Before You Build Your Fence, Consider These Tips

Having a dog is a perennial joy for human beings. That’s why they are called “man’s best friend.” The nickname has seemed to stick over the years, and for good reason. But owning a canine is not without its obstacles and annoyances. One of the primary issues homeowners are faced with is how to construct the right kind of fence for your dog. While there is no formula that we can use that will tell you the proper fence type for each individual breed, a general rule to follow is that bigger dogs merit additional consideration.

Why Do Dogs Want To Escape?

Excellent question. Before we get too far into the weeds here, let’s take a step back and think about why dogs tend to escape our boundaries in the first place. One major reason dogs escape is because they are experiencing some degree of social frustration and isolation. They might be breaking free because they are lonely, although we don’t think the instinct we’d characterize emotionally is that articulated. Habits you might want to reevaluate include:

  • Leaving your dog alone all day, every day
  • Giving them a somewhat bleak environment to play in — give them some toys
  • Not giving them the opportunity to play with other dogs on a somewhat regular basis
  • Not walking your dog every day
  • Whether you’ve taught your dog tricks or games like fetch

In part two, we’ll take a look at some practical tips you should consider before installing that chain-link fence, or whatever you might have in mind. Keep a look out for that post in the short future, and make sure you reach out to us today if you need fencing services that include fence installation and fence repair!
