A new dog fence should be of sufficient height to discourage jumping. If the fence isn't high enough, consider a jumping harness that prevents the dog from leaping, or install "barbed wire arms," those angled steel extensions for the top of the fence.

Some dog fencing is rather expensive, so don't be shy about fencing a small area for the dog even if your yard is huge. Emphasize length; a dog run 10 feet wide and as long as possible in your yard allows the dog to run up and down and exercise nicely.
