Since “a tired dog is a happy dog” a key factor to your dog’s mental and physical health is exercise. The best fence for your dog would be an actual physical fence that is strong and secure. A physical fence is an actual fence that is installed in the ground securely. There are many factors in determining the best material by which to construct your fence.
At Pro Max Fence Systems, we like to help our customers by assessing their needs and in the case of a dog fence there are several things to consider.
We may be able to help there too. Oftentimes we purchase a house that has an existing fence and it is less than secure. Or perhaps you once had a smaller dog and now you’ve decided to “go BIG” with a larger dog. Maybe your new neighbor has a dog that doesn’t exactly get along with your dog. So, now what?
Please see our blog article about modifying existing fences.
While we do not offer invisible or electric fences, you may have an interest in this type of fence. If you are unsure if your dog is a good candidate for an invisible fence you may find an article excerpt by Pat Miller, Professional Dog Trainer helpful.
We’re all guilty of taking Rover off leash probably at least once because “he’s never run before” but the reality is that action can turn to tragedy very quickly. I volunteer with a local rescue, even worked there for a time, and the organization strongly recommends a physical fence.
No fence at all (or an electronic containment system) does little to safeguard your dog for reasons as obvious as running away and perhaps not so obvious as no protection against animals or people coming into your yard.
In conclusion, a fence is a great way to protect your family, pets and property. It should be installed by a professional offering a labor warranty and a material warranty as applicable for your protection. Pro Max Fence Systems can help you decide on the best way to do that.
