New to the forum and seeking a solution for my basset's life threatening issue. We just relocated and he is tearing through the chain link fence and running wild. I have traveled miles in the last two weeks trying to find him and he is crossing highways...literally risking death. I have tried invisible fencing and he runs right through it. I need to find a solution before he gets out and is killed before I find him. We love him so much but don't know what else to try with him. If anyone can help, I will be so grateful. We are willing to try anything!
Thanks so much,
Copper

How does he manage to run through a chain link fence? Are there holes in it? Is it something you can fix?

How does he manage to run through a chain link fence?
some dogs lear to climb them But my quess is he is going underneeth tunneling etc.

3-4 fool wide epoxy coated wire fencing attaced securely to to bottom of the chain link and layed flat on the ground along the perimeter of the fence on the inside and burried 1 or two. When dogs tunnel to get out the do so close to the barrier they are tunneling under. So by adding the burried fencing you are creating a barrier to tunneling and the dog in general do not start the tunnel far enough away from the fence to get under this barrier. Other solution that have worked include adding a electric fence in the chain link Geting a a kennel With a chain link floor The keenels are smaller than a yard but more secure. A kennel with a poored concrete floor works as well. as not letting the dog out unsupervised.

I'd say he should not be out unsupervised/unleashed.

A pair of my girls have started doing the "escape artist" routine. They have not been out in the yard alone for the past three weeks, I'm having to walk them instead.
