3 Thing to Consider When Building a Fence For Dogs
Building a Fence for Dogs? There are some things to consider first...
Let's face it, you could build a gorgeous fence and make it so that your digging dog won't be able to escape in that manner. You finish your project and let the dog out, next thing you know... you didn't build it high enough! Does this look familiar?
When deciding on what to do with your dogs to best secure them at home, here are 3 Things to Consider When Building a Fence for Dogs:
- Does your dog dig? Digging is a big issue when you have a fence or just want to keep your yard looking nice. However, a digging dog can escape a fenced yard easily. But, as long as you are aware of this issue and remain vigilant you won't have to worry.
- Does your dog jump high? Some dogs can jump incredibly high, but also use what is around them, such as adjacent wall to kick off of. Next thing you know your dog became a ninja! .. and is now loose... running down the road. What was a quick, quiet escape, is now a long run of shame and you yelling like a mad person around your neighborhood....
- Can your dog climb things? I don't mean the ninja-bounce wall climb, I mean really climb? There is nothing like thinking you are just going to go use the rest room real quick when you have a climbing dog. It literally only takes a couple seconds.
As you can see- as much as a fence looks nice and can give peace of mind and privacy for you and your family, when it comes to dogs, a fence can be a challenge! Maybe in the end a dog tie out is not a bad idea to have on hand just in case.
