  1. Tips for how to make a cheap fence?

    Dog Gear and Supplies
    A few years ago, a tree fell on my fence. Then a huge branch fell on it. Just recently, another tree fell on it. It's not really fixable anymore. I'd like to just replace it, and I'd like to do that as cheaply as possible. Anyone know how to make a cheap, easy fence? Or what to make it out of? I...
  2. Neighbor's Dogs Comming Through Fence

    General Dog Discussion
    My neighbor's (who I want NOTHING to do with because the are drug dealers) keep letting their 3 small aggressive dogs dig under and/or chew up the bottom of my 6ft privacy fence so that they can escape their trash heap of a backyard.

  6. The fence is installed!

    General Dog Discussion
    I don't have a pic yet, but when we got home last night, my new fence was all finished. This means I now have a pretty big enclosed space in the yard where Cobber can run and play without being on-leash.

  8. Dog jumping the fence

    Dog Training and Behavior
