Not a fan of leaving dogs loose in yards because aside from potentially jumping a fence there's usually all sorts of shit for them to get into, eat, injure or kill themselves on...but if for whatever reason you can't set up a chainspot, hotwire like Catchrcall said (may not work depending on how determined the dog is to get out) or set up coyote/roll bars. More importantly, give your dog things to do while he's out there. Dogs need mental stimulation, and if you don't provide it, especially for a bulldog, they'll create their own.

I use it mainly for just discouraging the urge to jump my fence. I will supervise them while they shock themselves a couple times. It does wonders for changing a dog's attitude toward which side of the fence they should be on.

Are those coyote roll bars the white pvc tubes mounted horizontally across the top of the fence?

Ugh I'm having the "jump" problem myself now..

He jumps out standard chain link in 3 different spots.

So... The obvious choice is to buy a chain, hook it to one of the fences problem solved..

Wrong. He hated being chained up and totally disregards the fact he started to hurt himself by tugging relentlessly.

That mark under his collar is from where the part of his chain hooked on to his collar rubbed up against him so much in a week he rubbed it raw. Took about two weeks to heal up. So now I just crate him until I can get a good harness around Christmas.

A little off topic, but what's that red welt on your dog's chest?

That's where the clip on his chain rubbed up against him. I tried chaining him up for a week, and within that time the clip rubbed his fur raw.

So like I said in waiting until Christmas now so I can buy a good leather harness and then I can chain him up with no worries of it hurting him again.

Oh, I see. You might want to consider a durable padded harness instead of leather. Stillwater has some good ones. If he's prone to yanking on the chain, a leather one may just cut/chafe his skin still, especially under the armpits. I've never seen someone use a harness on a chain spot though.

Yeah was gonna go with Stillwaters harness that he can also weight pull with, I'm pretty sure it's padded.

But my main concern was having the clip on the back. But you brought up a good point with the chafing/cutting due to the excessive tugging.

Don't use a harness on a tie out get a 1.5 or 2 inch collar

Sent from my XT1031

How will that help with the clip rubbing at the end of the chain?
I wanted the harness so it's on his back and if he pulls it won't rub him raw again.
