Hello everyone 😊

Recommended Posts

I thought this looked like a really cool website. Didn't know that they had this or I probably would have joined a long time ago.  I had a question and was wondering if someone could help me out? I have 3 huskies and was thinking about putting up a good sized fenced in area for them so they can run. I have a kennel and haven't had any  problem with my other two, but I recently got a new pup. I was wondering if anyone has had a husky scale an eight foot chain link fence? I know they can go over a six foot if they are determined enough, but I couldn't really find anything on an eight.

We have one who can jump a 7 foor from standstill, so could probably manage 8 foot at a run - but chooses not to jump our 6 foot (but we're always out with them when in the garden, keeping an eye on them!). I do know someone who had two that climbed an 8 foot (wasn't helped that it was to get the chickens next door) - the solution was a 6 foot fence with and additional 2 foot angled inwards and that worked

Thanks for the information! 😁 I will have to ask the people who are going to be putting up my fence if he has the extension that goes inward. That's a great idea! They are such escape artists. I don't know how many times I've had to chase huskies 😆. Too funny about the chickens next door. I bet that did make them want to get over that fence.

If it's chain link I wouldn't put it past them,  they're actually very good climbers 

Thank you! They definitely are great climbers.

welcome!  I agree with chain link you never know. Mine will go to dog parks with shorter 4 or 5 ft chain link fencing, but i am right there and they are usually interested in running since i dont have a yard...but it still makes me nervous.   Left alone for any length of time I think almost no fence is husky proof!  But if just short times I think at min a 6 ft privacy fence with cement blocks at the bottom as they can easily dig underneath the fence.  I know that's very expensive for a large yard though. 

 

If you do stick with chain link, I think as long as you are always out there with them you might be alright
