6 Foot Fence is no obstacle - HELP!
So my little black retriever mix Cheyenne, 16 in tall at the shoulder and weighs 30 lbs, can scale my 6 foot wood fence without blinking. She is routinely jumping out of the yard into neighbors yards, one of which does not have a complete fence on the other side of their house. But since the fence is no obstacle it really doesn't matter. She has on several occasions gone from walking out the door straight over the fence with me right behind her telling her NO. Chasing squirrels most of the time. Then to add to her fun, she jumps back in our yard.
We have put up arms at an angle and initially had draped it with ground cloth thinking it would be a visual barrier that would hopefully stop her. She simply jumped up until she had torn the cloth and then jumped over in that spot.
Next we put up pieces of wooden lattice. Today she jumped over that, unfortunately then she couldn't jump back into our yard because the lattice was in the way.
I am out of ideas. Anyone have any suggestions?
