how do i get my dog to stop jumping ON our fence?

.

the dog that i’m having trouble with is my one and a half year old queensland heeler.
she is a very good watchdog because she barks whenever someone walks by our house, but whenever someone walks next to it (to the fence) she starts jumping up at them and barks very aggressively.
our fence isn’t very tall (5-feet) and i’m scared that someday she’s going to jump over it.
literally, if she lifted her body up a little more (because her paws are resting on the top of our fence) she would jump over it. i feel bad for the people walking because they hella s hit bricks haha
usually while she’s doing this i go outside and tell her to stop and then i tie her up for like 5 minutes, and then i untie her (may not be the most ethical way of punishment) but i have no idea how to let her know that that behavior is unacceptable 🙁
so my question is, what is the right way to correct her when she is doing this, and is there a way to stop the jumping altogether?
she is exercised daily, so i don’t think that lack of exercise has anything to do with this.
we have a brick fence lol

    UMM I HAVE A SHIH TZU AND HE IS VERY HYPE .AND WHEN PPL COME OVER HE BARKS AND HARRASSES THEM. AND THE ONE THING I DO IS TAKE HIM FOR A WALK AND GET HIM REAL TIED OUT TILL HE WONT CARE ABOUT ANYONE BEING AT THE DOOR. SO JUST TAKE THE DOG FOR A WALK AND GET HIM REAL TIRED SO HE OR SHE WONT BE SO HYPE AND BARK AT PPL.

    Oh wow..be very careful. We had a dog once that jumped the fence but landed on it. It punctured his chest. Luckily it was to bad..healed up but he did get a scar from it.

    You might want to think about adding a few bricks…..

    You need to go out to the fence when she is doing it. Block her with your body and give her a command. I use "back off". Use your arm, snap your fingers, get direct eye contact, keep moving in front of her and walk her AWAY from the fence.

    That is one way. The other is to teach the ‘come’. Leash her up to 20 to 30 feet lead, stand out there and when she goes for the fence give a ‘come’ command, reel her in. Make her sit at your feet.
    Give praise.

    Be consistent.
