We went with 6', though I think 5' would be fine unless the dog has a history of jumping fences.

My male GSD can jump 5' and he's not a jumper by nature... it was just no problem for him to get over. My male border collie can almost jump our 6' privacy.. I'd personally go no shorter than 6' with my dogs.. Definitely privacy because they're both more likely to go over a see through fence. :/

alot of dogs will respect a fence, no matter the height
Mine is 5 feet, a couple of my gsd's could have cleared it with no problems, and would at times when I was in the front yard and they weren't.
But then, my other dogs respect the fence and have no issue with even thinking about jumping it..

I had a 130 rott go over a 6 ft fence; he broke his penis; got uramnic poisoning it killed him! The vet said he saw that happen too horses; but not a dog said he read about it
This dog was never taught to jump. The neighbor had a dog in heat. Bill
