If you have a dog, chances are you’ll need some high-quality dog fencing, too. How strong is your current fence? Whether it’s in the front yard or the backyard, Spot will probably try to a way to escape and manage some mischief. As long as your dog is properly trained, they probably can’t get up to much trouble. But even the best-behaved dogs still need to be kept fenced in, for their safety, and for others. Here are some options to think about when you’re looking for newer dog fences.
Electrified Dog Fencing
Sometimes, a fence you can’t see is more beneficial than a fence you can see. But buyer beware because an invisible or electrified fence for your dog isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. If you’re concerned about safety, it may not a good idea to install this type of fence. After all, these barriers could prove hazardous to both your furry friend and anyone unlucky enough to stop and greet them. To ensure this type of fence achieves its full potential, you’ll also have to train your dog for it. And in all fairness, the additional training may not work out, so perhaps you should look elsewhere.
A Temporary Fence or Kennel
Sometimes, a temporary fence or a small fenced-in kennel may provide the solution you want. But these can be problematic for larger and taller dogs, who could feel too squeezed in. Plus, in such a tight space, they might not be able to get the exercise they need. If a dog is cooped up for too long, they’ll be bursting with excess energy, which in turn can be a headache for you and your neighbors. If you need to use one of these fences, only use them if you have a smaller or shorter dog.
New Dog Fencing for Your Yard
What happens if all else fails? Maybe the other options discussed here simply aren’t practical. In that case, you should consider brand new dog fencing for your yard. You can surround your home’s lot with these fences:
Not only will your faithful pup have more room to roam, but these fences will also serve to protect them from outsiders. You can also keep them from running out into the street to chase a squirrel, butterfly, ball, or a mail carrier. Besides being safer, these fences, especially the privacy fences, can discourage your puppy from excessive barking.
