There is perhaps no bond stronger than the one shared between the man and his dog. If you have a furry friend, you would do all things possible to create a peaceful environment for him. With pets comes great responsibility and you constantly have to be on your toes to entertain them.
Your dogs love outdoors and you know that it is essential for them to play out in the open. However, you cannot be physically there every time for your pet. Even when you take your pet outside for a morning or evening walk, you do it as a task. While your dog may want to bark at the birds sitting on the tree, you struggle to bring him back home as you have other household work to do.
You cannot leave your pet outside without supervision due to safety concerns. You don’t want your carelessness to become a tragic story for your pet. But there has to be something that can balance your dog’s need for outdoor living and your concerns for safety. If you have a yard in your house, thank your stars. You can easily install a guarded fence in your yard and provide a designated space to your canine.
Consult with a fencing company to get a cost estimate. Once that done, you are on your way to provide your furry friend with a safe outdoor safe. But before you confirm the purchase, you have to keep the following factors in mind:
1. Bigger Dogs Need Big Fences
If you have a German Shepherd, a Husky, or a Golden Retriever, a four-inch-long fence will not act as a safe enclosure. Your pet will easily jump off the fence. A six-feet or higher fence is recommended if you have big dogs. Also, besides the height of the fence, you should also consider the strength of your fence. Install a fence which is made up of high-quality vinyl and wood or composite material. Big dogs are strong and can easily chew off low-quality fences.
2. Make The Fence Impossible To Climb
A clever dog will find a way to climb a fence. When choosing a fence design, don’t go with chain fences. They provide footholds to your canine. Choose a fence with flat panels so that your dog doesn’t have any space to place his paws.
3. Add Some Privacy
Your dog would love to bark at other dogs or the squirrels. Their barking can be loud and may inconvenience your neighbors. It is also stressful for your dogs because they have the urge to attack the other animal, but they feel trapped. For your dog’s peace of mind, install solid opaque panels that hide your dog’s view and provides him with maximum privacy.
4. Involve Your Dog In Physical Activities
Big dogs require physical activities. If you have a small yard, your dog will not like being restricted to a small place. Keeping a dog in the yard doesn’t mean that your dog’s needs are met. Engage your dog in as many physical activities and let them have regular exercises. This will keep your dog healthy and happy.
Every pet owner wants to provide the best living environment to their furry friends. Dog fencing is a good way to let your dog enjoy the outside world in a safe space.
