Allowing a dog to roam free, knowing that they’ll be safe and find their way home would be ideal, but it’s not realistic. Canine companions are often curious, so, unfortunately, they must be contained. However, a fenced yard doesn’t have to be a negative thing. There are many ways that fencing can even benefit your furry friend. Today we’re going to discuss them. Keep reading!
Exercise is Essential
Just like with people, moving around is essential to keeping your dog healthy as well. A fenced yard will give your dog the freedom to run around, jump, play, and push your pet to exercise.
Fenced Yards Help With Mental Stimulation
Dogs tend to get bored relatively quickly. They need activities to keep them occupied and keep their minds going. A fence allows your pet to chase squirrels, smell the outdoors, and interact with your neighbors or pedestrians without causing a safety risk or being able to escape.
Can’t Take Your Dog to the Dog Park? No Problem
Taking your dog to the dog park may not always be possible. Maybe your schedule is packed, or you recognize that your dog may not play well with other dogs. There could also be medical reasons as to why your dog can’t go to the park. Whatever the reason may be, a fence allows your dog to be active and enjoy the outdoors. Spending time outside is beneficial for everyone, dogs included.
Dogs Discourage Trespassers
A fence in combination with a barking dog will ward off trespassers, thieves, and criminals. Even smaller dogs can protect you from anyone willing to cause you harm. Fences, in general, add an extra sense of safety and security. You can also rest well at night, knowing that no one will be able to steal your pet.
Don’t Have the Time to Take Your Dog on a Long Walk? No Problem!
Pet owners often take their dogs on a long walk so that they can relieve themselves. If you don’t have the time, a fence can make a bathroom break more convenient so that your dog won’t have to wait around for you. Also, your neighbor won’t complain about your dog ruining their property.
