Default Free: Chocolate Lab to right home

Iím very sad to do this , but my Chocolate Lab Harley, has learned to climb chain link , he has been letting himself out and going down the street to neighbors and going in there doggy door, he is almost 6 years old , I have owned him 4 years, he 100 lbs of pure sweetness. Loves to swim,will fetch but not worked with,Has been a big ole pet, he is still in tact . I will only let him go to a home with a privacy fence & allows him to come in regularly for love, he is house broke for the most part, occasional accident , he is registered I never transferred any paper work, please donít get offended if I donít agree on your place, I am picky and owe it to him to find a great home, again must have privacy fence !! Or lots of acres and no roads near. Thanks, Adam, Located in Van Texas . I have tried obedience collers but he still goes every day,my options are very limited at this point, I will not put him on a chain so I have to do something very very soon.

Run a few strands of hot wire on your chain link. They make insulators that attach to chain link. Run a strand along the bottom, one about knee high, and one along the top.

I agree with this. Itís hard to find a good dog. If you really like him and want to keep him I donít think youíve explored all your options. A good family dog is worth spending a few bucks on!

No worries. Everyone will learn after the first time. I sure did!

Yep. I would at least give this a go. After the first hit or two he likely wont try it again anyhow. Just leave the wire up and turn the box off.

We had a small dog that would dig under the fence and escape our back yard. I set up a single strand hot wire near the bottom of the fence. She touched it once or twice and never went near it again. I had small kids at the time so I turned it off, and never had a problem with the dog digging out again.

If you are friends with the dog door person, ask if you could come over and wait . Have wife let him out. If he comes through the dog door through a glass of water in his face and do some loud yelling to scare at him. Might take a couple times. This should discourage him from coming back.

Use pvc to run the wire through. My dogs can jump the fence but I put that up years ago and don't even turn it on anymore. Lol. They learn their lesson pretty quick

It will work! A few years back one of our boxers liked to dig out. Put one up and he hit it twice. I turned it off and he never dug out again.
