What You Need to Know About Building a Dog Fence, Kenai, Alaska

As a dog owner, you want to do whatever is necessary to protect your beloved four-legged companion. For many pet parents, that means building a dog fence to keep Fido safe and close to home. Before installing one, however, keep the following considerations in mind.

Breed & Temperament

Your dog's breed and temperament will have a lot to do with which type of dog fence you choose. Dogs are smart creatures, and if they are prone to escaping enclosed areas, a taller fence of at least six feet is a necessary safety measure. 

Furthermore, large dogs likely need more room to roam, which will, in turn, increase the amount of fencing material that will need to be purchased. Small dogs, on the other hand, might try to squeeze through gaps between posts or in the holes of chain link fences, so keep their size in mind. You may also want to implant rocks around the perimeter to discourage digging.

Materials

Dogs who are easily excited by their surroundings are better served by close-together posts, like those seen in vinyl or wood fencing, which can obstruct their view and allow them to play, sniff, and relax in their own private space.
