Six foot privacy fence? Piece of cake.

lol. That is awesome. :)) Definately a showcase of what a determined Lacy can and will do. We were perplexed by Chula's escaping our six-foot kennels when we got them. I saw her get out one night and she was practically launching herself totally vertically and just pulling herself over the gate! We had to put pannel on the top so she wouldn't get out.

Let's not teach Paradise how to do that. :-o

Unfortunately I don't think it needs teaching, it's pretty much a standard feature :)) Where there is a will, a Lacy will find a way, trust me!

Ed, we kept our Lacys in a 4-foot fence for two years...then Piper was born. :ymdevil: At five weeks, I found her on top of the dog house, and a few months later she was clearing the six-foot fence.

When we were kids, we boys set up an obstacle course in the backyard, that went over a fence and out of the yard. Our shepherd mix of course wanted to follow, but couldn't make it over the fence. So, fools that we were, we removed the top board, and then helped him over... once. After that, no matter how tall the fence was, he would just climb over. And knowing he could get out, no leash would hold him, as he'd chew through it to leave. He would often show up at the front door, panting, and a few minutes later there would be a knock on the door from animal control. He'd see their truck and hightail it home, with them in his wake.

Cannon will "pogo-stick" behind a fence, his head clearing the top, without trying to leap it. I call him "dufus" when I see things like that. But anyone who shows him how he could jump the fence is dead meat! I better not take him to Texas!

I knew in advance that Lacy's are prone to doing that. I wonder if she'll be able to teach the labs behind us how to do it. :)) She'll be a house dog but I do plan to have a kennel with a top in the back yard as well.

lol. Ox does the same thing! He just bounces in front of the fence. His toes clear it by at least a couple of inches, but he has never jumped out of my yard. :)) I've seen do some awesome jumps over fences on a hunt, though. I'll bet if he wanted what was on the other side of the fence bad enough, he'd be gone in a split second.

I had the camera out a few days ago because the puppies were seeing a pig for the first time. They weren't really doing anything photo-worthy, so I took a few pictures of Piper. They're blurry, but you get the idea.

We need to figure out how Robby's dogs are getting out of his yard. Maybe they are jumping like the dog in the video? Ben could, I'm sure, but Colt is much younger, but maybe he's jumping too. They can sure do it. I have pics of Abe jumping up into to fork of a tree. It's not too high, but after he learned that he could do that, then no tree is safe now!! He will jump about 5 feet high, then climb the rest of the way. Lucy tried one time, but she doesnt have the agility that Abe does. Funny tho, Larry, who jumps up, but not out so much, did learn that he can now jump the cattle guard and now Abe does too, but he learned it from Larry. Yep, you dont want to teach them anything!!

I just love those pics of Piper!!

Yesterday when we were walking, a small oak tree got the dogs attention. Abe jumped up to the fork in the tree, then started climbing. Unfortunately, the limb that he went out on was small and kinda dead! It didnt completely break, but Abe did lose his footing and crashed to the ground, on his back!! Must have hurt, but didnt bother him any! He was right back in the tree. Guess he doesnt know that he doesnt have 9 lives! Lucy then decided that she would climb it. She missed with the first jump and landed on her side. THUD!! She tried again and made it that time. She also went out on the small limb and at one time was almost falling, but managed to save herself. She balanced herself with one hind leg on one branch and the other hind leg on another branch. I could tell that there was nothing in the tree, but the dogs didnt seem to think that!! Larry thought about trying to jump into the tree, but decided against it!! His bulky body probably wouldnt do too good in a small tree!! :))
