One reason you may consider for installing a fence on your property is to ensure the safety of your pet. Typically, there are two options: an underground fence (or electric fence) or a traditional physical fence. Generally, there are several things to consider when installing a fence for pet containment. These include:
The Size of Your Pet
This is a very crucial factor to always consider when installing a yard fence. Basically, you need to install a stronger and higher fence for effective containment of a large dog. Do not worry much about the distance between the rails since your pet is unlikely to fit via the opening. However, a high fence may not be necessary for a small dog; instead you need to consider the size of the openings in some fence styles, to make sure it is not possible for your pet to slip completely or partially through.
Temperament of Your Pet
It is worth noting that underground fences (electric fences) need certain training techniques for effective use. There are also some dogs which may need more privacy, via a traditional fence, for them to be content and safe in the area designated to them.
Type of Fence and Its Effectiveness
It is important that you consider installing a fence depending on your major concern and its effectiveness. For instance, you may choose to install an electric fence which also known as underground fence rather than conventional fencing in case you are mainly concerned with keeping your pet in the yard while maintaining visibility on your property.Pet Stop fences are an excellent option for maintaining boundaries for your pet without obstructing your property.You can fence your yard in many different ways and each and every style of fencing provides a different level of privacy and containment.
