Ways to Dog Proof Your Garden
Stop your dog from digging up the garden
Dogs love to dig. He’s not doing it to annoy you but it’s a natural instinct. The reasons dogs dig vary but it could be:
- Trying to escape
- Keeping warm/cool/dry
Dogs are social animals if they are bored, they may seek friendship outside of the garden. Your dog proof garden may not be quite so dog-proof! Firstly look at the reason he’s digging out. Is he hunting or going after livestock or is he bored? If he’s bored then adding in some toys and making sure he is not left alone for long periods should help solve the issue. If he’s digging out to hunt or chase livestock then looking at your fencing is the way forward.
- Consider lifting the height of the existing fence
- Adding concrete around the bottom of the fence
- Installing an electronic dog fence
- Installing a dog door so that the dog can move freely between the garden and house. Plexidor is a great quality door.

In this situation creating a safe and secure outdoor area is essential. Sadly livestock attacks have been on the increase over the last few years. Farmers, quite rightly need to protect their livestock and livestock have welfare rights as well. Securing your garden equates to responsible dog ownership. In rural areas you may be able to install Deer Fencing which can be effective but very costly. Another alternative is a dog run or kennel but of course, this restricts the dog and can add to boredom and anxiety issues. Again, the most effective method both in monetary and effectiveness is the electronic dog fence. The dog fence will cover the driveways so if a gate is left open the dog is contained and can be run over any terrain. It’s also incredibly cost-effective compared to kennels and stock fences!
DogFence have been keeping dogs and cats safe for nearly 20 years using the electronic dog fence. Our Professional Installation team have trained tens of thousands of pets and we wer invited to meet and consult with DEFRA in 2018 to demonstrate our products and service.
