What can I do to keep our dog from jumping a brick wall 3-4 feet?

by Cindy
Our yard is 3-4 ft. higher than our neighbors. The top of the brick wall is even with our yard. The rest of our yard is fenced but I don't know what to do near the wall. There is a sidewalk and steps at the end of the wall

    You can put something a bit spiky around the periphery to deter the dog from getting close enough to jump over. Good luck!

    Perhaps one of the dog deterrent sprays along the wall might be worth a try.

      Training your dog is the only long-term solution, OP.

      I love my dog so much but it constantly did the things that irked me most. It would chew on things that it shouldn’t or jump up and down out of the blue. Whenever I put on the leash, it would pull on it. Whenever it was out of the house, it would continue digging on the ground - I wish I could tell what it was looking for down there. All the things it did left me feeling depressed as if I failed it monumentally.

      But since I discovered Brain Training for Dogs and applied the system offered, it now behaves the way a beautiful dog I always expect of.

    Some type of shelf with plants at the top of the wall might be a deterrent.

  • Anything that gives the dog a visual barrier will do. Plants, lattice, whatever you think might work and enhance your space.

    I have no experience with them, but my son claims electric fence things work 100%. I mean the ones that you lay a wire on the ground and the dog gets a shock when he crosses it. They are very low voltage but dogs don't like it. I know - it sounds mean, but it is going to be meaner when your neighbors start complaining and you have to keep him tied up or in the house, or your dog gets loose and run over by a car.

    Push in the ground a row of poles next to the fence.
