If you are considering getting a dog or have recently brought one into your home, don’t just bring in a new member of the family haphazardly. Make your property pet friendly. Plan ahead and install a perimeter fence so your furry friend can enjoy the outdoors safely and happily, with plenty of healthy playtime to keep them happy and fit throughout their life. When planning the best perimeter fence for your new pet, it is important to keep a number of factors in mind.
Consider Your Dog’s Temperament When Choosing A Perimeter Fence
If you prefer large, classically aggressive, or high energy dog breeds, you will need a taller and sturdier fence. If you favor tinier breeds you will need something less heavy duty. Height and weight play a large role in what kind of fence you will need to keep your dog safe. Certain breeds are also known for digging, chewing, and other less than perimeter fence friendly behaviors, so do your research. If you prefer to adopt rescue dogs, these types of dogs can be anxious and often benefit from a fence which blocks their view beyond your yard. Trained guard dogs also need to be kept away from strangers in unknown situations. Keep these things in mind when designing your perimeter fence.
Consider Your Dog’s Full Grown Size
While certain dogs can fit in a purse throughout their lives, others start out purse sized and can grow to weigh more than a full grown adult human. If you favor Great Danes, Saint Bernards, Mastiffs, or other such gentle giants, be sure to get a fence that will contain your dog and keep them safe. Large dogs can easily jump over too short fences when they become excited, and cause all sorts of problems. Think ahead when designing your perimeter fence if you are a big dog lover.
