As far as owning a dog is concerned, a proper fence is a necessity. But choosing the right fence can be a process unto itself. Not all fences are going to do an optimal job at keeping your pooch safely inside the territory of your house. Some animals prefer to be able to see outside, and can become bored without the stimulation of being able to interact with the outside world. On the other hand, some dogs are more nervous and don’t like to see anything pass by your house. The same fence that works really well for the first dog has the second dog riled up in a mess of perpetual barking. And that’s not a situation anyone wins. It pays to be informed, so here is a list of the different types of fences and the benefits they have to offer certain kinds of dogs:
Wood fences are a fantastic all-around kind of fence, but to be aware of which wooden fence is best for your pet dog, you need to be aware of the different designs a wooden fence can have. Wooden fences are made from vertical posts of wood joined by one or more horizontal planks of wood. You have a lot of flexibility in and around how many posts you have, or the height of the posts, or the style of them. Choosing which fence is best depends on their disposition, which is something you know best.
Iron fences are very strong fences that typically have a lot of visible space beyond their bars. Iron fences are a good fit for strong, sociable dogs. Not everyone’s a dog person, and having a good, sturdy fence from which your dog can run behind can be helpful for people who might be unnerved by the slight shaking that can occur when a large dog pounces on a lighter kind of fence.
Chain Link Fence
Chain link fences are a commonly used form of fence for dogs that like to jump really high. The kinds of dogs that like to explore are typically very sociable and require a lot of stimulation in order to be happy, so having a viewport to the outside is very important for such pets. Chain link fences are special in that they’re more space than fencing material, but still do the job at keeping them safely inside perfectly well. As an added bonus, chain link fences are highly versatile and can easily fit any height requirements that might be required of your four-legged Houdini.
