Thanks to all for this month's entries!
|1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.|
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

|Subject: Best fence for a husky Mon Sep 14, 2020 11:03 pm|| |
Hi! I need some good advice on fencing. I have two huskies, a male and a female, and they have learned how to get over my six foot high fence. The part of the fence that runs along my neighbors is chain link, and they have/had chickens. My dogs have gotten over there twice and have killed 47 chickens.
As of right now I am only taking them outside on a leash and lots of runs/walks, but this isn’t a permanent fix. What has everyone done for fencing to keep them in?

I use invisible fence - we live next-door to cows, chickens, pigs, ducks. They have a 4 ft welded wire fence around their pasture. I attached my fence wire to that, dogs don't go past the correction boundary (I have it set at 10 ft. Out from the wire)
I use the PetSafe YardMax system and purchased an extra collar to go with it. You need to teach the dogs what to do when they hear the warning beep, once you see that they turn away from the boundary at the warning beep then you
can add the correction. Given the previous, successful experience with prey (chickens) I would use a hefty correction level.
Or. You could buy an electric fence charger, and install a full fledged agricultural type electric fence. I have one of those for my beeyard to keep our bears (a 2 Joule charger puts out a HEFTY shock!). Though I tried to discourage the dogs from testing the fence (and the cat
) everyonevhad to try it and now no one goes near it.

so what i use wouldnt work for you but my recommendation is to put about a foot or so on the top that leans inward. My neighbor has chain link with 3 wires that are angled inward and electrified. Basically like a backstop. Or a pvc roller. Look at wolfdog/ wolf type fencing ideas.
Im so glad mine are diggers not jumpers

Skye used to jump 6 ft fences like hurdles, I built her a pen with galvanise sides and then a tarpaulin thing over the top and That just stopped her jumping all fences
