Adopting a pet has become popular in the last two years when most people have stayed home more. Having a pet is a large responsibility, and managing exercise and pet safety are two major pet priorities. Some may wonder if having a fenced-in backyard is necessary for owning a pet dog. While it is not absolutely necessary, there are plenty of benefits to installing a fence for your dog. See below why this is the case.
One of the tenants of the utmost freedom for your pet dog is to set boundaries. Setting rules and boundaries in place help any pet thrive. Therefore, in a contained yard with ample room to roam or run around, your pet can feel free to explore where it likes and still remain safe and supervised. While running out of the yard might not be a problem for every dog, a secure fence can prevent your pet from running out into the street or into other people’s properties.
Within this contained space, your dog also gets the benefit of exercise. You won’t have to rely solely on walks and indoor playtime to keep your pet well-exercised. The free time to run around in the fresh air without going to the park is certainly an asset.
Peace of Mind
While a fence is not foolproof, it can help you have reasonable peace of mind. You can know that your dog will not run out from the backyard in pursuit of a rabbit or a squirrel or to greet passing neighbors. You can also have the peace of mind that trespassers are less likely to invade in general. A fence gives your mind a break from needing to constantly surveil your pet when it’s outside.
Finding the Right Type of Fence
Different types of fences are available to suit your security needs. Often, a wood picket or privacy fence is enough to keep your pet dog in bounds. One should consider other ways that a fence can benefit you when making your decision. For example, could you benefit from added privacy, and would you prefer a low-maintenance material like vinyl or composite?
