A few things to think of here.
First thing is to always think of how you can manage the situation safely while you are working on the problem. If there is any chance that Stitch can jump the fence or you see a possible fight brewing between Stich and Sadie I would say keep them out of the yard – or not in the yard at the same time unleashed. Always manage a problem until you have the training and tools to deal with it properly.
Next, you want to think of what is your goal and is it realistic. Do you want the dogs to not charge the actual fence line and/or do you not want them to bark too? Would it be ok if the barked but stayed away from the fence line or OK if they charged the fence line and just didnt bark?
Let me know since – depending on what you want we can try different plans.
