How to Keep My Dog From Climbing the Fence

If you own a dog like I do and that dog has learned to climb over your fence, then I feel sorry for you! It can be a nightmare waiting for the next time they escape. It means discovering they have done it again. It means scouring your neighborhood trying to find them. It means hoping against hope that you do not find them lying in the road dead where they have been hit by a passing car. It happens all to often even when a dog owner does their best to keep their pet protected. It can be heartbreaking for the family that loves them.

When you have done everything you know to do to secure your fence, but your dog still is able to climb and claw their way over the top, other than adding to the top of the fence and making it a tower, there isn't much else you can do. But, really there is. I too thought I would never find a solution.

I was searching for a way to add to the top of our fence so I would not have to replace the entire thing, when I found this website, doggybakery.org. I had heard of invisible fences before, but I didn't want to tear down our existing fence and start all over. It was a chain link fence that we had only installed for our kids a few years before. Then we got them the cute and adorable little golden retriever for Christmas. It was fine for over a year and then the nightmare began with him climbing up and over! Our solution was easy, we only had to add an electric wire system across the top. It didn't cost that much, so I was pleased. There are other options available, but this was the one that worked for us.
