    Ok, Photos of the fence attached.

    Apologies for the overgrown state, We do the gardening fortnightly

    You can see where I have tried to fix it, and probably why it's not working - there were stakes behind the board and bits of wood that aren't there anymore... The rocks go in almost the entire way to the fence, so I can't put star pickets out a bit from it. I've included two photos showing where Batty is getting up on top of the retaining wall. I'm thinking putting a temp fence there may be the best chance. But I'm also worried about Levi getting into our yard and hurting Batty. The last star pickets I put in were dug out by Levi and dragged over to his side of the fence and I haven't seen him yet.

    How handy is hubby? Does he have a drill or know where he could borrow one? I'm thinking go to a timber place and buy a length of really heavy timber, like telephone pole thickness.

    Then get 3-4 lengths of steel that you can screw a bolt onto. Lay the timber along the fenceline , predrill the holes through it, and insert the steel into each hole banging them into the grass until you have just enough to put the bolts on the ends sticking out. The steel will anchor the timber in place, you can remove it all when you leave, and the dog won't be able to push through the hole any more.

    Did I make sense?

    Perfect sense. Would a wooden railway sleeper work? Up on it's side, not flat how they'd use it?

    That sounds pretty good if you use the steel as GAG said! The railway sleepers are pretty thick and heavy!

    Yep it probably would, I think the key is to have something like steel rods to anchor it in place, and the timber need to be heavy! Plus with the rods even if NDNs dog tries to dig under that the rods will stop him!

    Oh and a nice helping of dog sh!t on NDNs side of the sleeper wouldn't go astray!

    Just thinking of Batty for a quick minute here, so sorry in advance if I don't seem empathetic.

    If you have Rescue Remedy, please give some to Batty now .... it's for the shock.

    If you have Arnica, please give some to Batty now ..... it's for the bruising & muscle strain.

    These 2 things are in my "kit of bits" for treating my dogs. If you don't have them, please get them. It will help Batty to start to heal inside & out straight away.

    Now to get back & read through the whole thread to see what's happened ........

    Nothing to apologise for. I've given him a dose of RR, but I don't have any Arnica. Where would I get it?

    He is relaxed and settled, gums are good, not overly panting (it's a little warm indoors at the moment), he doesn't seem stressed in any way shape or form and he is carrying on as normal. He's been outside and gone to the toilet and come back in again as normal. He's not dehydrated either. His neck has only 4 tiny red marks on it - most likely from Levi's canines - and while it's a bit sensitive, he has no objection to me looking at it.

    He's never gone near the retaining wall when Levi hasn't been there, it's not until Levi gets there and starts whining and barking that Batty goes up there.
