My Dog Is Insane??

I have a 6 or 7 year old Fox Terrier mix and a blue heeler. The terrier is the problem. I have a huge fenced lawn for the both of them to enjoy, however as of late the fox terrier will do anything he can to get out, he rarely leaves my property, never the neighborhood. The heeler always yips a certain way that lets me know the fox is out again. Is he just getting senile, any suggestions please??? I am at my wits end with this dog. I dont know what to do at this point short of chaining or fencing him inside the current fence.

Thanx for any ideas....

You could bury chicken wire along the fence to prevent digging.

Did you say "HE" !!

I would think that somewhere down wind you will find a female in heat !!!(even if HE don't have his "parts" hi might not know that) You could try a "hot wire" around the inside by the ground ( I use a soler one) Most of the time the dogs can sence or whatever they do, thay know its there. (those that dont ... will find out.

I had the same problem with my 3 min pins, I pretty much just put the fear of god in them as pups not to screw with the fence, don't get me wrong I never hit my dogs and they have it better then me. But luckly they were smart dogs and learn quick and do not like it when I yell at them.
But the one dog still thinks he smarter then me and can out wit me. So I have to do daily checks on the fence line to check for digging, but usually the only digging I'm see under the fence is from ground hogs and wild cats, so they can get a quick get away. I learned it is useless to fill the dig holes up with dirt, they just dig it out again. So now I just put some rocks in the holes.

You did not mention if your dog was pushing the fence and getting under or digging to get under. If he is just pushing the fence, you can either go out and buy the poles for the lower part of the fence just like it is on the top section. They do also sell wire to put on the bottom of the fence to make it tight but I seen it on fences and it doesn't appear to do anything. Another thing you could do is, they sell these 2 foot wire things (I'm not exactly sure what they are called) But they are U shaped and are almost as thick as rebar, you could hammer them in the ground attached to the fence so the fence will not move.

If the dog is digging under the fence. I've seen people line there fence with either bricks or rocks. Do the chicken wire thing like chfite said, which is the best out of all the ideas but the hardest to install if you have a big yard.
