My dog jumps the fence. Is there such thing as a fence awning for dogs?

I want to buy something I can attach to my existing wood fence that bends into the yard. My dog jumps the fence, and I don’t want to use an electrical solution. Anybody have anything like this? If so, where can I buy?

I thought I saw something online where it attaches to the top of the fence, on the inside, and it bends inwards at a 45 degree angle.

We have a six foot privacy fence made of cedar, so it would be strong enough to attach something onto. Our golden retriever is quite the escape artist.

    Putting that type of overhang can be dangerous for your dog. I suggest you add more hieght to your fence to stop your dog from jumping over. I have 5 Labradors 2 are trained in agility. I have a 6 foot stockade fence and 1 can get over it and 6 ft steel in the back. I added 2 feet of steel fence to the top and now she cant get over. If I put on an overhang she would definately get hurt. Drop me a line if you need some idea how to do this.

    There is a harness just for this problem. The way the harness fits the dog they can not jump high enough to jump a fence. Ask you vet or go to your local pet store and ask about a no jump harness! They may have to order one for you but it will be worth it! We use one for our dog years ago and the first time we put it on him and he tried to jump the fence he was very disapionted!! ha ha We only had to use it for a month or so and now he dose not even try anymore

    Good Luck

    You can get some wire fencing and attach it to the top of your pre-existing fence. It doesn’t look pretty but it’s cheap and it works. I had the same problem with my dog a few years ago. Now he’s old and he doesn’t jump higher than 4 feet anymore.

    Anyway, you can get it at any hardware store, Home Depot, Lowes, etc.

    The best thing to do is build a fully enclosed dog run (With a top). Home depot sells 6×6 cyclone fence panels that clamp together (They also have a panel with a door).

    If you use an awning, chances are the dog will just rip right through it

    well its made for cats but I think what you envision…..I know nothing of effectiveness or safty.
    Now I DID use a homemade trick of adding a 2 ft section of light wire NOT pulled tight. the dog in question climbs up the fence & the loose wire on the top bends in & dumps em back in the yard…- that of course will only work if the dog climbs the fence or catches onto the top
