Houdini - the dog
This is not a hunting dog. She's just a sheep dog, and we don't have any sheep. She's a really good dog.
Recenly, she's figured out how to escape the back yard. It hasn't been a big deal, because once she escapes, she just stays in the front yard. Often times she'll start barking at the gate so someone will let her back in the back yard.
But, still, she's not supposed to be in the front.
i put up a camera to try to figure out how she's doing it. Unfortunately, all i'm getting are pictures of the sprinklers, a fox, and some robins. i do get pictures of the dog too -- just not how she's escaping!
We did watch her this morning, and I think we have it figured out. All the way in the back corner we have an old wood pile. She climbs the wood pile and steps over onto the cinder block wall. She then proceeds to walk, like a cat, all the way to the front of the yard along the wall, and jumps down.
Any suggestions on preventing this? Maybe just place an obstacle on top of the wall (5 gallon bucket)?
