    Default He can jump now!

    Lucky we don't leave Oskar in the yard when we go out. OH is over the fence helping the neighbour, and Oskar was barking and carrying on, then just decided to give it a go, Wham and over he went!! I was watching him out of the kitchen window!!

    Ohhh no. That sucks.

    Our old dog Lennox was a jumper, and it wasnt even any good having 6ft fences, I swear he could jump them without even touching the top.

    That sucks! I'm so happy we don't have this problem. I used to have a horse who used to jump the fence just because she could. She sometimes didn't even bother jumping but simply walked through. I can't even count how many fences I had to replace over the years. After 20 odd years fighting I gave up. I placed her in a paddock with a fairly low fence far away from any roads and just let her go for a wander every now and again ... she always returned when she got hungry or bored without her mates. Silly thing...

    Lol Harley use to be able to get his head over a 6ft fence. And as we know Bella is quite the skilled jumper! Lol keep an eye on him cause he knows he can do it now! Lol

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    Mojo couldnt jump if he wanted to. It's somthing i've tried to stop him from doing so that he dosnt cause himself any injuries, now or in the future. I'm so paranoid about hip displaysia and other bone issues.

    He is big enough now to just step up on the bed one foot at a time. LOL.

    Hopefully it's not going to become a issue for you with him escaping.

    I feel your pain, I never knew how fortunate I was to own a dog who never escaped despite what he was capable of until now that I own one who can escape from everything I have put her in to date.

    Sammy was my only dog for 2 years, and I guess through him I became a bit complacent. He's the sort of dog that will still be in your backyard when you get home even if someone left the gate open... and yes he's an entire male Doberman cross with high drives who can clear 6ft fences when he wants to. In addition, if you want to stop him from passing through an area, just put a box in the way, and he just doesn't bother challenge it.

    Then along comes Zoe. There's no such thing as deterrents. Either she physically can't get through something or she can and you can be assured that she will test it. At 13-14 weeks old and already approaching the 20kg mark, she can get through fairly decent fences. She has bent metal bars that I can't with my hands, pulled herself over 1.5m high obstacles and has actually chipped her baby canine teeth from trying to escape from places. She knows how to open doors and can already reach all handles just by standing on her hind legs. She is not at all phased by unstable ground, tight squeezes or falling from great heights. Anyone who has read my introduction will know that she is the result of a Rhodesian Ridgeback escaping onto the farm of a Doberman, and previously I really didn't have much time for their excuses - I thought they were negligent owners for letting her get out. But now, I have reconsidered. If Zoe can do this at only 3 months old, imagine what her mother at almost 50kg was capable of :s After spending several $100's on fencing material, I have reached the conclusion that I am going to need to invest in a kennel run with a roof to contain her whilst I'm out before she's an adult. The good is, whilst I'm home she just wants to be as close to me as possible, she's currently serving as a foot warmer
