One of my dogs has a tendency to escape our yard and go exploring (typical staffy). She was originally going through the fence, but I have fixed that and now since she can't get through she jumps over. It doesn't matter whether I am home or not,she has plenty of toys and our other dog to play with, but she still runs away.
We are on acreage and a new fence is out of order at the moment due to the cost involved in replacing it. She is currently on a runner (while I am a work) until the weekend when we are going to try and make the fence higher, I feel horrible about putting her on it, but its better than her getting hit by a car or stolen.
I am wondering what others have done to try and prevent dogs from escaping? I've looked into the electric barrier fencing, but I am not sure how effective it will be.
Any advice would be great!
