    In this day and age, a gap in your fence is just one of the problems that you will have to contend with if your dog lives outside.

    As well as the possibility of escaping, your dog could be stolen, abused and attacked by other animals if it is left outside. You are obviously concerned about your dogs safety, to ensure this your dog should live inside the house.

    If you, like many other dog owners leave your dog when you go to work. Please take your dog out for a LONG walk before you leave it. Try to get home at lunchtime and pay a dog walker to take it for additional walks. You must also rush home from work to take it for another walk. If you cannot sort your fence out, you should not allow your dog into the garden when you are not with it.

    A 10 in. gap is huge.
    Sink another post or two to close the gap.
    Consider using chain that does not stretch and exercise your dog as often as you can.

    Try a bigger fence,.

    Do you have any female dogs around your area that you know of?. If so then one might be on heat. A male dog can smell that from about 3 miles away. It will soon ware off.

    try new fencing that is buried several inches underground. this will prevent him from getting under the fence. then, have the gates refitted so they fit closer together. You may also try completely blocking that gate if possible.

    How tall is your fence? Are you sure he’s getting thru the opening and not jumping over it? You may have to teather him on a long line if he’s to be kept in the backyard unsupervised.

    Try getting some of that bright color netting that they usually use at construction sites. It is make of a very heavy duty plastic. One of the dog rescue places that I visit often uses it to keep one of their escapee dogs from getting over the fence. Unless your dog is a chewer, it should work.
