    7 My fence has been rebuilt

    The workers left about 20 minutes ago. After three weeks of waiting and a week in-progress, the fence has been replaced. I can finally let the pups out again without having to get dressed at night and keep them on-leash. The new roof goes on next Friday the 28th.

    I'm pretty damn happy.

    Man builds new fence and dog jumps it.

    People are quick to confuse and despise confidence as arrogance but that is common amongst those who have never accomplished anything in their lives and who have always played it safe not willing to risk failure.

    That first fence is only about 4' high. Mine is 6'. Hermione is far too old, and Aja doesn't jump fences. But that 8' fence jump is just DAYUM!

    If you google german shepherds jumping fences you'll find some that are even more spectacular! and FWIW Jr. our doodle does the same thing, as did our weimeraner, both can/could scale a 6 foot fence in the same manner.

    Had a pit mix in California that would jump up on to the 6" block wall and hang his front legs over and just look around before jumping down.

    We have a chihuahua that can climb a chainlink fence like a damn monkey!! Couldn't figure out how he was getting out of the yard until one day I was working on my RV and heard him behind me on the otherside of the fence. i turned around and was looking at him at my face level only a few inches away from the top of a six foot cyclone fence!!
    We have done so much, with so little, for so long....We can now do anything, with nothing, forever.

    Speaking of fence, what kind of fence and approx how much was it installed per foot? We have "dog fence" on the homestead list of things to do (and before we get another dog). Saving up for it right now, but not sure what the going rate is these days.

    It would have to be a 6 ft fence as well, as with all of the snow we get, a 4 footer is pointless.

    We lived in a neighborhood where everyone had 4 foot chain link fenced back yards. I watched our black lab, run and hurdle each fence for six houses down from ours. Never hesitate or break stride. He just hit the top rail, and on to the next fence.

    :expnd: sounds just like Jr. and the stupid animal shelters demand that your yard be fenced in before they will let you adopt a dog. For some dogs fences are objects to be climbed or jumped over.

    Wood privacy fence, $20/ft. Everything is complicated by the fact that except for the outer fence by the sidewalk, the other two fence walls are "shared." Those sharing have to agree on the particulars of the fence repair, which strings the process out.

    Our billy goat did jump the fence, now there is either hot wire around the top or barb wire strung along the top. He no longer jumps the fence.

    An easy way to deter dogs from climbing fences is to blow up a bunch of balloons and tie them along the top of the fence. Close enough that the dogs will touch any one of them. It scares them when the balloons pop and they stay away from the fence even after you take the balloons down.

    We've had luck keeping renter's dogs next door away from the fence with a little hand held sound machine and a plugged in bark machine. We don't even have to use them after a couple of weeks.
    But I hope no one with a pit bull moves in. Not sure it would work on those evil cookie monsters.
    Saw with my own eyes one go over a concrete fence like was said above.

    My Lily does that. She's a lab/border collie mix.
