He only jumps out when a person is going down the road now he does have a tendency to be a nipper and for some reason even though we properly socialized him as a pup he still wants to be overly protective of the family and go after people. But I feel he has no reason to jump the fence to go after someone who is about 300 yards from the house. And he's 3 if this makes a difference with anything. But I see where you are coming from with him thinking coming home is a bad thing. We're going to stop doing that.because obviously it is not working.
    Sorry I can't help you more. Good luck. Hopefully others will be able to help you.

    OK... so the more I share on here the more I begin to realize that I really am a red neck :roll: Any ways...here goes...I've never owned a "little dog" before but it seems to me that if you rigged up something to your fence like 2ft chicken wire angled back into your yard....Think jail fence....the dog couldn't do an up and over escape and would then be safe...I'd think eventually the dog would realize it couldn't do that any longer , lose interest and you could take the wire back down.

    OK...redneck confessions...I was thinking hot wire too...then I remembered how I got my lab to stop running off and realized that I poped him in the butt with my sons little bb gun ( it stings but won't break the skin).. He Came RUNNING back home like "something got me Momma" and I held him and loved him for a while He was still small.. like 6 months and he's stayed close ever since!

    Then I realized we were talking about a yorkie and that my method (madness :roll: )wouldn't be suitable!
