Raising my fence height

I have a 4 ft fence that the dog can jump over. Has anyone got an inexpensive fix to raise the height? I was thinking of a sheet of corrugated iron or palings attatched horizontally. Any tips?

Re: raising my fence

Lattice is usually the go-to @elle, whether for dogs or intruders as its relatively flimsy so it can't usually be climbed. You can also grow climbers on it. Here's a couple of options, they just slide over the top of your existing fence so are very easy:
