One of the most common reasons people need fencing is for protection of their pets and other animals. Fences allow your dogs to play outside without you having to worry about them running away or getting into trouble somewhere they shouldn’t be. Animals can still enjoy all of the benefits of being outside, and you can rest easy knowing exactly where they are at all times. When it comes to choosing the correct fencing solution for your furry friends, you’ll want to keep a few things in mind.

 

First, it’s important to take note of the personality and overall presence of your pet. Are they energetic and always looking to explore new places? Are they independent and not great with strangers? Consider your animal’s demeanor when deciding what kind of fence is right for you. Beyond their personality, the physical height and age of your pets may be a huge factor to think of as well. Bigger dogs will need bigger fences, puppies will need a higher level of security, and pets that are prone to attacking will need a durable fencing solution. Every pet is different, and depending on your residence type and location, finding a fence that meets all of your lifestyle and animal needs can be extremely challenging. 

 

Privacy Fencing

 

Privacy fencing is great to cover all of your bases when it comes to security, privacy, and protection. With an extensive range of heights and styles, there’s truly something for everyone. Dogs are good jumpers, but likely won’t be able to hop over any privacy fence. This type of fencing is also nice because you can decide whether you’d like the fence to be completely secure like a wall, or if gaps between boards is better for your lifestyle. If your pets like to watch strangers pass by or interact with the other neighborhood animals, leaving a bit of space in the fence for them to see through would go a long way. On the other hand, for animals prone to barking or getting angry at people passing by, it may be a good idea to get a fence they can’t see through.

 

Privacy fencing not only protects what’s most important, but it looks great doing it too! This fencing has an extensive range of style and design options, so you don’t have to sacrifice beauty for functionality. For folks who don’t have a pet but are considering one for the future, privacy fencing is your best bet for overall security. 

 

Picket Fencing

 

Picket fencing is a suburban classic for curb appeal and general privacy. This style of fencing tends to have gapping between the boards. If your animals like to see what’s going on outside of the property line, this is a great option. However, picket fencing is typically shorter than privacy fencing options. We’d recommend this style for smaller animals or pets that are a bit older and less likely to want to run away. 

 

Picket fencing also works well as a barrier for something like a garden or a pool. Keeping your pets separated from areas they shouldn’t be in is a great use of this fencing solution. This way, if your pets do get over the fence, they’re still on your property where you can watch them safely. 

 

Chain Link Fencing

 

Chain link fencing is a common style of fencing for cities and areas with a larger number of residents. As very durable structures, these fences do a fantastic job of keeping pets safe. Although they do have holes that animals can grab onto, as long as the fence is high enough, it should do the job just fine. Chain link fences are extremely protective and safe, but unfortunately lack curb appeal. Since the fence is metal, it tends to look a bit industrial and may be better suited for commercial properties like dog parks or zoos. If looks aren’t an issue for you, these fences are a great option for keeping your furry friends safe and well-protected for years to come.
