Poly Dog Fence Install
Fence installers that have never constructed a plastic dog fence may be wondering "Is this difficult to install than chain-link fence or electric fence for dogs?" Most homeowners have found that poly dog fencing is actually easier to install because it is lightweight.
See the below video of a plastic dog fence installation and hear the pros and cons of building one:
Video Tour: Cat Fence
The Kitty Corral Cat Fence is one of the most popular fence for cats to buy on the market; and it's no wonder why: It is easy to install at home; long-lasting and can secure multiple cats inside a perimeter without getting out and potentially attacked by wildlife.
In the below video, Texas Litter Control takes viewers on a video tour of the cat fence system. It stands tall even years after installation!
New: Cat Fitness Tracker!
Fit-bit like devices are taking over retail shops as more individuals try to shed pounds for the New Year; but how about pets?
The PurrSong Pendant for cats has not hit shelves quit yet; but will help cats lose weight and stay fit. Like other fitness activity trackers, the PurrSong Pendant uses Bluetooth to send updates and track activities. The cat fitness tracker does not have a price; but is hoping to release on the market for about $100.
The cat fitness tracker can be used outside when cats are running, jumping and playing in the fenced-in backyard. Like dogs, cats require at least 30 minutes of daily activity to stay lean. By fencing in cats, pet owners can play with their feline friends while bonding with their pets.
Why Fence In Yards?
Dogs and cats need at least 30 minutes of daily activity, increasing to an hour each day as the companion animal ages. Fencing is great to have at home for several reasons outside of exercise and entertainment. Here are a few important reasons why homeowners should consider installing pet fencing:
- Having fencing is convenient for homeowners to play with their pets. It requires just a few steps out the door to create a bonding opportunity to teach them to learn new tricks and play in a familiar atmosphere.
- Fencing keeps pets protected from external predators including strangers that may try to kidnap pets and wildlife that can potentially harm them. Deer rarely hurt pets; but coyotes, wolves and bear attacks on pets are much more frequent than we'd like to hear.
- Too busy to take pets to local dog parks? Fencing in yards is convenient for doggie play dates.
Pet enclosures are easy to install and will be appreciated in the spring and summer months when all family members want to be outside.
Why Buy Plastic Fence?
When we think about dog fencing, there are two types of fence that usually come to mind: electric dog fence and chain-link. Invisible dog fencing is considered inhumane, as it uses shock therapy to teach dogs to stay within properties; and chain-link are good choices for large dogs but not for tiny dogs.
For small dogs that do not chew or dig, it is worth considering to buy poly dog fencing. Plastic dog fencing is meant for small and calm dogs; but for large dogs that have high energy, it is not a recommended material.
Plastic dog fence rolls has strength grades ranging from 650-1400 pounds and a life expectancy of 20+ years.
Why Build Cat Fence
Like dogs, cats need time to explore the great outdoors; socialize with other companion animals and exercise. Without daily fitness activity, cats will become lethargic and risk health complications as they age. Cat owners may be hesitant to build cat fencing; but the systems on the market are strong, reliable and long-lasting.
Cat fencing is different than catios. Catios are box-shaped and will secure multiple cats. They include tops for wildlife and bird control and keep cats from escaping; however, catios do not offer cats a wide area for them to run and play. That's why cat fencing is better for homeowners with yard space to share with their feline friends.
Cat fencing is made from poly fence mesh and welded wire for added security to secure cats from all sides. While fence for cats do not include tops, they do include overhang extenders to block cats from escaping from the top - and to keep out deer, coyotes and other wild animals that may try to harm the kitties. Cat fencing is easy to install for the DIY'er and will last 20+ years.
