Can a Mini Schnauzer jump a 4 or 5 ft fence?

by Frances

I have a 1 yr. old Mini Schnauzer. I'm in the process of having a fence built so he can enjoy the backyard. He's been "fixed" and he has a play mate, a Yorkie, also fixed. Is my understanding that Minis can jump high. How tall should the fence be,4,5 or 6 ft.?
Thanks

Height of fence

I would go for 6 feet to protect your wee dogs from bigger dogs outside who could be straying? It would be much more protective even from people who steel dogs from gardens? I sound negative but better safe than sorry. X

high!

Max used to be able to jump/scramble stone walls which were 6ft high. It depends on whether he could scramble it, but I would go for 6ft to be on the safe side, 4ft definitely won't do it in my opinion.
