we have 4 dogs the 2 older ones are great, the 2 pups who will be a year old next month figured out that they can jump our 4 foot fence in the backyard so now instead of letting them go outside when ever they need to go potty we have to let them out so we can watch them. i don't like shock collars so what else can i do in the middle of winter to let them roam but stay inside the fence? any help?Answer Question
We have a zip line from our garage to a tree so our dog can roam the yard freely. Are you able to do something like that?

I have also tried stringing flags on a line at the top of the fence to detoured them from going there. But a zip line is good if you provide a long enough line for them to run. I also put up a tether ball pole and hung one for them to play with. Provide something for them to do at play time so they won't get Bord while they are out there. Big balls to chase, like a beach ball are great but the hard ones. Give them as many outside toys to keep them busy. You can even tthrow the balls from the door way! The only other thing is a hot wire (for dogs) at the top of the ffence. It will only take one time for them to never try jumping again and it won't HURT them. I have done that for larger dogs that want to go awol. Good luck, and may something work for you and your pups.
