How can I stop my German Shepherd breaking out of her dog lot every time she hears a gun shot?

Question by Chase: How can I stop my German Shepherd breaking out of her dog lot every time she hears a gun shot?
Every time I or one of the neighbors fire a weapon, my dog tries to break out. She has gone over electric fences (shocking herself in the progress) and she has even gnawed through boards and some types of fencing. I have tried punishing her every time she did got out, but that didn’t work at all. She is fully bred and 5 years old. The caliber of the firearm doesn’t matter. 17s and 22s are enough to make her try to escape.

Will the electric fence my family just bought stop my dog from running away?

Question by Mr. Teehee: Will the electric fence my family just bought stop my dog from running away?
My dog Deacon has been escaping our yard and running free ever since we got him back in October. We finally had enough of it last week and we bought an electric fence. We only have the shock on level 2, but I don’t think that will hold him. I don’t want to turn it up to level 3, because…… that would hurt (I tested it 😛 ). Do any of you guys know for certain that an electric fence will stop Deacon from running away 100%?

Nope, but I do know that’s animal abuse. Get a fence or a rope or chain or something, jerk!
