only took 2 shocks for them to stay away from the fence. After awhile, I could even unplug it and they stayed home. It was a good investment for me. Hope this helps!

Line the top of your fence with inexpensive, PVC pipe by running a cable or some heavy wire through it so the pipe rolls freely when touched. The dogs might be able to reach the top of the wooden or chain link fence but when they attempt to climb the pvc it will just roll and roll and roll. They will tire themselves out trying to get over the fence! I read this idea in a book about Siberian Huskies who are known for escaping. (02/03/2006)
