claim the fence
Thank you for your great suggestions! I wouldn't say my dog is barking out of boredom; she gets plenty of exercise and stimulation. A one hour power walk/run in the morning that lasts an hour and a walk at night that goes about a half hour. She is never alone here and can go in and our of the house into the fenced in yard at will. The fence barking is really the only issue for the moment and your suggestions of claiming the fence seem to make sense(to me, not the dog!) I'll keep you posted.
