    Default Escape Artist...

    hi all i have a greyhound who is proving a bit of a challange to keep contained while im at work... he had a wire fenced yard no way i could keep him in there over, under, through... you get the point. tried running a string of electric wire round the inside of the yard... that just made him want out more! (not that i blame him) as a last resort tied him up with his harness on that worked a couple times till he figured how to wiggle out of it. we are planning on building a proper secure concrete bottom, roofed yard but this will take time any ideas for a temporary solution?? dont know what to do he has been caught by the dog catcher twice now! ( we cant leave him indoors because he chews up the house)

    Oh my, other than a concrete dog run with solid wire walls and a roof, I can't think of any answer that is humane to stop him doing the houdini trick.

    But as you have already said, yep, that takes some time to have built and ready to use.

    not sure what your getting at choppa chop? genuine in regards to what? but anyway yes i was thinking crate, i just hate him, having to be in such a small space but temporarily it might just have to do to keep him safe.
    He is a rescue greyhound who ive had about 9 mounths he just has a few issues when left without me otherwise he is a fantastic dog.
    i only posted to see if anyone had any cheap ideas while the yard gets built, would like not to waste to much money in the mean time.

    A bathroom or laundry would be bigger than a crate. Have things in there he can play/chew etc. If he is such an escape artist, inside is really your main safe option till the run is made.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    Do I dare mention in this day and age of dog education the old-fashioned chain on a runner for a VERY temporary fix?

    Extreme I admit, but better than being taken by the animal control officer which could end up badly if it is the third time.

    as i already mentioned he is a greyhound he therefore cannot be tied using a traditional collar and i have tried using a harness but he gets out of it

    Sorry, I know nothing about greyhounds other than that they are fast.

    I truly can't think of anything. I too hate the idea of a crate for lengthy periods of time, but what else is there? You seem to have tried everything.
