    how do you know they will hurt her...have you met the other dogs in person? Staffies play with a lot of sound and growling...doesn't make them vicious!

    Agree... I have a pug x cav and a maltese x shih tzu and when they play they make noises like they're killing each other.

    As for your dog running up and down the fence it sounds to me like she's bored.

    Have you taken her to puppy school or anything? Does she get socialised with other dogs at all?

    Usually your dog will meet other dogs on daily walks, Puppygirl.
    Are you taking her for walks each day or evening? Try and choose a route where other dogs are being walked, and that will certainly help with the solcialisation.
    Some places have designated parks or areas where dogs are free to run and congregate - that would be a great opportunity for your dog to socialise and get more used to toher dogs also.

    She is young, she is energetic, she wants to know what is going on over the fence, she wants to join in. These are all normal behavioural things for a puppy of that age.
    She really must be getting a heck of a lot more exercise IMO than she is possibly getting now.
    When she is running up and down the fence, what do you do to stop her?

    If they have bitten someone and that person required stitches, then chances are they will be seized anyway. Every hopsital or doctor visit related to dog bites is recorded.

    Have you comnsidered a barrier along the fence line? Something that will stop her getting close to the fence?

    You just walk out and say 'leave it'?

    Not getting far, are you?
    Do you try and engage her in another activity with you? See how that goes. Once she leaves the fence and does something else, give her attention and praise.

    As a last resort, there is the water/hose trick you could try every time she does this running along the fence, but I am REALLY doubtful about that, as I honestly feel it can cause more problems than it fixes.

    Does this pup come into the house with you? Or is she solely an outside dog? That could explain a bit.
