Aussies And Yards Without Fences
I have a very young Australian Shepherd, and we just moved into a home that does not have the best fence. In some places, the fence is only about 3 feet and very rickety. Obviously right now she won't have much unsupervised play, but I'm worried about her in the future.
I have looked into replacing the fence, but we share it with neighbors and they weren't too thrilled about adding a tall fence. I reluctantly purchased a 50 foot "trolley tie-out" for our yard in the meantime. I hate the idea of having her tied up and limited to 50 feet when we're gone, but I also hate the idea of her getting out of the fence and getting lost or hit by a car. I've read that Aussies aren't easily trained to stay in fences. Any suggestions?
