If I adopt a retired greyhound (see Im feeling sad ) they have massive power, jumping 1 3/4m from standing. Our fences are 4 feet and 5 foot in places so need extra height where there are no high hedges to qualify for ownership.
To all the 02 D I Y geeks - what can you suggest as attractive , easy ways to block the jumper from heading for neighbour's cats !! About 40ft Comic ideas for fun are also welcome

According to this article @Jenny105
"Due to their size and strength, adoption groups recommend that fences be between 4 and 6 feet tall, to prevent Greyhounds from jumping over them"
A great picture here of one jumping https://www.reddit.com/r/Greyhounds/comments/71r8u6/look_at_this_greyhound_jump_i_had_no_idea_they/
You can get this trellis to go on top of your existing fence. It's from B&Q

It depends on what type of fence and post you have now.
If a wooden post then you could extend them by using another one either bolted or screwed on.
If concrete posts and you have already reached the top of them then I am not entirely sure. Perhaps by putting a couple of pieces of wood on either side of the existing fence panel to hold a trellis in place.
If you are not the DIY/garden type then it might be worth finding a local trades person to come and have a look.

Good thinking .........
I found some trellis I'd bought earlier , to keep out neighbours bird loving cat . And had 2 fan trellis leaning against the fence
What do you think , needs better attachments but does it look attractive enough and would it do the job. If so I'll buy some more trellises and poles.

OR~ this could happen if he/she couldn't get over it !!!
He he luv it......... I think when boredom sets in they find other things to do. After all if you are no longer chasing little furry things round n round in circles what else is there to make life have a buzz when youre stuck in a garden !!

Looks great @Jenny105! I'd love to hear if you're made any progress with the potential adoption of a retired greyhound? It sounded very exciting
