  • The only thing I can think of is to not leave them outside unattended. Maybe someone else will have more suggestions.

  • put chicken wire down in front of the fence. They don't like the feel of wire under their feet and are unlikely to launch skywards from it. If it's chain link, they're probably climbing it so putting plastic paneling in front of it so they can't climb should help.

  • Dogs belong do that, bring them in and then train the dog to stay INSIDE the fence when he goes out for a pee.
