Prevent Your Dog Escaping The Yard!

Dogs are surprisingly good climbers, especially when they have enough motivation to leave a fenced area. These motivations include food, comrades or boredom. A loose dog can be hit by a car or picked up by the police. Once dogs understand how to mount a fence, it can be difficult to get them to stop, but it is impossible. You may wonder how to keep your dog from jumping a fence. Keep reading while we go over the answer.

1. See how the dog is going out. Go inside your house and look out of the window. Does he stick his claws in the wire mesh? Does he use objects to jump on and then on the fence? If the dog needs other objects to help get on top of the fence, move them.

2. Keep the dog in the yard only for short periods of time when you are at home and can monitor it. According to the Humane Society of the United States, keeping a dog for hours or days at a time in a yard will result in boredom and will be the main reason a dog will climb a fence.

3. Put your dog in a chest harness. The chest harness will keep a choking dog when attached to a pole.

4. Buy a dog tie-out kit. Whenever he is outside, even if you can watch him, tie him by the harness to a pole or around a very solid tree. Finally, when the dog is happy to stay in the yard, you can stop tying it.

5. Exercise your dog more. A dog needs daily walks of at least half an hour, more time to let off steam in the yard. According to the ASPCA, some breeds like pointers will need two walks a day. If necessary, hire a pet sitter or dog walker to keep him active and exercised. Keep dog toys and chew toys in the yard to make it more interesting and keep the dog at home.

6. Praise the dog for staying in the yard and behaving, especially when playing with the dog in the yard. Yip as you are hurt every time you see the dog starts to climb the fence, but do not hit it. Make sure everyone in the family and visiting friends do not encourage the dog to climb. This is especially important with pit bulls as they are the most common offenders.

Pitbull Behavior

It is difficult to speak of general canine traits because each dog is a unique individual.

With Pitbulls, it is even more difficult since few experts agree on the proper features to actually describe a Pitbull.

A Pitbulls are terriers, they share many aspects of their personality. The Terrier is usually slow to mature, while they are young, most Terriers are rather naughty, cheerful, carefree and full of energy.

As Terriers mature they become closer to their owners and a little less rebellious but never lose that playful and happy attitude.

Pitbulls are also very intelligent, can learn fast and very confident. In training classes they tend to catch lessons faster than other races, this is a good thing because those who are not well trained from the start can be a problem, especially for a novice owner.

As long as you have plenty of room to exercise and let go of that energy you have, a Pitbull can concentrate on his training and become proficient in a variety of activities such as agility, therapy or obedience tests.

They should be well socialized from the start, especially if they are going to live in a family with young children or other pets.

Pitbulls have some problems inherent in their breed just like any other breed. It is always worth repeating that each dog is an independent individual and that much of what is going to dictate his personality is education, environmental factors, and overall health, so what can be a negative or negative trait of a dog may not be present in another.

That said, Pitbulls are delivered to shelters for a variety of problems that many seem to share.

How to tell if a pitbull is mad?

Pitbulls are mad when they become more aggressive due to their great prey instinct, destructive if they become bored or anxious when they do not have enough exercise.

Some may be a little stubborn, a trait that has many Terriers.

Separation anxiety is common in this breed. You must prevent your dog escape from your yard.

The last word about these amazing dogs is that they have suffered a lot because of their reputation as “fighting dogs”, but as dog trainers say, “If a dog is bad, look at the other end of the leash”.

His determination to please the person he loves has been exploited for money, leading to an excess of unjust and unreasonable prohibitions, undeserved reputations, and alarming euthanasia statistics.
