    Well hopefully he's not exercising too much until all that food has passed thru. I always fear bloat when dogs get into food.

    If you live rural you may be able to find some cheap electric tape, same they use for horses and cattle and put it up at his height just inside your fence.

    I have a top wire that is electric, suitable for cats and dogs because when we moved semi-rural our Gordon had sensory overload and was jumping the fence. At first we topped it up but then had to resort to the electric wire as it worked out a lot cheaper. I don't think it's been turned on for a couple of years now - they learn pretty quick. I've touched it accidentally gave me a good zap sure made me remember.

    It's totally illegal here in NSW but you do what you've got to do to keep them safe.

    The other alternative is to build a run.

    He may need food dispensing toys to keep him occupied? At least he doesn't kill the chooks, my Gordon Setter was presenting me with the neighbours chooks, still alive (lovely soft gundog mouth) but certainly in shock and not impressed.

    killing the chooks would be like killing the goose that laid the golden egg. We have not had an egg since Christmas... but gee the beagle has a good coat!

    I just submitted him to the dog shaming site- OMG what a hilarious site!

    I second the invisible fence. My sons dog is a run away dog. Son goes to work and the dog goes walk about but was always home before the son. Installed an invisible fence and now the dog will come no closer than a meter from the fence even if it is turned off.

    Had to go look for that site and it is so funny indeed! Dogshaming

    I'm going to submit Banjo for stealing a whole home-made cake of the bench the other day, but there'd be few who could top your Beagle's crime!
