What is the Best Fencing for Dogs?

The answer to this question depends on your dog(s), but as a general rule there are do’s and don’ts. For instance, relying on an invisible fence is generally a bad idea as the technology can malfunction, and it can give your dog(s) fear of leaving the yard. Chain link fence also is problematic as many dogs find a way to get their snouts or paws stuck in them. So what is the best fencing for dogs?best-fencing-for-dogs

For the jumpers: wood panel fencing

A common issue for safely containing dogs is preventing escapes via jumping. You’d be surprised how high your furry friend can jump when they smell or hear something they want to give chase. Wood panel fencing is tall and doesn’t give dogs any gripping points to help them jump and escape. Plus, they are aesthetically pleasing and make great fences in general.

For the barkers: vinyl fencing

Dogs who are prone to constant barking do best in enclosures with minimum visibility of what’s going on outside of your property. Vinyl fencing is already one of the top choices for privacy, and effectively blocks view in or out for your pets. This is another attractive dog fence option as vinyl fencing comes in a variety of styles and colors.

For the diggers: puppy picket and aluminum fencing

Perhaps your dog isn’t much of a jumper, or isn’t tall enough to escape over the fence. However, they may still be an escape artist at getting out through digging. This is a common issue that is fixed with aluminum fencing and puppy picket. Puppy picket has shorter picket spacing on the bottom of the fence to prevent small dogs and puppies from escaping. In addition, general aluminum fencing pickets and posts make it difficult for diggers to escape due to the shape of the pickets and posts.
