My dog gets out of my yard. What can I do?

Dogs can get out of yards by jumping, digging, breaking through old fencing, or simply walking through an unclosed gate. 

Some ways to prevent this from happening include making sure that you do not have things close to the fence that a dog can get up on to jump the fence, such as tables, landscape, or unwanted items. Check your fencing regularly for any breaks, looseness, or holes. If your dog is a digger, you may need to bury some fencing under the ground to stop your dog from escaping. If you have gates that open easily or are hard to keep shut, you may need to put a lock on them so that your pet is secure. Your local Animal Control Officers have many ideas about keeping your animals home and safe. Give them a call—they are happy to help.
