Considering fencing for dogs…. now spring is in the air! There is nothing quite like getting out and about in the fresh countryside air, and taking a walk. This time of year is when many people decide, they would like a pet to accompany them, on there great adventures.
As a new pet owner, one of the first considerations should have is to ensure the fencing, you have is suitable, to effectively contain your dog.
There are a number of reasons fenced gardens are beneficial for dogs and their owners.
Some of the most important include:
- A fenced yard will give a dog room to run, jump, and play, and encourage him to get plenty of exercise.
- Fenced gardens help prevent boredom. Dogs who get the chance to chase squirrels, smell interesting things, and bark at passing pedestrians will enjoy a ton of mental stimulation.
- A fenced garden makes it easy to just let your dog go outside and answer nature’s call.
- Fences are great for those who cannot go to the park. Many dogs have a fun filled time at the local park, but some are not capable of playing nicely with others. Other dogs can’t go to the park for medical reasons.
- Fencing may help your dog ward off intruders. Even relatively small dogs will often bark up a storm when strangers approach, so a fenced garden may help keep your home a bit safer.
Fences do not replace walks, you will still need to take your dog out daily. Dogs need to explore and enjoy wonderful smells and pee in all the right spots and need that stimulation.
Dog Proof Fencing
Fences are obviously not a one-size-fits-all item. You’ll have to go with a style that suits your home, your tastes, and your dog. In actuality, dog fences are, almost, always “custom built” to satisfy these and other criteria.
This means you’ll need to think carefully, about a number of issues, when selecting the best dog escape proofing for your home.
