I was thinking along the lines that Kyloburnese is.
What are your posts and how far apart?
A taller fence might help but might not. I've seen a lot of videos of dogs figuring out how to escape...even climbing trees to get over fence.

here are a few ideas Peace in the Yard: 7 Ways To Dog Proof Your Fence | notes from a dog walker

and a picture of what I was thinking

Exactly, Mr. John. That was my thinking with a more solid texture for the wall (minus the very base for wind and dust flow) and a lip punting inwards made of some kind of mesh. There are many to make that happen using what you already have.
keep us posted.

A couple of points to consider (which may have been mentioned before)
while the height is important, so is a lip pointing inwards by 2ft dogs can't walk up side down so 10ft could actually be around 7-8ft then have a lip that curls under. Don't use mains electricity for the fence but instead consider a device that uses a coil to build up a charge that is recharged every 1 sec that pulses this can be achieved using a 6 volt electric fence
battery. Good Luck and keep us posted please

I have a similar problem with my border collie who gets so excited about the dogs next door he has gone over our 4 foot fence once and came really close a few other times.

I don't allow my dogs outside without a person being outside with them. Also they are not content to just "hang out" outside either, they expect some active interaction, tossing a toy or frisbee or playing fetch or doing some agility with some of the equipment I've been collecting.

My trainer suggesting having a 20 foot lead (at least) attached so I would have something to grab onto, and that has saved Loki a few times. He jumps up to the top of the 4' fence and gains purchase with is feet and goes over. I hurdled that myself the day he went over and that's pretty impressive for someone my age, however I spent the rest of the day shaking and woke up the next morning feeling like I'd been in a car accident!

Our next step is to put up a wood privacy fence as soon as I can afford it. We will replace that side of the yard that butts up to the neighbors with the dogs, there is already chain link. That part will be moved to where we have a temporary snow fence at the moment. Unfortunately our neighbors are not responsible with their dogs and in the dark of the morning a very large and not too happy 80 pounder has met me at my car.

The 6' wood fence will have the smooth side facing the inside of my yard and because it's comfortably within our property line the ugly side will be facing the neighbors property and there is absolutely nothing they can do about it. If they make a stink about it I will remind them how many times I have NOT called the police about their irresponsible actions regarding their dogs.

I look forward to having this fence to block them out of my life as much as possible because they have been a problem for me for the 25 years I have lived I this house.

we were thinking a 7-8 foot fence with a sharp angle inward since these fools are trying to kill me with worry

odd thing that is keeping them in the yard right now is my husband has been tilling the back yard and its all soft, they seem to really enjoy that for now. until the novelty wears off

the posts are about 13 feet apart with bracers every 5 feet at the moment

will post more when we start getting things going, it's a bit hard to do all these things right away with an 8 month old lol but we'll get it

No Offence LOL but your dogs are smarter than you at the mo! So you have to think like they do and the go that extra mile to out smart them! It's a challnge and i am sure they like the challenge though Anothe thing keep it fun this side of the fence and they will be less likely to want to esplore the otherside the fence! Good luck and keep us posted!

Have you considered a coyote roller fence? There are both commercially made models and homemade ones that are equally effective.

Some other ideas I ran across tonight on fb:
In addition to ensuring all of your dog’s needs are being met and ruling out other underlying causes for jumping such as separation anxiety or searching for mates to breed with, here are a few suggestions to prevent your dog even being able to jump the fence.
  • Use PVC plastic piping or large rubber tubes, at least 5 to 6 inches in diameter, cut lengthwise down the centre. Place them along the top of your fence. This makes a curved, slippery surface that a dog cannot get a grip on to get over the top of the fence.
Alternatively, place a small diameter PVC pipe inside a larger diameter pipe and hang these on a cable suspended above the fence to create a ‘roller bar’ which a dog’s paws cannot hold onto.
  • Erect a shorter, interior fence two or three feet from the outside fence, preventing him from getting a running start. Plant shrubs a couple feet from the inside of the fence, again breaking that running start.
  • Place "cat netting" along the fence at an angle so that your dog cannot get a foothold on the fence.

Quick update
.
They ripped the netting, so we gave up on that, we are currently working at making the fence jump-proof high, and working on getting things for them to do and play with placed around the yard, the chickens keep them close (we dont let them play with the chickens, though Kaylee and Blue have both managed to kill one each)
.
we are also working at getting the whole 5 acers fenced in so they have a larger home area to roam
.
More updates as we go,
