Fencing is an important part of providing a safe environment for your dog. Dogs that are allowed to run free are exposed to many toxins and opportunities for trauma that can shorten their life.
A fenced in back yard is a great way to allow your dog to get exercise while safely on your property.
When choosing a fence, you need to consider the style, size, stability, appearance, materials, colors, durability, and height. The most common fence is referred to as a perimeter fence. This fence extends around the circumference of your yard. There are many styles and types to choose from.
Dog fencing can be made of wood, chain link, vinyl as well as other materials. The material, style and color are personal choices. Whatever you choose, the dog fencing should be durable and ideally require low maintenance. When shopping for dog fencing, consider how secure it will be. Ensure that there are no spots where your dog can get under or through the fence. One of the most important factors to consider is the height. You want to keep your dog in and also keep other dogs out.
