Dog Fences

Dog owners are quickly learning the importance of installing a reliable, sturdy fence to keep their furry companions safe at home. In fact, if you’re hoping to adopt from a rescue or shelter, you will find that many of these institutions won’t adopt out to owners who don’t have a fenced-in yard. Just having any old fence isn’t good either, as some fence types don’t work for every dog and may be a safety hazard depending on your dog’s size, age, breed, and activity level. It’s important to go over all of your options and take your time to determine which fence is best for you and your dog.

Deck and Fence Connection is happy to help you go over the traits of your dog and determine the best fence that will keep them on your property while also prioritizing their safety.

What do you need to take into consideration when choosing the appropriate fence for your dog?

  • Dog Size and Behavior: Larger, more active dogs may require taller and sturdier fences. If your dog is a digger or a climber, consider this when selecting the fence type.
  • Local Regulations: Check with your local authorities and homeowner’s association for any restrictions on fence height, style, or material.
  • Budget: Your budget will influence your choice. Some options are more cost-effective, while others may require a larger upfront investment.
  • Aesthetics: Consider how the fence will look in your yard and how well it matches your home’s design.
  • Maintenance: Think about how much time and effort you’re willing to invest in maintaining the fence.

Wooden Fences

Pros: Wooden fences, such as privacy fences or picket fences, provide a classic and attractive look. They can offer privacy and keep your dog contained.

Cons: They may require regular maintenance, like staining or painting, to prevent rot and decay. Some dogs may chew or scratch wooden fences.

Vinyl Fences

Pros: Vinyl fences are low-maintenance and highly durable. They are resistant to rot, pests, and weathering, making them a long-lasting option for dog owners.

Cons: They can be more expensive upfront compared to some other materials.

Chain-Link Fences

Pros: Chain-link fences are cost-effective and durable. They allow good visibility both inside and outside the property, which can help keep your dog from feeling isolated.

Aluminum Fences

Pros: Aluminum fences are lightweight, durable, and resistant to rust. They can be ornamental and aesthetically pleasing, offering security and containment.

Cons: They may not be as sturdy as other options, and smaller dogs may be able to squeeze through the openings.
