Australian Shepherd Jumping Over Fence
by D. Nighswonger
We gave our beautiful Australian Shepherd, Shadow, a 4 ft chain link fence to run in the backyard. Today a chainsaw scared her evidently.
I went in the house for minute and thought she was fine. When I had been out with her she didn't seem scared.
My husband called said a neighbor found her loose. Thank God they got her on a leash. If I lose her I'll have a heart attack. What do we do now?
How can I fortify the fence or make it taller? How can I keep her from doing it when she sees a cat or dog in the neighborhood that she chases in the backyard but has never tried to jump before?
Any help is appreciated. Please and thank you.
