When you got your dog, the chances are you had visualised many things, did you consider fencing and freedom? Most likely you thought about things such as running with them around the park, taking them out for long walks, cuddling them on the sofa and playing with them in the garden? If you’d wanted a pet that stayed in one place, above all you would have bought a parrot.
Now consider what you dog gets up to when not under your watchful eye or your dog is home alone. Never presume you dog will sit patiently waiting for your return.
Dogs are curious and energetic and they love to explore. Caging them is not ideal, it is better to set boundaries and rules early on to allow you to give them freedom from being fenced in to one small area. Even when you do confine them to one room, you still need to ensure that space is safe.
Dogs Need Freedom
Play For Dogs
Dogs are intelligent animals and can suffer from boredom. If your dog is bored, and does not have enough to do, it will suffer or engage in inappropriate behaviour or simply be determined to escape and go exploring.
Exercise for dogs
A dog needs regular exercise and regular opportunities to walk and to run free under proper supervision outside, but with the freedom our fence gives they can do so unsupervised in an open garden.
What A Dog Needs To Behave Normally
- make sure your dog has enough to do so that it does not become distressed or bored
- ensure your dog has access to safe toys and suitable objects to play with and chew
- provide a shaded place so your dog can rest undisturbed when it wants to
- provide your dog with regular opportunities for exercise and play with people or other friendly dogs
- give your dog the exercise it needs, at least daily, to keep your dog fit, active and stimulated
- seek veterinary advice if you become aware of changes in behaviour, as your dog may be distressed, bored, ill or injured
- train your dog to behave well, ideally from a very young age
- only use positive reward based training – avoiding harsh, potentially painful or frightening training methods
- think about garden boundaries and keeping your pet safe and unable to escape.
- consider our certified legal wireless dog freedom fence system for both inside and outside your home/grounds.
