I had to act like I left the house to figure out how my 3 previous dogs were escaping from their pen.
I'd put 3 into the pen when leaving and they would always be out when I got home.

She was able to flip the latch with her nose.
Then to act innocent she would stay in there while the other two would cause trouble.

My neighbor suggested spraying her with a water hose as she's going over. I think this is a great idea because she cannot stand water. After he told me that, I put her in the backyard, called for her from the other side of the fence, and squirted water on her. Mean, I know, but maybe she'll associate going over the fence with water?

Another thing I've got to be more diligent about is using the wireless collar (i.e. shock collar). No mean comments, please. I went through that once before.

Whenever I do use the collar, which beeps a warning first, she's good about not going out of the yard, whether it's over or under. So, I'll probably go out and buy a couple more batteries and start using it again.

Ohhhhhhhh yes I remember the collar forum( I was in on that one)I'm with you on using them. Anyway the hose sounds like a good idea. It is amazing what dogs can think of to do themselves, But if you tried to teach him to jump the fence he would never do it. Good luck and keep us posted.
