I have a beautiful TWC that just turned 2 years old a few days back. She is my best friend , but we are having some major issues. First, she has found every way to get out of our yard, digging under fences, opening gates and jumping them. At this point when she goes out side we have to put her on a chain, and I hate that. Next I also have trouble with her jumping on people come to the house. It's not just one jump, she gets herself so excited, and it takes a solid 20 minutes to get her behavior anywhere near manageable again. Please help! Thank you!

I wish I could help, however, we have the same issue with our TWC. He seems "untrainable". I will keep looking back for a response to this to see if anyone has any helpful hints!

Electric fence is what I had to do for my Treeing Walker Coonhound. Fence charger, wire, around $100, dog got loose and got hit by a car $480.

WE have 14 TWC and love them all. Except for two they are all hunting dogs. The other two are young and will need training. For the jumping, it is one of their natural behaviors. When they hunt, they will follow their prey even up a tree. They are terrific climbers. They are also VERY curious. They want to see everything and will try and get up close to see. And they are extremely intelligent. If they are trying to get out maybe they are not getting enough exercise or stimulation. You have to put alot of time into these dogs.
