|My beagle Kya is 5 years old now. I got her when she was 4 and she had had some training, but not a lot. We have been working on some, but not as much as I should.
Here is what I need help with. She scales fences! I unfortunately don't have a fence at this time, but am hoping to get one soon. However, everytime I take her somewhere where the person has a fence, she scales it and off she goes! It's her beagle nose that gets her to do this, she catches a whiff of something or someone goes by and she's off!
I just don't know what to do with her. This past weekend a friend of mine watched her (and her brother Squirt) while I was gone for the weekend. She brought them over to her house so they could run around for a while and stretch their legs and about 15 mins later, she was gone. She was gone for 4 hours (the longest she has ever run off) and scared the heck out of my friend!~
Has anyone else run into this situation and found something that works? I thought about an invisible fence, but even her vet thinks she'll blow right thru it.
Any help and suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.
