I'm thinking about putting up a chain link fence so Bella can be free while outside. What height is recommended? 4ft? 5ft? or 6ft? She will only be outside while I am watching her, so I don't really have to worry about her escaping.

I would agree that higher is always better. I was playing fetch with Jade and accidentally threw the ball into the neighbors yard. We have a 6 ft foot but Jade was very upset that she couldn't get her ball. She jumped up and her head cleared the top of the fence! And she is only 9 months old! I don't know know if she will ever be able to actually jump it but I really don't want to find out!

Go with 6' if you can. I have one gate that's 4' and I need to replace it. Even with 6' you'll need to be careful, I had a lab mix that could jump them, none of my gsds have tried so far and I hope it stays that way. We rarely let the outside without keeping an eye on them.
