Help! Pitbull jumping and getting over 6ft wood fence.

I have a 4 year old male Pit who has recently started jumping and getting his front legs on the wood fence, He then pulls himself over the fence like it is nothing. I just put aluminum across the top of the fence to the top 2X4 in hopes he would not be able to get a grip when he hits the fence. My idea did not work. He jumped over the fence anyway.

A couple of years ago hekilled one of my beloved Chihuahuas that he had grown up with when he was in the house. Keeping or letting him in the house is not an option due to what he has done before.

I have an electric fence around the lower part of the fence to keep him from digging under the fence.

He is not vicious, but is a sweet boy who loves attention. I spend a lot of time with him daily.

When he gets out, he doesn't go far. Most of the time he just comes to the front door. I open the gate and he goes into the back yard again.

I rescued him from a neighbor who could not keep him. He had several homes before I got him at about 6 months old.

I am concerned if a neighbor out here in the country where we live feels threatened because he is a Pit. someone may harm my boy

What can I do to keep him off of the fence and in the back yard? Anyhelp would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Proper chain set up will keep him in the yard. Also can do a cable run. Or a wielded wire kennel with a top on it of course.

I'd do coyote rollers, aka roller bars. You can either buy them, or if you are handy you can make them yourself. When he gets those front legs on the top of the fence the rollers dump him back into the yard. Your other option is to rig a top to the fence that angles into the yard, the idea behind that one is that if the dog does get it's front paws on the top it has nothing to put it back paws on so it can't get leverage and pull itself up.

Here's a link to a page that has DIY instructions for roller bars. https://yoursassyself.com/roll-bar-f...in-others-out/

Can you separate him from your other dogs? He may be unhappy being only outdoors?
