Low Fence on a Rental Property?

Hi, all. As the title says, I'm looking to find a solution to keep Nya (currently 9 months old) from hopping the fence on a rental property. I'm currently in the search of a house with a fenced yard, and since I'm not planning to be in the state for more than a couple years, I don't really want to mess with buying a house.
The only problem with the fenced yards in these houses is that they are generally a standard 48 inches (4 feet) or shorter. Is there something I could do to prevent her from jumping over the fence when she sees a bird/squirrel/cat/etc.? I don't have a short fence to test her on right now, so I don't if she would actually try to escape. I only assume she would because, well, she's a husky.
I would love to have a yard for her to hang out in because she loves being outside, but I live in a townhouse that doesn't have a yard, much less a fenced one. I take her to the dog park frequently, and obviously the fences there are super tall. I know she can reach pretty high too by propping/leaning herself on the fence to get to a tree branch.
Basically, am I doomed if I don't have a taller fence?

I never had a problem with my Huskies trying to jump a 3-foot and 4-foot fence. They were much more likely to dig under it. With my newest Husky, I don't leave him outside for more than 10 or 15 minutes at a time, so he hasn't shown any interest in trying to get out of the fenced area.

So where we live, the fences are all limited to 48" or less, so we're about to have the same problem. Ghost thankfully is not a jumper, but Denali may. First off, they won't be left unattended. We live in the boonies and have the potential for rattlesnakes and other critters, so that's kind of a given anyway. Our second line of defense is that Denali has been trained with an E collar, so once our fence is finally installed, we are going to do some training with the collar so he understands the fence is off limits. If you do wind up going that route, make sure you work with a trainer who knows how to do E collar training, it can be done wrong.

"Being the parent of a special-needs pet means living your life constantly poised on the edge of a double-edged sword. On the one hand, you become a fierce defender of the ways in which your little one is perfectly ordinary — all the things he or she can do that are just like what everybody else does. And yet, you never lose sight of how absolutely extraordinary that very ordinariness is, how difficult, remarkable and rewarding that fight to be 'just like everybody else' has been." -Gwen Cooper, "Homer's Odyssey"
