A dog is an expensive best friend. Between veterinary bills, food, toys, and training, the dollars can add up. If you are a homeowner, the ideal situation is to let your pup run around in the backyard and just bark when he wants to come inside. This isn’t possible without some sort of barrier to prevent him from bolting out into the street or surrounding yards in the neighborhood. Electric fences are the priciest option for your dog. Looking into a professionally built fence is another viable choice.
Install a chain link fence in your yard.
Animals hate when they can smell another animal but can’t see it. Wood and aluminum fences provide little view to the outside world for dogs. Chain link fences have thin, open wire but are sturdy enough to hold even a large dog inside. Sometimes loud noises can scare the bravest of dogs, so having a fence that will keep him from running away from the sound is necessary. Some large dogs can break through wood fences if prompted.
Security is an added benefit to having a chain link fence.
Security in this sense goes both ways for your dog and for outsiders. Your dog may be very gentle, so a fence can protect from other aggressive dogs wandering up the lawn. Other pet owners are sometimes neglectful and do not pay attention to how their dogs interact with others. In turn, if your dog does not play well with others, a chain link fence can help avoid a potential lawsuit of hurting a child or smaller dog.
Chain link fences are easy to maintain and extremely affordable.
Wear and tear on a chain link fence happens over many years, so your property will get the best bang for your buck. These kinds of fences are customizable and can be tailored to fit you and your dog’s needs. Not much care or effort needs to be put into a chain link fence, as it takes the beating of the weather. You can paint and refinish a chain link fence to prevent rusting.
