If you’re a dog owner with a backyard, you know that one of the biggest fears you have is your dog getting out of the yard and running away. Some of the biggest anxieties we have revolve around our pups leaving home and running into the street or running anywhere we can’t find them.
One dog owner has come up with a fantastic solution to this problem.
Julia Morley adopted her dog Lu-Seal from a shelter in Pittsburgh where she was thin and tiny and could barely walk.
Due to her size, the fence in her yard was a big issue.
“It never occurred to me that she would fit through the bars of the fence when I picked it out, but it became clear as soon as it was installed that it was going to be a problem,” Morley said.
Asking social media for advice, one commenter helped Morley come up with a solution.
Morley shared the problem on her Instagram page and one of the followers suggested a “safety spoon” on Lu-Seal’s back to prevent her from being able to fit through the fence.
While it’s hilarious, it totally works!
“I attached it to her harness with Velcro cable ties and it worked like a charm.
We only used it as a temporary solution. The landscaper came back a week later and installed puppy guards on the fence,” Morley said.
