Adopting Your First Dog? 3 Tips For Getting The Right Backyard Fencing

Ivan May

Bringing home a new dog can be a great change of pace for your lifestyle, but it does require a few changes to your home and even the yard. If you want your dog to be able to enjoy your backyard, you're going to need to get fencing installed to keep them safe. If you're unsure of what kind of fencing to get and want the best fit for your new dog, it's a good idea to look into the following tips and how they can make a big difference in making your fencing more secure.

Get the Fence Installed Deep

When getting fencing installed in your yard, it becomes important to look into having the fence dug several feet deep. Many people make the mistake of having their fencing installed like normal, without considering the unique risks that come with having a dog. Your dog can easily dig underneath the fence and end up crawling out from a hole they've made.

Having the fence dug deeper can prevent this problem and ensure that your dog is kept secure.

Choose Fencing That's Not Easily Scalable

Along with making sure that your dog isn't able to climb under the fence, you'll also want to go through the trouble to ensure that they cannot climb over it as well. Some fencing is more easily scalable then others, making it a smart idea to ask for advice over what kind of fencing will be the most secure. In many cases, you'll find that vinyl and Plexiglass fencing is a little tougher for a dog to scale.

Wood and chain link can be easier for your dog to grip onto and climb over, making it vital to consider the height and the risks associated with your dog being able to escape.

Avoid Fences That Are Visible

If you're concerned about your new fencing being as secure as possible for your dog, it's a smart idea to look into getting a fence that's not see-through. Some fencing is transparent in material, leading to your dog barking more due to being able to see outside the yard. This can be a problem when you want your dog to be quiet, while still getting fencing.

Choosing fencing that's a good fit for your dog isn't a one-size-fits-all choice, so you'll need to look into your options and the size of your dog first. Figuring out what kind of fencing will be best for your dog will ensure that it's as safe as possible and that your dog will be secure in your yard. Contact a company that specializes in custom fences for additional advice.
