How to Keep Your Dog From Jumping Your Fence
Many pet owners struggle with keeping their dogs from jumping the fence. We put together our top tips on how to keep your dog from jumping your fence to prevent him from getting lost or running out into the street.
Why is my dog trying to jump my fence?
Before trying to change your pet’s behavior, it is important to understand why that behavior occurs. Dogs can jump fences for a variety of reasons. Many dogs are simply curious about what is going on outside. For these dogs, squirrels in your yard, neighbors walking by, or cars driving down the street can be enough to tempt them to jump your fence and investigate.
Other dogs may be driven by anxiety. Sometimes dogs just want to be with people and being fenced in alone outback isn't enough to keep them secure when you pull in the driveway.
Ways to prevent your dog from jumping your fence.
There are several different methods to keeping your dog from jumping your fence. Keeping your dog stimulated with their favorite dog toy and exercised can help prevent them from jumping your fence due to boredom.
