Secure the yard
Most dogs would naturally prefer an open habitat to roam and
explore, rather than to live behind walls and fences. Dogs have a natural
exploratory drive to check out their environment.
Dogs are social animals, and when left in isolation the only
social contact may be elsewhere.
Reasons for Escaping and Roaming
Yard not secure
Never has the opportunity to explore outside their
Life looks more interesting on the outside
Seek out social contact with other dogs or
When dogs don′t have a routine of getting out of the house
and yard they may attempt to escape their confines to explore. Many dogs if
left in isolation will seek out social contact with people or other dogs, and often
seek out a school or playground to be in the company of children.
Unaltered male dogs will tend to roam in search of a female
dog in heat that they can smell from great distances.
We do not recommend the buried perimeter, Invisible fence, or any type
of underground fence system.
There are several concerns with these types of systems.
Dogs can develop behavior problems like
aggression and increased levels of frustration.
If a dog does escape the yard, it will be
deterred from entering the yard due to the unpleasant experience it has learned
is a result of getting close to the boundary
These systems do not deter other dogs from
entering the yard
These systems do not deter people or children from
entering the yard.
If the dog is left unattended on an unfenced
property − people may enter property and meet an unrestrained territorial dog,
and or aggressive dog
To avoid problems with dogs escaping and roaming, secure your
yard, do not leave your dog unattended in an unsecured yard, and take them out
for walks and play regularly.
Dogs that have a predictable schedule of outings and quality
time with the family are much less motivated to escape.
If your dog does escape, when you gain control over him
again do not punish him or show any anger, nor shower him with affection. Punishing
him will only discourage him from coming back the next time and giving him
affection or treats will just reward and encourage the behavior. It is
generally far better to act indifferent and aloof.
Secure The Yard
If you need to secure the yard from escape, do a complete job the first time. If the yard is secured only slightly better after an escape the dog can learn that if they persist in their endeavors at escaping they can succeed. Eventually they may hurt themselves in their attempts. Far better they learn right away that the yard is escape proof.
Inc.'s "Coyote Roller"
Features of the Coyote Roller
A Simple Concept That Yields
Coyote Rollers make it difficult
for dogs, coyotes, and other animals to gain the "foothold" they need
to pull themselves up and over the top of an enclosure. The Coyote Roller is
designed to freely rotate with as little as 2 ounces of pressure, and yet
withstand 250 lbs.+ of weight in the center of a 4' roller.
