Greetings:
The longer I have two dogs, the more I want a fenced yard. Big time.

My neighborhood has certain rules that must be obeyed they lean in a natural, woodsy direction for the most part. The main fence must be wood, and privacy fences are not allowed. I need to find out the height restriction.
The cheapest way to go is split-rail, which can then be lined with that wirey garden fencing.
Queenie has shown herself to be quite smart and quite the escape artist, and although I don't plan to leave the dogs out when I'm not there, I don't want her escaping ever because, for one thing, while she's smart in many ways, she also likes to chase cars.
Any tips for the best fencing/containment system?

IMO the easiest way to combat fence climbers & jumpers is to install an invisible fence just inside of the physical one. I've never actually seen a hot-wired fence but I know they exist with people putting (I think) live wire running across the top of the fence. If you have restrictions like "no privacy fence" then there's a very strong possibility that a height restriction of 4' goes along with it.
