Dogs have always been called man’s best friend. Who wouldn’t want to give the best to their best friend? And more importantly, do whatever you can to try and keep them safe. This is where many families turned to fencing in their yard for their furry friends. This article will help you figure out which fence is best for your dog and also your budget.
Chain-link fence is the winner for the budget fence option for pets. It is not the most aesthetically pleasing, but this can be helped with a vinyl coat or vines and plants covering the fence. This also can help with privacy if that is a desire for your fence. These fences do not hide your yard from those looking in, but it also doesn’t obstruct your view as much when you want to look out. As for keeping your dog in the yard though, it is everything you will need while not breaking the bank.
If privacy and looks matter more to you than just simply the cheapest choice, but you’re still on a budget, a wooden fence is the perfect option for you. It is still cheaper compared to the later options while giving you a much better look. If privacy is of importance to you, it is one of the most private options of all fences. The taller height than most fences close your yard in nicely, giving you and your furry bff a safe, closed in oasis to enjoy.
Vinyl or metal fences are the choice if you just want the best overall fence for your dog. These will give you the most options for looks. Who said protecting your dog can’t look good as well? It will offer you the same privacy as wood, but for a slightly larger up front fee. The benefit comes later as they are much easier to maintain than wood and will last longer. Put a little extra money down up front and you will save in the long run while also having the best looking protection for your fluffy little four-legged family members.
Finally, we need to discuss picket fences. These are an American classic. The white picket fence has always been representation of the American dream. For that reason, it is the favorite choice of many! Despite this though, it is unfortunately not the best for those with pets. If you have a really small dog it can still work for you. Anything other than that though drastically increases the chances of your dog escaping. Most picket fences are shorter which will allow many dogs to just jump over them, unlike with the wooden or vinyl fences. Maybe your dog isn’t a jumper though but he’d still like to reach what’s on the other side, the pickets that make up the slats lining the fence are easily broken by a dog who really wants to get past it. Unlike the chain-link fences diamond pattern, which prevents this or the taller thicker boards on the wooden and vinyl fences, the picket fence is more beauty than rugged protection your fluffy friend needs.
