Sorry, have to laugh about hanging out with the kids at the bus stop!!! My guy Mo would dig under but only to get to me gardening in the front yard or to come look in the front window where hubby and I were watching tv. We just don't leave any of our boxers outside for more than a few minutes alone. We go out to play together or they go out to do business and are called back in.

Oh, goodness! Yes, ours can also get out, and the gate portion where they climb (the rest is block wall) is nearly 5' high. They take a running leap and hook the front paws over the top of the gate and then pull themselves up and spring over.
But they will only try to get out when you are not home. Like others have said
We have a HUGE crate for our 2 boxers. the Great Dane size.
Truthfully though, they are much calmer if we don't restrict their movement. We had the crate backing to the doggie door to protect our furniture but the younger one is a SERIOUS HOUDINI. Wish we had video taped some of his escapades because we would come home to find real mysteries. Ha Ha- I'm sure all boxer owners can relate.
Point being, once they were 2 and 3 y.o. we just left the house without locking them up or restricting them in any way. Just left. Problem solved. With full run of the house and yard they just relax and chill out inside. Maybe this eliminates the stress of us leaving? It's just life as usual. Not sure.

So, I guess this answers my questions on if a 4 foot fence is high enough, bummer.

you can train them to stay in a 4 ft but you get to spend LOTS of Quality yard time doing it LOL

He used to slip under the fence. So, I lowered the fence. Now, he jumps OVER the fence in the morning and hangs out with the kindergarten kids at the bus stop. Is there anything I can do to stop this?! He isn't restricted to just the back yard. He has an electric door that gives him full access to the basement too. Will this stop with age?

Please help!
We had that same problem too. We put THREE rows of electric wire and Bruno STILL scaled the fence. So the only sure fire way to fix the problem is the use chicken wire and enclose the top of your fence. If its a large fence then section off an area that you can enclose the top with chicken wire.
