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.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

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!
