Can they jump a 4ft fence, or a fence that is made of iron?

Actually a 4ft fence is a mere blip on the screen for a Pyr determined to ignore "Pyr-proof" barrier systems. They climb more so than they jump...metal fences such as chain link do not present a challenge for your dog. It could be 8ft tall... if he feels a need to go he will dig under, climb over, jump your fence if confronted with one. We have noticed our pup very deliberately stroll over to where the gate was latched and try to figure out just how that thing causes the way to the open fields beyond. If you can construct a fence that proves to be Pyr proof, do let the rest of us know! And please, in your search for this miracle, do not resort to electric fencing or shock collars as that would be not good.

Easily they will jump 4 feet unless it is a pup or a dog with mobility issues. We recommend 6 feet, at least. Some dogs are climbers and/or diggers so the bottom needs to be secured in that case.
