One of my biggest fears when dogsitting is having a puppy escape from me! And no, not from a walk, but the owner's backyard. Some small dogs love being curious and sometimes end up through wide fences (or holes). The Puppy Bumper is here to keep your dog from escaping.
The Puppy Bumper is the perfect solution for curious pups! The stuffed collar sits comfortably around your dog's neck. Since it adds extra padding to your little dog's body, they won't be able to get through a fence rail or balcony rail.
When Dogs Jump Over Fences
American Kennel Club recommends a coyote roller for dogs that jump over fences. A coyote roller rolls like a rolling pin, so when your dog tries to gain footing to jump, they won't be able to.
They're designed to keep coyotes from jumping over your fence but will also work to keep dogs from jumping over as well.
A five-star review: "Our Labrador is an escape artist and routinely climbs-jumps over our 6 foot gate. This is the first thing we've tried that she hasn't been able to outsmart. I wish we'd tried it sooner."
DIY Coyote Roller
If you have the tools and are willing to buy the equipment, consider making a DIY coyote roller. It may be worth it if you have a lot of fencing to cover! Or reach out to your local handyman and see if you can pay him to help build you a similar device to keep your dog safe and sound.
It looks like a fun project!

The Puppy Bumper is for little pups with neck sizes between 10 to 13 inches, so keep that in mind when you order for your new puppy! The neck hole should be the perfect size for a Maltese or Yorkie.
You can order the bumper in two different patterns, pink dots, and black and white gingham print. (The polka dot print is too cute.) Machine wash the dog collars with no problem! They'll survive plenty of washes without any wear.
The paw print design is adorable. This is exactly what your (tiny) extra active dog needs. Keep dogs safe, dog mommas!
Here's a collar to use on a rainy day! Keep your little Houdini on the right side of the fence, y'all.
